Default Re: The Dark Knight Rises Plot Holes

Every story has contrivances that could be seen as overly convenient if put under the same scrutiny as TDKR has been. TDK being a prime example of that (it is positively chock-full of narrative shortcuts, particularly the damn-near omniscience The Joker has over the plot of the film). What matters is whether one appreciates the resulting story that's being told with the help of all these contrivances and conceits. Because if you're truly enjoying the narrative as it unfolds (and find that it retains its value on repeat viewings), then in retrospect, a lot of those choices may be seen as ultimately necessary cogs in the wheels of the film's plot.
