Well, to be fair, the machine guns were more of a fashion statement than anything. I think the cops were tipped off that the bad guys had never actually fired one of them before.

Worst. Henchmen. Ever.

That bugged me too. I couldn't figure out why the city was held hostage for that long, as the ultimate goal is still to destroy Gotham. Why wait? Also, why didn't the Army or National Guard step in and do something?

That was the main thing that bugged me about the film.

The national guard approached the henchmen on the bridge and they were told that if there were any outside interference then they would detonate the bomb.

Except for Batman. He magically gets to re-enter the city after traveling around the world despite having no money or resources.

I copied this from IMDB but it explains things perfectly:

It was never stated where the prison was. So we have no idea how long it takes to get there. When Alfred mentions it to Bruce early on, he says in an "some more ancient part of the world." (The fort is in Jodhpur, India). It is also revealed that Miranda/Talia has a plane, when she says to Bruce: "We could leave. Tonight. Take my plane. Go anywhere we wanted." When Bane seized the reactor, it was mentioned that they had about 5 months before it blew up. That gives Bruce enough time for a return trip from anywhere in the world. Gotham wasn't technically quarantined, as food shipments were allowed in. Citizens just weren't allowed out. That's how the Special Forces team managed to get into the city. Not to mention, Bruce was able to travel around the world living among the criminal underworld for 7 years when he ran away from Gotham. Therefore he clearly has the knowledge and capability to survive without his fortunes. The mythos of the Bane character tells us that the prison that Bane escaped is located on fictional island republic called Santa Prisca in the Caribbean Sea, which would have made for a very short flight for Bane and Bruce, though it's never specified in the movie.

One possible theory is that he can walk on ice with 'sure-footing' as shown in his training with Ra's al Ghul in the first film, Batman Begins . This is actually confirmed visually when Batman meets Gordon halfway along the ice, walking effortlessly towards him. Another idea is that as Wayne Manor is said to be located outside the city limits (and perhaps off the main island of Gotham), he could have gone back to his home and taken the Bat and flown to the bridge or just beyond it. The last time wee see the Bat landing is inside the Batcave as Batman returns after dropping off Selina Kyle. This last theory is supported by the notion that Wayne Manor is not shown to have been looted and occupied by the Blackgate Prison escapees. It is also shown in a Map of Gotham city produced as part of the viral marketing, similarly to other known maps of Gotham from comics, that Wayne Manor is outside of the main set of islands that were under Bane's martial law. The film itself establishes direct explanation for getting onto the island, with the CIA agents sneaking into Gotham undercover as men delivering supplies. This may not have been the route Wayne took to get back, but it proves that other people were also successfully sneaking into the city during Occupied Gotham. In the end a guy like Bruce Wayne, while living a double life as Batman for a few years, probably learned of several or many different ways to gain access to a city that could be so easily cut off from the outside world, i.e., as Batman, he'd have to know alternate routes and access points to track criminals and find their hideouts, etc.

The whole walking on ice scene is also iffy.

When they first show that scene there are three guys on the ice and one falls through. Later, when Gordon is on the ice there's at least a dozen of people, plus Batman and not one crack ?

This film is filled with silly moments. If a hack directed it I'd probably look past the flaws but from Nolan there's no excuse.

He's a ninja like that.

I really think Batman whupping Bane's ass himself might have really helped the film a bunch. That is my biggest gripe.
