In Begins, Bruce would never ever pull a gun on Joe Chill. That was out of character for him and it was the screenwriters just using that to give Bruce a low point before he leaves Gotham. It was used just so Rachel could say "Your father would be ashamed"
In Dark Knight, Bruce wouldn't invade people's privacy with the sonar device he uses to catch The Joker. Again, out of character, especially for Bruce who is one of the most private persons in the world. Again, it was screenwriters using something he wouldn't do to say hey look at what he's willing to do to get the joker.
1)Uh, it would have been out of character if he was Batman, (Like in Year Two) not before. It was a turning point.
I dunno how many Batman comics you've read, but he's not all that respectful of people's privacy. He sold out Robin's identity to his girlfriend, and exploited the JLA'S weaknesses for what he saw as the greater good.
