Do you really need to do it with a regexp ? Here's some lisp to search
for all these problematic tags.

(while (and (not (eobp)) (search-forward "[-" nil t))
  (unless (search-forward "-]" (point-at-eol) 'move)
     (message "Problem found, please fix and hit C-M-c to continue")
     (recursive-edit)))

If you really want a regexp, you could use
(re-search-forward "\\[-\\([^-]\\|-[^]]\\)*\n")

(i.e. match a "[-" not followed by "-]" on the same line)

At the C-M-% prompt, you can enter the regexp as \[-\([^-]\|-[^]]\)* followed 
by a
litteral newline, i.e. C-q C-j.

HTH,
