Continuity: When the Giant is being electrocuted at the power station, he is on his knees, struggling with the wires. After Hogarth cuts the power, he falls slowly backward. But there's a cut right before he actually hits the ground, and suddenly his feet are out in front of him and not folded underneath anymore.
Continuity: When the Iron Giant follows Hogarth home they cross a railwayline and the Giant starts to eat the steel rail. During this scene you can see the distance of the railway sleepers changing from a fair distance apart to close together over the course of the shots. In the same scene you can also see that, although there is a crossing with lights, no vehicle could possibly pass as the rail has no crossover facility at that level.
Continuity: Kent Mansley, the investigating government officer, can be seen sitting (humiliated) in the back of an army truck in a convoy leaving the scrapyard (after he has been told by the general that 'he will be in charge of the toilets from now on'). A few minutes later he is driving a 'civilian' car in the middle of that same convoy.
