Kill Bill: Volume 1

Continuity mistake: When The Bride is slashed on the upper back by O-Ren in their fight scene she collapses and lands on her back in the snow. After she gets up and the fight continues, there is no blood spot on the snow where she was lying.

Revealing mistake: When Gogo is fighting the bride, misses and hits herself with the mace, as she falls backwards onto the table, you can see the stunt double's hairy legs.

Revealing mistake: When the swordmaker writes "Bill" on the window, take a close look. The window has been wiped before (as happens at the end of the scene) and "re-steamed" - you can see the outlines of the wiping from earlier takes, with a clear contrast between that pane and the others.

Continuity mistake: When Vernita Green takes her daughter's picture from the notice board in the kitchen she holds it at the top left corner when the camera is behind her. The shot changes to in front of her and she holds it by the bottom left corner, the shot moves behind her again and she holds it by the top left corner.

Continuity mistake: After cutting off Boss Tanaka's head, O-Ren whips some of the blood on her sword onto another boss' face. He jerks his head back with specks of blood on his face, but just a split second later in a different shot his head is still and there is no blood at all.

Continuity mistake: When O-Ren chops off boss Tanaka's head, the head falls in front of Sophie and another member. Then, when O-Ren finishes her speech, she holds up Tanaka's head. This can not be possible, because she has not moved from where she was standing during the speech.

Continuity mistake: When we see the Bride in the "House of Blue Leaves", her hair is considerably longer than when it was while she was walking through the Tokyo airport. Since we see from time to time in the movie, the notations "one month later," or "4 years later," and there was nothing like that in the sequence, it seems that the Brides' hair grew at least 4 inches from the time she left the airport until the time she gets to the restaurant.

Continuity mistake: When "The Bride" is first in Okinawa and talking in the bar to the sword maker, look at his headband. The black and white stripes change from shot to shot, obviously showing how each time the material was twisted by the costumier before shooting.

Revealing mistake: When the Bride is fighting the General of the Crazy 88's he slashes at her lower torso and scores a hit, but the slash on the Bride's jacket is already there before he strikes (it is not there in the previous scenes and when he slashes it makes the sound of him cutting the material).

Continuity mistake: When Vernita and The Bride are talking in the kitchen and Vernita shoots The Bride from the cereal box, you can see the bullet hole in the back wall of the kitchen, but then a little later that part of the wall doesn't have any bullet holes. Also, not only is the bullet hole not where you see it hit in the first place, it's on the other side of the bride's head, along with the splatter from the cereal box.

Factual error: When we see the closeup of the gun when Bill shoots "The Bride" it is obvious that it is a normal gun with rifling in the barrel, we even see the end of the grooves when the bullet comes straight out of the gun at the camera, but the bullet does not spin.

Continuity mistake: When O-Ren falls dead in the snow, only the snow by her feet is pushed up. In the next overhead shot there are big footprints/marks in the snow near her legs, and her samurai sword has also moved.

Continuity mistake: When The Bride gets into the Pussy Wagon and tries to move her toes, the shot changes between one taken from her head and one taken from her feet. The one taken from her head shows her two feet touching one another and resting against the closed door. The one taken from her feet (which would have necessitated the door being open) shows her two feet not resting on anything and slightly apart from one another.

Continuity mistake: As The Bride writes her "Death List Five" on the plane, the handwriting of everything greatly changes between shots.

Continuity mistake: When Elle Driver carries the tray with the syringe on it, to The Bride's room, the syringe needle is exposed. But as Elle is preparing the injection, she removes a cap from the syringe.

Hamster

Continuity mistake: The table that Gogo falls on after hitting herself with the mace gets splintered into pieces, with debris underneath and all around where she lies on her back, especially in the area below her feet. Yet in the next shot when the Bride jumps down to resume her attack from above, there is no sign of the debris on the floor.

Continuity mistake: When The Bride is about to pick a sword from the rack she is about to pick a sword with a red shaft. Then Hanzo says tells her to pick another one from the same rack. When it cuts we can see that the sword with the red shaft is out of sight. Later we see that particular sword is on a low level of the shaft, but when we saw The Bride reaching for it it was obvious she wasn't bending down to get it. So the sword has moved lower on the shaft by itself.

Mortug

Other mistake: The Japanese phrase the chef says to The Bride when handing her the food is used after a meal, not before the meal.

Continuity mistake: During the fight in the restaurant, the Bride is surrounded by a large group of Yakuza. In a shot from behind her, she is staring at the opponents in front of her over the edge of her horizontally held blade. One of the masked villains is swinging a chain in an arc. A moment later the shot cuts to an overhead and the guy with the chain has disappeared - everyone in front of the bride (as well as to the rear and sides) are holding swords.

Continuity mistake: When Hatori Hanzo is talking to the bride, he calls for his assistant several times. At one point, he gets really mad and throws his knife unto the magnetic strips on the wall behind him and sticks on almost vertically. In the next few shots, the knife is positioned in different angles.

Continuity mistake: This error only occurs in the Japan version: Here, the little boy (the only one who doesn't wear a mask) "The Bride" fights before confronting the head general of the Crazy 88 had already fought against her in the middle of the battle with the rest of the gang. In that short fight she cut his mask off (explanation why he doesn't wear it at the end), realised he was only a child and then instead of killing him threw him into one of the pools. You actually see him falling into the water. But at the end when they meet again, he is completely dry (except for his sweat).

Continuity mistake: When O-Ren Ishii beheads Boss Tanaka, the bald boss sitting next to Tanaka alternates between holding a fan and not. After Tanaka's head is chopped off, there's a quick shot to bald boss to see his reaction, and he's holding a fan. When the shot goes back to him a second time, the fan is gone.

Continuity mistake: During the restaurant fight scene to get O-Ren, the blood on The Bride's face (particularly her nose) keeps changing. This may be an homage to older martial arts films, but at one point towards the end it is in the same spots as it was in the beginning as well.

Continuity mistake: Oren is in the back of a limo, with all six motorbikes ahead of her, after the final two have moved up from the back to the front, but when we see a shot of Oren, in the limo, there are four headlights behind the limo, the way it was before the bikes moved up.

Deliberate mistake: When the Crazy 88 crew is coming in to attack the bride they use one of the shots twice. It is the one that shows 1 guy jump over a banister and go to the left of the screen then another guy comes directly after him and heads directly towards the camera. It happens at 1:21:49 and 1:21:53.

Continuity mistake: When the bride is holding a table, GoGo throws the mace ball at it. She then pulls the mace ball back through it. The table splits in two. The piece of table that falls at the bottom of the screen, the bride's right hand side, falls completely apart. The legs have broken away from the table top. In the next shot this piece of table is standing on end with the legs reattached.

Continuity mistake: When O-ren chops of Boss Tanaka's head, the head is going in the direction of the boss to the left of Boss Tanaka. It is already on its way down and at eye level before the shot changes. The next shot we see the reaction of that boss and the other bosses but the head is no where in the shot. The head then reappears in the next shot and lands in front of him.

Continuity mistake: When Uma Thurman is standing in the kitchen talking to Nikki, the position of the strap of her knife holster rides up and down her thigh between shots.

Continuity mistake: In the Crazy 88 fight, when The Bride stabs a bald Crazy 88 member, at first the sword is to the left of his tie, but when we see a closeup, it's to the right of it.

raph

Continuity mistake: O-Ren shot the dart from where she was sitting in the private dining room at the restaurant. Since we see the dart travelling in a straight line past the kneeling Bride's face, the dart somehow manages to stop at eye level when Go-Go retrieves it.

Quotes

O-Ren Ishii: As your leader, I encourage you from time to time, but always in a respectful manner, to question my logic. If you're unconvinced a particular plan of action I've chosen is the wisest, tell me so. But allow me to convince you. And I promise you, right here and now, no subject will ever be taboo. Except the subject that was just under discussion. The price you pay for bringing up either my Chinese or American heritage as a negative is: I collect your fucking head. [Holds up Boss Tanaka's head.] Just like this fucker here. Now if any of you sons of bitches got anything else to say, NOW'S THE FUCKING TIME! [Silence.] I didn't think so.
