Mission: Impossible 3

Factual error: When Tom Cruise is going to defibrillate Keri Russell to disarm the bomb in her head, no defibrillator takes 30 seconds to charge to 150 joules. Most go to 360 joules and if they are not charged in 10 seconds the batteries are depleted enough that they won't charge at all.

Deliberate mistake: Bare shoulders are forbidden in the Vatican premises, so the sexy dresses in the party would not be allowed.

Continuity mistake: When Ethan is running through the Shanghai streets, he passes a man holding a vase. In the immediately following wide angle the man has vanished.

Sacha

Visible crew/equipment: There is a camera operator visible in the reflection of Ethan's sunglasses in the funeral scene.

Continuity mistake: In the scene in Berlin, the female member of the IMF team starts with no special glasses/goggles, then has them up on her head, then, just before the shooting begins, she puts them over her eyes, but later, while the shooting is still going on, they are back up on top of her head. Then they completely disappear.

Revealing mistake: In the helicopter chase Ethan and Linsey (and the defibrillator) are just sitting on the floor of the helicopter while it is doing very radical moves. They would have been thrown around.

Jacob La Cour

Continuity mistake: When the sewer lid is removed, it is pushed to the right (compared to the location of the car) but when it is pulled back, it lies behind the hole (again compared to the location of the car).

Continuity mistake: During the bridge scene, soldiers approach the armoured vehicle to spray it with orange gel. As they approach, the vehicle has a triangular reflector on the rear side. In the shot five seconds later showing the orange gel being sprayed, the rear reflector is circular.

Continuity mistake: Towards the end of the film, after Tom has been electrocuted to destroy the bomb implanted into his skull, we see the female lead trying to restart his heart, each time they show his eyes, they are closed or open in different shots, and if they are closed, you can see his eyeball moving underneath the eyelid.

Continuity mistake: When Ethan and the team are being attacked on the bridge, Ethan's back left jean pocket is ripped. However, when Ethan is recovering from almost falling off of the bridge, his pocket is intact.

Trivia

The scene in which Julia brings Ethan back to life is copied almost identically from the scene in "Lost" (Director JJ Abrams' hit TV show) where Charlie is brought back to life. Incidentally, you can hear the "Lost" music played throughout the show, most noticeable when Davian is about to pick up the gun to kill Julia.
