Inception mistake picture

Continuity mistake: When they escape from the building in the first dream, the right-hand mirror of the van is broken by the narrow gate. In the following shot when they are driving, the other mirror is broken and the right mirror is suddenly undamaged.

Continuity mistake: When Ariadne wakes in the Snow Fortress and the floor goes from under her, we can see her gloves fall in to the crack but in a different camera shot of her we can see the gloves are now back near her head again.

Deliberate mistake: During the mob scene outside Saito's love nest, the same black Saab is seen getting firebombed twice. It was shot from two different angles, with the two shots played about a minute apart to give the impression of two cars getting bombed. Also, in the first angle it is clear the car has no engine.

Revealing mistake: When Ariadne is pulling the two huge mirrors close together underneath the bridge with Cobb, watch her when she is closing the second mirror. She steps over something even though there is nothing present for her to step over. There must have been a green screen frame there for her to step over.

Continuity mistake: At the beginning of the movie, when Cobb and Arthur are on the top of the building about to get into a helicopter to leave, they find Saito in their helicopter. During the dialogue between Saito and Cobb, the window of the helicopter behind Saito is wet and being rained on. But when the camera cuts to Cobb outside the helicopter, it is not raining at all. This happens multiple times in the scene. As the helicopter flies away at the end of the scene, there is no rain.

Visible crew/equipment: During the zero-gravity fight scene in the hotel room, it is possible to see a crew member's hand briefly resting against the end of the bed when Arthur and the projection are fighting on it.

Continuity mistake: In the hotel scene when Ariadne and Arthur are sitting watching Mr Charles walk in to talk to Fischer, we can see she has earrings, but later when Ariadne asks "wait, whose subconscious are we going into?" we can briefly see she has no earrings.

Continuity mistake: As the van is in free-fall from the bridge to the water, Arthur's headphones disappear and then reappear between various shots.

Continuity mistake: When Cobb and Arthur are leaving their hotel room to get on a helicopter on the roof, we can see it's quite dark outside. But in the shot of them on the roof, it's much brighter.

Continuity mistake: When Arthur is fighting the projection in the hallway and begins to strangle him using the projections arm, we see his arm is covering his mouth.However in the next shot his arm is around his neck and his mouth is uncovered.

Continuity mistake: During the vehicle chase in the first dream, the taxi's driver's side windows are shot out. In the next shot, while it is backing up and hitting another car, the windows are intact. And in the next shot, the windows are broken again.

Visible crew/equipment: Right before Cobb and Arthur go to the roof to find Saito having Nash in the Helicopter, Cobb and Arthur are in the Hotel Room with windows in the background. In the reflection of the windows, you can easily see the camera and the microphone.

Continuity mistake: Third dream level, there are six henchmen being pulled by the Hummer snowmobile, and the back right gets shot off (or taken out). A scene a few minutes later, the missing henchman is back, then a few minutes later he is gone again.

Continuity mistake: When Ariadne is learning how to make/change terrain, she shifts gravity and makes buildings touch the top of other buildings. However, if you look in the windows of the black hatchback or any other car, you can see sky and clouds visible.

Continuity mistake: After the 1st-level shootout in the rainy streets, the two cars arrive at a warehouse. As they drive in, we see the wet tracks their tires left in previous takes of the same entry.

Deliberate mistake: The exact same filmed footage of sleeping Arthur is shown in two different scenes inside the van. This repeated slow-motion scene shows his left hand rising and two spherical droplets of water drift towards his right eye. It can be first seen when the van is being chased out of an alley and makes a right turn onto a street. Then it can be seen again soon after the motorcycle rider smashes into the windscreen. Watch for it when the van passes through open gates and makes a right turn.

Revealing mistake: When Arthur is gathering everything together in zero gravity for his improvised kick, there are several times when you can see the actors' harnesses. Most notably in the seat of Arthur's pants when he grabs the first charge and the backpack out of the air.

Phixius

Revealing mistake: When Arthur is fighting the two projections in the hotel hallway and the hallway tilts, Arthur grabs hold of and hangs on the right wall with the ceiling to his right. The following scene shows him running on the opposite wall with the ceiling to his left.

Revealing mistake: In the scene and shot were Arthur explains how to create the looping architecture. On the staircase reveal - as the camera comes to a rest at the end of the "crane down" the entire stair case wobbles at the end of the shot.

Continuity mistake: As Cobb is finishing describing how powerful a dream is, his right arm hangs down out of sight as his left thumb touches his forehead, then drops to rest on the table. A wine glass stands to his left. When the viewing angle reverses, his left arm is instantly hanging so that the hand is in his lap, and his right hand is bringing the wine glass to his mouth, yet the conversation is real-time continuous.

Continuity mistake: During the shifting gravity scene in the hotel room, Arthur rolls off the bed, catches the gun, and shoots the projection. As they slide towards the door, Arthur is curled up and facing away from the projection. But in the next shot, when we see them close up, Arthur is facing toward the projection and is no longer curled up.

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Ariadne finds out that the only way Cobb can dream is by being hooked up to the machine. When she first walks in and sees him sleeping on the chair she has a purse over her left arm. But in the next shot, she has no purse on either shoulder and there's no shot showing her putting the purse down.

Continuity mistake: As they are sitting around, planning the next job, Cobb is wearing a blue shirt, of which he rolls up the right sleeve repeatedly.

Continuity mistake: When Arthur is shot in the head, at first there's no bullet hole in his head, but in the next shot there is.

Continuity mistake: In the scene on the airplane when they are setting up to go under, Yusuf takes a sip from a wine glass and goes to set it down. Then in the shot immediately following he no longer has a wine glass in his hand. Instead he is buckling his seat belt.

Revealing mistake: When the track-Humvee gets blown up, there is a full second delay between the explosion and the Humvee getting flipped.

Continuity mistake: In the second scene, when Cobb is taken to Saito (Old Man), Cobb's totem is kept on the table with the longer end down. But as the PoV changes to Saito's, the totem keeps changing position with the shorter end down. This happens at least four times.

Abheney

Factual error: When Cobb arrives at Los Angeles International Airport and is going through immigration, the officer stamps his passport with a black stamp. All passport stamps in the United States are universally the same with a blue oval and pink letters marking the date in the center. Plus the fact that US citizens don't get their passports stamped when they return to the country.

Character mistake: In the final scene Cobb's children class him "daddy!" but Cobb's son also calls him "Leo!"

Revealing mistake: When the chase in Mombasa has just begun, the camera is moving in front of Cobb at one point. Notice how the people behind the camera are moving into Cobb's paths, despite the fact that they weren't there a second ago?
