Looper (2012)

15 mistakes

Directed by: Rian Johnson

Starring: Bruce Willis, Emily Blunt, Joseph Gordon-Levitt

Genres: Action, Sci-fi

Continuity mistake: When Joe and Cid are sitting at the table working on the signal frogs, Cid's front tooth is missing. In every scene Cid is in after that, his tooth is not missing.


Continuity mistake: When old Joe is in the night club killing everybody, his face is covered in blood, but spotless when seen through the CCTV.


Continuity mistake: When Joseph Gordon-Levitt's character is shot by Emily Blunt with rock salt he is hit in the right shoulder. In the next scene he is having his left shoulder treated.

Continuity mistake: When Sara points her gun at the field and cries "don't give me no hobo story", her hair around the right side of her face and neck changes positions between shots.


Continuity mistake: When Kid Blue is riding on his bike trying to kill Joe laying on the floor, Joe's position is inconsistent between shots.


Visible crew/equipment: When Joe drives his red car and stops by his friend's bike, a huge white lighting screen is reflected on the car's hood.


Continuity mistake: When Cid is comforted by Joe and his mom arrives. Cid is either facing her or the opposite side, depending on the shot.


Continuity mistake: When the waitress delivers the identical breakfast plates to the two Joes, she places them in exactly the same way with respect to the men - eggs toward them, steak facing away. In the longer shot, old Joe's is different, although neither has touched the plate.

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Old Joe (Bruce Willis) is forced to the time machine and then fights back, the amount of Gat Men changes. 2 are seen bringing him in, another collecting the gold and the brown jacket, and a fourth opening the time machine. However, when he fights back there are only 3 bodies. It is plausible but unlikely that the fourth man would have left and gotten far enough away not to hear the fight.

Revealing mistake: Considerable efforts were made for this film to have Joseph Gordon-Levitt resemble Bruce Willis (colored contacts, nose prosthetics) since they are playing the same character at different ages. Yet the two actors' ears remain distinctly different. Bruce Willis's ears are much larger than Joseph Gordon-Levitt's, and Joseph Gordon-Levitt has connected ear lobes while Bruce Willis does not.

Serious B

Continuity mistake: In the diner shootout scene, Joseph Gordon shoots at Bruce Willis, missing and smashing the window that's right next to the blue lighted sign on the wall. After more loopers arrive to kill Bruce Willis, the window is intact once more and Bruce shoots it out again so he can jump out of it.

Continuity mistake: When old Seth is running away and sees his tattoo, the length of the sleeve rolled down changes between shots.


Continuity mistake: When Joe is hiding from the Gat behind the couch, his gun swaps from facing a 3 o'clock direction to a 1 o'clock between shots.


Continuity mistake: When Cid is in the field, his face is sometimes covered in blood, or with a clean trail on the right cheek. This changes randomly.


Continuity mistake: While hiding from the Gat man in the tunnel made by Cid's grandfather. The stick used to hold open the trap door switches from the knot being at the side, to the knot being at the front.
