Max Payne picture

Other mistake: In the final gunshot sequence on the rooftop, Max Payne raises the gun up to reveal a slo-mo sequence. The handgun is coated in ice/snow. How long was he holding the gun in the air in the snowy weather?

The Hitcher picture

Other mistake: The Hitcher reverses his pick-up truck out of the gas station after he drops the lighted match. His wheels, wheel arches and perhaps the underside of the truck would have been soaked in petrol as he drove over the gushing pumps. So as he was burning rubber during this manoeuvre - this would have ignited the petrol on his truck.

Other mistake: When the driver of the ZR1 corvette changes gears the emergency brake lever is visibly up. (00:53:00 - 00:53:55)

Ronin picture

Other mistake: When the arms deal goes wrong by the river in Paris, Larry drives the Audi flat out straight into the tunnel where the bad guys BMW is parked right in the middle, leaving little space to get another car through. Even if he could squeeze the Audi past the other car, there were dead bodies either side that he would have to drive over, as well as crashing into the doors that were left open. This would have done some damage to the Audi at the speed he was going.

National Security picture National Security mistake picture

Other mistake: When Earl and Hank are in the police car, there is one shot where you are looking from Earl's POV. In this POV the rear view mirrow is just a black outline, not a mirror. (00:54:30)

Presumed Innocent picture

Other mistake: When Harrison Ford returns to the crime scene to search for "evidence" we see blood stains on the carpet, which has been on the carpet for days. The blood is bright red and shows no signs of coagulation, but blood turns dark red when it coagulates after only a few hours.

The Life of David Gale picture

Other mistake: Toward the end of the movie when Bitsy is racing to get to the prison before the execution, she has car trouble. She tries the key again before giving up, grabbing the video tape and running down the road. This same "car trouble and desperate race" scene is shown at the opening of the movie, but Bitsy exits the car immediately after it stops. There is no delay to allow for her to try the key again or grab the video tape.

Taxi picture

Other mistake: When the taxi and the BMW are driving down the alley, the robbers are trying to escape, the cop is running after them on foot, they reach the end of the alley the BMW takes off but the taxi stops for the cop and he shows up shortly after. There is no way he could've caught up to them that fast. Not unless he can run at 30mph.

The Brave One picture

Other mistake: In the end credits, the character played by Tina Sloan is listed as "Stationary Saleswoman". The correct spelling of this character should be "Stationery Saleswoman", as she sells stationery. She doesn't sell while standing in one spot.

Double Jeopardy picture

Other mistake: On two occasions in the movie, Ashley Judd slams a car into another (she drives Tommy Lee Jones' car into another and over the side of the ferry boat, and later she smashes a stolen pickup truck into the side of a car). In each case, the car she is driving emerges from the crash without a scratch on it, not even a damaged headlight.

Get Shorty picture

Other mistake: When the guy is on the balcony, and gets shot over the rail, you can clearly see the top rail bend to let him flip over and fall. Then when he lands you can see what looks like the corner of a mat lift up and kick dirt up. The next shot shows the bad guys leaning on the very rail that just bent.

Honest picture

Other mistake: The girls paint their van with brushes before heading off. When the van is being driven later in the film as they make their getaway, it's obviously been airbrushed, as it's too smooth a paint job.

Green Street Hooligans picture

Other mistake: In the fight after Matt gets ambushed, as the gangs collide, Matt gets knocked down, yet in the next shot he gets knocked down again. How would he be able to get back up fast enough to get knocked down again straight away?

Biker Boyz picture

Other mistake: In the scene where the first girl is getting a tattoo on her rear end, the tattooist, Tina, is holding the ink gun at an extreme angle, when in reality, the ink gun is held straight up and down because the ink is gravity fed. She is also bending over while receiving the tattoo, when in reality, she would be laying on a tattoo chair for stability.

Wolf Creek picture

Other mistake: When Ben lies wounded in the open, we are treated to a solar eclipse followed by a full moon. These events must be 2 weeks apart. Long enough for Ben to have grown a beard (which doesn't happen), but too long for him to survive without water.

In the Cut picture

Other mistake: In several scenes the Detective is wearing his shield attached to his belt. NYC Detectives do not do this, if displayed it is pinned to their outermost garment.
