The Mexican picture

Other mistake: When Brad Pitt puts David Krumholtz in the car after Krumholtz is hit in the head by a falling bullet, if you look closely you can see him breathing despite the fact that at that point he's already dead.

Reservoir Dogs picture

Other mistake: During the post-robbery flashback where Mr. White has just killed two police officers, there is a shot of Mr. White saying, "Let's go." after determining that Mr. Brown is dead. As Mr. White & Mr. Orange leave the scene, you can see 3, maybe 4 men standing perhaps 20 feet away, lounging in front of a dark blue truck. For all the car-crashing & gunshots easily within earshot, those witnesses seem awfully nonchalant. (01:25:40)

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 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.

Shooter picture

Other mistake: In the beginning of the film where the truck with the machine gunner and the driver is shot, the truck goes out of the road and falls over, but there is no machine gunner falling of the cargo area nor is there any driver falling out from the truck.

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?

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 pictureNational 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)

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.

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.

Get Carter picture

Other mistake: At the end just as Carter is about to be shot, he is facing the sea as he goes to throw his gun away. At this point the gunman fires and hits Carter square in the forehead. The position of the gunman is shown as being behind Carter and to his right (this is seen when the gunman lines up to take aim). Even though Carter leans back as he throws his gun away, he would have been hit somewhere on the right side of his head or temple at best.

The Caveman's Valentine picture

Other mistake: When Romulus talks to Matthew about Leppenraub he says that he knows "the man he works for". The German subtitles translate into "the man who works for him". (00:16:50)

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.
