Snake Eyes picture

Revealing mistake: After the sniper is shot he falls through the wall. Look at his silencer when he hits the ground - it bends where it attaches to the muzzle. A real metal silencer wouldn't do that. (00:41:25)

The Highwaymen picture

Revealing mistake: When Hamer goes to the gun store and obtains all of his weaponry, the gun counter guy and boy carry the weapons out to his vehicle. The weight of the weapons would be too much for one to carry all at the same time and the boy is supposedly carrying that large box of ammo, which would have contained over a thousand rounds, but he's carrying it like a box of feathers.

Jigsaw picture

Revealing mistake: During the opening trap, at one point one of the five "Bucket Heads" starts banging on the wall behind them. If you look very closely, you can see the set-wall waver slightly as it's struck, revealing it's not really a concrete wall. (And it's not supposed to be the doorway that is later revealed during the final twist. It's a separate section of wall). (00:05:40)

Suggested correction: No it's not the section that is a door, but that door does prove vital here. By showing the door, shows there is a section behind the wall. Meaning the wall we see is most likely a completely false wall and not the structural wall. With it being a false wall it is entire pleasurable that it could move.

When Jigsaw opens the door, you can see the walls are indeed solid and are at least 6-8 inches thick. Given the fact they appear to be made of concrete and run floor-to-ceiling, sorry... there's no way they are moving when someone bangs on them. Also, why would Jigsaw make a "false wall" that was so easy to move when someone hit it? He'd be setting himself up to possibly be caught. Sorry, but this particular correction is just too far-fetched. It's just a mistake.

Inside Man picture

Revealing mistake: During the final conversation between Detective Frazier and Arthur Case, Frazier holds up his hand with the ring on his middle finger. It is pretty obvious that the hand was inserted into the scene in post production; the hand doesn't move in a natural way and simply looks out of place.

Suggested correction: Really? I don't see anything unnatural in the hand's movement at all. Doesn't look at all obvious to me that it was inserted in post-production. After all, Frazier refers to "this ring." They will want it in shot so I'm sure they made sure Washington held it in shot.

Yes, really. Look again. Look at how it moves down and vanishes out of the frame. No human hand moves like that! They didn't have Washington hold it up for the shot and it was inserted later as a pickup shot. See this IMDB goof entry for more details: "During the final conversation between Detective Frazier and Arthur Case..." "a picture of a hand with a ring on the middle finger was inserted into the scene - first moving up into the shot, and then moving down off screen."

Batman and Robin picture

Revealing mistake: When Mr. Freeze knocks out the two guards after being released from the fridge, one of the guards falls against the fridge causing it to wobble. A big heavy fridge like that should not wobble. (00:55:30)
