Twelve Monkeys picture

Continuity mistake: In the final scene in which a man is shot in the airport (part of this scene actually recurs throughout the movie), the psychiatrist woman leans over him to hold him as he dies. From one angle, he reaches up to her face and his hand is clean. In the next angle, his hand is covered in blood as he touches her face.

Under Siege 2 picture

Factual error: When the porter first gets ready to shoot at the terrorists (after Ryback falls off the train) he goes through a series of verbal instructions to remind himself what to do. The very first thing he says is "safety off". The problem is that the gun he is using is a Glock pistol. Glocks use a device called a "safe-action trigger" but they don't have a manual safety that you turn on and off.

The Last Supper picture

Plot hole: The group poison a dozen or so people and dispose of their bodies by burying them in their own garden. Some of their victims are notable celebrities - television presenters, authors, leaders of large and vocal pressure groups. Certainly some of them are nobodies, but nonetheless they are going to tell friends where they are going for dinner! Not one of these people told their assistants or their secretaries or a friend or a relative - a spouse? - where they were going and what they were doing on the night they were murdered? Not one of them? Not one single trace was left for the police to follow? Absolutely impossible.

Strange Days picture

Continuity mistake: This is the car chase scene, where Ralph Fiennes and Angela Bassett are in a limo being chased by two bad cops in a pickup. Early in the scene, you have the view from inside the pickup when it rams the limo from the rear passenger side, and you can clearly see bullet holes in the glass and rear of the limo (no weapons fired yet). Then a few seconds later in the scene, you can see the rear of the limo with no damage. Moments later, you see one of the cops firing an automatic weapon, and subsequently witnessing the holes being made in the limo.

Johnny Mnemonic picture

Continuity mistake: When J-Bone is coming down from Heaven, the lift he's on stops quite a way off the ground, and moves when he steps off it. Yet when he, Johnny and Jade step onto the lift, it seems to be on the ground as it doesn't move. It couldn't have been lowered, as we would've heard the noise of the motors.
