Best fantasy movie mistakes of 1997
Revealing mistake: When the Cyborg Master enters the police station, he shoots two police women before a third cop starts shooting back with a shotgun. The third shot he fires hits the wall behind the cyborg, and the entire wall wobbles as the squib goes off to make the hole in the wall.
Continuity mistake: When Wynn is talking to Al about the mission to blow up the plant, Wynn puts his cigarette out in the ash tray in the scorpion bowl and there are 4 butts in the ash tray, but a minute later when the camera shows the 2 scorpions fighting, the ash tray has no cigarette butts in it.
Continuity mistake: When the bad guys with the high tech weapons shoot down the helicopter, there is a cop standing directly under the helicopter as it is coming down. The guy who plays the cop is clearly an older looking man with no hair on the top and graying hairs on the side. As Shaq (Steel) goes to tackle him to get him out the way, the stuntman for the cop is clearly recognizable, because the stuntman has a full head of black hair and a part on the left side.
Plot hole: Katherine (Kirstie Alley) the tooth fairy is instructed by Rodgers (Lynn Redgrave) that she can only go out at night, otherwise she stays in an apartment in Limbo to get her assignments. She is given names all over the world. There is always a part of the world that is in nighttime. She should always be working and never at Limbo.
Continuity mistake: After the explosion in the laboratory, Josh is laying on the floor, injured. His face is covered in blood, however during the scene the amount of blood on his face keeps changing. In close ups of his face his lips are free of blood, but in wider shots his lips are covered in thick amounts of blood.
Continuity mistake: In 4th black's move, king's bishop go to third row (A3) and capture the white knight. There is not elipsis yet, but. in 6th black's move, Geri's imaginary opponent takes a piece from A4 to B3 and capture a white pawn. but there wasn't any piece previously on A4, in fact, pawn was not moved before, staying on B2, its original place. In the next shot black bishop remains on A3 and white pawn on B2, as nothing was happened.
Continuity mistake: As Prince Valiant observes the Black Knight's meeting with the vikings on the beach, the knight's visor changes position from shot to shot. When shown from behind, his visor is up, which would reveal his face. But when the knight is shown from the front, his visor is down to conceal his identity.
Continuity mistake: In the scene where Tia Carerra is reborn. Her deformed servant is chanting a spell and places a flaming dagger in her mummified mouth. She awakens and bursts into flames, just then she touches his badly deformed right hand and it heals. Over the next few camera shots his hand goes back and forth from normal to deformed.
Plot hole: In the waning seconds of the championship game, the Huskies are down by 2 and UMass has the ball. Not only do the Huskies not intentionally foul to stop the clock, but UMass attempts to run a play and set up a basket when they simply could have dribbled out the clock and won the game. Both these strategies go against what any basketball team would do in this situation, especially in a championship game.
