Assault on Precinct 13 picture

Revealing mistake: About a minute into the movie we see Ethan Hawke waking up. He has a tattoo on his left pectoral. He then goes to the sink and mirror and the camera is directly behind him. He drops out of shot and in the same shot reappears in "the reflection" as he splashes his face with water. His tattoo is still on his left pectoral - all he's done is drop out of shot, move forward a few paces, turns around towards the camera and reappear as the mirror reflection. They've forgotten to either flip the image around or put the tattoo on the other side. (00:06:00)

Saw II picture

Revealing mistake: When the group finds the picture of Daniel and his father Eric in the house, look closely at the photo - it was obviously very poorly patched together with photoshop. The lighting on Daniel/Eric does not match the lighting in the background at all, and it's clear that they have been crudely "cut out" of another photo and inserted over the background image. The extremely poor, obviously fake quality of the photo is even jokingly mentioned in at least one of the DVD commentaries.

Four Brothers picture
