Spider-Man 3 mistake picture

Factual error: During the fight scene with Sandman in the armor car, the Terminal Tower can be seen in the background, which is a landmark in Cleveland, Ohio (where the scene was shot), not in New York city.

Ghost Rider picture

Revealing mistake: In the day following the Rider's first ride, Cage shows up at the street that has been burned down the center. A person very close to the beginning of that scene walks on the broken up rocks and it moves as if it were a pad or a sponge. It wasn't a rock moving because the street moves with the rock. It happens a couple of times during that scene.

Transformers picture

Deliberate mistake: When Frenzy attacks Sam, the teenager wears straight leg jeans with a narrow leg opening (not boot cut) and thick-soled Nikes, seen in numerous shots, as he kicks at the Decepticon. After the cut to Mikaela (who finds the reciprocating saw), during which Frenzy has already pulled off the bottom of Sam's jeans, Sam continues to kick and scream just before he gets up and runs. Problem is Sam still wears both thick-soled Nikes, neither of which slipped off as Frenzy maniacally pulled the jeans, with narrow leg openings, from his kicking legs/feet. Impossible even in the best of circumstances.

Continuity mistake: The birth of the Predalien in this movie is completely different than it was in the first AVP. The lights on the table are different and the Predalien bursts out differently than in the first film.

Flight of Fury picture

Plot hole: The admiral receives the news of the stolen aircraft from the general over an open radio, with umpteen enlisted personnel within earshot. However, when the air group commander asks what the OP is about, the admiral tells him that it is on a need-to-know basis.

Underdog picture

Revealing mistake: Underdog's first costume is supposed to be a felted down (the more accurate term would be fulled) wool sweater. When wool is felted the stitches lose clear definition and usually achieve a "felted" look. It is clear that the sweater in the movie has just been switched for another smaller sweater as the stitches are still sharply defined after it has been pulled from the dryer. This is especially clear around the U. No attempt to make the smaller sweater look "felted" was made. This refers to the original costume with the solid white U, not the second costume with the yellow outlined U.

Hot Fuzz picture

Continuity mistake: Nick's character is eating an ice cream in the police car and eats the whole thing. When the shot changes to Simon's side, he's still got about half of it left.

National Treasure: Book of Secrets picture

Continuity mistake: At the end of National Treasure 1, Riley has a Ferrari 360 Spider. At the beginning of Book of Secrets, when his car is being towed away, it's a Ferrari F430 Spider. At the end of the movie, he is given back a 360 Spider.

Live Free or Die Hard picture

Audio problem: Just as McClane and Farrell are about to leave the Eastern Power Hub, Farrell goes on a long rant and his mouth does not match the words he is saying. [In the unrated version of the film, the rant concurs with Will's mouth movements, but the mistake is valid for the regular version.]

Joel Amos Gordon
The Bourne Ultimatum picture

Continuity mistake: When Bourne is talking to Firsch, the gun he is holding changes from a Glock in the shots facing Bourne, to a SigPro when the shots face Firsch.

American Gangster picture

Continuity mistake: In the opening scene, just after the man is set afire he falls to the ground. Frank shoots him and while firing his weapon jams. A casing is stuck in the ejection port (called a stovepipe when it happens). After the round sticks he continues to pull the trigger and the weapon continues to fire.

Resident Evil: Extinction picture

Plot hole: When L.J. Is bitten he manages to suppress becoming a zombie for 1-2 days. When Carlos is bitten by L.J. he is infected so quickly and talks about it "being too late for him" (whereas in the previous film he had 3 hours before getting the antidote). Why is this different now and why is Carlos not still carrying the antidote in him?

Upvote valid corrections to help move entries into the corrections section.

Suggested correction: The t-virus was modified by her blood, as explained in the latter part of the movie. Therefore his blood would have no natural immunity, and this would explain why it infected at an accelerated rate.

Wrong Turn 2: Dead End picture

Continuity mistake: Towards the end when Nina is tied up around the wrist with razor wire and Dale shows up to rescue her by putting his knife in the wire to free her, suddenly the wire has changed and is extremely loose. Before it was bigger and tightly tied around her wrists.

The Contractor picture

Factual error: Firearm issues abound throughout the film. The British detectives (who all seem to be armed, rather than a low proportion of AFO (Authorised Firearms Officers) as in real life) are shown carrying Beretta pistols, even though the Metropolitan Police issue the Glock 17. The SFO (Specialist Firearms Operations) officers are shown carrying MP5 submachineguns, which is accurate, but fitted with cheap toy-shop lasers. Weapons handling is poor throughout, with chickenwing syndrome particularly prevalent. Weapons carriage also appears geared to look "cool" rather than realistic; shoulder holsters - which practically everyone wears in this film - are rarely used for concealed carry in reality.

The Dukes of Hazzard: The Beginning picture

Other mistake: In the sequence where Bo is taking his driving test, the driving instructor is shown fumbling to put on his seatbelt three times, all of which are from the same piece of film.

Hitman (2007)

Hitman picture

Continuity mistake: During the Sword fight scene, 47 pulls a katana out of a dead agent's hand, in order to use it. It is covered and dripping with blood. However when he comes to use it a few seconds later, it is clean as can be.

Michael Clayton picture
Michael Clayton mistake picture

Continuity mistake: During the complete car-bomb chase sequence towards the end of the film, Michael Clayton's car is shown in one shot without its lights on. All the surrounding shots in the scene have both cars with their lights on. This is also a slightly revealing error because it shows that they actually filmed these sequences during the day using neutral density filters.

Shoot 'Em Up picture

Factual error: In the final standoff, Smith shoots Hertz by holding cartridges between his fingers in the fire. This is not remotely believable. The casings, weighing much less than the bullets, would have been blasted off while the bullets themselves would have gone nowhere.

TMNT (2007)

TMNT picture

Continuity mistake: During the fight between Raph and Leo, Raph breaks Leo's swords. Later when Raph gives the broken swords to Splinter they are broken much closer to the hilt then before.

Death Proof picture

Visible crew/equipment: When stuntman Mike and the girls cars come back together after being separated by a pond, the shadow of a car-mounted camera crane is visible in the left bottom corner.

BloodRayne 2: Deliverance picture

Continuity mistake: At the beginning, in the scene where Rayne finds two bodies near a small house, she takes out one of her blades. Firstly, she grabs it in a wrong way (the tonfa-like blades should be held under the arm), but when the camera angle changes she holds it properly.

Rush Hour 3 picture

Visible crew/equipment: When George drops Lee, Carter and Genevieve off outside the embassy to meet Reynard, right before George tells them he won't be there when they get back, as the camera moves around the car a reflector screen and a crew member can be seen reflected in the side window of the car.

Shooter picture

Continuity mistake: Mark Wahlberg cuts through the back seat to get access to medical supplies in the boot - other stuff is visible in there too. But shortly afterwards when he reverses it into the water, the boot pops open and it's now completely empty.

Wild Hogs picture

Continuity mistake: When the Wild Hogs first go to the Delfuego Bar, it is a bright sunny day and the ground is completely dry. When Woody had to go back and recover Dudley's bike the ground is completely wet, but when Woody is riding Dudley's bike back to the other Wild Hogs, the ground is again dry.

3:10 to Yuma picture

Continuity mistake: After Evans was shot near the end of the movie, Ben Wade jumped out of the train to look at him. If you look over Wade's shoulder, you will see that Nez (the Apache) had already arrived at his spot, and Campos (the Mexican sharpshooter) threw Wade's gun belt to Charlie Prince. After the movie cut a couple of times, Nez was shown walking up, throwing Wade's gun belt to Campos, who then threw it to Charlie Prince.

Grindhouse picture

Continuity mistake: Mike avoids colliding head-on with a pickup by swerving off the road into a farm field. He does this after passing a tractor and flatbed truck to his right. The shot changes and he is turning off the road into the field between the tractor and truck.

Revealing mistake: When Conrad throws the Russian over the cliff, as the Russian explodes, you can see that poor CGI actually makes him transparent.

Balls of Fury picture

Factual error: Karl Wolfschtagg's Olympic uniform should have read 'DDR' (Deutsche Demokratische Republik, the German name) rather than 'GDR', the English name for East Germany. Olympic country names are customarily rendered in their native language.
