Best action movie mistakes of 2010
Continuity mistake: Right after Bennett takes off in the plane, Claire throws a gun to Alice. Between the slow-motion shots, the gun switches position in mid-air before Alice catches it. In the shot of Claire throwing it, the barrel is facing to the right, meaning that it should be facing to the left in the shot of Alice catching it. But it still faces the right when she does.
Continuity mistake: After being chased by soldiers after talking to his uncle, Dastan gets into a swordfight with Garsiv. As soon as it starts, Garsiv hits a pillar with his weapon knocking a significantly large chunk and a another smaller chunk out of it. In the immediate shot, the size and locations of the two chunks differ.
Continuity mistake: Gamble and Hoitz get thrown to the ground when the accounting office explodes. In an overhead shot of them rolling around on the ground, Gamble's wooden gun has fallen from its holster and is lying on the ground. Cut to a side shot and the gun is back in its holster. Gamble had both hands covering his ears the whole time, he did not pick up the gun. Then comes another overhead shot, the wooden gun is again missing from the holster.
Other mistake: During the heist of the armoured car, The Losers detonate the explosive device on one of the black SUV's and it then blows up and rises up vertically. The problem with this is the explosive device was attached to the side of the SUV, and it really should have blown it sideways and up, not just vertical.
Continuity mistake: Whenever Megamind or Minion uses the disguise generator, their normal eye colour always show through their disguises, such as when they both disguise themselves as the Warden (the Warden has blue/gray eyes while Megamind has green and Minion has brown). However, during the final battle, Minion disguises himself as Megamind but he has Megamind's green eyes instead of his normal brown eyes.
Continuity mistake: During the fight at the End of the Line Bar, Gem walks and stand next to Castor. Later she move to the left and sits on a couch for the rest of the fight.However, at the very beginning, right after Quorra jumps and protect Sam, there's a brief cut where we can already see her sitting there, too early.
Factual error: In the very first shot of the movie, a clock is shown ticking. The time on the clock reads 05:59:56. It is obviously AM because a few seconds later at 06:00:00, Frank wakes up as if it was morning. As Frank sits up, clear daylight is visible outside of the window. This scene is supposed to be set during winter. We know this because there are many Christmas decorations. Since this is meant to be winter, it should still be dark at that time of day.
Continuity mistake: In the scene when Balthazar and Dave are in Chinatown looking for the Grimhold, Balthazar enters a building to talk to its current owner and encounters Horvath. As Horvath is telling Balthazar that he has released the Chinese sorcerer Sun-lok from the Grimhold, we see him standing behind Balthazar, preparing to attack him with hundreds of accupuncture needles. We see all of the needles float up and out of a doll-like figure on a table as well as some other places. Immediately after the attack, Balthazar runs across the room to the window and the doll is visible with all of the needles back in place.
