Best adventure movie mistakes of 2010
Continuity mistake: Rumplestiltskin looks completely different in this movie than he did in the previous film Shrek The Third; Prince Charming momentarily talks to Rumplestiltskin in the tavern during the third film, and the character looks completely different, has a different voice and different demeanor.
Continuity mistake: During Andy's daydream at the beginning of the film, Mr. Potato Head has an eye patch over his left eye. When the daydream cuts back to reality we see that Andy has removed Mr. Potato Head's left eye to symbolize the eye patch. But when Andy's mum comes in with the video camera, his left eye is suddenly back in.

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.
Plot hole: When Astrid gets on Toothless for the first time, Toothless takes off uncontrollably and tries to scare her. Hiccup seems to have no control over him at this time. How is that so if with the new tail fin, Toothless cannot fly without Hiccup's precise control of the tail fin? That whole sequence would have fallen apart. This mistake was even admitted to on the DVD Commentary.
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: 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.
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.
Factual error: The construction of Hadrian's Wall as shown at the end of the film is not historically accurate. A wooden wall was constructed first with a deep ditch on either side. One of the ditches should be visible as the characters approach the wall but it is not. The stone wall shown being constructed was not added until later and then it was constructed in sections. It did not become a continuous stone wall until some years later. In addition, the stone wall shown is not wide enough. Hadrian's Wall is around 2 meters wide at the top and even today you can comfortably walk on top of it.
Continuity mistake: During the last fight with Darkseid, there's changes to what the farm looks like. At one point, instead of the windmill there's a building, which we never saw when Clark drove past the spot. And the overturned truck is missing in a several of scenes even though it should be visible.
Factual error: When they are watching the prince's wedding on TV, you can see the TV-channel's logo in the corner of the screen. The channel NRK didn't start using this logo until 1996, so the program is definitely a rerun, and not the original airing from 1968 which is when this film is set.
Continuity mistake: In the final battle scene after the Band reaches the canyons and are on a cliff overlooking the Guardians, you can obviously see that Twilight doesn't have his lute. After focusing on Soren struggling to remove the pot of tar, we see Twilight flying with Digger and Gylfie, but with his lute. Impossible to be so fast.
