Saw 3D picture

Salt (2010)

Salt picture

Factual error: The 20 € banknote shown is multicoloured, but the real one is plain blue. (00:40:40)

Machete picture

Continuity mistake: When Machete is picked up by Booth in the S-class, the car changes from an S500 to an older generation S-class, and then switches back for the rest of the film. The footage was from the trailer being edited in.

The Town picture

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Doug and his brother are talking outside the cemetery, the zipper on Doug's jacket goes from being almost completely zipped to about halfway zipped without him touching it.

From Paris with Love picture

Continuity mistake: In the getaway scene where Charlie Wax (John Travolta) reverses into a line of cars to destroy James Reese's SUV, when the SUV explodes the wheels on the SUV change to a stock rim, when it had large custom rims when he parked it.

Takers picture

Visible crew/equipment: If you look closely, after the shootings with the Russians and the guys go in to the second room, next to Chris Brown you can visibly see the camera man (shorts and the camera).

Red (2010)

Red picture

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. (00:00:40)

Casual Person
The American picture

Factual error: Clooney refers to the rifle as an "M14". The Rüger Mini-14 is a different rifle than the M14 (used e.g. by the Marine Corps prior to the M16).

Smokin' Aces 2: Assassins' Ball picture

Other mistake: Finbar is shown torturing a victim while the victim has his head in a halo used for immobilizing a person's head. The screws to hold the victim's head tight can be seen not to be touching his head, yet the victim is still bleeding from the screws.

Vampires Suck picture

Continuity mistake: When Derek closes up his back pack, you can see that it falls open again. When both Derek and Becca walk into the food hall, the backpack is now closed.

GalahadFairlight
The Next Three Days picture

Factual error: In the scene when they are leaving the Pittsburgh Zoo, the sign indicates to turn right for Interstate 79. However Intestate 79 is about 15 miles to the west of the zoo. Also, it is suggested that Interstate 79 is the turnpike (a tolled road), when actually Interstate 76 is the turnpike and Interstate 79 is not tolled.

Revealing mistake: Throughout the phonecall between Killer and Lucy, the call duration on the iPhone stays the same at 00:03. (00:37:00)

Carlos (2010)

Carlos picture

Factual error: The attack on the OPEC meeting in Vienna takes place on December 21. Yet, when Carlos' team exits the tram, the trees are full with green summer leaves and the sun shines as it would on a high summer day.

Wild Things: Foursome picture

Continuity mistake: First when Carson kisses Rachel she's on his left side. When the kiss is over she's suddenly on his right side. (00:52:00)

The Killer Inside Me picture

Factual error: In the chase scene where Lou is running after the derelict, they pass a number of vehicles parked and driving on the streets. All of them are correct period vehicles for the late 1950s, except for a white semi truck which is from at least the mid 1990s. The grille and headlights on the truck are the giveaway. (01:23:20)

Undisputed III: Redemption picture

Continuity mistake: Towards the end of the movie, after Boyka gets out of the car with the briefcase, Turbo gets out after him and has a conversation. When Turbo goes back to the car, you see Boyka standing on the side of the road. There is only that one road in all the shots. In the next close up shot of the car door closing, and the car moving, we see the car getting out on to the road from a small by-lane (of sorts)! Where did this road come from? How did the car move places?

NeSaxena
Freeway Killer picture

Factual error: Bill is awakened by a clock radio. The AM frequency shows it goes up to 1700kHz. The AM expanded band was not introduced until 1993. In 1980, devices only received AM frequencies up to 1600kHz. The SONY clock radio in the scene was not from 1980. Plus, the alarm sound it made wasn't popular until the late '90s.

Hunting Season picture

Continuity mistake: When the two young lads jump off the bridge to escape in handcuffs, as they fall together the handcuffs disappear. (01:12:00 - 01:13:00)

gazza2009
Casino Jack picture

Factual error: In golf scene, Kevin Spacey is supposed to be playing golf in St. Andrews. The intensity of sun and the surrounding fauna suggests they are actually playing on a course in the mid latitudes of the US. (00:11:30)

Nokas (2010)

Nokas picture

Continuity mistake: When one of the robbers is walking away with 4 bags stuffed with money, you can see a large stack of money bills sticking out of the bag. In the next shot the bills are gone. (01:04:40)

All Good Things picture

Factual error: When the Senator is looking at the rent ledger, there are entries for each property as well as the date that money was collected. One of the dates is 2/29/74, yet 1974 was not a leap year. The only leap years in that decade were 1972 and 1976. (00:56:30)
