Best adventure movie mistakes of 2011
Continuity mistake: There is a scene where Hugo is on the station and sees a key down on the tracks. There are two seperate shots of the key and both times it is buried in the stones next to a sleeper. Then Hugo jumps down onto the tracks to pick it up and its now quite sat on the middle of the sleeper when he picks it up. (01:22:30 - 01:23:10)
Continuity mistake: When Tick Tock freezes Rebecca and Cecil, they are in one position, and when they go to the close up of them frozen, they are in a different position. When it zooms back out again they are in the first position. Also, when they are frozen moving on the conveyor belt, they are back in the position they were in on the close up shot. (00:47:50 - 00:48:10)
Factual error: In the scene straight after the opening credits we are taken to Baker Street where construction work is being done. This work is identified by a sign with a logo as being for the underground line. The logo type face was developed by a Mr. Edward Johnston for London Underground from 1913 but the distinctive typeface used in the film was not in place until 1919. This is obviously long after the 1891 setting of the film.
Continuity mistake: When Marcus Aquila and Esca set off for the North they are riding horses, Marcus on a dark brown horse, with a short mane and Esca on a bay (you see close ups of them on the horses, and several screen shots of them galloping on them). However, after their first overnight stay in the North, Marcus' Horse is black with a long mane, Esca's bay horse is suddenly a white horse with no explanation for this. His horse remains white for the rest of the movie.
Continuity mistake: In the opening scene just before Victoria descends into the cave, she's wearing two headlights, the bigger one is on her right side and the smaller one is on her left side. In the next scene while she is talking to Josh, the position of those two headlights changed. (00:15:10)brianwu21
Continuity mistake: When Conan first fights Remo, Conan places a blood stain on his forehead by pressing his sword to it. Remo then runs off, and Conan gives chase immediately, pausing only to get Tamara on his horse. The stain is still there when Conan mounts his horse. The next time we see them, Conan and Tamara is still chasing Remo, but now Conan's face is completely clean. It is highly unlikely he would pause in pursuit of one of his father's killers to wash his face. (00:47:55)Twotall
Continuity mistake: The giant maker compound was purple when Franqcuer was created, but it turned orange when Lucille made another giant flea.
