Best adventure movie mistakes of 2011

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2 picture

Plot hole: One of Snape's memories show Lily telling baby Harry to be safe, be strong. That had to have occurred before Voldemort killed Lily. Snape was not in the house until after Lily was killed and Voldemort was gone. Only Lily and Harry should have had that memory, but not Snape.

X-Men: First Class picture

Continuity mistake: When Mystique is on the exercise table and Erik lifts the bar off her, her right leg changes from stretched out to bent from the different camera shots.

Amberer
Transformers: Dark of the Moon picture

Other mistake: So let me get this straight: Optimus Prime has Energon Swords hidden in both of his arms, with which he can slice through an entire Decepticon in one chop, yet when he is hanging from a few wires, despite having one arm entirely free, he can't cut himself loose?

Other mistake: On one of the SHIELD monitors, "perimeter" is spelled "perimiter".

Captain America: The First Avenger picture

Factual error: When the action moves to England after the failed award ceremony, the British Union Flag hanging from the wall is upside down. The broad white band should be at the top left (nearest the top of the flag pole).

The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 1 picture

Revealing mistake: When Bella calls Rosalie, you can briefly see the cell phone screen before she puts it to her ear. The lock screen is still visible, showing she didn't dial anything. (00:55:45)

Sammi
Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides picture

Factual error: Barbossa addresses one of his officers as "lieutenant-commander". This rank was not introduced into the Royal Navy until 1914.

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Mater enters the terminal at the airport, a mark showing that his symbol was completely scraped off is visible on one of his sides, but when he goes through the gate, that mark is no longer there.

Puss in Boots picture

Continuity mistake: When Puss is telling his childhood story and he is in the orphanage, when Boy Blue spins Humpty, Humpty's hat is off, it comes back later in another shot.

Rango picture

Continuity mistake: When Rango was at the mayor's office, the mayor grabs out a jug of water, and he opens the lid. But in the next shot, the lid is sealed again.

14

Hugo (2011)

Hugo picture

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)

Hanna (2011)

Hanna picture

Continuity mistake: At the end of the movie when Marissa is chasing Hanna up the hill with the gun, she is wearing black boots. Shortly after in the factory, she is wearing high heels.

Spy Kids: All the Time in the World picture

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)

Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows picture

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.

Colombiana picture

Factual error: When Cattleya escapes through the sewer drain and winds up in front of the U.S. Embassy, she uncovers the manhole all by herself. Impossible for such a young child to do.

Season of the Witch picture

Factual error: Behmen and Felson land on the '"Coast of Styria", which was in Austria, a landlocked country.

The Three Musketeers picture

Audio problem: When Rochefort yells "Finish them off!" during the attempted ambush of the Musketeers, the sound doesn't match his mouth.

virtual-toast
Gnomeo & Juliet picture

Continuity mistake: When Gnomeo goes to rescue Juliet from her pedal stone, Gnomeo is hit in the face with a tomato. When he takes the tomato off his face, if you look closely, you see there's some traces of the tomato still on his face. But in the next shot, it is gone. (01:09:20)

Casual Person
Age of Heroes picture

Factual error: In the scenes of Ian Fleming in the Naval Intelligence HQ, there is a map of Scandinavia on the wall. The map already has the post-war borders of Finland on it.

Gaius
The Eagle picture

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.

Kung Fu Panda 2 picture

Continuity mistake: When Po and the Furious Five are in the top floor in Shen's palace, the lights above them are brightly lit. After Mantis smashes the cannon through the floor, the lights turn off.

The Grey picture

Continuity mistake: At the end of the movie, when Liam Neeson looks around at the wolves approaching from the forest, the black frostbite mark on Liam Neeson's face is on his right cheek instead of his left cheek. (01:50:00)

MLohmann
Sanctum picture

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)

Conan the Barbarian picture
Conan the Barbarian mistake picture

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
30 Minutes or Less picture

Factual error: The security guard in the bank is carrying a revolver as a sidearm but has semi-automatic magazine pouches on his duty belt.
