Jigsaw picture

Revealing mistake: During the opening trap, at one point one of the five "Bucket Heads" starts banging on the wall behind them. If you look very closely, you can see the set-wall waver slightly as it's struck, revealing it's not really a concrete wall. (And it's not supposed to be the doorway that is later revealed during the final twist. It's a separate section of wall). (00:05:40)

Suggested correction: No it's not the section that is a door, but that door does prove vital here. By showing the door, shows there is a section behind the wall. Meaning the wall we see is most likely a completely false wall and not the structural wall. With it being a false wall it is entire pleasurable that it could move.

When Jigsaw opens the door, you can see the walls are indeed solid and are at least 6-8 inches thick. Given the fact they appear to be made of concrete and run floor-to-ceiling, sorry... there's no way they are moving when someone bangs on them. Also, why would Jigsaw make a "false wall" that was so easy to move when someone hit it? He'd be setting himself up to possibly be caught. Sorry, but this particular correction is just too far-fetched. It's just a mistake.

Marshall picture

Revealing mistake: Back at his NAACP homebase, Marshall meets with the boss who is already sending him to deal with another case. In the close-up of the newspaper he's reading, check out between the actor's fingers. You can tell that half of the article, which begins in English, suddenly switches into Latin 'lorem ipsum' filler text. (00:06:20)

Murder on the Orient Express picture

Revealing mistake: As the train approaches and stands in Brod Station, it becomes rather obvious that the smoke emitted by the steam locomotive is "painted in" by computer. It does not move or change shape as real smoke would. A shame, as the steam effects earlier in the film are very realistic.
