Captain America: The Winter Soldier

Revealing mistake: When Cap is driving the blue Chevrolet Silverado with Black Widow, the gear shift is in the up locked position, not lower on the column, indicating the truck was towed in the scene. (00:54:45)

Factual error: During the Nick Fury chase scene that takes place in D.C., several black and white state highway 6 signs are visible. These signs are unique to Ohio. Route 6 goes straight through downtown Cleveland where the scene was filmed. Plus during other chase scenes several Cleveland landmarks are visible in the background. (00:28:30)

Continuity mistake: After the SHIELD agents have rescued the hostages, Steve begins a fight with one of the terrorists who tells him to take off his helmet. Steve takes it off and drops it beside him, leaving it on the floor. After Steve kicks the terrorist and runs over to him, you'll see in the next shot, that the helmet is still right beside him, despite his run. (00:11:35)

Factual error: The location in DC has latitude and longitude both as N/S - longitude is an east/west factor. (00:13:05)

Character mistake: When Steve is at the Smithsonian, he reads the biography of his friend Bucky. At the start of the description, the bio reads "Born in 1916...", but at the bottom of the description, it reads "Bucky Barnes: 1917 - 1944." (00:18:35)

Continuity mistake: After the Winter Soldier blows up the car he assumed Romanoff was hiding behind, she sneaks up behind him and kicks the gun out of his hand. When he throws her at one of the cars, the gun is on the road to the left of some yellow lines, next to a car. A few shots later, when the Winter Soldier picks up the gun, the gun and car have both moved - the gun is now right on the lines, the car is still the same distance from it. (01:18:00)

Casual Person

Character mistake: When Steve and Romanoff "switch on" Arnim Zola, Zola says "I may not be the man I was when the Captain took me prisoner in 1945." In the first Captain America, it was shown Steve took Zola into custody the same day as his friend Bucky supposedly died. However, the bio of Bucky shown at the Smithsonian earlier in the film said that he died in 1944. (01:00:25)

Visible crew/equipment: When Nick lights his lighter to burn all of his stuff, two white screens are visible in his glasses. (01:59:00)

Continuity mistake: When Steve leaps from the helicopter and onto the boat, he lands in the water. As soon as gets on board the boat, he is completely dry. (00:05:00)

Casual Person

Continuity mistake: When Steve and Romanoff are lying against the knocked over blinds after dodging the grenade, there is a box shown with some papers in it between them. The first shot shows a white piece of paper sticking furthest out of the box. Next shot, the furthest piece of paper sticking out of the box is now a peach coloured piece of paper. (00:12:45)

Casual Person

Continuity mistake: On the bridge when the Winter Soldier attacks; when Steve, Natasha, and Sam are in the car stopped, a Hummer rear ends them and starts to push the car. The first shot of the Winter Soldier shows various cars near him. Then a brief shot of Sam, and back to the Winter Soldier and the various cars have changed drastically.

Continuity mistake: When confronting Nick Fury about Black Widow's mission aboard the Lemurian Star, Cap puts his hands on his hips. In the next shot, his hands are down at his sides. The two shots alternate several times, showing the error. (00:14:20)

Continuity mistake: Nick Fury's black SUV gets hit by several police cars - the driver's airbag deploys and is visible in all shots until the SUV eventually escapes, at which point the airbag has disappeared.

Factual error: As Captain America and the S.H.I.E.L.D team heads to the S.H.I.E.L.D ship, Lemurian Star in the Indian Ocean, both coordinates are North. Longitude has to be E/W and the coordinates link to the Arabian Sea, to the north of the Indian Ocean. (00:03:30)

Continuity mistake: When Captain America takes on the plane outside, the concourse behind him gets shot up and he destroys the plane, which crashes. A little while later the strike team leave the base in convoy along the same concourse that got shot up - there's no damage, and no crashed plane.

Continuity mistake: When Zola's algorithm is deployed and begin acquiring targets, we see a "grid" with the targets chosen. On the right, just above the pictures of the targets, there is a line indicating "targets acquired." Then we see the guns and then a counter indicating the amount of targets acquired, from 210,000 and up, but the next grid we see, in the "targets acquired" line says 133,213 and up. Besides, all the grids have the same pictures, but in different order.

Continuity mistake: There is a sweat stain on Sam's jumper after he finishes jogging with Steve. As he lies against a tree, the stain is around the neck area and some of it is partway down his jumper. When Steve helps him up, the stain has reduced to just sweat around his neck. (00:01:40)

Casual Person

Continuity mistake: At one point near the beginning of the infiltration of the helicarriers, Captain America's chinstrap has a twist from his right jaw down to where it covers his chin. This is visible in two shots. The next time his right side is shown afterward, the twist is gone. The chinstrap is too tight for it to have flipped on its own accidentally, and the pad which covers his chin is molded so it wouldn't have sat properly on his face even if it had somehow flipped around. There were undoubtedly several prop helmets made, and this one must have been put together incorrectly.

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Nick Fury is showing Steve the new Helicarriers, just as Nick says "The satellites can read a terrorist's DNA before he steps outside the spider hole", the two are shown turning around. Nick is shown turning around almost completely and Steve is shown only turning half way. In the next shot, Nick is suddenly turned only half way, facing Steve. (00:16:20)

Casual Person

Factual error: When Rogers is launched through the front window of the bus after the Winter Soldier shoots him with a grenade, the bus is hit by a truck and flips. But if you look closely, the damage is minimal. On the truck it would qualify as a fender bender, and the dent in the bus looks like it was made with one decent swing from a sledgehammer. No way was that collision powerful enough to flip a fourteen ton bus on its side. (01:14:50)
