John Wick

New this month Continuity mistake: In the night club, when John is fighting the last guy before leaving, the guy throws John, he lands on his back, and has no gun/holster in his waist band on his back. A few seconds later a small pistol and holder appears and he takes it out and shoots at the other guy.


Revealing mistake: When Viggo pushes the car off the edge and it hits the ground, as it rolls you can see that the engine/transmission, drive shift and tank have been removed. (01:26:00)


Other mistake: When John is talking to the club bouncer, John says that he lost weight, to which he replies (in Russian) "Twenty kilograms." The translation says "over sixty pounds," but 20 kilograms is just over 44 pounds.


Character mistake: When he called for a dinner reservation for 12 at his home it should have been 13, as he put 13 men down. (00:32:05)

Continuity mistake: When John first meets Marcus in the cemetery, John's umbrella changes from a standard 8 rib when lowering the coffin, then a 22 rib close up, then back to 8 ribs in a far shot of the two men shaking hands. (00:04:15 - 00:05:45)


Continuity mistake: After subduing one of the henchmen at his house, John sees another one come behind his staircase's side glass pane. He shoots the henchman, putting a bullet through the glass. The shot changes to him finishing the henchman, but when the shot goes back to the stairs seconds later, the bullet hole has disappeared from the glass. (00:29:55)

Other mistake: When we see John's wife collapse in front of the bride, just as the camera cuts out of this little cut scene, the camera wobbles very noticeably. Almost as if someone had knocked it. (00:02:25)

Continuity mistake: The first time John's alarm goes off at 0600, it is early moments of dawn. A little while later in the movie we see John being woken up by the puppy at 0600 and it is brighter, almost mid morning kind of light. (00:01:35 - 00:07:50)

Revealing mistake: Just as John grabs the dog after being attacked, the dog is added post production. This is identifiable as his little finger goes through the dog. (00:14:00)

Continuity mistake: When Viggo crashes into John's Charger, it's bent out of shape pretty badly, almost to what would be halfway to the driver's seat. Yet John is fine, and in the next shot, the car is basically too.


Continuity mistake: When John goes on the short rampage with the assault rifle we see one of the henchmen climb into an SUV and floor it. It's clear by the hubcaps and rear of the SUV that it's a Ford Expedition, but the vehicle that hits the SUV into john is a Chevy Tahoe. (01:04:00)

Viggo Tarasov: I heard you struck my son.
Aureilo: Yes, sir, I did.
Viggo Tarasov: And may I ask why?
Aureilo: Yeah, well, because he stole John Wick's car, sir, and, uh, killed his dog.
Viggo Tarasov: Oh.
