Seven

Revealing mistake: Sloth is shown with three "arms." It's most easily noticed after he wakes up. His right arm is bent at the elbow, pointing to the ceiling, his left arm is pressed tightly to his left side between his torso and the jacket used to conceal the upper part of the prosthesis, and his third "arm", the prosthesis, is bent at the elbow, hanging halfway off the bed, and pointing to the left of his body. It has several large, protruding "veins" in it and the stump where the hand should be is off-screen.

Revealing mistake: In the scene where Det. Mills is chasing John Doe through the streets they end up in an alley, and Doe knocks Mills down with a crowbar. As Somerset runs up, Doe runs off and Mills drops back down to the ground and rolls off his side onto his stomach. As he does so you can see a red colored tube running from the back of his jacket/collar, across the back of his head to his forehead, supplying "blood". (01:14:10)

Revealing mistake: When Victor springs back to life, his tongue is visible, even though the doctor says he chewed it off. This is seen just after Somerset says, "Emergency on that ambulance!"

Continuity mistake: When Somerset is in the taxi on his way to the Library, he is wearing a blue and white shirt, yet when he arrives at the Library, his shirt is completely white. (00:24:42)

Trivia: Sloth actually has three arms. See the screen shot at http://img14.imageshack.us/img14/2686/nouvelleimagem.png You can see his real arm next to him and the fake one on the right. Furthermore, when the cops first see him, his hurt arm is in a kind of shirt.

Question: What did Gweneth Paltrow do to deserve being killed? I know Brad Pitt was supposed to kill Kevin Spacey, but I've never understood how it fitted into the 'Seven Deadly sins' that were the basis for the other murders.

Answer: Traci was an innocent victim. She wasn't one of the sins, nor being "punished" for being a "sinner." She was actually just a mechanism to trigger (no pun intended) WRATH in Mills, thus completing "the Seven." Also, you could consider that her death - the shattering of Mills' life - acts as the "punishment" of the sin of Wrath. But that would be punishment before the actual sin, so idk if that makes sense, really. Just a thought.

Answer: Doe claims to represent the sin of "Envy" when he killed Mills wife; he was envious of Mills' normal life, and killed Tracy after failing to "play husband" with her. After that Mills kills Doe by shooting him repeatedly, becoming the embodiment of "Wrath".

Answer: The significance actually dates back to the Medieval Period. Taking the life of a man's wife and children was considered equivalent to taking his life. This makes Mills the wrath victim. By taking Doe's life, Mills turns him into the Envy victim.
