Kong: Skull Island

Continuity mistake: During the arrival to the island there are 11 choppers. The first time Kong appears he takes down two. In the next sequence where they all see him for the first time 11 choppers still fly by Kong. (00:30:40)


Continuity mistake: When the group has just encountered Kong, a visually dramatic scene shows Kong silhouetted against a deep orange setting sun. Yet immediately before and immediately after the scene, the sun is high in the sky and it does not get dark for what would be several hours in the movie timeline. (00:31:50)


Continuity mistake: When the crew gets to the island, Mason is taking some pics with a soldier behind her that disappears between shots.


Continuity mistake: In the beginning while Marlow struggles with the Japanese guy he's face down but in the next second is suddenly face up.


Continuity mistake: While Randa and Brooks are following Willis at the hall, there is a woman in red that passes by but in the next shot disappears.


Continuity mistake: Before Mason gets in the plane she has her hair behind her neck, but when she talks with Packard she has it on the side and then back behind her neck again.


Continuity mistake: At the beginning before Marlow gets into the jungle he's wearing a yellow jacket that disappears.


Continuity mistake: At the time Marlow lands on the island the sun shines like it's noon but after he gets into the jungle the sun is lower, like it's dawn.


Continuity mistake: When Col Packard is introduced, one can see on the left side of the desk behind him a wooden object beside a picture. In the next shot that object moves to the right behind the radio, only to return to the picture in the following shot. And it moves after this shot again behind the radio, and then stays there. (00:10:00 - 00:11:00)

Continuity mistake: When Col Packard shoots the "ugly bird" he is aiming left handed but after he shoots he is holding the weapon right handed.

Continuity mistake: When Weaver is on the top of the rocks to fire the flare gun to signal the boat, she is wearing her camera/tote bag around her and you can see it on her when she fires the flare at the skull crawler but when she is knocked off the rocks and falls backwards into the water, she isn't wearing the bag.

Continuity mistake: After Kong has destroyed all of the helicopters, Cole opens a tin of meat that is full to the top when it is first opened. But in the next shot, he takes one spoon full, and the tin has much less meat in than before.

Casual Person

Factual error: In the scene at the Bangkok docks, the ship has the name Athena but with the Greek letter Lambda instead of each capital letter A. This would make the name something like Lthenl, and is a nonsense mix of Greek and English (Roman) letters.

Hank Marlow: Kong's a pretty good king. Keeps to himself, mostly. This is his home, we're just guests. But you don't go into someone's house and start dropping bombs, unless you're picking a fight.
