Spiral: From the Book of Saw

Audio problem: When William reveals himself as the killer, he asks Zeke to be his partner. When Zeke says "I'm in," in a wide-shot, if you look closely, his mouth doesn't move, revealing the line was added in post.


Audio problem: When Zeke is introduced and talking about Forrest Gump, he says the line "He beat China in ping-pong!" But if you look close, his mouth movements don't match the line. The same thing happens later in the scene when he mutters "f**k outta here, man."


Audio problem: During the final test, at one point Marcus says "Shoot this piece of s**t Ezekiel, now." In the first shot, it's clear he's saying something entirely different as his mouth movements don't match the dialogue. The scene then cuts to a closeup mid-line, and the closeup does match... but the first shot doesn't match in the slightest.


Continuity mistake: SPOILERS: During the final scene, when Samuel L. Jackson is "puppeted" to lift his arm up to make it look like he's pointing a gun at the SWAT team, the number of laser-sights visible on his chest changes between cuts. In the wide-shot, there's only three, but when it punches into a close-up, suddenly there are five.

Question: Is Chris Rock's beard throughout the film an appliance, or did Rock actually grow it out? (I know his goatee in the flashback is fake, I'm talking about the beard he has during all the modern day scenes.) I could swear I saw a little glue on his chin next to his beard in one scene, like it was an appliance, but I couldn't quite tell, so I didn't submit it as a mistake.
