Unbreakable mistake picture

Continuity mistake: After Willis rescues the people, he's at breakfast with his son and wife. He slides the newspaper to his son. Close-up on paper (beside orange juice) shows "Bold" typestyle on story slug. Camera pans up to Willis, cuts to son, cut back to newspaper. Suddenly typestyle is italicised (noticeable on "f" in "found"). (01:34:30)

Continuity mistake: In the scene where David is looking through the newspaper clippings, he flips through them, and if you watch carefully, you will see one of them appear twice. (00:33:30)

Continuity mistake: In the final scene of Samuel L. Jackson's office when we first see Jackson wheel himself down the last ramp towards his desk, three computer towers sit below the desk - two off to the left side, one off to the right with space between to wheel his chair up underneath. After the scene cuts to Bruce Willis and then back to Jackson, the two towers on the left have been moved closer to the one on the right. (01:34:10)

Continuity mistake: After David returns from the hospital he pauses at the bottom of the stairs. First his watch is visible then in the next shot it's covered by his sleeve only to be exposed again in the next shot.

Continuity mistake: The train derailed "just before" (according to the news) 3:20 pm, as seen in the scene where Joseph watches the news on TV (clock over the TV). But when David reads the newspaper later when lying in bed with Joseph the newspaper says it derailed at 9:34 am. Seen on DVD (European Version) (00:08:20 - 00:31:10)

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Bruce Willis is sitting at the table with his wife and son, there is an orange juice container on the table, the type of container that is a carton but has a screw on cap on the top. When Bruce's son is about to sit down at the table, the cap on the OJ carton is facing Bruce. When the camera focuses on the child, the cap is facing the boy, and no-one had touched the carton. (01:29:40)

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Bruce Willis comes up from behind the killer in orange, he makes him drop his beer he's been drinking, but when they show the beer on the ground during the fight there is none spilled on the floor. (01:29:45)

Continuity mistake: When Mr. Glass is at the comic store, he hits 2 or 3 comic stands. From the last one, 7-8 comic books fall down to the floor but in the wide shot over 20 are on the ground.

Factual error: When Bruce Willis is looking at his old high school news clippings you see a professional baseball score on one of the newspaper clippings. The game was Pittsburgh vs. Arizona Diamondbacks. The Diamondbacks were not a team yet when he was in high school. (00:33:35)

Elijah Price: Now that we know who you are, I know who I am. I'm not a mistake. In the comics, you know how you can tell who the arch-villain is going to be? He's the exact opposite of the hero. And sometimes they're friends, just like you and me. I should have known way back when. You know why, David? Because of the kids. They called me Mr. Glass.
