Vertical Limit

Continuity mistake: After his death, McLaren's body keeps changing position and his eyes appear open and closed during the scenes.

Malaver

Continuity mistake: When the rescue team are jumping from the helicopter to the side of the mountain, the chopper suddenly swings causing Monique to dive for cover. When she dives to the floor there is nothing around her only snow and ice, yet in the following shot when the propeller blades are close to her, a large rock has appeared to her right which wasn't there in the previous shot. (01:00:15)

The-Immortal

Factual error: Nitroglycerin does not react with sunlight, nor does it boil in sunlight.

Revealing mistake: When Wick is rubbing his toeless feet, the shot changes so that the camera is behind him and you can see him still rubbing except now you can see that he is simply curling his toes over.

Factual error: When the expedition is unloading from the helicopter, it shows a view of the lady with the helicopter blades about to cut her head off. It then shows a view of the helicopter, perfectly upright, and people are still jumping off! She then gets up and crawls to the rock wall, which in a full view you can see that it is at least 15 feet away from the edge. The helicopter blades follow her, perfectly parallel with the ground. It is physically impossible - the helicopter would have to be underground for this to happen.

Continuity mistake: Peter walks into a tent where Monique tells him where to find Skip. The stubble he has when talking to Monique is totally gone when he finds Skip, immediately afterward. (00:16:50)

Continuity mistake: When the first climb the "K2" mountain Annie is breathing perfectly without opening her mouth, while the others are gasping for air. She notices she's not breathing hard and all of a sudden her mouth opens wide and she starts gasping too.

Continuity mistake: When Vaughn and Annie come up with the idea of some kind of signal to let Peter know where they are, Vaughn grabs the bag on the snow next to him with his left hand, but in the following shot the bag is in his right hand. (01:40:25)

The-Immortal

Character mistake: Those are the most haphazardly secured cases of nitro I've ever seen in a movie. Couldn't they spare a shoelace or duct tape to secure the top?

Continuity mistake: At the beginning, when Peter Garrett is singing the song, he ends on a high note and stretches his arm out, but his body remains on the wall. In the next shot he has everything stretched out with his body away from the wall. (00:02:10)

The-Immortal

Continuity mistake: When Chris O'Donnell blows a hole over the ice cave, his sister is directly below the hole, even though she was shown running into a side cave for protection.

Visible crew/equipment: After the father tells Chris O'Donnell to cut the rope, and there is a zoom shot of a nervous O'Donnell, the camera cuts to where the father will fall. If you look at the top of the screen, you can see part of the father's harness dangling.

Visible crew/equipment: Just after Vaughn and the others have started there climb up K2, Annie is pulling herself across a rope from one mountain to another. In the reflection of Vaughn's goggles, in his close up, the large white panel and what looks like a camera are visible. (00:29:15)

The-Immortal

Continuity mistake: In the first several shots of Wick's frozen wife, her jacket hood sits partway down her forehead. When Wick approaches her, the hood has moved up higher on her head, so you can see her entire forehead and some of her hair.

Continuity mistake: When Wick finds his wife on the mountain and Peter Garrett says, "Is this what your looking for," Peter's hand on the Dex case changes somewhat between shots from being held at the side to being held at the bottom. (01:31:05)

The-Immortal

Revealing mistake: When the expedition is going to pick up the old guy, (I can't quite remember the name) and they are about to land in the snow, you can clearly see that there are already marks from a helicopter.

Continuity mistake: When Peter, Wick and the others transfer from the helicopter to the mountain, in the first shot of the mountain there are countless boulders and rocks where they get off, yet in all other shots, the rocks and boulders have gone. (00:58:00 - 00:58:30)

The-Immortal

Continuity mistake: When we see Peter in the hut taking photographs, in the previous shot from a small distance from beyond the two tigers, there is only one large rock then one behind that one. When the shot goes to Peter's camera there is now two small rocks in line with each other. (00:06:35)

The-Immortal

Continuity mistake: When Vaughn, Annie and Tom have fallen down inside the mountain, the camera cuts to Skip trying to call them on the radio. When the camera cuts to some people behind him, a big man is leaning towards another man sitting with a headset on. In the following shot facing Skip, that man is now standing up in the background . (00:39:30)

The-Immortal

Factual error: I'm a skydiver and when we fly above 20,000 feet it is mandatory to have oxygen masks on. Our friend Billy flies in at base camp at 23,000 feet, stays there for only 2 days and races off for the summit, without acclimatizing or wearing oxygen.
