Cutthroat Island

Revealing mistake: In the final battle scene Morgan grabs a rope and swings from one ship to the other. She grabs the rope over her head and keeps the rest of the rope in front of her. The rope remains taut all the way to her waist. If she were really holding herself onto the rope, it would be dangle loosely below her hand. The tautness of the rope reveals the safety equipment used in the shot.

Other mistake: When Morgan is in front of a cavern speaking to a man, there is nobody in it. The shot later you see somebody, then nobody again.
