Tron

Revealing mistake: After Flynn, Tron and Ram take their drink, they resume their journey in their stolen Light Cycles. There is a shot of them coming around a corner and riding along a cliff side. If you look carefully (this is painfully obvious if you go frame by frame) they don't actually come around the corner. Their Light Cycles simply appear one by one and they make their turn.

Revealing mistake: When the first of the blue bikes hits the wall and makes the hole, there is a rubber tyre bouncing away from the explosion. Any time that you see the back wheel of the cycles, there is no rubber tire. This is supposed to be the digital world. Even the tanks, with all the accompanying sounds does not have rubber on the tracks, as there are no tracks.

Movie Nut

Revealing mistake: When the guard on top of the cells is ushering Flynn out, you can plainly see his shadow cast on the solid floor. The action below is obviously superimposed.

Revealing mistake: When Alan gets up to go to see Dillinger, look at the cubicles. The first row that Alan came out of is real. In the immediate next row, the cubicle that is adjacent to Alan's has no visible exit, and the two that would be heading toward the white wall seem to be only leading to each other. The rest of the cubicles in the area are all a matte painting used to extend the set.

Movie Nut

Revealing mistake: With the exception of the set up and ending "real world" sequences, this is all in the digital world. There is no sun, yet when Tron, Flynn and RAM are drinking at the pool of energy, there is a reflection of what appears to be a plaza and a bright day outside the windows.

Movie Nut

Continuity mistake: Tron sends his memory disk to talk to Alan. After Tron communicates with his user Alan1, Alan sends him back the disk with new data on it to destroy the MCP. When Tron receives the disk it is like a Frisbee, solid on the top and hollow on the bottom. When he receives the disk the hollow part is on the bottom. He holds the disk in front of him and starts talking about "the key to the new order". The shot changes and the disk has been reversed, hollow side toward him and solid side away from him. He did not have time to rotate the disk. (01:08:10)

Ed Dillinger: What's the project you're working on?
Alan Bradley: Well, it's called Tron. It's a security program itself, actually. It monitors all contacts between our system and other systems. It finds anything going on that's not scheduled, it shuts it down. I sent you a memo on it.
Ed Dillinger: Part of the Master Control Program?
Alan Bradley: No, it'll run independently. It can watchdog the MCP as well.

Trivia: Shortly after the lightcycles escape from the arena, we cut to Sark who is staring in anger at a blue map. On the right hand side of the map is Pac Man, complete with animation and sounds from the old arcade game.
