Cube

Continuity mistake: In the opening, the camera zooms in on an eye that is a very light grey-ish blue. The camera then cuts to a man lying on the floor. The implication is that it's this man's eye. However, the man's eyes are brown.

THGhost

Continuity mistake: Throughout the movie they are told to suck on the buttons from their shirts. In one scene, once Holloway climbs into the next room, Quentin is sucking on his button. He immediately speaks to Worth, muddling some words because of the button in his mouth. All of a sudden, the button disappears from his mouth and is in his hand again, and he then puts it back into his mouth.

Continuity mistake: When Holloway is hanging outside the Cube from the rope of clothes, it would seem that it disappears at the moment she falls. We see her climbing up toward Quentin, and the rope is around her waist. Then they're holding hands face-to-face, and in the next shot when she slips, the rope stays still. Then, as Quentin goes back inside, it's disappeared entirely, and he doesn't take it back in with him. (00:47:00)

Continuity mistake: The blood patterns on Worth's face periodically change throughout the rest of the movie after Quentin beats him with the shoe.

Knever

Deliberate mistake: Leaven spends too much time thinking about if 645 and 372 are prime numbers to be believable. But she knows the factors of 649 and the result of 26 to the power of 3 almost immediately. Plus anyone with any maths knowledge whatsoever would know that any even number (or one divisible by 5) can't be prime, so 645 and 372 could be dismissed without even thinking about it.

Quentin: Start with us. We got an escape artist and a cop. There's gotta be a reason for that. You're a doctor, Holloway. That gives you a function, a reason, right?
Holloway: No! It just makes me go, "Why me and not one of the other ten million doctors out there?"
