The Iron Giant

Revealing mistake: At the end of the film, the screw is tapping on the window to get out and Hogarth moves to put the box down. The box completely vanishes from the shot for a few frames towards the end of the shot.

Continuity mistake: Kent Mansley, the investigating government officer, can be seen sitting (humiliated) in the back of an army truck in a convoy leaving the scrapyard (after he has been told by the general that 'he will be in charge of the toilets from now on'). A few minutes later he is driving a 'civilian' car in the middle of that same convoy. (01:01:05 - 01:04:45)
