Last Action Hero

Continuity mistake: When Jack rips the door off the cab, he first breaks the top hinge and enters the cab. In the next shot when he pulls the cabbie out of the car, the door is completely off and laying on the ground. A few shots later when Jack grabs the newspaper, the door is seen hanging again. (01:40:10)

Continuity mistake: When they are in the ambulance, Danny screams 'I said, turn around!' and draws his gun. The next shot shows the driver looking to the rear and getting scared by the gun. In this shot you can see by the window that the car is totally stopped, and some car with a yellow light is passing by them. But in the very next shot, the ambulance is stopping (you can even hear the tires) and there is no car with the yellow light to be seen. (01:55:05)

Continuity mistake: When Nick tells Danny that he can arrange a preview of the movie, he puts his glasses on, yet from the side-angle they're off.

Continuity mistake: During the car chase when Danny is in movie-world, Jack is firing the thugs and his hair moves a lot during the wide angle, but barely at all a frame later in the close-up.

Continuity mistake: When Benedict pulls Leo's finger at the funeral to start the timer on the wristwatch, you can see that the timer was pre-set for ten minutes on the upper part of the display and the countdown is in the lower part of the display. There are two more shots of the countdown on the watch. First at 3:32 left when Jack knocks out the doctor and then at about 30 seconds left over the tar pits. Both of these shots show that a piece of silver tape has been applied to the upper half of the display, probably to cover a lower starting count so they wouldn't have to wait 10 minutes between shots. (01:07:50 - 01:18:05)

Continuity mistake: When Benedict is getting away from Jack's daughter's house he gets into a white car, but when Jack shoots him the car is black.

Suggested correction: It's the same car the whole time. The car he gets into is black, but the way the camera picks up the light that hits part of the door does fade out of the color some, but you can see the rest is black.

Continuity mistake: The chopper lights a bright laser light that reflects on Jack's forehead. When the crane behind appears, the light disappears, yet in the immediate close-up of Jack's face the beam reflection is still there.

Continuity mistake: When Jack is being chased and the guys in the red pick up truck are throwing dynamite at him, they throw one that hits a parked car just as Jack makes a hard left turn. The next shot has the car exploding and Jack having made a hard right turn.
