Continuity mistake: Early in the movie when Thomas falls overboard, John Smith ties a rope around his waist (00:02:56) and jumps in after him. Thomas is very far away from the ship (00:03:12). But when the men pull John and Thomas up, John is holding on to the rope with one hand and the end is left dangling (00:03:36). One of the men who pulled them up then coils the rope with a mere two coils (00:03:48), not nearly long enough to have reached Thomas while he was overboard. In the same scene, when we are viewing the men pulling John and Thomas up from above (00:03:38) there is no extra rope at their feet as there should have been for such a long rope.

Continuity mistake: When John Smith is going to be killed and Pocahontas falls over him, between shots she changes position.


Continuity mistake: Right after John Smith gets captured and is taken away, Nakoma grabs Pocahontas' hand, but when it shows the shadow of them they aren't holding hands. Then in the very next shot they are but it doesn't show them grabbing each other's hand again.

Continuity mistake: When John Smith is on the stretcher to be taken on board the ship, watch as Thomas and the other guy tell him good luck and good speed. John closes his eyes, opens his mouth slightly, leans his head back - and freezes for the rest of the shot.

Continuity mistake: When Pocahontas sees John Smith for the first time, John is climbing up a cliff face and then a tree. You can see his musket strapped to his back as he's climbing. But after he tells Thomas he's getting a better look and then is shown in the tree, his gun has vanished.
