Continuity mistake: Just after Stephanie's truck stops on the cliff edge, she gets out and goes to talk to Ben and Newton who were following her in their Nova truck. She goes around the back to talk to Ben, and sees him taking Number 1 out. In the first shot of here her arms are by her sides, but when the view cuts to a different angle, she has her right hang on the side of the van door.
Continuity mistake: When Johnny gets scared of Stephanie's dog, he moves backwards and falls off the porch onto the ground below. His actual framework stays in the same position, but the tracks he uses to move around are strangely upside down. The tracks are made up of long black rectangles with curved edges on the top, but when we see Johnny lying down, the shaved corners are at the bottom.
Continuity mistake: In one of the first scenes where the robots are being tested on the fake tanks and trucks, you see the robots' lasers being raised from the front. The front of the lasers come up into firing position as opposed to lowering into position. This is not possible considering the lasers are mounted on their backs and the front of the lasers lower into firing position in the rest of the movie.
Revealing mistake: Some shots used in the scene where Johnny runs from the Nova helicopter were shot using the small toy version of Johnny. There were no mountains in the area and a small version was filmed heading towards some big rocks with the camera on the ground to give the impression they were in a mountainous area.
Continuity mistake: Just before we see Johnny fall off the bridge we see a shot of him speeding past some roadblocks. Look at the size of Johnny compared to the roadblocks. They are practically bigger then him. This was obviously a small replica robot filmed with the camera on the ground, to give off the impression it was the real thing.
Continuity mistake: In the scene right after Number 5 almost drives the snack wagon into the lake and the Nova guys are shooting him, you clearly see him get shot in the hydraulic pistons which control his head motions. Yet, in the next scene (in the truck) Number 5 comfortably moves his head.
