Hudson Hawk

Revealing mistake: Gratuitous car explosions are nothing new in action films ... but this time the ambulance explodes in mid-air before even hitting anything. (00:32:22)


Revealing mistake: When Bruce is making a phone call, the glass of the phone booth is normal. Just before he swings the blond thug around into it, a pane is shown that is obviously fake - it is discoloured and not smooth. (00:47:00)


Revealing mistake: Alfred's sword leaves a large dent when it gets stuck in the wood. A few shots later, the sword moves, the dent dissapears and the wood actually wobbles as if made of rubber.

Dr Wilson

Revealing mistake: In the Vatican, when the security cage falls on the policeman, he stays still for two shots because he has been replaced by a dummy.

Dr Wilson

Revealing mistake: At Da Vinci's castle, hit Pause when Eddie steals the crystal. It is actually a little frog statue. The prop was apparently unavailable during the shooting of this scene and they took an object of the same color.

Dr Wilson

Revealing mistake: When Tony and Eddie jump from the Mayflower's building, the ground on which they fall bounces.

Dr Wilson

Revealing mistake: When Hudson is researching how to steal Da Vinci's book he comes to a staircase. Along the walls are bookcases - if you look properly you can see these are flat, with the book spines just painted on.


Continuity mistake: When Tommy and Darwin Mayflower are in the back of the limo, Darwin dives out and the door slams immediately before Tommy has time to catch it. The shot changes to outside the limo and Darwin is just now jumping from the limo. It is not just the same shot from a different angle because this time the door stays open much longer, long enough for the limo to drive out of the shot. From this angle there would have been more than enough time for Tommy to grab the door.
