Other mistake: The name on the red ball at the beginning has the name 'Donald Dubin' on it. But in the end credits, it is spelled 'Donald Doobin'. (00:02:10 - 02:17:40)

Other mistake: Leo Crow grabs Anderton's gun and they each fight for control of it. Crow succeeds in forcing Anderton's hand to pull the trigger, killing Crow. The problem is, right after the gun is fired, we see a shot of Anderton with his arm fully extended and with his entire hand holding the entire gun, as if he had aimed and fired the gun himself. Such a sequence of events is at least totally illogical if not physically impossible. (01:44:10)

Continuity mistake: In the Jetpack scene, where John and the other two cops bump the ceiling, if you look at their food and drinks on the table, everything gets knocked over and spilt, yet in the following shot everything is neat, and the drinks have reappeared unspilt. (00:49:00)

The-Immortal

Visible crew/equipment: In the scene where Anderton is going to kill Crow, the camera angle changes to behind Crow. In the window behind him you can see the demolitions charge used to create a bullet hole and crack the glass. (01:44:05)

Continuity mistake: At the end of the film when John's wife is talking to Lamarr he says "I haven't worn this in years" and turns around, in the following shot he turns around again. (01:57:15)

The-Immortal

Other mistake: When Anderton and the pre-cops are gearing up to prevent the Howard Marks murder, there is a shot of Anderton loading his gun. If you watch closely you can see he places a clip under the gun but doesn't actually put it in, he just sort of mimes inserting it. (00:08:55)

Continuity mistake: At the beginning of the film when Howard Marks goes out for the paper, he walks down his steps outside and reaches the bottom, twice. (00:04:10)

Continuity mistake: When John and the other precrime agents go to arrest Howard Marks, they stand in a group trying to figure out which house is the right one. A couple of shots later there's a wide shot of John from behind with nobody else there, and a couple of shots later still, the agents are all in a group again. (00:11:00)

Madstunts

Continuity mistake: When the pre crime cops are looking for John in the mall, there are 7 of them on the upper balcony, the leader tells two of them to "take the east end," and you see two of them run off to the left, yet in the following shot all seven of them are running to the right. (01:33:15)

The-Immortal

Continuity mistake: When John runs into the alley he runs past a slightly burnt out car, but in the following shots the car is on the opposite side of the alley. (00:45:55)

The-Immortal

Factual error: In the scene when Anderton escapes out of the Maglev Car, there's barely any wind blowing his hair or jacket, even though the car is moving at intense speeds and he can barely keep his balance. He jumps from car to car on a vertical track, jacket is not moving. Then he jumps on to the roof of another car and you him from the inside of the car, there's no wind movement on him at all. (00:43:55 - 00:44:55)

Continuity mistake: When Anderton is finally caught at Lara's place, we see a shot (from behind Anderton) of the precop resting the top of the halo on the back of Anderton's head. In the next shot, the halo is rested onto his head again. (02:02:00)

Matty Blast

Visible crew/equipment: When John and Agatha come to Rufus T Riley's place there is a low camera view of them walking through a doorway as Rufus starts saying about Anderton getting 'a little jerky for himself'. To the left of the doorway the crew are reflected going backwards filming the action.

Continuity mistake: When John visits the creator of precrime in the greenhouse, in one scene the old lady kisses John, her hand changes from being at the side of John's face to holding it at the front. (00:59:40)

Continuity mistake: At the beginning of the film when Anderton and Danny Witwer first meet, in one shot Danny Witwer is standing about six foot away, in the following shot he is really close to Anderton. (00:06:50)

The-Immortal

Continuity mistake: During the scene where the police first go to arrest Howard and John is deciding which door is the right one his plastic face plate is down and in the next shot it is clearly up. (00:10:55)

Continuity mistake: When the cheated husband says "I forgot my glasses", the lover is on top of the wife, and tries to sneak by bouncing way up and then turning to his left. The jump is cut and the angle changes to a close up of the lover, but this time he is right next to the wife, as if he had just moved aside. No bounce. You'll need to freeze the image to notice it.

Suggested correction: If you have to freeze frame, or use slo-mo, to see a mistake, it's not a valid entry.

Continuity mistake: During the Howard Marks previsions, Anderton notices that the two images of the kid and the man show the kid on different sides. At first, he rotates his hand counter-clockwise (from his point-of-view) to see the image where the kid is on his right, and clockwise to the one where the kid is on the left. The camera cuts away, then cuts back; now the opposite is true (clockwise = kid is on the right, counter-clockwise = kid on left).

Continuity mistake: In the scene when Anderton escapes out of the Maglev Car, we see him jump into a room full of gymnasts. He is on the floor with his legs up in the air, then we see him lower his legs. Yet, in the next shot his legs are back in the air again and we see his legs go down again. (00:43:10)

Continuity mistake: After John has had his eyes changed and the cops send the spiders into the rooms, there is a shot of John kneeling down. Behind him, the fridge is open, yet a few shots later he crawls past the kitchen and the fridge is then closed. (01:15:00 - 01:16:20)
