Minority Report

Audio problem: When the child asks her mother for a balloon from the balloon man, the mom's words don't match her lips. (01:36:50)


Other mistake: When Witwer is killed, he actually reacts to the impact on his head before the shot is heard. We are standing mere feet from the incident, so no 'speed of sound' delay applies. It's an obvious sound error during editing.

Continuity mistake: During the lover-wife-husband scene, the lamp on the night table keeps moving all the time: sometimes slightly away from the bed, others a bit of its screen touches the head rest, and in some angles half of the lamp's screen is touching the bed.

Continuity mistake: When Anderton enters the "ball-room" for the first time in the movie, a guy behind grabs a folder and presses it against his chest. In the next shot he is repeating the movement again. (00:03:35)

Continuity mistake: When we first see the numbers on room 1009, they are all even. Just before Anderton rotates the "6" to its correct position, however, the number is slightly raised.

Continuity mistake: At the start of the movie, two wooden balls are created to name the next victim and killer. After the balls are created, they are dull and unpolished, but their travel through the tubes shows them to now be highly polished and shiny. (00:01:55)

Upvote valid corrections to help move entries into the corrections section.

Suggested correction: After being created they are encased before going down the tube and unseen. They could have easily been polished during this time before then rolling down the tube.


Continuity mistake: When Anderton and Agatha approach room "1009" (which looks like "1006"), there's a stairwell/exit to the right of the door. When Anderton bust open "1006" and goes back for Agatha, there's now a hallway to the right of "1009."


Visible crew/equipment: When John Anderton is walking around the hotel room before meeting Leo Crow, just before he spots the photos on the bed, he glances over towards the direction of the bed - if you look to the left of him, you can make out a cameraman's face and hand where he is holding a camera in the reflection of the glass window.


Continuity mistake: The wooden balls etched with the Perpetrator and Victims show the grain running left-to-right across the names when they are first displayed on the cutting machine. But when Anderton removes the balls and places them on the screen (or drops), the names appear to be written with a pen, and the grain is either non-existent or run top-down across the names. This suggests the balls on display in the cutting machine are nicely generated by a computer and much different to the actual props.

Continuity mistake: When the Precrime team are examining the Precogs in the pool, Fletcher folds his arms. In the next shot he folds his arms again.

Continuity mistake: When Lara, standing, is putting on Lamar's tie while he is seated, he gives himself away regarding the drowning of Anne Lively. Lara's arms stop moving and we see her standing straight, her arms by her side, and she says that she never said that Anne was drowned. We cut back to Lamar, and Lara still has her arms around Lamar.

Continuity mistake: When we see the Leo Crow previsions for the first time, we see the numbers "9" and "6" backwards because we are seeing the previsions from behind the screen. But in the cyberparlor we see the previsions from the same side that Anderton and Riley are watching them, and the numbers are still backward.

Visible crew/equipment: When Anderton is about to enter the Lexus factory he runs into the cops' car. When the passenger door opens, you can see the reflection of a crewmember. (00:49:35)

Continuity mistake: As Witwer tells Laura about John's apartment being full of drugs, she's sitting straight up with her hands at her sides, but in the next shot she has her legs crossed and her arm on the top of the painting. (01:10:20)
