The Transporter

Continuity mistake: When surrounded by police and a garbage truck, Frank drives his car from the overpass onto the passing transport trailer below, then lands behind a hatchback and in front of two cars - a white compact with a sunroof and a grey hatchback. In one specific shot from atop the trailer, as Frank rolls his window down (before he requests the gun) the only vehicle behind Frank's car is the white compact, which is at the trailer's rear. Note things such as the trailer's safety bars, and the view through the compact's windshield for starters. That grey hatchback is back when the ramp is lowered, for the ensuing crashes.

Continuity mistake: When Frank begins his revenge rampage on Wall Street's men, there's a close-up of Lai bound to the office chair with duct tape across her mouth and the slit Frank made earlier is gone, so at first it's to be presumed that it's a new piece of tape. However, when Lai pokes her head out from the back seat of the car Frank stole, there is a slit in the tape, but when he pulls her and the chair out onto the road the slit's gone, only to return again when Frank brings her to his house.

Continuity mistake: When oil covered Frank breaks off the bike pedals, the pedal straps are thin and non-adjustable. As he slips his boots into them in the close-up, it has a wider adjustable clasp strap.

Continuity mistake: When Frank reverses down the auto transport trailer's ramp, the BMW's front right (viewer's left) foglight (located on bumper) breaks off. In following shots the foglight is intact.

Continuity mistake: When the Transporter jumps from the plane to the truck, the plane is a few feet above the truck. When he jumps it cuts to a shot form inside the plane, but you can see that they are now really high in the air. A split second later they are back to a few feet above the truck.

Continuity mistake: When Lai has to pee and runs off down the hill, we see Frank run after her and pick the duct tape (from her mouth) up off the ground. It is obviously covered in sticks and dirt when he finds it, only to be clean when he finds her and sticks it back on her mouth.

xx:xx:xx

Continuity mistake: In the beginning of the movie, near the end of that first getaway scene, the black BMW is missing its passenger side-door mirror. It reappears from time to time, depending on the shot. It is first missing the mirror as the car approaches that train yard/docks area.

xx:xx:xx

Continuity mistake: When Frank's revenge at Wall Street's home is near an end, as Lai rolls the office chair toward the door her legs are bound to the chair base, and her hands are tied behind her back (not to the chair). When Frank finds Lai in the car, now the rope is only tied around her ankles when he removes her (and if that were the case she had no reason to hide in the car with the chair in the first place).

Continuity mistake: The style of the seat and headrests in Frank's car repeatedly changes, from the time he awaits the first transport in the garage, through all the following shots. In the opening shot of the car's interior, the bottom of the headrests are sandwiched between the raised sides of the backrests. When Frank drives out of the garage the backrests do no not have raised sides and the headrests are rounder.

Continuity mistake: After Lai is slapped by her father, when they all leave Frank leaps onto the side of the trailer with the container load. The side he leaps onto has no distinctive characteristics, but when he jumps off now there is a short lower horizontal rail below the gap in the wall's surface ridges. (Fullscreen DVD)

Continuity mistake: As Lai is allowed to pee, she escapes. Frank gives chase, and she in her panic falls down the hill. Watching on DVD, you can see upskirt and note she was given flesh colored pantyhose. Before and after her tumble though, she is not wearing any.

xx:xx:xx

Continuity mistake: When Lai is taken out of the trunk she is wearing mid-heel, pointy toe pumps. During her escape attempt and when Frank lifts her over his shoulders she is wearing black soled, round toe flats, then changes back and forth a couple more times.

Continuity mistake: When Frank is shown removing his spare wheel from the trunk of the car, it appears to be a standard BMW alloy wheel (from a 740 series I believe). Then, when he is first lifting his car with the jack, the car has the standard BMW alloy wheel already installed on it, yet in the next shot where he removes the wheel, it is his own aftermarket wheel that he is removing. He is then shown installing the standard alloy wheel.

Continuity mistake: When Lai is talking to Frank and crying you see a close up of her face and her cheeks are very wet. They have a reaction shot of Frank and when the camera goes back to Lai her face is completely dry.

Add time

Continuity mistake: In the scene at the waterfront, Frank and a thug go out the window into the water. When Frank gets out of the water, we see his arm reaching up to pull himself out and his arm is completely dry. In the next shot, he is wet again.

xx:xx:xx

Continuity mistake: When the bank robbers shoot one of themselves, the blood splatters onto the back window. During the straight after that car chase the blood appears and dissapears from the back window.

Add time

Continuity mistake: The antenna/aerial mast located on the rear windshield/hood of Frank's BMW vanishes and reappears repeatedly. For instance, before the first shot of the two garbage collectors walking, in the closeup of the two AIC robbers in the back seat looking out through the back windshield (one screams) the antenna/aerial mast is gone.

Super Grover

Continuity mistake: When Frank jumps from the trailer with the container load he lands on the roof of a bus, passing under the overpass, whose number is 15 and has a large ad on its side, under the windows. When viewed from the front, the bus number is 21 and the ad has changed, though he hasn't changed busses.

Continuity mistake: As Frank is checking the containers, Lai is held captive and drinking tea when her father comes in. After he slaps her, the tea bag and cup fly across the table, but next shot they're near her hands.

xx:xx:xx

Continuity mistake: At the bus station, Jason Statham tips over a barrel of oil. You can see that the man who first slips on the oil has already got the oil all over his jacket before it could even have touched him.

Add time

Continuity mistake: In the bank robbery getaway scene at the start of the film, the Transporter tells the robbers to put their seat belts on, yet throughout the chase you can see them dissapear and reappear.

Add time

Continuity mistake: While transporting the three AIC robbers, when Frank drives backwards down the auto transport trailer, the driver side mirror breaks as it passes the trailer's side safety bar, but that mirror is intact again by the next shot.

Continuity mistake: When the inspector comes into Frank's house for coffee, Frank pours some milk into his cup. In the following shots the milk bottle is full again.

xx:xx:xx

Continuity mistake: When the blue police car pursues Frank, who is transporting the AIC robbers, as they pass pillars (between the two cars) a man rushes behind one of the pillars facing it, but next shot his back is up against the pillar. (Only visible in widescreen.)

Continuity mistake: When Inspector Tarconi is in Frank's kitchen eating Lai's Madeleine cookies, he's holding the cookie with his left hand in the close-up, but next shot it's in his right hand as he takes another bite.

xx:xx:xx

Super Grover

Continuity mistake: When Frank is being pursued by the blue police car, while transporting the three AIC robbers, the blue car's front license plate becomes lopsided to the right and then to the left, but when the car stops short at the traffic barrier the license plate is on properly.

xx:xx:xx

Super Grover

Continuity mistake: At the beginning of the film, Frank is visited by the police inspector. He has a visible though muted scab on his right temple. It was not there before this scene, and goes away afterward. The scenes were shot out of sequence. Later in the film during the fight on the bus/depot, he gets hit at the right temple and blood is drawn. Normally the blood would seem to just be there for effect, but due to the scab shown earlier in the film, he must have really been hit pretty good.

Continuity mistake: When the Transporter gets pistol whipped, he gets a big bump on his head. In the next scene in the jail cell, the position of it goes from the left, to the right, then back again.

Add time

Continuity mistake: During the first chase, when Frank is trapped between the police cars and garbage truck he screeches his tires for a long time. When he is flying off the bridge about to land on the car carrier transport, you see the rubber on his upper and lower left tires are completely gone, but when Frank lands all tires are good as new.

Add time

Continuity mistake: When Frank and Lai leave the police station, Lai jumps into the taxi, and as Frank walks up to it a man with long hair wearing a brown top is walking behind him, yet when Frank reaches the taxi, the man disappears.

Add time

Continuity mistake: When Frank takes Lai out of the trunk, she sits with her hands tied as she shakes the bag off her shoulder, and her pink top's spaghetti strap drops down below her white sleeve. Next shot the pink strap is on properly.

Continuity mistake: When Frank slits the duct tape on Lai's mouth, the position of the slit changes after the initial close-up.

Continuity mistake: In the garage fight scene, Frank slathers himself in motor oil to gain a slippery advantage over the mob of attackers. He escapes by diving through a window, plunging into the bay below. After a swim to safety, he is perfectly clean.

xx:xx:xx

Continuity mistake: In the scene with the 18-wheeler trucks, watch the highway in the background. Throughout the whole scene the traffic behind the trucks keeps dissapearing and reappearing.

Add time

Continuity mistake: When the plane with Frank in it swoops low over the convoy and then regains height, the convoy is seen to be at a particular point on the road. After Frank jumps out with the paraglider and catches up with the convoy, it is at the *exact same spot* on the road, despite having driven on in the intervening shot.

Add time

Continuity mistake: During the 1st chase when camera is showing how Frank's hand is shifting gears, there's one shot of the bank robber's hand getting hit with the gearstick while Frank is shifting. Next shot shows all bank robbers in the car with visible hands. No one is that quick to move his hands so fast.

xx:xx:xx

Continuity mistake: When Frank is on the way to the bank, he stops at an intersection and a couple of people cross. On the right side of his car (as on the screen), that part of the lane is empty. Then there is a shot of Frank inside the car and you can see cops in their patrol car next to him, while in previous shot there was nobody there.

xx:xx:xx

Continuity mistake: Frank has the fastest microwave in the world. It looked like he programmed his microwave for three minutes to cook noodles. Frank then talks to Lai for just over 30 seconds when the microwave beeps, indicating the time is up.
