Continuity mistake: Toward the end of the film, Claire confronts Tom about the witnesses' killing, and they begin to fight. Claire smashes a glass on the side of Tom's head, then runs outside. In the next shot, as Tom follows her, he does not have a single cut or drop of blood on him, anywhere.Lisa 176
Continuity mistake: 32 or 33 minutes into the film, Ashley Judd and Morgan Freeman step out of the military court. Morgan Freeman is messing with his collar with his right hand. The shot changes and both his hands are free. The shot changes again and now we see him already messing with his collar with his left hand. It's not a normal movement or the continuity of the same movement.
Continuity mistake: When Ashley Judd has gone to a junkyard with the man who attacked her, they get out of the car. At one point, she reaches for her purse. The man grabs her and pulls her close to his body. She is looking to her right, over the man's left shoulder. In the next shot, the man is facing the camera and Ashley Judd's head is facing the other direction - over the man's right shoulder and to her left. In the next shot, she is again looking to her right and his left. (01:15:39)
Continuity mistake: Through the film it is stated more than once that there were 7 witnesses and 5 of them are dead. But in the courtroom scene where Morgan Freeman is questioning the circumstances of their death he says that 2 died in combat, 3 had an accident and 1 was shot during a robbery, a total of 6 dead and if you add Hernandez and Abbot, the two who survived, you come to a total of 8, not 7.
Continuity mistake: When Ashley Judd and Jim Caviezel are coming home from court when he gets released, they are riding in the back of Lt. Embry's 4 Runner. The passenger seat headrest has been taken out to provide the shot of their faces. In the next scene, when they are getting into Jackie's car, you can see through the windows of the 4 Runner and the headrest is back in place. (01:34:15)
