Corrected entry: Sean Bean's character is killed by being shot at close range as he sits, but in the morgue his head and torso are untouched. There appears to be a mark in on his neck in the morgue, suggesting that's where the bullet hit, but it's a trick of the light - a clearer shot shows his neck unmarked.
Corrected entry: In the scene where Preston is about to enter the room, he orders that they blow the bolts to the door with the Shotguns. However the scene where they do this is repeated.
Corrected entry: This is a mistake between the audio and the subtitles: When Preston is discussing killing Father with the other members of the Resistance he asks them about war and cruelty. Jurgen says that they've been 'Replaced by the Tetragrammaton' but the subtitles show the line as 'Replaced by a touch of Grammaton'.
Corrected entry: In the society of Libria, all form of emotion is supposed to be outlawed and with it all objects that can provoke it. Yet Preston's daughter is shown eating chocolate cereal. Chocolate stimulates the release of endorphines into the brain, generating a feeling similar to being in love. Shouldn't it hence be outlawed?
Corrected entry: Do you remember when Preston finds the room with the snow globe? The music plays and he crys. You should also remember that the room was very dark and he had to light the lamp to see...but how did he find this room? He saw bright white light shining through a bullet hole in the wall.
Corrected entry: Early in the film, when the woman reaches across the table to grab the vial from Preston's hand, the actors need to lean-in, where later on, when she finds out that Preston is a sense offender, the two relaxingly touch hands in the center of the table. Did the table shrink?
Corrected entry: When John Preston is fighting the guards in the corridor and does his spectacular over-the-head pick up of the gun at the end, there is a shot of the guards in front of the door getting shot and the one on the right is standing still for far too long in comparison with the other shots. That same shot also shows them both falling to the side when in actual fact, they stumble backwards into the door. (01:30:27)
Corrected entry: The puppy that Cleric Preston rescued is sitting in the trunk of his car when he starts his nighttime gunfight with the sweeper team. After he has finished decimating them, he looks down by his feet and picks the dog up. That's a pretty brave puppy, to leap out of a trunk during a pitched gun battle and wander into the midst of all the attackers.Phil C.
Corrected entry: This is a pretty huge plot hole. We are shown Preston switching guns with Brandt in the rebel execution scene. At the end of the film, when they check the computer to see which gun was used when Preston killed the police squad, it comes up as Brandt's. Problem is, the switch happens long after the scene with the police squad. Furthermore, only one gun was switched. Even if the logic worked, Preston would have been using one of Brandt's guns and one of his own.
Corrected entry: In the movie it seems everyone in the government, even young boys in training, are constantly on the lookout for behaviour indicating sense crimes. For instance Cleric Preston is put on alert by the inflection his first partner gives a couple of words. Yet throughout the film Father and Taye Diggs exhibit fairly normal, human emotions, including angry outbursts without anyone taking notice.
Corrected entry: In the final part of the movie, the hero kills one of the bad guy using the scabbard of the sword.
Corrected entry: During the final battle scene Christian Bale is seen to spin round a few times holding a large sword and slashing the four or five guards round him to pieces. As he does this we see his nice white tux/toga sprayed right across its middle with nice bright red blood. yet after he has finished chopping everyone up he still has a lovely clean top.
Corrected entry: At the end of the movie, when Preston enters the father's room, he first checks for the presence of guards before proceeding. But after a few steps, guards appear from behind every room's column. Given Preston's starting position, it would have been impossible for him to not spot the two guards hidden behind the two columns flanking the door, as both of them were hiding on the same side as Preston himself. Otherwise, they would have been visible to the viewer, given the fact that the camera angle is facing Preston. In other words, it is impossible for those two guards to be hiding both from Preston and from the viewer's point of view.Epigenis
