Continuity mistake: In the scene where Eric kidnaps T-Bird and forces him to drive the hot-rod to the dock, Eric holds a large silver revolver up to T-Bird's head, then removes a black automatic from T-Bird's hand and drops it into the front floorboard. A few moments into the chase we see Eric holding the black automatic to the side of T-Bird's head, and the silver revolver is gone.
Continuity mistake: When Lee takes T-Bird in his car and the chase with the Police begins, the camera flashes to look at the chase through the eyes of the crow, the Police cars emergency lights are strobes, but when the camera reverts back to the chase scene they are the old style rotating flashers.
Revealing mistake: When Draven sends T-bird to his death in his car, the real Ford Thunderbird is replaced by a fake mockup using a flimsy one-piece fiberglass body mounted on a pair of straight axles. When it explodes, the body lifts off in one piece, warping wildly while the front axle simply falls away. No proper car components like engine, transmission, suspension and so on, are seen anywhere, though they should be. (00:57:05)johnrosa
Continuity mistake: Watch T Bird's facial scars, they change from small to big throughout the police chase.
Continuity mistake: When Funboy gets shot in the leg it hits his right, he is then shown clutching his bloody left leg and then his right when he is dragged into the bathroom. It goes back and forth like this. (00:38:20)
Continuity mistake: When Eric is about to leave Gideon, he points the shotgun at him, then holds it vertically. Just after he says "your job is to tell the rest of them..." we see a shot of Gideon, and the barrel of the shotgun is visible in the top left corner, pointing at him again. Back to Eric, and the shotgun's still vertical. (00:30:00)Jon Sandys
Continuity mistake: After Eric spreads petrol (or something ignitable), he leaves Gideon's Pawn Shop with the shotgun full of rings. When standing outside, he shoots the shotgun into the building. First of all, I doubt that even petrol could make such a big explosion. Secondly, if you watch closely, the top of the building seems to blow up before the bottom. (00:31:05)
Plot hole: Eric and Shelly were killed because they were trying to fight tenant eviction. Yet, a year later the building is seemingly abandoned. Eric and Shelly's stuff is even still there. So what were they killed for if nothing was ever done with the building?
Sarah: People once believed that when someone dies, a crow carries their soul to the Land of the Dead. But sometimes, something so bad happens that a terrible sadness is carried with it and the soul can not rest. Then sometimes, just sometimes, the crow can bring that soul back to put the wrong things right.
Trivia: When Eric first goes back to his apartment, right after he returns from the grave, it is raining inside the apartment and his movements look an awful lot like the movements he just made in the rainy alleyway. [Not really a mistake, but worth noticing - the filmmakers were forced to re-use some shots after Brandon Lee's death.]
