The Crow

Continuity mistake: Eric smashes the door to Gideon's Pawn Shop and stays outside. The shot shows Gideon on the floor then Eric about 6 foot inside the door. Not enough time has passed for him to get that far. (00:26:00)

Other mistake: When the girl is kidnapped and Eric goes to save her, he enters a big door of that Gothic cathedral (as depicted on the movie cover). At that moment, the wind blows. But for the scene to make any sense, the wind should blow from the outside in, not from the inside of the church out, but the motion of Eric's hair shows the wind blowing the wrong way. (01:05:55)

Continuity mistake: The can Albrecht drops on the floor when Eric visits moves places without anyone touching it. When Eric says about the hat still being on it's on the wooden flooring. When he walks past to read the file a few minutes later the can is on the carpet. (00:43:25)

Continuity mistake: Top Dollar shows a snow globe to a female companion near the start. Her grip on the snow globe changes instantly. In some shots she has her fingers on the glass and not in others. (00:23:35)

Continuity mistake: When Sarah is skateboarding, and the guy in the car yells at her to get out of the road, she pushes with her right foot and has her left foot in front (a "Regular" stance), but in the next shot she is riding "goofy" stance (right foot front), with no time to change stances. (00:24:25)

Continuity mistake: Officer Albrecht gets out his car and takes aim at Eric from behind the car door. The camera changes and Albrecht is walking forward without closing the car door or going round it. (00:30:50)

Continuity mistake: When Gideon is in the bar, he takes the top off the bottle just as the other bloke grabs it. The second bloke then proceeds to take the top off the bottle again. (00:41:35)

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.]
