Deliberate mistake: When the police officer is being ran over the tank you see him falling backwards. When it cuts we see his hat being ran over by the tank. However the way the officer was falling there is no way his hat could have landed under the tank's belt as it does in the next shot. (00:01:55)Mortug
Factual error: In the first few scenes they show some newspapers. They show Tuesday April 10, 1899, then Thursday May 18th,1899. If April 10th is on a Tuesday, then May 18th can't be on a Thursday, it would be on a Friday. April 10, 1899 was actually a Monday, but May 18th that year was indeed a Thursday. (00:03:45 - 00:04:55)
Factual error: When the League arrives in Venice, Carnivale is being celebrated. In the film they leave London in July and arrive there a few days later, but in Venice, Carnivale is celebrated on the last weekend before Lent - which differs from year to year, roughly between early February and early March.

Continuity mistake: When Quatermain arrives in London, he is greeted by Reed who leads him down some stairs. In the shot where they're going down some spiral stairs, for some reason you see a different actor (who is clean shaven) posing as Reed, going down the stairs holding the umbrella in his right hand. Then in the next shot you see the "original" actor who has a slight goatee and is holding the umbrella in his left hand. (00:13:25)
Continuity mistake: In the scene where Quatermain first meets M, they're in a library with a long table in the middle. When Quatermain sits down in the chair, a folder magically appears which wasn't there before in the other shots. (00:14:15 - 00:15:15)
Continuity mistake: The invisible man is seen in one shot with cream covering the majority of the front of his face but it ends towards the middle of his head. When he is in the automobile, the cream is now completely covering his head and neck. Then, when they go to see Dorian Gray, only his face is covered with make-up again. (00:17:50 - 00:22:35)MCKD
Continuity mistake: When The Phantom tells Quatermain to drop his gun, Quatermain drops it. It cuts and we see the gun landing with the handle pointing out. The way Quatermain dropped the gun the handle should be pointing in. The gun could not have changed angle that quickly when watched how it is dropped. (00:24:00)Mortug
Continuity mistake: When the League are at Gray's home and the Phantom interrupts, he tells Quatermain to put the gun down. The gun starts falling pointed to the right but a close up shows it landing pointed to the left, but it never flipped. (00:24:00)
