Corrected entry: When the Nautilus leaves London, before it goes under water, the actors are all standing on deck. In the shot where Mrs Harker is talking to Dorian there are chairs on deck (which is quite remarkable for a submarine). When everybody goes inside because the submarine is about to dive, the chairs are gone. (00:39:00 - 00:40:25)
Corrected entry: At one point in movie Nemo and Quatermain meet in front of Allan's cabin and Nemo informs him that food has been served. This scene was invented by Sean Connery and Nasserudin Shah. They always considered each other the greatest of rivals in the world of movie industry, since Connery is an icon of Western cinema, while Shah is one of the greatest icons of Indian cinema. They spend 10-15 second looking each other directly in the eyes, which is the way Indians normally show respect to other people.mirtom
Corrected entry: When Quatermain gains his first-hand experience with the Phantom men's automatic weapons, he calls them "automatic rifles". The first weapon using this term was the Browning BAR 1918, which saw use in World War I 19 years later. The only automatic weapons used in 1899 were machine guns like the Maxim (which was in the Victorian era used in the British army), so Quatermain should have dubbed these weapons something like "machine guns" or "machine rifles" instead of "automatic rifles".
Corrected entry: When Mina starts her final fight with Dorian, she jumps right over him, plunging her dagger into his back, and Dorian rips it out. But the mistake here is that the dagger is buried high in his back, between the shoulder blades - a position where it could not be easily reached, especially if you reach for it under the armpit. Also, unless Dorian has unusually long and flexible arms, he would only be able to get the dagger by its blade, not by the handle.
Corrected entry: There is absolutely no way that a ship the size of the Nautilus could navigate the Thames, as it does. From the hull to the top of the sail it is too tall to fit under any one of the many bridges that were on the Thames at the time without running aground, quite apart from the fact that there is no part of the Thames in London deep enough for such a huge vessel to be wholly submerged.
Corrected entry: At Dorian's home you see the Fantom's men turn from behind bookcases, some have normal machine guns, some have long silencer looking things on the barrels. Why have silencers when the others have normal ones?
Corrected entry: To see this mistake, you'll have to download one of the trailers or teasers and go frame per frame. When the grotesque muscled guy charges to Hyde, he swings his arm in order to hit him, yet Hyde is flying away even before he got hit. CGI mistake?
Corrected entry: In 'M's summer retreat', when Hyde picks up the door to shield himself against the bullets, you can see bullet holes in the door as he picks it up, before it's even close to the path of the bullets.
Corrected entry: When Dorian is shot by the automatic rifle, he just stands there and takes it without so much as screaming in pain. Later in the film, when Mina and Dorian are fighting, she stabs him in his crotch and Dorian groans in pain.
Corrected entry: Mina should not be a vampire. People only become vampires when they die as a result of having their blood drained as a vampire. Mina survived the events of Bram Stoker's book.
Corrected entry: In the scene at Dorian's home when the Phantom's gunmen appear on the balcony, Agent Sawyer is supposed to appear about five minutes later. However, if you look very closely Sawyer arrives and points his gun at the same time as the others. He is visible as he has a white shirt on. (00:23:20)
Corrected entry: When the Germans break into the bank, one of them speaks, and the subtitle says, 'Leave one alive to tell the tale.' What the speaker actually said (in German) was, 'kill all but one.' (00:03:25)
Corrected entry: Mina is a vampire, so why is she checking her reflection in a pocket mirror, in Gray library. When we all know vampires cast no reflection in mirrors.
Corrected entry: M tricks the League into forming so he can steal their special attributes from them, but while most of the League joined by choice, the film makes it clear that the invisible man was taken by force (eventually agreeing to stay because they promised him a cure). Why didn't M just take skin from him when he was captured? (00:18:00 - 01:08:15)Reservoir Dog
Corrected entry: In the scene on deck of the Nautilus where Quatermain and Sawyer practice shooting the Nautilus is lying still in the water when the camera is on deck, but visibly speeding along when seen from the point where the target balls land in the water. This happens in alternating shots. (00:42:25)NancyFelix
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)
