Deep Blue Sea

Continuity mistake: When the shark is brought up to put the needle in his head he bites off the guys arm leaving only a bit left there, yet when they are wheeling him to the helicopter you see that he's got more arm than before. (00:33:50 - 00:35:25)

Continuity mistake: Towards the end of the movie, the Preacher stabs the shark in his left eye with his cross, causing it to bleed. Later, in the next scene when shark returns to eat Susan, its eye is intact. (01:28:10 - 01:32:45)

Continuity mistake: Near the end scene, when the three characters came to the surface, L.L. Cool J. was taken by the shark. When he was taken underwater and when he surfaced, the shark had him in her mouth on the right side. When they went under again and resurfaced, L.L.Cool J. was on the left of the shark's mouth. What? Did the shark not like him on the right side so she switched him underwater? (01:27:30)

Continuity mistake: The man with the cross has a wound on the left hand side of his head. Later in the movie it has moved down.

Continuity mistake: When LL Cool J is standing on the shelf and reaching for his bird on the pot, it is clear that he could easily reach the pot if he clenched his fingers. Yet, in the next clip, the pot is shown from a different angle and is at least 1 or 2 feet away. (00:53:55)

Continuity mistake: While Carter is trying to save Jan he is a few feet above the water. But in a shot from above you can see that he has to bend his body so as not to touch the surface. It would be very easy for him to reach her, then! But in the next shot, he's high above the water again. (01:06:25)

Continuity mistake: When Carter is sitting in front of one of the small hatch-like doors around the time that they were climbing the ladder to escape from the rising water, one can clearly sea that the door is no more than twice the width of Carter (4 feet at most) yet the 45 foot shark about 10 to 12 feet wide seems to have no trouble squeezing through. (01:01:40 - 01:04:20)

Continuity mistake: When Carter climbs the ladder to get out of the water after removing the licence plate from the shark's mouth, it shows a shot of his feet and he is wearing sandals. In the tank he was wearing swim fins. He talks to the big boss for a few seconds and the fins are nowhere to be seen. He then walks away with the fins in his hand. (00:08:55 - 00:10:20)

Continuity mistake: When the shark rises above water with Jan partially in its mouth, its teeth are in about the level of her waist. As Carter grabs onto Jan, it moves its teeth up to the top of her chest. In the wide shot that follows, though, its teeth are back at her waist, then in the last shot of her being pulled underwater, they are up way higher again, at her chest.

Continuity mistake: Carter pries open a door with a knife that is on as sheath on his leg. The knife breaks and he throws it away. In the final scene, when Carter and Preacher are laying on the wreckage, the knife is clearly visibly back in the sheath on Carter's right leg. (01:05:00 - 01:37:45)

Continuity mistake: When Preacher, Susan and Carter realise the only way out of Aquatica is to swim and they start filling the room up with water, Preacher holds out his hands to Susan and Carter. Carter then holds his hand out flat for Susan to take, and she puts her hand on top of his. However, in the next shot Susan's hand is on top and Carter's is underneath. (01:25:25)

Continuity mistake: Near the end when the survivors has reached the surface and LL Cool J gets attacked by a shark. Notice all the blood in the water. Shortly after, when he is pulled up and rescued, you see no blood at all. (01:28:20)

Continuity mistake: In a scene near the end of the movie, Carter is swimming back to the wet lab through flooded passageways. At the beginning of the swim, his left shoe is completely untied - you can see both laces floating. In the next full body shot (where his shoes show) the shoe is tied again. (01:13:30)

Continuity mistake: When Preacher is talking to the Lord about his wrath, he is in a wide area of the corridor with "Sub Level 1-A" written on the wall behind him. In the next shot he is approaching the wide area with the sign again. (00:42:30)

Continuity mistake: When Carter and Scoggins are under water at the panel you can see light on Scoggins face when the camera is focusing on him. However when it cuts to Carter he is pointing his flashlight away from Scoggins. This happens twice during the shots. (01:13:45)

Continuity mistake: Even though the shark just jumped out of the water and ate the bird, the water is still when the preacher is falling into it. A big shark should make some waves in the water. (00:51:55)

Continuity mistake: At the end, Carter manages to hold onto the perimeter fence, and the shark goes through. The shark then explodes, and Carter is seen being blown off the fence back the way he came, yet when he surfaces, he's now on the other side of the fence.

Continuity mistake: When the parrot lands on the casserole you see a bottle and some other items floating around it. When it cuts none of the items can be seen around the casserole. (00:51:30)

Continuity mistake: When Blake and Dr Susan McAlester (Saffron Burrows) emerge to survey the damaged research facility, you can clearly see coastline in the background, although earlier in the movie we see a weather map showing the facility clearly way out in the the ocean. (00:23:25 - 01:29:20)

Continuity mistake: At the beginning, when Dr. McCallister is getting off the helicopter, she is wearing trousers, but when she is talking to Franklin, she is wearing a dress. (00:12:45)

Quotes

Russell Franklin: Just what the hell did you do to those sharks?
Dr. Susan McCallister: Their brains weren't large enough to harvest sufficient amounts of the protein complex. So we violated the Harvard Compact. Jim and I used gene therapies to increase their brain mass, a larger brain means more protein. As a side effect the sharks got smarter.
Janice Higgins: You stupid bitch!

Mistakes

When the sharks first attack and bite off the man's arm - you can clearly see his arm under his shirt as he's scrambling away from the water.

Trivia

In both Jaws and Deep Blue Sea there is a scene involving a license plate. In Jaws it is removed from the belly of the dead tiger shark. In Deep Blue Sea it is removed from the teeth of a tiger shark. Not only are both sharks the same but both plates are from Louisiana. The license plate number is the same in both films: 007 o 981 Exp 72-73.
