Continuity mistake: When Selene slams on the brakes sending Lucian off the car, his arm blade disappears during his tumble, and reappears in the same shot once he stops. Viewed best in frame-by-frame. (00:29:05)

Continuity mistake: Right before the morphing shot of Michael's apartment building number, 510, we see Kraven enter and then leave the room through some double doors. As he enters, one of the doors is fully open and the other is half open. When he leaves they are both fully open.


Continuity mistake: During the fight scene between the two Lycans, it shows a shot of Taylor (short Lycan) receiving a cut across the left side of his chest, but when it shows him in his human form it is on his right. (00:10:50)

Continuity mistake: In the first scene when Rigel is crouching, taking pictures of the werewolves, he is holding the camera in his right hand just as he is about to jump down. However, when he is jumping, the camera angle changes and it can be seen that he is no longer holding a camera in his right hand. (00:02:10)

Continuity mistake: When Selene is chasing the Lycan in the subway and is surprised by him firing at her from behind her she turns around and gets down on her knees and fires back. When it cuts she gets down on her knees again. (00:08:25)

Underworld mistake picture

Continuity mistake: When Lucian goes flying over Selene's car, in the overhead shot we see that the road below him has large parts with visible concrete because there are no paving stones. But in the next shot, a close-up of Lucian landing on his feet, the road is fully paved with paving stones. (00:28:20)

Continuity mistake: When Michael grabs Adam's arm and Adam tells him to let go, Michael is holding Adam's arm close to his chest. When it cuts, Adam's arm has moved over to his shoulder. (00:42:30)


Continuity mistake: During the fight scene towards the end, Michael Corvin (now half lichen/half vampire) flies through the air from being hit. At this point Michael’s color is a translucent black/grey. As he flies through the air you can see that his feet are white. (02:00:35)

Continuity mistake: At the shooting range, Selene is shown firing a black USP without a compensator. It then cuts to an over the shoulder shot, and she is now firing a two-tone USP Match (which she supposedly receives from Kahn to test out a few seconds later). It then cuts to a frontal shot of her, and she is once again using the same black USP. She never stopped firing, so she couldn't have switched guns.

Visible crew/equipment: During the final battle, a vampire shoots into a totally dark room and kills a werewolf. He then lifts his gun and people are seen reflected in the sights. (01:37:05)
