Kill Bill: Volume 1 mistake picture

Continuity mistake: When The Bride and Vernita Green are in the kitchen, Vernita mentions something like "I've got to fix my daughter's cereal." Notice when she says this, The Bride is holding her mug with the handle facing Vernita, when the shot changes, it is instantly facing The Bride - something which cannot be achieved this quickly.

Factual error: In the beginning of the anime sequence we see O-Ren's father from behind, along with his Army rank on his left shoulder. The rank in the movie has two chevrons on top (the upside down "V"s), three "rockers" on the bottom (the bowl shapes) and a star in the middle. The real Army rank of Sergeant Major has three chevrons on top - no rank except corporal has only two chevrons, and corporals have no rockers or other insignia. (00:35:15)

Factual error: When lying in the hospital, The Bride's heartbeat (the "beep") doesn't match 69 (per minute) which is on the monitor and also doesn't match the visible flow in the artery in her neck (a few seconds later). (00:24:50)

Factual error: Near the end of the anime sequence when O-Ren murders the crime boss, there's a shot of the wall/ceiling behind her as she pulls the sword out of his stomach and you see the outline of O-Ren in the blood on the wall. In the next shot of O-Ren's face and body she only has minimal amounts of blood on her. Considering there was enough blood spraying out that you can see her outline on the wall behind her, shouldn't the front of her be covered in the blood as well? (00:40:05)

Continuity mistake: In the anime sequence after O-Ren Ishii has drawn the sword out of Boss Matsumoto, the blood is splashing out of him, and up on her face. But the amount of blood on her face keeps changing. (00:40:00)


Continuity mistake: When Hanzo hands over the sword to The Bride we can see all of her hair is hanging down on her back. When it cuts a huge lump of her fringe hangs in front of her. (00:55:55)

Continuity mistake: The Bride's face gets beaten up with visible marks during the fight with O-Ren's last female fighter. But after the fight her face is back to how it looked before the fight.

Continuity mistake: The Bride raises her sword twice at the beginning of the fight with Gogo. (01:14:55)

Continuity mistake: After O-Ren chops off Tanaka's head at the Yakuza boss meeting, the position of her hand holding the sword changes. At first she is holding it with an overhand grip, then when the blood shower from Tanaka's neck ends, she lowers the sword and is gripping it underhand. (01:01:30)

Continuity mistake: When The Bride is fighting the Crazy 88s, right after it changes from black/white screen to color again, they fight in a room where the light gets shut off. Now watch close, they wait. They fight. She hits a few members of the gang. Watch the gangster in the lower left corner of your screen. He's gone. He rolls away to the left. They start fighting again. Keep paying attention to the lower left corner. You see him roll away again a few seconds later. (01:27:25)

Continuity mistake: Tanaka's severed head lands on the table and stops rolling, meaning it should stop moving. However, it then falls off the table.


Continuity mistake: In the Crazy 88 fight, when The Bride stabs a bald Crazy 88 member, at first the sword is to the left of his tie, but when we see a closeup, it's to the right of it.
