Continuity mistake: In the office tower after the quake there is a panic and workers rush down the stairs only to find them fallen away. After two women fall to their death a man is left hanging on a girder, but falls onto a giant piece of glass. Look at the top of the frame and you will see the airbag shooting our from under it.
Continuity mistake: During the scene at the airport when the tower OK's the plane to land we can see it is a 707 with TWA-like colors of red and white. Then when there is the shot of the plane on the ground it turns into a DC-8 with orange markings. When the plane takes off into the air the camera shows the 707 again.Tobin OReilly
Continuity mistake: During the quake, a mother is seen having a plate glass window fall on her face while her daughter screams. Before the mother turns around to show us the gore, look close and you can see a shard of glass already "placed" in her face before the fake glass falls her. Additionally, while not a "mistake", it's clearly a "stuntman" portraying the mother. The face and yelping give it away.
Continuity mistake: When the aftershock hits L.A. and destroys Wilshire Plaza, the camera shows the destruction underground and at some point a brick pillar falls over. Instead of being made of brick it's really made out of wood with brick type wallpaper. You can tell this because if the pillar was really made of brick, when it fell over chunks of brick would at least break off. (01:38:20)Tobin OReilly
Continuity mistake: After the drunk faints, there's a wide shot of the dam. The number of people next to the railing differs between wide and close shots. Also the motorbike guy comes off the loop and crash lands, leaving the front wheel buckled, then he tries again and you see that the wheel is straight.Sacha
Continuity mistake: Miles is attempting to spin through a loop on his motorcycle. The first time he performs the stunt, he drives half way and falls out of the loop and lands on the ground. As soon as he and the bike land, the bike is positioned with the bike's wheels facing away from the loop. Miles is then helped up and the bike has suddenly shifted 180°, with the wheels now facing towards the loop.Casual Person
