Hellboy
Hellboy mistake picture

Continuity mistake: When Hellboy is walking at one point, holding his gun up in his left, gloved hand (just after one of the agents has said "This place is like swiss cheese"), watch the frame. It switches suddenly so his right hand (the stone one) is his left, and he's holding the gun in his "right." (00:59:40)

Continuity mistake: Hellboy tosses Dr. Manning through the quickly-closing door to escape the pendulum on the bridge - he barely makes it under. Hellboy then spends thirty seconds dodging the pendulum, but when he dives for the door it's still closing at the same point and speed - just enough for him to pass. (01:30:55)

Phoenix

Continuity mistake: Hellboy's oversized "Samaritan" revolver is shown to only hold 4 rounds. Yet he fires more than 4 times without stopping to reload during his fight with the first Sammael creature in the museum. (00:29:50)

Continuity mistake: After Hellboy falls on the dumpster and sees Rasputin walking toward him, there is a smear of blood on HB's lower lip. It cuts away for a second to show him pick up his gun, and when you see Hellboy again, the blood is gone.

Continuity mistake: In director's cut dvd edition, toward the end of the movie, when Hellboy hits Kroenen in a head, and says, "You killed my father, your ass is mine," Kroenen's left side of a mask changes from being damaged to intact, than damaged again from different angles. (01:43:20)

Continuity mistake: At the end when Hellboy is carrying Liz off the altar she hasn't got a top on. Later after Hellboy kills the behemoth she has got a top on.

Continuity mistake: In the truck on the way to the library, Abe rises and says, "Outside...with her," and gestures. In the next shot, he's hunched over. (00:25:50)

Phoenix

Continuity mistake: At the end of the movie, when Rasputin is about to take away Liz's soul, the shot is over Rasputin's shoulder with Hellboy's front in view. We can see Rasputin's hand move from above Liz's chest to her jaw as he bends over. Then the shot changes to Rasputin's front. In this shot, the hand is back above Liz's chest and is moving to her jaw again.

Continuity mistake: When Kroenen slices the statue, the cut where the reliquary splits in half isn't close to any of his hits; his hits are toward the upper half of the statue.

Continuity mistake: At the beginning when Broom is bandaging his wound, a soldier asks him about Hell. Broom turns to look at him, but in the next shot is facing forward again. (00:10:25)

Continuity mistake: When Professor Broom is feeding that thing in the tank rotten eggs, you see him pick up one egg and put it in the tube. When he pushes the tube up in the next shot, you see more than one egg in the tube. (00:20:00)

Continuity mistake: Kroenen kills the two museum guards on the balcony and they flip as they fall. The shot on Kroenen shows both landing facing up (use slowmo to see ties) and they bounce with their toes pointing up. In the next shot showing Kroenen and the other guards, the dead guards are facing down. (00:41:35)

Phoenix

Continuity mistake: On their date Myers tells Liz that Hellboy loves her. She looks up into his face, but in the next shot she's looking down again. (01:11:20)

Phoenix

Continuity mistake: After Liz arrives at BPRD, Myers gives Hellboy chili and tells him that nachos are on the way. A dark cat is walking up to Hellboy's left side on the bed. In the next shot, the cat in that place is black-and-white and facing away from the camera. (01:08:35)

Phoenix

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Hellboy and his group arrive at Graveyard 16, a shot from farther away shows the graveyard in the background and in the foreground are the 3 vehicles in which they drove up. The two smaller vehicle's roof, hood and windshield are already covered in what looks like about 1 cm of snow, although they just arrived. Such light and dry snow that appears to be falling in the scene would have been blown off the car while driving, and a layer that thick takes a lot longer to develop.

Continuity mistake: In the final scene between Hellboy and Liz, when he is telling her what he said to bring back her soul, the shots change several times between one of her face, and the back of Hellboy's head, and vice versa. Every time we see Liz's face, she is looking up into Hellboy's face, but when we see the back of her head on the interspersed shots, her head is not inclined upwards at all.

Continuity mistake: At the end of the movie, when Hellboy and Liz are talking and Hellboy says, "Hey, you on the other side, let her go...", he raises his head and their heads are close to each other. When it cuts, their heads have moved further away from each other. (01:52:30)

Mortug

Continuity mistake: When Kronen cuts open the statue in the museum, he in only holding one of his swords. The guards come rushing in and Ilsa says, "get them." Kronen turns and is now holding both of his swords.

Mark Bernhard

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Abe Sapien is investigating the cistern for Sammael's eggs, the cord holding the reliquary Hellboy gave him is cut and it falls out of reach. A few shots later, when Abe is frantically swimming away from Sammael, the charm can be seen still attached to his right-hand wrist, following his movements as if still attached to him. (01:01:30 - 01:02:30)

Continuity mistake: When Liz goes to tell Hellboy that she is going out with Myers, her arms change from at her stomach and shoulder to at her sides between a shot from behind and the next front shot. (01:09:00)

Trivia: The BPRD complex was (according to Del Toro) was originally FDR's secret emergency bunker. The library where Professor Broom dies was the president's office and Hellboy's room (with the big vault door) was his fallout shelter, just in case Germany perfected the A-bomb first.
