Batman Begins

Continuity mistake: When the thug attacks Bruce in the beginning of the movie, the man grabs his hair, yanking it straight up. In the next shot, he's suddenly yanking it sideways. His action is shown in real time, visible on screen at all times, and therefore can't be corrected by saying it only takes a fraction of a second to move his hand.

Continuity mistake: During the first board meeting at Wayne Enterprises, there's a woman sitting on Frederick's left. As he says, "I don't think Thomas Wayne would have viewed heavy-arms manufacture as a suitable cornerstone for our business", in the wide shot, their chairs are about half a metre apart, but in the close-up, the chairs are much closer to each other.

Continuity mistake: The woman that shoots Joe Chill pushes the gun all the way against his chest. In the next shot, the gun is at least a foot away from his chest. The scene is shown in real time, and no one moves that quickly. (00:24:40)

Continuity mistake: When Bruce is thrown off the truck when released from prison, you can see his bag in the background as he rolls at least 5 feet away to his right. When the angle changes and he's getting up, the bag is right in front of him, if not slightly to his left. (00:05:50)
