The Island

Deliberate mistake: Gandu Three Echo, the clone who hits the screen showing the first lottery winner in the movie, complains that he has been around for 7 years and never won the lottery. However, McCord explains later in the movie that the last name tells how old the clones are. Lincoln Six Echo is 3 years old because he is in the Echo generation, and the Delta generation (Jordan Two Delta) is 4 years old. Going backwards, this would make Charlies 5 years old, Bravos 6 years old, and Alphas 7 years old. Gandu Three Echo should have really been Gandu Three Alpha.

Visible crew/equipment: At the end of the freeway chase, when Laurent steps out of the passenger side of his car, a camera and several crew members are reflected in the door of an approaching vehicle.

Audio problem: When Lincoln 6 Echo is watching the the surgeons kill the other 'product' after giving birth, her heart monitor flat-lines well before the sound does. It beeps about 4 times before the shot changes to a closeup of the flat-line.

Visible crew/equipment: When Sean Bean puts the microbes into Ewan McGregor's eyes, the crew is reflected in his glasses.

Continuity mistake: When the mother is being poisoned shortly after giving birth, we see a toe tag on her right big toe; in the next shot, the toe tag has moved to her left foot.

Factual error: When the first train wheel hits the ground in the close up, you can see that it isn't made of steel as it deforms as if it were foam. And there is also no damage to the concrete road whatsoever, since the wheels are made of steel there should have been quite a big hole.

Continuity mistake: When Tom and Six-Echo are in the car near the end, the chopper shoots down the traffic lights in front of them. When Six Echo drives off again, he drives straight with no problems.

Continuity mistake: When the clones are in Lincoln's house he takes a drink. When he picks up the bottle, we see the label, but when starts to drink, the label isn't visible anymore and the time is too short to turn it.

Continuity mistake: When they are driving behind the truck, a flat piece of metal falls off. Shortly before it hits the car it is "flying" horizontal (20°) however in the next shot, when it hits the car it is suddenly vertical (90°). No time between the two shots for that immense change.

Visible crew/equipment: When Tom Lincoln runs up the stairs to get his shoes and opens the door to his room, you can see a cameraman reflected in the glass.

Continuity mistake: In the scene with the accelerating fan, there is a shot of the speed dial going towards the maximum. It then cuts to the fan speeding up. When it returns to the dial, the needle traverses the exact same distance that it did before.

Continuity mistake: When the row of train wheels is first shown rolling off the back of the truck, it has a flat sheet of metal on top of it. In the next shot, the sheet is gone. And in the next shot (when the wheels hit the road), it's back.

Continuity mistake: As Lincoln and Jordan are escaping they enter a room and we then see the guards coming down a set of stairs. You then hear Jordan shout at Lincoln. As the camera cuts back, we see the same guard run down the same set of stairs again.

Scrappy

Continuity mistake: Towards the beginning of the film, when Lincoln and Jordan first escape, we see them running and hiding in the room full of new 'products'. Water is constantly falling from the ceiling like rain, and both of them are soaked, to the point of water running from their hair and clothing in streams. In the next shot, however, when they have just left the room, they are little more than damp.

STP

Continuity mistake: When Lincoln-clone enters the elevator, we see the short older clone has his shoulder in front of Lincoln's. The doors close and the camera switches to an overhead angle and we see Lincoln's shoulder is now in front.

Visible crew/equipment: When the first train wheel falls down you can see a cord attached to it, in the next shot the cord is gone.

Continuity mistake: Two members of Laurent's team are in the elevator going up to the 70th floor of a rather tall Gas Company Tower in LA (the building with the giant "R" logo; presumably the building's height has been raised) to go after Lincoln and Jordan. When they step out of the elevator, the display inside says "70," but the floor number outside the elevator says "L," indicating that they're actually on the lobby floor.

Continuity mistake: The first train wheel which falls down from the truck hits the ground twice.

Continuity mistake: When Mac, Lincoln and Jordan are driving to the railway station. Mac takes the credit card out of Jordan's hands, however in the next shot, Lincoln is already holding it.

Revealing mistake: During the car chase with the railway train wheels, when some of the cars get destroyed and flipped, you can see flame and smoke from the bottoms of the flipped cars where the cannons fired to flip them.

Continuity mistake: When Jordan and Lincoln are at Mac's house, right after they escape, the lava in the lava lamp changes shape and location drastically between shots. (The lava changes much more than would be possible in that short amount of time).

Continuity mistake: When Lincoln and Jordan are running to the Zone 6 door during their escape Lincoln throws a person into Jordan knocking her down. However in the next scene she is miraculously right behind Lincoln again.

Fightergirlpan

Factual error: When Lincoln Six Echo escapes in Tom's car, he starts the engine using his fingerprint, which turns out to be identical to Tom's, since he's Tom's clone. Actually, fingerprints are formed in the womb and take shape mostly due to environmental conditions inside. They are not genetically defined or inherited, so Lincoln's prints should be completely different.

Other mistake: Gandu 3 Echo has initials on his sleeve which read G3A. This would be fine if he was Gandu 3 Alpha, but he's not (although he should be - see the other entry relating to him). It should read G3E.

Continuity mistake: The Black Wasp shoots out the truck's right front tire, but the subsequent shots show the truck's left front tire blowing out and the right tire intact.

Continuity mistake: When Jordan and Lincoln arrive at Tom's place the door opens different directions between shots.

Other mistake: Starkweather Two Delta, the guy that wins the lottery in the first elevator scene, tells us he was there for 6 months. Which should have put him in the "G" (Gamma) or "J" (Juno) series instead of the Delta series.

Add time

Revealing mistake: During the truck chase and the train wheels being offloaded into the path of the pursuing cars, on the car that gets hit after the hummer we can see the metal canister used to roll the car.

Continuity mistake: When Lincoln Six Echo goes to the lab as Tom Lincoln on the chopper the scars on his face swaps side.

Continuity mistake: When Lincoln 6 Echo goes into the facility, he is wearing a blue shirt. When he comes out again, it's purple.

Friso94

Continuity mistake: When the police car stops on the middle of the four way junction, the first shot shows cars parked or waiting in all three lanes, but in the shot where they get broadsided, the armoured van is suddenly coming from the lane which previoulsy had a silver sportscar in it.

Deliberate mistake: The shot of Jordan and Lincoln asleep in the ruin is flipped. You can tell by Lincoln's initials on his ankle.

Continuity mistake: When Lincoln and Jordan board the trailer with the train axles, both mudflaps of the trailer are branded Manac (Also has a sticker with the brand on the trailer) and are black with white fontAs the axles start to fall off, the mudflaps become Mack brand and are white with black font.

Add time

Other mistake: When Lincoln and Jordan first enter the city, just before Jordan sees a poster of herself, in the background you can see two trains high in the air, with a skyscraper behind them. If you look carefully at the shadows cast by the two trains, one of them is completely wrong. The train that goes from left to right has its shadow trailing on its left side, and the train going from right to left has its shadow trailing on its right side. Irrespective of which direction the two trains are travelling, both their shadows should be trailing from the same side, as there is only one light source, i.e. the sun.
