Red Eye

Continuity mistake: The plane they are on changes several times throughout the movie. When it is sitting at the gate in Dallas, and while being pushed back from the gate, it is a Boeing 737. When it is shown taxiing out, it is an Airbus A320. Air to air shots are of a Boeing 767, which is also the same as the interior shots all throughout the movie. The 737 and A320 are narrowbodies, while the 767 is a widebody, commonly configured 2-4-2 like the interior in the movie.

Continuity mistake: When Lisa is on board the plane, she is wearing stiletto heels (best seen when she is collapsing in the bathroom). However, when she is running through the airport, she is wearing flat shoes. This is most easily seen when she comes of the transporter belt, when she trips and one of her feet swings into the air. Later, when she kicks Jack on the stairs of her house, she is wearing stiletto heels again.


Continuity mistake: When Lisa and Jackson are having their first conversation while waiting in line at the airport, a strand of her hair gets caught in her mouth. When the camera changes angles, the hair is no longer in her mouth.

Continuity mistake: After Lisa pretends to be reading a magazine to avoid the security guards who're looking for her near her gate, she spots Jackson and you can see two men sitting at a table eating lunch in the foreground of the shot. When Jackson sees her and starts running after her, both the table and the men are gone (Jackson runs through the place they used to be). (00:56:45)

Continuity mistake: The ka-bar knife Jack takes from his dead associate, goes from having a dull, black blade (best seen when he tries to pry the door open with it), to a regular, shiny steel one.

Continuity mistake: When Lisa is changing her top in the bathroom you see the cut on her chest and it is red almost as if it was only recently done or had been bleeding. Later in the film when Jackson is in the bathroom and he sees the scar it is healed up and there is now a fully healed scar. There are two problems, firstly the cut could not have healed in the few hours between when we see it. The second is that the cut we see at the beginning was said to have been caused two years prior. Therefore how could the cut be that fresh? (00:10:10 - 00:41:55)

Continuity mistake: After Lisa manages to steal a car away from the couple at the airport, we see her try to make calls from Ripner's cell phone. After the cell phone blinks "Low Battery" for the first time, we can see that she is wearing a seat belt. Lisa then swerves to miss an oncoming car, and we see her hastily fasten her seat belt, as if it was never fastened before. (00:58:55)

Continuity mistake: When Cynthia serves the snooty customers, there is a little window on the computer screen which appear/disappears/etc.

Continuity mistake: When Lisa stabs the pen into Jack's neck, she stabs him in the side of his neck, however, when they show the pen and from then on, it's in the middle of his neck. (00:53:55)

Continuity mistake: The number of credit cards the man pulls out of the wallet at the start of the movie changes between shots.

Continuity mistake: After Lisa kills Jackson's hit man, she has a wound on her forehead. During the rest of the scenes in and outside the house, the wound keeps changing shape and position.


Continuity mistake: When Lisa gives the book to the older lady in line, her grip on the book constantly changes between shots.

Continuity mistake: When Jackson chases Lisa up the stairs, they pass a coat rack with a coat, some bag with strap and umbrella. The center hanging item bag strap changes colors after he falls down the stairs and when he's locking the door.

Continuity mistake: At the beginning of the film when Cynthia is talking to the two hotel guests, if you watch closely, the man's shirt is buttoned up to the top, and in the following shot the top button is undone.


Continuity mistake: The small wound on Lisa's forehead changes angle at the end of the film.


Continuity mistake: When Jackson is upstairs stalking Lisa and right after she grabs the club, we see her looking around the corner of the doorway. There's a cardboard box with the flap up. A few shots later we see the flaps horizontal.

Continuity mistake: Characters' head positions change throughout movie. This starts from the first shot from Jack's left side, as they are in line for the counter. Jack is either reading the paper, or looking ahead, or to the left from Jack's right side. When the scene is filmed from the left angle Jack's head position is often the opposite. On the plane both Lisa and Jack show continuity problems in head position. Often the heads are forward, or toward each other when shot from the left angle, then facing each other from the other angle, without time or reason for the transition.

Continuity mistake: Jack's hairstyle changes throughout the film. The first shot of Jack in line shows a different style than any other shot in the film. Variations of styles with hair over forehead occur throughout, but hairstyles from different camera angles on the plane change from hair over forehead, to center part neatly exposing the forehead.
