Hannibal
Hannibal mistake picture

Revealing mistake: During the scene in which Krendler shows the fake Lecter postcard, look closely and you can read the line: "Sounds like him to me" although this line is part of Krendler's speech, and not part of the message itself. Forgetting your lines, Mr. Liotta? (01:21:55)

Video

Revealing mistake: When the rich guy is drinking Chateau d'Yquem from a straw, you can see, afterwards, Gary Oldman's lips under the thick mask or whatever. This is really obvious. (01:23:35)

Revealing mistake: At the end of the telephone conversation between Krendler and Verger we see Krendler with his mobile phone, and through Krendler's phone we hear Verger hanging up. The sound we hear is unequivocally that of a receiver being hung up on a desktop telephone, but in all of the shots portraying Verger in this sequence we see him using a mobile phone. With mobile phones a conversation is ended simply by pressing a button—-there is nothing to hang up. (01:21:20)

Revealing mistake: During the shootout in a market, when a cop is run over, from the shot inside the car the blood and damage are already seen on the glass before he is hit.

Revealing mistake: When Pazzi is visiting Hannibal, you can see a group of monks at the top of some steps waiting for their cue - the camera gets closer to them and they all start walking down. (00:48:00)

Revealing mistake: When Pazzi is killed, there's a shot of his cell phone and phone battery slamming into the ground followed by a splatter of his innards. However, there is a (rather obvious and poorly timed) jump-cut in the middle of the shot, right before his innards splatter down from above. His cell phone is still moving about a bit, when suddenly it goes perfect still in an unnatural way. It also moves ever-so-slightly to the left when the cut happens. It's supposed to appear to be one continuous shot, but it's clear they dropped the cell-phone, waited for it to settle, then dropped the innards and tried to edit it so the shot moved faster.

Revealing mistake: When Hannibal slices Pazzi's stomach open, his shirt is open and bloody the whole shot, even before he starts slicing.

Revealing mistake: When Evelda is killed, her baby is replaced for a blatant, crappy, crummy doll.

Continuity mistake: When Clarice is opening the letter written to her by Hannibal, it is sealed with wax, and not glued down in any way. While she's reading it, Hannibal is shown licking an envelope. (00:32:05)

Trivia: At the end of the opening credits, just after "Screenplay by David Mamet" and before "directed by Ridley Scott", look at the right hand side of the screen - you can see Hannibal's face drawn by pigeons. (00:04:25)
