Hollow Man

Continuity mistake: When Linda and Matt are trying to escape from the freezer, the amount of blood changes on the door lock.

Continuity mistake: Matt is bitten by the gorilla on his hand in the beginning, but in the next scene where the gorilla is strapped to the table, his hand is fine. Shortly after the gorilla is made visible, his hand is suddenly bandaged.

Continuity mistake: In the early part of the movie when Sebastian is checking the stability of the molecule, you see the 3D molecule model explode and the separated atoms pause. When Sebastian turns away, you can see that the atoms are no longer on the same position.

Continuity mistake: When Kevin Bacon and Elizabeth Shue's boyfriend shoot the gorilla, the gorilla passes out. No one moves the gorilla, yet the red headed veterinarian walks right through the area where the gorilla passed out.

Continuity mistake: When Elizabeth Shue sets off the automatic sprinkler system on the ceiling, a great amount of water is spraying from each one. However, after Shue and Josh Brolin attempt to climb up the escape ladder through the elevator shaft, all of the water is gone.

Continuity mistake: The "tranquilliser guns" are really PGP paintball pistols. The little tube on top only has a little hole the size of a paintball you load it, yet in the movie they seem to hold a good amount of large darts in that tiny gun.

Factual error: Gorillas are strict herbivores. So why does Isabelle eat a rat at the beginning of the film? The serum may have turned her into a crazed killer, as it does with Sebastian, but it hasn't changed the structure of her teeth and palate, biochemistry of her digestive system and so on, all of which would be required. She might kill or torture the rat, but she'd never eat it.

Suggested correction: Gorillas do sometimes eat meat, especially small animals. Also, Isabelle may not be getting fed the right foods resorting to her eating a rat. Humans will resort to drinking their own urine without access to water for a period of time, it's not far fetched that a gorilla will eat something that will be harmful to its body in a similar circumstance.

Gorillas do NOT eat rats. Inventing Deus Ex Machina explanations for a factual error (Isabelle was underfed so she was desperate for food!) does not invalidate the error. The posting needs a little more detail but is absolutely correct.

Linda: Let me tell you a little secret. The concept of Sebastian is much more appealing then Sebastian himself.

Trivia: Whenever Sebastian is invisible and interacting with the other characters, Kevin Bacon's voice would be broadcast throughout several speakers randomly hidden throughout the set. This was done to make the reaction more genuine, since the actors would honestly not know where his voice was going to come from next, just as the characters would not know where Sebastian was.

Question: Two songs were playing in Sebastian's car. One song as noticed twice was 'Power Struggle'. He was listening to another song later on in the movie. What was the name of this song and who plays it?

Answer: The song is Charlie Big Potato by Skunk Anansie. Very good song when played very loud.
