Children of Men

Continuity mistake: As Theo is sitting down at his desk, the camera comes up from behind the woman across from him, who has small knick knacks and figurines covering her desk. The shot zooms in on Theo and then switches to the crying woman. When the shot changes, notice the "fat-baby" figurine suddenly switches with two-smaller animal figurines. It's hard to tell what they are, but it's easy to see they've been switched with the baby.

Continuity mistake: When the windscreen is shot at, it begins to crack across, showing it's laminated as you'd expect, then in the next shot it shatters as though it is toughened glass. Laminated glass doesn't shatter into hundreds of pieces.

Continuity mistake: When the man leaves the greyhound track and runs for the bus, that type of bus is an old metrobus, but the inside of the bus he jumps on at the time is a brand new (at the time) Dennis president bus.

Mistakes

The infant baby was computer animated in every scene in which the face appeared. Even the feet were obviously touched up by computer in the hallway scene. The lighting isn't quite right, the skin texture isn't quite right, and the child's face is just too animated.

Trivia

When Theo goes to visit his cousin at his apartment at Battersea Power Station, an inflatable pig can be seen flying between the smokestacks, a recreation of and reference to the cover of the Pink Floyd album "Animals," whose vision of society the film mirrors.
