Saw V

Continuity mistake: When Seth has been sliced by the blade, he spits blood that goes all over his face. It then cuts to Hoffman looking at him, then back to Seth, and now the blood on his face has gone. This happens three or four times. (00:05:10)

Continuity mistake: The air hoses attached to the glass box at the end of the film are hanging straight down in some shots, and are wrapped around themselves in others, without anybody touching them.

Continuity mistake: The air hoses at the end of the film keep changing position. There is a shot from above: the air hoses are below actually resting on top of the glass box. Then when Strahm is trying to get out through the roof, there is a small rectangle cut out of the grated mesh and the hoses are above the roof and are not resting on the box anymore.

Continuity mistake: After the first room bombs go off, all the people are crouched on the floor and there is a load of dust. Camera shows Billy, then the people again. Now, there is no dust and everyone is stood up again. (00:35:05)

Continuity mistake: Throughout the movie, the clocks show incorrect time and at times changes from 8:20 to 18:20 and the countdown clock shows wrong sequencing. (01:01:00)

Continuity mistake: When Strahm looks at his phone while locked in the sick room, the signal bar is on the right and the battery signal on the left. When Hoffman plants Strahm's phone in his hideout to frame Strahm, the signal bar is now on the left and the battery on the right. (00:06:40)

Continuity mistake: The tape recorder changes position in the final game. After the walls start moving in, Strahm drops the tape recorder and it is facing the door, completely straight. When he goes and gets his gun to shoot the box, it is on a slant now. Strahm didn't move it.

Continuity mistake: When Strahm looks at the file and says "got you" he points at the 4th record on the list. Camera cuts and now he's pointing at the 6th. (00:29:10)

Continuity mistake: At the very start we see Seth with the collar round his neck, connected by a bolt. When the collar opens at the end of the trap, the bolt has disappeared. (00:02:20)

Continuity mistake: In Seth's trap, the mechanism that is connected to the hand crushers is moving one way and then stops. When it continues, it continues the same direction. However the hand crushers now go up. (00:04:30)

Continuity mistake: When Jigsaw's lawyer puts the opened envelope down on the desk, having taken the video out, he puts it horizontally on the folder. Camera cuts and it's now rotated 90 degrees instantly. (00:12:40)

Continuity mistake: When we first see Hoffman looking at the CCTV screens, we can see Ashley is lying down. When it shows her waking up, however, she is sat up. (00:20:20)

Continuity mistake: Spoiler: Right at the end, we find out that Saw III and Saw IV were happening simultaneously, as demonstrated by Strahm walking in and killing Jeff. We then see Hoffman close the door on Strahm, locking him in the room. Saw V continues from the exact moment when Hoffman shuts the door on Strahm. In Saw V, Strahm quickly kicks the door with his foot just seconds after Hoffman has closed it. However in Saw IV, we see Hoffman walking away. In this shot we should hear Strahm kicking on the door.

Continuity mistake: Jigsaw puts the razor down on a piece of paper and it is in a near right angle. When Hoffman picks the razor up, it is still at an angle. However, as soon as it's in his hand it's perfectly straight. There is no time for Hoffman to straighten the razor without us seeing him do so. (00:47:00)

Continuity mistake: When the five victims are in collars ready to start their first test, Ashley gets decapitated at the end. There is a shot of her head on the ground in a pool of blood. But in another scene later on Mallick goes through the door into the next room where you can see the head on the ground, and the pool of blood under the head has vanished. (00:26:50 - 00:33:15)

Continuity mistake: Just as the second room trap comes to a close we see 9 seconds on the timer and hear it ticking down. We hear 4 ticks and then there are 2 seconds left. There should be 5. (00:37:20)

Quotes

Jigsaw: Hello, Agent Strahm. If you're hearing this, then you've finally found what you've been looking for. But is the discovery of my body enough? Or will your insatiable hunger to uncover the truth push you deeper into the abyss? Heed my warning: do not proceed. For this room can either be you sanctuary, or it can be your grave. The choice is yours.
Agent Strahm: Fuck you.

Trivia

(Spoiler) Strahm is killed by the walls of the final room crushing him. However, in the original script, rather than the walls crushing, the room was supposed to fill with water, thus mirroring that trap that nearly killed Strahm in the beginning of the movie. Due to practicality reasons, this idea was dropped, though it does explain the air-tubes coming of the glass box. (Which would have been for Strahm to breath.)
