G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra

Continuity mistake: When Ana returns home to her husband, they converse outside the house. He asks her how it was in Monte Carlo. As he asks her this, she is entering the front door and he is about 8 feet behind, following her. The next shot shows them both in the house, and they are very close together when she answers that she didn't get what she want.

Continuity mistake: After the Hummer crashes into the train during the chase in Paris, Ana crawls out of the wreck. The right side of her face is covered in streaks of blood. Seconds later, as she runs into the balloon guy, her face is spotless. The blood returns when Ana enters the glass elevator.

Continuity mistake: Throughout the movie, Heavy Duty has an earring in his left ear. However, during the underwater fight scene, it is in his right ear.

Continuity mistake: You can see the scar on Duke's cheek changes size throughout the movie. Compare the scar at the beginning of the film and the end. Much longer at the start, but at the end it is really small.

00:04:20 - 01:46:35

Low Cow

Continuity mistake: After the Joes are released from the French, Heavy Duty and Ripcord are walking ahead and talking about Duke. Far shot shows them reaching the edge of the shadow of the building they are leaving. The next shot up close and they are back in the shadow again, and the shadow's position and shape has changed indicating the shot was taken later in the day.

01:11:25

Quantom X

Continuity mistake: In the proposal flashback, Ana pulls down her brother roughly. The shot of him standing shows Duke sitting with a grin on his face laughing. The next shot of her brother down, shows Duke with no expression or grin.

00:27:35

Quantom X

Continuity mistake: When Duke proposes to Ana, she tells him "On one condition." At this moment, Duke is looking straight at her, eyes at her. The shot changes and he is suddenly looking down with eyes down.

00:27:25

Quantom X

Continuity mistake: Duke and Ripcord are arguing about joining the Air Force. Moments before Duke says "I want to be on the ground in the fight, not flying over it" two large rocks come into view out his window as they pass. Shot cuts to Ripcord's reaction, then back to Duke which takes a few seconds. Those same two rocks come into view again through his window.

00:06:05

Quantom X

Continuity mistake: After the first scene with McCullen getting the red hot mask on his face, another guy is giving a presentation of the new nanomites at an assembly. One shot, he has one hand on the podium and one at his side. The immediately following shot from a distance shows both hands gripping the podium's sides.

00:03:10

Quantom X

Continuity mistake: During the chase in Paris, Storm Shadow is wearing a suit. However, in the helicopter right before his flashback, he is wearing his combat outfit. When the helicopter lands, he's back in the suit.

Hex

Continuity mistake: During the chase scene in Paris, at one point they drive through the Arc de Triomph. The next shot of the left side of the Hummer shows the special bumper already fitted. After that, Anna still has to redeploy it.

00:56:15

Friso94

Continuity mistake: In the flashback scene where the younger Snake Eyes and Storm Shadow are fighting in the kitchen, Storm Shadow kicks the burners on on the grill as Snake Eyes runs across them. In the next shots, the grill is turned off to allow Storm Shadow to perform his leg lock choke hold just before the Hard Master walks in.

00:44:20

Continuity mistake: When Duke suited up in the van before the car chase in Paris, the Gatling gun was on his right arm, while the rockets were on his left. During the chase, right after they determined the target was the Eiffel Tower, Duke raised his left arm to fire the Gatling gun. Then a few moments later, Duke again raised his left arm to fire a rocket.

00:57:25 - 00:58:45

BigDevil

Continuity mistake: During the chase in Paris one of the GIs jumps through a train. Since he is heavy and moving forward, and the train is moving to his left, this exit hole in the train would be further back than his entry hole. But in the clip where he is inside the train, you can see the train moving - but he is moving with the train. That is wrong. The train would be moving left relative to him (even though the shot is in slow motion).

Continuity mistake: At the very beginning, as Ana is running away with the Nano warheads with Duke following, she is first holding the case in her right hand. Cut to a shot in front of her and the case is now in her left hand. It is back in her right hand in the next shot.

00:12:10

Continuity mistake: When they have loaded and just taken off from the laboratory in Paris, the warhead case is on the ground beside the SUV.

Add time

Continuity mistake: When Ripcord is chasing down the warheads up high in the "Night Raven" plane, the heads-up-display indicates him being at around 65,000 feet. When he chases one down to Washington DC and is flying no more than 200 feet off of the ground, the HUD is still indicating an altitude of around 65,000 feet.

Add time

Continuity mistake: That scene where they almost run into the coach obviously has a cross road, but with the conversation continuing in the following shots, there is no intersection running across, or sight of the passenger vehicle.

Add time

Continuity mistake: When chasing the missile heading for Moscow it is said that they must stop the missile before it re-enters the atmosphere. But there are clouds all around them and the sky is blue. They are in the (very low!) atmosphere.

01:31:00

Jacob La Cour

Continuity mistake: When Ripcord is chasing missiles in the Night Raven, we see a computer screen showing the trajectories of the 3 missiles and Night Raven. But the first missile was shot down immediately after launch (a long time before Night Raven took off). Even though the display reads 'Signal lost' the missile did definitely not get that high.

01:29:15

Jacob La Cour

Continuity mistake: In the final scene when the planes take off from the underground base in the dessert, the distance between the 'roof' holes does not match between the shot when seen from below and from above. From below the holes are quite close, (compared to the size of the holes), but from above they are quite far apart.

Jacob La Cour

Continuity mistake: Right after the missiles are fired, three of the good guys run to the missile tube carrying rappelling ropes. Not a whole lot - maybe 50 meters, or 100 meters at max! But when you look down the missile tube - it is DEEP. Nevertheless they have just the right amount of rope to reach the bottom.

01:25:05

Jacob La Cour

Continuity mistake: During the chase in Paris, Ana's glasses change from dark to regular several times.

Mistakes

In the underwater scene when Rex blows up the ice pack, ice appears to be denser than water in this situation. The ice sinks when it's blown up, and even if there were pieces of metal on top of the ice, it shouldn't. Some pieces the size of a five-story building have no metal and still sink.

Trivia

In the scene where Ripcord and Duke are in the transport and Ripcord pats Heavy Duty on the back and gets his arm twisted as a result, Ripcord makes a crack about Heavy Duty having a "Kung Fu Grip". This refers to some of the earliest G.I. Joe's action figures who were advertised to have the Kung Fu Grip.
