The Matrix

Continuity mistake: When Neo is following Morpheus' instruction to escape the agents who have come to arrest him at work, the location of the knot in his tie changes - note the pattern.

Continuity mistake: In the subway fight scene, Neo is thrown to the floor and wipes blood from his mouth on his hand. It then cuts back to Agent Smith. When it cuts back to Neo, he assumes a fighting stance and you can see that there is no blood on either side of his hands.

Continuity mistake: In the subway fight sequence between Neo and Smith, you see Smith swing his right fist toward Neo. When the camera cuts to a closer shot, Smith is swinging his left fist toward Neo.

Movie Nut

Continuity mistake: In the "Deja vu" scene, Neo uses a CZ99 pistol to shoot through the wall at the police officer, but when Agent Smith bursts through the wall and grabs him, Neo is holding a Glock 17.

The Matrix mistake picture

Visible crew/equipment: When Neo is going to open the door to enter the Oracle's house, you can clearly see a camera on the doorknob. There's a sheet over it painted to look like the wall behind it, with a representation of Morpheus' tie too, because he's blocked by the camera. (01:07:40)
