Mortal Kombat: Annihilation

Continuity mistake: There's a part when Raiden, Liu Kang, Kitana, Jade Jax and Sonya are confronted by 3 ninjas and Sindel. Raiden decides to take on the ninjas, but you'll notice that he only fights against 2 of them.

Continuity mistake: In the final battle between Motaro and Jax, Motaro breaks Jax's bionic arms and hold it up to Shao Kahn. The cloakless Shao Kahn, who has been fighting Liu Kang, all of a sudden has his cloak on again.

Revealing mistake: At the end of the Sub-Zero vs Scorpion fight, Liu Kang jumps over to help Sub-Zero and Scorpion teleports away. A few moments later you see a shot where you see all the actors, (Liu Kang, Sub-Zero and Kitana), if you look closely you can see Scorpion waiting in the background just waiting to pop up and snatch Kitana.

Continuity mistake: During the Liu vs Baraka fight, Liu kicks Baraka into a firepit. However, the footage used to show Baraka falling into the flame is the same as the footage used earlier to show the ninja Rain falling into the fire pit.

Revealing mistake: When Sonja is fighting Mileena in the mud pit, at one point Sonja is kicked or thrown through the air and lands on a large boulder. The boulder quite obviously moves under her weight as she lands on it.

Continuity mistake: When Scorpion and Sub-Zero are about to fight we clearly see Scorpion with white contacts over his eyes, but during the fighting you can tell the actor/stuntman playing Scorpion does not have any white contacts in.

Revealing mistake: At the beginning of the film directly in front of Sonya a brick pillar falls down. It cracks and you can see bits of uncolored foam.

Continuity mistake: After Rayden has his new identity, he is attacked by a group of ninjas. During this fight scene you can clearly see Rayden's stunt double instead of the main actor fighting.

Revealing mistake: After Sonya has beaten the pink-clad assassin, Jax beats up the demon that comes out of the ground. As said demon retreats into the earth, watch as its right horn simply disappears from the shot halfway down into the ground.

Other mistake: At the start of the movie when Shao Kahn and Raiden are fighting, Shao Kahn smashes Raiden into a pile of bricks. Then Shao Kahn says "You will never win". Watch when he says it because his mouth doesn't move.

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Sonya fights Malena, the amount of mud that Sonya gets on her increases and decreases throughout the fight.

Revealing mistake: When the robotic character Smoke fires a missile that destroys a large structure in the underground cavern during his fight with Lui, if you look closely, when the explosion occurs, you can actually see additional "phantom" debris exploding upwards (from two independent bursts) from underneath the fog in front of the actual explosion, obviously to make it seem more dramatic. These secondary bursts also noticably occur several seconds after the initial explosion.

Continuity mistake: At the beginning, Raiden's hair is loose, but when he somersaults to fight Shao Kahn, it is tied up. It is loose again after the fight.

Visible crew/equipment: When the purple ninja 'Rain' is smacked into the fire pit by Shao Khan, look closely as the body falls into the pit. A stage helper's hand comes up to catch the falling 'body'.

Continuity mistake: Somehow right after the mud fight Sonya is completely clean and dry minutes later. Yes she said she wanted to find a river and clean up, but her white shirt wouldn't have cleaned like that in a river.

Revealing mistake: When Smoke is frozen and then is kicked into the pit where he explodes, watch closely. In the second shot of the explosion, once the plume of fire clears, you can see a strange-looking flame at the bottom of the screen moving subtly from right-to-left in a very unnatural way. Obviously a part of the explosive charge that created the effect. (Likely some sort-of mortar or something similar that propelled the fire upwards and is still burning).

Revealing mistake: When Sonya grabs Cyrax's back and throws him into the wall (towards the end of their fight), you can see his back, supposedly made of metal (he is a robot), bend like rubber.

Deliberate mistake: When Sonya finishes Mileena, Mileena's shoulders are muddy and she is face down, but when we have a close up of the dragon tattoo the right shoulder is cleaned off and what mud is left is dry. (00:42:25)

Continuity mistake: In the beginning when Rayden and Shao Kahn are fighting, one of Kahns warriors throws him a rope. When he throws it to him it has a loop in it. However in the next shot there's no loop and he uses it to get Sonya.

Mortal Kombat: Annihilation mistake picture

Revealing mistake: During the opening scene, a few shots after we see the Outworld ninjas falling through the portal and leaping about, there's a shot of several monks fleeing that tilts up towards the (digitally replaced) sky. As it does this, you can see several hard lines about in the sky from where pieces of the digital animated skies were "stitched together." It's hard to miss the first time, but if you know to look for them, they're pretty obvious.
