Plot hole: Immediately after the confrontation between Harry/McGonagall and Snape in the Great Hall, Harry runs up to Ravenclaw tower against crowds of students running the opposite direction. However, all the students would have been in the Great Hall during that confrontation, and therefore would have been coming from the same direction as Harry.
Other mistake: In both the books and the movies, Harry's Invisibility Cloak can always be seen until it is worn. In Diagon Alley, just before the Gringott's break-in, Ron pulls out the cloak to cover Harry and Griphook, but it turns invisible before he puts it on them. Ron merely mimes the motion of covering them.
Continuity mistake: Just after Harry and Lord Voldemort have their altercation in the Forbidden Forest, Neville is seen walking into Hogwarts' courtyard entrance to pick up the sorting hat. In the first shot, there is a camera angle of him from the waist down from behind, and he is stepping over the rubble and having no trouble walking. In the very next shot, you get a full frontal view of him walking, and he is limping and can barely move.
Continuity mistake: Throughout all the movies, the characters discuss several times how much Harry's eyes resemble his mother's. When we see flashbacks of Lily in this movie she has dark brown eyes. In past movies, when she was portrayed as a Hogwarts student, (in most of the same memories) she had blue eyes.
Continuity mistake: When Nagini (the snake) is moving down the stairs to attack Ron and Hermione, it lunges from midway down the stairs, under the archway. After intercutting a shot of the duel between Voldemort and Harry, Nagini is lunging from the ground, far away from the staircase and the archway.
Continuity mistake: During the duel between Harry and Voldemort whilst they are on the Hogwarts staircase, there's a midshot of Voldemort casting a spell. His arm is at an extreme bend with his elbow close to the top of his head, and his forearm is above his head. The very next shot from a different angle, Voldemort's arm is straighter and his elbow is not bent, with his arm a considerable length away from his head.
Continuity mistake: After arriving in Hogsmeade, when Harry is talking to Aberforth Dumbledore, the table by the window has two chairs on one side of the table. A few minutes later, there's only one chair on that side, and the other chair is now at the end where there was previously none at all.
Continuity mistake: When Ron is about to cast a spell to destroy Nagini the view of him pointing his wand starts out from behind him and Hermione, before the shot changes we see Hermione turn her head towards Ron. When the shot changes to face them Hermione is looking at the snake then turns her head again.
Visible crew/equipment: Just after Harry, Hermione and Ron have escaped Gringotts and land in the ocean, they then wash up on an island and Voldemort finds out Harry is hunting Horcruxes. During that time Harry says "There's something wrong with him". When he says that, the camera wobbles slightly indicating that there is a camera there.

Revealing mistake: When Lupin is on the castle bridge and reunites with his wife-right after the scene where Neville beckons the dark wizards that disintegrate in the force-field-if you carefully watch the right hand corner of the screen, a very obvious green screen error can be seen in the castle window.
Other mistake: After Voldemort disapparates while Snape is dying, Harry asks Hermione for a flask for Snape's tears. She pulls a vial out of her purse. However, she hadn't had a purse during the entire battle, then has one at this moment. Afterwards, she no longer has the purse in any other scene.
