Now You See Me

Continuity mistake: When Daniel starts doing a card trick on Thaddeus in their room, all four Horsemen are standing even with each other. A couple shots later, Henley and Jack are both suddenly standing behind Daniel and Merritt. Then a few shots after that, they are even with each other again. Extended version.

Continuity mistake: When the Horsemen find the blueprints, as Henley says "I really want to meet them", she is standing about a foot away from Daniel. But in the next shot, she's suddenly standing several feet away from him.

Casual Person

Continuity mistake: In the 5 Pointz, Queens scene where three of the four horsemen project themselves on the walls of the building, you see a cut to them standing in front of their three cameras. The cameras are pointed closely at their faces and yet you see a complete body shot of each one on the walls.

Continuity mistake: As Jack shows Dylan the cards (before throwing them at him), Dylan then says "Really?" And we can see there is already a huge red scratch on his cheek, which isn't caused until the cards are thrown. It couldn't have been from when Jack threw the flash paper at Dylan because no scratch mark was visible when that happened.

Casual Person

Continuity mistake: In a flashback of the money being stolen from the vault, the card with the signature is notably in front of the Las Vegas ticket. The next shot where the employee enters the vault, now shows the ticket on top of the card if you look very closely.

00:39:20

Casual Person

Continuity mistake: For Henley's trick she has handcuffs chained to her and is dropped into a tank. In one of the reverse angles, she has both of her arms stretched out. But in a close-up of her arms, she now has her arms extended with them in front of her. She is saying the same line during all of the shots as this happens so it couldn't have had anything to do with several seconds passing between shots.

Continuity mistake: When Jack performs his magic trick on the spoon, a man figures out how he did it and demands $100. In a close-up of his wallet, the wallet is opened. But in the wide angle, the wallet is suddenly closed.

Factual error: In the final scene in Paris at the bridge with the padlocks, most of the keys tossed in the river are distinctive Kwikset brand keys. Kwikset only makes one fairly specialised type of padlock - no way all the keys are for that one type.

Other mistake: When Dylan is transported from the stage to "the vault", Alma, Thaddeus and Thaddeus' assistant manage to get down the stairs to "the vault" just a few seconds after he lands as if they took a simple walk there. How would they get there that fast anyway? Dylan got to "the vault" by going through a "teleportation device" that went straight to the fake vault under the stage, but the other three had to walk down a flight of stairs to get there. Even with the fake vault being close to the stage it still would take longer to get down to the fake vault. To begin with, when the vault opened, the stairs they walked down were visible several meters in the background. There were about 13 steps on the staircase which would have made the width of the staircase about 3 meters and the height about 4 meters. With the staircase at this length and position, the staircase leading to the fake vault would have had to have been located around the sitting area. Alma, Thaddeus and Thaddeus' assistant managed to get to the fake vault in about 6 seconds, too quickly.

Continuity mistake: Just after Daniel and Henley put the rabbit in the box at the New Orleans show, Daniel closes the lid to the rabbit box. Daniel then says "If you'll say the magic word?" to Henley. Henley at this point, has both of her hands on her hips. Then her hands in front of her belly held together. The shot after that shows her hands are behind her back.

Continuity mistake: At the apartment, Dylan takes the Guardians of Horus off Alma and goes to the living room and places it on a table. The scene cuts to Alma sleeping and the scene cuts back to Dylan. In the first shot, his gun is placed next to the book and is facing a 7 o'clock angle and is a few inches away from the edge of the table. In the following shot, the gun is now facing a 12 o'clock direction and on the edge of the desk. Extended version.

Casual Person

Continuity mistake: When Thaddeus shows his wine changing color trick, Alma goes to drink from the glass. In one shot, the glass is right next to her mouth, but in the following shot, the glass is now on her lap. Extended version.

00:33:20

Casual Person

Continuity mistake: When Alma walks over to the bench on the bridge, there is a woman sitting on it and a guy standing next to the bench. When she sits down, the woman sitting and the guy standing next to it have instantly vanished.

01:51:20

Casual Person

Continuity mistake: When Alma says "Nice watch" to Dylan before the Horsemen begin the New Orleans show, her arms are on the arm rests. Next shot, her arms are suddenly crossed.

Continuity mistake: When the audience's account balances start rising, Dylan asks Fuller if it is for real. The scene cuts to Fuller in the van. To the side of him is a woman on a computer. Next to her is another computer that shows green encryption. In a close-up, the encryption is orange, then back to green.

Casual Person

Continuity mistake: During their conversation on the balcony, when Alma says "Do you really think it's possible there's a fifth Horseman?", the left side (right side from camera view) of her jumper shows a couple of inches of her shoulder. But in the following shot, her jumper now covers up the left side of her entire shoulder.

00:02:15

Casual Person

Continuity mistake: When Thaddeus shows to Dylan and Alma the first Four Horsemen's trick, when Dylan is in the teleport device, as the cloth is being lowered down, he is seen looking straight forward at a 12 o'clock direction. Shot cuts and he is instantly looking downwards.

Continuity mistake: After Dylan interrogates the Frenchman, he goes to the fridge and gets a soda, then walks toward the other interrogation rooms. In the very next shot, he has a bag of chips instead.

Suggested correction: When he is walking away from the fridge we see him holding the top of a potato chip bag with his left hand against the soda can he is opening, and in the later clips until he enters the mentalist's room he continues to have both a soda and a bag of chips.

Visible crew/equipment: When the car chase happens on the bridge, at the point just before the car comes to a stop upside down, the roll/safety cage can be briefly seen. It can also be seen as the car explodes just after Mark Ruffalo put his hands on his own car.
