The Phantom

The Phantom (1996)

10 mistakes

Factual error: When Xander's thugs are taking the Phantom up to the roof to do away with him, he breaks away and ducks into the machinery room for the elevator. In the scene the door of the room is lockable from the inside only. This door should be lockable from only the outside.

Audio problem: When policemen are pursuing the Phantom in the park, their motorcycle tyres makes sounds and sparkles on the ground as if it was asphalt, but it's dirt.

Dr Wilson

Continuity mistake: The Phantom and Diana take an airplane to escape the boat. Drax's henchmen shoot at it, touch the gas tank and gas starts flowing from it. You can only see gas two times, during close shots.

Dr Wilson

Factual error: When the policemen are shooting at the Phantom in the park, bullets make little explosions when they hit the trees, as if it was metal.

Dr Wilson

Factual error: When the car pulls away from the front of the "New York World History Museum", you can see palm trees reflected on the car, revealing that "New York" was actually filmed in California.

Add time

Continuity mistake: At the end when Billy Zane takes off his mask, the black makeup around his eyes "magically" disappears, even before the eyepatch section gets pulled from his face.

Add time

Visible crew/equipment: Near the beginning when the Phantom is rescuing the little boy from the back of the truck, as he is hanging from the rope bridge, the safety carabiner holding him up is visible several times.

Add time

Factual error: Throughout the movie, any cigarettes smoked are filtered. The movie is set in the 30s-40s. The first filtered cigarettes were from a company called Lorilland for their "Kent" brand in 1952.

Add time

Visible crew/equipment: After the villain's have been in the cave at the beginning of the movie (one gets killed by a "skeleton") and they run out, the Phantom is chasing them on his horse. He grabs a bad guy by the shirt and throws him into a tree. Watch when the guy hits the tree- it moves, indicating it's made of foam or rubber for the stunt guy to hit safely.

Add time

Deliberate mistake: By the time the island blows up after Drax is destroyed, don't the explosions seem to move very slowly at the shot where Zane dives into the water?
