The Shadow

Continuity mistake: In the water tank sequence Cranston dives to the bullet holes to get air. When he dives down there is a camera shot looking up at him from the bottom of the tank showing that there is plenty of air left at the top, no doubt left there so that the actor would not drown. And; for the sealed tank to fill completely there must have been a way for air to escape rapidly from the top. When the tank was full water kept pouring in and would have escaped the same way. When Margo arrives there is no water coming off the top of the tank.

Suggested correction: The tank is to test pressure. Had water been escaping so would have Cranston.

Continuity mistake: When Claymore shoots the invisible Cranston (The Shadow) in the water tank, a small volume of blood immediately starts dripping into the water. When Cranston materializes seconds later there is no blood whatsoever on him and no blood comes off him or his clothing when he dives into the water.

Continuity mistake: In the scene on the bridge near the beginning, when we first see The Shadow, he's only wearing a coat, not his cape. The shot switches, and when we again see The Shadow, he now has a cape. The cape must have been a CGI effect, because trailers and commercials show the same shot WITH the cape.
