Unbreakable

Factual error: When Bruce Willis is looking at his old high school news clippings you see a professional baseball score on one of the newspaper clippings. The game was Pittsburgh vs. Arizona Diamondbacks. The Diamondbacks were not a team yet when he was in high school. (00:33:35)

Character mistake: In the final scene, one of the newspaper clippings on the killer's office wall reads something like, "Huge Mudslide in Mexico: All Killed Expect Newborn." The penultimate word should be "except." (01:35:55)

Revealing mistake: When Bruce Willis is in the hospital, the doctor comes up to him and asks Bruce to look at him. The doctor proceeds to get a torch out and shine it into his eyes. Yet there is no light coming out of the torch. (00:10:25)

Trivia: Another comic book reference: they both have signature colors. Mr Glass' color is purple (his clothes, the envelope he leaves on the windshield, interior of his house, etc.) while David's is green (all of the interior in his house, his raincoat, his suit on the train etc.).

Trivia: The first and last name of Bruce Willis' character, David Dunn, begins with the same sound, like other comic book heroes such as Peter Parker, Clark Kent, Matt Murdock, and Bruce Banner.

Trivia: There is a theme of upside down being bad. The girl in the train stands on her head before the crash. The son is watching TV upside down. When Mr Glass falls down he falls on his back and sees the figure he is chasing upside down. When Bruce Willis breaks into the train wreck, the warning sign in the gates are upside down. Willis falls head first into the pool. The comic book given to Elijah is first viewed... you guessed it upside down! Not a mistake, but great directing.

Elijah Price: Now that we know who you are, I know who I am. I'm not a mistake. In the comics, you know how you can tell who the arch-villain is going to be? He's the exact opposite of the hero. And sometimes they're friends, just like you and me. I should have known way back when. You know why, David? Because of the kids. They called me Mr. Glass.

Question: I was watching this film on TV the other night, and was expecting to see the train crash at the start, so I was surprised when I didn't. Has this been cut from the TV version?

Chosen answer: No, the crash never actually happened on-screen.
