The Iron Giant

The Iron Giant (1999)

Continuity mistake: When the Iron Giant follows Hogarth home they cross a railwayline and the Giant starts to eat the steel rail. During this scene you can see the distance of the railway sleepers changing from a fair distance apart to close together over the course of the shots. In the same scene you can also see that, although there is a crossing with lights, no vehicle could possibly pass as the rail has no crossover facility at that level.

Factual error: In the scene where the Iron Giant is spinning the boy around in a junk car he is holding, notice that the car resembles a 1959 Cadillac...however since the film is set around 1957, this is not a likely car to be found anywhere yet, much less a junk yard.

Continuity mistake: When the Iron Giant first learns to talk, he picks up a huge boulder that wasn't there earlier. The boulder was in a pretty big hole, but when Hogarth walks away the hole has disappeared.
