Factual error: Early on in the movie there are boxes of new dell machines and moniters in the hallways. 3 things are wrong with this situation. First off, the design on the boxes is a newer design that was implemented in 2003, but the movie is set in 2001. Secondly, none of the monitors that you see in the office are dell monitors. 3rd, all the monitor boxes in the hallways are for flat panels (designated by the FP on the sides of the boxes), yet there are CRT monitors sitting on the desks. (I know about the box design because our company has a contract with Dell for our computers. I've personally done the ordering/config/setup since 2000).

Continuity mistake: John's face is all bloody after he rolls from the car and "kills a helicopter with a car". The blood on his face constantly changes during the shots. Sometimes there is blood all over his face, sometimes there is quite a bit less. Sometimes he has blood streaming from the cut on his nose, sometimes there is nothing on his nose. The blood changes back and forth, so it's not just him wiping the blood away from his face (and his hands are by his sides during all the shots). (00:44:35 - 00:45:30)
Continuity mistake: Jeff lays his bloodied hand right in the center of Jigsaw's chest (pointing towards Jigsaw's chin) when he says "I forgive you", but pretty much only his fingertips touch Jigsaw. Right before Jeff slices Jigsaw's neck you can see the handprint, but it's MUCH more defined than it should be AND the fingers are pointing towards the right instead of straight up. (01:42:10)
Continuity mistake: When Amanda gets shot and falls next to the cart you can see that there is no blood on the cart. The next time you see her there are blood splatters all over it. Every time you see the cart there is a different design of blood on it, and at least one time there is no blood to be seen.
Continuity mistake: When Amanda says "I'm standing right here" her hair is hanging down, but brushed back from her right eye, in the previous and subsequent shots her hair is hanging down and covering her right eye. She was holding the gun in her right hand the whole time and all the cuts were instant, there was no time to move her hair.
Continuity mistake: When Lynn says "Please, please let me go" there are tears in both eyes and tear marks on her cheeks. 2 shots later (maybe 7 seconds) you see a close-up of her face and there are no tears or tear marks. (Jigsaw was holding her hand, so she couldn't have wiped them away, plus you can see Lynn the whole time (in the background) and she never wipes them off). (01:26:10)
Continuity mistake: When Jeff leans down to Lynn you can see she she has some blood on her chin and neck. The shot goes to Jigsaw, then back to Lynn and Jeff. Now her neck and chin have no blood. Shot moves to Jigsaw again, then back to Jeff and Lynn. Now she has blood on her neck and chin *and* blood from the corner of her mouth.
Continuity mistake: Amanda's hair is in a lose ponytail when she sees Jigsaw holding Lynn's hand. A large part of her hair is hanging down the right side of her face and in her eye. She storms out of the room and now all of a sudden her hair is all pulled back in a tight ponytail and no hair is hanging down or behind her ear, it's all back in the ponytail (instant cut, no time for her to re-do her hair).
Continuity mistake: Right before Lynn says "I don't know what you know, but my marriage has survived more suffering that you could possibly imagine" her hair is all pulled back behind her ear. As she's saying that line you can now see that a noticeable amount is hanging on the side of her face and across her ear. (01:25:50)
Continuity mistake: There's a shot of the right foot when "The Rack" starts twisting it. There is a blood trail that runs off between his first 2 toes, and a lesser one that runs off between his 2nd and 3rd toes. The screen cuts to a close-up of the foot and there's only the blood trail that runs off between the first 2 toes.
Continuity mistake: In "The Rack" room you get a shot of the box holding the shotgun and the key. When first viewed from the back the keyfob and the key are directly parallel to the front and back of the box. The scene cuts back to the guy in the rack, then back to the box. Now the key and keyfob have moved and are almost vertical to the sides (the judge hadn't started to move it yet, there's nothing to explain how or why it would have moved).
