The Unit (2006)

Dedication - S1-E7

Continuity mistake: As stated in another entry, Brown states that they are in a Huey when they are actually shown in a JetRanger. Later on, after twice showing night shots of a JetRanger flying overhead, they are shown in the cargo area of a Huey, then are shown flying and deploying out of a Huey.

The Unit (2006)

Dedication - S1-E7

Character mistake: When they show the helicopter containing Alpha team, it is a Bell 206 JetRanger, and the sound effects match it, but Brown says "This is the first time I'm on a Huey." The Huey and JetRanger look and sound nothing alike.

Hostage (2005)

Continuity mistake: In the final shootout scene, Jeff is holding a Colt 1911 style pistol, which is single action only. This means that it must be cocked prior to firing it the first time, or squeezing the trigger will have no effect. When he is holding his hands up, the hammer is cocked back like it should be, but when the camera zooms in on his face, the hammer is down. When the camera backs out again, the hammer is cocked again.

The Matrix (1999)

Revealing mistake: When Neo stops the bullets being shot at him in mid air and they fall, you can see that there are not grooves in the bullets. As a bullet passes through a barrel, it picks up the impressions of the lands and grooves of the barrel. Since the Matrix is a simulation of our world, including the involved physics, the lack of rifling grooves is an oversight by the special effects team.

Revealing mistake: When Arnold throws the bad guy through the glass door at the dress shop, it shatters a split second prior to him going through it.

Poseidon (2006)

Factual error: When the ballast tank valves open, they open by dropping down, which would be impossible with the pressure of the water pressing against it. Regardless of the domino effect of the water flowing, it's tremendous pressure.

Continuity mistake: When Summer is singing in the park, her hair changes from in front of her shoulder to behind her shoulder in between shots.

Factual error: Throughout the movie, which mainly takes place in the early and mid 90's, the cars that are seen are from the late 90's and early 2000's. The easiest to spot are the taxis, which are the 1998 and above versions of the Ford Crown Victoria.

Continuity mistake: While out to dinner with William, Summer has her wine glass in her hand one minute, and when the shot changes her hands are under the table - too quickly for her to have put the wine down.

Continuity mistake: When the victim is hit by the car, it shows him get run over by the front right wheel of the limo. Later on, the body is "thrown 45 feet" and is ahead of the stopped limo.

The Pacifier (2005)

Revealing mistake: When Shane is fighting the two ninjas, they are armed with expandable batons, which are tubular hardened steel. During the fight sequences you can see the plastic batons bending repeatedly.

Continuity mistake: At the Italian restaurant, Daniel asks for just a touch of cheese on his broccoli. With the camera on the broccoli, Eduardo pours so much cheese on it that it overflows. Off shot you can see him continue to pour, so you'd assume that it would be absolutely saturated and a big mess, but when they pan back to the table, the broccoli has very little, if any, cheese on it.

Other mistake: When Daniel goes into the sushi place and he looks at the sushi that will "make him throw up", it's just rubber bait food.

Other mistake: When the Major shoots the rope out from under the slow soldier, the rounds should have gone through the floor but did not. There aren't even marks on the floor.

Continuity mistake: When Blondie is saved by the mortar shell, and it shows the empty noose, it is completely different than the noose that Blondie had around his neck. The loop that the noose went through to hold it to the beam has changed.

Until Death (2007)

Factual error: During the big shootout at the end, Stowe picks up a Beretta semi-automatic gun after killing the owner, who is trying to reload it. Stowe inserts a magazine, sends the slide forward, and then racks the slide. A complete round should have ejected but did not.

Revealing mistake: Airbags are made out of a super strong fabric material with heavy weaving. There's no way McClane would be able to tear it. You can see the texture difference between McClane's fake airbag and the real passenger side airbag.

Live Free or Die Hard mistake picture

Continuity mistake: In the scene where McClane rebuffs Ferrell for thinking it would be cool to do the firesale, you can see pipes for firehoses right behind McClane. When the shot changes to a long alley shot, the pipes are a good ten feet away, but when it reverts back to a closeup, the pipes are back to right behind McClane.

Factual error: When Smith shoots the first man with his twin .45s, the man flies back about 30-40 feet. In reality, he might fall back a foot or two, but he certainly wouldn't be propelled anywhere by simple bullets.
