The Statement (2003)

Continuity mistake: When Michael Caine kills the assassin, he goes to check the body and two blood spots are visible to the right of the door handle on the white car. In the shot when Michael is back in the car and driving off, the blood spots are nowhere to be seen. (00:11:56 - 00:14:22)

House of Wax (2005)

House of Wax mistake picture

Continuity mistake: At the beginning of the scene when Paige and Blake are alone in the tent, there is a shot of Blake's cell phone sat atop a CD case, with the top line of the display showing the date and time and "NewVoiceMessage" below it. When the music stops and Blake runs out of the tent, the phone is seen in a different orientation on the CD case but still has the date/time as the top line. After Blake restarts the music, he then picks the phone up, which is still in its new position but no longer has the date/time displayed on the top line. (01:08:10 - 01:09:45)

Continuity mistake: [Blu-ray] When Garth runs back downstairs to the kitchen, where Mandy was asleep, she is just waking up when he comes back in. As he enters the room, she is resting her left elbow on the table, using her left hand to smooth her hair and her right hand is covering her nose. In the next shot she is suddenly slouched to her right, with her right elbow resting on the table, leaning her head in her right hand; her left arm is lying across the table and she's holding her right arm with her left hand. Her vest is also hanging down, inside her blouse, showing a lot more cleavage than the previous shot. (01:07:45)

Big Red One (1980)

Continuity mistake: At the concentration camp, Mark Hamill opens an incinerator door, several doors along the row, and repeatedly shoots the German hiding inside. As we are looking out from inside the incinerator Lee Marvin appears behind him and says "I think you got him". The shot changes to a wide view outside but they are now looking in a different door - one of the first ones in the row.

Jurassic Park (1993)

Continuity mistake: At the site of the T-Rex attack, Ellie and Muldoon help the injured Dr. Malcolm into the back of the Jeep, before Ellie goes looking for the other Explorer. Muldoon hears the T-Rex approaching and shouts "Ellie, come on!" but Ellie spots the Explorer over the wall and (in the next shot) she and Muldoon (heard but unseen except for his torch beam) have left Dr. Malcolm alone, somehow descended the high wall, and are running up to the wrecked Explorer. There is no implied time gap between the shots as they could hear the T-Rex was approaching before they did (or did not) descend the wall and later the T-Rex is almost at the Jeep (now in a different location) and Dr. Malcolm is urgently calling them back.

Continuity mistake: Ellie, Muldoon & Dr. Malcolm are accelerating away from the T-Rex after having found the other Explorer. Just after Muldoon shouts "Bloody move!" and is looking at the gear stick, the shot changes and he is suddenly looking over his shoulder. (01:17:45)

Continuity mistake: Just after Timmy puts the goggles on and climbs into the back with Lex she says, "don't scare me" and turns to face him as he crawls into the boot. In the next shot she is immediately facing in completely the opposite direction, looking through the window. This is just before Timmy says, "oh cool, night vision". (00:58:35)

Jurassic Park (1993)

Jurassic Park mistake picture

Continuity mistake: At the start of the Badlands sequence, the palaeontologists are brushing-out a dinosaur skeleton. In the close-up shot, they are working on the head (someone 'picks its nose') and one of them has a red-handled brush. When we cut to a wide shot, there is only one person working on the head (the nose is still being brushed) and there is no red-handled brush in sight. (00:05:30)
