Continuity mistake: When Stella is driving in the cable van, the picture seen through her camera shows the view over the steering wheel, but when we see her, the steering wheel is much higher than the camera and would be obscuring the view.

Plot hole: Why does Kristatos bother with the amateurish assassination attempt with the little one-man attack submarine, when he had already taken over the Triana?

Character mistake: When discussing where to look for the St. Georges, and Melina tells that her father saw a diving bell, Bond reasons: "Diving bell - oil exploration - Christatos" But diving bells are not used for oil exploration.

Revealing mistake: In the sleigh scene in Cortina, the closeups are recorded in a studio. The view of the background fits very poorly with the surroundings in the intermittent wide shots, which shows buildings close by, while the background just before showed a wide valley view.

Character mistake: In the ice-hockey scene Bibi says: "They say that he is a defector from East Germany." That fits very poorly with the statement during the biathlon scene, where he is referred to as "The East German Champion".

Suggested correction: Bibi doesn't say "He's a defector from East Germany", she says "They say he's going to defect from East Germany." In other words, she's talking about rumours regarding an event that hasn't happened yet, and may not even happen.

The Sentinel (2006)

Continuity mistake: When Merriweather is shot, the killer is several meters away and down the stairs. But Garrison finds a shell casing right next to the body.

Other mistake: In the opening scene on the freighter, the laser beams track the hand movements of the pirate. First, it is much faster and more precise than what would be possible. Second, why would the SWAT team aim at the pirate's fist, just because he was acting tough?

Continuity mistake: When Stallone is hanging in the door of the seaplane, in the closeups there is water spray all around him, but in the wide shots of the plane, the water spray does not reach the door.

I, Robot (2004)

Plot hole: Sonny hides among the 1000 robots in the big store room. They are all placed in very straight rows. Sonny would not be able to take over another robot's place in the grid (when he starts running we see a large robot-sized gap) without getting another robot to move. And while Will Smith is running around the rows, he would have noticed if the others moved to make room.

Continuity mistake: When Bond opens the crater cover, the ninjas attack. In one shot the ninjas are seen walking on the still-opening cover, but it is not moving.

Continuity mistake: In several shots during the final battle the crater cover is translucent. But if it is made of metal, it can't be translucent.

Continuity mistake: When an attempt to kill Bond by poison is made, a long string hangs from the ceiling. The drop of poison falls on Aki's lips. In the next shot, the string is gone. It would have taken time to pull up again, and it didn't fall on to the bed.

Top Gun (1986)

Continuity mistake: When Maverick and Goose land in the sea by parachute, they are virtually on top of each other. But on the way down they are quite far apart, and would definitely not have landed in exactly the same spot.

Red Eye (2005)

Character mistake: When the plane is landing, and we see out the window that landing is less than 10 seconds away, the captain says: "Cabin crew take your seats." By that point they should have been seated for a long time.

Salt (2010)

Continuity mistake: When Salt walks out of the church she is very dirty from the dust from the explosion. But in the scene in the police car afterwards she (and especially her hair) is completely clean.

The Tourist (2010)

Revealing mistake: The scene where Frank is chased across the roof tops is shot indoors. First, the light and shadows are very bright - but in the outdoors scenes it is cloudy, and there are no clear shadows. Second, the shadows show almost horizontal lighting - a position the sun does not have in Venice in late morning.

The Tourist (2010)

Factual error: When Elise drops Frank off at Venice airport, we see the colorful houses of Venice proper quite close in the background. But Venice airport is on the mainland side of the lagoon, quite far from the Venice islands. So the houses would have been much, much further away.

The Tourist (2010)

Factual error: While dragging Frank after the boat on a rope, Elise is seen pushing the gas handle to full power. The boat speeds up, but not a lot. Later on, we see the boat going much faster. But boats do not have gears, so couldn't suddenly get an extra burst of speed.

The Tourist (2010)

Factual error: In the boat chase on the Canal, Frank turns the wheel on his boat, and the boat turns sharply. But the boat is being dragged and the engine is not running. Turning the wheel will then make very little (or no) difference in its direction. Motorboats turn by the propeller turning, not with a rudder like a sailing boat.

The Tourist (2010)

Factual error: When Frank and Elise arrive in Venice, they sail from the train station to a hotel which is also located on the Grand Canal (from the balcony we see the Rialto Bridge). However just after leaving the station, we see Saint Marc's Square from their boat from the other side of the lagoon. That is very far from the station - and not on the way to that hotel.
