Zero Tolerance picture

Continuity mistake: In the film Jeff Douglas is out to kill the five leading kingpins of "the Hand". After he gets the first three, he goes after the last two who are hiding together. But the two fall out and one (Manter) shoots the other one (Kowalski) dead. Later, when he catches up with Manter, he doesn't kill him but lets him live to face justice (though he does die at the end). After catching Manter, he acts like it is the end of his "quest", yet does not know that Kowalski is already dead, and therefore should be out looking for him, not stopping at Manter's capture.

The Shadow picture

Continuity mistake: In the water tank sequence Cranston dives to the bullet holes to get air. When he dives down there is a camera shot looking up at him from the bottom of the tank showing that there is plenty of air left at the top, no doubt left there so that the actor would not drown. And; for the sealed tank to fill completely there must have been a way for air to escape rapidly from the top. When the tank was full water kept pouring in and would have escaped the same way. When Margo arrives there is no water coming off the top of the tank.

Suggested correction: The tank is to test pressure. Had water been escaping so would have Cranston.
