300 picture

Revealing mistake: In the first major battle between the 300 Spartans and the Persians, Leonidas is slaughtering the Persians and the speed of the scene goes from slow motion to fast motion, you see very realistic CGI blood. When the blood hits the the ground it suddenly disappears. This happens many times during this long and awesome scene.

Deja Vu picture

Revealing mistake: When the Bronco is underwater at the end of the movie, Claire's hands are tied to the steering wheel. Doug rips the steering wheel off. Anyone who has worked on cars knows you need a puller to get a steering wheel off. Also, the steering wheel is gone when Claire swims to the surface.

Apocalypto picture

Revealing mistake: Watch closely when the first two 'slaves' run for their freedom amidst flying spears. When Jaguar Paw's friend (the chunky fellow) gets speared, it is a 'through the armpit' effect. When he's gasping for breath in the next shot, the entry of the spear is actually more in the middle of his chest.

Superman Returns picture

Revealing mistake: Just before the end credits, as Superman is flying past Metropolis and into space, watch the car headlights in the background. The background shot is blatantly sped-up by a large amount, as all of the cars appear to be travelling at huge speeds, even in a traffic jam.

Mission: Impossible 3 picture

Revealing mistake: In the helicopter chase Ethan and Lindsey (and the defibrillator) are just sitting on the floor of the helicopter while it is doing very radical moves. They would have been thrown around.

Running Scared picture

Revealing mistake: The money that the two gang members are counting in the opening view of the hotel room scene is obviously fake. Notice how white the bills are, when they should be greener and have more of the random anti-counterfeit features. (00:02:00)

Underworld: Evolution pictureUnderworld: Evolution mistake picture

Revealing mistake: When Selene falls into the tunnels of Tanis's lair where the lycans are, you can see the pad she lands on. It's almost passed off as falling snow, but watch how as she lands the 'ground' squeezes like a pillow. This was pointed out in the director's commentary. (00:44:00)

The Marine picture

Revealing mistake: Watch carefully after Angela is thrown through the windshield of the bus. There is a shot of diamonds and blood-stained glass scattering on the floor. But in reality, there is a shot of plain diamonds falling and the bloody glass is faded in during the middle of the shot. Most visible on the edges of the screen, where the pieces emerge from nowhere.

Revealing mistake: In the balcony in Havana, when Sonny and Isabella are talking about her old house, the shoreline view is not nearly similar to the real "Malecon" in Vedado, Havana.
