X-Men 3 picture

Other mistake: When Warren/Angel refuses the cure and spreads his wings, he is looking to the left of the screen at his father. In the reflection of Dr. Kavita Rao's glasses the shot of him is not reversed; he is still looking to the left of the screen when he should in fact be looking to the right. (00:33:00)

Android Apocalypse picture

Other mistake: When Joey Lawrence gets his hand cut off by the human, he wakes up to find his arm where his hand used to be wrapped in some kind of black cloth. It's obviously his hand that is wrapped up because the wrap sticks out too far to be only wrapping his wrist. Plus it is also bulky which gives away the hand underneath.

Inside Man picture

Other mistake: When Washington went back to his room at the end just before he pulls the diamond out of his pocket. He unloads his Glock. The magazine doesn't have any bullets in it and there wasn't any noise of a bullet falling out of the chamber as he moves the slide back.

The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift picture

Other mistake: Throughout the movie we see the mustang rolling chassis in the garage. This is a rolling chassis of a 1967 Shelby mustang gt 500/350. The main ways to realize this are that the car has the cut outs in the front for the 2 fog lights that the Shelby had and that the back end has a spoiler which is built into the body. However the car they do all the driving with is a base model 1967 mustang fastback. While a new grille would've covered up the fog-light cutout, the regular fastbacks didn't have the built into the body spoiler like the Shelby's did. Removing the built in spoiler and making it as smooth as it was would've taken way too much time and supplies. It also wouldn't have served any benefit. You could argue they were trying to eliminate down-force on the back but the spoiler was only about 2 inches, it wouldn't have helped. The directors did this to avoid wrecking the much more rare Shelby mustang.

16 Blocks picture16 Blocks mistake picture

Other mistake: When Bruce and Mos Def are running through the alley near the beginning, they run past a Chinese man who slams a dumpster lid shut. Once Bruce pulls out his gun to look back, that same man starts running because he gets scared. In the next shot, he continues running, but soon stops as if he thinks filming is over. This is visible right before the camera pans to the right.

Firewall picture

Other mistake: In the scene where Mary Lynn Rajskub is driving Harrison Ford around, she is told at the beginning of the scene to "pop the clutch", signifying that she is driving a manual transmission vehicle. However, during the drive, she never removes her hands from the steering wheel to shift gears.

Casino Royale picture

Other mistake: During the chase with the fuel truck at the Miami airport, Bond depresses the brakes, which apparently aren't working, and the truck rolls on. Two problems: first, after almost hitting the plane and sliding sideways, the brakes skid to a halt and you can hear air discharging from the brake system. Which brings up the second problem: since the truck is air brake equipped, there is no way it would have continued rolling if the brakes were malfunctioning. Part of the air brake system on all trucks since 1974, have a safety feature which "dynamite" the brakes if there is no air pressure in the system. This locks up the brakes with the spring brake system, making the truck stop. The truck was newer than 1974, meaning it would have had the CVSS safety braking system from the manufacturer, and would have skidded to a stop if there was no air in the system.

The Da Vinci Code picture

Other mistake: During the scene where Tom Hanks brings Sophie to his colleague's house in England, there is a chess board. The chess board is incorrectly set up as any chess player will tell you that the white king belongs on the fifth square from the left. In the shot, the white king is one the fourth square from the left, ie. he is switched with where the queen should be. Teabing would definitely know how to set the board up properly.

Stay Alive picture

Other mistake: When the main guy and the blond-haired woman investigate the house of the guy who got hanged in the very first scene, October goes outside to smoke. She is seen in a construction site. Later, when they go to find October, we discover that the site is way down the street. I don't know why she decided to stray so far from the house to the site.

Final Destination 3 picture

Other mistake: When Wendy and Kevin are grabbing lunch, just before Frankie Cheeks dies, the guy asks to take their orders (via the microphone) Wendy and Kevin never reply throughout the rest of the scene, and they are at the restaurant for at least another 2-3 minutes (during the whole of Frankie's death sequence) The guy working at the restaurant must be extremely patient not to ask for their orders again.

The Good Shepherd picture

Other mistake: During the 25 years time span of the movie, all of the characters age noticeably except for Clover and Damon. He, miraculously, goes through his teens, 20s and up to his late 40s gaining just a couple of gray hairs and a few wrinkles around his mouth, plus the same young voice from the early days.

When A Stranger Calls picture

Other mistake: After the stranger calls Jill in the guest house, she celebrates the fact that she kept him on the line for longer than a minute. However, this conversation was significantly shorter than their last, and in reality it only clocks in at around twenty seconds.

The Prestige picture

Other mistake: This mistake occurs when Borden crashes Angier's act. Borden emerges from the trick door for the Transported Man trick, feigns surprise, and then "discovers" the bound and gagged double suspended above the stage. When Borden says "Ah, the Great Danton" you can see the ring and pinkie fingers on his left hand moving, even though he had already lost them by this time in the movie. We know that it has to be after the time BOTH twins lost their fingers because Olivia observed Borden's trick and says that "it is the same man" because she was fooled by both Bordens having their gloves stuffed.

Desperation picture

Other mistake: When David finds the bodies in the station and the husband swinging from the fan, there are no bullet holes in his back, but there was blood on the wall behind him when he was shot.

Saw III picture

Other mistake: After Jeff gets the key from the Rack trap room, the shotgun fires and hits the judge. He is standing with the shotgun to his right, yet he is hit on the left side of his face. There is also an inconsistency with the timing. The gun fires, then the actor turns to reveal the wound on the left side of his face. It's easier (but in no way required) to see the glaring mistake with slow motion.
