Continuity mistake: When Doomsday slams Superman down into the subway, the hole they make in the street is right in the middle of a crossing. But a minute later in the film as civilians are walking up to the hole, there are no lines anywhere around it. Moments later after Jimmy takes a picture of the hole, the shot cuts to a far angle and now the hole is next to the crosswalk lines, and in that shot the stairway entrance to the subway station also vanishes. The road also becomes much wider with more lanes, and the red truck turns around. (00:22:40 - 00:23:25)Quantom X
Continuity mistake: When being shot at by the angry waiter, the right hand door mirror was hit by the rifle shot. A few seconds later a view shows only a very minor hole in the glass, and no damage to the rest of the mirror. Surely a rifle shot would have caused more damage to plastic and chrome trim, almost surely passing right through. (00:30:20)airhead
Continuity mistake: All wide shots of Hrothgar's hall show it in the outer ward of his fortress, about two hundred metres from the towers on the edge of the cliff, with open ground on three sides and an embankment on the fourth. But later several characters are able to step straight out of the hall onto a balcony that overhangs the cliffs and sea below.
Continuity mistake: When Cillian Murphy's character is recording his message prior to entering the 'dead zone', our viewpoint is from within the monitor in front of him. As such, we see the on-screen image he sees, but reversed, floating between our vantage point and his image. At the bottom of the screen are touch-screen function 'buttons', again in reverse, which read (our left to right) 'RECORD', 'SEND', 'DELETE' and 'REVIEW'. But when our view changes to see the screen as we look over his shoulder from behind him, the visible buttons now read (right to left) 'SEND' and 'REVIEW' (he presses 'SEND'). They should be 'SEND' and 'RECORD'. (00:06:15)johnrosa
Continuity mistake: When Chris is in the trailer with Tracy, he walks inside with his towel around the back of his neck. During the scene he takes the towel off, then when we see a shot from behind him later, the towel is still there.
Continuity mistake: In the scene just after the bathroom scene where she dumps the weed into the toilet, Jane writes the smiley in the sky and soon afterwards dumps her purse onto the sidewalk. Her cell phone (which was destroyed in the kitchen incident) falls out among the other items, without a scratch on it.
