Captain America: The Winter Soldier

Continuity mistake: Nick Fury's black SUV gets hit by several police cars - the driver's airbag deploys and is visible in all shots until the SUV eventually escapes, at which point the airbag has disappeared.


Continuity mistake: After the SHIELD agents have rescued the hostages, Steve begins a fight with one of the terrorists who tells him to take off his helmet. Steve takes it off and drops it beside him, leaving it on the floor. After Steve kicks the terrorist and runs over to him, you'll see in the next shot, that the helmet is still right beside him, despite his run. (00:11:35)

Casual Person

Continuity mistake: When Captain America takes on the plane outside, the concourse behind him gets shot up and he destroys the plane, which crashes. A little while later the strike team leave the base in convoy along the same concourse that got shot up - there's no damage, and no crashed plane.

Continuity mistake: When Zola's algorithm is deployed and begins acquiring targets, we see a "grid" with the targets chosen. On the right, just above the pictures of the targets, there is a line indicating "targets acquired." Then we see the guns and then a counter indicating the amount of targets acquired, from 210,000 and up, but the next grid we see, in the "targets acquired" line says 133,213 and up. Besides, all the grids have the same pictures, but in different order.

Suggested correction: First, nice work spotting that tiny number. However, the number to which you are referring changes four times (not once as you say), each time, starting from zero. It is not a mistake: If you pay attention to the left side of the UI, there are two widgets, respectively called "Global viewpoint" and "Continental viewpoint." Each time the number starts from zero the, viewpoint changes, meaning that these numbers correspond to each viewpoint. The statistical counter, however, increases cumulatively.



Continuity mistake: When Steve leaps from the helicopter and onto the boat, he lands in the water. As soon as he gets on board the boat, he is completely dry. (00:05:00)

Continuity mistake: After the Winter Soldier blows up the car he assumed Romanoff was hiding behind, she sneaks up behind him and kicks the gun out of his hand. When he throws her at one of the cars, the gun is on the road to the left of some yellow lines, next to a car. A few shots later, when the Winter Soldier picks up the gun, the gun and car have both moved - the gun is now right on the lines, the car is still the same distance from it. (01:18:00)

Casual Person

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Nick Fury is showing Steve the new Helicarriers, just as Nick says "The satellites can read a terrorist's DNA before he steps outside the spider hole", the two are shown turning around. Nick is shown turning around almost completely and Steve is shown only turning half way. In the next shot, Nick is suddenly turned only half way, facing Steve. (00:16:20)

Casual Person

Continuity mistake: When Steve and Romanoff are lying against the knocked over blinds after dodging the grenade, there is a box shown with some papers in it between them. The first shot shows a white piece of paper sticking furthest out of the box. Next shot, the furthest piece of paper sticking out of the box is now a peach coloured piece of paper. (00:12:45)

Casual Person

Continuity mistake: On the bridge when the Winter Soldier attacks; when Steve, Natasha, and Sam are in the car stopped, a Hummer rear ends them and starts to push the car. The first shot of the Winter Soldier shows various cars near him. Then a brief shot of Sam, and back to the Winter Soldier and the various cars have changed drastically.


Continuity mistake: When confronting Nick Fury about Black Widow's mission aboard the Lemurian Star, Cap puts his hands on his hips. In the next shot, his hands are down at his sides. The two shots alternate several times, showing the error. (00:14:20)

Continuity mistake: There is a sweat stain on Sam's jumper after he finishes jogging with Steve. As he lies against a tree, the stain is around the neck area and some of it is partway down his jumper. When Steve helps him up, the stain has reduced to just sweat around his neck. (00:01:40)

Casual Person

Continuity mistake: At one point near the beginning of the infiltration of the helicarriers, Captain America's chinstrap has a twist from his right jaw down to where it covers his chin. This is visible in two shots. The next time his right side is shown afterward, the twist is gone. The chinstrap is too tight for it to have flipped on its own accidentally, and the pad which covers his chin is molded so it wouldn't have sat properly on his face even if it had somehow flipped around. There were undoubtedly several prop helmets made, and this one must have been put together incorrectly.

Continuity mistake: When Steve is on the boat, and knocks out all the terrorists, one last terrorist points a gun at him before being shot by Rumlow. In the first shot, the terrorist is standing in front of Steve, but by the next shot, he is suddenly standing behind Steve. This has nothing to do with the camera angles. (00:06:45)

Casual Person

Continuity mistake: After the bus flips, the truck that hit it stops right in front of a Corvette. But when the Winter Soldier is shooting at Romanoff, she takes cover behind a truck. In the wide shot, there is a Monaro, and SUV and a mini-van, but the Corvette is nowhere to be seen. (01:14:50 - 01:15:50)


Continuity mistake: When the Winter Soldier approaches the car before throwing the grenades at it, one shot shows a water trail dripping at the front of the car he is hiding behind. A few seconds later, after Romanoff ambushes him, a wide angle is shown as he throws her at the car and the water trail is no longer there. (01:17:35)

Casual Person

Continuity mistake: When the Winter Soldier is taking down the SHIELD jets, he jumps on one of them and shoots twice at the pilot, however there are 3 bullets holes in the glass. (01:40:35)


Captain America: The Winter Soldier mistake picture

Continuity mistake: When Steve and Romanoff are escaping the mall, Romanoff notices Agent Rumlow on the opposite escalator. The first person in front of him is a man wearing a green jacket. Romanoff kisses Steve, the shot then cuts to Rumlow noticing the kiss, and a woman in a white jumper has appeared in front of him. Things go back in the next shot. (00:54:15)

Casual Person

Continuity mistake: When Baron Wolfgang von Strucker says "We've only scratched the surface and already...", his lips are open. In the next shot, just before he says "there are other facilities doing Hydra's good work around the world", his lips are suddenly closed with no time to do so. This occurs right at the start of the shot and isn't very easy to see, but it is still visible if you look carefully. (02:03:35)

Continuity mistake: When Steve, Romanoff and Agent Hill are watching Nick being operated on, Agent Hill is on the left, followed by Romanoff in the middle and Steve on the right. A couple of shots later, as Romanoff says "Don't do this to me Nick", it is now suddenly Agent Hill in the middle and Romanoff on the left, then a few shots later, it goes back to Romanoff being in the middle and Agent Hill being on the left. (00:36:25 - 00:37:00)

Casual Person

Factual error: During the Nick Fury chase scene that takes place in D.C., several black and white state highway 6 signs are visible. These signs are unique to Ohio. Route 6 goes straight through downtown Cleveland where the scene was filmed. Plus during other chase scenes several Cleveland landmarks are visible in the background. (00:28:30)
