Continuity mistake: When they are in the car with heavy rain, you can see the pedestrians are NOT using umbrellas or wearing raincoats. It’s also raining far harder on the left of the car than the right. In addition, Somerset is turning the wheel to the right, and yet they’re driving in a straight line. (00:12:10)

Continuity mistake: When the "lust" guy is being interviewed, Morgan Freeman throws a photo down on the table. He throws it such that from the interviewee's point of view it should be angled with the top side to the left, or fairly straight, but when we see a close-up of it landing it's angled with the top to the right.

Revealing mistake: Sloth is shown with three "arms." It's most easily noticed after he wakes up. His right arm is bent at the elbow, pointing to the ceiling, his left arm is pressed tightly to his left side between his torso and the jacket used to conceal the upper part of the prosthesis, and his third "arm", the prosthesis, is bent at the elbow, hanging halfway off the bed, and pointing to the left of his body. It has several large, protruding "veins" in it and the stump where the hand should be is off-screen.

Trivia: Sloth actually has three arms. See the screen shot at http://img14.imageshack.us/img14/2686/nouvelleimagem.png You can see his real arm next to him and the fake one on the right. Furthermore, when the cops first see him, his hurt arm is in a kind of shirt.

Question: How is Sloth, a decomposed corpse, able to miraculously come back to life?

Answer: He never technically comes back to life. Apparently, he digressed into a coma like state, at some point he becomes startled and brain activity comes back on some sort of primitive defense level. From what the doctor says later on, there's no chance at all he'll survive, he's basically just a bundle of reflexes.
