Freedom Fighters: The Ray

Continuity mistake: After righting for a bit, Overgirl and The Ray land on a street and she asks him why is he fighting for a world that's not his. In the wide shot, he is standing so his whole body is facing towards her. When it cuts to a close up, he's suddenly turned to the side with his head looking at her. (01:05:00)

Continuity mistake: As Ray is giving a speech to the Resistance members on Earth X, one blond haired soldier is looking up at him and then smiles. It then cuts to a view of a different soldier with the blond guy still in the frame and instantly he is no longer smiling. (01:00:20)

Continuity mistake: Ray runs into his room to find Overgirl holding Red Tornado's cortex in her hand. A couple of shots later after she taunts him, she has her hands down at her sides with her fists balled and the cortex is missing. Only to appear in her hand again a couple of shots later for Ray to take. Her hand is too small, and the cortex too large for her to have simply just concealed it in her fist in the shot where it's missing. (00:50:40)

Continuity mistake: In the city as the heroes are fighting a giant robot, The Ray leads the robot into Green Arrow's web of beam arrows and it gets stuck, allowing them to attack it. The robot is stuck facing the beam web with its back clear. When The Ray blasts it hard from above and the robot falls backwards, the beams are suddenly on its back. (00:44:40)

Other mistake: After Ray patches up his shoulder from being shot, he heads out answering a call from Jacob. As he's talking he gets hit in the neck by a sleep dart and his phone is shown. The screen still shows an incoming call, rather than one in progress. (00:38:20)

Continuity mistake: Back at the bar, the table to the right of Ray and John where Ray's future boyfriend, Jacob, is sitting has a light sitting on it. The light is right in the center of the table. Then after John points to them guy sat that table and it shows them from a different angle, the light is suddenly closer to the edge and towards the right. (00:25:30)

Continuity mistake: When Ray starts to levitate in John's house, he looks down and he is hovering right above the table with the couch to his right. In the next shot, the table has suddenly vanished and it's now showing that the wall across from the couch with the TV and chair are on his right. (00:20:25)

Continuity mistake: After The Ray from Earth X comes and gives his powers to Ray, Ray goes to John's house and is telling him the story. The establishing shot is of Red Tornado's cortex sitting directly on the wood of the table, but when the camera jump cuts to higher up at them talking, the cortex is suddenly sitting on a book on the table.Then when Ray sits down on the couch next to John, the books have vanished and the cortex is just sitting on the wood again.

Continuity mistake: Ray and his friends are trying to talk to the City Councilman when they get the news that he's shutting down their department. There is a phone on the table and in the close ups of the boss, there is still enough of the table shown that the phone should be visible. But it's gone in these shots. (00:13:05)

Continuity mistake: Overgirl kills Dollman by blowing a huge hole through his chest with her laser vision, and he falls back behind the other Freedom Fighters. They turn to look at her which would put him directly behind them. As Overgirl is hovering down and confronting them it cuts to a shot of them from in front, and Dollman's body has vanished from behind them. (00:08:45)

Continuity mistake: The Ray destroys a tank and says "Scratch one tank" as the camera pans up to show The Ray, Red Tornado and Black Condor hovering above the tank. All three of them are facing the same direction down the street. But then it cuts to a close up from over Red Tornado's shoulder and suddenly he's the only one facing the same direction. The Ray and Black Condor are suddenly turned 90° to the right facing the direction that Red Tornado is. (00:03:30)

Continuity mistake: On a bridge where Phantom Lady and Dollman are, a tank plows over a destroyed half track and takes positions with Nazi soldiers on either side of it, but none are in front of it. When it jump cuts to a close up suddenly two Nazis are standing right in front of the tank firing. (00:02:45)

Continuity mistake: After Phantom Lady tells the Freedom Fighters to get airborne, the film cuts to a view of some civilians running for their lives down a street. The two in the front, a guy in a beanie and a woman carrying a baby are the only two that stay the same when it cuts to a different angle. In the close up of these two, every single person around them running changes to completely different people in different clothing. (00:02:00)

Revealing mistake: When The Ray lands on the ground regrouping with the other Freedom Fighters, there is a bridge behind him with many civilians walking in the background. The animators took an obvious shortcut here as the civilians in the background just consist of the sprites of about 5-7 different people just repeated over and over again all in their same poses on each copy as they move. One especially noticeable one is a kid walking in an olive gray shirt with his arms up right next to himself over and over again. (00:01:45)

Plot hole: When The Ray is injured on Earth X and has Red Tornado's cortex, he escapes by Vibe sending him into a portal to safety. However it is evident that Vibe doesn't know where he sent The Ray or where he would be going as later he's trying hard, searching the multiverse for him. Yet somehow The Ray is able to go across universes and winds up coming out right at Earth 1's Ray's feet to transfer his powers over to Ray and give him the Cortex. This makes no sense. The Ray can't control Vibe's powers or where he sends him, so he would have had no way of making himself exit the portal in Ray's back yard. And if Vibe sent him there on purpose, he wouldn't have been struggling to figure out where he went. The only way it makes sense at all is for it to be the most massive co-incidence possibly imaginable where he accidentally was sent to another universe and happen to come out right at the feet of that universe' version of himself. None of it adds up. (00:09:50 - 00:16:50)

[Red Tornado's hologram appears.]
John Trujillo: Wait wait wait wait! What's going on, Ray!?
Ray Terrill: How should I know?
John Trujillo: It's your weirdo paper weight from crazy town! This is exactly what you should know.

More quotes from Freedom Fighters: The Ray

Question: If Overgirl is Supergirl from Earth X, and Supergirl gets her powers the same way that Superman does, from sunlight, then how is The Ray, whose powers are based on using yellow light, able to hurt her with his powers? Wouldn't his blasts help her?

Quantom X Premium member

Answer: My understanding is the Ray uses pure light for his powers while Superman and Supergirl get their power from the solar energy of a yellow sun, not yellow light.

I see. But if it was from pure light, wouldn't his powers have a white glow and not a yellow glow?

Quantom X Premium member

Most likely just a styling choice. I just know the basics details of his powers and not sure why it comes out yellow (or if it's even stated.) Perhaps for the the same reason the sun appears yellow, short wavelength light becomes scattered.
