Continuity mistake: At the aquarium, the first shot shows all of the kids behind the glass, with a tall guy on the far right. When the angle changes, there's a big gap with no kids and the tall guy is gone.

Continuity mistake: Before the guards break into the house where the family is with the kid, the front shots show the dog unease. Right before he barks, from an angle from behind he swaps to relaxed. A shot later, from a front shot, the dog swaps back to alert and barking.

Continuity mistake: When the family is with the kid, the father reading the paper and the wall explodes, Thomas jumps to the left and covers his head with both arms. From the opposite angle, only one arm is raised, the other one is extended and on top of the newspaper.

Continuity mistake: After Thomas, the baby and Atlanna have their picture taken, Thomas is reading a newspaper. The position of his left hand is inconsistent between shots.

Other mistake: Artistic license via CGI physics is taken for all the characters in the water to keep their hair from ever flowing over their faces, no matter how long or how the currents might affect their hairstyles. When characters emerge out of the water, their hair remains nearly unaffected.

Revealing mistake: When Orm presents the weapons to Manta as a water hologram, Manta walks right through the hologram with half of his body. This arm passes through the hologram made of water and even makes a splash sound. However, there is not a single drop of water on Manta's completely dry clothing after this.

Continuity mistake: After Arthur puts his father in the truck after the bar, we see Mera emerging from the water from the left of screen, right of the truck, off to the side casually walking up. When the camera changes we hear a splash and suddenly Mera is on the dock behind the truck dripping water. This is showing that she was walking up from the side, suddenly went back into the water, only to jump back out again at a different spot on the dock.

Other mistake: While Thomas lifts Atlanna she is unconscious but she is still holding the trident with her left hand.


Continuity mistake: At the bar, when the bullies ask Aquaman if he's the fish boy from TV, he faces to the right. Angle changes and he's now facing straight, only to repeat the movement.

Continuity mistake: When the bullies are nagging Arthur at the aquarium and the shark appears, the distance between the bullies is inconsistent between shots.

Continuity mistake: Right when the guards enter the home and the walls explode, Arthur swaps between having short curly hair to it being very long and straight.

Arthur Curry: My parents were of two different worlds, and I was a product of the love that they shared. A son of land, and a son of the seas.
