The Suicide Squad

Continuity mistake: Bloodsport is talking to his daughter about her crime. During the conversation, the continuity between shot and reverse gets jumpy at times; for instance when he mentions that she "dragged out the paternity test" Idris Elba stretches out his arm only to be still when his daughter screams at him. Later on he reminds her he told her to do 'her thing' and gesticulates with the right hand, but his arm is still and low in the next shot. (00:00:17 - 00:16:50)

Continuity mistake: At the beginning of the movie, a goldfinch lands in the corner of the prison courtyard. There's a wet/mouldy area in the corner that is suddenly much smaller in the following close-up. (00:01:10)

Continuity mistake: Savant is taking a look at the rest of the team. The blonde Blackguard is goofing off with the guard closest to him as he shimmies. Closer angle, he puts his hand on the gun on his left PC. Next shot, and he's back swaying with both arms down. (00:02:40)

Continuity mistake: On the way to the airdrop, Blackguard asks the others "Is this thing a dog?" Next to him, TDK has his hand in his lap to a fist in one angle, palm down on his thigh in the next. (00:05:20)

Continuity mistake: Blackguard is panicking because of 'the werewolf' but Rick Flag interjects that he's 'harmless'. He then has to add that he's not -that - harmless, having slaughtered a couple dozens of kids; when the camera angle changes before he says that, the actors have changed positions. For instance, Margot Robbie had her hands clasped together before her chest, then she has them in her lap. (00:05:45)

Continuity mistake: Once he reassured the crew about Weasel, Flag orders everyone to get in the position for the paradrop. He motions towards them bringing his hand down, which is operating a switch above him in the next shot. (00:05:55)

Continuity mistake: Amanda Waller told Flag that they cannot retreat from the beach. Harley chirps "Okie dok" as a response; in the first shot she is putting her right hand on the weapon, but in the next she is out of focus in the foreground with the same hand on her earpiece. (00:09:15)

Continuity mistake: In the suicide mission on the beach, Flag makes a run for it behind Harley who just ducked behind a rock. Harley is in a dark corner; Flag dives by her, and the camera angle changes showing her into the spotlight. Sane later when TDK's arms are floating and pass by them in bright light. (00:09:55)

Continuity mistake: Dubois is scrubbing the floor as Amanda Waller exposits to her team of analysts who is he. The rag on top of the alcohol bottle reaches the level of liquid in some shots, not in Waller's semi-POV. (00:16:00)

Sammo Premium member

Continuity mistake: Dubois is holding Waller at penpoint, but when he comments sarcastically "A little extreme?" Idris Elba is pulling the arm back. Yet in the next shot the pen is still pointed at her jugular. (00:18:55)

Suggested correction: He doesn't move his arm back. It seems he's about to but not an error.

Continuity mistake: Peacemaker and Bloodsport are following Amanda Waller through the female section. There are two girls at the table in the center, one with patchwork colorful skin, the other whistling at them. When it cuts to a close-up, neither is in the appropriate position; the whistler's hand dropped and the Kaleidoscope, who already got up, still has her forearms on the table. (00:20:40)

Continuity mistake: When Amanda Waller powerpoints Gaius Grieves to the team, from behind she is holding the clicker shoulder-high. Her arm is more outstretched and raised in the wider angle. (00:23:25)

Continuity mistake: Briefing scene, Ratcatcher 2 raises her hand to ask her question. Notice her right hand, open on top of her thigh. Close-up, and her hand is closed and to the inner side of the thigh. The hand is back in its original position when the first angle is used again. (00:23:45)

Continuity mistake: Harley slaps the now dead Javelin in the face asking frantically about his incomplete dying words. Literally one moment her hand is on his cheek, the next is mid-length on the shaft of his weapon. (00:26:50)

Sammo Premium member

Continuity mistake: When the team gets to the rebel leader's tent unnoticed after a patently absurd massacre, Alice Braga is holding her cup with both hands around it. Reverse shot, and she has one hand on the top and one on the bottom. (00:36:00)

Sammo Premium member

Continuity mistake: When Harley bursts out in a Mario Kart-themed insult at the Cortomaltesians, the braid in front of her shoulder is the left one and not the right one. (00:41:00)

Sammo Premium member

Continuity mistake: Look at the overhead shot of the limo approaching the Presidential palace. The gates including the sandbags where military men are stationed are in the shade. We see then a valet open the door for Margot Robbie, and the spot is in the sun. (00:41:35)

Sammo Premium member

Continuity mistake: When the valet tells Harley that the president wants to see her, the guard behind Harley is looking towards her. For her response, he's facing away from her, and her facial expression is different as well. (00:42:00)

Sammo Premium member

Continuity mistake: El Presidente Luna stops moving and bleeds from his mouth with his palm against the floor. He's wide-eyed dead and motionless, but next time we see him after Harley stops musing over how well-endowed he was, his hand is turned around, palm up. (00:48:35)

Sammo Premium member

Continuity mistake: Ratcatcher 2 tries on some round glasses holding the box with her thumb on the top of the side, into the opening. Wider shots have her hand placed towards the bottom. (00:53:35)

Sammo Premium member

Other mistake: Despite being a deadly marksman (only a few minutes earlier in the movie he stopped a bullet directed at him shooting it off the air), Bloodsport snipes several times at the huge kaiju featuring a massive eye in the central part of its body, and never once hits it. (01:51:45)
