Continuity mistake: (Spoiler Alert) the day after Hancock finds out that Mary also has powers, he stabs her with a large fork with two pointy ends. As expected, they do not puncture her skin. The pointy ends bend toward each other, making a triangle shape. But in the next shot, when Mary snatches it from his hand, the tips are no longer in a triangle shape, just bent the wrong way a little. Mary snatches it away by the handle, so we know that she could not have taken it by the points and bent it.

Continuity mistake: In the end, when Aaron and his parents are walking at the fun fair, they are holding an ice cream. The brown Italian ice cream of the boy changes from right hand to left hand between shots.

Continuity mistake: As Hancock enters Ray's house through the hole in the wall, you can see Hancock is not wearing anything around his neck. As this scene progresses, his gold eagle chain is visible at times.

Continuity mistake: In the scene when Mary visits Hancock for the first time at his house, she arrives from the air and crashes down on the ground, after a discussion inside they both walk outside together and Mary is shown getting into a car. In the next shot shown from above the house the car has disappeared and they both fly into the air.

Suggested correction: No, we see her drive up in the car, not fly in. But you are right that when we see them take off the car is missing.

You must have seen a different version of the movie I saw her land there, it's on Netflix.

You're right. I just saw the version on Netflix and she flies in, while the version from disc I have shows her drive up with a minute of dialog between them next to the car that is not in the Netflix version. I find it very surprising that there are two versions with that major of a difference.

An extended cut was released on DVD and Blu-Ray which has a couple extra scenes as well as modified scenes (including Mary driving to Hancock's). Netflix would have shown the theatrical cut version. (Or if I had to venture a guess, the UK release version as Netflix has a tendency to use those versions for some reason).

Question: I'm not sure if I was seeing things but during the fight between Hancock and Mary, when it goes all windy and stormy, at one point it cuts to some people who are screaming and running away. I thought I saw a figure that appears to be made out of rocks or similar material and about 10 foot tall, it wasn't our hero or heroine as they were not in that scene so what on earth was it?

Answer: I saw it, too, and wondered. He's a street performer in L.A. that just happened to be around during filming. See: http://io9.com/5023487/hancock-giant-robot-mystery-++-solved
