Saw III (2006)

Continuity mistake: When Kerry is talking to Rigg and the detective she is almost directly in front of the door. When the other girl says "You won't believe this, we got the tape out clean" the camera pans around and you can see that Kerry is now in front of the chalk boards. (00:11:05)

Saw III (2006)

Continuity mistake: The knot and string position on the tape player is different during the close up of it on "The Rack" guy's chest than it is during the far away shots.

Saw III (2006)

Continuity mistake: The guy that is in chains stands up, looks around and takes in what he sees. There's a shot of him from the front and his hands are semi-clenched in FRONT of him, around waist level. The shot cuts to behind him and his hands are a good 4 or 5 inches OUTSIDE of his hips. (00:06:35)

Saw III (2006)

Continuity mistake: While Jeff is contemplating burning his son's possessions his hair constantly changes from messed up and down, to pushed up and away from his face. One of the shots you can see Jeff put his hand to his forehead in agony, so this explains that part of the hair change, but the changes happen several times during the same scene.

Saw III (2006)

Continuity mistake: When Kerry is sneaking up to the door, you can see on the TV that she raises her gun up to her chest, but then the shot cuts away (instant cut) and she's still aiming the gun at the closet. (00:13:00)

Saw III (2006)

Continuity mistake: When the tape player says "The key is among your son's possessions" Jeff is standing in front of the opening between the bars leading down to the ladder, and he takes a few steps towards the incinerator (his left). The screen cuts back to Jeff and you can see in the lower left-hand corner of the screen that Jeff is still standing in front of that opening between the bars. (00:56:10)

Saw III (2006)

Continuity mistake: A little bit after you first see Jeff there is a shot of Amanda looking into Jigsaw's room. Lynn is telling Jigsaw to look at her. The pillow is aboutthree-quarters of the way down Jigsaw's head, almost down to his neck. The shot cuts to a closer view of him and now the pillow in a good 8-10 inches higher on his head, up past his ears. (00:36:20)

Saw III (2006)

Continuity mistake: After Lynn gets shot her position against the wall changes between the far away and close-up shots. (look at the poster she's leaning against for a reference point, in the far away shot her head is between the 2 legs on the left, but in the close-up her head is on the very left leg and you can easily see the right leg.).

Saw III (2006)

Continuity mistake: Jigsaw gets "blood" all over the top and sides of the lid of phosphorus paint, yet there is hardly any "blood" on it when he throws it in his bag.

Saw III (2006)

Continuity mistake: The blood stains (streams) on Jigsaw's chest constantly change after Jeff slices his neck. Sometimes the only blood stain is a trail that goes directly down the side of his hospital gown, other times it's halfway down his chest. The shots constantly go back and forth, so it's not just the blood flowing down his chest.

Saw III (2006)

Continuity mistake: After examining Jigsaw, Lynn tells Amanda that he needs to go to a hospital. Amanda grabs Lynn's hair and pulls Lynn towards her to yell at her. In the shots of Amanda's face you can see that their foreheads are touching, but in the shots of Lynn's face their temples are the only thing that is touching. (00:37:25)

Saw III (2006)

Continuity mistake: When Jigsaw is in the process of passing out (after surgery) Lynn's hands move off the bed, back on, then off again, then back on (it wasn't just her moving them naturally, they were in the EXACT same positions each time they were back on the bed). (01:04:00)

Saw III (2006)

Continuity mistake: When Lynn first gets rolled into Jigsaw's room she has a few strands of her hair in the corner of her mouth. The strands appear and disappear during the next few shots.

Saw III (2006)

Continuity mistake: Kerry wipes off the steamed up mirror and sees Eric in the reflection, she gasps and turns around. She looks back at the mirror and you can see that the hand wipe marks where she wiped the steam off are completely different. (00:11:45)

Saw III (2006)

Revealing mistake: After Tony rips his right hand from the chain you can see that the wound doesn't go all the way down to between his fingers, it stop about 1/2 an inch from the webbing of the fingers. The only way to get the chain out oh his hand was to completely rip it out between his fingers, the wound should have gone all the way out. (somewhat difficult to see, but just look carefully [slow-mo helps, but it NOT required to see this mistake]). (00:08:40)

Spider-Man 3 (2007)

Continuity mistake: At the end of the movie MJ is holding onto Harry's hand with both of her hands. There's a quick cut back to a view from farther away. Peter and Harry are in the same positions, but one of MJ's hands has instantly moved down around Harry's chest.

Spider-Man 3 (2007)

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Gwen sees Peter in the restaurant she places one hand on his shoulder. The camera cuts to Gwen's face and she has both hands clasped together in the shot. The shot cuts back out and her hand is instantly down on Peter's shoulder. It cuts back to Gwen one more time and both of her hands are back up near her face.

Saw (2004)

Continuity mistake: Jigsaw's thumb moves between shots after Adam gets the mini cassette recorder out of his hands. You can see Jigsaw's thumb, in the closeup shot, slide down to a position where it's lying horizontal and flat on the floor as the mini cassette recorder is being slid out of his hand. In the next shot, an overhead, you can see that his thumb has moved and is now more curled and in a more vertical position to where just the tip is touching the floor. Jigsaw isn't dead, so he could have moved, but this shot is an *instant* cut, he had no time to move.
