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)

300 (2006)

Revealing mistake: Leonidas gets cut over his eye during his battle with the Uber Immortal. During several close-ups of Leonidas after the battle you can easily see that the "cut" below his eye is nothing more than a red line. Doesn't look anything like a cut or scratch.

Saw III (2006)

Revealing mistake: Look at Matthews' toes as soon as he's done breaking his ankle, it's obvious that it's a fake foot. If you shine a flashlight through your toes, or fingers, it will shine most brightly through the edges of them because in the middle there's a bone to block the passage of light. The light shines right through Matthews' toes, and it's a solid color, obvious that there's nothing inside to block the passage of light. While he did break several bones in his foot to escape, it is unlikely that he took time to break his toes as there is no reason to, the shackle will slide off unbroken toes as well as broken ones. Also, even if he did break his toes, the broken pieces would still be in his foot and still block the light. It's a fake foot. (00:04:15)

Saw III (2006)

Revealing mistake: Jeff tears a big chunk out of his face, but it never really bleeds out very much. It's pretty obvious that it's not just a layer of skin, you can see that there's a pretty big hunk of skin gone. At one point in the movie it's completely covered in blood, but only inside of the area of the tear. It should, at the very least, ooze quite a lot and drip something down his face, yet the area around the wound is always free from blood.

Revealing mistake: On the sand during the sword fight after the chest is found, a shot from above shows the three men having two shadows each, revealing the presence of on-set lighting.
