Factual error: When Mr. Creedy is firing his revolver at V after his men have been killed, the camera, positioned presumably inside the revolver behind the cylinder, shows two empty chambers out of six total, but Creedy eventually fires 5 shots. During this same sequence one of the empty chambers lines up with the barrel, but Creedy's gun somehow fires. Also, if the camera is behind the cylinder, the chambers would still have loaded cartridges or shell casings in them, they wouldn't be empty. (02:12:00)

Trivia: In one of the trailers for this movie (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QHWbzrCJ4nE), Michelle (Sigourney Weaver) delivers the lines, "A thinking robot could be the end of mankind. Destroy that robot! Burn it to ash." This is possibly a reference to her role in Alien (1979) where a thinking robot (named Ash) protected the alien at the expense of the "expendable" crew.

Continuity mistake: In the bar, Pike meets up with Kirk to tell him that they gave him the Enterprise. When Pike tells Kirk that Spock has been reassigned to the Bradbury, Kirk pours liquor into his glass, nearly covering the big round ice cube. When Kirk lifts the glass from the bar, half of the liquor instantly disappears. (00:19:20)
Continuity mistake: Early in the film Tom brings Nick to meet with his mistress Myrtle - and set Nick up for some drinking and debauchery. While waiting for Tom to come out of the bedroom Nick is sitting in a small parlor with Myrtle's dog. In the first wide shot we see the dog licking an empty plate. Cut to an expression shot of Nick staring awkwardly, then a close-up of the dog - but now a small pile of dog food has appeared on the right side of the plate. Another reaction shot of Nick, then back to the dog - but the food has moved to the left side of his plate.
Factual error: The movie takes place in the summer of 1922. They played Rhapsody in Blue, which wasn't written till 1924. The bandleader is obviously Cab Calloway. Cab Calloway's first recordings with the Missourians weren't until 1928. "Oh! You Have No Idea" also wasn't recorded until 1928, and it was sung by Sophie Tucker, not Josephine Baker (although they do credit Ms. Tucker in the final credits).

Continuity mistake: When Katniss is saying goodbye to Gale, just before she is taken away for the games, there is a small curl of hair hanging down the left side of her neck that can be seen in all the shots when the camera is behind her. Whenever the camera angle changes to a face shot, the curl of hair disappears.

Continuity mistake: J. Edgar takes his secretary-to-be on a date and tries to impress her by showing off his card system for cataloguing books in the Library of Congress. When he runs to the book shelves he brushes past an open book set up on a display stand - sitting on a sheet of glass. The glass moves when he touches it and hangs off the edge of the table. When he returns seconds later the glass is back in place, centered on the table. His date did not move; she was still standing where he left her a few feet away and they were the only two people in the Library.

Factual error: The movie takes place six years after the Vietnam War; mid to late 1970's (if the Three-Mile Island accident depicted in the film is supposed to be the actual accident, then it would be 1979; either way, it is sometime in the 1970's). The 20-dollar bills on the ground in New Orleans have Andrew Jackson's head in the large offset oval; a redesign of the currency that wasn't issued until 1998.

Continuity mistake: Kato rides up on his motorcycle and looks through the fence as Reid is begging Lenore to come back to work. In all the close-up shots Lenore is standing inside the house, just inside the sliding glass doors. When the camera cuts to Kato's point of view she is outside. Cut camera angles back to the close-up shots and she is inside the house again.

Continuity mistake: On the inspector's boat Frank's wrists are handcuffed together with a railing between his arms to secure him in place. There is a very short chain between the cuffs, 4 to 5 inches at most. When he's pulled free by a rope from Elise's boat he starts 'climbing' the rope hand over hand. In one shot his hands are over a foot apart, he's obviously not wearing the handcuffs. When he gets onto Elise's boat his hands are cuffed once again, she shows him how to pick the locks to get the cuffs off.

Continuity mistake: Gamble and Hoitz get thrown to the ground when the accounting office explodes. In an overhead shot of them rolling around on the ground, Gamble's wooden gun has fallen from its holster and is lying on the ground. Cut to a side shot and the gun is back in its holster. Gamble had both hands covering his ears the whole time, he did not pick up the gun. Then comes another overhead shot, the wooden gun is again missing from the holster.

Audio problem: When Dre is leaving Meiying's violin practice in the auditorium there is a long shot of her playing her violin showing her left side as Dre walks to the exit. The notes she is playing are vibrato - varying the pitch of the notes by rapidly pivoting the finger on the strings - but her hand is perfectly still. Even though you can only see part of her hand it is obviously that her playing style doesn't match the notes being played.

Continuity mistake: When young Kirk is driving the stolen car he unhooks the latches to the convertable roof. Cut to a side view when the roof flies off and we see that the car is kicking up a big cloud of dust from the roadway (so much dust that it looks like they cut from the paved road to a dirt road on the side shot, but the grass obscures the road top). Cut to a camera angle behind the car when the roof lands and the dust cloud has instantly disappeared, there is no trace of it. (00:12:40)

Continuity mistake: When the nuclear sub Tigerfish submerges for the first time it is at dusk in rough seas. When they cut to an underwater shot looking up at the sub the water is very calm and light. Cut back to a surface shot of the tower submerging and it's once again dusk and rough seas.
