Continuity mistake: While Gandalf is nervously waiting, Frodo is looking for the envelope with the Ring in the wood chest. In the first shot looking up from the POV of the chest, Frodo holds the envelope with the flap up near his fingers and the seal below it. However in the next shot the envelope is reversed, with the flap opposite his fingers. (00:36:40)

Continuity mistake: Frodo enters a dark Bag End and Gandalf grabs Frodo's shoulder. In the next shot Frodo spins around and Gandalf removes his hand. However in the last shot facing Gandalf, Gandalf still has his hand on Frodo's shoulder. (00:36:30)

Continuity mistake: Jack says, "That is a wonderful trick. Except, once again..." as he walks down the sloped cart. Behind him to his left are a chair, a barrel and between the two is a miniature ladder and some objects leaning on the wall. When Will cuts the rope of the overhead barrels, Jack (stuntman Tony Angelotti) stands on the cart and the ladder and other objects are not leaning on the wall between the chair and barrel. (00:24:00 - 00:25:50)

Revealing mistake: After fleeing from Boromir, Frodo is approached by Aragorn and Frodo passes a statue on a stone base and a stone pillar near stone steps. As Aragorn follows Frodo, in these shots, Aragorn's height and waist reach the same markings as Frodo when he went past these same objects. (01:17:15)

Continuity mistake: The Watcher in the Water holds Frodo upside down, and just as its head comes out of the water, but before its mouth appears, in this shot part of the back of Frodo's cloak is tucked into his belt at the back of his waist. The cloak is not tucked into the belt in the previous or following shots. (00:17:45)

Continuity mistake: After Kathy is taken away, Matthews and Gracie are together, surrounded by a crowd and police/fire vehicles. His face, and the back and front of his clothing are covered in black smudges. As soon as she asks, "So, how does it feel?" in these shots all the smudges on his face and clothing are different. The crowd and police/fire vehicles differ too. (01:41:45)

Revealing mistake: When Gracie throws the crown up towards the Liberty prop, it does not fly normally. It's very obvious that it's a CG crown leaving her hand and flying through the air. Especially enjoyable if it's seen frame by frame. (01:39:55)

Audio problem: On the Deeping Wall, Theoden says, "Draw all our forces behind the wall..." but Theoden's lips are moving before we hear him say those words. (00:17:10)

Continuity mistake: While Jack is inspecting the crew on the dock at Tortuga the sun shines from different directions in some shots. In some shots the crew's back is in shadow and in others their right side is in shadow. Also seen with the shadow of the goods in front of them, behind them, and to the left of Anamaria. This scene was shot during the course of a day. (01:01:00)

Continuity mistake: Jack removes Anamaria's hat, in the front shot her hair falls down, and in the next back shot, her hair falls again. Also, the striped scarf around her forehead changes in the arrangement of the stripes in different shots. In the front shots the yellow stripe is on top, but in the side shots the grey stripe is on top. (01:02:05)

Continuity mistake: When Gillette puts the iron shackles on Jack, as Elizabeth offers her protest, in the shots facing them, there is a barrel with a green sack on top of it and two wicker rods against the stone wall. However, when Norrington says, "Indeed," then when Jack says, "Finally," and also when Jack says, "I saved your life. You save mine. We're square," the barrel, sack and rods are not there. (00:18:25)

Continuity mistake: Will comes into the blacksmith shop, comments about Mr. Brown and then approaches the anvil. In this shot the wood post on his right has a hammer and knotted rope hanging together on the same side. However, later when Jack sprays the soot at Will the same wood post is seen on Will's left and the rope hangs on another side of the post, not together with the hammer. That rope changes shape and position in other shots in between too. (00:22:15 - 00:26:15)

Audio problem: At the blacksmith shop, just after Jack says, "You need to find yourself a girl mate," Jack pulls an all wood mallet from the wood ledge above and it actually makes a long metallic rasping sound, which is completely out of sync with the action. In a previous shot Will does a somersault and he grabs a sword hanging from the wood post. When he pulls it off the all wood ledge, it too makes a sharp metallic rasping sound. This is obviously done for dramatic effect. (00:24:25)

Continuity mistake: Just after Jack pulls the red hot blade out of Will's hand, Will does a somersault and in the close-up he grabs hold of another sword and swiftly points it up. In the following wide shot Will is just grabbing the sword again. (00:24:25)

Continuity mistake: Jack says, "That is a wonderful trick..." and hanging on the wall over the chair are a saw and a semi-circular tool and the saw lies over the tool. Later Jack falls when freeing himself from the sword embedded in the rafter, he stands up and climbs onto the cart again. Behind him are the saw and semi-circular tool, but the tool is over the saw now. Then later when Norrington's men shake the door to try to enter, the saw lies over the tool again. (00:24:00 - 00:25:45)

Continuity mistake: When Jack first confronts Will at the blacksmith shop, seen behind Jack, hanging on the stone wall near the fireplace are iron masks and other paraphernalia. Later, when Jack sprays the soot at Will, the iron masks and paraphernalia are arranged differently on the wall. (00:23:00 - 00:26:15)

Continuity mistake: In the stable, just as Aragorn takes Brego's lead rope from the Rohan, in the shot of Brego moving backward, the two knots at his halter are seen. In the next shot as Aragorn continues soothing Brego he moves in closer, the two knots seen differ from the previous shot and there is no excess rope on Brego's left knot. However as Aragorn unties the knot on Brego's right, the excess rope of his left knot is seen, which differs from the second shot. (01:31:00)

Continuity mistake: After Aragorn asks, "What do you fear my lady?" in the following shots the hair at her shoulders changes position between the front of her shoulder and behind her shoulder, in the different camera angles. (01:35:00)

Continuity mistake: The first two shots of people leaving Edoras are shown, and in the wide shot Éothain and Freda are seen on their horse, as well as the people in front and in back of them. Next are shots of Theoden and Gamling speaking, and the Aragorn and Éowyn confrontation. Then in the next shots the people are still seen leaving Edoras, including Éothain and Freda with the same people in front and in back of them as was seen in the much earlier shot! (01:33:50 - 01:35:50)
