Action-adventure movies are full of thrills, awe-inspiring set pieces, and legendary heroes. From Captain Jack Sparrow sailing the Caribbean to Indiana Jones solving another ancient puzzle, these classics are nearly perfect in many fans' eyes. That doesn't mean they're completely flawless, however. Take, for example, in Jumanji: The Next Level, a camera operator can be seen rather clearly hiding in some trees as characters retreat into the jungle. Sometimes of these oopsies are more about chronology. In Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade, Indy keeps some newspaper clippings in his journal that were written several years after the events of the film. In a similar vein, sometimes makeup just can't quite cover up little anachronisms. In Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End, a singing boy at the beginning has braces on his teeth.

Check out this list of smalls mistakes that fans spotted in action-adventure movies, and don't forget to vote up your favorites!

  • 5. The Camera Crew Reflects In A Window In 'Last Action Hero'

    From Redditor u/11yrz:

    When Benedict first becomes aware of his own fictional existence in Last Action Hero and addresses the audience directly — a fleeting glimpse of the camera crew in the mirror can be seen behind him. A coincidental mistake or a clever breaking of the fourth wall?
