Continuity 

When Brenda slips and falls in the ruins of a skyscraper, her arm positions upon impact on the glass differs in the very next shot of her moments later. During impact it's prominently shown her left arm is down by her side away from her body and her right arm is curled above her head. The next shot her left arm is on her stomach and her right arm is outward torso level below her head.

When WICKED storms the factory it is deep night. Thomas and Brenda escape and run around for a short time but when they emerge from the underground it is full daylight, indeed it looks like afternoon.

(at around 1h 1 min) When Thomas and the guys were hanging upside down at Jorge's place, one shot shows Teresa with her back facing Jorge while the immediate successive shot shows her with her front facing Jorge.

During the scene where Winston is getting worse he lays back in the sand to show them his stomach. At this point he is laying flat on his back. In just a another shot or two he is laying against a mound of sand that is providing him an inclined position. This mound of sand is nowhere to be seen while he is laying flat.

Crew or equipment visible 

Around half an hour in the movie the escaped Gladers open a roll-door, just after that Minho picks up a jacket. Right after that moment, in the left lower corner a dark person with a pointy hood is seen in the background, who disappears when the camera turns.

Factual errors 

In a dark bunker Minho gets an electric generator going and the power comes on, causing a flat-screen TV to light up. However, it displays analogue 'snow' even though it's a digital device, and in any case it should simply start in standby mode.

Miscellaneous 

Eight Gladers escape the Wicked Complex. Thomas, Teresa, Minho, Newt, Frypan, Winston, Aris, and an unnamed Glader boy. The same eight are chased by Cranks in the abandoned mall; yet only seven survive. The unnamed Glader boy is never seen again for the rest of the movie. You never see him get killed and no one ever mentions his name throughout the movie or seems to be concerned about his disappearance. Although, a shot of him being pulled away by Cranks during the mall chase can be seen in one of the movie's trailers.

When they first meet Jorge, he asks them 3 questions: Where did you come from, Where are you going and How can I profit? Then a minute later he refers to Where did you come from? as question number 2.

Plot holes 

When Aris and Thomas are spying by crawling through the vent, Aris closes the hatch before entering the secret room. The movie doesn't explain how they return to their room, considering they would never reach the vent that is high above the floor.

A large canteen is filled with upwards of a hundred young people, when Janson announces the next lucky few who'll be moving on to greener pastures. The list includes such common names as Peter and Abigail, yet nobody has to ask if he means them.

Revealing mistakes 

When the Gladers are hung upside down over the pit, their hair and jackets hang down due to gravity. However, their shirts and T-shirts (which are not tucked into their waistbands) do not even though they are shown to be loose and bulky.

It's clear that the T-shirts are being held in place by stage tape to prevent them from exposing the actor's midriffs and possibly covering their faces.

Just after Thomas rescues Brenda from falling through a large glass window, they emerge onto a fire escape. Although everything seems tilted over thanks to the camera angle and the actors leaning on the railing, from how the pair move as they turn to the stairs it's clear that the 'ruined' skyscraper is actually standing upright.

Spoilers

The goof item below may give away important plot points.

Plot holes 

Although society is supposed to be in ruins, everybody including the Right Arm resistance group has access to fuel for their vehicles and generators as well as ammunition for their weapons. Without refineries or factories, they wouldn't be getting their supplies.
