Continuity 

In the final fight scene between Hamlet and Laertes, and after Laertes' sword's point is tampered with, Hamlet it scratched on the shoulder with Laertes' sword. The scratch is about 1x2cm and northward in direction. Later on, when Hamlet's shoulder is seen, his scratch is much longer and thinner and runs the length of his shoulder.
