Iron Man 3

New this month Continuity mistake: When Tony is attacked by helicopters in his Malibu mansion, his right hand has a black wrap around it. After he gets buried by rubble underwater in the suit, his right armored hand detaches and grabs his bare right hand to pull Tony out from the rubble. Tony's bare hand no longer has a black wrap.

Continuity mistake: When Tony is in his garage injecting his arm, his chest piece is glowing brightly through his shirt, however, the very next shot when he is wiping his arm with the alcohol pad, his chest piece is suddenly turned off.

Continuity mistake: After Tony gets the armor back at the Mandarin's hideout and meets up with Rhodes, they go by boat to the harbor. On the way Tony calls the Vice President - during this scene the VP's phone changes, note the camera on the back of the phone is visible, but in another shot right after, it is a completely flat back panel.

Factual error: When the Iron Patriot armor is shot at on Air Force One, the bullets ricochet and smash a window. The windows on Air Force One are bulletproof.

Continuity mistake: When Tony Stark and Col. Rhodes confront the Mandarin in his chair the hammer for the Beretta is forward after Rhodes loaded a new magazine. The hammer is shown in the back position in a subsequent shot. It happens twice during this scene.

Continuity mistake: When Ellen Brandt is confronting the Police Chief of Rose Hill, TN at the bar. The weapon that is visible that Brandt takes is a semi-automatic with a single stack magazine. The weapon which she shoots has a double stack magazine.

Continuity mistake: Before Tony sends a holiday greeting to the Mandarin his car is pointed one way when he gets in, then the car faces the other direction.

Continuity mistake: When Tony is giving his address to the Mandarin through the media the reporter in front of him has a cell phone which changes design between shots.

Other mistake: When Tony's house is destroyed by the Mandarin, watch closely when Pepper is blown through the air, just before Tony attaches his suit to her - she's very obviously wearing high-heeled shoes that would make it impossible for her feet/ankles to fit correctly into the suit without them being crunched up by the suit's boots. But later on, when she gets out, if you listen, you can hear the "clicking" of her unbroken heels as she runs around.

Continuity mistake: When Stark gets trapped by the water tank he is completely soaked. When he walks back to the car with the boy he is completely dry and his hair is restyled with not enough time for this to happen.

Continuity mistake: Colonel Rhodes holds his pistol to the face of the Mandarin in a close up shot, then lowers it. The next instant shot later of Rhodes show him still holding the pistol to the Mandarin's face.

Character mistake: When Happy is in hospital, two bad things happen: One, when a nurse comes into the room, she injects a drug into his IV line, but she doesn't kink the line above where she is injecting, so the drug goes both down and up the line. Two, Happy's IV line isn't attached to a pump. The nurse manually fiddles with the flow rate of Happy's IV. But the fiddling leads to nowhere, as she doesn't look at the chamber where the drops come out - this is very important, as the IV bag can run out anywhere from 30 mins to 3 hours.

Character mistake: When Harley asks Tony what the light is coming from his chest, Tony responds "an electromagnet." Harley replies "What does it power?" An electromagnet is not a source of power. The arc reactor is the power source which powers both the electromagnet (to keep Tony safe from the shrapnel near his heart) and the Iron Man suit.

Visible crew/equipment: When the President boards Air Force One with the Iron Patriot you can see the reflection of the camera boom and crew in the two black cars in front of the plane moving to the left.

Continuity mistake: When Tony is talking with Rhodes at the bar, his chest is not glowing.

Continuity mistake: When Tony and Pepper are attacked by 3 missile-wielding helicopters, Tony, dressed in his metallic suit, has blood on his nose and cheeks. Problem is: The blood increases on his face, which is normal as it is still bleeding, but then it lessens. Then it gets worse again.

Continuity mistake: When Tony tests his mark 42, the HUD shot shows his mouth is bleeding, before the armor breaks that triggers his injury.

Character mistake: Killian tell Pepper the "primary somatosensory cortex" is the pain center. However, this is a gross exaggeration someone of his knowledge would not say. One, the area handles all tactile (touch) receptions. And two, other areas of the brain handle pain, so there's not a "pain center." However, the area that lights up is also wrong, because only the right side would be stimulated since it was his left arm that was touched.

Factual error: At the end Tony drives an Audi R-8 e-tron, which is an electric car, and while it has a sound system to produce an artificial engine noise, it doesn't sound like what is heard.

Other mistake: Immediately before the helicopter attack on Tony's house, Maya (the "botanist") looks at the TV set, which shows a news chopper shot of the home, and says "Should we be worried about this?" It's only a moment later, when everyone looks at the screen, that a missile track appears on the screen.

Other mistake: The Miss Chattanooga Christmas Pageant should have been named "Miss Tennessee", as the pageant was made up of contestants from the various cities of Tennessee and not counties or suburbs of Chattanooga.

Continuity mistake: When Tony is creating his weapons, one shot shows the electric glove he is wearing to be designed for his left hand. Later on, when he is in the Mandarin's mansion, he attacks one of the guards with the electric glove, only now the glove is on his right hand.

Continuity mistake: When the suit starts to arrive at the bad guy's house in bits, Tony Stark is walking down a long hallway. Scene cuts to outside and his facemask arrives, but the building he is in front of isn't big enough for the hallway we just saw.

Factual error: In the scene in Tennessee, when Tony is being chased by the glowing "homeland security" lady. He throws a jug of oil and lights it on fire with the red hot handcuffs that he takes off. Then he somehow manages to slip a set of dog tags in a microwave and turns it on. This is to create a spark to explode the gas line that he pulls from the wall, which somehow isn't ignited by the large grease fire in the same room.

Plot hole: How come the Extremis serum was able to regenerate Ellen Brandt's arm but not repair the scar on her face? According to the movie, the serum is supposed rewrite the body's genetic code and constantly repair damaged cells, so her face should have been restored to its original state, just like her missing arm. Even if she had been born with the scar the serum would have healed it, just like it healed all of Aldrich Killian's physical impairments.

Factual error: When Jon Favreau is in hospital, his IV bags are way too low. To be effective, the bags must be much higher so they can drip properly, even the one attached to the machine.

Factual error: When Maya is trying to get Killian to let Tony go, she holds a dose of Extremis to her neck and says "1200 cc's - A dose half this size, I'm dead." 1200 cc's is over 40 ounces. What she's holding is barely the size of a cell phone.

Revealing mistake: One of the Air Force One survivors is shown floating awkwardly on his stomach with his legs in the air. This was due to the floatation device used by the actor, because no unaided human would be able to be so buoyant in a pose like that.

Continuity mistake: Tony is in the bedroom with Maya Hansen, Happy is seen closing the sliding door. With the door just inches from being fully closed, a quick cut to Tony and Maya kissing, then back to Happy, and the door is almost fully open, with Happy in the process of closing it again just as the plant explodes.

Continuity mistake: When Tony is sending a holiday greeting to The Mandarin, he has sunglasses on. Then in the shot from behind, he doesn't have any glasses on. Then they reappear in the next shot and then he takes off the sunglasses.
