The Equalizer 2 picture

Revealing mistake: The final scene is filmed in Brant Rock MA, and the weather is blatantly CGI. If you notice almost everyone is bone dry in a supposed driving rain storm. Look especially at the character perched on top of the submarine tower. For contrast note the "pizza delivery" scene where it is raining heavily and everyone involved is soaking wet.

Innerspace picture Innerspace mistake picture

Revealing mistake: When Jack is hanging out of the truck you can see him standing on the hood of the car which Lydia is driving. At some points we get camera view from the back seat of the car. In some angles the mirror inside the car disappear. This is to prevent us from seeing the camera. (01:04:15)

The Bank Job picture

Revealing mistake: As Terry and Martine approach Le Sac shop, you can see reflections in the window of that shop of trees. This gives away the fact this was a custom built set (as shown in the extras) and not the real location in London. (00:20:05)

Revealing mistake: In the final scene as Doc tell Billy good-bye if you look up to the top right hand corner of the screen you can clearly see a jet trail in the blue sky. Certainly not possible in those days. (01:42:20)
