U-571 (2000)

U-571 picture

Factual error: In the last battle scene when you see shots of the German destroyer through the periscope the last one shot before it's blown up is really bad angling. The ship is far away but in the scope it's very close and the periscope (in order to get that camera angle) is 100 ft in the air.

Rules of Engagement picture

Continuity mistake: The soldiers takes off from the aircraft carrier in Boeing CH-46 helicopters. In the next scene they are flying towards the target and the helicopters are magically upgraded to the Boeing CH-47 model. The mistake is clearly seen when counting the landing gear on the two types. The CH-46 has a single front landing gear and the CH-47 has a double landing gear in the front.

Visible crew/equipment: In the final battle scene where Benjamin is fighting Tavington one-on-one, the camera angle widens and shows the whole battle scene. In the bottom right corner, you can see another camera filming the action.

Kippur picture

Factual error: At the beginning of the movie, when we see the hero wandering the empty streets of south Tel-Aviv, the sharp front tip of a modern scooter can be seen behind the street corner. The movie takes place in 1973, when the only scooters were Piaggio Vespa, which have a distinct round front wheel cover.
