Character mistake: Near the beginning when James Bond enters the North Korean complex, Zao is sent information to his mobile phone about James Bond being from the "MI6 Security Service".

Character mistake: At the end of film when the Chinese refugees are being unloaded from the lorry a policeman helps an injured man off, then goes back to help others. The injured man sits and then lies down. As he does, the policeman that helped him throws a bag without looking, which hits the injured man.
Character mistake: At the very beginning of the film, when Hannibal Lecter is serving dinner to his guests, one diner asks "what is this divine looking amuse-bouche" when she and the other guests have a full plate of food. An amuse-bouche is a single bite of food meant to be served at the beginning of a meal, not a plate full of food. Lecter's guests would be better educated.
Character mistake: Early in the story Dr. Gibbs rationalises the story to come by using two cars traveling the road at greatly different speeds to illustrate "Einstein's theory of relativity". He basically says that the slower moving car seems to stand still as seen from the much faster car's point of view. But in real Einsteinian relativity, just the opposite happens. When two reference frames are traveling with respect to each other, each sees the other's time advancing more quickly.
Character mistake: Right before Madison shoots the 2 police officers they show a close-up of the gun in its holster. The holster is unbuttoned. No police officer would leave his gun holster unbuttoned, especially while sitting next to a felon.
Character mistake: When newspapers are flashed on screen to demonstrate how the dragons have destroyed the countries, one of the headlines reads "Europes' capital cities in ruins." It should read "Europe's capital cities in ruins."
Character mistake: When Mary is in the execution chamber, about to be incinerated, there is a voice over of the countdown till her death. They count back from 9 seconds and say 8 seconds, 7 seconds, 6 seconds, etc. The count is too slow. Every time they say a second, it's actually two seconds having passed. (01:22:10)
Character mistake: Paul tells Marcy he's leaving her to go look for Jeff. But soon afterwards, when Paul hears Marcy's dying screams, he runs back to the cabin from exact opposite direction to the one Jeff went when he ran off into the woods. Paul watched Jeff leave, so he would've known what direction he should've been searching in. (01:05:50 - 01:11:10)
Character mistake: Marisa is on a downtown 4 train and it is entering Fordham Rd station in the Bronx through the window. There is a parking garage in real life behind the front uptown platform at Fordham Rd, and when she is on the train it is visible when it's entering the downtown side of the station. However when she drops off Ty at school which is obvious he attends PS 33, she is walking north of the school in front of the 4 train el. Why would she travel uptown to go downtown? Especially since she was "running late" for work.
Character mistake: After Edmond changes his identity to become the Count of Monte Cristo, he is addressed several times as "Your Grace." "Your Grace" is a term of address used when addressing dukes and duchesses. He should have been addressed as "Your Excellency", which is the address given to counts and countesses.
Character mistake: After George reads his speech to Lucy, she says it was fine except for "the split infinitive near the end." There was no split infinitive. (For example, "to boldly go" is a split infinitive; "to go boldly" is not.) (01:29:00)
Character mistake: When the Rohirrim are preparing for the Helm's Deep battle, a man is shown sharpening a sword on a grindstone. He is doing it wrong, but it is the way that most people think is the right way. The stone should be spinning so that the blade is "shaving" it, even though that seems like it would dull the edge.
