Character mistake: When Stuart calls home from the pay phone he's talking into the wrong end of the phone.
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". This is inaccurate information because MI6 is the Secret Intelligence Service and not the Security Service. It is MI5 which is the Security Service. (00:06:29)
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: 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: 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: 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.steven_frankel
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)Quantom X
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)thestablefanatic
Character mistake: The man in the morgue says in Yoruba "'I told you so, your head is not correct," not what they interpreted.
Character mistake: When Marisa boards the bus in the beginning of the movie to take Ty to school, she is on a Bx1 bus on the Grand Concourse and 173rd St going southbound. However, it is obvious Ty attends PS 33 on Fordham Rd and Jerome Ave in the next scene which is north of their location. It doesn't make sense at all for her to get on a southbound bus when she should be on a northbound bus. The 4 train is shown in the distance going uptown while she is walking up the stairs to the Grand Concourse. Why didn't she just take the train uptown since it stops at Fordham Rd in front of the school but instead she chose to get on a downtown bus? She is basically going in the opposite direction in real life.Tiredandcool1
Character mistake: Although great care was taken to duplicate Bob Crane's distinctive hairstyle for Greg Kinnear, Bob Crane's hair was actually parted on the left. The makeup department for this film parted Greg Kinnear's hair on the right, producing a mirror-image of Bob Crane's hairstyle.Charles Austin Miller
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.
