Red 2 picture

Revealing mistake: When Han shoots at Bruce Willis and the others with the Gatling gun, we see cartridges on the ground. You can tell that they are all blanks. The tip is jagged and has been closed - live ammo just has an open hole where the bullet was.

Suggested correction: She is teasing him, goading him, trying to make him find out for himself whether she is going commando or not.

No, she is not. She spreads her legs and reveals to him she isn't wearing any panties and then tells him he's not allowed to touch her. What would be the point of goading him to make him wonder if she is going commando when she's very deliberately flashing her privates at him?

Fast & Furious 6 picture

Revealing mistake: The truck Roman and Tej are suspended in during the runway scene has no prop shaft attached (without it, the truck won't be able to drive at all). When you look at the bottom of the truck while it's in the air, you can see where the shaft was supposed to be attached to the rear differential.

A Good Day to Die Hard picture

Revealing mistake: In the opening chase with the armoured truck it comes up behind a blue car that is already dented on the near side, which is the side it slides round to so the truck hits it. It then gets pushed onto a silver van that is completely wrecked from previous takes.

Identity Thief picture

Revealing mistake: The bounty hunter captures Diana and has her in his van. She knocks him out in their fight with a punch to the throat. He is slumped over the steering wheel and she can't get him off as the van is going down the highway. She can't steer the van at all and it is heading for a turn. However, on the outside showing Sandy's car following, they come to a turn in the road and the van turns. They did a good job trying to disguise this with the style of filming, but not quite good enough.

Now You See Me picture

Revealing mistake: After the banker has picked out his card, Daniel says "Show it your friends in Section B. But not to us." As he says this, visible in the background is a television with a live feed from the stage. On the television, we can see Henley walking around the stage, but the movements of Henley on the TV don't match up with what Henley is doing onstage - on the live TV feed, she is shown looking up at the audience, but on the stage at the same moment she is looking at the banker. Also, Jack walks right by her and he is never shown on the TV. (00:19:25)
