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.

Gravity picture

Factual error: When Ryan enters the space station and removes her spacesuit she is shown wearing only a tank top and boy shorts. In reality, according to NASA's official webpage astronauts wear a liquid cooling and ventilation garment and an absorption garment (space diapers) under their suit.

Now You See Me picture

Plot hole: Each of the four magicians is given a card that reads "MARCH 29 - 4:44PM - 45 EAST EVAN ST. - NY." Yet when they enter the building on that date, they conveniently know which apartment to go to. How? It was never stated on any of the cards which apartment to go to once they reached 45 East Evan Street.

Fast & Furious 6 picture

Continuity mistake: During the chase scene on the bridge involving the tank, two cars (silver Toyota Corolla hatchback, licence NE34 12 and a black VW Bora, licence NU67 67) appear during many shots, often travelling in different directions on the bridge and either ahead or behind the chase.

Iron Man 3 picture

Continuity mistake: After Tony gets the armor back at the Mandarin's hideout and meets up with Rhodes, they go by boat to the harbor. On the way Tony calls the Vice President - during this scene the VP's phone changes, note the camera on the back of the phone is visible, but in another shot right after, it is a completely flat back panel.

The Hunger Games: Catching Fire picture

Paranoia picture

Factual error: The Whyte character says it is Checkmate even though he moved the queen into a position that doesn't threaten the king and could not have blocked anything that does threaten the king. You can also see all positions that might threaten the king, and none of them do.

Revealing mistake: Towards the end, Jake Gyllenhaal is browsing the internet on a computer running Windows 7...despite the "no network" notification icon at the bottom right of the taskbar.

Pain & Gain picture

Factual error: The movie is set around 1995. But the SWAT team in the movie is wearing gear from the 2000s. (MICH-2000 helmet, modular tactical vest, M4 variant with picatinny rails and scope). Plus, in a scene when the guys are shopping for a taser (gun shop scene), some of the rifles on display are from 2000s era. AR-15 variants with variant stock, foregrip and picatinny rail. Those style of weapon system were unheard of in early 90s. Even Special Forces just adopted it by the late 90s.

Continuity mistake: In the scene when Yuri's daughter is getting away from the hotel, the color of the chopper changes from green to brown between shots.

Olympus Has Fallen picture

Factual error: When one of the terrorists fires an RPG into the security hut, all the windows in the cars standing nearby shatter. Ordinary windshields are made of laminated glass that doesn't shatter, not to mention that at least the SUVs used to transport the prime minister and his escort would surely be armored and therefore possess security glass.

The Conjuring picture

Continuity mistake: When looking at the dog from the bedroom window, there are 2 windows in the room facing the dog. When we see the window from outside only 1 window is lit up, despite both being in the same room.

White House Down picture

Factual error: When Sawyer and Cale take Cadillac One ("The Beast"), they eventually want to shoot a rocket launcher at the fence. Sawyer wants to do this while hanging out of the window. The real Cadillac one is bullet proof and have several layers of glass with the final one softer not only to prevent the bullet but the more deadlier threat glass pieces. Only the driver side can open approx 3 inches.

Elysium picture

Factual error: When the shuttles are approaching the station, their engines are firing from the rear, meaning they are in constant acceleration toward the station. When arriving at a station, you would need to slow down as you approach, meaning the engines should be firing forward (or the shuttle should reverse direction). This happens in all scenes where shuttles are approaching the station.

World War Z picture
World War Z mistake picture

Revealing mistake: When the family's car is about to be hit by the ambulance as they try to escape downtown, Gerry is driving and his wife is up, leaning over the passenger seat talking to their daughter. The camera angle changes to a view from behind, and as the ambulance is about to hit, we can see there is nobody in the car and the ambulance driver is wearing a safety helmet. This is viewable in just a few frames.

DavidRTurner
The Call picture

Factual error: In the beginning of the movie, Leah Templeton is killed on Feb 26. Then the newspaper obituary that Jordan had hanging on her locker door says that Leah's service was to be held at 11am on Feb 27. That is not enough time to prepare the body and get her ready for her funeral by 11am the next morning, especially since it's a murder under investigation.

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Josh finds René on the floor and takes and places her on the couch her head is facing upwards, but in the next shot her head is tilted and facing the camera when Josh smells her, without her head moving.

Ian Antcliff 1323
G.I. Joe: Retaliation picture

Plot hole: Even if someone would make all nuclear powers launch their nuclear missiles and then destroy them you still wouldn't have a nuclear weapons free world as most of those nations have plenty of nuclear weapons in reserve. A lot would be even be armed and ready to go for a possible second strike.

Firewall
Texas Chainsaw 3D picture

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Heather runs through the fairground she grabs onto the back of the Ferris wheel seat and is taken up in the air. Leatherface throws the chainsaw at the cop and the next shot shows Heather coming back down the other side of the Ferris wheel. But she should be on the inside of the carriages as it just spins round on an axis. These kinds of wheels don't "twist" at the top otherwise the rider would just be staring at the inside of the wheel the whole time.

The Last Days on Mars picture

Factual error: They inject the infected Brunel with antibiotics to fight the bacteria, however there is no pulse and that means the antibiotic can never spread through the body, as there is no blood circulation.
