Best adventure movie mistakes of 2016

Doctor Strange picture

Factual error: In the first scene where Dr Strange is preparing for surgery he uses improper surgical gowning technique breaking aseptic protocols. Strange puts on a mask after washing his hands, contaminating his clean hands by bringing them in proximity to the non-sterile environment of his face. Surgical masks must be worn before the full washing of hands. Another error is that he inserted his hands all the way through his gown to don gloves. Hands must never leave the sleeves and gloves must be put on with the sleeves still covering.

Passengers picture

Factual error: During the 31st year of the Avalon's voyage, the ship passes close to the star Arcturus, which is about 37 light years from Earth. Later in the movie, it was stated that the Avalon was moving at around 50% of the speed of light. The ship would not have reached Arcturus in the time allotted.

Blathrop
The Lost City of Z picture

Plot hole: When the group is walking through the jungle for the 2nd time, they have nothing more than their backpacks and a horse to accompany them. Suddenly we see them rowing down a river on a boat and raft. After making peace with the savages, when they have to let a group member go to get medical help, they have been washed ashore as they have been traveling on a single raft since the canoe was damaged by spear attack. How is it that they had a horse and an Indian guide to send away with their injured man? (01:16:55)

Deadpool picture
Deadpool mistake picture

Visible crew/equipment: After Colossus and Negasonic Teenage Warhead leave the manor to go find Deadpool, the scene cuts back to the bridge where several gunmen are shown exiting cars and begin approaching Deadpool. In one of the shots during this, a gunman is shown exiting the seat of a car, with the camera placed behind him. In the shot, the reflection of a camera, cameraman and boom mic are perfectly visible in the side wing mirror. (00:10:15)

Casual Person
Rogue One: A Star Wars Story picture

Plot hole: When the inspection team goes into the Rogue One shuttle and then the Rebel team comes out of the shuttle in the inspection team's disguise, no one near the landing pad or in the building notices that two stormtroopers have disappeared from the group, the Imperial Officer has grown a beard in less than 5 minutes, and an Imperial Droid has come into the group.

The Legend of Tarzan picture

Continuity mistake: The doctor starts out carrying a Holland and Holland "Royal" Double Rifle; but when he and Tarzan pursue the train, the doctor loses his H&H rifle in the leap from a cliff. Lo and behold, after they commandeer the train and disembark, the doctor is inexplicably carrying his H&H Double Rifle again. The H&H is not a common rifle, even today, and his chances of just discovering an exact replacement aboard the train is beyond coincidental.

Charles Miller
Alice Through the Looking Glass picture

Other mistake: When Alice's ship is being chased, she orders her crew heel to port (turn left). Instead, it turns heel to starboard (right).

The 5th Wave picture

Factual error: The EMP burst would have only affected a small number of vehicles. Most vehicles act like a Faraday Cage.

Movie Medic
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows picture

Continuity mistake: When April changes into a school girl's outfit to distract Dr. Stockman's assistant, she grabs a miniskirt and ties it around the skirt that she's already wearing. But we never see her take this particular skirt off. It just magically disappears. She is also wearing pantyhose which suddenly changes to over the knee stockings.

THGhost
Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them picture

Factual error: At one point, Newt Scamander says he found one of his beasts in Equatorial Guinea. That country only got that name after independence from Spain in 1968; back in 1926, when the movie is set, the place was known as Spanish Guinea.

brunoparga
The Jungle Book picture

Audio problem: In the beginning, you can hear the sounds of the jungle, including the laugh of a kookaburra. The problem is: The film is set in India and kookaburras are only in Australia, not India.

Hunt for the Wilderpeople picture

Visible crew/equipment: When the duo discover the bird, you can see what looks like a crew member moving behind a tree trying to get out of shot.

Upvote valid corrections to help move entries into the corrections section.

Suggested correction: It is not a crew member moving, you can see either Zig or Zag's (Ricky and Hec's dogs) legs in the bush.

Risen (2016)

Risen picture

Factual error: The film shows cactus and agave plants in many scenes - those plants were imported from the Americas to Judea 1800 years after Jesus.

X-Men: Apocalypse picture

Factual error: As the X-Men land in Cairo, scenes reveal the destruction Magneto is wreaking around the world, where it is simultaneously daylight in New York, Sydney and Cairo - it is possible for it to be daylight in two of these locations at once, but not all three. (01:46:00)

Independence Day: Resurgence picture

Continuity mistake: At the end of the movie when the mothership takes off the central saucer section is in place, yet we saw the queen alien fly off in it earlier on.

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice picture

Factual error: At the start Bruce Wayne runs into a massive dust cloud formed from the falling building. In the scenes that follow he and the other people have very little or no dust on them at all - they should be completely covered and choking on it.

Star Trek Beyond picture

Character mistake: When the elder Vulcans inform young Spock of the death of the older Spock, they show him a tablet that has him listed as "Second Officer - USS Enterprise." Spock was First Officer.

BocaDavie Premium member
Assassin's Creed picture

Plot hole: After escaping from execution, the assassins still made use of throwing knives out of their garments as they ran through the city. These would have been removed from them before they were shackled in the cell.

Pee-wee's Big Holiday picture

Continuity mistake: While travelling with the novelties salesman, a passing car's occupants yell about the bag of groceries on top of the car. As the camera faces the salesman's car, he puts up the window advertising the fake bag gag. As the camera faces out towards the passing car, the window goes up again. Later, a truck passes by, and the salesman does the same thing, but the message is now in Spanish, without the man stopping to change it. A moment later, the window advertisement (seen from inside) appears to be in English during the same scene.

Movie Nut
Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children picture

Other mistake: When the children arrive in Blackpool, Emma tells Jake that loop entrances can be anywhere and that "the one in London is in a subway tunnel", but on the map of all the loops they were viewing previously inside the boat, there was no marking of a loop in London.

Amina Thommesen-Kähler
Kung Fu Panda 3 picture

Plot hole: In Kung Fu Panda 2, Shen says he waited 30 years since he destroyed the Panda village, and Po was just a baby at the time. However, in Kung Fu Panda 3 Mr. Ping says he raised Po for 20 years before he told him he was adopted. (00:31:15)

Fox666
Ice Age: Collision Course picture

Continuity mistake: In an early scene with Scrat on board the alien space ship, he accidentally increases the artificial gravity, and there is a control panel indicator with the word "GRAVITY" in English. In a later scene when the ship is out of control and a danger warning flashes in front of him, it's written in an alien language.

The BFG picture

Continuity mistake: At breakfast in the BFG cave the bottle of frobscottle is taken from the table by the big bad giant when he says "I is taking this", only to show up again when Sophie clambers out the shnozcumber.
