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.
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).
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.
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.
Other mistake: In the opening sequence, Mowgli is running at full speed through the jungle, accompanied by Bagheera the black panther, who is mostly unseen until Mowgli finally collapses, exhausted onto the jungle floor. Mowgli lies on his back, talking to Bagheera, and neither are breathing heavily or showing any sign of exertion following their lengthy run.
Continuity mistake: When David and Tom, as Mr. Fuzzypants are free falling from the building roof, David and Tom are falling with the building facing behind them. They turn around to face each other and are now shown with their side facing the building, but when David deploys the parachute, he is suddenly back with the building facing behind him again.
Revealing mistake: In the opening scenes, we see a very pregnant Draka reclining on a bed of animal hides as Durotan watches over her. In the extreme closeup, we see Draka twitch her lips, and her small tusks flex from side-to-side with her lips, instead of remaining firmly aligned with her jaw as they should.
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.
Revealing mistake: The subway station is identified by its internal signs as "Central" station, but as the Suicide Squad enters its exterior entrance, the sign above declares that it is "Bay St." station. Bay Street Station in Toronto is frequently used for movie shoots, as it has a complete lower platform which has been out of service for decades (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bay_ (TTC) #Lower_Bay).
Continuity mistake: When Pete and Elliott return to their hideout after the ordeal on the truck is over, it is dark. Moments later when Bryce Dallas Howard arrives, there is a lot more light coming in through the trees and the scene looks brighter. This is in the space of five minutes or less.
