Best action movie mistakes of 2017
Factual error: It is roughly 120-135 dB inside of a C-130, especially one that hasn't been specifically modified. It is so loud that it is painful to be in the cargo hold without hearing protection (besides it being outside of military regulations) and you certainly couldn't have a normal conversation while it was in flight.
Factual error: The action takes place around the second half of June (either side of the Glastonbury festival weekend). At the beginning of the film leaving work early evening in time to get home for dinner, in the UK, it wouldn't be dark. Later on, there isn't that much snow in the Alps, especially below the tree line, at that time of year.
Plot hole: The nuclear codes are stolen and the Russian guy holding them was let go by Dom. He would contact his government to let them know and the codes changed. Cypher would also know this so her plan is flawed.
Continuity mistake: Near the end when Jake realises he has to go into space to get to the section he needs to access to put the code in, there is about 2 minutes and 50 seconds left on the Geostorm clock. The next shot he has a space suit on and proceeds into space. The next time the clock is shown it says around 1:40. There's no way he went and found that suit, put it on by himself, and got where he needed to be in under 1 minute.
Continuity mistake: The 2 main characters are on a roof running from the police. Samuel L Jackson's hands are handcuffed together from a bit earlier on in the film. He jumps off the roof into a bin on the floor but bounces off scaffolding on the way down, there are 2 short but clear shots of his arms wide apart with no chain between the cuffs as he's falling. He lands in the bin and proceeds to get up and out with his hands back cuffed.
Plot hole: After the car is destroyed, Gru is knocked unconscious and Dru enters Balthazar Bratt's robot to destroy the robot's core from the inside. Once Gru wakes up, Balthazar attempts to kill him with the robot's laser and Dru destroys the core causing the robot to collapse. Gru then yells out "Dru!" and runs over to the wreckage of the robot to try and find him. The problem with this is that since Gru was knocked unconscious before Dru entered the robot, and Gru knew nothing of Dru's plan to disable the robot's core, there is no way for him to know that Dru was inside the robot.

Continuity mistake: When Pierce first begins to interrogate Caliban in the safe house in Mexico, a large portion of Caliban's albino makeup is smudged below his nose, revealing the actor's natural skin in his first close-up of the scene; after switching to a close-up of Pierce, then back to Caliban, the smudge has been fixed.
Audio problem: There are American crows (Corvus brachyrhynchos) calling in the distance during the initial pursuit for Quan in the forest behind the Belfast farmhouse, right after the trap door scene ends and we see two of Hennessy's men share a look. American crows do not exist in Ireland - only hooded crows, carrion crows, rooks, ravens and choughs.
Continuity mistake: In the beginning of the movie when the guardians are getting ready to fight off an inter-dimensional being Rocket winks a couple of times at Starlord. Starlord then responds but is looking to his left at Rocket, whilst Rocket is on his right side. The scene is for no reason mirrored, proven by the big orange device behind him also switching from being on his left to on his right.
