Best action movie mistakes of 2017

Dunkirk picture
   Video

Deliberate mistake: The me-109 have painted yellow fronts, this wasn't done by the Germans until after Dunkirk. Christopher Nolan has admitted doing this deliberately so the audience could tell the difference between the spitfire and the me-109 during the combat scenes.

Star Wars: The Last Jedi picture

Continuity mistake: When Finn is going to an escape pod to run away, he puts his pack down in front of it, seen again in a later shot. When Rose realises he's trying to run away, his pack has moved itself inside the pod.

American Made picture

Factual error: Barry Seal is taken with the guys of the drug-kartel in a yellow helicopter. There is an internet address on the side of the helicopter, half covered by the door, entirely inappropriate for the timeframe of the early 80's.

Geostorm picture

Character mistake: Gerard Butler uses a sentence that contains the word 'me'. He is corrected, being told that the word 'I' would have been correct. However, he was grammatically correct in his use of the word 'me'. The correction was in error.

The Mummy picture

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.

Spider-Man: Homecoming picture

Factual error: After Toomes and his crew lose the cleanup contract and they are back in their shop, on the table is a Coors "stubby" Banquet beer bottle. This bottle was released in 2013 and the scene takes place earlier than that.

John Wick: Chapter 2 picture

Continuity mistake: In the opening scenes where he gets his mustang back, he hits the guy who comes over the roof and busts the windshield, but in the very next shot the windshield is pristine.

Wonder Woman picture

Continuity mistake: At the end after the massive explosion on the runway, two German soldiers get up unscathed and remove their gas masks. They suddenly appeared, as no one else was there, only Diana, and they are only a few feet away from the crater.

Kong: Skull Island picture

Plot hole: The idea that Marlow would simply take a taxi to his wife's address after being missing in action for thirty odd years is stupid beyond belief. He was on a ship sailing from the central Pacific for days and those ships have radios! The US military would have known he was coming. Someone, somewhere would have notified the authorities that a US serviceman long thought dead was actually alive and on his way home and his wife and son would have been there on the docks to greet him, not standing slack-jawed in the kitchen dropping trays of drinks on the floor when he turned up! What would have happened if she had remarried? Or moved house? Or she was dead? Don't tell me the US military didn't know he was coming - he is wearing a brand new uniform, clean and pressed.

PEDAUNT
Fast & Furious 8 picture

Plot hole: Using an EMP to disable the security at the base would render anything electrical useless, computers, cars, cameras, anything with a micro chip in it. Firing a EMP directly under something you want to steal like a submarine is completely stupid - Cypher would know this.

New this month Suggested correction: Unless the thing you want to steal is in a Faraday Cage, one that would be impervious to an electromagnetic radiation getting through, like for instance... the steel hull of of a submarine, which is specifically designed to be watertight, but in the process, would also make the perfect foil for an EMP.

Friso94
Kingsman: The Golden Circle picture

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.

CHIPS picture

Other mistake: Near the start of the movie Jon indicates that he has titanium in his right arm, but towards the end of the movie the bullet ricochets off his left arm.

The Hitman's Bodyguard picture

Continuity mistake: The amount of damage to the car Kincaid is driving changes drastically between shots. Most noticeable right after he kills the motorcycle driver he does a jump and the hood and headlights break off. It cuts to the others running through the streets for a few seconds, then cuts back to him as he passes under a bridge - the front of the car is almost completely repaired as he is under the bridge, then changes back to damaged after he leaves.

A Bad Moms Christmas picture

Continuity mistake: When the moms are making gingerbread houses the candies on the houses change with each shot.

Atomic Blonde picture

Revealing mistake: During the car chase when the car gets hit by the truck and goes into slow motion you can see the roll cage inside the car.

Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales picture

Continuity mistake: In the movie Jack gets the compass from his former captain when he is dying in the battle with Salazar. In the second film we saw that Jack got the compass from Tia Dalma/Calypso.

Suggested correction: At some point in time, Jack lost possession of the compass. He later bartered it back from Tia Dalma who'd acquired it.

Logan (2017)

Logan picture

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.

Despicable Me 3 picture

Other mistake: When Clive turns the music tape to change side, he puts it in the wrong way.

Baby Driver picture

Other mistake: When Baby is in his boss' car, the boss puts both hands on the steering wheel, and then the sound of the car's engine starting can be heard. He could not have turned the key/ pushed the button with both hands on the steering wheel.

Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle picture
Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle mistake picture

New this month Visible crew/equipment: The scene where Spencer throws the boomerang for the first time and misses the bikers they take off running. While they are running from the bikers, there is a shot right before the boomerang hits the bikers where you can see a camera man sitting in the bushes on the left side. You don't have to pause it, but can to see it better.

Blickenstaff
London Heist picture

Continuity mistake: Towards the end of the movie the main character is shot in the thigh. In the next scene (the end of the movie) the character is seen holding a wound to the stomach - his thigh wound having disappeared.

xx:xx:xx

Thor: Ragnarok picture

Continuity mistake: When Karl Urban is defending the Asgardians, the dust covers on his rifles vary between being open and closed several times. M16 dust covers are sprung loaded - they open on the first shot and have to be manually closed afterwards.

Transformers: The Last Knight picture

Continuity mistake: During the junkyard fight when they show Sqweeks leaving his decepticon arm is missing, only to show up again when Megatron finds him.

The Saint picture

Factual error: The Saint steals gold. One gold bar in this movie measures 30cm x10cm at the base and 7 cm high with a 10 degree draft angle. That means about 2.1 liter size and weight of 40 kg for one gold bar. The Saint moves bars with one hand from the briefcase to the backpack, can run and hit etc. The backpack would weigh 240kg and somehow a man runs off with it one one hand.

JJ75
The Foreigner picture

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: Selene normally wears high heel boots. They briefly turn into flats during her caged fight with Varga, right before he betrays her.

xXx: Return of Xander Cage picture

Factual error: When Xander Cage is chasing Xiang on the dirt bikes, he lets his bike get entirely submerged, which would flood the engine.

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 picture

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.

The Mountain Between Us picture

Continuity mistake: Kate's makeup has her looking well healed while she is still sleeping in the cave, only to return to a swollen eye as she is rescued from the frozen lake.

Justice League picture

Continuity mistake: Bruce's beard changes length between when he talks with Diana in the Batcave and when they are walking beside the river while Cyborg is watching them.
