Best action movie mistakes of 2017

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.

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.

Awesomolocity
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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Fast & Furious 8 picture

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.

Suggested correction: Russia lost a number nuclear weaponry to Russian militants. They would be resistive to government request to deactivate those weapons.

Kong: Skull Island picture

Factual error: Ka-Bar knives with serrations on the blade were not sold until the 1990s.

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.

Geostorm picture

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.

DetectiveGadget85
The Hitman's Bodyguard picture

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.

John Poole
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.

Kit Sullivan
London Heist picture

New this month 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.

Despicable Me 3 picture

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.

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.

Transformers: The Last Knight picture

Other mistake: Opening battle: 2 horsemen are hit by fireball mortars and fall from their horses. Moments later, the same horsemen are hit by arrows and fall again. It's the same footage - reused.

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.

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.

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.

Thor: Ragnarok picture

Continuity mistake: Banner is covered in green powder, but when he is separated from Thor the powder covering his face and hair is suddenly gone.

Add time

The Lego Batman Movie picture

Plot hole: The film makes many references to the previous films and TV series as evidence of Batman's desire to be alone, but in the TV show and two of the films Robin has been established as his sidekick already.
