Factual error: Rhianna is watching a live feed of a man's office via webcam. We see a closeup of the screen. At the top it shows the filename being a ".jpeg." Jpegs are still image files, not movies, let alone live streams.

Skyscraper picture Video

Plot hole: Spoiler alert! The entire plot hinges on the villain's gang obtaining the tablet that allows admin access to the building's systems. However, it can only be unlocked via facial recognition and it is keyed only to Will Sawyer's face. In fact, when they finally do get it, Xia unlocks it by holding it up to Sawyer's face. So what was the point of trying to steal the backpack containing the tablet? Without Will to unlock it, the tablet is useless.

Reprisal picture

Revealing mistake: During the police chase with Gabriel on his motorcycle, he stops and turns to start shooting at one of the cops. By appearances, Gabriel is using a standard Glock which had a magazine capacity of 15 rounds. He has no extensions on it at all with the handle and magazine visible. Yet he proceeds to fire the gun 33-35 times at the cop car without reloading and in continuous fire. (00:57:55)

Death Wish picture

Factual error: No way Kersey leaves the gun shop same day with a full auto AR-15. It would take boatloads of paperwork, waiting, and registration with the federal government. He could have bought a conventional semi-auto AR-15 much more easily.

SuperFly picture

Continuity mistake: When Youngblood and Georgina throw the molotov cocktails at Juju from the balcony, watch closely - right as Youngblood throws the second molotov cocktail and the camera cuts from a bird's eye to a ground-level angle, the position of the two men and the carpet they're standing on changes between cuts.
