The Hurricane Heist picture

Factual error: The repairman was freeing the soldiers from inside the locked gate using bolt cutters. The terrorist noticed this on the video feed so they electrified the fence, shocking the repairman. This would not have happened because the bolt cutters have plastic handles just for that reason, to keep you from being electrocuted by mistake. (00:54:50)

Character mistake: During the opening raid of the FSB safe house, an operator is seen taking hard drives out of a safe. As he does, he states over the radio that they are "SSDs" (Solid State Drives), when in reality they are normal HDDs (Hard Disk Drives), which are noticeably larger than SSDs. (00:07:25)

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)

Black Water picture

Plot hole: Kingsley holds the only key card that can access the control room where the Captain is. He only has one card. He gives this key card to Rhodes so he can go up there and talk the Captain into not taking the sub to the surface yet, while Kingsley and his men head down to stop Scott and Taylor. When they employ the help of Marco and take out Kingsley and his men, Marco bends down and pulls the key card off Kingsley's neck so that now they have it... only Kingsley didn't have the key any more, as Rhodes had it and was still in the control room. A second key card magically materialized on Kingsley's neck.

Suggested correction: Kingsley only took the keycard from his neck to open the door and then hold it in his hand, so I guess he actually didn't give it to Rhodes. Just opened the doors.

Insidious: The Last Key picture

Other mistake: At the end of the movie Lorraine has to remind Elise that she helped her once, implying they haven't seen, or spoken since. When Elise first meets Josh in the 1st insidious she tells Josh that her and Lorraine have been friends for a long time, implying they talk or see each other regularly.

Suggested correction: It doesn't happen on screen. We don't see how she even kills them. It's not shown how she got their bodies up there and she could have accomplished this by any number of means.

Factual error: Lt. Talbot is wearing a US Army (National Guard) uniform with his name tape saying "LT. TALBOT". Name tapes do not show rank. The rank is worn on the Battle Dress Uniform on a tab on the chest. (01:23:55)
