Movies started to get back to normal this year, with plenty of big-screen blockbusters being back in cinemas, and that means plenty of eagle-eyed film fans noticing all the mistakes, large and small, which slipped through the net...

No Time to Die (2021)

James Bond was wearing a black tie when he visited Vespa Lynd's grave. This was still evident when he knocked Cyclops off his motorbike in the following action sequence. During the fight as he grapples with Cyclops, not only is the tie missing but the top few buttons of his shirt become undone.

Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings (2021)

Although it's a commonly used movie trope, cutting the brake lines on a bus would not produce the effect seen in the movie. Buses use air brakes, which by design, can operate even with substantial loss of pressure and often engage automatically if there is too much pressure loss.

Cruella (2021)

When Cruella as a child makes her way to London and crosses the zebra/pedestrian crossing, there are visible zig zag markings. These however were not introduced until 1971 in England, which is the time period when Cruella is older.

Black Widow (2021)

The sisters run out of fuel for the helicopter, which is then shown slamming down on the ground and essentially destroying itself. All helicopters are capable of autorotating safely to the ground in the event the engine(s) quit. Of course, that would not have been as dramatic.

Godzilla vs. Kong (2021)

Let's go by the movie geography; our planet is a big matrioska. By diagrams shown, this Hollow Earth would be by the Earth's core, thousands of miles deep. They enter from a portal in Antarctica. And yet, Godzilla later in the movie burns a random hole in the ground in HK deep enough to reach it, roars through it and Kong hears it, and the ape easily climbs it to poke back to the surface. Even admitting you can do the magic "1,000 miles in 2 seconds" warp anywhere, the scale is ludicrous.

The Suicide Squad (2021)

The government forces are rounding up the foreigners outside the bar. Bloodsport finishes his beer and puts it down; the bottle is facing opposite directions in the two shots, just look at the label.

Nobody (2021)

In one scene after Hutch is beaten up on the bus, he has no facial injuries. Then in the next scene, they are back.

Eternals (2021)

The police car that shows up after the fight with the Deviant in London has a siren that sounds nothing like a British police siren. More like a Continental European one.

Fast & Furious 9 (2021)

In the opening race scenes, the cars on the track are out of date for 1989. The race car used by the aggressive driver (#23) who causes the fiery accident that kills Toretto senior is based upon a later model 1997-2002 Pontiac Grand Prix. The race car that Toretto senior is driving is based on a 1995-1999 Chevy Monte Carlo.

Zack Snyder's Justice League (2021)

After realising they can track the mother box, Batman says they have to go back to his base to use one of his satellites to track it, and they all do so. Which completely ignores the fact that Cyborg could easily access the satellite feed directly using his abilities and display it to the others on any nearby screen in Star Labs.
