Ant-Man

Ant-Man (2015)

24 mistakes

Factual error: Twice in the film it is made clear that the Pym particle works by reducing the space between atoms in order to shrink an object, and by increasing it to enlarge them. This means that the object will weigh the same, whether shrunk or enlarged - it cannot be otherwise. A 90kg man the size of an ant would punch a hole through any surface upon which he stood (and couldn't ride ants), Doctor Pym has been walking about with a 60 tonne tank in his pocket, Darren Cross lifts a full grown sheep between finger and thumb, and the supersized Thomas The Tank Engine would be far too light to crush the police car (in fact it would float harmlessly away as it would probably weigh less than the air it displaced).

Factual error: In order to enter the Pym Tech building, they drop the pressure in the water main and Scott floats in on a raft of fire ants. Getting into it the supply line would mean they have to enter from the municipal main, which would be under full pressure. Even with reduced pressure, the interior pipe would still be full of water. Additionally, Scott would not be able to enter through a faucet unless someone had left it running (the valve would be closed).

Continuity mistake: Cross is holding a normal striker fired (no external hammer) Glock handgun against the head of Ant-Man. In order to save his life, Hope orders the ants to block the firing mechanism of the gun, and they block a suddenly-visible hammer on the Glock.

Factual error: If the Pym Particle works by reducing the space between Atoms to make an object smaller, the atoms themselves remain at normal size but are more closely packed together. It would, therefore, be impossible to "go sub-atomic" since the object obviously couldn't shrink and smaller than the size of the atoms it was composed of.

Jay Mallone

Factual error: In the water pipe scene, water pipes don't have printing on the inside of them. Bolt flanges are not inside pipes, and welds are not that close together, nor are the welds inside the pipe. Also how did he get to the faucet without someone turning on the water to that particular sink?

James Thomas

Continuity mistake: When Cross is on the model rail track, you see Thomas the tank engine fall off the track when he hits Cross. But in the next scene Cross throws him from the track.

Continuity mistake: When they are going over the plan for the last time at Pym's house a close up of Luis shows his top button undone, then the next close up it's done up with no time to do it.

Continuity mistake: When Cross is seen inside Hank's home, he is wearing black gloves, a few moments later, in the same scene you can see that he is not wearing them anymore.

Continuity mistake: Towards the end while Scott, Paxton and Cassie are eating, the steak on Cassie's plate moves between shots.

Plot hole: Paxton and his partner showing up in that family's back yard to tase and arrest Scott makes absolutely no sense. Firstly, they were following the helicopter. Apparently, they suspected there was someone in it they want to apprehend, but did they even know who or why. Remember, they know nothing about the shrink-tech at this point, and they just decided to leave the chaos at PymTech to follow it. Secondly, they decided that the briefcase, which they had somehow noticed fall out of the 'copter, was more important than whoever they were following in the 'copter (at night, no less). Thirdly, having decided the briefcase was more important, they somehow tracked it as it fell and went immediately to its exact landing point. It's difficult if not impossible to do something like that in broad daylight, let alone night time.

Suggested correction: This is just a bunch of assumptions that all can happen. For your first point, PymTech had just imploded, so they would be following the helicopter for an explanation of what happened, considering there was nothing they needed to do at PymTech since the emergency services were there. For your second point, they followed the briefcase (which they probably did notice), because the helicopter was spiralling out of control and was going to crash, so they thought they might grab the only possible evidence they have to find out what happened at PymTech, as anything else would be destroyed in the crash. And for the third one, they had the general area of where the briefcase fell, so they just needed to follow the screams.

Continuity mistake: After getting fired from Baskin-Robbins, Scott goes "home" to the Milgrom Hotel. As he approaches, there is a bicycle chained to a parking meter in front of the hotel; it is also visible in the close shot through the gate from inside. In the long inside shot from down the hall as Scott actually enters, the bike is gone.

Continuity mistake: When Scott uses the ant man suit for first time, he is on hot tube with a small red towel on it which disappears between shots. Not only this - the amount of food on the plate reduces and then increases during the scene.

Other mistake: Scott Lang is swept out of the tub after having shrunk for the first time. When he lands on the ceramic bathroom floor, falling roughly two feet, there is an audible glass breaking sound and it appears he has broken the flooring with his fall. He then falls through a plaster ceiling to free fall down to a turn table, landing on a plastic vinyl record played by a DJ. The album does not break despite him having fallen from three times the height and landing on a weaker material. Moments later, he is thrown through a second storey window and lands on a car in the street and his weight is now once again sufficient to form a small dent in the hood.

Continuity mistake: When Scott escapes from jail with the help of the ants, as he's flying through the trolley car he lands on a newspaper. From the position of the man's thumb, the picture is just a small part of the left side (his thumb lays over about half the width of the picture). When it cuts to the wide shot, the picture now covers more than half the page (width-wise).

Factual error: When going sub-atomic, Scott passes into an atom. The image shown is of the Rutherford model of the atom with electrons orbiting the nucleus. This model is incorrect and has been replaced with the more-accurate Bohr model of the atom.

Continuity mistake: When Scott wakes up after falling off Anthony, we can see the floor around the bed and there are no ants there. He then looks down and sees the bed is surrounded by ants.

Factual error: As they are heading back to the city, the scene switches back and forth from Luis to Scott. There is nothing but shrubbery visible through the window to Scott's right, but suddenly, there are two cuts in which they appear to be very close to an unidentified bridge. The closing shot on the scene shows the bridge to still be way off in the distance. The bridge would not have been off to their right if they were still approaching from the north.

Audio problem: Near the start of the movie, Darren Cross is showing the Yellowjacket armour to a group of some visitors. One person, named Frank begins talking with Cross about the armour. There is one shot shown during the talk, with the camera behind Frank's shoulder. In the shot, Frank is heard talking but his jaw is not shown moving along with the line.

Continuity mistake: Scott's stubble changes dramatically in three consecutive scenes - when his boss sacks him it is quite pronounced, but on his way home it is much lighter, and when he enters the apartment it is back to full-on stubble again.

Factual error: In the scene when The Wasp (Hank's wife) goes subatomic to deactivate a missile, you see the missile flying horizontally in the clouds. That is not possible. First, that missile does not have wings so it simply could not fly horizontally like an airplane. Second, Hank states it's a ICBM (Intercontinental Ballistic Missile). ICBMs have a circular trajectory with apogee at 1200km of altitude (750mi), WAY above the clouds.
