Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation

Factual error: Towards the end of the film, Solomon is trapped in a small Plexiglas box and fires his gun into the bulletproof sides numerous times, but the bullets don't ricochet or get embedded in the glass.

Revealing mistake: When Benji imagines putting on a mask of an agent he plans to impersonate, when the camera pans around to first show the mirror, the mirror Benji's hands are further up on his face than the reflection, and the mirror Benji's hands move down his face slightly before the reflection starts to move them. Also, the mole that Ethan has on his left cheek isn't reversed in the mirror image. The "mirror" was actually a hole in the wall between two identical sets (one mirrored), with Simon Pegg and a Tom Cruise double in the foreground, and the mask actor and Tom Cruise in the background "mirror" set. (00:57:20)

Continuity mistake: After reviving Ethan after escaping from the water tank, IIsa's bra strap is visible under her tank top. When she changes later, the bra disappears. (01:10:00)

Plot hole: Hunt cannot use metal air tanks to enter the server because they would be detected. It would be perfectly possible to use low pressure plastic ones - they wouldn't hold much, but enough for a few minutes.

Suggested correction: Low pressure diving equipment would still utilise some metal components.

Even a lemonade bottle would still hold a lungful of air.

Continuity mistake: The timer towards the end doesn't match up with the elapsed time, despite being a continuous sequence. It runs fast soon after it's started, then in the final seconds the audible beeps (one per second) are mismatched with the count.

Factual error: When the gas is turned on for the box, the red handle was moved to a right angle to the pipe which is standard for the off position.

Continuity mistake: Ilsa walks across Westminster Bridge, but in the very next shot after she has crossed the bridge she is walking towards it - she should be walking away from it.

Plot hole: Before the IMF team can exchange the yellow cards for the access control, they first need to know the data format/file type in which the access rights (retina, gait, fingerprints...) are stored. Otherwise, the computer will not recognize the data on the card, and display an error to the maintenance personnel. In order to figure this out, they would need to steal first some of these yellow cards and analyze the data on them, before they can fake a card which will be accepted by the computer.

Continuity mistake: When Ethan and the girl are sliding down the rope at the opera, in one shot, as it should be, her dress is up around her neck - that is all we see - and in another shot, the dress is down around her ankles, which it shouldn't be.

Factual error: During the car/bike chase the air bags for the car should have gone off many times, most notably when the car hits the truck with the bike rider on the bonnet.

Suggested correction: The collision mentioned above was an impact at the C-pillar of the BMW. As someone involved in several traffic accidents, I know airbags are not infallible. The only airbag that MAY have been activated would be the side curtain airbag and only if the impact was near the sensor. Normally, side curtain airbags activate only in rollovers or direct T-bones.
