London Has Fallen

Plot hole: After an assault on the scale that's been witnessed, covering a wide area of London by extremely well prepared attackers, there's no way Marine 1 would fly to the airport at low altitude within easy range of missiles, and then when attacked, double back over the areas that have already been attacked where hostiles would still be present.

Character mistake: When Mike and the SAS team leader first meet, the team leader introduces himself as Will Davis, Captain. However at the near end when they say goodbye to each other, Mike addresses him as Lieutenant. (01:07:35 - 01:25:35)

Continuity mistake: When the helicopter has crashed and the President and Banning are standing outside, Banning removes his radio and earpiece and throws them to the ground. The earpiece is back in the next shot.

Factual error: When they spot the guy with the missile from the helicopter, the pilot says "we're being pinged", and Banning says "stingers." Stinger missiles are infra-red seeking, passively tracking the heat of a target, so there's no way to know if you're being tracked by one or not. As a highly-trained secret service agent, he'd know that.

Other mistake: The agent infiltrates Barkawi's daughter's wedding and sends a message to the US military to bomb the place remotely. On the agent's phone he types "Barkawi on sight" and clicks send, but there is no phone number or contact.

Factual error: The role of MI6 shown in the film actually falls under the purview of MI5, Britain's domestic intelligence service; as the country's version of the CIA, MI6's mandate is the covert collection of foreign intelligence overseas.

Character mistake: When Mike is watching a news report about the Prime Minister's death, a British reporter uses the American pronunciation of "schedule." Not something that happens on British news channels.

Factual error: When the President is getting out of his car, we see the thin doors, like any usual car. However, in reality, Cadillac One has thick doors that weigh as much a Boeing 757 door. Not to mention the vulnerability of the car used in the movie. There's a reason why the Cadillac One is nicknamed "the beast."

Continuity mistake: When Mike is telling the President the route to the chapel, it is a close up and when Mike says "It's a cluster ****" the president is looking at him nodding, but it then cuts to behind Lynne Jacob's and he is staring at the map.


Continuity mistake: When Banning fights three terrorists when the lights come back on, the 3rd gunman's gun changes from a rifle to a sub. (01:16:35)

Continuity mistake: When the US President gets to London and gets out from the chopper, the sun changes between shots.
