Corrected entry: When Jyn and Cassian retrieve the death star plans they decide to use their shuttle to deliver the plans to the rebels. They scrap that plan once they realise that the planetary shield is up, which would block their escape. So they decide to transmit the plans digitally. But the shield would block their transmission so they get the rebels to blow it up. If either of their plans required the destruction of the shield then they should have used their shuttle to transport the plans. Then they probably would have survived the destruction of the planet.
Corrected entry: After the corvette escapes at the end, Darth Vader is standing at the edge of the hanger, and his cape is fluttering in the breeze. Only problem is they're in space, with no wind, or high enough that the atmosphere is so thin that there's no wind. Or there's a forcefield closing off the hanger from the outside, so no wind. And even if it's that air is rushing out of the ship due to the vacuum, his cape would be blowing towards the hole, not away from it. Plus the troopers behind him would all be asphyxiated - their suits aren't space suits.
Corrected entry: At the end, it would be impossible for Cassian to climb up to the platform in his condition and save Jyn from Director Krennic; he wouldn't be able to get through the very fast opening and closing hatch like Jyn did.
Corrected entry: At the platform where Jyn's father dies, she nearly gets blown into a hole by the starship's engines. But none of the bodies on the platform move or get blown away as well, despite the platform being covered in slippery water.
Corrected entry: When the blockade runner leaves at the end, Darth Vader comes out onto the platform with two Stormtroopers behind him. The scene then cuts to a shot of the Blockade Runner. When the shot cuts back to Vader, the Stormtroopers are gone.
Corrected entry: The last stormtrooper to get shot on Jedha is shot in the head at point blank range but there is no damage to the helmet or stormtrooper.
Corrected entry: When Jyn is given her mother's necklace at the start, which is quite large and noticeable, her mother goes to tie it around her neck, then the shot cuts and it's instantly tucked inside her closed jacket out of sight.
Corrected entry: Just before Saw dies on Jedha his breathing mask is missing from the front of his outfit, it's fitted through a ring on his chest plate so he couldn't have taken it off.
Corrected entry: C3PO and R2D2 are still at the rebel base on Yavin 4 when the rebel fleet leaves for Scarif, and the corvette with Princess Leia on it is part of that fleet, as we see at the end, placing the end of this movie right before the start of A New Hope. But R2 is on that corvette too, as Leia gives him the plans in the original movie. Obviously the princess didn't stop off at Yavin 4 to pick them up, as she just would have given the plans to the rebels there and then.Paul Weston
