New this week Continuity mistake: When Wade opens up his hidden game room in a junk van, you get a clear view of the stuff inside it. It's a bit difficult to see, but on the left there is a white lamp next to the gray face sensor thing that he puts around his neck visible there. Once he turns the power on and leans that direction, it cuts to a close up of the face sensor by that white lamp and suddenly a hanging red lamp appears next to it. It was not just off in the previous shot, if you look closely it's just not there at all. As you should be able to see its red hanging structure and metal next to the other items. (00:02:40)Quantom X
New this week Continuity mistake: Right in the beginning, Wade hops out a window from his home and starts walking beside it to the edge to climb to the next level down. As he starts walking he passes by another window with a curtain. It then cuts to a closer angle and suddenly the window no longer has a curtain. Also a wire appears on the wall in front of him. And you can tell it is the same house, not a time jump, as the rust at the to of the window frame is exactly the same. (00:01:15)Quantom X
Factual error: The third key Easter egg was actually a color-changing flashing pixel in the Atari Adventure game. You had to grab the purple bridge (they looked like outward facing brackets) and go into a box in the lower left corner of the blue maze and move along the bottom left corner. In the movie, it was picked up in the invisible maze. The wall you walk through then flashes along with the pixel, and you may move through it as shown in the movie to see the author's name.
Plot hole: During the final battle, we see all the other players charging over the hill and running into battle. We later see that these are just players standing on the streets wearing VR visors. But unlike our hero who is dangling on wires (and used a treadmill earlier on)...nobody on the streets is using any such thing. Which means when they are charging or running, they would all be crashing into walls or any obstacles that get in their way. Certainly nothing like the film.
