Mission: Impossible - Fallout

New this month Continuity mistake: The scenes in London show the Thames river at low tide in some shots and at high tide in others.


New this month Character mistake: Benji doesn't want to shoot the padlock off a container because he believes a nuclear bomb may be inside and he doesn't want to risk a ricochet setting it off. Someone with Benji's knowledge and background should know full well that nuclear fusion doesn't work that way. Moreover, he should also know that picking up a cylinder full of pure oxygen (which is highly, extremely flammable) and slamming hard it against the padlock is far, far more likely to cause a devastating explosion that would take out a significant portion of the medical centre, especially considering there are several other O2 cylinders just a few feet away.

New this month Suggested correction: Benji was likely more concerned with damaging the bomb itself, since any detected attempts to disarm the weapon would cause it to detonate. This is why they had to find both bombs and deactivate the trigger before they could disarm either. As for the cylinder, he likely found one that was depleted.

It's shown in real time - he never checks the cylinder's contents.

He was in a store room of things being packed up to close the camp with the gas cylinder left lying around. Full and depleted gas cylinders wouldn't be stored together. Full ones would be stored in a cage to prevent them being knocked over and leaking their contents, empty ones are more likely to be stored out of a cage.

All gas cylinders are supposed to be stored in cages. Even 'empty' ones can still have a little gas left in them to won't read on the contents gauge (it simply would be equalised with ambient pressure and not escape the bottle). A tiny amount of O2 in an 'empty' cylinder would still cause a pretty big bang.

New this month Plot hole: On the plane they are told they have 2 mins to suit up, then once suited up they have a further 10 seconds before the rear door opens. 2 minutes is not enough time to put the equipment on to do the halo jump.

New this month Continuity mistake: During the getaway in the 4-door olive-green BMW, in one shot, the driver's headrest is bent forward; in the next shot, it is shown back in the straight-up position.

New this month Continuity mistake: The amount of blood on Hunt's face changes during the last fight against Walker.
