New this month Plot hole: At the angle of decent and the speed it was traveling (still burning from reentry even), when the space shuttle crashed in the opening of the film, it would not have left much of anything behind. The kinetic explosion that would have resulted would have downed the forest around it for a good distance leaving a crater, and the clean up crews would have been lucky to find any piece of the ship itself still intact bigger than a football. Much less been able to find any discernible remains of the crew. Yet bodies were being taken out in still relatively good condition. And probably most unbelievable is that the glass containers holding the Symbiotes were not even broken.

New this month Suggested correction: Since this is in the Marvel universe the capsule could have at least partially been made of Vibranium or Adamantium.

Adamantium is exclusive to the X-Men films which for the time being are under Fox, and Vibranium is exclusive to films within the Marvel Cinematic Universe. This film is part of neither. There were rumors and speculation prior to this film's release that it would be adjunct to the MCU, but there are things within the film that contradict it. Particularly Eddie Brock being dismissive of the symbiote being an alien life form. An alien invasion was one of the major plot points of the first Avengers film, so an alien being wouldn't be something people would be skeptical of going forward.

Like Phan said. But also, i'm referring to the glass of the container staying in tact. Those two super metals don't make glass.

I just thought that although there can't be a mention of Vibranium, it doesn't mean its not there. What I mean is if Vibranium softens the bow of the impact the glass containers would stay intact. But I suppose if its not allowed to exist for the films, then I guess it doesn't exist. The glass can be nanotechnology though.

I see what you're saying, but that wouldn't mater with an impact like that. Space Shuttles are even made of Titanium, and would still be smashed to millions of little pieces from a reentry impact like that. The momentum and resulting kinetic explosion would devastate everything around it and level the forest for a good distance, leaving a massive creator, possibly as big or bigger than a football field. We are talking a few megatons of force.

New this month Other mistake: After Eddie is being chased by Drake's henchmen he rides his bike but he never uses the key or the pedal to turn it on.

New this month Revealing mistake: When Drake's henchmen are chasing Eddie on the street while he is riding his bike on the sidewalk you can see the stunt man driving for him.

New this month Continuity mistake: During the car chase scene, Eddie and Venom squeeze between some cars and the enemy SUV behind him smashes through them. The headlights of the SUV get busted, but in the next shot the SUV is perfectly fine again.

New this month Factual error: When Venom is standing on top of a tall building, he falls off as a jet airliner passes over head with its loud engines hurting the Symbiote with its noise. The airliner passes very close to the building. But this would not happen as it is as FAA regulations are that an aircraft can not operate within 500 feet of any structure. And an airfield/airport would be positioned so that jets would not violate this decree on their landing descent.

Continuity mistake: At the end it is in the middle of the day when Eddie enters Mrs Chen's store, but when he exits the store only a few minutes later after Venom eats the robber, it is suddenly night.

Plot hole: The Riot symbiote inhabits the body of the paramedic immediately after the crash at the beginning, then goes into the body of an old woman who goes to the airport and proceeds to take control of a little girl who's going on a flight to San Fransisco. Riot then takes over Carlton Drake's body. The entirety of these events would need to have taken six months, for it to be consistent with the timeline of the rest of the film.

Continuity mistake: Tom Hardy wears a ring on his left index finger throughout the movie, but in the scene where he's watering the plant in the window of his apartment, the ring is on his right index finger, then switches back to the left hand in the next scene.

Continuity mistake: At the end when Anne and Eddie are sitting on the step talking we can see a man in the background walking towards them wearing a light grey/blue top. As the camera cuts to Anne and then Eddie the man disappears, he doesn't pass them as other people do and he doesn't cross the road.

Continuity mistake: When Eddie and Anne are on their date night Eddie starts laughing, we then cut to a view over his left shoulder and he's instantly not laughing or smiling.

Continuity mistake: When Anne and Dan get out of the car at Anne's apartment they start talking to Eddie and the car simply disappears during this scene - we don't see or hear it drive away as we should.

Factual error: When the Malaysian EMT is walking towards a Chinese market from the crashed ambulance, autumn leaves can be seen at the roadside. Malaysia is a tropical country, there shouldn't be any seasonal changes even if it's at Sibu, Sarawak, Borneo island.

Continuity mistake: The Ducati Scrambler doesn't have a mirror in the first scene, but during the car chase there is one suddenly on its left side.
