New this month Plot hole: After his breakout from the Life Foundation building, and being chased by their security teams, Eddie crashes through a fallen tree and then comes to a full stop while assessing his options. Two guards with guns are right on his heels, less than 20 feet behind him. Two all-terrain vehicles with more guards are speeding towards him from both his left and his right. Both vehicles are less than 30 feet on either side of him. And yet, somehow, he manages to disappear up a tree, with 6 guards on three sides of him-all within 20-30 feet and with a clear view of him-without any of them knowing where he went. Eluding one or two guards might be explained away, but not 6 with unobstructed views from that distance. And especially not the level of security that these guys are throughout the movie.

New this month Continuity mistake: When Eddie and Dr. Skirth enter the Life Foundation building, it is nighttime. However, when the symbiote bonds with Eddie and he breaks out of the facility shortly afterwards, and is being chased by the security teams, it is foggy daylight. (00:33:20 - 00:37:30)Andrew Bauer
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.Quantom X
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.Joey221995
Continuity mistake: When Anne breaks up with Eddie on the sidewalk right after they get fired from their jobs, she approaches him and drops the box she is carrying. A ceramic mug falls out of the box. There is both visual and audible confirmation. After putting her ring in his shirt pocket, she bends to pick up the empty box and proceeds to walk away without also retrieving the missing contents. (00:14:45)
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.Quantom X
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.
Revealing mistake: After the spaceship crashes to the Earth, the ambulance rushes the wounded astronauts to the hospital. On the way, a symbiote takes control of one man, and kills the emergency vehicle's driver, causing the van to wreck. The final shot of this wreck when the ambulance takes the last roll and stops on its side, shows the CGI involved with the unnatural movement of the van. (00:03:50)
