5th Passenger

Plot hole: Spoiler. Alana discovers the alternate memory pathways in the film while Eve is lying back in the chair with the Mem Scanner on showing it was actually Eve that killed the crew on the pod. But as she's watching it, shots show Eve in the background not wearing the Mem Scanner. So Alana watching the memory feed then would not be possible. It was not recorded and played back until later.

Revealing mistake: Eve says they need to make sure nobody gets shot, so she picks up Franklin's pistol and takes out the magazine to store them separately. However in this shot the magazine is completely empty with no bullets anyway. (00:53:40)

Continuity mistake: In the shots of Thompson space walking along the outside of their pod and the damaged pod, he's moving slowly in the wide shots. But in the close ups it shows him moving twice and even triple his speed of stepping.

Continuity mistake: As Thompson and Eve are looking from their pod to the wrecked pod they plan to salvage from, the other pod is turning showing the airlock door lining up with them. It cuts back to them and then back to the other pod, and the airlock is now back where it was turning to line up once again. It's slowly turning and they take the time to speak before jumping. When they jump, the two pods are still perfectly lined up together. But in that time the air lock on the other pod should have been facing completely the wrong direction on the other side by then.

Continuity mistake: After Thompson tries to kiss Eve and she tells him to wake up, he puts his left hand on his mouth rubbing his lips. It cuts to a different angle and suddenly it's his right hand as he pulls it away. (00:23:10)

Continuity mistake: Right at the start after they dock with the escape pod, three people enter and Kanelo calls out for Franklin. The guy behind Kanelo shines his flashlight to the right of the screen, but when it cuts to a close up of him, suddenly he's shining it towards the left of the screen. (00:03:15)

Other mistake: The spacesuit on the cover of the film looks almost nothing like the suits that are actually in the film itself.
