Gemini Man

Factual error: A fire is raging in a hardware store. The sprinklers come on. After the fire is out, the sprinklers shut off. Without anybody shutting them off. That's not the way automatic sprinklers work. Once the fusible link melts, they are on continuously until manually shut off at the valve, usually outside of the building. (01:35:20)

Revealing mistake: A SWAT Team is conducting an exercise. At one point a smoke grenade is rolling on the ground, going under a vehicle, and then rising in the air prior to another shot showing it exploding. A smoke grenade does not rise in the air prior to exploding. What occurred here is that the scene was filmed in reverse (or with the camera upside down), with someone throwing the smoke grenade down from the vehicle and having it roll along the ground towards the camera. The scene was then straightened out in editing to give the impression it was rolling away from the camera. (00:48:05)

Continuity mistake: When Henry and Junior are in a car, they are suddenly confronted by a roadblock and a missile is fired at their car. After they jump out, the missile hits the front of the car, and the car goes up in the air and somersaults forward. If a car is hit by a missile on the front, the last direction the car is going to go is forward towards from where the missile came from. (01:26:45)

Continuity mistake: In the movie ending, the three main characters (and two main actors) are walking off together following Will Smith Sr. That 'knows a place' to eat. Notice on the left part of the frame, along the path they are traveling, a couple of students; he has a beige jacket, yellow-ish sneakers and jeans, she has a blue jacket, and they are talking with another girl with a lighter blue jacket. In the next shot Danny asks him "So you settled down on major yet?" and the two aforementioned students are behind them, standing at the beginning of the walkway. (01:45:35)

Revealing mistake: A major selling point of the movie is the CGI technology used to de-age Will Smith. The effect works for the most part of the movie, including scenes in daylight, but in the last handful of minutes, maybe because of the plain 'happy-ending' light used, maybe for budget reasons, the face of Junior is thoroughly unconvincing, with a dramatic drop in quality in textures and modelization.

Continuity mistake: Junior confronts his fake dad in his office. Clay puts his glasses down and they are initially on a sheet of paper by his keyboard. But in a closer angle after junior names "The lab guys who made me" the glasses have changed position, being on the desk by the folder Clay Verris was working on with his awkward typing. (01:18:00)

Continuity mistake: When Will Smith's clone decides to try and kill him by beating him up with his bike, the shadows next to the car change wildly; it is particularly obvious when the middle-aged one springs into air from lying down on his belly into a huge shadow that just was not there.

Continuity mistake: The morning after escaping from Brogan's house, Danny is eating some crackers. In the first shot she passes the box from her left hand to the right, in the next, Brogan points out that they are long expired while she is holding the box still in the left hand and a new cracker in the right. (00:22:50)

Continuity mistake: When Junior takes a swing at his 'dad' with the rear of his bike sending him flying against the car, notice how at the beginning of the shot with the camera positioned overhead the side mirror is folded, either to make the stunt easier or because during some take it was knocked back that way. The same mirror is in its normal outwards position in the rest of the scene. (00:40:50)

Continuity mistake: On his second bike, Junior passes a bridge, cuts a corner with an acrobatic jump and begins chasing Henry through a second bridge, longer, wider and crowded with people with hats and shirts.The position of a few of those guys (like the one with the green shirt) doesn't match between POV and reverse. (00:39:40)

Continuity mistake: At the culmination of his bike-fu Young Will Smith torpedoes the motorcycles at his older self; the move initiates with a wind-up time marked by a huge skidmark on the asphalt. But in the next shot there's no mark, and the kamikaze run starts from a different point. (00:41:25)

Continuity mistake: At the traffic lights, Junior receives a 'call' through his ear bud from Clay Verris. In close-up the young Will Smith has his raised hand with his fingers curled, but in the next shot they have straightened up some. (01:27:10)

Continuity mistake: Junior's DNA-laden baseball hat changes position on the ground the first two times it is shown, slightly, and it is in a different spot where big slabs of asphalt meet as Danny retrieves it. (00:41:30)

Continuity mistake: Brogan is apologizing to Danny for his inquisitive demeanor as she is talking to a customer. The sat phone by the monitor is in a different position between takes - look at how its antenna is entirely on the blue pad or pokes out of it. (00:15:20)

Continuity mistake: Brogan comes back from his little boat trip and confronts Danny with the bug he found in the console. During the sequence with her sitting by her book, the wires on the desk (her headphones') change position multiple times between shots. (00:13:45)

Continuity mistake: Henry is on Jack's boat. Jack displays on his computer the photo of Henry's victim and asks him if he knew who he was. When Henry answers "Valery Dormov, terrorist", look at the table between them. When the angle changes, Jack's hand is in the sunlight, while there was none on the table in the earlier view.

Continuity mistake: When Henry kills his mortal enemy after picking the change up from Danny, dollar notes stick out from his wallet, but he had already tucked away neatly the cash in the earlier, closer shot. Danny's expression at the next cut also changes. (00:08:00)

Continuity mistake: First meeting between Will Smith and Mary Elizabeth Winstead; he asks "Where's Jerry?" and she puts her white and blue pen down. But in the next shot, she is holding it. As the scene continues, the pen jumps back to the table and switches position in virtually every cut. (00:07:30)

Continuity mistake: After what he plans to be his last hit, Henry Brogan does some product placement and sits down with his boss Del that came to him to visit. The couch next to Del has a big area lit by sunlight, but during his close-ups there is no direct light on that spot. (00:06:00)

Plot hole: While a tracker can certainly make it so that Junior knows where Brogan is at a given moment, it is impossible for Junior to know where exactly the plane is going to land and be lying in wait, with Brogan walking right past him. Junior would have to be well ahead of the plane in order to do that, and know exactly what direction Brogan would walk to cut him off and ambush him.

Henry: I'm not gonna shoot you.
Junior: Mind if I shoot you?
