Gemini Man

Other mistake: When junior is chasing Henry, Danny and Baron can be seen watching the chase, this would be impossible considering it wasn't long before Henry left the house after spotting Junior, and how would they have known which way Henry would go. (00:40:20 - 00:42:16)

Factual error: During the bike chase, Henry is able to neutralize the first bike that Junior is riding. The bike falls down and explodes inches to the right of Henry's, who is riding at top speed, and is completely unfazed by it, does not even wobble. (00:39:15)

Continuity mistake: The first time we see Baron there is a little introductory dialogue with him. At the end he ask for one of Danny's (expired) crackers. He then turns around and her right hand rises to pick a new one - but in the next shot she is holding the box with that hand and the cracker is in her left. (00:27:55)

Continuity mistake: Will Smith and Mary Elizabeth Winstead react to the explosion of the van with different speed between shots. From behind, she raises her arms first, but in the frontal view her reaction is delayed compared to Smith's. (01:27:55)

Continuity mistake: Henry shoots the tire of a car to slow down his pursuing clone. Junior is trying to pass the car to the right as it sways out of control.The zone of asphalt he is speeding through is in the shadow, but at the next cut, when he actually manages to pass in ridiculous fashion, the road is uniformly lit.

Revealing mistake: During the drill that follows Junior's return 'home' in Georgia, the extras who flee from the building and run in the street split in two, left and right of the camera position (one guy even slows down his run quite obviously to avoid tripping the offscreen equipment).

Revealing mistake: Henry is being chased by Junior on his second bike. In a POV shot as Junior crosses the bridge, you can see he is dodged by a guy wearing a yellow baseball bat and a red Hawaiian shirt. Only, in the reverse angle (the bike coming out of the bridge) the cap stays yellow but the shirt turned inexplicably grey. (00:39:30)

Continuity mistake: After the two protagonists escape, the bad guy and the DIA director assess the situation. Linda Emond is holding the tablet in her lap after Clive Owen angrily handed it back to her; it is positioned 90° differently between shots though. (00:24:50)

Continuity mistake: Outside of Pelican Point, Danny asks Henry why is he retiring. Will Smith's hand is at the level of his 4 buttoned shirt button as he sighs to reply, which he does in the following shot, where his hand is definitely held up higher. (00:17:45)

Plot hole: Apparently, in 20 years Junior and his dad never once discussed the subject of his birthday, aka "If I am an orphan, how do we know when my birthday is." It is something that can have so many perfectly innocent explanations that Junior can't verify ("It's the day I found you" being one) that would be tremendously odd and inconsiderate of the manipulative villain to not even have conceived a shred of a back story for it (in fact he should have been the one feeding it to him first at a young age).

Plot hole: The villain is hellbent on killing Henry, or his secret cloning project may be exposed. His 'son' Junior fails to kill Henry in Hungary in a train of events starting at midnight, local time, and that takes at least an hour between action and mundane offscreen necessities like flight preparations. He then shows up in his office in Georgia to inform him of his failure. It was a flight over 8,000 kms long; let's factor in the 6 hours time difference between Budapest and the EST and assume he took off right away; his dad is at the office at 3 or 4 AM, unsuspecting and quietly doing other work apparently unrelated to the most important matter his whole business hinges on, not a worry about Brogan being obviously not dead (he knows where he is due to the chip). And there is enough time left in the night for all the big climax of the movie to happen, including mobilizing a large force for urban combat without a soul in the streets.

Plot hole: Mending the wounds Junior received in the Colombian mission, Clay asks him "Did you get a look at his face?" And Junior replies "Not really. I saw him at the stairs through a dirty mirror." First big issue; do we have to believe that the guy was sent to kill Henry without knowing how he looks? We do learn later in the movie that Henry has been chipped, but Junior is stalking him as a sniper/hunter and is not using a HUD to track him. Plus, the movie explicitly negated it earlier; Henry himself in Cartagena asked Junior "Did they show you a picture of me?" to which he replied "Yeah, you look old." So Clay's question is really odd and suspect (if anything draws attention on something he should be trying to hide). Second problem; Junior fought Henry in a close-up fight at the end of the chase, the mirror bit was not their only encounter! Why would he lie to his supposed father, especially when he is trying to get answers from him? (00:47:00)

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