6 Underground

Continuity mistake: The green Alfa in the opening minutes has its side, and mirror, wiped out by a lorry. For the next 5 minutes it then drives around in perfect condition. (00:05:43)

Continuity mistake: At the beginning of the movie when the green car is being chased, the driver has a baseball cap on and off all the way through the chase.

Continuity mistake: When blood gushes out of the bullet wound during 05's introduction, in the first slo-mo the squirt goes diagonally across her eye. Then all that is left is a horizontal streak from the mouth. It is implied that between cuts she fit her glove by biting it, so the inconsistency can be explained (even if just a rushed wipe would hardly clean her completely). The real mistakes are: 1 - she has a dotted streak of blood before and after, entirely inconsistent with those close-ups, and 2 - when Ryan Reynolds and Dave Franco are talking about the 'squirting', you can see in the background Adria Arjona's face is totally clean. (00:07:55)


Continuity mistake: During the car chase in Florence, they are suddenly in Siena, the Piazza del Campo. (00:10:24)

Continuity mistake: During the "Baby! Baby!" scene, multiple flubs happen. To name a few; in the POV shot they are this close to hitting the woman with the baby, but she is at a greater distance right after; in one shot her bag is on the ground and not on her shoulder; two pigeons fly in front of her, but in another take one even connects with her hair; people watching horrified by the monument and in the piazza itself appear and disappear between shots, Ryan Reynolds is sticking his head out in close-ups but is nowhere to be seen in the other angles. Finally, plenty of skidmarks are already visible on the asphalt. (00:06:30)


Continuity mistake: One baddie is chasing the 'ghosts' riding a motorbike. Ryan Reynolds announces that "He's got a gun." We do see him pull the gun out...but then he is riding gun-less as if it were never there. Of course he could have just pulled it out for no reason, and with the fast montage he could have put it back in his pants between shots. Problem is, when Two blows his brains out later, he is pointing the gun in one shot, and holding the brake with that same hand in the shot right after. (00:07:15)


Continuity mistake: In the car chase at the beginning of the movie, there's a phase when 2 says she's getting carsick. The car is taking a turn and entering a street through a part of the square that is in the shadows. Cut, and the Alfa is accessing the road moving on asphalt in full sunlight. (00:08:50)


Continuity mistake: When the fighting is happening on the ship near the end, at several points, the sun is coming up. In other angles, it's pitch black.


Continuity mistake: Whilst in the plane flying over Mongolia towards Hong Kong, the in flight map indicates they are in Dubai.

Upvote valid corrections to help move entries into the corrections section.

Suggested correction: The map that appears one the monitor within the plane is not a real place. The cities are Faladah, Al-Davah, Raltta and more. If you search for them they do not exist. Maybe because the country is fictitious as well.

The map is real, left side is the UAE and Oman is on the right, I used to live there and know the geography of the region well, also half the movie was filmed in Abu Dhabi. So the map is correct it's just that threw in some fictional names.

Continuity mistake: Whilst driving through dense Florence, you see a luscious green field through the window behind Reynolds.

Continuity mistake: Whilst in Hong Kong, when the two brothers from Turkistan are talking. The handler holds a tablet between his arms over his belly, next shot the tablet is in his right hand screen outwards, third shot (twice) he has no tablet, fourth shot the tables is again in his has but screen turned inwards, and finally fifth shot again has tablet in right arm screen outwards. (01:03:28 - 01:04:50)

Continuity mistake: In the beginning car chase there are several scenes where there is a sunroof above Ryan Reynolds' head. The Alfa Romeo Quadrafolio does not have a sunroof option. Multiple exterior shots of the car show there is indeed no sunroof. However, when they cut back to the interior, there is one.

Continuity mistake: When Rovach is the top of the building choosing new generals, the building they're on is rectangular, however when the generals are thrown over they start falling from the side of a round building (really the Aldar headquarters in Abu Dhabi). (00:56:30)

Continuity mistake: In the first minutes of the movie, one of the cars from the bad guys' infinite supply comes beside the getaway car of the protagonists. Six does what good guys in movies are always able to do; stomps harder on the gas pedal, thus sprinting ahead. We see then the car take a left turn, with the camera positioned behind a bystander with a Ronaldo shirt. But what follows is more shots of the car still driving through the road it supposedly already left (including different natural light in a POV shot). (00:04:15)


Continuity mistake: During the jewellery heist in Four's backstory, when he meets One, director Michael Bay splices in a few seconds of footage from a completely different film (and not his own). Despite supposedly being set somewhere in Europe, at one point in the escape sequence, the thieves are jumping between tower blocks in Hong Kong (and in completely different clothing). This is actually footage from Roof Culture Asia - a feature film by the parkour stunt team involved in the film (Storror).

Continuity mistake: Ben Hardy is miraculously dry when scaling the Hong Kong skyscraper, shortly after nearly drowning in the penthouse swimming pool.

Continuity mistake: The black BMW chasing the green Alfa crashes, only to miraculously become a Mercedes.

Continuity mistake: The green Alfa in the opening minutes has its side, and mirror, wiped out by a lorry. For the next 5 minutes it then drives around in perfect condition. (00:05:43)

6 Underground trivia picture

Trivia: During one epic car crash near the start, just after the shooter gets taken out by the digger, if you know what to look for you can see Ryan Reynolds in the background, filming a post/advert for social media. Not a mistake, because it's just a tiny figure at the back of shot, but pairing the film and the post together it's fun to look for. (00:14:42)
