Ghosts of Mars

Ghosts of Mars (2001)

8 mistakes

Revealing mistake: Have a look at the shot of the rear part of the train exploding as the locomotive pulls away from it. If there was ever a more obvious model shot, with cheesy, jerky bouncing toy trains and Action Man (TM) dolls, then I haven't seen it.

Add time

Plot hole: When the survivors first make an attempt to break out towards the station they kill numerous assailants at close quarters and yet only one of them (Uno) is infected. There must be dozens of the parasites floating around, enough to infect them all.

Add time

Continuity mistake: After Melanie's "plan A" failed since the train is not at the station the group fights its way back to the prison. During that fight they kill quite a lot of the possessed miners. But in one of the following scene when those freaks assemble in the streets and walk to the prison there are only four or five bodies lying around.

Add time

Continuity mistake: According to Ballard at the beginning, a captain wears two bars (as per modern US insignia). However, Braddock wears two bars and her rank is given as Commander throughout the film.

Add time

Continuity mistake: Early in the movie, when Ice Cube is accidentally released by the two rookie cops, Natasha Henstridge offers herself as a hostage to obtain the release of the blonde rookie. Ice cube switches hostages and holds a knife to Natasha's throat. Right as she slips out of his hold, the knife pushes against her neck and for a split second you see the blade bend.

Add time

Continuity mistake: In the train scene the rookie girl shoots, takes a step back and Ice Cube comes in front and throws a grenade. This happens 4 times, but in fact they just use the same footage 4 times.

Add time

Continuity mistake: When everyone is exiting the back door of the prison, the police officers and Ice Cube are fighting creatures in the ally. After Ice Cube moves out of the way, the last male police officer is fighting, and when he headbutts one of the creatures he does not make contact.

Add time

Plot hole: When the Police first enter Shining Canyon, they make a point of mentioning why they don't have to wear a full breathing mask, because of the goggles they wear. (!) Later on however, several people who are not infected are not wearing the goggles, so they shouldn't be able to breathe.
