Last Action Hero

Plot hole: It is firmly established in the last half of the film that movie characters and movie weapons do inflict damage and death in the real world. However, early in the film, a bundle of dynamite comes straight through the movie screen and explodes in the real world movie theatre. That quantity of dynamite should have gutted the theatre, easily; but, when Danny Madigan and Jack Slater cross from the movie world back into the real world, there is absolutely no damage to the theatre.

Charles Austin Miller

Visible crew/equipment: When Charles Dance shoots his boss in the swimming pool, he starts talking to the camera about moving into the real world like Danny. Look at the glass mirror and windows behind him - you can see the film crew and cameras following him.
