Corrected entry: Towards the end of the film they resolve they must destroy the submarine and hence all of Prague to save the world - Why oh why does Samuel L. Jackson, and all the other executives, drive to the middle of the soon to be destroyed city? It seems a waste that such important people would be willing to die for no good reason, especially considering they had 30 minutes to get away and weren't even aware at first that Xander was actually on the sub. (01:49:45)
Corrected entry: Snowmobile's would never start as fast as they do when the thugs get on them to chase X. Snowmobiles have to be turned on, choked, primed, then the pull cord usually has to be pulled more than once. Also, they need time to warm up, you would never be able to jump on them, start them, and take off right away.
Corrected entry: When introducing themselves, the Ivans mispronounce their names. The 'I' must be pronounced as the 'ea' combi, like in 'leave', and the 'a' should be stressed. Instead their names sound English. Also Yorgi is a very strange name for a Russian, first time I hear it anyway. Might be short for Georgi (George), but it doesn't exist either as far as I know.
Corrected entry: During Gibbons Café test, Xander grabs the shotgun of one of the agents. As he was holding it, you could clearly see that the shotgun didn't have a trigger. So how did he get that shot off?
Corrected entry: If Yorgi knew all along that Yelena was a secret agent, why did he let her all around his fortress and let her access all of that stuff knowing she could one day put him in danger? (Near the end you see her opening a secret safe with guns.) It doesn't make sense. Furthermore, Yorgi finds out Xander is an agent, he knows Yelena is with him, and he orders his sniper to call her and make her help them kill him, not one bit suspecting that they might be together in it.
Corrected entry: During the scene where xXx was parasailing off Ahab, one of the stuntmen was killed when he smacked into the bridge he was supposed to go under.
Corrected entry: Most modern rocket launchers have a terrible blast from the back of the launch tube (dangerous for more than 50 m). So Xander's missile shot at the sniper would've been the death sentence for all the people around him, and, judging by the geometry of the room, for him just as well. It could be argued that he used a rocket propelled grenade - they don't have a blast behind them - however, first, I've never heard of a guided RPG, and, second, smoke can clearly be seen trailing the missile - it can only come from the burning propellant of the rocket motor. (01:38:35)
Corrected entry: When XXX and the girl are trailing AHAB in the GTO, just before XXX blows up the potato trucks we see a shot of him with his foot on the gas pedal, the pedal appears to be black and somewhat basic. Later, when XXX and the girl switch seats in the GTO she tells him brake, then gas and we see a shot of the gas pedal, this time the pedal is a racing type, it is a shiny metal with black treads.
Corrected entry: When escaping from the terrible avalanche, there's a shot showing X being eaten by the giant wave of snow. However, in the next shot the secret agent appears right ahead of the wave.
Corrected entry: At the end when the whole police force goes down to where Ahab is launched, one of the men gets shot as soon as he comes around the corner. Funnily enough Xander has enough time to come around and set up and launch the missile. The sniper wouldn't have lit a cigarette when he knows there's more people coming.
Corrected entry: In the scene where Xander drives the corvette off the bridge after being chased by the police at the start of the film, the shot changes to a far away shot where the whole bridge can be seen. If you look closely you can see Xander's first parachute emerge. However, when the shot then changes to one looking down from above him you can see Xander has not released his parachute and does not do so for at least another three or four seconds.
Corrected entry: In one scene XXX's gun still has the safety on and it doesn't shoot. When a gun's safety is on it would not make those clicking sounds. It would never let you move the trigger that far back. That sound is made by an empty gun.
Corrected entry: In the scene with the avalanche, it would not be possible to outrun one. You would have to be snowboarding at at least 300mph.
Corrected entry: After XXX has been 'recruited' and sent to Prague, we are shown the car with the two Ivans driving XXX through the city centre. The following things take place at the same time: a) the screen says 'Prague, Czech Republic' and b) one of the buildings in the middle of the screen can be seen sporting two Romanian flags.
Corrected entry: At the scene where Xander sticks the sticky explosives on the bikes he sticks it on the left side of the bike (right facing the camera). During the escape, the sticky explosive is on the right.
Corrected entry: The super-powerful binoculars had nine levels, the ninth being the 'penetrating mode.' When Xander tries them out, he only sees partially through the women doing target practice. Why then, later on, can he see perfectly through a one foot-thick wall?
