Corrected entry: Lara's 5-barrel dart gun, as mentioned on the DVD extras, is a real weapon. The Heckler & Koch P11 Underwater Pistol is manufactured for certain Special Forces units. Apparently, this weapon has never been officially acknowledge by H&K and does not appear on any official website. Well, thanks to Lara, that's that secret out. Check out http://www.hkpro.com/peleven.htm for more.
Corrected entry: On board the ship, Lara berates Terry for not shooting Reiss when he had the chance at the lab. Yet earlier during the Pagoda shoot out, just before she pole vaults onto the chopper, both Lara and Terry are in a position to gun down the helicopter in relative safety; most of Reiss' men are down on the ground. What's more, Reiss is hanging out of the chopper trying to haul the crate in. Easy target.
Corrected entry: When Lara has activated the orb and learned The Cradle of Life was in Africa, she tells Bryce to contact Sosa and have him meet her "with her Jeep at 8:00 north of his village". As soon as they break off contact, Reiss and his men pounce on Bryce....no time at all to contact a man in Africa.Alan Rice
Corrected entry: We are told by Terry that the Shay Ling's home is the most remote mountain range in China. However, we later see the orb being loaded onto a truck at this 'remote' hideout. Surely there are more remote places in China which don't have road links.
Corrected entry: In the scene where Lara and Reiss are in the area with the cradle of life (before Reiss dies), the box is near the center right of the acid pit. But when Reiss dangles Lara over the acid pit, the box is near the middle.
Corrected entry: When Lara is riding the horse and shooting at the targets, she turns around and faces backwards and shoots the last one as the helicopter is approaching, and then they show her riding the horse and the target is in the background and it's fully intact. (00:22:40)
Corrected entry: After escaping from the temple, Lara attracts a shark, punches it on the nose, and catches a ride to the surface on the shark. Since the shark is a fish and a water breather, I suspect it would dive rather than rise when faced with Lara riding.
Corrected entry: From the moment we see Lara in her wetsuit, through the Luna Temple sequence, you can see there is nothing attached to her harness on her right shoulder. Yet whilst in the water, trying to escape from the collapsing ruins, she suddenly acquires an emergency beacon. It's possible she could have pulled it from somewhere, but then how did she know she was going to need it? She didn't know Gus' boat was destroyed until after she surfaced.
Corrected entry: On the dive boat at the beginning of the film Lara says "Even if half the temple is intact it will still be the greatest find since the pyramids". Presumably she is talking about the Great Pyramids, but when were the pyramids ever lost? (00:05:10)
Corrected entry: When escaping the Luna Temple, Lara cuts her arm to lure the shark with her blood. Why? She already had a bleeding wound on her leg where she got shot. (00:11:40 - 00:14:15)
Corrected entry: When Sheridan is bandaging Lara Croft in the cradle of life, you can see him putting the bandages over what looks like a wristwratch. In the next scenes the bandages have moved higher on her arm and you can see the wristwatch. She could have pulled it up, but there are no traces of blood or anything on or around the wristwatch, it is totally clean, while earlier blood was dripping all over her hand.
Corrected entry: When Lara and Terry are 'hot dropped' into China their drop-pod is shown skitting along a lake like a skipping stone, careening towards a mountainside, totally out of control. Is that the way it was designed to operate? Isn't that a bit dangerous? And to leave the pod they eject while it's in 'mid-skid.' Considering that they had no way of controlling the pitch and yaw, ejection might have sent them down, sideways, or forwards. In this case they went UP and immediately DOWN - but physics dictates they would have been travelling forward with the same velocity as the drop-pod, which would have likely sent them into the mountainside to crash and die a painful, well-deserved death.
