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.
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?
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.
Corrected entry: When Lara and Terry escape from the Shay-Ling on the ropes they use no gloves or any device to help clinch their hands on the ropes. Had they really gone down all that way using their bare hands to squeeze the ropes, they would have had no skin left in their palms upon reaching bottom.
Corrected entry: At the beginning of the movie, Lara climbs aboard the dive boat, shown in two shots that are meant to be consecutive. The first shot shows her reaching the top step of the ladder, and she is smiling. The second shot is at a different angle, she is still climbing the ladder, and she is not smiling.
Corrected entry: In the scene after the Greece incident where we come in through the Croft Manor ground and the gates, as the camera reaches the doors, there is a man standing by one of the potted plants by the doors. It's not Bryce or Hilary as they are inside.
Corrected entry: Due to stringent gun laws in Hong Kong, security guards and criminals do not carry guns as the punishment for that is a long jail sentence. Gangsters use low-level criminals to carry weapons, but those are all stolen police revolvers or Chinese pistols. Lara would also never have been able to get her guns into Hong Kong. All firearms used in the movie while shooting in Hong Kong were replicas.MGD
Corrected entry: In the beginning scene, Lara Croft is fighting a great white shark off the coast of Greece. Greece's coastline is on the Mediterranean sea, which is far too warm for a great white shark to be living in, as they are cold water animals. None of these creastures would ever be found in the Mediterranean sea.
Corrected entry: In the scene when Lara and Terry glide off the top of a building over the ocean, they deploy parachutes and land on a ship. The parachutes then disappear in the following wide angle shot.
Corrected entry: In the scene where Lara is leading Reiss to the Cradle of Life, Terry very obviously climbs out of a helicopter, he gets out the right side of the helicopter, so we assume he has just flown it. Then, after he knocks out the two security guards who are looking after Lara's two friends, he says "Do either of you boys know how to fly a helicopter?" Hello Mr. Sheridan, didn't you just fly one here?
Corrected entry: With the Luna Temple submerged in water all those years, wouldn't it have already been filled with water since the water is leaking in the cracks when Lara and the other people are there...if it had done it all those years wouldn't it have accumulated?
Corrected entry: After escaping from being handcuffed to the bed, how could Terry possibly have known that Lara would go to a boat to borrow television equipment - let alone which of the many hundreds of boats she would choose. It was shown that the boat she chose had a fancy radar thing, but it can't have been unique - the family living on it was nothing special.jle
Corrected entry: As Lara and Terry fly out to the meeting point in Hong Kong harbor, they eventually deploy their parachutes. As they land on the ship, you can see the parachutes coming down behind them, but when the camera cuts to a shot from far away, you no longer see the parachutes. What happened to the parachutes?Scorpious
