Plot hole: When Spartan jumps through the window in the excavation scene of the museum, he crashes into a room with bottles of drink on the shelves. Surely this room too would have been filled in and the window smashed during the earthquake, and the museum wouldn't have bothered to excavate it as it can't be seen from above due to the blanked out window. So what is that room doing there? (00:49:20)
Continuity mistake: When Spartan and Phoenix are fighting in the sewers, Edgar Friendly shoots his gun at Phoenix and you see the catwalk that Phoenix was on tip to its side and Phoenix dropping down to the ground with the plank of the catwalk right below him. When Phoenix lands on the ground the plank is nowhere to be seen. It should have been right below him. (01:19:25 - 01:30:30)MCKD
Trivia: The 'particle gun' that Phoenix picks up in the museum is actually a prototype of the real-life Heckler&Koch G11 rifle, the first gun ever to fire caseless ammunition. The gun and its ammo were developed in the Cold War to save the expenses for the cartridge case production. It was tested and modified for field use, but with the collapse of the Soviet state (which ended the Cold War) in 1991, the production program was cancelled. (00:45:30)
