Corrected entry: At the scene they talk about the Council of Nicea, Leigh calls Sophie 'Mon cher.' However, Sophie is a female and would be 'Ma chére'
Corrected entry: Teabing at one point makes the comment that the Bible refers to the cup used at the last supper as the Grail. The Bible does not do this. It gets no mention at all, actually. It was not for several centuries, until the romance of the Grail was written that the cup is given 'magical' powers.
Corrected entry: After Robert knocks Vernet to the ground behind the armored car, he yells to Sophie to get in the truck. She jumps out of the back, runs around to the passenger door and gets in while Vernet is shooting at her. That door would still have been locked. When Vernet got out of his side, he couldn't have accidently hit the auto unlock because armored cars only have auto locks, no unlock. A passenger on the inside getting out or some one with a key would have had to unlock that door.Sheri Hartman
Corrected entry: Teabing describes the Malleus Maleficarum as something which the church used (perhaps even created) as a tool to persecute women and burn them at the stake. The Malleus Maleficarum was actually banned by the church, not used by it.
Corrected entry: If it is indeed a GPS receiver used by the police to track the couple's location and movement in the interior of The Louvre, the device would not have functioned indoors as GPS needs a line of sight to the sky. The more plausible part is when Sophie later puts the device in a bar of soap and tossed it out the window onto a passing truck, then it would receive satellite signals that the police would track it moving away. I would have agreed with the indoor scene if the device was a radio beacon, but if I remember right, even the book said it was a GPS.
Corrected entry: In the Swiss bank, when Dr. Robert Langdon and Agent Sophie Neveu enter the right Fibonacci suite to get the Cryptex, the robot arm grabs the black case and REVERSES it. Then, in the next scene, when they open the lid of the case, the Cryptex's wooden case is right in its place, without any restrain or protective wrapping.
Corrected entry: When Dr. Robert Langdon and Agent Sophie Neveu arrive at Chateau Villette in the armored vehicle, the helicopter pan across the chateau shows the building lit up with accent lighting. When Dr. Robert Langdon answers the three questions correctly and Sir Leigh Teabing allows them entry, the chateau is dark and then the same accent lights turn on to welcome their entry.
Corrected entry: At one point, Sophie gets thrown to the ground and gashes up her right knee. She's shown cleaning it on the plane later. However, for most of the movie after that, she has no injury on her knee. It doesn't show up again until toward the end.
Corrected entry: In the scene where Langdon throws the cryptex into the air, Teabing throws his two walking sticks quite high stumbling to catch it. But we never hear either of the sticks hit the floor.
Corrected entry: When Leigh, Sophie, and Robert take the flight from France to England, the setting changes from late night to midday almost. Due to the time change when flying to England from France, it would be approximately the same time in England when they arrived as when they left France, not midday.
Corrected entry: I believe the cars everyone is riding in in France should be driving on the right but they appear to be driving on the left.
Corrected entry: Silas is an albino, and since albinos don't have pigment to color his skin and eyes, he should have red eyes. In the film, he has grayish blue eyes.
Corrected entry: In the scene in the Louvre, Neveu gives Langdon a paper with a "three-digit code" written on it. When he enters it into his cell phone, you can hear that he only pushes two buttons.
Corrected entry: Temple Church always has someone on duty if it's open to the public, so where was he? It's not like a normal church which people can just walk into - the Temple itself is a private enclave of London.
Corrected entry: About a minute away for the ending, there is a shot of Langdon standing in the glass floor (which is filmed from the underground bottom of the glass pyramid in the museum). You can see the reflection of the camera and cameraman in the glass pyramid, going left to right.
Corrected entry: When Robert, Leigh and Sophie first enter Temple church, in the top left hand corner you can see the black curtain they put up outside the window to keep excess light out. The window in question is actually ornately stained - it appears black in the film.
Corrected entry: When the police arrive in London, the sirens that are dubbed over are American "Howler" sirens instead of the English "Two Tone" sirens.
Corrected entry: When Langdon and Neveu enter Westminster Abbey, there is scaffolding around the right tower. Cathedrals often do this for cleaning. When they exit, there is no scaffolding around that tower, and the tower is quite clean.
Corrected entry: When Langdon finally succeeds in cracking the code to open the "cryptex", he explains to Sophie that the code-word devised by Isaac Newton could only be "apple", since it had been thanks to an apple that he had discovered that which "had annoyed the Church so much, the Law of Gravity". As far as we know, the Catholic Church had no objection to the Law of Gravity and Newton was living in a Protestant country anyway. Besides, the story about the apple was corroborated by Newton himself, that is true, but its notoriety, a typical "science fairy-tale" is rather recent. The word seems to have been chosen here because it's the only thing that most people know now about Newton (including Dan Brown, apparently).
Corrected entry: When they are arresting Teabing the policeman says the Miranda warning, which is used in the USA, not England.
Corrected entry: Near the end, Langdon is shaving and he cuts himself rather severely. A few minutes later when he leaves his hotel room and goes to the Louvre, there is absolutely no evidence of the cut - no bandage, tissue paper, etc.
Corrected entry: The scenes at the Louvre are implausible, to say the least. A man is shot inside the museum and goes about painting on the basement and leaving clues and then dies without the security staff noticing it at all. The same happens again when Langdon and Sophie, once they've become fugitives and are searched for, walk around and talk at ease, apparently without the video cameras detecting them. The Louvre Museum is probably one of the best surveilled buildings in the Europe.
