A.P.E.X. (1994)

3 plot holes - chronological order

(0 votes)

Plot hole: When the first sterilisation unit encounters Nicholas in the desert, he commands it to 'cease operation' and it becomes harmless. There was no reason why he couldn't have used the same command later on in the movie when he encountered deadly robots, particularly when one was teleported to the lab. (00:16:40)


Plot hole: When the team are trapped in the lab corridor, Nicholas uses the code 90258 to stop the countdown. Trouble is, in that timeline Nicholas was a tech soldier, not a scientist so the code would have been set by someone else, and not by him. His code should never have worked. (00:58:40)


Plot hole: When Nicholas crosses the timeline into the other 'futuristic' world he becomes Nicholas the tech soldier. Yet when he crosses back into the first timeline (where he's a scientist) he does not adopt the scientist's body. (01:33:40)


Continuity mistake: When Natasha is shot by the robot, the shot travels right through her, like a normal bullet would. Yet in every other scene when the robots use their pulse cannons, including when Rasheed dies, the shot always causes an explosion. With Natasha, no explosion was seen or heard. (01:21:30)
