The A-Team

Factual error: They are present at Frankfurt, Germany. But with a closer look you see a cathedral at the right side. This cathedral and the central station are located in Cologne, Germany - they are about 220 km apart. (01:04:15)


Factual error: When the team's supposedly in Frankfurt, Germany, you can see yellow cabs. Cabs in Germany are always colored sort of dirty white/beige.

Factual error: The German police cars show the number "109" as the emergency telephone code, but the German code to call the police is "110" and "112" for the fire brigade / rescue.

Factual error: There is no desert between Frankfurt and the 44 miles distant city of Mannheim.

Factual error: During the Frankfurt scenes, a lot of cars have a license plate starting with "FF"; eg. FF - AB 1234. FF stands for the eastern German "Frankfurt/Oder" (Frankfurt at the Oder River) and NOT for the west German Frankfurt/Main (Frankfurt at the Main River) where the financial district and the large airport is. There is a distance of 470 kilometers (292 miles) between those cities.

Factual error: In the movie, the United States Embassy is in Frankfurt. The embassy is actually in Berlin - any foreign dependency in cities other than a nation's capital is a consulate.

Factual error: The action with the C-130 in the air is supposed to be near Mannheim, Germany but there is nowhere near a landscape with forests and lakes like shown after their "landing" in the tank and during/after the AC-130 attack. Certainly not with large shipping vessels as depicted (guess this is somewhere around Vancouver, BC).

Factual error: The A-Team's highjacked C-130 is said to have been shot down near Mannheim in Baden-W├╝rttemberg County, Germany. Yet, the agents later claim that Murdock drove the tank out of the Wolgastsee, asking a local woman for the way to Berlin. The Wolgastsee is on the island of Usedom in Mecklenburg-Vorpommern County - some 400 to 450 miles away from Mannheim.

Factual error: When they are getting the passports checked they are supposed to be in Germany. The police uniforms are Norwegian and all the signposts are in Norwegian. (01:28:30)

Factual error: The Swiss license plate on the Mercedes is wrong, it says "ZH 8Q25." The only letters on Swiss license plates however are the two first ones indicating the canton. The real version of this plate would be "ZH 8025"


Factual error: The sign in the hospital reads "Hospital San Vicente de Paulo para todos veteranos de Guerra". The correct spelling is "San Vicente de Paul" and "todos los veteranos".

Factual error: After the A-Team lured General Tuco into American airspace, his heli is shot down by a F-22 with a pair of missiles. However, the F-22's bay doors where the weapons are stored for stealth reasons aren't open during launch.
