Mission: Impossible 2

Continuity mistake: At the rock climbing sequence, after he slips and is hanging by one hand starts staring at the landscape, in the wide shots, the sun is directly behind him, but in the closeup shots, he is in the shadow. (00:07:45)

Factual error: During the motorcycle chase gasoline spills from the bullet hole on the motorcycle. Every mechanic knows that gas doesn't have drops like those, it spreads out in a thin film. Also the wind would blow it away.

Continuity mistake: During the motorcycle scene near the end of the movie there is a shot of Cruise from the front. You can clearly see an earring on his left ear. A second later it's gone.

Ethan Hunt: You turned around.
Nyah Nordoff-Hall: What are you going to do? Spank me?

Question: When Ambrose noticed the envelope was in the wrong pocket, and was thus tipped off that Nyah was a spy, how did he jump to the conclusion that Ethan was her contact? Did he play a mere hunch when he impersonated Ethan in front of her?

Answer: Ethan was the most probable candidate. Remember that Ambrose and Ethan had specifically worked together a few times with IMF in the past, as stated in the film, with them body doubling each other. Once Ambrose had his suspicious raised by the envelope, he decided to test Nyah. So showing up to her with Ethan's face would indicate if she recognized Ethan, or thought she was being approached by a total stranger at night.

Answer: Ambrose has stolen Chimera, a virus developed by Dr. Nekhorvich. Dr. Nekhorvich was an associate of Hunt, and trusted him. This is why Ambrose had to pose as Hunt to extract him at the beginning. Given that Ambrose was posing as hunt on the mission he went rogue, it is logical that Hunt would be the one sent to take him down.
