Mission: Impossible 2

Continuity mistake: During the end bike chase scene, Ethan Hunt has just used his mirror to fire his Beretta at Sean Ambrose, he then re-holsters the weapon and swerves round two cars. If you play the movie slowly you can see that after he re-holsters the gun it is still in his left hand while he is holding onto the handlebars. It's a quick shot so you have to look carefully.

Continuity mistake: When Sean removes his Ethan mask on the 747 his eyes change from Ethan's clear blue to his own dark. But there is no eye cover or contact lenses incorporated in the mask. (00:04:40)

Jacob La Cour

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)

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.

Sean Ambrose: You know women, mate. Like monkeys, they are - won't let go of one branch until they've got hold of the next.

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.
