Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol

Factual error: When Tom Cruise chases the villain in a parking lot in Mumbai, the "Parking" sign is written in Kannada (the scene was shot in the Sun Network station at Bangalore). Regional signs in Mumbai are in Hindi or Marathi (the state language of Maharashtra, of which Mumbai is the capital).

Factual error: The cars in the car park scene are left hand drive (specially the ones involving the main action scenes), but the sequence is set in India, where the cars are right hand drive.

Factual error: There are no areas with palm trees, Arabic market stalls etc. anywhere near Burj Khalifa. It lies in the middle of a newly developed, very polished business area.

Factual error: In the scene where Tom Cruise enters the server room and plugs his thumb drive into the server, it is a Dell power edge 2650 which was released around 5/6/2002 and stopped shipping around 8/13/2004. The building was opened in 2009 - it's beyond belief an ultra modern building would be run using a cluster of out of date, out of warranty, underpowered computers.

Factual error: In the scene with the cars in elevators, right after Ethan jumps into a car to get the briefcase, he sees the bad guy coming down on him in the mirror, yet this is an impossible angle and there's no way he could have seen that.

Mistakes

When Ethan meets the Secretary in the car, he tells him that Hendricks was seen leaving the Kremlin with the nuclear launch device and deduces that he is Cobalt. The Secretary then gives Ethan the flash drive containing his mission, which Ethan reads on the train. Ethan then tells the rest of the team that - according to the mission - IMF believes that Hendricks is Cobalt and was seen leaving the Kremlin with the launch device - hence why he needs to buy the launch codes from Moreau. How could IMF have known about this information to put it on the drive, given that Ethan just told the Secretary in the car?

Trivia

The number A113 (which appeared in Brad Bird's previous films The Incredibles and Ratatouille) makes two appearances here. The first is on the side of Hanaway's ring in the flashback sequence, and the second is verbally as Ethan's agent ID that he recites through the phone after he escapes from the hospital.
