Pacific Rim

Other mistake: In the scene from Mako's memory, the terrified little girl stops crying and smiles when Pentecost emerges from the Jaeger's head/cockpit. But if the Jaegers are 250 feet tall, how could she possibly have seen him? It's not kneeling when she looks up at him.

Other mistake: Near the end of the movie, Mako swims to the unconscious Raleigh's survival, blows the top shield of his survival pod, removes his helmet and checks for a carotid pulse...while wearing gloves. No wonder she thought he was dead.

Other mistake: Right after Otachi sprays acid, Gipsy reaches in its mouth to pull its tongue out, but doesn't get affected by any.

Other mistake: During the triple event, different war clocks times are different. One that is stopped and the one that wasn't reset.

Other mistake: When Crimson Typhoon's head is pulled off, their location should not be visible on the radar behind Stacker.

Factual error: During the Hong Kong battle, one of the Kaiju disables the Australian Jaeger and the base by emitting an EMP blast. Becket claimed that the Gipsy Danger was immune because it had a nuclear core and was therefore "analog". Being nuclear powered has no bearing on whether a machine is analog or not, and the EMP would certainly affect all the electronic circuitry needed to control the Gipsy.

Stacker Pentecost: Today at the edge of our hope, at the end of our time. We have chosen to believe in each other. Today we face the monsters that are at our door, today we are cancelling the apocalypse!

More trivia for Pacific Rim

Question: Is it ever established why the Kaiju attack cities? Why they perceive a challenge, a threat, a resource worth taking there specifically? If they are a decent biochemical match to Earth life, and are hungry, why don't they attack schools of fish, or fishing/whaling vessels, if nothing else, they should attack the cannery row? If they are after a non-living resource, like minerals, why don't they root through the seabed or attack mines?

Chosen answer: Because they are scouts for an invasion of Earth from another dimension. They are testing our response to their arrival and military capabilities and the best way to attract military attention is to attack population centers.
