The Equalizer

Factual error: In the big battle scene at the Home Mart store after Robert turns the power off to the building, you see Robert grabbing welding canisters. When Robert has Ralphie turn the power back on, it cuts to one of the bad guys in the break-room, and a digital microwave starts counting down. A digital microwave could not have any memory of any prior cook settings, let alone any way to set it, since the power was already out.



Factual error: In the diner scene, after killing the gunman, Robert shoves a single knife into an electric outlet, shorting out all the lights. To short out any circuit you must cross metal between both positive and negative wires. Also, the lights wouldn't be on the same circuit as the outlets. He wouldn't short out the entire store.

Revealing mistake: When David Harbour is going to search his place, you see him check his weapon. The picture shows the rounds but all the primers have indentations, showing they've already been fired.
