Kingsman: The Secret Service

Factual error: When the barracks are completely flooded, several of the trainees shove shower hoses down the toilets for an "unlimited supply of air" (as Merlin explains moments later, describing it as "simple physics"). However, that old fireman's trick is a technique for surviving dense smoke, which is not under tons of pressure. In the barracks flooded 9 feet deep with water, the pressure would be so enormous that it would easily gush straight down the toilets in a powerful torrent, eliminating any "unlimited air supply."

Factual error: When the barracks are completely flooded, Eggsy punches through a large two-way mirror to escape. The fact is that any glass (or plexiglas) thick enough to withstand many tons of water pressure without bursting would be as impenetrable as concrete to Eggsy's bare fist. He would need a chisel-tipped jackhammer to penetrate such a mirror.

Suggested correction: However, the room is designed as a test with solutions, one of which is breaking that glass. Hence the glass is not designed to safely hold the water, it's designed to barely be able to hold it and be breakable by the recruits.

No, you don't defy physics by making a containment barrier just strong enough to contain many tons of water but weak enough to be penetrated by a human fist.

Continuity mistake: In the scene when Galahad is taking Eggsy below ground at the Kingsman Tailor Shop, they enter the dressing room and the door is open with it still open in the mirror in the next shot. Then when they go below ground it is magically closed.

Trivia: Eggsy needs the code for the prison door that holds Princess Tilde. The code given is "2625." This spells out the word "anal" on a telephone keypad.
