Kingsman: The Secret Service

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.

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."

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: There is an additional scene about two minutes into the end credits.

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.

New this month Question: Harry told Dean he had enough information on him to have him locked up for life. What information was this?

raph

New this month Answer: Details aren't given, but it seems that Dean is involved in local crime along with the gang that hangs around with him. Even if Harry is bluffing, and doesn't have specific proof, it is clear that he is abusive and he has the recording of him threatening Eggsy.

New this month Answer: CCTV surveillance and such like. And a possible kingsman informant embedded in the gang leaking incriminating info. Or police informer who reports to kingsman. Or, y'know, he was lying.
