Now You See Me 2

Plot hole: Prior to the final show, when the horsemen are performing separately at different locations in London. [Scene X] Jack is busy with his card swap trick. While others are doing their tricks too, [Scene Y] McKinney is believed to be tricked once again by his face sharing brother at another location... Dylan gets a call and then he calls everyone to wrap up and meet somewhere. [Scene Z] Jack also wraps up and leaves the place... OK. Later after the expose in final show McKinney tells the story about how Jack successfully hypnotized his brother [in the Scene Y]. How could Jack be at two different locations at the same time? He was performing somewhere else when he did hypnotism at another location and then wraps up his trick back where he started.

Factual error: The movie shows the FBI operating in London in order to capture the Horsemen. The FBI does not have jurisdiction to operate outside the United States, although they can act with agencies in other countries.

Continuity mistake: When Dylan is leaving the prison with Thaddeus, it is night time. But later on in the movie, when the FBI director and Agent Cowan are watching the CCTV footage of Dylan and Thaddeus leaving the prison, the time on the CCTV shows them leaving the prison at 14:10, the middle of the day.

J. Daniel Atlas: We are going out with a show people will never forget.

Arthur Tressler: Hell is going to seem like a day at the spa by the time we're through with these Horsemen, wouldn't you say?
Walter Mabry: You had me at "Hell."

Walter Mabry: This is the key to every computer system on the planet. I want *you* to steal it for me.


Question: I thought that the chip they stole was fake? Why did Walter think it is real? Hypnosis?

Chosen answer: Walter thought the chip was real because he placed it under a scanner and the scanner confirmed that the chip was real. However, given the fact that later on it was revealed that the whole plane sequence was a set up, it is probable that the device used to scan the chip was actually a fake that was used to make Walter believe the chip was real, most likely throw him off guard.

New this month Answer: It is revealed later on that Allen Scott-Frank, the man from the Macau Science Center, where they stole the fake chip from, was working with The Eye. He likely anticipated their arrival due to being in contact with The Eye and planted a fake chip into the system, allowing the Horsemen to steal it. This fake chip was likely designed to trick a scanner into thinking it was real.

Question: How does Jack hypnotise Merritt's twin brother when he is suppose to be doing a street show?

Chosen answer: The entire sequence in London was all a montage. It is never really established if all of the scenes that took place there were coinciding with each other. The scene where Jack hypnotises Chase could have easily taken place after he had finished the street show.

Question: While the chip that Walter recovered from the Horsemen was presumably fake (as the Horsemen discovered earlier in the film), why then did they alert the FBI to that chip?

New this month Answer: The only ones who knew the chip was fake were the Horsemen, no one else did. Walter did not know the chip was fake. The plan was to convince Walter that the chip was real so that they could lure him out of hiding with Walter attempting to kidnap and later kill them, and expose Walter to the public in doing so. They told the crowd after exposing Walter about the chip, because while it was a fake, they still had plans with it assuming it was real. If by "alert the FBI", you were referring to when Dylan gave the FBI director the evidence on Walter and Tressler, that was not the chip he gave to her, that was a hard drive containing all of Walter and Tressler's past dealings.
