Continuity mistake: The tyres on the crotch rocket motorcycles they were riding kept changing from knobbly tyres to road slicks, back and forth depending on what terrain they were on. Easiest to see when Ethan skids on the road to avoid the white van - clear shot of slick tyres - then about 30 seconds later they're on the dirt, he skids into the old car and you can easily see that he's got off-road tyres front and back.

Continuity mistake: In the car chase scene with Nyah after they split and hit again and are spinning look at Ethan's car. The driver's side in the close ups was on the American side, then in the spin it is reversed to an English side. (It is a negative image - the license plate is reversed). The next image is back to normal.

Factual error: In the scene at the race track where they show the virus infecting and destroying cells in the blood stream, they clearly show that it is red blood cells being infected. Viruses, in order to replicate, require the cell's DNA replication machinery. However, mature red blood cells in the circulation no longer possess this machinery since they no longer have a nucleus or DNA. It would therefore be impossible for this virus to replicate.

Trivia: When Nyah is trying to convince Ethan to shoot her, she says "Do it. Now!" There is still about forty minutes left in the movie, but those are the last words she says.

Trivia: In the movie trailer Tom Cruise greets Ving Rhames when he lands in a helicopter on a remote property in Australia. He says "Welcome to Australia, mate" with an attempted Aussie accent on the word "mate". But that line was never shown in the movie. Not sure why. Perhaps the producers thought that it may come across as Tom mocking Australians?

Trivia: In the part where Tom Cruise and the girl are arguing, Cruise says 'Then feel better.' Then there is a 3-5 second silence. If you turn the volume up, you can hear sound effects from Roller Coaster Tycoon, a computer game - what sounds like kids playing and screaming on a roller coaster.

Question: What style of black leather jacket does Ethan Hunt wear just before the chase scene near the end of the movie, I've been looking for ages trying to find something similar?

Chosen answer: The costume designer was Lizzy Gardiner, who can be contacted through Sandra Marsh Management (smarshmgmt@earthlink.net). The IMDb is the best place for questions like this.

Question: What is supposed to be in those biohazard tanks that makes them explode so violently when shot. Considering what is stored inside them that seems like a stupid way of storing dangerous things.

Chosen answer: The contents are either some sort of flammable material (i.e. magnesium hydride) or some sort of material that would ignite a flammable material upon contact (i.e. hydrogen peroxide) that would easily explode violently when ignited (i.e. with a bullet.) The containers are actually decent as they can withstand falls, but they are definitely not bulletproof. After all, one doesn't expect someone to come into a laboratory and shoot chemical storage containers.

Question: Throughout the film, Hugh Stamp's accent keeps changing, where exactly is he supposed to be from?

Chosen answer: South Africa, although the actor is Australian.
