Captain Phillips

Factual error: In the scene where the Navy Seals are riding in the cars, the VA state vehicle inspection can be read from behind. It read "6 13" for June 2013. This would have been correct for the period the film was made, but not for the time of the incident.

Continuity mistake: In the lifeboat on the way to the mainland, Capt Phillips sometimes is clean-shaven and sometimes has stubble.

Captain Phillips mistake picture

Continuity mistake: In the scene when Captain Phillips is telling members of the Navy that he is in Seat 15, a Naval officer writes the words "Seat 15" below "Captain Phillips" on the board. A scene or two later, the words "Seat 15" are to the right of "CAPT PHILLIPS." Also, "Captain Phillips" is now "CAPT PHILLIPS."

Question: How did the pirates trick the crew into thinking they would keep their promise when they make a deal to release Phillips in exchange for giving them their leader back?

Answer: They didn't exactly "trick" the crew, they just never intended to follow through on their promise. The crew has nothing to threaten the pirates with, the pirates have all the guns.

New this month Question: Is it really possible to shoot a door open like the pirates do in the movie when they reach the bridge?

New this week Answer: Probably not. The Mythbusters tested the myth of shooting open a locked door, and in most cases, it took immense and multiple fire power to blow open a lock.
