Unbroken (2014)

Other mistake: When the airmen are in the life rafts for 45 days, how are 2 of them virtually clean shaven?

Question: When the squad comes across the radar site and there's a big discussion about whether to attack it or not, why doesn't Jackson just kill them with his sniper rifle? He claims to be a "fine instrument of warfare", so why not give him the opportunity to test that theory?

Pie Man

Answer: On paper, that does sound like a good strategy. However, there is the human element to factor in. The moment one German soldier fell and the others heard the shot, they would have taken cover to get out of Jackson's line of fire. This would allow them to be ready and take away the U.S. squad's small element of surprise that they had achieved.

Continuity mistake: When the Privates are having their furloughs authorised, Colonel Sangston walks in with Corporal Cannon. Only those two men walk in. Corporal Cannon moves from the doorway to give Desmond Doss his rifle leaving no-one by the doorway. After Desmond refuses to touch the rifle, the Colonel shouts at Desmond. Out of nowhere Captain Glover mysteriously appears in the doorway. (00:48:40 - 00:50:10)

Continuity mistake: When Tom the Minion dressed as a maid is hoovering, he answers the front door by opening it towards him as does the minion who looks out of the door after Tom has been taken. In the scene with Gru sat on the steps in the rain, sad that Lucy is off to Australia, Agnes comes out with an umbrella, but now the door opens outwards.
