Factual error: At the beginning of the game, Major Zero mentions that the HALO jump that Naked Snake is about to undergo is "the worlds first HALO jump". The first HALO jump actually happened in August 1960, four years before the game is set.

Factual error: In the opening scenes of the movie, set in 1961, the Very Large Array in New Mexico is shown. The Very Large Array did not exist in 1961, only being approved as a project by Congress in 1972, and being completed in 1980.

Factual error: After the briefing at the Pentagon, a Blackhawk is shown flying over forests and mountains to Andrews Air Force Base. Andrews AFB is directly outside of Washington, DC and an air route from the Pentagon does not pass over any mountains of any kind.

Get Smart (2008)

Factual error: In the beginning of the film, Max is walking down the National Mall listening to his iPod. He walks toward the Smithsonian Building (the supposed location of CONTROL's headquarters). However, in the next shot, he is entering the National Museum of Natural History, which is on the other side of the Mall and is further down. Also, exhibitions of CONTROL's history are seen in the museum. The Museum of Natural History exhibits prehistoric and natural objects. The exhibition on CONTROL should actually belong in the Museum of American History.

Get Smart (2008)

Factual error: During CONTROL's paintball training session, a barrel view of a bullet exiting the gun is shown as it travels to its target. However, the entire bullet is shown, casing and all, instead of just the bullet.

Dom

Plot hole: When the survivors arrive in Las Vegas, all that is visible is the Strip. No other buildings are seen, even though Las Vegas has other high-rise buildings that are not on the Strip, and the level of sand that has built up is not substantial enough to have buried the entire city.

Underworld (2003)

Continuity mistake: At the shooting range, Selene is shown firing a black USP without a compensator. It then cuts to an over the shoulder shot, and she is now firing a two-tone USP Match (which she supposedly receives from Kahn to test out a few seconds later). It then cuts to a frontal shot of her, and she is once again using the same black USP. She never stopped firing, so she couldn't have switched guns.

Dom

Continuity mistake: When the hacker pulls up the F-35s schematic, it is shown with 10 missiles outline in red, 3 on each wing, and 4 internally. When the F-35 is shown on screen, it has no weapons mounted on the wings.

Dom

Factual error: When the alien ship arrives in Washington DC, its shadow goes over the Lincoln Memorial from the bottom of the Lincoln statue to the top. Since the saucer is heading over the National Mall and the Lincoln Memorial faces the Mall, the shadow should have gone from the top to the bottom.

Dom

Factual error: The cavemen Harrier pilots are shown using the hover mode frequently. Harriers, even with drop tanks as depicted in the film, can hover for at most 5-10 minutes, as the thrust required to keep the aircraft in the air without any lift consumes massive amounts of fuel and overheats the engine, and real-life Harrier pilots are instructed never to hover for long periods of time, unless absolutely necessary. The amount of time the cavemen spent hovering (hiding out of sight in a parking garage, sneaking up on the Psychlo gunships, etc.) would have easily caused their fuel to run dry.

Godzilla (1998)

Factual error: The Apaches in the film are depicted with dual machine guns on each side of the cockpit, mounted directly on the windows. In real life, Apaches cannot mount such cannons, and instead use an M230 Chaingun in a turret underneath the helicopter, which the film Apaches have, but for some reason do not use.

Dom

Continuity mistake: At the end of the film, Nicolas Cage assaults the enemy compound with two Glock 17s. When he exits the compound and shoots at the boss's car, which is pulling away, in one shot he is firing a SIG P226, but in a later shot is using a Glock again.

Godzilla (1998)

Factual error: When the F-18s are inbound to Madison Square Garden, the lead pilot arms a pair of AGM-84 harpoons, but he says he is arming LGBs, which stand for Laser-Guided Bombs. Harpoons are not laser-guided, they are radar-guided sea-skimming anti-ship missiles, which make them impractical for destroying a building.

Godzilla (1998)

Factual error: When Godzilla first attacks New York and then disappears, we are shown the MetLife Building, which has a massive gaping hole in it. The immense structural stress of a gigantic lizard smashing through the building, not to mention most of the center supports being taken with it, should have collapsed the building, yet it still is standing.

Iron Man (2008)

Trivia: The cars in Stark's garage are from left to right: a grey/black 2010 Audi R8, a blue/white AC Shelby Cobra, an orange Saleen S7 and a grey Tesla Roadster. Next to the Tesla are two motorcycles custom made by Zero Engineering.

Dom

Factual error: During the revolt, Carlo (Kim Coates) is attacked by several Psychlo gunships on the dome's roof. He then uses a Carl Gustav recoilless rifle to destroy one of them. Strangely, the missile he fires is heat seeking, evidenced by it missing the target and arcing back around to strike the gunship from behind. Carl Gustavs are not designed to fire heat seeking missiles, as they lack the tracking systems necessary to do so, since the weapon is an anti-tank rifle in real life.

Dom

Plot hole: When the survivors break into the Umbrella compound, Alice helps load survivors onto the helicopter. The helicopter portrayed has a max occupancy of 6, and somehow Alice manages to squeeze 20+ survivors onto the helicopter, with no problems whatsoever.

Dom

Factual error: The main character and several others take a Psychlo ship and head for Washington, DC, where they land in front of a building with a dome, with "Library of Congress" spelled out above the building's entrance. The Library of Congress does not have a dome like the one depicted, in real life. The building they landed near is actually the Capitol Building, evidenced by the building's design and the distinctive dome shape. The Library of Congress is housed in three buildings, none of which match the depiction in the film. Humanity has been enslaved since the year 2000, so they would hardly have been in a position to move or remodel a library.

Dom

Plot hole: Jet fuel takes about 20 years to degrade if it is left in a fuel tank. The AV-8 Harriers left in Ft. Hood for 1000 years should not be able to fly, because they have no fuel in their tanks. It has all evaporated by then.
