Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest

Picture added & edited by Super Grover

Plot hole: There are six metal bars mounted around the circumference of the water wheel's axle. In the wheel's interior, when Jack frees himself he lands on his feet, begins to run and promptly hits his head on one of those axle bars, then falls out. Moments later, when Jack returns and runs in the wheel, he is shorter (way more than a foot) than all six spinning axle bars, which would make that previous shot impossible, however humorous it is. (01:52:40 - 01:53:55)

Suggested correction: It is extremely old and rotting wood. There is all the chance that there was one bar far lower than the others. Jack smacking into it at a good pace might have been enough to knock that bar loose and then have it falls off as the wheel rolled. Leaving Jack free to run under all the rest.

Nothing in the shot shows one bar significantly lower.
