Continuity mistake: Elisabeth Shue is talking to Homelander by her car. As she gets her baby out of the car, she says "can we please just talk later" and has a muslin hanging over her right shoulder, turns around, and from the reverse angle the muslin is bundled up in front of her, not over her shoulder at all. Then the angle changes again and it's back where it was before.Jon Sandys
Other mistake: The whole point of the "ass bomb" is that Translucent's skin is impenetrable, no way into his body except, as they realise, through his ass. So when the bomb goes off, the blast should be entirely contained within his impenetrable skin, leaving a flesh-bag of destroyed internal organs. Instead he explodes into mush. They even say afterwards his skin won't burn off so they've got to dispose of it somehow.Jon Sandys
Trivia: Simon Pegg's extended cameo as Hughie's father is a specific nod to the comics - the look of "Wee Hughie" in the original comics was based on Simon Pegg. Artist Darick Robertson said "it was important to capture an innocence but tough determination in Hughie. Two things that seemed to contradict each other and somehow in early sketches he kept looking too old. When I saw Simon Pegg in Spaced I thought he captured that balance perfectly." Pegg knew he was too old to play the character himself, but was happy to play his father.Jon Sandys
