The Adventures of Tintin: The Secret of the Unicorn picture

Factual error: Tintin says they only have one bullet left. That bullet is in the magazine,and since it is a semi automatic, there should also be one in the chamber, meaning they would have two bullets. Even if they only had that paticular bullet, he doesn't cock the gun, meaning the chamber would be empty and therefore wouldn't fire.

Rio picture

Factual error: Towards the end when the smugglers are trying to takeoff from the airport with the float coming at them, Marcel (the lead smuggler) tells Tipa (the fat smuggler) to pull up because they're about to hit the float. Tipa quickly pulls back on the flight controls to takeoff. The scene switches to an outside shot of the plane's wing where the "flap" moves to the down position, but pulling back on the controls manipulates the "elevator" (on the tail) which would cause it to pivot upward. The flaps are controlled separately. (01:20:40)
