Red 2 picture

Revealing mistake: When Han shoots at Bruce Willis and the others with the Gatling gun, we see cartridges on the ground. You can tell that they are all blanks. The tip is jagged and has been closed - live ammo just has an open hole where the bullet was.

Suggested correction: In the close up it shows when it does a close up of his face you can see that the string is tied where the peg would be.

The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones picture

Revealing mistake: Early on, after Clary blasts the demon with a homemade explosion that blows a huge fireball across the kitchen and blasts out the window, there is no sign of anything being burned, not even the curtains. The kitchen is only in a slight shambles and there are small fires burning in isolated areas that never spread or char anything.

World War Z pictureWorld War Z mistake picture

Revealing mistake: When the family's car is about to be hit by the ambulance as they try to escape downtown, Gerry is driving and his wife is up, leaning over the passenger seat talking to their daughter. The camera angle changes to a view from behind, and as the ambulance is about to hit, we can see there is nobody in the car and the ambulance driver is wearing a safety helmet. This is viewable in just a few frames. (00:08:00)

Fast & Furious 6 picture

Revealing mistake: The truck Roman and Tej are suspended in during the runway scene has no prop shaft attached (without it, the truck won't be able to drive at all). When you look at the bottom of the truck while it's in the air, you can see where the shaft was supposed to be attached to the rear differential.

A Good Day to Die Hard picture

Revealing mistake: In the opening chase with the armoured truck it comes up behind a blue car that is already dented on the near side, which is the side it slides round to so the truck hits it. It then gets pushed onto a silver van that is completely wrecked from previous takes.

Iron Man 3 picture

Revealing mistake: One of the Air Force One survivors is shown floating awkwardly on his stomach with his legs in the air. This was due to the floatation device used by the actor, because no unaided human would be able to be so buoyant in a pose like that. (01:37:00)

Oblivion picture

Revealing mistake: When Jack says "Screw you" to Sergeant Sykes, Sykes pulls his pistol and shoots Jack. You see the gun flash, and you see an impact on Jack. But if you watch closely, they do not line up. The special effects charge goes off indicating the hit on Jack's right breast. But when the gun goes off, while still moving, at that moment it was pointing at Jack's lower left abdominal region. (00:58:50)

White House Down picture

Revealing mistake: After the explosion - I think the first one - the terrorists are going around killing the security men and taking their weapons - with one security man down and his gun on the floor, there is a yellow marker under his gun, we see the marker when the gun is taken. Maybe the yellow marker is there as a position marker, so the actor knows where to put his gun after he has been "killed" and fallen down.

Suggested correction: The 'marker' actually looks like it is a metal plate with screws attached to the floor itself. So I don't think it is a marker at all.

Superman: Unbound picture

Revealing mistake: Just after Superman and Supergirl have their talk about him going after Brainiac, it cuts to Lois at the Daily Planet on her laptop. There is a close up and you can see her fingers on the keyboard. She is typing really fast, but the animation shows her fingers just hitting the same 3 or 4 keys over and over again. (00:20:05)

The Lone Ranger picture

Revealing mistake: In each one of his scenes, every time you see Captain Fuller you can see that the actor is wearing contacts to make his eyes blue. It's obvious contacts with the brown rings of his natural eyes around them. And contacts were not invented for a long long time after this movie takes place.

Lone Survivor picture

Revealing mistake: When Mark Wahlberg removes the shrapnel from his leg, it is pretty obvious that it is a fake leg. If you look at and compare its dimensions to the rest of his body, you can see that that would be the leg of a giant man. The thigh is way too long, and the whole leg is way too big for his body. You can also tell by his body posture that his real leg goes into the couch he is sitting on.
