London Has Fallen picture

Plot hole: After an assault on the scale that's been witnessed, covering a wide area of London by extremely well prepared attackers, there's no way Marine 1 would fly to the airport at low altitude within easy range of missiles, and then when attacked, double back over the areas that have already been attacked where hostiles would still be present.

Criminal picture

Factual error: Jan Strook is a Dutchman; throughout the movie he is referred to as "Jan Strook", which rhymes with "took," when it should rhyme with "broke." This is even worse considering he has a Dutch accent in the movie, which leaves him no excuse for mispronouncing his own name.

The Accountant picture

Factual error: When researching Christian Wolf in the IRS database, they state he made $75,000 and ran ZZZ Accounting. They then look up 3 other businesses with over a million dollars in income, said they were all partnerships and stated that Christian Wolf was managing partner. Given that partnerships are flow through entities for income tax purposes, all that income would flow through to individual returns, resulting in much more than $75,000 in income on Christian Wolf's tax return.
