The Hurricane Heist picture

Factual error: The repairman was freeing the soldiers from inside the locked gate using bolt cutters. The terrorist noticed this on the video feed so they electrified the fence, shocking the repairman. This would not have happened because the bolt cutters have plastic handles just for that reason, to keep you from being electrocuted by mistake. (00:54:50)

Mile 22 picture

Character mistake: During the opening raid of the FSB safe house, an operator is seen taking hard drives out of a safe. As he does, he states over the radio that they are "SSDs" (Solid State Drives), when in reality they are normal HDDs (Hard Disk Drives), which are noticeably larger than SSDs. (00:07:25)

Reprisal picture

Revealing mistake: During the police chase with Gabriel on his motorcycle, he stops and turns to start shooting at one of the cops. By appearances, Gabriel is using a standard Glock which had a magazine capacity of 15 rounds. He has no extensions on it at all with the handle and magazine visible. Yet he proceeds to fire the gun 33-35 times at the cop car without reloading and in continuous fire. (00:57:55)

Red Sparrow picture

Factual error: When Dominica is tasked with swapping Intelligence using a laptop in the hotel, she is using floppy discs which is highly unlikely in the realm of international espionage. Not only do they not hold enough info at only 1.44MB each, but laptops have not had floppy drives for quite some years and this movie is supposed to take place in 2017.

Searching picture

Other mistake: When the detective sends the traffic cam footage, a Gmail alert pops up. However, the dad is currently using Margot's computer, not his. He previously logged into Margot's gmail account on this computer so any alerts received would be Margot's mail, not his.

Maze Runner: The Death Cure picture

Continuity mistake: When Newt is straddling Thomas with a knife pointed down at his upper left chest, it's very obvious that the knife goes into his chest, through Thomas' shirt. A few minutes later, when Thomas is kneeling over Newt, after Newt stabs himself in the chest, the stab hole in Thomas' shirt is no longer there and he isn't bleeding. (01:50:45)

Black Water picture

Plot hole: Kingsley holds the only key card that can access the control room where the Captain is. He only has one card. He gives this key card to Rhodes so he can go up there and talk the Captain into not taking the sub to the surface yet, while Kingsley and his men head down to stop Scott and Taylor. When they employ the help of Marco and take out Kingsley and his men, Marco bends down and pulls the key card off Kingsley's neck so that now they have it... only Kingsley didn't have the key any more, as Rhodes had it and was still in the control room. A second key card magically materialized on Kingsley's neck.

Suggested correction: It doesn't happen on screen. We don't see how she even kills them. It's not shown how she got their bodies up there and she could have accomplished this by any number of means.

Escape Plan 2: Hades picture

Continuity mistake: When Stallone kills the bad guys with skull masks in the corridor of the bar, his motions pointing the pistol don't match the positions of the lemming-like goons he hits. For instance he has the gun all the way to his right for the first one he kills, but the guy is shown with a hole opening in his forehead while he's in the middle of the corridor. (00:29:00)

Insidious: The Last Key picture

Other mistake: At the end of the movie Lorraine has to remind Elise that she helped her once, implying they haven't seen, or spoken since. When Elise first meets Josh in the 1st insidious she tells Josh that her and Lorraine have been friends for a long time, implying they talk or see each other regularly.

Continuity mistake: Right at the start after they dock with the escape pod, three people enter and Kanelo calls out for Franklin.
