Now You See Me 2

Factual error: When it's 00:00 on January 1st, it's not night in Sydney, it's 11 AM. When they 'reveal' stuff at the end of the movie, and they show that things happen exactly at 00:00 in the night in London, it can't possibly be dark in Sydney, Australia.

Factual error: The movie shows the FBI operating in London in order to capture the Horsemen. The FBI does not have jurisdiction to operate outside the United States, although they can act with agencies in other countries.

Factual error: When Lula is performing her dove tricks in London she's standing by Cutty Sark, a historical ship museum in Greenwich. Greenwich is south of Thames river. When Walter and his company are showing the positions of the Horsemen on the map of London all of them are shown north of the Thames.

Milan Korenica

Factual error: After his show Atlas reveals he did his rain trick using rain machines and strobe lights. While this is technically correct it only makes the rain appear to stop, not prevent it from falling. But during his show when the rain is "stopped" we see no splashes on the ground or on people who put down their umbrellas.

Question: I thought that the chip they stole was fake? Why did Walter think it is real? Hypnosis?

Answer: Walter thought the chip was real because he placed it under a scanner and the scanner confirmed that the chip was real. However, given the fact that later on it was revealed that the whole plane sequence was a set up, it is probable that the device used to scan the chip was actually a fake that was used to make Walter believe the chip was real, most likely throw him off guard.

Casual Person

Answer: It is revealed later on that Allen Scott-Frank, the man from the Macau Science Center, where they stole the fake chip from, was working with The Eye. He likely anticipated their arrival due to being in contact with The Eye and planted a fake chip into the system, allowing the Horsemen to steal it. This fake chip was likely designed to trick a scanner into thinking it was real.

Casual Person

They stole the real chip but lost it. That's how they were able to recognize the one they currently had was fake.
