xXx: Return of Xander Cage

Other mistake: When Donnie Yen does his spinnarooni thing on the conference table, one of the CIA agents in the background has his gun pointed at him, but breaks his stance acting scared right when the villain stops being dangerous as he is standing up. (00:09:20)

Other mistake: When Ruby Rose is introduced, the Italian localization does not understand the reference to the game "Call of Duty", and thus just translates the expression literally. Italians play "Call of Duty", not "Dovere." (00:33:10)

Factual error: The doomsday device used by the bad guys to hack the various satellites apparently gives them also magic boosts, since normal satellites do here things they can't, such as autonomously move around changing orbit and jetting towards Earth, in seconds even. Not just that; they burn during atmospheric entry staying overall intact, including the 'wings' with the solar panels, which would be the first elements to disintegrate. (00:03:00)

Factual error: Xander Cage is not an X-Man nor a cyborg, but to mooch a football game he throws himself off a comm tower landing after a good 60 feet fall into a slope he then proceeds to ski on without the slightest scratch or problem. There are anedoctal evidence of people surviving even 10 thousand feet falls, but no matter how big of a risktaker Xander Cage is, his 'plan' is all sorts of insane and with a 99% chance of getting life-threatening injuries.

Factual error: When Xander Cage freeboots the football game, people in the bars of the neighbourhood cheer. One of those bars though is a bit odd, considering that the posters to the right of the frame bear words ("Pinctada" and "Eskrima") that don't seem to fit the Dominican Republic setting, but rather the Philippines, which is where Cage will go much later in the movie.

Factual error: In his initial 'mission', Xander Cage decides to give everyone free pay TV so the supposedly poor crowd that is chilling in the local bars can watch an important football game live. By the footage shown, the football game in question is the 2016 Summer Olympics final between Brazil and Germany. The game took place at 5:30 local (Rio) time, which would be 4:30 for Cage in Dominican Republic, surely not sunset. It also should be noted, albeit somewhat in jest, that Brazil in that match should be playing with black armbands, since their captain Neymar tragically died with Samuel Jackson right at the beginning of the movie, which is mere hours before! In fact, Neymar should have been in Brazil with his team, not with the poor man's Nick Fury. (00:15:20)

Factual error: Xander Cage at the beginning of the movie climbs the communication tower; panoramic shots show that it's broad daylight. Ten minutes pass, as the countdown of his device shows, and he is running on the marina during a golden sunset. (00:12:00 - 00:15:20)
