Suggested correction: While the Hummer H1 began production in 1992, that was just the civilian model of the HMMVV (Humvee) which began production in 1984 by AM General. What is in the film isn't an H1. And if anyone tries to sell you a 1989 Hummer H1, they don't know what they're talking about or are lying.

Suggested correction: Hummer H1s were made in 1989 and can still be bought in Deutschland https://www.ooyyo.com/Germany/used-hummer-for-sale/c=CDA31D7114D3854F111BFE6FBA33355D09A512B411C4874111/.

Vehicles being labelled as such on a random website doesn't make it true. The Hummer H1 only started production in 1992. As such it's impossible for a 1989 model to exist.

Factual error: James Faulkner is wearing Tom Ford glasses (James McAvoy too) - Tom Ford as a brand wasn't created until 2006.

Factual error: Berlin never had blue subway trains, east or west.

Factual error: The trench coat worn by David Percival has the collar tabs on the collar. East German trench coats never had collar tabs, only regular uniform jackets.

Factual error: I just don't buy the idea that you can fit an adult male corpse into the front luggage compartment of a Porsche 911. Especially if rigor mortis has set in.

Suggested correction: You not believing something is not an error. Do you have any facts and figures to back up your statement? Have you actually checked the capacity of the front compartment?
