Factual error: The Skycrane helicopters have a max takeoff weight of 42,000 lbs. With them weighing in at 19,200 lbs, that leaves 22,800 lbs that they could lift. Even small carracks, the ships, weigh around 180,0000 lbs.

Revealing mistake: During the scene with the ships hanging from the helicopters, Nate decides to fire a cannonball at the other helicopter as it's coming towards them. A standard cannonball shot from a 36 pound cannon that the Spanish used on their ships weighs 16.5 kilograms (the weight of a large full water dispenser bottle) but Nate tosses it around like it weighs nothing.

Factual error: When they were in the underground chamber and it was filling up with water. Nate is still talking to Sully through his phone app, despite his phone being in his pocket which would make the call so muffled as to be inaudible.

Deliberate mistake: The baddies somehow manage to place the net under the two humongous ships by simply digging with their shovels in a matter of minutes, when they would need a bulldozer and several hours instead.

Factual error: The chambers underneath Barcelona begin flooding when the group activates the mechanism, threatening to drown Nate and Chloe. Two problems here: 1) the chamber that they are in is not watertight, they just closed a flimsy stone door that would leak or burst open and free them; and 2) since these chambers have vents leading to the sewer grates outside (which Sully yells through to communicate), why aren't they already flooded from 4 centuries of rainwater and sewage?

Suggested correction: Water tight does not mean it can't flood. As long as water is going in faster than it is going out, the level will rise. That also explains why it isn't perpetually flooded from rain over the years. If it isn't water tight, it will slowly drain.

Continuity mistake: When Chloe, Nate, and Sully rest and talk about wine, Sully holds the glass differently between shots. One shot it's by the stem another by the foot/base.


Deliberate mistake: The whole airplane scene with the heavy cargo flying away and hitting the heroes without harming them plus them jumping and standing on the flying cargo defies the laws of gravity, physics and common sense.

Factual error: Chloe and Nathan use a GPS tracker in their phone while Sully is above them searching for key holes. They're both able to stay together due to this. The problem is Chloe and Nate are underground. GPS uses satellites and they wouldn't work underground.

Plot hole: Sam sent a post card from the church where the keys are used. But Sam was captured moments after locating the book that gives the clue about the church, and would never have had a chance to go there.

Other mistake: Sully climbs up the helicopter chain in the final scene with a bag full of gold. Assuming modest dimensions of 30x30x30 cm for his backpack, that means that he was carrying at least 40 kilograms of gold on his back, but he tosses it around like it's full of fluff. And when he hits Braddock in the face with it later, he's tossing 40 kilos of gold at high velocity at her face, but she shows up later without a scratch.

Other mistake: In the cave, the Baddies were able to steer their boat directly to the ship, while Tom Holland had to dive deep into the water, swim some distance then back up to get to it.

Suggested correction: Before Baddock and co. enter the cave, you hear an explosion, and it is evident in the movie that they blew up the cave's wall to get in with the boat.


You can even see the smoke and debris falling as they pilot the boat through the new hole they just made.

Continuity mistake: When Nathan gets out of the trunk of the red car in the cargo plane he is not wearing his ring necklace for a couple of scenes. Then it appears.

Continuity mistake: When Sam leaves Nate at the orphanage, there's an orange lamp to the right side of the window emitting light on Sam's face. As it's on the right of Sam, the right side of his face should be lit orange; however, in the cut to the close-up, the orange light is on the left of Sam's face. This is likely due to the editor flipping the shot in post.

Continuity mistake: When Nathan prepares the Negroni the mixing glass is either parallel to the napkin or to the left of it. This changes back and forth.

Continuity mistake: When Nathan arrives late to work he extends his right arm to take his jacket off and then lowers it. From the opposite angle his arm is extended, and he lowers it again.

Factual error: Nate and the other chick find four amphoras full of salt inside an ancient Roman storage room underneath Barcelona's streets. When they burst, the salt is released and spilt everywhere. Salt is a very hygroscopic mineral. It is impossible for that salt stored underneath the city's streets in a non-sealed container to not be one giant block of wet, melted sold after 500 years of humidity. It happens to kitchen salt if not stored in a dry place, let alone salt from the 16th century.
