Chernobyl Diaries

Corrected entry: It's established early on that Paul speaks pretty fluent Ukrainian, but when he's blinded by radiation sickness, he seemingly cannot understand the soldiers' commands to stop. He's blind, not deaf.

Correction: He does understand them, he just continues to walk towards them saying that they need help.

Plot hole: Natalie uses her cell phone to record the injured and bleeding Chris, but it never occurs to her to use the phone to call for help? And how is it possible that in 2012, she seems to be the only one with a cell phone? It is simply not possible that she could not get a signal - the Chernobyl Exclusion Zone is festooned with mobile telephone masts - precisely because of the inherent danger of being lost there.

Suggested correction: Uri said at the beginning of the film that he has never gotten a signal whilst in that area.

Then Uri is wrong, or he is lying for some bizarre reason. The Chernobyl Exclusion Zone is festooned with mobile antenna masts and if there was one place on earth where you could absolutely guarantee getting a signal, it is there.
