The Expendables 2

Factual error: As the guys zipline down the electric cables, they continue past every pylon without a problem. Cables are connected to pylons, so the connections to the zipline couldn't move past pylons freely. (00:08:10)

Factual error: In the opening sequence, there's a bit where they lower a door/ramp at the back of the plane to load jetskis onto it. They only show the door opened from inside the plane, probably because looking at it from outside, the actual plane tapers off towards the end, and doesn't have space for a large access ramp like that.

Continuity mistake: When the villains get the last of the plutonium out of the cache, we see one villain shoot the chain suspending a concrete cap; causing it to fall and close the hole. A short time later, we see Maggie exclaim that the plutonium is gone. The cap could not have been lifted because all the miners were taken away, yet the cap is gone and we can see into the cache.

Question: When Maggie asks Barney if he still thinks about Billy after his death, he says "We keep it light until we have to get dark. Then we go pitch black." What exactly does Barney mean by this?

Answer: "We keep it light" refers to their mood. They joke around and tease each other and have fun. "Till we go dark" is when they get serious for killing. "We go pitch black." Meaning as dark and brutal killing machines as possible.
