Revealing mistake: A major selling point of the movie is the CGI technology used to de-age Will Smith. The effect works for the most part of the movie, including scenes in daylight, but in the last handful of minutes, maybe because of the plain 'happy-ending' light used, maybe for budget reasons, the face of Junior is thoroughly unconvincing, with a dramatic drop in quality in textures and modelization. (01:44:30)
Continuity mistake: In the movie ending, the three main characters (and two main actors) are walking off together following Will Smith Sr. That 'knows a place' to eat. Notice on the left part of the frame, along the path they are traveling, a couple of students; he has a beige jacket, yellow-ish sneakers and jeans, she has a blue jacket, and they are talking with another girl with a lighter blue jacket. In the next shot Danny asks him "So you settled down on major yet?" and the two aforementioned students are behind them, standing at the beginning of the walkway. (01:45:35)
Plot hole: While a tracker can certainly make it so that Junior knows where Brogan is at a given moment, it is impossible for Junior to know where exactly the plane is going to land and be lying in wait, with Brogan walking right past him. Junior would have to be well ahead of the plane in order to do that, and know exactly what direction Brogan would walk to cut him off and ambush him.
Henry: I'm not gonna shoot you.
Junior: Mind if I shoot you?
Junior: You made a person out of another person, then you sent me to kill him. You made a choice to do this to me.
Question: At the end of the movie, Will Smith (the older one) has a present for his son/brother/younger self; his official documents he apparently did not have. Passport, driving license and birth certificate; he congratulates him on his name choice. And he gives those to him as Junior is walking out of the college campus, which he obviously is already frequenting and where he made many friends. I know the US system allows undocumented students, but can you even enroll without the most basic ID? In particular since he is in Georgia, which reportedly is one of the strictest states about it.
