Plot hole: Spoiler Alert: When Finney gets the rope that was hidden in the wall, he needs to thread it through the window bars about 8 feet above his head. After trying to lasso the rope through the bars, he grabs a rolled-up carpet and threads the rope from the bottom of the carpet through the bars and it wraps itself around the bars. There is no way a rope (or even a bendable cable) would be able to thread itself 8 feet through a carpet. After he grabs it, you can tell it's a loose rope, not a stiff wire.

Continuity mistake: Near the end of the movie, Tau comes over to Walt 's house at 4pm. After locking Tau up in the room and leaving it is broad daylight. However, by the time Walt gets over to the gang banger's apartment it is pitch dark. Couldn't have taken more than 60 minutes to get there even with stopping to call Tau's sister. Detroit is in Eastern time so it doesn't get pitch dark until at least 7pm, later in daylight savings time, which is probably what time of year it was since it was obviously warm weather.

Factual error: In movie plots that take place hundreds or even thousands of years ago, the characters have perfectly white, straight teeth. It is a known fact that Queen Elizabeth I was virtually toothless by age 40. Good dental hygiene didn't really exist until after WWII. Some movies get it right, but only for the bad guys.

Deliberate mistake: When a man and woman have sex in a movie scene, after the sex is over the woman covers her breasts with the blanket/sheet and the man covers up from the waist down. Also, if the woman gets up off the bed, she drags the bed-sheet with her to cover up. You just had sex, why would you all of a sudden have modesty? Also, they always have sex under the covers. Who has sex under the covers?

Question: The Lord of Downton in the movie states "The King and Queen are coming to Downton." Since they are British, wouldn't he have said, "Your Majesties are coming to Downton"? Also, isn't the wife of the monarch of the United Kingdom called the "King Consort" not the Queen? I know Prince Philip is not called "King", he is the Queen Consort.

Plot hole: When Lisbeth is able to raise the bridge therefore stopping her from being chased, while the villains in the car couldn't continue chasing her, they could have continued shooting at her from the raised bridge - having an even better vantage point - but for some reason they stopped shooting.

Plot hole: When Lisbeth's techie friend "Plague" sets up outside her childhood mansion in the van with the radar dish, no-one in the mansion notices this big van with a big radar dish pointing at the mansion even when one of the villains is able to find a lone sniper "Ed Needham" on a distant hill.

Continuity mistake: Spoiler alert: At the end of the movie "Rose" stabs "Miles." We see her pull out the knife and it looks like a Rambo-type hunting knife. After she stabs him, we see the knife covered in blood but it is a different type of knife. It looks more like a skinning knife or filet knife.

Question: Not sure this is a movie mistake. When the mom is sawing off her own head, wouldn't the sawing have stopped once she cut through her spinal cord? The muscles in her arms/hands would have gone limp and her head would not completely fall off - though it would fall forward. You don't actually see her head fall but you hear the bang on the floor and her head is missing at the end.

Factual error: Spoiler: In the scene toward the end of the movie when the dad is burned alive, his skin is completely black but his clothes are still on and intact, just blackened. With fire hot enough to completely blacken the skin, it would have burnt the clothes completely off (or at most they would have been shredded rags). (01:51:25)

Continuity mistake: When Lady Susan is counseling her daughter Frederica in her bedroom, the shot shows an unlit candle on a dresser behind Lady Susan. The shot changes back and forth between Frederica and Lady Susan. When the shot changes back to Lady Susan, the unlit candle is gone, though there is no one else in the room.

Factual error: When the criminal gang arrives at the Haberdashery and kills Minnie, Six-Horse Judy, et al, there is blood everywhere, including big smears on the floor. In the 1860's/70's, it would have been virtually impossible to clean up all that blood, especially on wood plank floors, but when the second stagecoach arrives carrying Major Warren, John Ruth, Daisy and Chris Mannix they don't notice that a massacre just occurred there. Even today, with much better cleaning tools and solutions, it would be hard.

Continuity mistake: SPOILER: The boy, Roger, finds a glove in a secret drawer in Mr. Holmes' room. The glove is lying perfectly flat in the drawer. It had supposedly been there for years unknown to Mr. Holmes. Later, in a flashback scene, it shows Dr. Watson putting the glove in the drawer. When he puts the glove in the secret drawer, it is not laid flat in the drawer - it has an obvious upward bend in the glove. Since the glove had been in the drawer, untouched, for years, it should have still had that upward bend.

Continuity mistake: In the scene near the end of the movie where the kidnapped father overpowers one of the bad guys and grabs his gun, he shoots out the front tire of the truck and he and Justin go running away. In the very next scene, Tyler and his buddy jump in the truck to chase the father and son and the tire on the truck is miraculously fixed and inflated.
