Top Gun: Maverick (2022)

Other mistake: During the training scenes, aviators are told to keep a 500 to a 1000 ft safety bubble around them at all times. In multiple scenes you can see where they are almost flying in a wingtip formation.

Movie Medic

Deliberate mistake: During the previous scenes where Maverick is flying the Darkstar spy plane, his helmet is lit up on the inside, so we can see his face. In reality the light would be reflecting off the plexiglass, and we would not be able to see his face, and he would not be able to see.

The Protégé (2021)

Continuity mistake: When Jackson is shot with shotgun he "flies" across the bathroom, hits the wall, and falls into the tub on his right side with his left leg on top of the tub and leaning to right. Next shot he is on his back. (00:26:25)

The Protégé (2021)

Factual error: When the maid is shot with the shotgun, she flies back multiple feet. In reality, it would only be 1 or possibly 2 feet. (00:25:20)

The Marksman (2021)

Factual error: The scope Jim is using is completely wrong (yes I know he tested the wind using dirt) but as a U.S.M.C. Marksman his scope would have had mil-dots on both the horizontal and vertical bars. (00:04:24)

Movie Medic

Factual error: After the investigation the barrier tape (crime scene tape) would have been taken down. Also, there is no reason to have barrier tape inside a residence if the outside is already marked. (00:29:28 - 00:30:00)

The Marksman (2021)

Factual error: Jim is a former Marine and would never "chicken wing" the holding of that rifle the way he did. Even if that's the way he was taught back in?, over the years he would have learned and adapted the correct stance. (00:04:29)

Movie Medic

Factual error: Operators do NOT leave their dead in the field. John made the comment that 1 of his men were killed, but they did not bring his body out. (00:07:00)

Wrath of Man (2021)

Factual error: When "H" is shooting at the target, the paper holes are wrong. Bullets make clean precise holes on paper targets. (00:08:20)

Nobody (2021)

Factual error: Neighbor states: '72 Challenger, 4.9-liter, V8. The '72 Challenger came with a 3.7-liter slant-6, 5.2 and 5.6-liter V8. (00:11:30)

Suggested correction: Sounds like the neighbor is mistaken, which would just be a character mistake. Remember, the car wasn't his. He had just inherited it, recently as Hutch points out. He admittedly didn't even know the correct 0 to 60 time.

Mortal Kombat (2021)

Factual error: When Jax's SUV is hit by ice it punctures the body but the windows remain intact. (00:21:26)

Suggested correction: I didn't see any ice puncture the body, certainly not any that would break any window. Later you see dents in the hood, but that doesn't mean the windows should be broken. I've had severe hail damage in real life where the body of the car was dented without any windows being cracked.

At 22:54 you will see multiple dents into the hood up to about an 1-2" deep. At 27:35 you will see multiple dents so deep that the paint is gone and the bare body is showing. Sorry, at that force the windows would at least cracked if not more.

Movie Medic

The glass used in car windshields is about a quarter inch thick, seven times thicker than the sheet metal used in body panels. It is also about five times stronger. It wouldn't necessarily break or crack.

Well you have your view and I have mine. Cheers mate.

Nobody (2021)

Deliberate mistake: Hutch states he had a "Suppressed H&K USP .45 at the back of his head. The picture shows a H&K USP 9mm. (00:58:40)

Nobody (2021)

Other mistake: When the Russians broke into Hutches house they used a shotgun to "unlock" the front door. That would have woken up the neighborhood.

Nobody (2021)

Continuity mistake: When the camera pans across the back of the police car you see it has blue lights on the top light bar. In the next shot it has all yellow lights.

Nobody (2021)

Revealing mistake: Steve's and Diana's Peugeot (2300 lbs) gets sideswiped by a Fahd APC (11.6 tons) but has no damage to its rear quarter panel. (01:20:50 - 01:25:20)

Suggested correction: He only wipes away "204", not "91." The next shot of the board, the "91" is still there and the "204" is still gone.

Nobody (2021)

Deliberate mistake: After the car crashes into the light pole and flips over. The top light is still functioning even though it's nowhere near the original spot.
