Minor Plot hole: The remnants of a plane crashes in the ocean over Elastigirl and her children even though she transformed herself as a parachute to slow-down her family’s fall into the water. Did the plane slowdown in order to accommodate Elastigirl and create drama in the scene? Because as far as we know, a crashing plane has less air resistance than a fucking parachute.
Minor Plot hole: When Elastigirl leaves Dash and Violet in a cave in order to save their dad, she gives each of them a mask that was originally in her backpack. The problem is that when their plane crashed, they were left alone in the ocean with nothing but their skin-tight pocketless superhero outfits. So where did the superhero mother hide those masks? That’s a good way to start traumatizing children – especially considering that the kids then put those masks straight on their faces and never take them off until the end of the movie. Gross.

Transformers: Age of Extinction
Minor Plot hole: The Government and CIA have very effective transformer detection technology to find alien robots (like Ratchet near a harbor) but not Optimus Prime when he is hiding under Marky Mark’s barn with a few henchmen waving the device just above him. Speaking of which, what kind of barn has a secret basement big enough for a giant 30 feet-tall robot to hide in without making any sounds?
Minor Plot hole: The new human-built KSI robots can transform in the air on a molecular level without having to deal with gravity but still decide to climb a Chinese building to get to the main characters instead of just dematerializing and fly on top of them in 5 seconds. Remember screenwriters, if you create enemies that are too strong for your main characters – you’ll have to take the stupid route to make it work, except it won’t.
Major Plot hole: In the final action sequence of Act 1, when Marky Mark and pals are fleeing the CIA in a rally car, they all somehow decide to leave their...

X-Men Days of Future Past
Minor Plot hole: Mystique helps a bunch of mutants escape a busy Vietnam military base in a cargo plane while being disguised as an army colonel and the moment they leave she turns around and morphs into a blonde chick in front of hundreds of other soldiers and no one notices her.
Furthermore, the plan itself is pointless since Mystique didn't incapacitate or kill William Stryker who left the tent and identified the plane that the mutants took to escape. He has legal authority and could simply reorder the plane to land or prepare a nice welcoming committee for them. So Mystique’s full introduction scene served nothing.
Minor plot hole: Quicksilver puts on his headphones to listen to ‘’time in a bottle’’ on his Walkman while he dispatches the guards in the Pentagon kitchen even though the whole sequence lasts 0.005 second in real-time. Quicksilver might be lightning fast but his 1970s Sony Walkman sure as hell isn't.
The Dark Knight Rises
Minor Plot hole: So the Gotham police force is finally out of the sewers after 5 months of increasing malnutrition and gay urges. Their plan? Find Bane’s army (soldiers with AK-47s and tanks) and charge them with a few handguns. No surprise. No surrounding strategy. Just a good old suicidal medieval B-line. It’s a miracle Bane’s soldiers also happened to be retards themselves and decided to fist fight trained police officers instead of mowing them down with their weapons. But one thing is even weirder: all the cops were clean-shaved. This means that aside from food – Gillette razors and creams were the number 1 item sent in the sewers.
Minor Plot hole: People on the internet complain that Batman appeared out of nowhere in Gotham city after leaving the desert. Those same people would probably call on the UN Security council for a drone strike on Christopher Nolan’s house if they considered the fact that Bruce Wayne had to spend days hiding around one of Gotham’s destroyed bridge to paint a batman symbol with gasoline.

What is a plot hole ?
Plot holes are contradictions in a screenplay. The elements that are contradicted can both be mentioned on paper or implied by the premise and universe of the screenplay.
There are 3 types of plot holes : minor plot holes, major plot holes, and super plot holes. They all refer to the same basic concept but are separated by the reach their contradictions have on the overall story.
Movieplotholes simply tries to identify all of them in popular films. There are three other types of errors that can be found in screenplays and we encourage you to visit the definition page to see our in-depth approach to find them all.
