Những Lỗi Sai trong phim: Kong Skull Island (2017) |Bạn Có Biết?

  • 0:08 - 0:12
    Today I will continue to analyze the goofs in the movie Kong: Skull Island,
  • 0:12 - 0:17
    for entertainment purposes, not criticism,
  • 0:17 - 0:21
    because it's obvious that the big monsters appearing in the movie are fictional already.
  • 0:21 - 0:24
    In addition, I am not the one who found these mistakes,
  • 0:24 - 0:29
    I just picked out from the opinions of others.
  • 0:29 - 0:33
    ok, not introduce anymore, let's get started.
  • 0:33 - 0:37
    Anachronisms
  • 0:37 - 0:40
    First, the film is set in 1973.
  • 0:40 - 0:46
    The graphics on the seismic devices are far beyond the capabilities of computers in 1973,
  • 0:46 - 0:49
    let alone portable computers.
  • 0:49 - 0:53
    The film depicts an anti-Vietnam War protest in 1973
  • 0:53 - 0:57
    and treats President Richard Nixon's troop withdrawal announcement as a surprise.
  • 0:57 - 1:02
    In fact, the Paris Accords had been signed in December 1972
  • 1:02 - 1:12
    and anti-war demonstrations petered out after Nixon accepted cease-fire terms the previous May.
  • 1:12 - 1:21
    It was no secret to anyone in January 1973 that U.S. military involvement in Vietnam was over.
  • 1:26 - 1:33
    Early in the movie, Packard reaches for a box of cigars, with a Rocky Patel cigar label,
  • 1:33 - 1:35
    which contains his medals.
  • 1:35 - 1:39
    Rocky Patel Cigar Company has only been around since 2002.
  • 1:44 - 1:49
    The cargo ship displays a giant "no smoking" sign in red letters.
  • 1:49 - 1:54
    Smoking bans on general merchant vessels became effective only in 2009.
  • 1:54 - 2:00
    No ship in the 70's would have had such instructions prominently painted on the deck.
  • 2:00 - 2:05
    Weaver is inspecting B&W film in her darkroom by holding it up to the light.
  • 2:05 - 2:14
    The edge marking says Kodak 400TX, a 2007 model.
  • 2:14 - 2:18
    When she is detailing her military experience
  • 2:18 - 2:25
    Mason mentions she was "...embedded with MACV-SOG".
  • 2:25 - 2:31
    The practice of embedding journalists with military units during wartime
  • 2:31 - 2:35
    become a formal practice until the Iraq War of 2003.
  • 2:35 - 2:39
    Prior to that many journalists during the Vietnam War,
  • 2:39 - 2:42
    like Joseph L. Galloway who was with the 7th Cavalry at the Ia Drang Valley,
  • 2:42 - 2:46
    had to find their own way to the battlefield.
  • 2:46 - 2:54
    The Athena cargo ship used to carry the team to the island wasn't built until 2003.
  • 2:54 - 3:01
    The Ka-Bar combat knife carried by one of the soldiers had serrations on the back edge.
  • 3:01 - 3:05
    The serrations shown are a copyrighted pattern of the Spyderco company
  • 3:05 - 3:08
    that did not exist before 1981.
  • 3:08 - 3:18
    One of the technical staff is referred to as a "data wrangler," a 21st century job title.
  • 3:19 - 3:22
    The satellite that produced the imagery is called Landsat in the film.
  • 3:22 - 3:29
    The satellite launched in 1972 was called Earth Resources Technology Satellite (ERTS).
  • 3:29 - 3:35
    Its name was changed to Landsat in 1975, two years after the film was set.
  • 3:35 - 3:39
    Character error
  • 3:39 - 3:44
    The Japanese soldier carried his sword in a wooden scabbard.
  • 3:44 - 3:47
    This type of case is called a shira saya (resting scabbard).
  • 3:47 - 3:55
    It is used to store a Japanese sword, not carry it.
  • 3:55 - 3:59
    As a former SAS operator,
  • 3:59 - 4:03
    it is highly unlikely that Conrad would lead a jungle mission
  • 4:03 - 4:09
    equipped only with a tight t-shirt and a shoulder holster.
  • 4:09 - 4:12
    Despite being an alleged former SAS member,
  • 4:12 - 4:13
    James Conrad not only "sweeps"
  • 4:13 - 4:15
    passes the muzzle of his weapon across the bodies of someone he doesn't want to shoot
  • 4:15 - 4:19
    several people, he clearly fires directly over the head of Mason Weaver
  • 4:19 - 4:21
    while she is standing within five feet of him.
  • 4:21 - 4:26
    Any trained professional would avoid both of these
  • 4:26 - 4:32
    as they could easily result in the friendly fire injury or death of a team member.
  • 4:32 - 4:37
    Several of the helicopters get swatted out of the air when they get too close to Kong.
  • 4:37 - 4:40
    These flight crews have had sufficient time to recognize
  • 4:40 - 4:43
    and evaluate the giant ape standing in front of them,
  • 4:43 - 4:46
    and are at that time a safe distance away.
  • 4:46 - 4:49
    There would be absolutely no reason to fly within the ape's reach
  • 4:49 - 4:52
    while attacking him with their helicopter based weapons.
  • 4:52 - 4:58
    No pilot, either experienced or inexperienced, would do such a thing.
  • 4:58 - 5:05
    They lose eight or ten aircraft simply because they are flying at low altitude right next to Kong.
  • 5:05 - 5:09
    Continuity
  • 5:09 - 5:16
    The establishing shot of the Athena shows a CH-47 Chinook helicopter on the bow,
  • 5:16 - 5:19
    four UH-1 Hueys amidships,
  • 5:19 - 5:23
    and one CH-53 Sea Stallion on the stern.
  • 5:23 - 5:28
    In the helicopter battle with Kong later, at least 10 Hueys are shown.
  • 5:32 - 5:35
    During the helicopters versus Kong fight,
  • 5:35 - 5:41
    the time of day changes multiple times, from sunset to bright sunlight.
  • 5:41 - 5:46
    Packard uses an M14 throughout the movie.
  • 5:46 - 5:50
    At one point you see him looking though a scope on his rifle.
  • 5:50 - 5:54
    Later on you see him holding the rifle and the scope is nowhere to be seen.
  • 5:54 - 6:01
    While Randa and Brooks are speaking with Senator Willis in the corridor outside his office,
  • 6:01 - 6:05
    a female extra approaches them from behind and enters a room.
  • 6:05 - 6:09
    A few seconds later, the same extra again approaches them from behind
  • 6:09 - 6:11
    and reenters the same room.
  • 6:11 - 6:15
    When Weaver climbs the hill to fire the flare at the end of the movie,
  • 6:15 - 6:19
    the surface of the hill changes substantially between shots.
  • 6:19 - 6:23
    In one, it's a series of rock columns with cuts, then it becomes a rounded rock hilltop,
  • 6:23 - 6:29
    then it's covered in vegetation, then it's back to a rounded rock hilltop.
  • 6:29 - 6:36
    When Kong slices the skullcrawler with a boat propeller there is a gaping cut on its neck,
  • 6:36 - 6:39
    yet a couple seconds later the wound is gone.
  • 6:39 - 6:42
    When Kong saves Weaver from drowning,
  • 6:42 - 6:47
    she is lying in his hand upside down when she should have been upright.
  • 6:47 - 6:53
    This is shown when Kong reaches into the river and grabs her.
  • 6:53 - 6:57
    After Kong saves her from the alpha Skullcrawler,
  • 6:57 - 7:01
    Weaver's position in Kong's hand changes as he puts her down.
  • 7:01 - 7:08
    She goes from being inverted to being sideways then returns to her original position.
  • 7:08 - 7:12
    Errors in geography
  • 7:12 - 7:20
    The opening scene starts on the beach, followed by a short foot chase through the woods.
  • 7:20 - 7:25
    Suddenly they come to the edge of a cliff that is several hundred feet above a valley below.
  • 7:25 - 7:29
    Since they started out on the beach at sea level,
  • 7:29 - 7:34
    and during their short run through the woods they obviously did not climb a mountain,
  • 7:34 - 7:37
    it is impossible for them to come to a valley lower than sea level
  • 7:37 - 7:40
    that close to shore that is not filled with water (aka a lagoon).
  • 7:41 - 7:44
    Factual errors
  • 7:44 - 7:48
    After sitting (and breaking down) for almost 30 years,
  • 7:48 - 7:53
    it is doubtful the aviation fuel would cause the home made boat's engine to turn over,
  • 7:53 - 7:56
    let alone run.
  • 7:56 - 7:58
    When Packard looks in his box of medals,
  • 7:58 - 8:03
    there are a couple dog tags in there with black rubber "silencers" around their edges.
  • 8:03 - 8:08
    These were used extensively in Vietnam to keep the two tags from rubbing together
  • 8:08 - 8:09
    and creating noise.
  • 8:09 - 8:17
    Yet later when the dead men's dog tags are collected, not a single one has a silencer.
  • 8:17 - 8:20
    After the several helicopter crashes,
  • 8:20 - 8:24
    the pilots are shown slogging through the jungle in regular infantry "steel pot" helmets
  • 8:24 - 8:26
    and fatigues.
  • 8:26 - 8:33
    Pilots don't carry "backup helmets" and they would have had only their flight helmet
  • 8:33 - 8:37
    or maybe a rolled up cap in their flight suit.
  • 8:37 - 8:41
    They don't bring infantry gear to change into in case they crash.
  • 8:41 - 8:45
    When she is detailing her military experience
  • 8:45 - 8:49
    Mason mentions she was "...embedded with MACV-SOG".
  • 8:49 - 8:52
    MACV-SOG stood for Military Assistance Command Vietnam
  • 8:52 - 8:55
    Special Operations/Studies and Observations Group.
  • 8:55 - 8:57
    It was comprised of Vietnamese and American troops
  • 8:57 - 9:01
    Special Operations Forces like the Green Berets and SEALs
  • 9:01 - 9:07
    and was a joint operation with the CIA concerned with behind the lines operations,
  • 9:07 - 9:11
    making it highly unlikely that a journalist, especially a female photojournalist,
  • 9:11 - 9:13
    would be attached to them.
  • 9:13 - 9:18
    At the beginning when the American pilot shoots at the Japanese pilot
  • 9:18 - 9:22
    and empties his 45 a clicking is heard as he continues to pull the trigger.
  • 9:22 - 9:24
    When a 45 is empty
  • 9:24 - 9:30
    and the slide is locked back the trigger is also locked out so there is no way it would be clicking.
  • 9:30 - 9:36
    One pilot is shown carrying and using an AK-47.
  • 9:36 - 9:40
    While this MAY have been acceptable on a combat mission in Vietnam,
  • 9:40 - 9:44
    in a situation where there are no other troops similarly armed,
  • 9:44 - 9:47
    it would be unacceptable and rather foolish.
  • 9:47 - 9:49
    The shooter would be unable to either receive additional ammunition
  • 9:49 - 9:52
    from a teammate in a crisis.
  • 9:52 - 9:59
    When the dog tags of the dead soldiers are collected, they are shown on their "long" chains.
  • 9:59 - 10:03
    In actuality, whenever tags are collected,
  • 10:03 - 10:06
    the tag on the short chain is taken
  • 10:06 - 10:12
    and the tag on the long chain is left of the body to aid future identification.
  • 10:12 - 10:16
    This is a common mistake made in many movies.
  • 10:16 - 10:23
    As the ship approaches Skull Island, it's said they are fifty miles away.
  • 10:23 - 10:30
    That would be well over the horizon so not visible.
  • 10:30 - 10:34
    When Randa inadvertently snaps a picture of the skull crawler
  • 10:34 - 10:41
    before it kills him he flips the camera over and reacts to his impending doom
  • 10:41 - 10:48
    however no camera from this era would had that feature like a smart phone or digital camera.
  • 10:48 - 10:54
    James Conrad says "Sure you could load up on the Atabrine for the malaria...
  • 10:54 - 10:57
    but what about the other bacteria?
  • 10:57 - 11:06
    Malaria is caused by a protozoan parasite, not a bacterium.
  • 11:06 - 11:12
    Admittedly this is about an imaginary species
  • 11:12 - 11:18
    but it defies physics that the flying reptile creature could have carried off Nieves.
  • 11:18 - 11:24
    The maximum carry load for most flying predators is around half their own body weight
  • 11:24 - 11:30
    although a bald eagle was observed carrying a deer fawn that was near its own weight.
  • 11:30 - 11:35
    Nieves is 5' 8" and probably weighs around 165 lbs.
  • 11:35 - 11:39
    The movie creature didn't look much bigger than a Stellar's sea eagle
  • 11:39 - 11:43
    which is one of the largest raptors that carries its prey
  • 11:43 - 11:45
    and whose body weight range maxes out around 20 lbs.
  • 11:52 - 11:55
    Plot holes
  • 11:55 - 11:59
    It seems strange that as at least 2 members of the team are carrying grenade launchers,
  • 11:59 - 12:03
    not one is fired at any of the beasts they encounter.
  • 12:03 - 12:07
    As bullets appear to be doing pretty much nothing,
  • 12:07 - 12:12
    a change of ordnance would probably have made sense.
  • 12:12 - 12:16
    Revealing mistakes
  • 12:16 - 12:21
    After filling his canteen, Jack ends up hiding behind a rock as Kong approaches.
  • 12:21 - 12:25
    Kong tends wounds in the water, but a giant squid attacks him.
  • 12:25 - 12:28
    Yet, despite all the violent activity and water splashing,
  • 12:28 - 12:34
    no waves reach shore nor Jack, for that matter.
  • 12:35 - 12:38
    My video is over.
  • 12:38 - 12:42
    Thanks for watching, see you later.
