  • (at around 1h 30 mins) When the Stark Jet enters the UK, the caption states the Dorset coastline. Flying from Amsterdam to London you would cross the eastern coast of England, entering over the coast of Essex but the Dorset Chalk Cliffs are on the South West coastline which is 160 miles away.
  • (at around 1h 15 mins) Multiple errors relative to European trains. Spider-Man is shown hopping atop a high-speed "bullet train" from Prague to Berlin, and later inadvertently ending up on one from Berlin to the Netherlands. There are no bullet trains at all in the Czech Republic, and none that directly connect Berlin to any destination in the Netherlands - certainly not to the small town where Spider-Man ends up. Additionally, a train driving through Berlin would not have the speed shown in the film. Further, his classmates appear to travel from Prague to London via train. There is no direct train route of any kind between the two cities, and it would take nearly a full day of travel to connect through a minimum of four stations en route.
  • (at around 35 mins) Based on the shots in the scenes both prior and after, the students are staying at a hotel on the main island of Venice. When they depart, a bus picks them up. However, in reality, motor vehicles are not allowed in the city, especially not buses or coaches. It would be impossible for them to navigate the winding streets or canals.
  • This film succumbs to the now very tired goof of hand guns making metallic clickety noises as they are raised. Apparently sound people believe the audience needs to hear this and is supposedly the sound of a safety being removed. Except, the hand guns making the sounds are Glocks which have no external or manual safeties. They do not make any noise.
  • (at around 1h 6 mins) When Spider-man talks to MJ outside her hotel room, the collar of his shirt jumps from being tucked in to his backpack strap to bring visible.
  • (at around 1h 50 mins) When MJ finds Peter on Tower Bridge, they share a long hug. Peter's face is bleeding and in the wide shots the blood transfer to MJ's jacket, left shoulder, can be seen but in the close up shots the blood is absent.
  • (at around 15 mins) Security guards in Italian airports don't carry long guns or wear uniforms that look like they are from the USSR.
  • (at around 57 mins) Peter says he is under 21 when Beck offers him a drink. Based on his age during Captain America: Civil War (2016) he should be 17 or 18 now. The legal drinking age in the Czech Republic (and most other EU member states) is 18.
  • (at around 1h 16 mins) The license plate of Nick Fury's car in Berlin is MTU 83779. While this combination has a meaning in the wider sense (see trivia), it is invalid. MTU is not registered for any German city/county and this specific combination of letters and numbers (ABC 12345 instead of the usual AB CD 1234) is reserved for official use only. Additionally, the front plate has the sticker for the emissions test which is not issued anymore since 2010.
  • (at around 56 mins) Fury says that he and Maria Hill will travel to the Europol headquarters in Berlin, Germany. However, it is actually located in The Hague, Netherlands (although it could have been moved during the Blip for unstated reasons).
  • Czech Republic license plates in general have the format 1A1 1111, with letter and numbers in this order. Most license plates in Prague scenes are different.
  • (at around 45 mins) The scene where Peter is sitting on Charles Bridge with Mysterio shows the bridge at least one level higher than the adjacent bridge. Both adjacent bridges, Mánes Bridge and Bridge of Legions are in the same level as Charles Bridge.
  • (at around 1h 15 mins) The train that departs from Prague uses thousands of Volts electricity, starting from 15000 V. There is no way Peter would have survived the trip from Prague to Berlin on the top of the train, as electricity of this voltage is lethal even from a certain proximity, without even touching the cable that's right next to Peter.
  • (at around 1h 15 mins) The train from Prague to Berlin is a RailJet Express, which doesn't go with a locomotive we see in the movie. RailJet locomotives are newer types, with a painting that fits the rest of the train. The one in the movie has the classic Czech Railways painting, not used on RailJet trains.
  • The Dutch village of 'Broek op Langedijk' is actually the courtyard of a Prague restaurant, which explains the village's typical Central European style of architecture. The actual village of Broek op Langedijk is located just north of Amsterdam and is known for the many agricultural canals that intersect the village.
  • (at around 21 mins) During the attack in Venice, Peter gets soaked when the water pushes him against the railing. Moments later, when he retaliates against the water elemental, his clothes are completely dry and his hair is slightly damp.
  • (at around 15 mins) During the scene in the arrivals terminal of the Venice Marco Polo Airport a cruise ship can be seen through the windows behind Peter. While the airport is built on the Adriatic coast the port for Venice is on the main island.
  • (at around 37 mins) During the stop in Austria, the price for gasoline at the gas station is below 1 EUR, for one type even below 50 Cents. This is by far lower than any gasoline price in Austria in the last decade and below 50 Cents is even impossible due to the taxes on gasoline.
  • (at around 59 mins) Peter and his classmates are identified as being 16. In Spider-Man: Homecoming (2017), Peter tells Tony Stark that he is 15. That movie takes place two months after the events of Captain America: Civil War (2016), which takes place two years before Avengers: Infinity War (2018). If Peter was 15 in Civil War/Homecoming, he would have been 17 in Infinity War. Far From Home takes place eight months after the events of Avengers: Endgame (2019), meaning that Peter and his classmates would be closer to 18.
  • One of the ongoing jokes throughout the movie is Brad Davis wasn't blipped, so he's much more developed and athletic than someone like Peter Parker. But this would mean he's aged five years. If he's aged five years, he would have already graduated from high school; high school is only four years in the United States. The "undoing of the blip" shows that school was, indeed, going while the others were blipped out of existence. However, if Brad was not in high school when the Snap occurred, but was in middle school, five years later he would be a classmate of Peter Parker, Ned, Betty, MJ, and the rest as depicted in the film.
  • During the Tower Bridge battle, there are several very brief shots that show that there are no cars on the bridge.
  • (at around 1h 27 mins) Happy lands the jet in the tulip field and hovers over it for 15 minutes, according to his own words. As the jet flies away, however, the field is absolutely intact. Not one single spec of dust or tulip has moved out of place.
  • (at around 1h 16 mins) When Peter arrives in Berlin and jumps from the train, people look up... but in various directions, not directly at him.
  • (at around 1h 16 mins) When Peter jumps from the train in Berlin, he lands next to a woman. She screams "Nacht Monkey" and runs away, but the literal translation of "Night Monkey" would be "Nacht-Affe". It makes no sense she would translate just half of the name (or even translate it at all). After all, Spider-Man is named Spider-Man in Germany too.
  • (at around 1h 25 mins) As Happy and Peter are in the cabin of the private jet leaving the Netherlands, Happy is shown stitching Peter's right, rear, shoulder. Although he makes the right hand movements, Happy holds no needle, and no string is seen leading from his fingertips to Peter's shoulder.
  • (at around 2h 5 mins) All the S.H.I.E.L.D. cars (product placement Audis) have a futuristic electric whirring sound when driving. But the one in the post credits scene has been made to sound like it has a regular internal combustion engine.
  • (at around 35 mins) After Venice, the bus depart for Prague, and in the next shot we've been told to be in the "Eastern Alps, Austria", but as the shot is taken the bus is driving to Cortina d'Ampezzo, visible in the background. The drone attack instead happens between the Valparola pass and the Falzarego pass. So they couldn't be in Austria yet.
  • The party visit Prague and elect to view the "Carnival of Lights". This takes place in October. When Happy rescues Peter from the Netherlands, the tulips are in full bloom. Tulip season lasts from March to May. And the trip begins just after the school year ends in New York City, which is the last Friday in June, placing these events in early July.
  • (at around 1h 40 mins) The Guards at the Tower of London are shown firing standard configuration assault rifles, probably M16's, but the standard issue service rifle in the UK is the SA80, which has a distinctive bullpup configuration.
  • (at around 32 mins) When Mysterio is showing the hologram of his Earth falling to the Fire Elemental, Earth erodes and the particles fall 'down'. There is no 'down' in space.
  • (at around 1h 27 mins) When Happy and Peter are on the plane above the tulip field, the degree to which Peter's eyes are inflamed from crying varies widely from shot to shot. His eyes are very red and irritated while sitting, then when he stands, they're less inflamed, then a shot later, they're redder. When he goes to build his new suit, the inflammation is completely gone.
  • (at around 1h 16 mins) When Peter arrives at the station in Berlin, there are multiple red signs with a train logo and the German word "Bahn" on it. The design of the sign is not in compliance with German rail operator Deutsche Bahn's corporate identity. Additionally, it is totally meaningless.
  • (at around 1h 40 mins) When Happy and the school group run "into the Crown Jewels vault" they are actually running into the White Tower, not the Crown Jewels vault which is actually in a completely separate building within the Tower of London.
  • (at around 1h 40 mins) At the Tower of London, Palace Gaurds are shooting at the drones. In reality they would not be there. The Tower of London is guarded by Yoaman Warders aka Beefeaters.

Spoilers

  • The main weapon used against Spider-Man are drones with projectors. The technology uses light to project an image. Light isn't a solid, so even if it projected a shape, you would be able to see inside it to see the drones. Spider-Man goes inside the image at one stage and he can see the drones in a battle scene, again suggesting the image has a solid surface you cannot see through with an inside and an outside. Light just doesn't work like that. It isn't a solid, and has to be projected onto a solid to see it being reflected (like a movie screen) or refracted (like a rainbow). But even rainbows are transparent.
  • (at around 1h 55 mins) The final twist about Peter's identity is possible only if SHIELD kept Mysterio's activities a secret. SHIELD, or the Skrulls who impersonate them have no reason to do so, especially as Peter sabotaged the hologram trick of Mysterio, and that certainly went viral in the age of smartphones.
  • (at around 1h) When Peter gives the glasses to Beck, he has to go through a transfer routine with EDITH -- however, when Beck gives them back on the bridge (at around 1h 45 mins), Peter just puts them on and EDITH responds without any required transfer protocol. This is because Peter had already been authorized to access EDITH, so no new transfer protocol should be necessary.
  • Mysterio's plan about being the greatest superhero ever would fall apart at the first real enemy. He would have nowhere to hide the drones, if his foe is not a hologram. This merely proves that Quentin Beck is in fact unstable--the reason Stark had fired him in the first place.
  • (at around 33 mins) Nick Fury mentions that Dr. Strange is unavailable when Peter asks about him. However, in Thor: Ragnarok (2017), Strange makes it clear that inter-dimensional crises are his top priority - surely the Elementals would be relevant enough for Strange to at least consider investigating. Perhaps Strange did investigate, and discovered there was nothing inter-dimensional about this - in which case Mysterio's fraud would have fallen apart and we would not have this movie.
  • Mysterio has an arsenal of armed drones at his disposal. They are shown to be implemented in the orbital Stark Industries satellite as a defensive mechanism. They were constructed by William Ginter Riva during his tenure at Stark Industries, presumably after his appearance in Iron Man (2008) (the fifteen years between IM1 and Avengers: Endgame (2019)). However, the Stark Industries weapons division was shut down in IM1. While they may have not decommissioned all their past products (for example, the sonic cannons made before the division's shutdown were implemented in the War Machine armor in Captain America: Civil War (2016)), the fact that the Stark Industries issued attack drones - weapons - were not shown in the MCU until this point is a plot hole, since the drones were made after the division's shutdown.
  • (at around 1h 55 mins) The swinging date at the end of the film is a huge risk of giving away Spider-Man's secret identity, as at that point, MJ is known to be the girlfriend of Peter Parker.
  • (at around 21 mins) The drones we see in the movie wouldn't be able to generate a water splash like the one that hits Peter in the battle in Venice.
  • (at around 28 mins) At the beginning of the movie, Nick Fury tells Peter that's it's great to finally meet Spider-Man. However, they were both at Tony Stark's funeral at the end of Avengers: Endgame (2019). It seems unlikely that they would not have met there. However, it is revealed in the post-credits scene that Fury was only Talos impersonating Fury, so it makes sense that Talos would slip up and accidentally say something other than what Fury would say in that situation.
  • A major plot point is that Mysterio and his crew use holographic projectors mounted on their drones to generate their illusions. Once they hijack the Stark drones with the help of EDITH, they announce that they can now generate a much bigger illusion. The problem is, the Stark drones come straight from the satellite to London, with no stops along the way to add the projectors. The drones, by themselves, cannot project illusions. The addition of thousands of new drones will not help create an even larger illusion.
  • (at around 1h 40 mins) During the Tower of London sequences as the drones converge on Happy and Peter's classmates, Happy yells out his confession: "I'm in love with Spider-Man's aunt!" But he was near Peter's classmates, including Flash, who don't know Peter is Spider-Man, effectively revealing Peter's secret identity. He should have said "I'm in love with Peter Parker's aunt!" instead.
  • (at around 1h 21 mins) After Mysterio is shot in Berlin, you can see a crane truck in the background with a company logo and a phone number on it. The number (minus country and city code) is only four digits long which is virtually impossible in a city like Berlin.
