The Dark Knight RisesIgnoring all the plot holes that came before this moment, and there were definitely quite a few, the thing that troubles me most about The Dark Knight Rises was its ending.
We see Bruce Wayne sitting at that table with Selina, but how is it that no one recognizes him? He's a well-known billionaire playboy, yet somehow, no one seems to notice him.
Plus, would Alfred really just sit there and not go up to Bruce?
The HangoverAt the end of The Hangover, after searching for their buddy Doug for over 24 hours, the boys find that he's on the roof of the hotel. Nothing wrong with that, right?
Well, actually, I don't know about you, but if I was stuck on the roof of a hotel I would do everything in my power to get off.
Sure, maybe Doug couldn't make his way back to his room very easily, but over the course of almost two days there was surely something he could have done aside from just throwing his mattress off the roof, right?
ArmageddonThis one is best summed up by the following quote from Ben Affleck: "I asked [Michael Bay], 'Wouldn't it be easier to train astronauts to drill than to teach drillers how to be astronauts?' To which he replied, 'shut the fuck up, Ben'."
Big Ben has a point, right?
The Shawshank RedemptionThe Shawshank Redemption is one of the greatest films ever made, and one of my personal favorties, but there's a glaring plot hole at the end that's too hard to ignore: When the Warden discovers Andy's hole in his cell, a poster is covering it up.
That's all well and dandy, but considering Andy had no roomates, who put the poster back up once he went through the hole?
InterstellarGive me as many theories as you want, but there's still no explaining how Cooper could have possibly saved the human race.
Look, if his future self wouldn't have existed if it weren't for his present self, then how could his future self come back in time to assist his present self in saving the world?
It's called a paradox, people, and it can't be explained.
Guardians of the GalaxyThe film opens with Star-Lord attempting to steal a powerful orb that can destroy entire worlds. Yet, there is absolutely no protection around the orb, nothing guarding it.
Also, if the orb had just been sitting there, why hadn't Thanos, or someone else grabbed it earlier?
For such a sought after weapon, the orb doesn't really seem like it was that difficult to obtain. Until Star-Lord got his hands on it, at least.
Planet of the Apes (2001)By the end of the film, we find out that both the humans and apes come from the space station where Mark Wahlberg's character was working.
However, what isn't answered is where the damn horses came from. There's no way they were on the space station, and even if they were, there wouldn't have been enough to breed a whole population.
Ocean's 11 (2001)This one has actually been acknowledged by the filmmakers, but it's still an interesting one to point out nonetheless.
At the end of Ocean's 11, we see that bags of fliers from earlier have somehow made their way into the safe. The only problem is, how did they get there?
The only team members who could have brought them in were Danny, Linus or Yen. The latter entered in a cash cart, so there was no way for him to bring them in, and Danny and Linus both came in through the elevator shaft.
How the hell those bags of fliers got in the safe is a bloody mystery, which is still frustrating for many people because it's a key point of the plot.
Independence DayHere we go. Perhaps the most famous plot hole of all-time....
So, we all know that in Independence Day, Earth is saved by our heroes uploading a virus to the alien mothership.
Great plan, but how are they able to get a human virus to work on an alien computer? Are you telling me that aliens use the exact same technology as us?
Sorry, but I'm not buying that one. I know about the whole deleted scene as well, but still, nothing can properly explain how this was possible.
Citizen KaneCitizen Kane is, arguably, one of the greatest films ever made. But that doesn't mean it's completely safe from plot holes.
As many of us know, most of the plot hinges on Kane's last word, "Rosebud." What puzzles us though is that Kane died alone, so who was there to hear him utter that final word?
Also, fun fact: when one of Orson Wells' friends pointed this out to him, the filmmaker replied, "You must never tell anyone about this."
Toy StoryLook, I hate to pick on Pixar and their near-perfect Toy Story franchise, but there's one thing that has plagued fans of Woody and Buzz for years.
In the original Toy Story, we learn that the toys are not allowed to let the humans know that they're alive, which makes sense. However, when Andy walks into the room, all of the toys freeze and play dead, including Buzz.
Though not exactly a plot hole, I, along with many others are still puzzled as to why Buzz would play dead if he thought that he was a real space ranger. If you recall, Buzz doesn't know that he's a toy, at least not initially. Yet, every time a human enters the room, he plays dead.
The Usual SuspectsWhile The Usual Suspects is known for having one of the greatest plot twists of all-time, it's also got a pretty major plot hole.
Keyser Soze is so worried about keeping his identity a secret and not showing his face, yet he sits in a police station for hours and doesn't think anything of it. Sure, he might have had a plan all along, but at the end of the film a fax comes through showing a photo of his face. If that fax had come through a few minutes earlier, before Soze had the chance to leave the building, he would have been completely screwed.
Why take the chance by hanging out at the police station for hours when he could have just escaped scot-free?
