Dubai's car plates nr in the film was totally wrong, the real format is Letter and after numbers like H 12345 but in the film was different , first numbers and after the letter like 12345 H .

This is the original , you should check the film again then and you will get is what was wrong

Come on Imre, I know how Dubai plates are, the previous ones and the ones before them too, so on which cars did you see the wrong number plates? Certanly not the Jeep they were using.

Almost all plate numbers were wrong in the film or maybe because I seen in IMAX and got a mirror pics ?

We know that the interior of Burj Khalifa is something different, but i believe those interior scenes are taken place on Burj Khalifa, not somewhere else...
Perhaps in empty floors?

I saw it on IMAX too. Are you sure you aren't talking about the cars on the party reception, that supposedly were in India?

The Dubai number plates were definitely wrong - as Imre says, numbers followed by a letter.

The other blooper that everyone seems to have missed is that when there's a close-up of the iPhone screen when they're in Dubai, it has AT&T as the operator logo

Here we ara again


Anachronisms
The server in the Burj Khalifa is a Dell Poweredge 2650. Dell discontinued this product in 2004, so it wouldn't be found in a tower which was constructed between 2004 to 2010.

When Tom Cruise is being ordered to the Kremlin via phone, a billboard near the call booth has a poster announcing a "The Organ" concert. That band broke up in 2006, but the the story of "Ghost Protocol" takes place after the opening of the Burj Khalifa, which was in 2010.

Continuity
When Hunt and his team are in the Hotel at Burj Khalifa, they see the sandstorm approaching from the front of the building yet when Hunt and Wistrom exit out front, the storm hits the building from the back.

Wistrom & Hunt's car crash happens on an elevated bend of an overpass yet they are shown on a ground-level open freeway seconds later.


During the scaling scene, Ethan Hunt takes the right glove off because it stops working and lets it go, leaving his hand bare. However, in the next few scenes, the glove is back on.


Errors in geography
Tom Cruise and Crew are in Mumbai (the languages in Mumbai are Hindi & Marathi), but in the action scenes, the displayed language is in Kannada (which is a language in Karnataka, another state).

Factual errors
The number plates used on the cars in the movie in Mumbai and Dubai have the numbers first and the letter last. Actually, the number plates in Mumbai and Dubai have the letter first.

Ethan Hunt and his team checks in into 130th floor of Burj Khalifa Hotel. However, Armani Hotel in Burj Khalifa occupies below 40th floor. 130th, 118th and 119th (occupied by Sabine Moreau Lea Saydoux and Wisdrom) are Commercial floors.

Number plates in Mumbai start with MH - indicating the state of Maharashtra, where Mumbai is located. The plates shown in the movie do not start with a number.

In the climax sequence, at the multilevel car park in India, all the cars are left-hand drive but in India cars are right-hand drive, like in Britain.

Ballistic missiles do not fire their rockets after they reach their highest point, hence "Ballistic", they also are targeted much higher than the (apparent) ground-level burst in apparently intended in the film.

Revealing mistakes
The Nuclear Launch Device used by Hendricks has a Russian keyboard, however the User Interface Screen is in English.

The real hotel inside the Burj Khalifa is the Armani Hotel, whose entrance is much, much smaller and not as impressive as in the movie, which is actually the commercial area concourse.

When at the party, Ethan is having a phone conversation with Jane. In one of the shots, Ethan is talking into his cell phone; however, no cell phone is visible in his hand.

Plot holes

In the opening sequence, an IMF agent lands on an air mattress. Later in the movie it is revealed that the plan went awry and the agent was forced to flee and jumped off the roof in desperation. Thus the air mattress would not have been set up.

I suspect that pic is photoshopped... Just casually sitting on top of the ledge of the spire 2800+ feet in the air, barefoot, with no visible helmets or harnesses... I think not... But the mere idea of it is enough to make me feel a little queasy...

On a side note, I took this photo when I was living in Abu Dhabi last year...

The idea of being up in that spire is just a bit too much for me...

WRONG: The air matress was incorporated on the back of his jacket. He clearly activates it just as he is about to jump.
