Fridge / The Shadow
Shiwan stole Genghis' coffin and probably threw his remains out somewhere.
- In one of the podcast reviews of the movie, I've heard another example of Fridge Brilliance: in the chinese restaurant scene Shiwan Khan wears a nice suit, very similar to Shadow's. That's because Shiwan Khan, being the Ying-Ko fanboy he is, tries to mimic him. And another moment: in the same scene bullets shot by Shadow and Shiwan Khan hit each other. Ruleof Cool? Not only. They were trying to scan each other's minds, that's why their bullets ended up hitting each other.
When Dr. Reinhardt Lane is disarming the bomb, he mistakenly pulls the red wire. However, it works for one very good reason. He's color-blind, so the WRONG wire is RIGHT.
If Bronzium is believed to be a legend, how does Dr. Tam know exactly how to test for it, what it is capable of, and what would be needed to build an atomic bomb with it? Not only that, how would either Dr. Lane or Dr. Tam know anything about building an atomic bomb twenty years before Einstein worked out the theoretical framework explaining why/how it would work?
Why was the inscription of Genghis Khan's coffin written in Latin? His empire never reached most of the nations where Latin was considered an important language. Shouldn't the inscription have been in Mongolian?
