In Captain America : Civil War, in the first present day scene, the one with Rumlow when the fight breaks out, Captain America says:

I make 7 hostiles.

Then Falcon flies in and takes down 3, leaving 4 but he says:

I make 5

I noticed it the first time I watched it, but this time around, I made sure I didn't miss anything.

So what is going on?

Then falcon flies in and takes down 3

Actually, he lands on 2 and kicks them down...but my interpretation is that one of them got back up. There's no indication there were 3 separate bad guys...although the action is fast-paced.

So, there were only TWO in the first place.

In any case, Cap was wrong...there were at least ELEVEN hostiles (including Rumlow).

  • I thought that Cap had already subtracted the ones he put down.
