Goofs

In an early scene on the Andes mountainside, an U.N.C.L.E. agent stops near the top on the side of the mountain and takes refuse under an overhanging rock that creates a natural alcove to cover him as he uses his radio to report his status. When a helicopter circles above him, the camera point of view from the helicopter shows him sitting on the open field at the top of the mountain above that overhanging rock. A second later, after a rocket is launched from the helicopter at the agent, the next camera angle miraculously shows the agent now back at the alcove below the overhanging rock when the rocket strikes the ground. The strike causes an avalanche which buries the agent in the alcove on the mountainside, beneath the overhanging rock. See more »
