Mission Impossible 2 - An Expanding Building?
The whole IMF plan is to drop Hunt through the roof to the gene laboratory. It's not on the ground floor (Ambrose and his men take an elevator up to the lab from the ground floor), but it's pretty definitely deep down (about 40 stories) from the top. But the end of the lab sequence Hunt blows out a wall, and dives out from a pretty considerable height...apparently at least as high as the helicopter was when he jumped, and high enough to use a low-altitude descent parachute.

From the diagram of the building in the movie, the lab is about halfway up the Biocyte building. I believe it's mentioned twice that the lab is on the 42nd floor. That would fit the height of the drop through the hole in the wall, and it would make the building probably between 70 and 90 stories. A tall building, yes, but I don't see the slip-up here.

Compare the shots from when Hunt jumps from the helicopter, and then when he jumps from the lab later. The shot of the city height-wise is the same, or close enough as to make no never-mind.

I live in Sydney and I pass by that building in the city almost every day... I'd say the building is no more than 40 floors at the most, so he seems to drop a very long way in the building, almost down past the basement, yet when he dives out the building it's as if he's on at least the 30th floor! The actual shaft bungee jump was filmed inside a green screen studio and I think John Woo would have known that having him dive through a long shaft would have created this problem, but I think it makes the whole Biocyte infiltration look a lot cooler, even if it doesn't make sense ;)
