Factual error: The movie takes place in 1977. A boy tells his father he is playing PacMan, which came out in 1980. Then we see a cabinet of Ms. Pacman, which came out in 1982.
Character mistake: When Mike and the SAS team leader first meet, the team leader introduces himself as Will Davis, Captain. However at the near end when they say goodbye to each other, Mike addresses him as Lieutenant.
Revealing mistake: When Jerico is having his surgery the angle of the device that will be transmitting the memories is inconsistently angled in the real shot versus the monitor image.
Factual error: A few issues related to the portrayal of Texas state troopers in the film. Most obviously, the patch worn on their uniforms is an anachronism, as that style has not been used since the 1990s and the film is set in the present day. There are also some smaller issues related to their vehicles - for example, the graphics and lights are slightly different from the real things, and the license plate numbers are inconsistent with the style used for actual highway patrol vehicles.
Continuity mistake: When Kevin Hart spills his coffee on the ground off the scanner, the next shot the trash can is moved back and there is no spill.
Continuity mistake: In the beginning in his first fight Jack gets a wound on his right cheekbone which disappears in the next days.
Visible crew/equipment: In the beginning where Amanda Waller is talking in a restaurant. While the camera focuses on her towards the end of the scene, they move the camera right, facing towards her left side of her face. Watch the wine glass, you'll see the crew moving along with the camera.
