Continuity: When the airline pilot enters first class to announce the baggage search, we see only 7 seated passengers and many empty seats. When the angle reverses, there are instantly 15 people seated, and almost no empty places.
Continuity: When Mundy and Claire are sitting in the car outside the apartment building, the rear view mirror has disappeared (probably removed to prevent it from obscuring the actors' faces). It mysteriously reappears later on.
Continuity: When Al leaves the casino floor to call Noah, he's smoking a cigarette. When he reaches into his jacket for the wallets he's just stolen, the cigarette disappears.
Revealing: During the crown jewel heist, Mundy is lowered through the ceiling on a trapeze. But the stunt double is apparent in long shots. He's taller and quite a bit more muscular than Mundy is.
Continuity: While he hangs from the ceiling over the jewels, Al's trapeze is spinning slowly. But when the shot cuts to a close-up, you can tell from the stationary background that the trapeze is now perfectly still. In the next full shot, though, it's spinning again.
Visible crew/equipment: When Colonel Parviz shoots at Mundy and breaks the mirror, the camera can be seen briefly in the glass, at the mirror's extreme right edge.
Continuity: Mundy lines up six golf balls and hits one, leaving five - until the shot reverses angles, anyway. Then there are only three golf balls left on the ground.
Revealing: Lori Chan picks Mundy up at the airport and proceeds to speed through town, spinning the steering wheel left, right and left again repeatedly. But the rear-screen projection behind them is showing footage from a car moving steadily in a straight line.
Factual error: Gino commits a murder using a six-shooter with a silencer attached, and his shot doesn't make any noise. But it should have. Though it's a long-standing Hollywood cliché, a revolver with a silencer wouldn't be silent at all. Unlike automatic weapons, revolvers are open-chambered, which allows sound to escape. They can't be muffled with a silencer.
Continuity: During his scuffle with Gino, Mundy's hair is messed up, then neatly combs itself, then is messy again, and so on several times between takes.
Continuity: At the party, Mundy is handed a cocktail that's blue in color. Next shot, when he starts to drink it, the cocktail has changed colors - from blue to amber.
Visible crew/equipment: The shiny black side of Noah's limo shows us a very nice reflection of several members of the camera crew.
Visible crew/equipment: While Mundy is tying up the unconscious Willie, the boom shadow is moving back and forth on the wall at the upper right of the screen.
Continuity: The professor translates the two Chinese symbols from Mundy's brass rubbing. Then he's shown a Chinese business card, and states that the 12 symbols on the card say the same thing. But not one of the symbols on the card matches the first two from the paper.
Audio problem: When Katrina walks out of the building at the end and crosses the street to Dover's car, the sound of her boots on the pavement doesn't match the actual movement of her feet at all.
Continuity: Mundy shoots a palace guard with a tranquilizer dart, and the man falls unconscious on the stairs. When his fellow guards find him moments later, the unconscious man has somehow moved off the stairs and is now lying in the corridor.
Plot hole: While Mundy is trying to disarm the briefcase bomb in the study, his time-sensitive work is interrupted no less than 6 times by people barging in from the party out front. The plot device adds comic relief, but there's no earthly reason why he couldn't have locked or barricaded the door in the first place.
Continuity: Ortega takes Mundy's shoes (with lock picks hidden in the heels) and locks him up. Mundy soon has the confiscated shoes back on again, though, even before he escapes the cell.
Continuity: In the opening scene, Mundy is tapping into a line by climbing a phone pole. He's starting back down when the shot cuts to a wider angle - at which point he's back at the top and starts down the pole all over again.
Factual error: Penny hides the stolen microdot on her contact lens, a re-hashed spy plot (used 5 years earlier on "The Man From U.N.C.L.E.") that wouldn't work. Any foreign object attached to your contact lens would feel like a shard of glass in your eye.
