Other mistake: Half way into the film when the neighbors are mowing their lawn in synchronization, if you look closely the nearest two of the electric lawn mowers are not actually plugged in. You can see extension cord plugs just dangling off of the handle bars.
Other mistake: A fast editing makes a double kick on the face all the more impressive not to mention impossible. Get the pause button ready. (01:08:00)
Other mistake: Where he comes to Jasper to work at the Double Deuce, he drives to the junkyard to buy new tyres and puts them in the trunk, stacked vertically. There is just one problem - there is no space for them. But who cares, he closes the trunk anyway.
Other mistake: As Roy meets his daughter, he gets out of his car and we see the car door left open as he runs towards her. Near the end of their conversation, the camera focuses on Roy, and through the space between his body and right arm, you can see the side view mirror indicating the door is now shut without anyone touching it. (00:26:50)
Other mistake: In the scene where Nico and the other agents are at the meat place, they are being fired upon by the drug dealers. In one shot we see a bad guy shoot a cop on a metal staircase. Look in front of him, and there is a round-like object on the staircase This object moves to the right between shots. (00:22:55)
Other mistake: During the scene where Phoenix is questioning the leader of the future society in his office, he says at least one word (hell) that he should have been fined for, and isn't. We see that there is a ticket printer in the room in a later scene, when Savage sets it off during his own confrontation. (01:06:50)
Other mistake: At the end just as Carter is about to be shot, he is facing the sea as he goes to throw his gun away. At this point the gunman fires and hits Carter square in the forehead. The position of the gunman is shown as being behind Carter and to his right (this is seen when the gunman lines up to take aim). Even though Carter leans back as he throws his gun away, he would have been hit somewhere on the right side of his head or temple at best.
Other mistake: When Orlando is driving the car (I believe the old beat up car) the gear shift is all the way up in the park position, yet the car is moving.
Other mistake: When the doctor friend of Denzel Washington tries to cover him by saying the cell-phone number is his, doesn't anyone just call him or check his phone to verify the number? No one would have any reason to suspect he's lying but this was supposed to be a major murder case and it would take only a moment to check it out.
Other mistake: At the billiard place in Bogota, just after Javier gives some money to Maria, pay attention to a couple of her shots: there is a horizontal line of dirt on the lens, that runs across the screen.
Other mistake: In the morning after scene, when the three men are sitting at the dining table by the pool with the baby, watch the extras milling about behind them. The same two people pass behind them twice from the same direction just moments apart. A little later a woman in a swimsuit walks by behind two of the characters. After a few more lines of dialogue, she is still walking by behind another of the characters.
