Continuity mistake: Early in the film, Jack shoots Harry through the left thigh (taking the hostage out of the equation). At the police awards ceremony, Harry is using a cane on his right side and his limp favors his right leg. After the ceremony, in the bar, when Harry gets drunk and starts to leave, he's using his cane on the left side and his limp favors his left leg.Charles Austin Miller
Continuity mistake: In the film Jeff Douglas is out to kill the five leading kingpins of "the Hand". After he gets the first three, he goes after the last two who are hiding together. But the two fall out and one (Manter) shoots the other one (Kowalski) dead. Later, when he catches up with Manter, he doesn't kill him but lets him live to face justice (though he does die at the end). After catching Manter, he acts like it is the end of his "quest", yet does not know that Kowalski is already dead, and therefore should be out looking for him, not stopping at Manter's capture.
Continuity mistake: After Leon rescues Mathilda from the SWAT team and dodges the snipers, he shoots out a ventilation fan to make an escape route. He gets off two shots before we see the vent, but when it does we see about 7 bullet holes around the vent. Then the camera goes back to Leon as he continues firing. When the camera switches back, the holes around the vent are different. (01:27:05)
Continuity mistake: When Jack Ryan is in his office and hacks into Ritter's computer, he is trying to print out some files before Ritter deletes them. His printer fails to print, and after pulling out the paper drawer of his printer he discovers it is out of paper. Immediately, without closing the drawer, he quickly opens the door to the cabinet beneath the printer, grabs some paper, and the very next shot shows the printer paper drawer has mysteriously closed, so he has to pull it out again to add the paper.
Continuity mistake: Just before Axel uncovers the printing press, the woman puts the map in the oky dokey suit, not his shirt. When he gets out of the suit, he does not pick up the map piece. In the vent he pulls the map out of his pocket, but how did the map piece get from the elephant suit to his pocket without him picking the piece up?
Continuity mistake: When the crew of the Enterprise - D is in the Holodeck after Picard has left, Riker is telling Geordi to set royals at stunsail at which time Geordie is looking through a telescope with his right eye. In the next shot when he questions Riker, he takes the telescope down from his left eye. (00:24:05)
Continuity mistake: In the water tank sequence Cranston dives to the bullet holes to get air. When he dives down there is a camera shot looking up at him from the bottom of the tank showing that there is plenty of air left at the top, no doubt left there so that the actor would not drown. And; for the sealed tank to fill completely there must have been a way for air to escape rapidly from the top. When the tank was full water kept pouring in and would have escaped the same way. When Margo arrives there is no water coming off the top of the tank.
