Continuity mistake: In the railway station where 47 is being followed by the FSB, Interpol and the older agent, you see the older agent running down the ramp to platform 9 after 47. His jacket is flying up in the back, and there is no weapon visible. When he stops running, he reaches behind him into the waistband and produces a handgun with a silencer.
Continuity mistake: First day in class, when Hoager "beeps" at Jesse, Mrs. Myers writes two words. The word "verb" is over the word "subject" on the board, in the close-up. After she turns around, in the following shots, the word "predicate" appears, disappears, then reappears and "subject" is written over "verb" now. Additionally, during this scene, all the other writing on the blackboard changes between shots as well. (00:06:15)
Continuity mistake: Near the end, when Lucy tries to get into the building, she is blocked by police officers holding clubs straight ahead in front of them. The scene cuts to a roof shot, then back again, and Lucy tries again, but the clubs are missing, the cops just have their hands out in front of them.
Continuity mistake: The "Power Play" scene when Eric and Hanssen are in the car after a cancelled meeting (13). With Eric's line, "There's construction on E Street," the Kennedy Center appears behind his head, but in the next shot of him ("Sir, I'm SSG.,") the Kennedy Center shows up again, this time farther ahead of the car. (01:05:55)
Continuity mistake: During the complete car-bomb chase sequence towards the end of the film, Michael Clayton's car is shown in one shot without its lights on. All the surrounding shots in the scene have both cars with their lights on. This is also a slightly revealing error because it shows that they actually filmed these sequences during the day using neutral density filters. (01:41:15)
Continuity mistake: During the very last scene, where everyone follows Bull into the pool, Ashley is one of the people who jump in after Bobby. However, after she has jumped in, the next shot is of her and Erik on the side, after which she jumps in again.
Continuity mistake: As Mike scrolls through the microfilm, we see his view as the pages scroll from right to left. The shot then reverses to show his face through the scrolling film, but while the film is now properly reversed, it's still moving right to left in our view. But this reversed angle should show it moving left to right. (00:12:05)
Continuity mistake: In the scene where Randy is playing table tennis on the stage at the restaurant, just after he has finished hitting the ball blindfolded and says, "Thank you", you can see a man in the background getting up. The shot then switches to the boy with the man in the background still sitting. The shot then switches back to Randy and the man is getting up again.
Continuity mistake: In the beginning, after Michael kills his sisters boyfriend, he puts the mask on with bloody hands yet he gets no blood on the mask.
Continuity mistake: The whole time Dan is in the bookstore and outside talking to Marie, he is wearing a blue undershirt. However on his way home from the bookstore, he runs a stop sign. When the cop comes up behind him you can see that his undershirt is now grey. When he gets home and walks through the door, his shirt has gone back to blue. So Dan's shirt changes a few times when everything is supposed to be in the same sequence of time and events.
