Best crime movie mistake pictures of 2007
Factual error: In a shot in Harlem, a Ford Econoline AVIS rental truck drives on the adjacent street. The specific Econoline van was at least a mid-90's to 2000+ model van and the movie takes place in the 70s.
Revealing mistake: When the Sergeant has the shotguns in the backpack on his back, and you see a close up of his face, you can see that the shotguns do not have triggers. On plastic prop rifles, the trigger is usually molded into the trigger guard in the pulled back position, and you can see this on these prop shotguns.

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Dakota is having sex with Aubrey's boyfriend, it specifically shows that her bra is off. Once they finish, and she is getting off of him, she is covering her chest with the sheet. When she does this, her side isn't covered and you can that she is now wearing a black bra.

Continuity mistake: When McClane is driving the police down the ramp to the tunnel so he can elude the helicopter, the car's windshield doesn't have any bullet holes or cracks in it, even though it did just a few seconds earlier.
Continuity mistake: When Ro eats the tub of ice cream, the way it faces and the amount in the tub continues to differ.
Continuity mistake: At the end of the film, Victor tells Nick to write 'hey Annie' on plane's wing to send her a message. When Nick throws the plane and the camera shows it flying around, the words that Nick wrote are nowhere to be seen.
Plot hole: In the scene where 47 swings out of the hotel window, we see the booby trap starting to explode as he's still in the room. Then in the shot from outside, the explosion extends out the window - so how on Earth did he outrun it and get out completely unscathed?
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.
