Audio problem: When Wesley first walks into the textile factory and sees Sloane talking to a worker, the first shot of Sloane shows his mouth moving and you hear him talking. In the very next close up shot of Sloane, you still hear his voice, but his lips aren't moving. He just turns his head towards the worker, then away.
Audio problem: Right after Det. Corelli finds the limerick in her apartment, she pulls out her gun and there is a distinct sound of what's supposed to be her cocking the hammer on her pistol. However, Det. Corelli (along with all the other cops in the movie) uses a Glock semi-auto pistol, which does not have an external hammer that can be "cocked." The sound is added artificially, likely for dramatic effect. (01:06:30)
Audio problem: In the scene where James "forgot [his] gloves down there", the sound from the detonation just before that is incorrectly in sync with the explosion. Given that they are a distance away from the blast itself, what should happen is you see the blast first, then hear it say about a second or more later (based on the estimated distance). (00:48:50)
Audio problem: The day after Operation Mardonius, when the first set of bombs explodes you first see the explosion and then hear it after a second, then as the last bombs explode you both see and hear the sound at the same time.
