Best crime movie mistakes of 2010
Factual error: In the very first shot of the movie, a clock is shown ticking. The time on the clock reads 05:59:56. It is obviously AM because a few seconds later at 06:00:00, Frank wakes up as if it was morning. As Frank sits up, clear daylight is visible outside of the window. This scene is supposed to be set during winter. We know this because there are many Christmas decorations. Since this is meant to be winter, it should still be dark at that time of day.
Factual error: In the scene when they are leaving the Pittsburgh Zoo, the sign indicates to turn right for Interstate 79. However Intestate 79 is about 15 miles to the west of the zoo. Also, it is suggested that Interstate 79 is the turnpike (a tolled road), when actually Interstate 76 is the turnpike and Interstate 79 is not tolled.
Factual error: In the chase scene where Lou is running after the derelict, they pass a number of vehicles parked and driving on the streets. All of them are correct period vehicles for the late 1950s, except for a white semi truck which is from at least the mid 1990s. The grille and headlights on the truck are the giveaway.
Continuity mistake: Towards the end of the movie, after Boyka gets out of the car with the briefcase, Turbo gets out after him and has a conversation. When Turbo goes back to the car, you see Boyka standing on the side of the road. There is only that one road in all the shots. In the next close up shot of the car door closing, and the car moving, we see the car getting out on to the road from a small by-lane (of sorts)! Where did this road come from? How did the car move places?
