Continuity mistake: Bryan is cornered in an Istanbul alley and engages in fierce hand-to-hand combat with Albanian gangsters. Bryan takes one of the gangsters hostage, holds a gun to the gangster's face and threatens to kill him. Another gangster doesn't even hesitate to shoot Bryan's hostage in the back multiple times, and the guy drops down dead at Bryan's feet. Bryan is frozen on the spot. Camera cuts to another Albanian gangster entering the alley, holding Lenore hostage. Camera cuts to close up of Bryan, who quickly calls his daughter Kim to warn her. Camera cuts back to a full view of the alley, and the dead guy at Bryan's feet has completely vanished.Charles Austin Miller
Audio problem: In the scene where Jack Bondurant is loading jars into the back of the truck, Floyd Banner is driven into town and screeches to a halt nearby. Although the tyres screech which is characteristic of tyres stopping suddenly/losing traction on Tarmac or cement, the car is on a loose dirt road.
Other mistake: There is scene in which the assassin is mocking the young would-be suicide bomber and his friend for eating with knives and forks whilst he eats using his hand to pick up the food. However, he eats with his left hand which is absolutely forbidden under Islam. All Muslims eat with their right hands unless they are unable to eat with it (for example if they have a broken arm).JohnKazman
Continuity mistake: When Frank and Tony arrive at Fitz's house, they stand next to the speaker com awaiting Fitz' answer. Frank is wearing a blue shirt and it is relatively still with wrinkles and folds. But when Fitz answers the com and asks "who is it?", it cuts to a closer shot of Frank. Suddenly the wind is blowing his shirt quite hard. (00:02:20)Quantom X
Continuity mistake: Luke's motorcycle can't decide if it's a 2-stroke (in the circle cage), or a 4-stroke engine. It seems to be the high pitched wail of a 2-stroker when there's a chase, but has the mellow burble of a thumper when he starts it for his son. This changes back and forth at least 4 times.
Other mistake: When Mickey gets shot there is a close-up of the pistol.The empty shell casings coming out in slow motion are from blank rounds.
Continuity mistake: In the opening scene, Frank Harper is seen getting in to a dark blue 1997 R reg Jaguar driven by Craig Fairbrass. After driving for a bit and a conversation they exit the vehicle and set light to the car. As it starts to burn and they walk away, you can see that the car is now a dark green 1996 N reg Jaguar.Jelboy
Deliberate mistake: Nearly every night scene inside the house is lit by very bright lights shining in the windows from outside. Yet every time anyone is outside the house, it's still just as dark. There is no light source from which these lights could possibly originate.
Factual error: Kuklinski is looking at a newspaper which is dated January 3rd 1983, and the text reads that Roy DeMeo was found dead the previous day. In actuality, Roy DeMeo died on January 10th 1983. (01:22:55)
