Character mistake: During the opening raid of the FSB safe house, an operator is seen taking hard drives out of a safe.

Character mistake: When George throws one of the soldiers through the cockpit door of the plane, you get a brief glimpse at the pilot and co-pilot, both of which are wearing a Bose headphone/mic set. However the co-pilot has his one backwards, with the mic bent from the right side when it's meant to be on the left. (00:44:50)Quantom X
Character mistake: As the other cops get to Mike and Steve, the lady cop stands and starts shooting at the mercs with her assault rifle, which appears to be an M16 variant. It is obvious the actress playing the cop has no idea how to actually hold a weapon, as it's resting right up against her cheek with the butt of the rifle barely against her shoulder at all, and she has her eye right up against the sights where it would slam her in the eye with recoil.

Character mistake: Zoe states that Lilly's condition is very contagious and will spread through the camp if they don't go out and get the proper medical supplies they need. She puts Lilly in quarantine... and then proceeds to visit Lilly with no protective equipment. No mask, and even touches Lilly with her bare hands before going back out to the rest of the people.

Character mistake: After Wade is going over the second clue in his mind and trying to figure out what part of Halliday's past is he trying to escape from, he looks over the wall of article clippings and notes he has hung up. When the camera stops on Karen Underwood's obituary, there is a hand written note beside it listing movies set in New York, with the sentence "Set in New York" underlined. This apparently him looking for clues in films set there for the race challenge that is in Manhattan. However, one of the films he has written on that list is Mad Max, which takes place in Australia, not New York. (00:35:00)Quantom X
Character mistake: When Big Nick and his team are first discussing the theft of the armored truck early in the film, Nick is eating and turns to one of his partners and asks for him to give him the "Pepto", or pepto bismol. You can see in this shot the bottle of pepto bismol is already sitting on the desk next to the guy, but then the guy opens the drawer and mimes the movements acting like he's pulling it out and setting the bottle on the desk.

Character mistake: Dave's wife refers to McCall as his "Army buddy" - but the pictures in McCall's house on the shore show him to be a Marine. Not a generalisation a Marine would make.
