Continuity mistake: After the helicopter attack where Toni and Robert are killed, the Russian helicopters land about forty feet apart, the officers get out and walk to meet each other at the halfway point. For the rest of the scene, they are right next to one of the helicopters. (01:38:30)

Continuity mistake: After the pilot's funeral, Matt walks through some grass to talk to Jed. In all of the previous shots and most of those after, there is snow on the ground because it's January. In this particular shot however, there is no snow, not even on the mountains behind them.
