The Equalizer

Continuity mistake: When the guy robs the cashier at the store where he works, the guy leaves the store and there is a car waiting by the curb. He gets into the passenger side and you see the car drive off. But when it shows the back view of the car as it is driving away, there is only the driver and no passenger.


Continuity mistake: When he visits his friend in the hospital, he passes room 6 in the first angle, which he hasn't yet passed in the second angle. (00:22:10)

Continuity mistake: After getting the barbed wire noose around the bad guy's neck, you see Robert push bags down to pull the bad guy up. When his friends find him strung up, the bags are gone. (01:47:15 - 01:48:10)

Factual error: In the big battle scene at the Home Mart store after Robert turns the power off to the building, you see Robert grabbing welding canisters. When Robert has Ralphie turn the power back on, it cuts to one of the bad guys in the break-room, and a digital microwave starts counting down. A digital microwave could not have any memory of any prior cook settings, let alone any way to set it, since the power was already out. (01:55:40 - 01:56:35)
