Corrected entry: After the ambush, Reno and De Niro set off in the Mercedes. As they do a reverse hand brake turn, you see a sunroof on the car. In the next overhead shot, there is no sunroof. A couple of shots later De Niro pops up again out of the sunroof with the bazooka.
Corrected entry: During the shooting in the Arles amphitheater, when one of the Russians shots a man, you can see a drop of blood hitting the camera lens.
Corrected entry: The fourth shot after De Niro and Reno run over the ice at the ice rink, is a shot of the panicking crowd. The camera pans and we see a soundgirl with a shotgun microphone pointing it at the crowd. Than we see a 35mm camera on a steadicam filming the crowd. The operator of the camera that is filming all this notices it and starts to pan faster, but you can hardly miss the white camera body and the green illuminating steadicam monitor.
Corrected entry: During the gun purchase, the seller says that his boss wants to check the money and that the rest of the guns are in the other car. Spence then asks Vincent for some of the money, but the seller never takes it from him, he just starts walking into the tunnel. When Spence and Vincent enter the tunnel, the seller tells them to stop, confers with his boss, and tells them that everything is good. He never had the money to check.
Corrected entry: When Gregor escapes from Sam in the coliseum he jumps over a rail just as Sam fires a shot at him. The bullet misses, but there is no impact on the huge wall directly behind Gregor.
Corrected entry: When the chase between the 5 Series BMW and the Peugeot 406 starts, they both whip around a roundabout. In the background is a gun metal grey Rover 800 Hatchback. Couple of shots later as the two cars are absolutely speeding along the river, the same Rover 800 is now ahead of them in the traffic.
Corrected entry: When Spence checks the armaments they are going to buy, he states "it's not all here". They have a gunfight and return to base. No-one makes any comment that they need to obtain the missing armaments.
Corrected entry: In the coliseum Sam is wounded by a Teflon bullet that pierces his armoured vest. A Teflon bullet is pointed to aid penetration and only has a thin coating of Teflon on it. Ricocheting off the wall would disrupt both of these penetration aids and make it most unlikely that the bullet would penetrate the vest.
Corrected entry: in the coloseum when the Irish guy fires his gun, the bullet ricochets and hits De Niro. After this he sees that the bullet has been upgraded with teflon (for piercing bullet-proof vests). But how can the armour piercing bullet ricochet from a sand/chalk building block? The bullet should have gone into the wall.
Corrected entry: After Gregor steals the case, Sam and the others hole up in a flat to treat Larry's wound, during this scene the idea that they can trace Gregor through his cellphone is put forward. Vincent asks Sam if that is possible, but isn't that how they tracked the case in the first place (through the bald guy's cellphone).
Corrected entry: In the beginning of the movie, when the weapon deal is taking place in the centre of Paris, Robert de Niro and company are waiting in an Audi S8. The head lights are not burning, but when a shot is shown from the inside of the car, you can see that the dashboard lights are on. This can only be so if the head lights are also lit.
