The Score

Continuity mistake: When Norton gets the passwords for the new cameras at the park, there are three passwords. The first and the second have three digits, but the third password has four digits. But when Norton types the three passwords, the sound was for three passwords of three digits.

Continuity mistake: The first time Marlon Brando visits Robert DeNiro at his bar, DeNiro is drinking Scotch at the table. He takes a sip, yet in the next shot, the glass is totally full. Then, he doesn't drink again, but the next time you see the glass, it is half full.

Continuity mistake: At the part where Robert De Niro is checking out the basement from below in the pipes, he sticks a tiny camera up through a grid and looks around. Later on, when they actually do the robbery, he climbs out and the grid is totally different to the one earlier on.

Continuity mistake: When Norton is guiding DeNiro through the customs house with the radio from the car outside, he's in the passenger seat with the driver. When the driver pulls away to pick up DeNiro, the shot through the back window shows Norton is not in the car anymore. (00:44:00)

Continuity mistake: Near the end when Ed Norton's character changes and gets ready to leave with the gold staff, he puts the bag with the gold over his back first and then puts on his backpack. Later, when you see him running to the bus station, you see that the backpack is against his back and the bag with the gold staff is on top. This is also evident when he is talking to Robert DeNiro's character and he takes the bag with the gold off first.

Continuity mistake: Near the end of the film when the alarms are about to go off Norton points a gun at De Niro. He holds the gun with one hand, takes a step back and holds the gun with two hands, then in the next cut he's holding it with one hand again.

Continuity mistake: When the piano is being burned the scepter can be seen melting in the furnace. In all future shots the scepter is undamaged.

Audio problem: Nick uses the periscope camera through the grate of the basement floor. There is first a shot of the camera poking out and that is followed by a shot of a hand-held screen accompanied by a camera zoom sound as he zooms. Generally the zoom sound would come from the camera itself rather than the screen and a camera that size is not likely to make a electronic zoom sound of that amplitude. (00:43:20)

Question: Why does Norton lie and say that he "has company" and then make De Niro wait longer during the robbery? Sure, Norton double crosses him later, but wouldn't making his partner wait put both of them in danger of getting caught since it delays them and increases their chances of getting caught?

Answer: Norton already has an advance plan to prevent himself from getting caught. The delay is both to fluster DeNiro, and to prevent him from having enough time at the moment of the double-cross to come up with an alternate to handing over the prize without getting caught himself.
