The first is a man in a black coat, red scarf and holding a green glow stick, standing to the right of shot. The second is a woman in glasses standing beside the man.

Plot hole: Prior to the final show, when the horsemen are performing separately at different locations in London. [Scene X] Jack is busy with his card swap trick. While others are doing their tricks too, [Scene Y] McKinney is believed to be tricked once again by his face sharing brother at another location... Dylan gets a call and then he calls everyone to wrap up and meet somewhere. [Scene Z] Jack also wraps up and leaves the place... OK. Later after the expose in final show McKinney tells the story about how Jack successfully hypnotized his brother [in the Scene Y]. How could Jack be at two different locations at the same time? He was performing somewhere else when he did hypnotism at another location and then wraps up his trick back where he started.

Factual error: The movie shows the FBI operating in London in order to capture the Horsemen. The FBI does not have jurisdiction to operate outside the United States, although they can act with agencies in other countries.

Casual Person

Continuity mistake: When Dylan is leaving the prison with Thaddeus, it is night time. But later on in the movie, when the FBI director and Agent Cowan are watching the CCTV footage of Dylan and Thaddeus leaving the prison, the time on the CCTV shows them leaving the prison at 14:10, the middle of the day.

Casual Person

Factual error: When Lula is performing her dove tricks in London she's standing by Cutty Sark, a historical ship museum in Greenwich. Greenwich is south of Thames river.

Factual error: When it's 00:00 on January 1st, it's not night in Sydney, it's 11 AM. When they 'reveal' stuff at the end of the movie, and they show that things happen exactly at 00:00 in the night in London, it can't possibly be dark in Sydney, Australia.

oddbeck

Factual error: After his show Atlas reveals he did his rain trick using rain machines and strobe lights. While this is technically correct it only makes the rain appear to stop, not prevent it from falling. But during his show when the rain is "stopped" we see no splashes on the ground or on people who put down their umbrellas.

Milan Korenica

Revealing mistake: When Dylan is looking at the news articles in Thaddeus' cell, the camera pans over to one of the articles with the headline, "I am a victim": Thaddeus Bradley. The opening paragraphs on the first column are repeated throughout the entire article.

In the close-up shot, when the tarot card is first shown, it can be seen slightly passing over the edges of the iPad, but in the shot previously, Dylan is opening the iPad, but the tarot card is nowhere in sight. It would have been visible even from the camera angle that was shown. (00:22:45)

Continuity mistake: Jack is shown wearing a security guard uniform throughout the entire infiltration of the launch party. When the party has been intercepted and Jack is exposed to everyone, he is still shown wearing the security guard uniform, but when the Horsemen are on the roof minutes later, Jack is suddenly back to wearing his leather jacket and T-shirt. Even if this is needed for the story and some time had passed between scenes for him to change, Jack was being chased by the FBI and was in a hurry to escape the building, so he would not have had anytime to change back, nor would he have risked wasting any time changing his clothes anyway.

Casual Person

Continuity mistake: When Daniel is communicating with "The Eye", he walks over to a well and places his phone down around the rim of it. The phone is beside the edge of one of the blocks covering the rim, to its left. When Walter is explaining to Daniel later on in the movie that he was the voice, the scene cuts to a flashback, and Daniel is now shown placing the phone beside the right hand side of the edge of the block. (00:06:05 - 01:10:55)

Casual Person

Continuity mistake: When Walter is explaining to Daniel he was the voice he heard earlier in the movie, he mentions that he put his phone on a by-wave syphon pad, the scene flashes back to when Daniel was communicating with the voice and it is discovered there was a device planted inside the well, shown behind a grid. When Daniel visited this place earlier on in the movie, the grid inside the well was visible, but there was no sight of the device inside the grid. (00:06:05 - 01:11:00)

Casual Person

Continuity mistake: When Agent Cowan is asking the FBI director what happened, she says that they are gone and tells the man beside to come with her.

Casual Person

Character mistake: Dylan is showing Agent Cowan and the FBI director the pictures of the pigeons and Dylan and Cowan start arguing, while the FBI director continues to look at the evidence on the Four Horsemen. Whilst looking there is an article reading "FBI Investigation Stalls." On the first column of the article, it is mentioned that all four members of the Four Horsemen, J. Daniel Atlas, Henley Reeves, Merritt McKinney and Jack Wilder, all disappeared into thin air at the final magic show, and gave the audience fake dollar bills. By the time of the final magic show, Jack had faked his death and was presumed dead, so only three members of the Horsemen were present, not four. (00:08:55)

Continuity mistake: When Daniel is trying to take the OCTA CCTV guard's ID pass, he takes a picture of him with a Polaroid camera so that he can stick it onto a tag to prove that he is from a mental hospital. When the picture prints out from the camera, all that is shown is shown is the image of the guard against a white background, instead of the wall seen behind him. Also, when Daniel takes the picture, the guard has his head turned to the right to face Daniel, but when the picture prints, the guard has his head positioned completely forwards. (00:17:40)

Continuity mistake: When Atlas walks in to the Octa phone launch disguised as a waiter he has a silver tray. Someone rearranges something on it as he walks down the corridor and it is plainly a silver tray. He walks through after the rearrangement and the next shot there is a briefcase visible under the tray. The tray is supposed to be a tray that becomes a briefcase but is too thin to do that. When first seen there is no space for the briefcase part to be closed up against the tray. (00:16:55)

Now You See Me 2 mistake picture

Continuity mistake: When Walter Mabry is explaining how the Horsemen ended up in Macau he walks over to sit on the couch to show the slideshow of the plane trip. As he walks over, Atlas is not on the same couch as the other Horsemen, but when Walter goes to sit down he squeezes between all of the Horsemen with Atlas now on the end of the same couch as everyone else.

After Walter says they just need to inspect and steal it, the entirety of the left side of the bow tie is now entirely obscured by the jacket. Walter then says back home they are wanted criminals and suddenly, part of the left hand side bow tie is suddenly sticking out from the jacket again. (00:38:45)
