Continuity mistake: When Nicholas Cage is being escorted to fetch the roll of film from his car, there are a few scenes where the accountant is holding a gun to Nicholas's head. When the camera is directed at the accountant, two hands can be seen grasping the gun, but when the camera is facing Mr Cage, initially there are two hands but after the next switchback there only appears to be the one!

Continuity mistake: When Nick Cage picks his daughter up to stop her crying at the beginning of the movie, he rests her head on his right shoulder. But when he turns around to tell his wife that he loves her, her head is now resting on his left shoulder.

Continuity mistake: After Machine cuts Max's throat, Welles runs toward him and is thrown down by Machine. Then the shot cuts to Poole (Gandolfini) kicking Welles with Machine running up. Then a shot or two later when Machine and Poole are beating Welles it cuts and Poole is kicking Welles and Machine is not around.

Audio problem: Right after Max and Tom watch the two fake snuff films, Max mentions the record company's lack of interest. At one point his lip movements don't seem to match his words.

Other mistake: After Cage calls Gandolfini and tells him he knows about the murdered girl, Gandolfini uses the telephone. There are 13 beeps, then Cage replays it and there are 12. Telephone numbers even with the "1" and area code, only have 11 numbers.

Other mistake: In the scene where Max is all beaten up, Machine slashes his throat and you can clearly see that the knife's blade is dull, because there's no cut or blood.

Audio problem: When Machine's mom was telling him she'd really hope he'd go to church with her tonight, her mouth was saying something completely different.
