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. (01:01:10)

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. (01:21:55)

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! (01:20:50)

Question: How, exactly, does Max die? When Machine rips the tape off his mouth, does he fall forward onto a blade of some type?

Answer: Machine first rips off the tape then slits his throat with a knife he had hidden. If you put the movie in slow play, you will see what I mean.
