The Hitman's Bodyguard

Continuity mistake: The amount of damage to the car Kincaid is driving changes drastically between shots. Most noticeable right after he kills the motorcycle driver he does a jump and the hood and headlights break off. It cuts to the others running through the streets for a few seconds, then cuts back to him as he passes under a bridge - the front of the car is almost completely repaired as he is under the bridge, then changes back to damaged after he leaves. (01:30:45)

Continuity mistake: After they break into the old Mercedes by smashing the driver's window, in the scene when they are singing in the car the glass is there, shown by fingerprints. (00:40:00)

Continuity mistake: The 2 main characters are on a roof running from the police. Samuel L Jackson's hands are handcuffed together from a bit earlier on in the film. He jumps off the roof into a bin on the floor but bounces off scaffolding on the way down, there are 2 short but clear shots of his arms wide apart with no chain between the cuffs as he's falling. He lands in the bin and proceeds to get up and out with his hands back cuffed. (00:33:00 - 00:34:00)

John Poole

Other mistake: The airport assassination of Japanese dealer is claimed to be at 300 metres by Kincaid, but the camera shot shows the distance to be at least a mile.

Factual error: Dutch police cars don't look like they do in the movie, with their blue and white checkerboard pattern. They had blue and orange diagonal stripes on the side. In this movie, they look much closer to what British police cars look like.

Revealing mistake: When Dukhovish lands on the car, the (CGI) smashing of said car is incorrectly timed with the impact.

Plot hole: In the end Kincaid had to provide evidence against Dukhovich in court to uphold his end of the legally binding agreement from the beginning of the movie. Kincaid directs the courts to a secure website and provides a password to access the site which provides all the evidence needed. Kincaid could've provide that information via phone call or teleconference and never left his jail cell, negating all the unnecessary risk to law enforcement officials and himself.

Continuity mistake: When Mr. Kurosawa gets shot in the plane, the ropes on the left of Bryan are standing until a body guard knocks them down. As they cut to another shot, the ropes are back up. (00:02:55)

Factual error: There is no Dover-to-Amsterdam ferry service. Such a ferry would quickly cross the English Channel and then sail northeast along the coasts of France, Belgium and the Netherlands (passing The Hague on the way).

Plot hole: If there really was such a high-profile case where a witness went missing during transport after a terrorist attack, there is no way the trial wouldn't have been suspended until that witness turned up, be it dead or alive.

Factual error: Obviously Duhovic is supposed to come from Serbia or Bosnia where all the real war crimes took place. Instead Belarus and its flag are mentioned and seen through the whole movie.

Suggested correction: Duhovic was the former president of Belarus. He's not from Serbia or Bosnia, nor is he suppose to be. However, this is a fictitious movie wherein the character has committed a number of crimes and not a movie about actual war crimes.

Though the movie is fictitious, the plot refers to the Hague tribunal over war crimes committed in the former Yugoslavia (Serbia, Bosnia). Duhovic is a Serbian name like Milosevic, not a Belarusian name. There has never been a former president of Belarus, its president is still active. Too many discrepancies even for a fictitious movie.
