Revealing mistake: The whole structure surrounding the elevator appears shiny and spotless, with the wires lacking a single spot of grease, revealing it's a set. (00:04:25)

Continuity mistake: In the shots before the bus blows up the Pacific Courier Freight plane, you can see that the vehicle towing it and the plane itself are no longer moving, as opposed to a couple of shots before this where the tow vehicle and plane are moving at a good pace. You also can no longer see the man who is supposed to be driving the tow vehicle (who might have run for it, but there's minimal time).

Continuity mistake: The bus hits a car and wrecks the driver's side indicator. Later on however, the indicator is fixed.

Plot hole: The police thought they could catch the bomber at the ransom drop because he did not know that the bus had exploded. However, the exploding bus would have created a huge plume of smoke that would have been reported by the media. (01:30:00)

Suggested correction: The news reporters at the airport had been blocked by the Police from reporting. Reporters that weren't at the airport would see a cloud of smoke but wouldn't know what was causing it.

Continuity mistake: As Jack's initial pursuit of the bus begins, you can see although both vehicles are supposed to be traveling north on the 110 freeway, the sun changes position during filming several times. Shining on all sides for several minutes. This lasts up until the moment that Jack boards the bus.

Continuity mistake: When Jack pulls the Jaguar alongside the bus and starts honking, Tuneman's right hand changes its position between shots. First he's got a grip on the vent window, but then all of a sudden his hand rests on the windshield's upper edge. (00:36:45)

Harry: Fuck you!
Howard Payne: Oh! In two hundred years we've gone from "I regret but I have one life to give for my country" to "Fuck you!"?
