Suggested correction: I watched every shot of the truck closely and not once is it shown to have the window back intact after it's pulled out.

Character mistake: When Big Nick and his team are first discussing the theft of the armored truck early in the film, Nick is eating and turns to one of his partners and asks for him to give him the "Pepto", or pepto bismol. You can see in this shot the bottle of pepto bismol is already sitting on the desk next to the guy, but then the guy opens the drawer and mimes the movements acting like he's pulling it out and setting the bottle on the desk.

Visible crew/equipment: As the crew is leaving the salvage yard where the garbage trunk went, they are in a black SUV. In the shot of them leaving there is a close up of the corner of the bumper, and in it you can see the film crew and director's chair reflected in the bumper. And as they are pulling away it appears the film crew is also reflected in the tail gate of the SUV. (02:00:25)

Continuity mistake: When Big Nick kidnaps Donnie and they are questioning him at the motel, he sits in a chair and Big Nick walks past him setting a bottle of whiskey on the table next to Donnie. It's visible there most of the time, but after Big Nick slaps Donnie and says don't be a smart ass, in the next shot from behind the bottle disappears. (00:29:45)

Continuity mistake: After Ray asks Bosco where did Marcus take the rounds and then he responds, Bosco walks up to a table and throws down his gloves. It cuts back to Ray for a second then shows a shot of Enson saying "we knew the risks" In that shot Bosco is walking up to the table and throws his gloves down again. (00:08:35)

Continuity mistake: After the first shoot out, the thieves take the armored truck and drive off. The black sedan they have with them is driven behind them and is shot up pretty bad. As they exit the parking lot of the donuts shop, the red covers on the tail lights are missing/falling off. But both tail lights are seen on. A few shots later it's driving behind the truck and now it's left tail light is out with only the right one on. Then as a shot from in front of the truck pans past them the car drives by and you can see it's left tail light is not only on, but intact and has the red cover on it once more. Yet then as the car is pulling into the garage of the hide out, both tail lights are now shot out. (00:06:05 - 00:07:15)

Continuity mistake: At the start of the film, we see an armored truck driving around and as it's driving towards the screen on a street, there is no rain. It cuts to the a view from behind the drivers and still no rain, and the wipers aren't moving. It then cuts to two guys in the back for a couple seconds, then to an outside view again of the truck driving towards the camera on the same street but a little further along, and now it's raining and the windshield wipers are moving.

Factual error: The opening title sequence of the film states that LA is "The Bank Robbery Capital of the World", a title it was given in 1963 for a history of infamous bank heists. The titles state that the city has a bank robbery about every 48 minutes. However only in its worst year in 1992 did it even come close to this, with it having 1 robbery every 66 minutes - 2,641 robberies in a seven-county region. (00:00:55)
