Continuity mistake: Towards the end of the film, during the bus scenes, all the hostages have their hands tied tightly together with their inner wrists facing each other. When the cables snap and Vinnie Jones and the oriental looking gentleman slide out of the back window, the oriental man somehow manages to hold onto the rail on the back of the bus for a few seconds with his hands apart.
Continuity mistake: In the beginning of the film when Axl Torvalds is in immigration, the male immigration officer holds Torvalds' German passport and compares the picture in it with Torvalds. In the following shot the female immigration officer finds another passport, again a German one, in Torvalds' luggage. She then proceeds to hand it over to the male immigration officer who compares the passports. But at this point one of the German passports has somehow turned into a Finnish one.
Continuity mistake: Immediately following the terrorists departure from the bank by bus, Don Cheadle enters a police black and white, license plate 999045. When he reaches the building on which the helicopter deposits the bus he gets out of a police car whose registration is now 873041A.

Continuity mistake: During the scene in the nightclub where John Travolta first tells Hugh Jackman to hack entry in 60 seconds instead of 60 minutes, Vinne Jones is holding a gun to Hugh's head. As the shot switches back & forth during the scene, you see Vinnie is holding the gun two handed in 1 shot, & single handed in the other. This is repeated a few times as the shot changes.
Continuity mistake: Just after Hugh drops off his daughter, a cop gets into the car. Hugh then reverses, hits Don's car damaging the passenger door and smashing the glass. Then they tumble down the cliff, but when Hugh slams into the car at the bottom of the cliff, the door and glass are intact.
Continuity mistake: At the beginning Gabriel and Stan leave the coffee shop. The high up shot (with the helicopter flying past it) shows them walking out into the road, with Gabriel almost at the middle of the road before the shot changes. Then there's a shot of his face then in the next shot from behind a police car they are just leaving the pavement area.
