Factual error: Before the assault by the criminals, the marshal says that they are unlikely to make it to Cedar City faster than an hour in that rain. The movie though is apparently set between Michigan (most of the license plates are from there) and Ohio (the main character's car plate, plus you can actually see GPS coordinates 41°42'57.2"N 83°41'19.3"W, which puts them near Toledo). Driving from Michigan to Utah (where Cedar City is) is just short of driving coast to coast, certainly no-one hour affair either way. (00:06:20 - 00:07:05)

Continuity mistake: Talking for the first time with Eddie, Ruby says "I can use a bow": Antonio Banderas' hand goes from his chin to being firmly against the counter right at the cut. (00:41:30)

Continuity mistake: Looking at the food court from the security monitor, Johnny appears to have his left leg bent, but in the previous close-up of his dead body, the leg was straight. (00:54:10)

Continuity mistake: When the sniper mercy-kills the driver on fire, he falls in a spot on the asphalt completely different from where Cung Le's men later retrieve the corpse from. (00:38:45 - 00:40:00)

Continuity mistake: In the basement, Eddie gives Jamie a bottle of water and a pink walkie-talkie. They switch hands in the one shot from Katherine Mary de la Rocha's left. (00:34:40)

Continuity mistake: Eddie puts the fake fed in a leglock and shoots him in the head; the other fed to his right has his arm bent or straight up depending on the camera angle. (01:19:50)

Revealing mistake: When Banderas and co set ablaze the SUV dropping the flaming sofa on it, the man coming out of it is wearing a full fire retardant suit. (00:38:35)

Character mistake: When we see the relative positions Eddie and Johnny have, Eddie appears to be the one that should have done the signaling to the patrol car instead. (00:55:40)

Plot hole: Eddie's colleagues are getting slaughtered in a shooting where they are badly outnumbered and rushed by the villains, but when he meets the group of armed feds Eddie does not even try to make them provide support or rescue his friends; he right away contacts them to have Jamie reach him, at great risk (which is what gets Mason and Vance shot). Who would ever do that? You reach law enforcement and rather than tell them to save your friends, you call your friends asking them to sortie to join you and the group of trained and armed men who are doing nothing? The whole scene is wrong on multiple levels, including Eddie's late reaction.
