Continuity mistake: When the suspects are in the garage after Saul, Saul drops a gun and Keaton kicks it over to McManus. However in the next shot McManus picks up a different type of gun.

Continuity mistake: Near the end, when Agent Kujan realizes who Soze is, he drops his coffee cup and it breaks in slo-mo. If you look closely, you can see that the bottom of the cup does not have the red writing on it. (I will not give away what the red writing is, as it may be a spoiler).

Continuity mistake: When McManus and Keaton are clearing out the boat, the time of day outside (as shown by the daylight) changes from shot to shot. It should be dark during the entire scene.

Other mistake: The burned guy who's supposed to be Hungarian keeps making bad language mistakes, although his pronunciation is great.

Verbal Kint: The greatest trick the Devil ever pulled was convincing the world he didn't exist.
