Continuity mistake: The color of Lance's clothes change from a dark tan, brown, or grayish color on the train to blue walking through the train station and riding to Jack's place. Lance also has his jacket on the entire time - until he is at Jack's front door (where the jacket is no longer visible). Jack kept his coat on in the car, his apartment, and to play cards.

Revealing mistake: When the door is kicked in, it does not sound very loud or like a typical door smashing. An interior view shows the door is about half the width of a standard door and a 3-4' board can be seen falling vertically along the door frame/ wall (then disappears). Instead of hearing someone kicking open a door, the sound more accurately matches what happened: a thin door breaking through a board holding it closed! The "breaking in" scene also has some "stupidities." Stewart (without first trying to see if the door was not locked) uses a cordless drill on the door's lock and a second man then uses his right leg to kick it in (without first seeing if the drill unlocked the door). A third man brought a crowbar, which could have easily eliminated the need for someone to bring a drill or for one of the men to risk a foot/ leg injury by kicking open a door. (00:02:11)


Other mistake: Jack took Illinois licence plate "BL 91021" off a Subaru SUV to put on the group's truck and put "V 986394" on the Subaru. Illinois truck (< 8,000 pounds) plates have the letter "B" on the middle-right side of the plate. The "BL 91021" would have too many numbers to be valid. By putting a license plate starting with "V" on the SUV - without the letter "B" on the middle-right side - the SUV would not have a truck plate like it should (and would also have too many numbers to be valid). (00:22:49)


Factual error: TV reporters said "home invasions" and mentioned trying to find the people who were responsible for the "70 robberies." Lance (in prison), was talking to a woman who was going to write a book and told her he got "twelve years" for "fifteen counts of robbery and vandalism." The crime Lance and the rest of the group were committing fits the legal definition of "burglary" in Illinois (basically, entering an occupied structure with the intent to commit a felony or theft inside; the structure does not have to be occupied at the time of the act). Because there happened to be someone at home during their last (intended) "burglary", this offense would be classified as a "robbery."


Ellis: We're not just stealing. We're leaving a message. (00:20:03)
