Visible crew/equipment: In the scene near to the end of the film, the seal team are in the Mercedes being chased by the armoured vehicle. There is a shot when the Mercedes squeezes between two parked cars. In the next shot, the armoured vehicle then jumps both cars, however you can see the ramps that are used to allow it to jump the cars. (01:36:30)

Mr Manchester

Factual error: One of the men asks to be dropped off at a nearby hotel as they drive down Waterside Drive in Norfolk and the next next camera shot shows him getting out on Atlantic Avenue in Virginia Beach, 20 miles away.


Revealing mistake: We see Hawkins carrying Curran when the building is blown up behind him. During the slow motion section of this scene it's clear that Hawkins is being played by a stunt double as his face and haircut are different to Charlie Sheen's.


Continuity mistake: In the opening scenes, when LTJG Hawkins jumps out of LT Curran's Jeep, Curran backs up to the point where Hawkins went over the edge of the bridge. The Jeep has a broken RH (passenger side) taillight. When the same vehicle is leaving the wedding a short time later the taillight is fixed. Also, Curran throws Hawkin's red jacket out after him into the water, the jacket is dry when he arrives at the church. (00:06:30 - 00:08:45)

Factual error: At the beginning when the 2 men are spying over Abu Ahmed Al-Kuwaiti, they are in Peshawar, Pakistan. But, actually if we take a look at the styles of taxis and rickshaws and also their number plates, all of them had the word "MH" before it, which states that the vehicle has been registered in the state of Maharashtra, India and not anywhere in Pakistan. They have shown the wrong place with the wrong name.

Revealing mistake: When Charlie Sheen is driving his car in reverse, just before he spins the car around, you can see the skid marks from the stunt practice runs on the asphalt in the exact location where the stunt is performed.


Hawkins: For God's sake, be careful out there.
Ramos: If I were going to be careful, I'd have joined the Coast Guard.
