Continuity mistake: The first time Ethan apprehends the green car for possession, the person in the passenger seat is a woman in all exterior shots. From the interior it's always a man.

Continuity mistake: When the crew are raiding Roger's house, they approach the door and the handle is on the left. One guy kicks open the door - from inside the house the door swings open the opposite way. (01:03:30)

Continuity mistake: After Ethan and Denzel get away from the shoot-out near Sandman's house, they pull onto the side of the highway, under an overpass. The close up shots of the actors show sunlight on their faces. Wide shots of them have them in the shadow of the overpass.

Continuity mistake: In the bar scene, Stan has a long stray hair on his left eyebrow. The backdrop is the window and it's easily visible. A few moments later the stray hair is gone.

Erin Dawson-Feraco

Trivia: The scene at the start of the movie where Ethan meets Denzel in the diner - it is the same diner that is used in the movie "Seven," where Morgan Freeman meets with Gwyneth Paltrow. If you watch these two scenes, you can see exactly the same camera angles (i.e. the cook cracking eggs onto the hot stove).

Question: What exactly is Alonzo asking the three wise men for at the restaurant? Do they give him the go ahead to steal from and kill Roger? And more importantly are the three wise men corrupt cops like Alonzo?
