The Specialist

Other mistake: In one of the first scenes where Sylvester Stallone is sitting astride James Woods and pummeling him with his fists. His last blow is from his left hand and it goes over the head of Woods - a visible miss. Yet Wood's head jerks to the side.

Factual error: In the first few minutes, right before the explosion of the car with the little girl, Stallone is running like mad to disarm the bombs (on the pillars of the bridge). However, he isn't fast enough, and the last bomb explodes. The trick is that the bombs are just chunks of TNT, planted about eyeheight, but when the bomb explodes, the flames and stuff go upwards (not reaching/hurting Stallone, who is about 3 meters up and at the exact height of the last bomb).
