Continuity mistake: During the big fight scene at the end of the movie, both Nick and Sato become totally saturated and covered in mud.

After doing so, he's standing there a little ways away from the car. A henchmen throws him a shotgun with a modified handle. We see it land at his feet, with the trigger side facing the camera.

From the angle behind him,he lowers the blade and then in the corresponding front angle, he immediately lowers the blade again.
