Corrected entry: When the white van is at the airport getting its tires shot out we can see that there is water coming out of the exhaust. Water only comes out of the exhaust the first couple of minutes after a completely cold car is started due to the condensation. Warm cars do not have water coming out of the exhaust, and since the van was driven all the way to the casino and then to the airport there shouldn't be any water.
Corrected entry: In the scene when the "swat team" have been sent in to stop the thieves with the money in the vault, they ask for the power to be cut. When this happens the lights go out, and the security monitor screens go black. But the "No Signal" message also appears on the screen. Meaning either the input to the monitors have been pulled out, or the cameras have been turned off. Security cameras would not be running on the same power as the lights in the area near a vault, and even if they were, the "No Signal" message still wouldn't appear as they would be connected to a computer.
Corrected entry: Shortly after the vault has been successfully robbed, George Clooney is beaten-up by Bruiser in a small room with two guards outside. Andy Garcia enters and George Clooney's face is badly bloodied and bruised. A few moments later they are talking to each other in the corridor outside and George's face has made a near total recovery. A few moments later still, George Clooney meets up with Julia Roberts at the entrance to the casino and his face has completed its miraculous healing. (01:41:58)
Corrected entry: When Yen is in the vault he uses the fake jewels (that Basher made) with another device to blow the door.Why doesn't he just bring the jewel device in the trolley with him like the other (silver) device? It would have much less risk because they knew that Benedict would check the case and possibly the jewels too.
Corrected entry: When George Clooney and Matt Damon first meet, George slides a ticket along the table, which Matt Damon subtly takes, leaving Mr. Clooney quite impressed. But before Matt takes it, George Clooney looks towards the bar, waves his hand, and is then amazed when the ticket's gone. Matt Damon had about 3 seconds to take it - anyone could grab it in that time.
Corrected entry: If the thieves are surprised/concerned when the security guard places the briefcase on top of the cart where their accomplice is hiding, why does the recording they made have the brief case in exactly the same place?
Corrected entry: During the "pinch" Cloony and Damon crack chemical light sticks to illuminate the elevator shaft. When this is done, the sticks are bent and only one side of the sticks are illuminated. However, in the next shot of the sticks hitting the ground, the sticks are straight and fully illuminated.
Corrected entry: In both the scenes where the robbers and the SWAT team absail down the elevator shaft, there is no elevator, as this would obviously prevent them from reaching the vault in the first place.
Corrected entry: In the scene when Matt Damon is at the bar in Chicago talking to George Clooney, Matt Damon takes off his eye glasses and puts them down on the table. The next shot George Clooney is asking for another drink with the plane ticket on the table. When you see the table, Matt Damon's glasses are not there, but when Matt Damon is holding the plane ticket in his hand the glasses are on the table.
Corrected entry: On the tape of the stage robbery, we clearly see three men in the vault, Yen, Linus and Danny. But up until Danny was "burned" there were only going to be two people in the vault - Yen and Danny. Linus was a last minute replacement for Danny (albeit pretend, we later find out). Regardless, there were only ever meant to be two people in the vault, as far as Linus knew, at least - he would have been a bit suspicious while filming the fake robbery with three people there.
Corrected entry: When George Clooney and Matt Damon are going down the elevator shaft, the laserbeams are turned off for a short amount of time. Both of their ropes are short and they have to cut them. Right when they drop from the ropes the laserbeams are turned back on. Wouldn't the ropes left dangling set off the alarms?
Corrected entry: When the pinch is activated and all the power is cut off in Las Vegas, how does George Clooney and Matt Damon use their pulley system to go down the elevator if the pulley system is also equipped with electronics, because you can obviously see the red lights turn on when the pulley is attached to the wall (electromagnets, presumably). So the pulley system shouldn't work, just like all the electronic equipment.
Corrected entry: Wouldn't Benedict or any of the security staff recognise the same people (the team as different characters) going around the casino all the time, e.g. the Utah twins as the balloon man and the guy he is arguing with, and at another point, the two of them as Mr. Zerga's bodyguards?
Corrected entry: Brad Pitt tells George Clooney that he can't be part of the operation. Why doesn't Matt Damon get curious about having two complete sets of cable equipment to go down the elevator laser beam shaft? He thought George Clooney was originally doing it solo, replaced by him, so would only expect one set.
