Corrected entry: When the two delta snipers are defending the second crash site, they sit the pilot down in a building right next to them. Several times it cuts to him sitting there defending their rear. Right after the first delta sniper is killed, it cuts to him again and he has the camo Car-15 in his lap. Following this, it cuts back to the downed chopper and the second delta sniper proceeds to take the camo Car-15 from his fallen comrade and bring it to the pilot covering his rear. The pilot shouldn't have the Car-15 in his lap when he does.
Corrected entry: During the scene when Chalk 4 is moving parallel to the crowd, and the .50 cal is waiting for them at the corner, they get pinned down. Shortly after that the Little Birds kill the .50 cal gunner. Right before that however, there is an above view of a helicopter that isn't seen at any time during the movie, neither a black hawk nor a little bird. From what I could tell it appeared to be a Huey.
Corrected entry: In the scene where Jamie dies from his femoral artery wound, the close up shot of his face after he is already dead reveals his artery in the neck still beating.
Corrected entry: The scene where a soldier is calling to his wife and the machine answers is impossible, because there is a time difference of about 9 or 10 hours between Somalia and USA, it should be dark and everybody sleeping. (00:29:40)
Corrected entry: In the scene where the rangers are trapped in the building across from the first crash the camera is looking down from an aerial view of a helicopter. This helicopter is not a Black Hawk, but a Huey. You can tell by its single engine, and the fact it has landing skids. Black Hawks use wheels for landing gear.
Corrected entry: In the scene where Blackburn is fast-roping out of the helicopter, SGT Evers initially is not wearing the goggles down over his eyes. In the shot after Blackburn falls and Evers leans over the edge of the helicopter, Evers is shown wearing his goggles down. In the next shot, he is wearing them up again. (00:43:23)
Corrected entry: When Dominique Pilla is shot in the Humvee, McKnight asks about his status by radio. The Delta guy (Hoot/Norm Gibson) reports that he is dead, from the front seat of the same Humvee. When they show McKnight again (he's at Bakara Market) hearing those words from the radio, in the background (between the trucks) the same Delta guy is telling something to another. A second ago he was sitting in that speeding Humvee, miles away from Bakara Market.
Corrected entry: In the scene where the SAW gunner and the M60 gunner in chalk four's original position notice the big convoy heading for the first crash, Twomley drops to reload his SAW, but when they switch shots, he is firing again and a SAW takes time to reload, you can't just slap a new magazine in, it takes a good solid 10-20 seconds but, again when they switch shots you see him drop to reload again and the SAW has a 200-round box magazine. (00:57:37)
Corrected entry: The Rangers are not wearing their Unit Patches (a scroll with battalion designation). This is required by all members of the unit as opposed to Ranger tabs which are only worn by soldiers who have graduated from Ranger School.
Corrected entry: This may also fall under Continuity error, but near the end we see a wounded Lorenzo Ruis laying in the hospital bed recuperating from his wound, but later we see him under the KIA list. This is true that he dies, but he was killed in the lost convoy and not in a hospital.
Corrected entry: At the beginning of the movie when the character played by Eric Bana is walking at the Bakara market, you can see there's a total number of four crew members behind him in the crowd (one is right behind him and three more a bit further). It's easy to spot these white men in a crowd where everyone's supposed to be black.
Corrected entry: When Dominick Pilla is impersonating Captain Steele in the hangar, Steele refers to him as 'Specialist' and he is wearing specialist's rank insignia on his collar. When he is later shot, Struecker twice refers to him as 'Sergeant Pilla' (which was his actual rank in real-life).
