Collateral Damage

Factual error: In the paramilitary roadblock scene, you can see the license plates of several vehicles, and these plates are not Colombian. In all other scenes, the overall appearence of the license plates match actual Colombian ones.

Factual error: After the terrorists on the motorcycle take off, Gordon uses a fire axe to puncture the natural gas line. The natural gas (which was under pressure) would have quickly filled the tunnel. Now when the motorbike drives through it, the engine should have revved high with a combustible gas being taken in in place of oxygen. It would be like using nitrous on a hot rod. But you can hear the RPM's stay normal for a motorcycle.

Continuity mistake: During the film's climax, in which the Wolf's wife Serena is on the run, CIA agent Peter Brandt tries to ambush her in an elevator. As he runs up to the elevator, we get a wide shot of him, the people waiting for the elevator, and the up/down indicator lights of the elevator. The down indicator is lit. (The shot pans down from the indicator lights as he runs up.) Cut to Elias briefly, then back to the elevator indicators. This time, neither light is on.
