Big Trouble

Continuity mistake: On the airplane, when Eliot pushes the suitcase down the stairs, Snake grabs hold of it with his left hand and while holding the gun in his right hand with his right wrist around the stair bar. In one shot the gun is gone and he's gripping the stair bar with his right hand, then the gun reappears again. (01:13:23)

Factual error: On the first murder atempt on Arthur, when the assassin shoots, a bullet hole shows up in the door, and then the bullet goes through. It should in fact be the other way-with the bullet passing and then the hole appearing.

Continuity mistake: When Matt phones Eliot about borrowing the Geo and in following shots, the objects on the windowsill behind Eliot change position. (00:04:00)
