Audio problem: When the first assassin runs out of bullets shortly after coming through the apartment window, his gun makes a series of rapid clicks as if dry firing full-auto, but real guns, even full-auto ones, don't keep on clicking when empty. It should either make a single click, or a nearly inaudible one. (00:44:16)
Factual error: At the Zurich bank scene Jason's Russian passport is shown. The name is Foma Kiniaev as it is written in Latin letters. But the Cyrillic text isn't the same, it actually doesn't mean anything. The transcript is something like "LSTSFUM ASF". The place of birth is written as "Moscou" which is the French spelling of the name of the city. The passport is bilingual, Russian/English, so it'd be MOCKBA/MOSCOW. (00:17:11)
Continuity mistake: When Wombosi is shot, the bullets come through the bottom of the window which has bars. From the outside, we are shown that the shots go into the top of the window, and there are no bars on it. There are also curtains and fabric which disappear.
Visible crew/equipment: When Bourne is escaping from the Embassy and standing on the fire escape ledge, the safety cable for the later climbing scenes is clearly visible on the ledge around the corner to the right. (00:22:35)
Factual error: When Matt Damon enters the station, the clock reads 2:30. On the board inside the station, the timetable shows some trains leaving at 5pm. In this busy train station in Paris, it would be impossible to list 2+ hours of departures. It is usually only about 1 hour at that time of the day.
Revealing mistake: When Jason climbs onto the rail of the fire escape, it is not attached to the wall - intentionally, it has not broken - but then in another shot, two seconds later, it 'breaks'. It pulls out of a visible hole in the wall, although it was never actually attached and there was no hole before. (00:23:25)
Continuity mistake: In the farmhouse scene Bourne looks out a window and it is bright outside. When he looks out the glass in the door and it is dark outside. When Bourne goes outside it is bright again.
Factual error: After the scene where Bourne is returning to his hotel to find the police surrounding it he smashes a police car window to take a "wanted" poster from the front seat. This poster is titled "Gesucht" which is German. Requests for assistance from another police force would not simply be a matter of faxing a wanted poster to the nearest police station over the border. The request would be given to a national body who would then have translated the request to French before distribution.
Continuity mistake: When Jason enters the train station to stash the red bag, the large clock on the outside of the station reads exactly 12 noon. Once he's inside the station the clock reads after two. (00:48:37)
Continuity mistake: In the scene where Jason and Marie go to Jason's residence in Paris, Jason picks up a Bic Pen to write while he's talking on the phone to the hotel. He takes the cap off and places it on the back of the pen. In the next shot, the cap is missing from the back of the pen. (00:39:15)
Continuity mistake: During the car chase there is a shot of Bourne steering frantically. In the centre of the steering wheel is a Mini badge. Cut back a few moments later and the badge has changed to a Cooper badge. (00:51:15 - 00:52:05)
Continuity mistake: At the beginning of the car chase, the red car has a burnt out leftside tail light. For the remainder of the chase, it's working. (00:52:57)
Factual error: The laser pointer and the subtitle reads "Gemeinschaft Bank". That's wrong. It has to be Gemeinschaftsbank. (00:04:20)
Revealing mistake: There is no snow at all on any surface higher than the second floor of the consulate, except for the sill Bourne is climbing on, and the fire escape.
Continuity mistake: When Jason is climbing down the side of the embassy, there is a car in the snow. When the camera cuts directly to him, then back to the aerial view, the car is gone, there are no tracks and it isn't snowing hard enough to cover the tracks.
Continuity mistake: When Bourne is escaping the embassy, he has to scale down a wall below a broken fire escape. As he is inching his way to his right, towards the corner, the shot changes to one from below, and he is suddenly about six feet lower than he was the moment before (there is a curved pipe jutting out of the wall that allows you to easily judge his actual position.)
