The Bourne Identity

Character mistake: The man in the morgue says in Yoruba "'I told you so, your head is not correct," not what they interpreted.

Factual error: At the start of the final scene where Jason is looking down at the scooter shop you can distinctly hear the calls of a Pacific bottle nose dolphin. This species of dolphin is not found anywhere in the Aegean or Mediterranean sea. Also from where Jason was standing you would not hear that type of call.

Bill Whitehead

Continuity mistake: As Bourne is running through the embassy, the red bank bag alternates multiple times between being over his right shoulder and his left.

Continuity mistake: During the car chase in Paris a cop's motorbike crashes against a car and he flips over it, flying meters away. A frame later he is simply landing a couple centimeters next to the car.

Audio problem: When The Professor is driving in the BMW, you can hear the transmission engage the next gear before he is seen completing the gear change. Shortly thereafter, you hear another gear change, but The Professor's hands are nowhere near the shifter (he's reading his orders on his cellphone).

Nicolette: He killed our man.
Conklin: What, in the apartment?
Nicolette: Yeah.
Conklin: Well, you got to clean that up.
Nicolette: No, I can't clean it up; there's a body in the streets.
Conklin: So?
Nicolette: There's police, this is Paris.
