Chain Reaction

Factual error: In a radio news voice-over shortly before the first chase scene, the newsreader comments that "Calls have flooded in from all over the world regarding Dr Barkley's research." He then goes on to mention that the Royal Academy in England has expressed an interest. The "Royal Academy" is more formally the Royal Academy of Arts. They probably mean the Royal Society, which is the most important scientific institution in the UK.

Factual error: In the scene where Keanu Reeves breaks into a house (after the snowmobile chase) he kicks a door in. When any door is broken down in this way, the lock either breaks or is wrenched out of the door. However, when the door swings shut behind Reeves, there is an audible click as the latch closes again.

Audio problem: During the chase scene at the science museum, there is a shot where an FBI Agent reports on a disturbance there. If you watch closely, you can see where he originally said the "Smithsonian", and the audio was dubbed to say "science museum". (01:08:20)
