Continuity mistake: When XXX arrives at Yorgi's mansion, there are girls in the water fountain out front. If you watch Yorgi's large bodyguard, the one that sports 5 or so earrings and a large beard, you will notice that he takes a girl out of the fountain. A split second later the shot changes onto XXX and in the background the large bodyguard is seen taking the same girl out of the fountain again. (00:54:55)

Continuity mistake: When Yelena and X are on the roof of the building he's staying at and Yelena tells him "Remember what I said, after you kissed me? Never again. I lied.", the shot just before he kisses her she is wearing bright red lipstick, but the next shot it's clearly gone. Likely to spare X from red lipstick all over his face.

Factual error: When Ahab is entering Prague on the river, an aerial shot shows it passing Palackého Square and the Slovanech Cloister, which would mean that it's coming from the South. Yet in the final approach to the bridge when XXX is riding it, it's coming in from the North, with the hill at Letenske Sady in the background. This is all a moot point anyway, since the Vltava river has at least 3 small, man-made falls along its path through Prague, complete with intricate and time-consuming lock systems for river traffic, so unless the Ahab could fly there was no way it could even get anywhere close to town.

5

Factual error: When XXX is taken to meet Samuel L. Jackson at the Opera in Prague he is driven to the front of the Rudolfinum Concert Hall, yet he meets Jackson at either the National Theatre or the State Opera House (it's definitely one of the two), which are across town. Also, the Rudolfinum doesn't produce operas, they are only a concert venue and have a big pipe organ behind their stage.

4

Factual error: When Xander is snowboarding in front of the avalanche he reaches up and grabs that bar to stop himself. At the speed he is supposed to be traveling he would have been unable to hold on with his mittens on and even if he could, his arms would have been ripped off.

5

Continuity mistake: In the opening scene at the rave, Yorgi instructs Kirill to shoot the man in the suit. In the initial shot of Yorgi telling him, Kirill puts the cigarette behind his ear. In the following shot, he puts it there again. (00:02:30)

4

Factual error: The name of the sub is AHAB, but it's written ANAB, the "H" in Russian looks like a "X." (01:39:30)

4

Factual error: Near the end when all the police cars (the ones with blue writing as opposed to green) show up at the castle, some of them are 'Mestska Policie' which means city police or district police in Czech. In Prague these policemen are only responsible for keeping the peace, ie handing out tickets, preventing bar fights, etc. They would not have been at such an important and dangerous raid. (01:34:50)

4

Visible crew/equipment: When X jumps the Senators Vette off the bridge, he uses a parked trailer to jump over the side. When the shot cuts to the angle from underneath the bridge, you can clearly see the ramp spanning both lanes of the bridge. (00:08:10)

3

Continuity mistake: When Xander is snowboarding down the mountain to take out the communications tower, he snowboards goofy (right foot in front) to regular (left foot in front) many times. That either means the stuntman is regular footed, or he would have to do a lot of 180's spins, which is impossible to do when there is a giant wave of snow chasing you.

2

Visible crew/equipment: During the battle in Colombia, Xander jumps over a fence and when he's seen landing, it is clearly a stunt double.

3

Continuity mistake: When Xander Cage is hung up by his arms in the barn, he is hit by a man with his left hand holding a large knife in his right hand. When the man hits him again it is with his right hand, which should have the knife still in it, but it doesn't. There is no camera shot of the knife at all when the man hits Cage with his right hand, so where did it go? (00:21:00)

3

Factual error: When agent Shaver shows Xander the bandage explosive for the first time he tells Xander to stand behind the wall then detonates the explosive while he is standing next to it. Agent shaver states that the explosive is powerful enough to blow a hole in a steel safe or vaporize a human. The explosive doesn't appear to be a shape charge, so the explosive force should have gone in all directions and hurt or killed agent Shaver. (00:45:35)

3

Plot hole: When Xander is driving onto the bridge, chased by the police cars, we see that there are police cars also blocking the end of the bridge to stop him getting away. How come none of them noticed the ruddy great ramp sitting alone in the middle of the bridge and moved it? It wouldn't take a genius to work out what he might do.

3

Continuity mistake: When Xander is in the Diner you can see his watch three times. It shows a different time the first time you can see it than the second and third time. (00:12:40)

1

Other mistake: After Xander escapes the avalanche by grabbing the pole, the avalanche is suddenly over. If it was that big of a avalanche it would have gone a lot farther.

2

Character mistake: When Asia Argento reveals that she is a Russian agent, she says that she works for the FSB, the Russian CIA. This is wrong, however, the Russian equivalent to the CIA is the SVR, the FSB is more like the FBI.

2

Revealing mistake: The reflection of X is not seen in Tony Hawk's sunglasses, just the bridge. (00:09:30)

2

Continuity mistake: When the Navigator is shot by the helicopters you see it fly up, but while the ugly dude is in it. But when Xander drives off it to get over the Cocaine shack you can obviously can tell that he is not in the car.

2

Continuity mistake: The first time you see Samuel L. Jackson, his eye on the burnt side is a real pale brown, but throughout the movie his eye changes to a normal brown and then light, then back to dark.

2

Toby Lee Shavers: I've always wanted to say this. Fire in the hole.

More trivia for XXX

Question: This is regarding the scene where Xander is telling Shaver he wants "All of that, in here" referring to a vast array of weapons to go into the GTO. Where/How in the world did Xander gain access to "all of that"?

Answer: Xander and Shaver were back at the compound where they first met. The one where Xander finds out that Shaver is responsible for making the gun and darts that were used to knock him out. In that scene Shaver shows Xander some of the cool stuff that he had made, and Xander uses a few items later in the movie.
