Corrected entry: At the beginning of the movie the Coast Guard is preparing to board the hijacked boat. Two crew members run forward to man the gun and there is a front shot of the gunner running forward where he is wearing a full orange jacket. In the next shot, he is at the gun and he is wearing a sleeveless life preserver.
Corrected entry: In the scene where Jack Ryan meets Ernesto Escabedo, when Jack tells him to play the tape recorder, the play button is on the long side of the tape player. However, when they play the tape to Felix Cortez, and when Jack tricks him in the woodshed, the play button is on the top of the tape player.
Corrected entry: Later the convoy he is riding in goes down an alley and the Colombians begin blowing up the convoy vehicles. At least one more vehicle is blown up/and or disabled than were in the convoy.
Corrected entry: When the laser guided bomb is dropped on the cartel meeting the nose of the bomb is painted blue. This colour is used to designate a training or inert round. This weapon could not explode. (cf blue sidewinder missiles in TopGun)
