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.Roadrunner
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)
Continuity mistake: When Jack Ryan is in his office and hacks into Ritter's computer, he is trying to print out some files before Ritter deletes them. His printer fails to print, and after pulling out the paper drawer of his printer he discovers it is out of paper. Immediately, without closing the drawer, he quickly opens the door to the cabinet beneath the printer, grabs some paper, and the very next shot shows the printer paper drawer has mysteriously closed, so he has to pull it out again to add the paper.
Felix Cortez: What would you say if I promised you that I would reduce the cocaine shipments to your country by half?
James Cutter: I'd say you were using too much of your own product.
