Clear And Present Danger

Other mistake: The first plane to explode has a very neat symmetrical blast originating from underneath the plane - which is in fact wrong given that only one charge was placed on the side of the plane. The plane would be badly damaged and probably jack knife through the side of the hangar instead.

Other mistake: In Colombia, a heavily camouflaged soldier goes into a hangar and places a bomb on it and rushes out before it explodes. On his way out, he passes another soldier who is lying as close to the ground as possible. In front of this soldier is a line of fine wire, right in front of his face. The only thing I can think of for that wire being there is as a marker for the actor.

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.
