Corrected entry: When the trainees are shown breaking into the bug house, Zack is shown installing a bug and is then trapped in the toilet by the sliding door. Later in the same sequence, James and Zack are trapped in the corridor and Zack is pinned to the wall, while James dives through the window. Surely the trainees would have only had one attempt at planting the bugs and not be let free to try again?
Corrected entry: In the movie Burke states that none of the computers has a floppy disk drive so that no information can be copied and smuggled out, but Leila uses a USB device. With all their technology and computer scientists, the CIA, or anyone who is semi-computer knowledgable should know that information can be copied through the USB port.
Corrected entry: After Clayton gives Burke's name the door to the class opens. Clayton uses the other door to stand, but you can see the door moves when he uses it to prop himself up as if it was never locked (either that or the interrogators are really stupid for leaving the door unlocked).
Corrected entry: Why would the CIA be interested enough in Clayton to have Layla mark him in the first place? According to Burke CTs that wash out of the farm are hired to other positions in the CIA anyway. If it's surprising to find Clayton there, they should have enough common sense to find out who hired him (Burke) so they shouldn't be surprised later to find out that Burke was the traitor.Joel Gordon
Corrected entry: In the scene where Clayton is following Layla in the taxi (after their night together) they are supposed to be coming from Georgetown and going to Union Station. In one shot out the window they are headed from Washington Circle towards Georgetown - not away from it. You would not get to Union Station by going that way.
Corrected entry: When Farrell is being held in the metal cell by the supposed bad guys we see him throwing the food about and banging on the door with his hands untied. In the following shot when he is removed from the cell his hands are now tied tightly.
Corrected entry: In the scene when Clayton got out of the car and Burke is telling him that he's become a NOC there's a clear view of microphone under Clayton's blue t-shirt.
Corrected entry: At the very end, Burke is exposed as a traitor and shot to death after he raises his gun. When the shooting team surrounds the body, one of the members is carrying a Heckler & Koch G36 with no magazine in it.
Corrected entry: If Burke's goal in the movie is to obtain the secret computer program, and sell it for 3 million...WHY does he need Clayton again? Why would he need to involve him unnecessarily? He could merely have Layla sneak out the data as an "assignment" like she thought and then he'd be done.John Manso
Corrected entry: Just an overlooked point: In the seen where Al Pacino orders a martini from Colin Farrell at the bar, all Pacino asks for is a martini, and Farrell makes it. Any bartender worth anything knows that martinis come in two distinct varieties: Vodka or Gin. You could also note that he didn't request shaken/stirred or a garnish (olives/twist), but no matter what, the least that should be asked is Vodka or Gin, and a good bartender should know that. And the CIA looks for recruits with an attention to details?
Corrected entry: When Farrell's character is taking a taxi to the hotel after being washed out, the taxi is seen pulling up to the hotel entrance with its roof light lit. As the cab is still occupied/hired, the roof light (designed to indicate availability-for-hire) should not be on.
Corrected entry: In the scene when James is in the tank, first scene his hands are tied together. Then when he gets his "food" rations, he throws it, then bangs on the walls, obviously his hands aren't tied. Next shot when they take him out for a cold shower, his hands are tied again.
Corrected entry: When Clayton enters the pin code to give him access to the area in which Layla's office is, we see a star appear every time Clayton presses a button, and also hear a beep. In the next shot (a closeup of the LCD screen) we see 4 stars. However, there were 5 beeps.
