Tears of the Sun

Other mistake: When the Navy SEAL snipers start shooting at the ethnic cleansers, there are two snipers, the sniper that shoots second (he has an M-14) hits a Nigerian soldier in the back, they then go back to the sniper in the tree who tells Dr Kendrick to be quiet by. They then go back to the second sniper and he shoots again they show the same shot of the Nigerian getting hit in the back but from a different angle.

Continuity mistake: Towards the end of the film, Tom Skerritt is on the same aircraft carrier as the fighter jets, but right after the jets bomb the enemy soldiers, Tom Skerritt arrives in a helicopter. There is no way that a helicopter is just as fast as an F-18 fighter jet. (01:44:25)
