Continuity mistake: When Kit gets all the survivors onto the top of the cars, out of the water to keep them "high and dry", Ashley's parents are standing on top of a car next to each other. In one particular shot there's a large distance between them, but in the previous shot they're next to each other.
Continuity mistake: When the black criminal dies from an injury caused by the huge explosion at the mid river passage, Kit is leaning against the front bumper of a burnt out car, but a few shots later when the camera cuts to a wider angle, the car has vanished and all we see is the old man, Kit and the criminal on the floor with no car, but in the following shot the car reappears again. This has nothing to do with camera angles.

Continuity mistake: When we see Madelyne for the first time, she is in her apartment and gets a drink. She then goes to sit down next to her computer, she switches on her lamp and puts something down on the table. In the following shot it looks like she reaches for something with her right arm over her computer, but this was not seen in the previous shot.
Continuity mistake: When Nord is in the mid river passage on the cellphone, and it cuts to a large object, the large object is sitting on something, which is seen, but when one of its chains breaks loose from the wall, nothing is holding it at the bottom when it begins to swing.
Continuity mistake: When Roy Nord is about to go into the mid river passage, a girl is taping him on her digital camcorder. In the first shot her hand is gripping the camcorder's screen and bottom with one finger next to the LCD display, but in the following shot all of her fingers are at the bottom of the camcorder.
Factual error: In the beginning of the movie, the explosion in the Holland Tunnel is caused when a car crashes into the trucks carrying toxic waste barrels. In real life, it is against the law for vehicles carrying hazardous chemicals to use any of the tunnels. Even if the drivers didn't know this, which is highly unlikely, they would have been pulled over by the Port Authority cops as soon as they headed for the entrance - lots of yellow barrels would be a bit suspicious.
Continuity mistake: When Kit rushes to a table and scrambles everything off it to pick up a large object to stop the fan, the timer in the background says 28 seconds. But when Kit walks up to the big fan to slow it down we see the timer again and it says 19 seconds, but only two or three seconds have passed since we last saw the timer so it should be at about 24 or 25.
Continuity mistake: When the tunnel caves in as a result of the explosion, the cars about to enter it come to a stop in almost a straight line. When Stallone gets out of his limo, the cars are now scattered everywhere. Then, when he goes back later to the collapsed entrance, the cars are not only in different positions, but some have changed in make and model as well.
Factual error: Even if the survivors were in their vehicles, a raging inferno like that would seriously damage their skin. Even if a vehicle can protect you from being set on fire, I think the chances of being skin burned and blistered are especially high. First of all, the prison bus had those open diamond holes on the side of the bus. Also, I believe someone's car window was open, so they should have been set on fire.
