Continuity mistake: When the killer is using the R/C car bomb to follow Harry and his partner; as the R/C car approaches Harry's stopped car, it starts to swerve to the left, as if to go around. However, in the next shot, the R/C car is perfectly straight again, and lined up to go under Harry's car.
