Revealing mistake: Shortly after Sydney arrives at Pnom Penh he sits at a street cafe with Al Rockoff, the photographer. When a bomb explodes on the other side of the street they seem to be engulfed by flames, but when the camera cuts to the place where the bomb went off it's burning like a small log fire, and all people in between don't seem to be harmed by the fire ball in any way.

Continuity mistake: When the protagonists are trying to get to the French embassy they pass a VW beetle whose windshield is smashed by a Red Khmer. The camera angle is not very helpful but if you look closely you see that the window is gone already, and the pieces flying over the hood are from the bit of glass that sticks in the frame.

U.S. Consul: This thing has dragged on too long for it to end in all sweetness and light and after what the Khmer Rouge have been through I don't think they're going to be exactly affectionate toward westerners.
