Continuity mistake: When Spartan and Phoenix are fighting in the sewers, Edgar Friendly shoots his gun at Phoenix and you see the catwalk that Phoenix was on tip to its side and Phoenix dropping down to the ground with the plank of the catwalk right below him.

Other mistake: During the scene where Phoenix is questioning the leader of the future society in his office, he says at least one word (hell) that he should have been fined for, and isn't.
