Factual error: The priest says that St. John saw the number 666 in his vision, but it was actually 999 inverted. I'm not sure, but I don't believe St. John read modern Arabic numerals like we do. Didn't he read Roman numerals? I think if St. John saw the number 666, it would actually be DCLXVI. (01:05:40)
Continuity mistake: In the scene were Arnold disconnects the carriages of the train, near the end, he has to jump across the gap. When we first see the gap it is a certain distance, the camera angle changes and it's a bigger gap, then the angle changes and it's closer, there is no way Arnold could have jumped that big gap. (01:42:35)
Continuity mistake: Just when Jericho catches the priest jumping off the rooftop with Jericho hanging from the helicopter. in the next shot, his partner yells, "He's Got Him!" When the shot goes back to Jericho, he's hanging from the line with no priest in his hands. The next shot shows him hanging from the helicopter, holding on to the priest. (00:20:25)
Continuity mistake: When Satan enters the church demanding to know where Christine York is, one of the priests approaches him with a crucifix. The camera is facing the priest, Satan grabs the crucifix and stabs the priest right in the centre of his forehead (just above the eyebrow line). The camera angle changes to facing Satan and when the priest hits the deck, the crucifix is sticking out of his head higher up and above his left eyebrow. (01:22:30)
Continuity mistake: At the beginning of the movie, when Arnold and the Stryker Security crew are protecting the man in the limo, pay attention to the crowd. Right when they arrive at the building, and begin to get out the vehicles the pedestrians begin to duck and run for no apparent reason. Especially noticeable in the shot, right before Arnold says "We're exposed". (00:16:30)
Continuity mistake: In the train sequence near the end as Arnold shoots Satan out of the train, he flies toward the other carriage and starts to fall short, then in the next shot he lands ass first in the train. (01:43:10)
Continuity mistake: When Satan shows Arnold the bandits who killed his family, Arnold tries to catch one of them, falls through the bandit, toppling the Christmas tree. But when Satan changes the flat back to normal (with no tree) we can see the tree standing upright as it disappears. (01:12:20)
Continuity mistake: After the baby is born, the nurse puts a blue towel on her, completely covering her chest. The next shot, the baby's chest isn't covered. (00:06:00)
Continuity mistake: When Satan gets out of the car and turns up his collar, he has no gloves on his hands, but in the next shot as he is still turning up his collar, his hands are already gloved. (00:16:55)
Factual error: Arnold's wife and daughter are shot once each. There should not be blood on all four walls of the room.
