Continuity mistake: When Will Smith first escapes the ambulance he runs down a tunnel. There is little or no traffic, but when when the agents are closing in on the truck with the power washer, it is jammed nose to tail. Where did all the traffic come from? It wasn't busy enough to create such a small bottle neck of a traffic jam.

Mistakes

When Will Smith checks into the hotel and his credit cards are invalid, we see that the time is 5:38 and it is daylight outside. The only problem with this is that it is supposed to be around December given all the Christmas decorations. It would be dark then in the Baltimore, not soaked with daylight.
