Man on Fire

Continuity mistake: When Creasy's friend Ray is sitting on the couch at the Agency for Federal Investigation and calls Creasy an artist of death, from a side shot he eats a piece of food, licks his fingers clean, and from the shot it is clear that he is holding nothing in his hand. However, on the next shot from the front, Ray is holding something in the same hand, points to it with the other hand, leans forward and throws it on a plate, then picks up a napkin and wipes off the fingers he had just licked clean in the shot before.

Continuity mistake: Within the first hour of the film in the scene where Creasy is driving Pita and her mom to school, the mom is seen sitting behind Creasy in some shots and sometimes there is no one behind Creasy when it changes camera angles. Then towards the end of the scene the mom appears behind Creasy once again.

Continuity mistake: As Creasy is crossing the street, searching for a site to use the RPG, he is followed by a couple, a blonde in a striped top, and a man in a leather jacket. The couple passes in front of Creasy in one close-up, passes behind him in a second, long shot, then passes in front of him again in the next close-up.

Continuity mistake: When Creasy is cutting off the fingers of Jorge Gonzales, the sunglasses resting on Gonzales's nose constantly changes from one shot to the next. In some they're halfway down his nose so you can see his eyes, in others they're pushed all the way up. (01:18:00 - 01:21:00)

Continuity mistake: When Pita asks her father to drop her piano lessons, her father hugs her. His hand, between shots, continually moves from resting on her head to on her shoulder.

Continuity mistake: When Creasy kills the first Judicial Policeman, the scene where he cuts the guys fingers off and then shoots him in the head, he pushes the car down a hill. The first angle is from Creasy's view, and the hill is all dirt. It then cuts to a second angle from the air, the hill is now all grass. When the car hits the school playground, it looks like it fell from the sky, with no hill around. (01:22:15)

Continuity mistake: After Creasy cuts off the first finger of the first man he kills, he is using the car cigarette lighter to stop the bleeding. When the shot changes to show him using the lighter, the man's finger is seen bent around the top of the steering wheel.

Continuity mistake: When Creasy is trying to get the number plate of the car following him, Pita is trying to write the number down as well. It can be seen that the last number (9) has been rubbed out. Creasy later finds the diary with the correct number in place.

Continuity mistake: When Creasy is searching Pita's room for her journal, her mother walks in and suddenly starts talking with a southern accent.


Continuity mistake: Near the start of the movie, when Lupita's father is talking in the restaurant, the flowers in front of him start off facing to the left, toward the other man at the table. However, after Mr. Ramos says that he is letting his bodyguard go, the flowers are facing to the right, toward him.
