Other mistake: Snake is taken to the sports arena. We see a man in a basketball court racing a timer to score hoops. He fails miserably and is riddled by dozens of gunmen stationed all around the court. The crossfire would have killed more than just the unlucky basketballer. (00:56:05)Phillip Churchfield
Continuity mistake: When Snake and the rest of the group are escaping in the helicopter; a rope is tied to left side of the helicopter. Carjack shoots and breaks the rope but in the immediately following shot, the part of the rope that should still be attached to the helicopter is gone. (01:25:05)
Factual error: In the future it is possible to travel from Griffith Park to central Orange County (around 50 miles) via unpowered hang glider in only 10 or 20 minutes, according to Snake's countdown timer. This would mean the hang glider would need to be traveling somewhere between 150 and 300 miles per hour.MoonMan
Factual error: When Snake crashes the chopper in the final scene, it is going down nose-first, and just the nose hits the ground. The explosion area would be (approximately) 10 sq. feet and expanding outward from that spot. But the initial explosion is down the whole length of the chopper with the grass exploding into fireballs. (01:27:20)DavidRTurner
Other mistake: When the President asks someone to connect him to the White House to talk to his warn his wife as Cuerva threatens the power outage, an extra hands him the phone, but does nothing to contact the White House (OK, someone off-screen could be doing it, but the President was talking directly to this extra). A mere 3 seconds later, he is asking the (White House) operator to connect to his wife. Just 1 second after that, she's on the line. (00:53:25)DavidRTurner
Other mistake: When Snake lands in LA in the sub, it shoots out of the water, lands on a concrete pier, and hits a wall at a very high speed. Its future technology must be why it doesn't crumple up like a tin can; but Snake exits the sub just fine, despite there being no apparent safety harness. As this is just a decade or so in the future (and not a century or more), it is highly unlikely that this society's technology has advanced to a state where the basic laws of physics can be broken.

Continuity mistake: Snake jumps off the surf and into the car with Eddie. They fight as the car drives down an alley. There is an old man in front of them at one point, who steps out of the way of the car. They continue driving perhaps a block and stop. They speak for a moment, then Snake continues driving, past the same old man, and past some of the same parts of the alley they just passed. (01:09:00 - 01:09:35)DavidRTurner
