The Bourne Supremacy (2004)

38 mistakes

Continuity mistake: In the Moscow car chase, Bourne's car is hit from the driver's side by a patrol car. The driver's side window breaks. In the next few shots, you do not see any broken glass on Bourne. In the very next shot the car is not damaged on the driver's side.

Factual error: The scene where Nicky is picked up in Amsterdam is not in Amsterdam - the skyline does not match that of the city.

Continuity mistake: In the Moscow car chase, when Bourne's car is hit by a FSB Mercedes which had been hit by a truck, the whole exhaust section of his vehicle is seen collapsing to the ground. In the next shot, the exhaust section is perfect.

Continuity mistake: When the assassin is following Bourne in Moscow, he stops on a bridge and shoots at Bourne, a second later, when the Moscow police arrive to detain him, his car is not on the bridge anymore.

Revealing mistake: When the demonstration crowd is assembling in the plaza, there's a yellow tram entering on the left hand side. Watch as someone walks across the tracks in front of it and disappears through the corner of the cab. The shot must be a composite of the crowd amassing and the tram shot separately and then overlayed.

Continuity mistake: During the Moscow car chase, Bourne hits two barriers that slide through the intersection, one being on its side. In the next shot, the two barriers are gone and the cars at the light change as well.


Continuity mistake: The damage to the taxi in Moscow is constantly changing. Noticeably a massive spider crack in the windshield that disappears in the wide angles.

Continuity mistake: The blue Saab convertible belonging to the Berlin-based assassin is parked with all wheels on the road when the call-in team arrives in a silver 4x4. Shortly afterwards, the same car parked almost completely on the sidewalk when the assassin's house explodes.

Continuity mistake: In India when Bourne is running away from the assassin, every time the camera cuts to him we see him run past the same toy windmill stand. This happens three times.


Continuity mistake: When being pursued by the Russian agent in India, the girl is shot through the rear window of the vehicle. Yet when the vehicle is pulled out of the river, the rear glass is intact.

Factual error: After Jason escapes from the interrogation room at Naples airport, he uses a remote unlocking device to unlock a car. The car opening is an old E28 BMW 5 series which was never equipped with remote unlocking functionality.


Factual error: When Bourne is tapping into the phone of the American consulate investigator, the display of his Siemens cell phone shows Pamela Landy's phone number as an incoming call, giving him the option to reply or reject the call. But at this point, they have already been talking for a while.

Factual error: When Bourne drives from Naples to Berlin, he wakes up from a nightmare at Dreilinden, just outside of Berlin (easily recognizable by the bridge in the background). A few scenes later he is seen driving through an Alpine landscape which he should already have passed long before getting to Germany.

Factual error: When Bourne arrives in Moscow at Kievskii station, he goes to check the address of the dead Russian reformer's daughter, looking in a phone booth yellow pages. There are no phone books, much less yellow pages, in Moscow phone booths.

Continuity mistake: When Bourne pushes Ward's head to the table and says, "I told you people to leave us alone.", you can see Ward's glasses. Two shots later his glasses suddenly disappear.


Continuity mistake: In the chase scene toward the end, both Bourne's and the assassin's vehicles are racing down a tunnel. Both of them run several cars off the road while passing them, which should block traffic behind them. Instead, in one long shot of the tunnel, a ton of moving cars can still be seen directly behind them in the tunnel as if traffic was completely normal. Furthermore, even if there was room to drive around the obstructions, nobody thinks it's a good idea to back off from two cars smashing into things?

Visible crew/equipment: At the beginning of the film, the top of a crew member's head is reflected in the mirror of the bathroom cabinet as Jason closes it.


Continuity mistake: When Bourne is being chased by the assassin, he leans his seat back all the way in order to switch seats with Marie. After they switch, in the next shot of Marie the seat is back up and she has a seatbelt on. There was no time to do either of those, much less both.


Other mistake: When Bourne is looking up the address of Hotel Brecker on the website, the street is spelled Kurt├╝rstendamm. It should read Kurf├╝rstendamm with an F. The English translation of this famous street's name is "causeway of the electoral princes"
