Other mistake: At the prison, when Sean Archer (as Castor Troy) is talking to Pollux Troy to find out where the bomb is, Pollux hands him a cigarette. Never lighting the cigarette, in the next shot the cigarette is lit and he is smoking from it.

Other mistake: In the scene where Archer (as Troy) escapes with Ivan Dubov we see their tracking blips still moving on the tracking monitor after their tracking boots have been removed. (01:06:35)

Other mistake: When Archer (as Troy) and Dubov are fighting with the guards prior to Archer escaping, we see two guards looking at a computer screen which has several prisoners names registered on it, including Pollux Troy's name. Pollux has already been released from the prison by this stage, so his name should have been removed from the prison's computer system. (01:06:50)

Castor Troy: You'll be seeing a lot of changes around here. Papa's got a brand new bag.

Trivia: John Woo fought to keep the slash in the title, so moviegoers wouldn't think it was a film about hockey.

Question: How could they possibly remove Archer's bullet scar? If they could, wouldn't that just create a bigger scar?

Chosen answer: Surgical scar removal is a real thing, usually involving skin grafts or lasers. Keloid scarring is a result of the body aggressively attempting to heal/repair itself after trauma or injury (in this case, the gunshot). With proper surgical techniques, the body isn't traumatized to the point that deep scarring occurs. Of course, just like with the face surgery, the movie exaggerates the results of the scar removal.
