Continuity mistake: When Lucille throws the pills to Marv, he catches it with his left hand (while holding a cigarette in his right hand). The shot changes immediately to a close up on the pills in Marv's right hand. Then in the next shot Marv takes the pills, but has to take the cigarette out of his mouth first.
Factual error: When Marv is talking with the Priest in the confessional, he cocks the hammer of his pistol as a means of interrogation. But in the next shot, the pistol is uncocked, without sufficient time for this to occur. In fact, the pistol is uncocked even when Marv shoots him. This cannot happen, since his pistol is a standard 1911 .45, which requires the hammer to be cocked in order to fire.
Revealing mistake: When Miho plugs the barrel, Jackie boy tries to fire, but when he does, the slide fires into his skull area. Notice that the barrel is larger in front. If that slide was straight, then o.k. But, the head of the barrel is larger at the far end (business end). It is not possible for the larger end to pass through the rest of the gun (focus on the bottom part) without every part of the gun disintegrating.
Continuity mistake: After Jackie has sat down on the swastika-formed throwing weapon, he is shown crawling on the ground. The swastika is then shown sticking out of his buttock in a horizontal position to his thigh. When he is leaning against the trash can, the swastika is shown again, but this time it sticks out pointing downwards (in relation to his thigh), at a 90 degree angle from it's original position. The points on the blade would have kept it from twisting in the wound, and Jackie did no movements that would cause it to twist.
Continuity mistake: When Yellow Bastard is giving his "Recognize my voice?" speech, whilst pinning Hartigan's face to the floor with his foot, you can tell from his eye line in the first shot that he is a fair distance from Hartigan, nowhere near close enough to have his foot pressed into his face. Yet in the next shot, the foot is in frame, pressing Hartigan's face, as though Yellow Bastard is standing right next to him.
Continuity mistake: When Marv jumps off the top floor of the hotel and grabs onto a rail and then jumps over it to dodge the bullets, if you watch closely, when he lands you can see that the shot is actually made out of two separate shots blended together. Watch carefully as he leans forward after the land, he's closer to the camera in the second shot and his movement is not perfectly synced to the previous one.
Continuity mistake: In the scene where Michael Clarke Duncan has Rosario Dawson tied to the chair, in one shot her left earring is tied next to her neck with the rope holding her to the chair, but in the next shot, the earring is hanging free. The shape of the earring prevents it from simply being pulled from the rope because of how rigid it is.
Continuity mistake: When Dwight and Gail are talking just before the attack on Jackie-Boy, the wind is either blowing strongly enough to move her earrings, or not blowing at all, depending on the shot. The changes correspond precisely with the shot changes - it's not just random gusting.
Continuity mistake: When Jackie Boy is picking up his gun after having his hand cut off, all the carnage and blood that occurred behind him (Miho slicing up his buddies) almost entirely disappears. The only sign of it happening is the body of the decapitated man in one shot. Then everything seems to disappear for several minutes.
Audio problem: When Dwight deduces that there is a spy among the girls in Old Town, there is a noticeable shift in the audio when he says "But first we gotta get our hands on Jackie Boy's head before it gets to wherever it's going and this whole situation blows wide open." The last three words of the line sound like they were re-dubbed.

Plot hole: At the end, Hartigan races out to the Roark Farm to save Nancy, where he takes out two guards quietly, with a switchblade knife. As he dispatches the second guard, we see the ruthless cannibal killer Kevin just yards away, inside the house, reading. Hartigan then makes a blunder, starts rushing, and he is shot by a third guard. Hartigan kills the third and a fourth guard with two handgun shots. Obvious question: With three gunshots in rapid succession just outside the remote house, why didn't the hyper-alert and agile Kevin come out and rip Hartigan to shreds? No, the generic contention that "Kevin wasn't concerned with Roark's son" is not an answer. When Marv infiltrated and attacked the Roark compound (twice), Kevin immediately engaged Marv. In both instances, Kevin responded to attacks on the compound without even knowing who was attacking. But Kevin completely ignores Hartigan's attack, which seems like a plot hole.

Continuity mistake: After Miho saves Dwight from the tar pit, During this scene Miho is black and white, but in Dwights first closeup you can see Miho's head in the background, her skin is tan/brown color. This was due to special effects changes as originally Miho's skin was colored in that scene and in that shot they forgot to change it.
Revealing mistake: When Hartigan is talking to Shellie the waitress, asking about Nancy, you can tell that the bottles of beer are glued or otherwise fastened to Shellie's tray, because she tilts the tray enough to tip the bottles over several times, and you can see the liquid inside them tilt as well, but the bottles stay put.
