Factual error: In one of the scenes where the young terrorist boy is talking with his young buddies, in the background is the unmistakable image of the Burj al-Arab, a huge sail shaped hotel that is located in Dubai (where the movie was actually shot), however this is supposed to be taking place in Iran. This hotel is a well known international landmark and architectural icon.

Factual error: In the scene where Woodman receives a call from his wife on his Blackberry, we see a shot of his Blackberry with the display reading "Julie - Home" and the number +41 149 57 79. The Woodman's in Geneva, Switzerland. While the film makers would obviously not show a real phone number, they did not get the phone number composition right. The country code is correct (41), however the Geneva area code is 022 (or 22 in international calling); so, the display should say 41 22 followed by a 7 digit number.
