Heat

Continuity mistake: When Cheritto leaves the bank, he walks up to a Lincoln Town Car, which is a 4-door car. A very brief shot shows him opening the front door. The camera cuts to a side view and suddenly the back door is open. The camera cut too quickly for him to change his mind, shut the front door and get in the back seat. (01:46:00)

Continuity mistake: When Neil and Eady meet in the cafeteria, Eady is drinking from a glass. The position of her hand holding the glass switches mid-sentence when the camera angle changes. (00:26:30)

Continuity mistake: After the last security guard is shot in the armoured truck robbery scene, his arm positions change from being by his side to spread wide apart. (00:12:15)

stump

Continuity mistake: When the three guards are removed from their armored car the one standing in the middle has blood caked all over his face, however 4 seconds before Waingro shoots his victim the middle guard's face is mostly clean. (00:11:15)

Zim

Other mistake: Drucker is able to shoot out a tire on the getaway car at a distance of at least 30 yards, probably more. Later in the scene, he fires at Cherrito from a much closer distance and doesn't even graze him. Apparently shotguns have selective range.

Continuity mistake: In the parking lot, when Waingro escapes being executed, Neil and his crew spread out and look for him. It is nighttime and the sky is clear. Yet when Neil looks out to the distance, it is raining in the last shot.

Allister Cooper, 2011

Continuity mistake: In the bank robbing scene, they enter on the street level and since no elevators or stairs are used by them the bank must be on that same level. However, looking out of the windows during the scene it appears they are on an upper floor in the building.

Neil McCauley: Roger Van Zant?
Roger Van Zant: Yeah, who's this?
Neil McCauley: You know who this is.
Roger Van Zant: Yes I do, yes I do. I sent a guy to deliver the package. He didn't call, is everything all right?
Neil McCauley: Tell you what, forget the money.
Roger Van Zant: What?
Neil McCauley: Forget the money.
Roger Van Zant: Wh...it's a lot of money. What are you doing? What do you mean, forget the money?
Neil McCauley: What am I doing? I'm talking to an empty telephone.
Roger Van Zant: I don't understand.
Neil McCauley: 'Cause there's a dead man on the other end of this fuckin' line.

Trivia: Just after the scene when Waingro escapes being killed, there's a shot of De Niro looking at the sea through the glass with his left arm touching a window frame, and his automatic gun on a little table. This shot is inspired by the picture "Pacific" (1967) made by the Canadian artist Alex Colville.
