Continuity mistake: Right after the gas station explosion scene we see Triton follow the truck in the police patrol car. During the scene we see that the patrol car gets repeatedly shot down the whole right side; including the front right tire being shot out as Triton approaches the truck on the left side. A few moments later right before both the truck and patrol car are about to make the jump we see that the patrol car has no bullet holes on the front right side anymore; and the tire is still intact.

Scrappy

Revealing mistake: Watch carefully after Angela is thrown through the windshield of the bus. There is a shot of diamonds and blood-stained glass scattering on the floor. But in reality, there is a shot of plain diamonds falling and the bloody glass is faded in during the middle of the shot. Most visible on the edges of the screen, where the pieces emerge from nowhere.

Factual error: South Carolina Highway Patrol does not use the decal that is on the door like the one of the patrol cars that pulls up to the gas station.

Add time

Continuity mistake: After John wrecks the police car and comes out of the woods, he talks to the detective. He has what appears to be a small cut under his left eye, later that changes to a blemish. It changes positions through out the movie.

Continuity mistake: Vescera's prominent goatee/stubble completely disappears throughout the scene where he argues with Morgan (directly after the car chase). Vescera has stubble in every other scene bar this one.

Factual error: The movie is supposed to be set in South Carolina. John and his wife are shown driving along the ocean side and driving on a very hilly roadside. South Carolina does not have that type of coast line.

Add time

Continuity mistake: When the detective pulls up to the exploded gas station he stops right in front of two fire hoses. He then walks around and in the next few shots you can see that the hoses have disappeared.

Add time

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Triton is tied up by the local hunters, who think he is a cop, his knife is thrown into a wall by one of the other characters. Triton is never seen picking it up or grabbing it. Yet, in the next cut Triton is running through the woods (after escaping) and he now has the knife.

Add time

Revealing mistake: Although the police Camaro has ABS (for Anti-lock Braking System) moulded into the brake pedal rubber, they must have disconnected this system for dramatic effect, so that John could lock the wheels and smoke the tyres under heavy braking.

Character mistake: On the refrigerator is a letter from the Department of Defence - Defense is misspelled.

Trivia

During the scene when John is chasing down Rome and his crew just after they have kidnapped his wife, one of Rome's crew is shooting at John and crew says "He's like the Terminator" and the camera shows a shot of Rome lifting an eyebrow in the rear view mirrow. This is a reference to the massive hit Terminator 2 where Rome (Robert Patrick) plays the evil Terminator who just keeps on coming.
