New this month Factual error: Just before Declan and the Jackal start shooting at each other in the subway tunnel, one of the trains starts coming from the opposite direction and begins passing Declan. This train continues to pass him at full speed for a full 35-40 seconds while they shoot it out. Subway trains are not nearly long enough for that. Also, during this time another train comes from behind him and he has to get between them and hold onto the light for a few seconds while they pass. But the second train then passes first while the first one passes fully about 2 seconds after the second one came... and it got there first, by about 15-20 seconds. Subway lines are about the same length as each other as well. But the first one was way longer and way wrong.

New this month Factual error: After the Jackal jumps to the other side of the metro subway train to get away, Declan pulls out his cellphone and makes a call. However in 1997, when this movie was made and the time it takes place, there was no way you would be able to get cellphone reception in a subway station underground.
New this month Factual error: The big gun that the Jackal uses is shown to have a consumer grade lens on it. A mere camera lens. This weapon would have kicked so violently that just the first shot alone would have shattered the lens. This gun needs an optic that is designed for such weapons.
New this month Factual error: When searching for a weapon to use to perform his hit, The Jackal requests a weapon that is identified as a Polish ZSU-33 14.5mm. However what's shown is actually a Browning M2HB mocked up as a KPV heavy machine gun in 14.5mm. Both of these weapons have a fire rate of about 600 rounds per minute. But the film states the Polish has a fire rate of 1400 rounds per minute.

Factual error: In the scene where the Jackal is sailing in the "Mackinac Regatta" toward Chicago, the direction seems to be wrong. I believe that race is from Chicago to Mackinac. Also, all the boats are shown flying spinnakers, which makes a colorful scene, but which would require a very unusual north wind since the boats are headed south into Chicago.

Factual error: On the ferry boat ride, which should have been from Canada to the United States, they were aboard a North Carolina ferry... The North Carolina flag was flapping in the wind next to the US flag. There was a closeup, and you could even see the name of the boat, which is named after a North Carolina Governor, and home ported in Moorhead City, North Carolina.
