Continuity mistake: When Cris Johnson foils the robbery attempt at the casino, the scene shows that he drops the gun effortlessly and points at the robber in an inward direction (distance between his fingertips is closer than his shoulder width). Furthermore, Cris utters, "It's his gun. He's gonna shoot you people," after dropping the gun. When Callie Ferris tries to convince her supervisor to capture Cris, the scene (presumably taken from a surveillance camera) shows that Cris gives a little bit of thrust when he drops the gun and points at the robber in an outward direction. Also, Cris only utters "it's his gun," in the surveillance tape. The first time code is the approximate time of the robbery attempt and the second time code is the conversation between Callie and her supervisor. (00:06:45 - 00:11:25)
Continuity mistake: Jessica Biel is wearing hoop earrings with turquoise beads when she first walks into the diner before meeting Nicolas Cage. After sitting down in the booth the earrings are white pearl studs. After she leaves and gets into the car with Nicolas Cage they are the hoops with turquoise again. After she takes the gift to her student the earrings are pearl studs for the rest of the movie.
Continuity mistake: In the beginning of the movie, Nicolas is wearing his watch on his left hand . Then he goes with his right hand through his hair and the watch is on his right hand. (00:02:20)
Continuity mistake: After Cris has just seen Liz and her captor, he then turns around and vanishes. The scene then cuts to him standing and the FBI agents walking up behind him. The FBI agent on the left raises his gun and muzzle flashes can be seen as if the gun is being fired, however no shots are heard. Then the shot cuts again to Cris and the FBI agents moving calmly.
