Continuity mistake: Mitch Wilkinson jumps to a hanging ladder in the hidden chamber at Mount Rushmore, the first shot shows him hanging off the ladder with a pistol holster through his belt loops. The shot cuts away and when it returns there is no pistol holster where there was seconds earlier.
Other mistake: There's a scene where they turn a wheel to control the flow of water into a much larger chamber. The cavern that is presumably completely filled with water (water is dripping off the ceiling) is massive. The flow from the smaller chamber into the cavern is relatively small. They enter moments after stopping the flow to find the cavern is drained. It should A) either take the cavern a very long time to drain or B) the cavern should never have been fully filled with water.
Continuity mistake: When Ben Gates and company first examine the Booth diary page, they notice a few of the digraphs relevant to the cipher. After he says to flip the page, pause it and notice the digraphs that are visible. They are: ME IK QO CQ TE ZX. Later, when Ben discovers that the key to decoding the cipher is DEATH, Riley inputs the keyword into his computer. Pause it when it shows his computer screen. The various digraphs that they have input are nowhere close to the ones they discovered on the page. They are: QF JU WJ AK EH. Not even the same amount of digraphs, no less. The results are larger too. The entire interface is different for the two shots.
Factual error: In the scene where Ben and Abigail are using the service lift to get to a different floor in Buckingham Palace, Ben presses the button on the exterior, then shuts the door. This is inaccurate as, with that type of lift, pressing the buttons when the doors are open does nothing. The lift can only move if the doors are closed when the buttons are pressed.
Continuity mistake: In the final scene of the movie, when Riley is walking toward his car, he walks approx 30 feet from behind the car up to the car, notice that there are no other cars behind him. As soon as he starts the car he accidentally goes in reverse and we hear him crash into another car, yet there was no one behind him for at least 30 feet. We did not see or hear another car pull in behind him in that few seconds. There is no car parked behind him.
