Corrected entry: Each time a new individual's vantage point begins, a time countdown is shown at the lower left corner of the screen. It jumps from 1:59 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. every time.
Corrected entry: At movie's end inside the racing ambulance, Wm. Hurt releases the side rail of the gurney he's lying on (there's no question the gurney is on the left, inside the vehicle). The ambulance makes a hard right turn, and Hurt is thrown to the floor. Inertia from the turn actually would thrust Hurt to the outer-side wall of the ambulance, not onto the floor.
Corrected entry: The blue car that is driven by Barnes is a Chevrolet Astra (the Chevrolet badging is prominent several times). The film is set in Spain, and Chevrolet do not make nor import/export the Astra to Spain: Opel are the sole GM manufacturer of the Astra in Spain, and similarly Vauxhall are the sole manufacturer of the Astra in the UK.
Corrected entry: This one has been 'corrected' but the person 'correcting' the mistake didn't watch the movie properly. Barnes at NO point knows that the President has been abducted, and at NO point do HQ/Control ever inform him either, because quite early in the movie, Javier has already taken out HQ/Control as evidenced by Barnes repeated calls over the radio going unanswered. The mistake still stands, at the end of the movie Barnes asks Matthew Foxs character "where is the President", which is a plot hole because he was never told he was abducted.
Corrected entry: Towards the end of the film, Dennis Quaid asks Matthew Fox "Where is the President?" However, it was earlier represented that Quaid did not know that a body double was being used, and he would not have known that the real president had been kidnapped because he did not go back to the hotel after the mayhem in the square.
Corrected entry: The Spanish cop and the Secret Service agents are obviously physically fit when they do the chase on foot. Forrest Whitaker's character isn't, yet appears to easily keep up.
Corrected entry: Forrest Whittaker and the Secret Service agents have all been running quite a distance to get to the underpass where the Spanish cop gets shot, yet the little girl appears soon after in the same area. She would have had to have been an Olympic sprinter to be there at the same time.
Corrected entry: The entire film follows a series of events which begin at noon. However, in at least one shot of the plaza, a large clock at the top of a building reads 10:10.
