Vantage Point

Other mistake: When Barnes first gets into the Chevrolet Astra (blue car), he pursues the police car but never changes from first gear, as he has one hand on the steering wheel and the other holding his phone to his ear. Without a gear change he'd never reach chase speeds, plus the engine strain would be easily heard.

Continuity mistake: When the president is abducted in the ambulance there is a shot of him waking up. In the close-up of his face as he awakes, the metal nose clamps on his plastic oxygen mask are sticking straight out; when the camera angle changes the metal flaps are clamped down on his nose.

Continuity mistake: When the US Secret Service agents take the Spanish Police agent into custody before the explosion, the agent takes the Spanish Police agent's police badge off his belt and hands it to another US Secret Service agent. After the explosion the Spanish Police agent is seen running away from scene and his police badge is shown back on his belt. (00:27:00 - 00:30:00)


Other mistake: When the Secret Service agents are running after the Spanish cop, they are running and shouting with their weapons waving in the air, yet the group of Spanish police that they pass don't try to challenge them.

Plot hole: It stretches credibility that the little girl wanders quite far away from the plaza and ends up on a busy road, and her mother just happens to be nearby.

Suggested correction: Anna wasn't following her mother. Her mother got separated from her in the chaos and when Howard carried her to safety, she saw a woman who resembled her mother leaving the plaza. She then ran in the general direction of the woman and it just so happened to be the same direction that Howard was running and ended up in.

Also, it isn't entirely out of the realm that her mother ran in the same direction as them both prior to Anna seeing her since she was out of the plaza before Anna and Howard were.

Luis: Is everything going to plan?
Suarez: To the last detail.
Luis: And the President? Are you sure they sent a double?
Suarez: The beauty of American arrogance is that they can't imagine a world where they're not a step ahead.

Trivia: There were several Secret Service consultants on this film to give realism to the action. However, they were unhappy with the final product as it seemed that the kidnappers were able to get to the President without all that much trouble, even if they did have an insider.
