Corrected entry: They spend the weekend tunneling, but are relatively pristine when they emerge into the vault. No way.

Correction: They did not go straight into the vault, they waited until the air was clear giving them enough time to change clothes.

Corrected entry: During the scene in the pub where Terry tells Martine he's taking a break from the robbery, he's not only served a pint within seconds of walking to the bar, he didn't actually get around to ordering it in the first place. That's good service when you not only get served within 15 seconds after arrival, but the bartender uses telepathy to figure out what you want.

Correction: Martine gives Terry the pint she'd previously ordered from the bartender (with the smokes and chips).

Corrected entry: During the robbery the group opens a wine/champagne bottle. Jason Statham's character says it's from '47, possibly being a nod to him being wanted by fans for the role of Agent 47, the main character from the movie Hitman.>/i>

Correction: This is an assumption, and using the word "possibly" doesn't make it valid trivia, and the fact that Jason Statham was not even considered by the filmmakers for the role of Agent 47 it is baseless.

Corrected entry: Most (if not all) the cars/trucks that appeared in direct shots in the movie appeared to be in immaculate condition. Even the vans used during the robbery looked like they just rolled off the showroom floor (i.e. washed/waxed and not even a bit of dust on them). You'd think that with the movie being set in London, at least the service vehicles would be a little grimy and banged up a bit.

Correction: Why? The vehicles are all period vehicles, and represented as being recent model years which fit in with the timeline of the movie. I have an 18 year old car which looks like it is only a couple of years old, and it's driven daily. It's not banged up, and is washed weekly. The service truck I used to drive was required to be washed daily, and any accidents, no matter how minor had to be reported and repaired. As for dust, there is some visible dust/dirt on more than a couple of vehicles. (Thanks HD DVD).

Corrected entry: Michael X (Abdul Malick) is from Trinidad, but the actor has a very strong Jamaican accent which is very far from a Trinidadian accent.

Correction: Not everyone speaks with the accent of their native country. Many people adopt the accent of the place where they receive their education, the country they move to, or the group of people they are closely associated with. After moving to the United Kingdom in 1957 any number of factors could have had an influence on the way he spoke. And, there will always be some differences between the historical character and the actor portraying him on screen - saying that Moses didn't speak English with a slight midwest accent would not be a valid movie mistake.

Factual error: We see Jason Statham walking into a shop in 1971 which has a Visa/Barclaycard logo on the door. Only problem with that is that the name Visa wasn't brought in until 1977.

Wendy Leather: So, come on then, what don't I know? Romantic dinner on Monday night?
Terry Leather: Look honey, I'm going to be working some strange hours over the next week or two, so don't ask me what I'm doing because I don't want to lie to you.
