Continuity mistake: When George Clooney is running, there's a shot of him in the neighborhood with the back of his shirt drenched. When they show him inside the house shortly after, the sweat stain on his back is significantly smaller.

Other mistake: The date on the surveillance footage from the camera in the Russian Embassy says 01.05.08, implying that it is either January or May (depending on which date notation is being used, American mm.dd.yy or Russian dd.mm.yy). However, it is fall/autumn outside, as there are dead leaves everywhere. And when Katie calls Harry we can see that his cell phone shows 17/9/08. (00:48:00)
