Transporter 3

Continuity mistake: At the end of the scene where Frank chases the car on a bike, he jumps into the car through the driver's window. You can see broken glass flying, but in the very next shot the driver's window is intact again.

Continuity mistake: In the scene at the gas station, Frank Martin grabs Valentina's arm to remind her of the bracelet and to not go too far. When he does, one shot shows him grabbing below the bracelet, the next shot shows him holding her above the bracelet, then the next shot below it again.

Continuity mistake: After Frank jumps through the car window and breaks it, pushing the driver out, there is glass all over the stick shift; in the next quick shot, the glass is no longer all over the stick shift, as Frank shifts it.

Continuity mistake: In the kissing scene at the cliff, Frank and Valentina seem quite close to the edge of the cliff in the final high/wide shot. However, in the close-up/dialogue shots leading up to that, considerably more ground can be seen behind Valentina's back.

Continuity mistake: In the opening birdseye shot of Frank waking up on the gurney, the explosive bracelet that sets the plot in motion is missing, but after a quick zoom, it appears on his wrist.

Continuity mistake: When Frank is chasing his car on the BMX bike the number and arrangement of pegs on the bike changes with each shot.

Continuity mistake: At the landscape, where Frank should do the striptease to get his keys back, you can see, that the distance of the phone book on the ground and the Audi both change several times, from shot to shot.

Factual error: In order to detach wagons from the train you have to do more than simply taking off an unsecured lid in the ground and ripping out some cables.

Visible crew/equipment: After the Audi that was chasing Frank goes in to the gorge, Frank rolls down his window to look down at the wreckage; as Frank is doing that, look in to the chrome of the outside mirror - you can see the reflection of the camera.

Continuity mistake: Franks Audi smashes through the steel barrier on the bridge to enter the water. When Inspector Tarconi comes to rescue him, the barrier is completely intact.

Other mistake: During the shoot out on the train, Frank takes cover behind the seats. Needless to say, those seats would never offer any protection against a hail of bullets.

Continuity mistake: Just before the two-wheel stunt between the trucks, the ramp to take him up on two wheels is visible.

Add time

Continuity mistake: In the two-wheel stunt between the trucks, in all closer views you can see Valentina's face right behind Frank's face. In one short scene just when the car falls back on all four wheels, in the wider view she disappears, and you can only see Frank.

Other mistake: Near the end when the bad guy blows up in the train:The fireball created by the exploding bracelet would be much more suitable to several kilos of high explosive or a fuel explosion. I could NEVER been created by the amount of explosives stored in a bracelet (see as well Mythbusters, the James Bond episode with the exploding pen).

Factual error: When Frank's Audi plunges into the deep body of water underneath the bridge, he succeeds in using the air from the tires to fill some empty bags in the trunk with air in order to send the car back up to the surface. In reality, the air in the tires would not be enough to keep it afloat, no matter where it's stored. The air in the tires will expand by a factor of something like 33, but that's still not a large enough volume of air to refloat the car.

Other mistake: Franks Audi smashes through the steel barrier on the bridge. Whilst we can accept the bodywork is toughened up and is bulletproof, its a plastic front bumper, plastic grille, glass/plastic headlights, yet there isn't even a scratch on either of these items after the car is seen driving after its pulled from the river after smashing through said STEEL barrier. The barrier would be particularly strengthened to attempt to prevent such a maneuver that Frank performed.

Plot hole: In the large chase scene, Frank hits the shoulder at 140kph (~85mph) but the car doesn't shake, slide, or act in any way like it should. Later, when he's moving around 220kph (~135mph), he somehow manages to end up on two wheels. To top it all of when he ends up between the semis he appears to be moving just barely faster than them which would mean he had to slow down somewhere. When his wheels make contact with the one semi the car doesn't jump or skip as expected because it's not moving very fast compared to the semi. I know this scene is for effect, but they could at least attempt to make it somewhat based on real physics.

Other mistake: When Frank's car lands on the moving train, it leaves no dents on the roof of the wagon at all.

BlueCell

Plot hole: When Frank's car goes into the gorge and goes under water, the battery of the car would have shorted out stopping the transmitter and triggering the bomb. We knew from an earlier scene the transmitter was wired to the car.

Add time

Plot hole: The main baddie is determined that no-one knows his name and is big on anonymity. Yet just after the foreign minister reveals in a phone call that he knows his name, he tries to call Frank and his name appears in the caller ID. So this big baddie who remains anonymous so no-one knows who he is gave Frank a phone with his name programmed in?

Add time

Continuity mistake: Right before the strip dance scene, when Frank Martin gets out of the car and the shot is from the back of the car. You can see the Audi logo is extremely close to the left tail light. Where in the next shot it is in the normal position.

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Frank does his striptease, he tosses his jacket and shirt to the side. In the overhead shot, the jacket and shirt are nowhere to be seen.

Trivia

While trying to locate Frank via gps, the techie is told to "hack into military satellites" to find him. There is a quick shot of a computer screen with code, and then it looks back at their faces. When paused on the code, you see the words "Command BitTorrent", which is a reference to BitTorrent, a program commonly used to download movies illegally off of the internet. Kind of ironic.
