Factual error: In the underwater scene when Rex blows up the ice pack, ice appears to be denser than water in this situation. The ice sinks when it's blown up, and even if there were pieces of metal on top of the ice, it shouldn't. Some pieces the size of a five-story building have no metal and still sink.
Continuity mistake: When Ana returns home to her husband, they converse outside the house. He asks her how it was in Monte Carlo. As he asks her this, she is entering the front door and he is about 8 feet behind, following her. The next shot shows them both in the house, and they are very close together when she answers that she didn't get what she want.

Plot hole: The super warriors that are given the venom are supposed to be fearless and without self preservation. However, during the scene in the Sahara base when they are helping to get the warheads back from the Joes, one of those men screams out in fear as he falls down the shaft, which makes no sense as the one guy did not scream in frustration when he was bitten earlier by the deadly snake and knew he would die.
Other mistake: When Ripcord flies the black jet toward the White House, he decides to ascend to the atmosphere to rid the craft of the nanomites. As he flies toward the lawn and up the air, he narrowly misses hitting the balcony, where an agent shields himself with his arms from the jet. At such a close distance and at that incredibly fast speed, the agent would have been pulled in by the jet's wake and thrown up in the air.

Continuity mistake: After the Hummer crashes into the train during the chase in Paris, Ana crawls out of the wreck. The right side of her face is covered in streaks of blood. Seconds later, as she runs into the balloon guy, her face is spotless. The blood returns when Ana enters the glass elevator.
Factual error: During the chase scene through Paris, they start by driving through the Arc de Triomphe which is North West from Central Paris. Then the next scene the chase takes us by Notre Dame, where it is on the other side of town, North East. The Eiffel tower is on the west side of town. So, started at the North West, drove to North East of town, then drove back to West near the Eiffel. They could have just driven south of Arc De Triomphe and be there in something like 10 minutes.
Factual error: During the chase in Paris, the bad guy's car is nicked by the metro train. Instead of lunging forward (in the train's direction - and left in the car's direction) the car jumps 20 meters into the air. Even though the train has a tilting front end, the impact would never create a force in that direction.

Continuity mistake: After the Joes are released from the French, Heavy Duty and Ripcord are walking ahead and talking about Duke. Far shot shows them reaching the edge of the shadow of the building they are leaving. The next shot up close and they are back in the shadow again, and the shadow's position and shape has changed indicating the shot was taken later in the day.
Continuity mistake: Duke and Ripcord are arguing about joining the Air Force. Moments before Duke says "I want to be on the ground in the fight, not flying over it" two large rocks come into view out his window as they pass. Shot cuts to Ripcord's reaction, then back to Duke which takes a few seconds. Those same two rocks come into view again through his window.
Continuity mistake: After the first scene with McCullen getting the red hot mask on his face, another guy is giving a presentation of the new nanomites at an assembly. One shot, he has one hand on the podium and one at his side. The immediately following shot from a distance shows both hands gripping the podium's sides.
