Factual error: When SGT Sanborn is placing the items in the white box, you can see his special skill badges. He has an EOD badge placed above his Combat Infantryman's Badge which should never happen. While it is possible for an EOD member to have a CIB (second MOS), no badge is ever worn above the CIB, EIB, or CAB. (00:09:25)mdlovin
Factual error: In the car bomb defusing scene, Specialist Eldridge spots a possible insurgent filming him with a video camera and states "He's getting ready to put me on YouTube." However, the film is set in the summer of 2004 (according to the official website), while YouTube was founded in February of 2005. (00:36:15)
Audio problem: In the scene where James "forgot [his] gloves down there", the sound from the detonation just before that is incorrectly in sync with the explosion. Given that they are a distance away from the blast itself, what should happen is you see the blast first, then hear it say about a second or more later (based on the estimated distance). (00:48:50)
Visible crew/equipment: When James is walking in his EOD suit, a crew member and camera can be seen in the reflection of the top of his helmet. (02:05:30)
Guard at Liberty Gate: What were you doing out there?
Staff Sergeant William James: Visiting a whorehouse.
Guard at Liberty Gate: Okay. If I let you back in, will you tell me where it is exactly?
