Continuity mistake: After the plane is docked Stallone and Statham enter the customs agency. Statham is wearing a Canon 5D MarkII camera on his neck with a small lens, he even shows it to the customs agent. After leaving the customs they walk across a square. The camera now has a big zoom lens attached to it. Statham is not wearing a lens bag. Where did he get that lense from? Also strange is that the lens is set in manual focus instead of automatic. Yet the picture stays focused even zooming in. This is not possible without looking at the screen. Plus the camera is turned off in the close up shot, with the image on the LCD composited in.

Continuity mistake: When we see Barney and the army both racing through the streets, there is a little boy who throws something at the army. In one shot he starts the throw with his left arm but finished it with his right arm.

zephalis

Other mistake: When Statham has a 5d mark2 Canon camera there were a couple of mistakes in the close ups. At 29:58 the camera is actually off. At 29:55 it shows him twisting clockwise and you see the lens extend then it shows the lcd screen all zoomed in.But the lens he is using is a standard telephoto its only 24mm-70mm and he zoomed out to 24mm which is really wide. Plus that particular lens extends when it is at its widest unlike most other lenses.

Other mistake: In the opening scene on the freighter, the laser beams track the hand movements of the pirate. First, it is much faster and more precise than what would be possible. Second, why would the SWAT team aim at the pirate's fist, just because he was acting tough?
