The Art of War

Continuity mistake: When Anne Archer and Donald Sutherland are talking in the back seat of the car, the direction of traffic on Anne's left changes back and forth (they haven't made any turns). Also, a city bus is pulled over at the curb, facing the opposite direction of traffic and the parked cars. (00:13:05 - 00:14:00)

Continuity mistake: Wesley Snipes kicks out the driver's side window of the car that's trying to slam into him. Having shot out the back left window earlier, both left windows should now be gone. As the car veers away from Snipes in the next shot, both windows aren't smashed. Then, in the next shot the two left side windows are gone. (00:40:30)

Continuity mistake: As the bomb in the car is exploding, the shot from inside the diner has the windows of the diner shatter, but in the next 2 shots outside the diner, the windows are fine and intact. Seconds later, when Snipes steals the blue car, pulls around the corner and passes the diner, that shot shows the glassless windows. (01:06:40)

Continuity mistake: Near the end, when Robert Bly is monitoring Julia Fang from the U.N. guard station, one video monitor clearly has tracking problems at the bottom of its screen, which can only be caused by a tape, not by a live security camera. This scene comes up frequently, and the rest of the monitors are fine.

Continuity mistake: When Wesley Snipes is escaping from the suburban, they pass a tandum flatbed truck carrying a load of culverts, in the next shot they pass the same truck a second time.

Continuity mistake: The second time that Wesley Snipes runs through the construction site (this time it's empty), he stops to look around, and behind him is a cement ledge. The raindrops are falling and making splashes at the underside of this ledge...where it should be dry...

Revealing mistake: There are supposed to be two dead young Asian males sitting in the back of the car, but in this shot, it is so obvious that there are two dead 'dummies' riding in the back. Also, in the crash, a few seconds later, very blatant dummy heads are flying everywhere. (00:40:40)
