The Mechanic

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Bishop and Steven are being chased on the skyscraper, after killing Vaughn, Steven encounters a man coming out of a blue door. Steven disarms the man and fires 2 shots into him, yet there are 3 bullet holes in the door behind him.

Continuity mistake: In the end, when Steve McKenna is filling the car with gasoline, after he says it is Arthur's last chance for buying something in the shop, the gas hose is out of the car, and Steve is opening the cap, whilst he already started fuelling the car. Next shot, he takes the hose out, and displaces it.

Continuity mistake: When Steve and Burke fight, Steve hits Burke with a brass fireplace shovel across the knee and then across the face. In the next shot, Steve stabs Burke repeatedly with a black fireplace poker he's suddenly holding instead.

Continuity mistake: The pearl handled gun that Harry Mckenna pulls out of the garage has stamped on the right side, Auto-Ordnance Corp, West Marley NY and a serial number of TGM10263. At the end of the movie, when Steve Mckenna dies and the gun is on the ground, it is a different gun. Now on the right side it has stamped, United Stated Property M1911 US Army and a serial number of 949186. (00:20:55 - 01:25:35)

Mistakes

While Bishop and Steve McKenna are practicing with various firearms, a slow-motion shot in the film of Steve shooting a .50 caliber rifle shows that, while the sequence depicts him firing "live" rounds, the extracted shell casing is from a "Blank" cartridge (evidenced by the crimped forward portion of the brass casing).
