Factual error: When Cattleya escapes through the sewer drain and winds up in front of the U.S. Embassy, she uncovers the manhole all by herself. Impossible for such a young child to do.
Plot hole: When Cateleya is in prison she changes into a black cat suit. Where has that come from? Where had she hidden that? She is wearing a very skimpy dress and would not be allowed a handbag or anything.
Character mistake: The actor who played FBI agent Ross is Lennie James, who is an English actor. When they are searching for the girl in the parking garage of her building, he orders the SWAT team and other agents to search everywhere, under the cars and to "check the boots." He says this twice. Boot is the British term for trunk. He should be telling them to check the trunks of the cars, not the boots.
Plot hole: When Don Luis escapes from his house in the black van he does a high-speed turn out the drive-way and the whole van slides sideways. A few minutes later when he is on the phone he turns to see the 2 dogs sitting behind him. If the dogs were in the van while it was sliding sideways they would have been thrown around the back of the van and would definitely have made some noise, so he would have known they were there.
Factual error: The beginning of the movie is set in 1992. The father gives the daughter an SD card. SD cards were not on the market until 2000's. The only portable media cards available were Compact Flash and Smart Media, which are much larger. She later swallows it for safekeeping which she wouldn't be able to do with earlier cards due to size. (00:05:05)
Factual error: In the office of the CIA agent on the wall behind the desk is a picture of President Obama but this part of the film is set in 2007, when George W Bush was president.
Continuity mistake: The women dealing with the table of drugs are dressed in their underwear. One woman in her underwear brings two glasses and alcohol to her boss. She leaves in a dress.
Revealing mistake: When she shoots the Ponzi scheme guy into his shark pool, the shot where he is seen from the side and sharks in the background, the shark can be seen in the glass part, but not in the water part between the man's arm and the glass piece. (00:58:50)
