Continuity mistake: After Alison slams the blue bear back in Will's hand, she walks away from him, to the taxi. She takes 5 good long strides to reach it, indicating she's walked about 15 feet, give or take a few. But then it cuts to a side angle and she's not moved nearly that far away from Will.
Continuity mistake: In the back seat of Vincent's cab, the Australian's phone is there and Alison is reaching through a hole in the seat trying to grab it, but the phone is sliding around in the seat like the cab is going on hard corners. It cuts to an exterior view and Vincent's cab is going about 10 MPH through a crowd in a straight line.
Revealing mistake: When the cops raid Hoyt's apartment building, Billy the dog is barking at them. But when multiple cops reach his level, Billy whimpers and takes off up the stairs scared. However, you can see the dog's tail is still up and partly wagging. A scared dog's tail would be tucked between its legs, even when climbing stairs.
Factual error: Before Harland arrests Will, he gets out of the cop car with a block of cash. Later in the movie you learn he burned it. There was a burn barrel next to the car with a low fire in it as he gets out of the car. It cuts to the cops yelling at him with a mega phone and then back to Will walking away from the barrel. Now the fire is roaring high up. It grew much too fast and high for such a short time. Money is not that flammable.
Continuity mistake: After seeing Riley again for the first time in 8 years, they have a toast. Then Will is sitting there holding his glass as they begin talking about Alison. In one shot, he is just holding the glass with his fingers around the side and still. Then in the very next shot, his index finger is suddenly on the rim rubbing it. Then it cuts again and his finger is back down.
Continuity mistake: When Will sees his kid for the first time in 8 years, he startles her at the door of his ex wife's place. She opens the door not knowing he is there. While they are talking, the shots showing her from the front show her right arm extended to her side holding the door. But in the reverse angles of her back, her arm is at her side.
Continuity mistake: While in the car chase in the parking complex, Will is forced to drive backwards trying to escape the lead cop. In one shot it shows the left blinker light on his car is fine, but in the next shot broken and smashed, then it is fixed again, frequently alternating.
Continuity mistake: When Will is fleeing through a parking complex in the stolen police car, the lead cop is chasing him. The car Will stole has no damage to the front as it almost hits a civilian car with a scared woman in it. Will then begins backing up and a close up shot shows the hood and front bumper to his stolen police car damaged. Then the very next shot it is undamaged and the lead cop runs into him, which causes the damage seen moments before.
Continuity mistake: When Will and Vincent enter the toy shop in the beginning of the film, Will walks up to a small yellow table and swipes his arm across it to knock off all the toys. But in that shot, it shows a black ball and a small unrecognizable object remain on the table. It cuts to a wide view and Will's arms are still in the same fluid motion. He then picks up the table, which now has nothing on it.
Continuity mistake: When we first see Will, the camera is panning across the driver side window where he is sitting. He is listening to a Credence song and bobbing his head, but his head is tilted back. It then cuts to a view from the windshield and suddenly his head is leaning down.
Continuity mistake: The overview shot of the Mardi Gras scene, Will Montgomery is standing next to his cab and to the far right, cab 5K20 is parked - with a driver leaning on it. He then jumps on to the roof of his cab, just as 5K20 pulls up.About a minute later, he runs past the 5K20 cab again, in two different shots - before finding the real, fake 5K20 cab.
