Patriot Games

Factual error: Just before Sean Miller shoots the bookseller he takes the safety catch off the Ak-47. However, he moves the catch two clicks down and then fires the weapon on automatic. This is incorrect. For most modern weapons the safety catch feature goes safe-semi-auto, however the AK safety catch goes safe-auto-semi.

Continuity mistake: When the terrorists attack the van at the bridge, shortly after the explosion, you see the terrorists crossing the water in a boat. In the background you can see the van on the bridge with its doors open, shortly after this the terrorists are at the van doors demanding that the police open the van doors!
