53 mistakes

Continuity mistake: As Nicole walks across a plaza with Clooney to meet the Russian spy, she is wearing sheer stockings and low pumps. As she walks off the plaza she is wearing knee high boots with fur tops.

Factual error: When they download the requested file from the computer you can read ie."600 Dantensatze in Databank." Correct is: "600 Datens├Ątze in der Datenbank." At the same time when the bad guys try to identify Clooney you can read on the screen the German "Gerwicht" for weight. Correct is: Gewicht.

Factual error: The Russians stopped using steam locomotives in the 1970's. So bringing one out of retirement in 1997 to haul nuclear warheads would mean that your highly secret nuclear train would be well known among rail enthusiasts for weeks before.

Continuity mistake: In the first scene that introduces us to George Clooney's character, we see him in front of some sort of Judicial committee. The first scene he wearing gold leaves which indicate the rank of Major, although in the movie he is a Lt. Colonel. Then very next scene when we see Clooney he is wearing the correct rank.

Plot hole: Where are the police? The chase takes about 8 minutes in the centre of the biggest city and capital of Austria, not to forget the using of the guns.

Continuity mistake: Just after George Clooney's friend has been killed, he roars off in his car, banging the BMWs. A bit of plastic each side of the bumper falls open, nearly coming off. A few shots later the car's driving towards the camera and they're both back in place.

Other mistake: When they have recovered the nukes, after the nukes are set on the bridge George Clooney is rolling on the ground. His gun holster is unfastened and the gun is missing. A few moments later when he is talking to Dr. Kelly on the phone, the gun has reappeared.

Plot hole: When the diesel train stops in the tunnel, one of the soldiers tells another one how far they are from the spot where the nuclear detonation will take place. Do the math: the distances don't work out. At least one of the trains would have to do over 100mph AVERAGE to put enough distance between them. Military precision, indeed.

The Peacemaker mistake picture

Continuity mistake: Just after the explosion in the square, we see a shot of the Mercedes' door, and it's still bright silver. In the shot immediately afterwards of George Clooney and Nicole Kidman getting to their feet, it's charred black.

Jon Sandys

Continuity mistake: In the fight scene between Tom and Alec in the truck that is hanging over the edge, when Tom is pulled up by the helicopter he cuts the rope and lands on his back. He actually loses his knife which is in his right hand, yet in all following shots its reappeared back in his hand.

The-Immortal

Continuity mistake: Just after they get the information from the guy's computer, Tom's friend picks them up. His window is up as he pulls up to pick Tom and Julia up, yet the next time we see it a second later it is down then it is back up in all other shots.

The-Immortal

Continuity mistake: When the bomber walks on to the streets of New York, he passes a violinist standing next to a tree. There is a man with a red coat sitting on the trees ledge and a black man standing next to him, yet in the following shot (perhaps 1 second later) the man sitting on the ledge and the black man are both standing up about 4 feet away from the tree.

The-Immortal

Continuity mistake: When the helicopters return to base after capturing the warheads, it does a shot showing both of the helicopters coming from either side of the shot and landing. The next shot from the hangar however, shows one of the helicopters landing again.

Continuity mistake: When Tom and Julia are in Julia's office, Tom sits down while Julia is on the phone and begins to read the small card from the flowers. In one shot Tom's three/four fingers are on the back of the card, then in the following shot he is holding the card at the edge with just his fingertips on the card.

Plot hole: When the two remaining American helicopters return from their incursion into Russian airspace, both land outside the operational HQ hangar. This is fine, except for the question of where the eight warheads that they recovered have gone to. Surely they would have brought them back to the base rather than just leave them on the bridge, but if they had, then shouldn't they either have them underneath one chopper when they both land? Or if the chopper carrying the warheads had offloaded somewhere else on the home airbase, why did both helicopters land at the same time outside the HQ hangar?
