Factual error: When the truck carrying the nukes is being tracked by a spy satellite we see a view of the vehicle that is meant to be from high up in the atmosphere. After the truck has left the convoy and is moving along a road in a valley, the perspective of the passing countryside would suggest that the shot is taken from a low flying helicopter, certainly not a satellite.
Other mistake: The Digital logo on the laptop has been turned upside down especially for the film, since the logo would otherwise show upside down to the camera when the laptop is in use (most laptops are the same - the logo is the right way up to the user when the lid is shut).
Factual error: In a briefing room the branches of service are incorrectly lined up in incorrect order and should be Army, Marines Navy, Air Force, Coast Guard.
Factual error: When Dusan, the Bosnian terroist, arrives in the U.S. the text reads LaGuardia Airport. An international flight would have landed at JFK or Newark. Dusan also views downtown Manhattan on the left side of the plane heading east, which is towards JFK. (01:29:00)
Other mistake: When Kelly asks Sgt. Beach how much time is left to track the truck, he says "45 minutes" but if you look at the screen showing how much time is left it is nearly two hours.
Other mistake: Early in the film, LTC Tom Devoe takes a fax of the alleged missile train departure orders off the machine, and starts reading it as he walks to Dr. Julia Kelley's office, taking a moment or so to reach the office. After talking with Dr. Kelley for a moment, he still scans the list looking over her shoulder. After he walks away, Dr. Kelley reads aloud Kordurov as the second name on the list. Wouldn't Devoe have recognized the name as he scanned the list before he gave it to Dr. Kelley? (00:28:55 - 00:29:45)
Factual error: The German text on the screen in Vienna has many small spelling errors. 1.) Under the sign of printing you read the English "Quantity" and the German "Betrag" (Amount) in the same invoice 2.) Under the search bar you first read the wrong word "Schen", one minute later the right "Suchen" (Searching) (00:44:05)
