Continuity mistake: Dylan and Alma go on a plane to New Orleans. In the first shot of the cabin, the shot pans from the passengers over to Dylan and Alma. When the shot stops panning, there are papers on Dylan's table. The paper on top is facing a 12 o'clock direction. Alma asks Dylan to pick out a card and he does. When he puts the card back, the paper on top is now facing a 10 o'clock direction without him ever moving it.
Plot hole: The Channel 8 News Channel reports Jack's death on a broadcast which is viewed by the three other members of the four Horsemen. Notice in this scene that they are looking really shocked by this. However, they are fully aware of the fact that Jack is currently alive. So why look shocked? They were the only people in that room they were in at that current moment whilst watching the news, so there was no-one there to try and fool. Extended version.

Continuity mistake: After Dylan is transported under the stage to the Horsemen's fake vault, Alma, Thaddeus and Thaddeus' assistant open the vault door after walking down the stairs. Thaddeus walks in and Dylan asks "What was with the helmet?" Thaddeus then exits the shot after Dylan finishes the line, but within a split second, Thaddeus has suddenly moved half way across the room with no time to do so.
Continuity mistake: After hypnotizing the woman in the cafe, Merritt goes over to her husband and begins to mind read him. Merritt begins to say "I'm picturing, don't tell me" and the man replies "Of course." When the man finishes saying "Of course", his head is shifted to the right about 40 degrees, but from the following reverse angle, his head is only shifted about one degree.
Revealing mistake: After the banker has picked out his card, Daniel says "Show it your friends in Section B. But not to us." As he says this, visible in the background is a television with a live feed from the stage. On the television, we can see Henley walking around the stage, but the movements of Henley on the TV don't match up with what Henley is doing onstage - on the live TV feed, she is shown looking up at the audience, but on the stage at the same moment she is looking at the banker. Also, Jack walks right by her and he is never shown on the TV.
Continuity mistake: After arriving at 5 Pointz, someone tries to find the combination for the safe and it is revealed to have had a green handkerchief attached to the rear end. Dylan then pulls on the handkerchief and keeps pulling on it to reveal more coloured handkerchiefs until it stops and a timer is heard ticking. When the clicking sound is heard, Dylan is shown holding onto the knot between a purple handkerchief and a blue handkerchief. The shot then cuts to Agent Cowan saying "What is this?", but when the shot cuts back to Dylan, he is suddenly holding the knot between a blue handkerchief and a yellow handkerchief. Then in the next shot, his entire hand is held onto the blue handkerchief.
Continuity mistake: When Dylan and Alma go to interrogate Daniel, the first shot of Daniel shows him playing with some cards. On the desk is the card box the cards go in. In the next shot, the card box is suddenly in his hand and the cards are suddenly back in the box. Theatrical version only.

Continuity mistake: When Dylan is shown the interrogation tape of Daniel stealing his phone, the video frame shows no lower than Daniel's belt as he tells them to zoom in tighter. But in a close-up of the video when Dylan says "Tighter" a second time, the video frame now shows almost half of his trousers visible within the video frame.
Continuity mistake: When Merritt mind reads the cafe guy, he "picks up a woman's name" and starts saying "A - B - C - D - E - F - G - H - I - J - Janet." In the rapid shot of the man's mouth when Merritt says this shows his head in fixed position. But in the rapid shot of the man's eyes when Merritt says this now shows his head shifted a bit.
Continuity mistake: When Daniel starts doing a card trick on Thaddeus in their room, all four Horsemen are standing even with each other. A couple shots later, Henley and Jack are both suddenly standing behind Daniel and Merritt. Then a few shots after that, they are even with each other again. Extended version.
Continuity mistake: In the 5 Pointz, Queens scene where three of the four horsemen project themselves on the walls of the building, you see a cut to them standing in front of their three cameras. The cameras are pointed closely at their faces and yet you see a complete body shot of each one on the walls.
Continuity mistake: As Jack shows Dylan the cards (before throwing them at him), Dylan then says "Really?" And we can see there is already a huge red scratch on his cheek, which isn't caused until the cards are thrown. It couldn't have been from when Jack threw the flash paper at Dylan because no scratch mark was visible when that happened.
Continuity mistake: For Henley's trick she has handcuffs chained to her and is dropped into a tank. In one of the reverse angles, she has both of her arms stretched out. But in a close-up of her arms, she now has her arms extended with them in front of her. She is saying the same line during all of the shots as this happens so it couldn't have had anything to do with several seconds passing between shots.
Other mistake: When Dylan is transported from the stage to "the vault", Alma, Thaddeus and Thaddeus' assistant manage to get down the stairs to "the vault" just a few seconds after he lands as if they took a simple walk there. How would they get there that fast anyway? Dylan got to "the vault" by going through a "teleportation device" that went straight to the fake vault under the stage, but the other three had to walk down a flight of stairs to get there. Even with the fake vault being close to the stage it still would take longer to get down to the fake vault. To begin with, when the vault opened, the stairs they walked down were visible several meters in the background. There were about 13 steps on the staircase which would have made the width of the staircase about 3 meters and the height about 4 meters. With the staircase at this length and position, the staircase leading to the fake vault would have had to have been located around the sitting area. Alma, Thaddeus and Thaddeus' assistant managed to get to the fake vault in about 6 seconds, too quickly.
