Continuity mistake: Near the end of the film, when the SEALs are in the inflatable boats heading towards the coast of Beirut, there is a shot from behind showing all the SEALs wearing black diving suits. But when the shot changes to a close up of their faces, you can see they are wearing camouflage fatigues, not diving suits.
Factual error: Hawkins pursues the flatbed tow truck that has towed away his car. He climbs aboard and uses the controls to tilt the bed and tip his car onto the road, then drives it off. He missed an important step; vehicles on a flatbed are chained down fore-and-aft for security, and at no time did we see him release the chains.
Pilot: Lieutenant, you guys are incredible. Thank you.
Curran: There's no reason to thank us because we don't exist. You never saw us. This never happened.
Hawkins: One more thing: you're welcome.
Hawkins: For God's sake, be careful out there.
Ramos: If I were going to be careful, I'd have joined the Coast Guard.
Curran: This is starting to piss me off now cool out.
Hawkins: Oh I am cool. You should see me when I'm hot.
