Revealing mistake: When Lowry first arrives at Buttle's flat to return the cheque, he hears a cough and turns to see a man smoking a cigarette, half hidden by a column. When he blows a cloud of smoke it is easy to see that it comes from a tube next to his mouth. He isn't even exhaling at the time.
Visible crew/equipment: In the scene where Lowry is in his new office in Information Retrieval and discovers that he shares a desk with Harvey Lime next door, watch as the camera dollies after Sam into Lime's office: first the camera wobbles as it grazes the door, then later in the scene as the camera moves in further, it bumps audibly to a halt against the edge of the desk, complete with a muffled exclamation by the camera operator.
Continuity mistake: When Sam first enters Jack Lint's office, Jack is at the sink massaging his scalp. There is blood in the water in the sink. After Sam says "Excuse me!" a couple of times, Jack turns around, revealing that the front of his white jacket is clean. The camera cuts to Sam, who exclaims: "Jack!", whereupon there is a cut back to Jack. The front of his jacket is now torn and bloody.
