Revenge of the Ninja

Factual error: Star shuriken, despite common misconception, are not inherently deadly weapons. They were mostly used for distraction, since their lack of a single weighted point makes their attack rather inefficient (although the weapon could be coated with poison). Although it is possible to hit an eye, it is very difficult to hit such a small target or scoring a sufficiently deep wound to penetrate to the brain with a star shuriken.

Deliberate mistake: When Braden confronts Cho on the rooftop, he uses dummies of himself to throw his opponent off-balance. But how could he have brought the bulky dummies onto the roof without being in the first place, or without proper preparation?

Plot hole: To murder Chifano's informant, Braden uses a throwing star. But there is one thing which makes this scene illogical: Braden is evidently not in his civilian suit, but in his ninja costume (the ninja suit's armsleeve is definetly on his arm). But since Chifano and the informant are looking in the same direction when the throwing star hits, and since a ninja costume would make Braden stick out like a sore thumb, it is VERY impropable that he'd escape the scene just like that.

Chifano: Braden, you're dealing with me now. As far as you're concerned, that stuff is already paid for. It's mine. So don't try any funny stuff.

Chifano: I'll fuck with whoever I want. I don't need you. I'll make my own deals.
Braden: If you're thinking about going behind my back Chifano, you'll be making a big mistake. A very big mistake. You don't even know me yet.

Lieutenant Dire: And mine.
