Payback

Continuity mistake: In the scene where the Asian gang is ramming Porter with their car, when they hit him the windshield gets smashed. When they all get back in their car and drive off the windshield is fine. (00:47:15 - 00:48:35)

Factual error: Porter cuts the fuel line on the car but in reality, fuel lines are mostly steel except for a few joints which are only a few inches long. There would be no rubber tube long enough to be cut as shown in the film. (01:01:30)

Sol Parker

Continuity mistake: After the final explosion the camera shows a closeup of the car keys in the ignition, a Ford. Camera shows him driving away in a Cadillac.
