Factual error: Several shotgun mistakes in the final scene: 1) After firing the shotgun inside the room there should have been some smoke in the air. 2) She just shot the alien, so when she pumps the shotgun again it should eject an empty shell, but it does not. 3) The sound a loaded shotgun makes when you pump it is distinctly different from the sound an empty shotgun makes. It sounds like her shotgun is empty. 4) When the alien enters the cellar, the pump of the shotgun is pulled back. You never hear it racked forward before it is fired.

Revealing mistake: When Chigurh is preparing to blow up the car in front of the drugstore, he uses a piece of cloth as the fuse. He removes the gas cap, places a piece of cardboard over the opening, and lays the cloth on the cardboard. He then lights the cloth and walks into the drugstore. After the flames burn through the cardboard and reach the fumes from the gas tank, the car explodes. If you watch the burning cloth as he walks into the drugstore, you will notice that it never moves, not even when the car explodes. If the explosion had been real, the burning cloth would have been blown away from the car by the hot gases expanding out of the gas tank opening.
