Goofs

Audio/visual unsynchronised 

Near the end of the chase with the Branch Brothers through the corn field, they come face to face with Papa in the Combine Harvester on the road. The Trans-Am goes into reverse and the sound of tyres squealing on asphalt is heard. However, they are on a gravel road.

Continuity 

In the elevated train sequence, the villain "Bernardo" is shown outside the train car as "papa" is first shown on the roof of the train. In the next cut, he is still inside the train, about to exit.

(at around 11 mins) The rear log on Thorson's car (Chevrolet Styleline De Luxe 1951) disappears and reappears between scenes.

Factual errors 

When Mr. Thorson goes to pick up Bernardo, he fires 9 rounds from a Colt M1911 pistol, a pistol which can hold at most 8 rounds. Since he flipped the slide on the pistol, any round in the chamber would have been ejected, so he should have been able to fire but 7 rounds.

Miscellaneous 

The train chase was filmed using "6000" series CTA train cars (now out of commission). The train is labeled "Ravenswood B" - but Ravenswood trains would NOT have gone into a subway. They run only on ground level or on elevated tracks.

Revealing mistakes 

When Papa goes to pick up the Branch Brothers, he gets surprised by a tossed lit bundle of dynamite at his feet. As he runs away in slow motion the dynamite explodes behind him, throwing him into the air and his feet out in front of him as he lands on his back. A second later, grass lands in his face from the explosion behind him, but it comes clearly from the front, thrown by crew.
