Anachronisms 

After Matrix drops Sully off the cliff and returns to Cindy she asks him, "What happened to Sully?" At this point, Matrix has never referred to Sully by name within earshot of Cindy, so she would have no way of knowing his name.

During the final battle on the island, gunfire can be clearly heard in the background, yet Matrix is the only person shooting.

The military helicopters used in the movie are turbine-powered Bell Jet Rangers but the rotor/engine sound is from the older, piston powered models such as the Model 47 that are used in M*A*S*H.

The scene where Bennet and Matrix are fighting towards the end of the movie, before Matrix kills Bennet they have each others throat in their hands and one of their backs is against the furnace. While they are grunting and groaning, if you listen carefully, you can hear one of them say "switch" just before they change positions.

When Arnie sets his stop watch to count down from 11hrs, each second that the watch ticks over there is a loud 'beep'. This is consistent with when he looks at his watch later in the mall, when it reads 9hrs 40mins to go, his watch is still beeping every second. Therefore, Arnie's watch should have been beeping every second of the movie in between these two scenes, but we never hear it. Also, when Arnie and Cindy arrive at the Sunspot Motel (7hrs 57min to go) and when Arnie's in the back of the police wagon, at 5hrs 2min to go, the watch no longer beeps with each passing second.

Character error 

Matrix, a former Army Special Forces commando, secures his grenades to his tactical vest by tying the pins to a metal loop on the vest. No soldier with even a minimum of combat training with ever do this, due the hazard of the pin being accidentally pulled out, and killing yourself.

The airstairs at Val Verde Airport say "Aire Servicio", which is an incoherent, word-for-word translation of "Air Service" into Spanish. (Translated back into English, it would mean something like "Service. Skies.") The correct translation would have been "Servicio aéreo".

In shots of the seaplane near the island you can see the struts of the landing gear indicating that the gear is extended to the down position. However, in a water landing the wheels would remain retracted. The wheels would only be extended if they planned on taxing the plane up a ramp onto dry land.

At 52:05 John Matrix looks at the coordinates which are N33°13' W119°18' and says "these coordinates are somewhere near Santa Barbara. Those coordinates are nowhere near Santa Barbara, they're at San Nicholas Island, 87 miles (140Km) off its coast. However, when he finds them on the map, he points right to San Nicholas island.

Continuity 

When Matrix enters the shopping mall, it's daylight. When he leaves only a few minutes later, it's dark outside.
The yellow Porsche is damaged in the side collision with the red convertible, but when Matrix flips it upright and drives off in it, the side is undamaged.
During the big shoot-out near the end of the film, Matrix is using an M-60 machine gun which repeatedly acquires more ammo (the ammo belt is replenished) even though Matrix has no spare ammo with him, nor any time to reload.

Then he is arrested and the weapons that he grabbed after Cindy left are obviously confiscated, yet when he suits up on the beach for battle the pistol is one of the weapons he has and during the shootout the shotgun is fully loaded.

At the very end of the film. When the 3 helicopters and the seaplane come into land, it is quite a wide show, with no boats visible. A few minutes later, when the seaplane takes off again, a big white boat is near the coast. Even if the boat was off camera during the landing scene, a few minutes was surely not enough to get that far, and that close to the shore.

The rocket launcher. It has 4 barrels. Which means 4 shots. Cindy uses 2 rockets to save Arnie from the police truck. When he is using the rocket launcher when he is saving his daughter, he fires 2 rockets. 1 at the jeep behind him and 1 at the large impassable door. But when you see him fire these 2 rockets, they both come out of the same top right barrel. Why would he need 4 barrels if the rockets come out of a single barrel?

Halfway through the movie, Matrix is checking out the house where they keep his daughter. We then see a shot that shows what he is seeing through his binoculars, as he looks from the left to the right. Strangely, the landscape seems to move in the same direction as he is moving the binoculars, whereas normally the landscape would be moving in the opposite direction.

At the beginning of the movie when Matrix is driving his truck down the mountains after the bad-guys, there are two mistakes. The first is that just before Matrix's truck crashes, the two cars he's chasing (the car and the van) are very close to one another, and Matrix drives right between the two cars without hitting either of them. This is because after you see the shot of the two vehicles close to one another, the next shot you see the van that was following the car is way behind and totally misses Matrix's truck. The next mistake is just before Matrix's truck falls off the little cliff, you see many trees in front of him (where the cliff was supposed to be), however, once the truck actually falls off, the cliff is there with no trees around it.

Once he has escaped from the plane and is making his way back across the runways into the airport building, the shadows are smaller and more intense, showing the sun is more directly overhead - therefore it has suddenly become much earlier in the day.

Factual errors 

When Matrix escapes from the aircraft during take-off, he leaves doors open and breaks down sealed curtains. This would set off alarms in the cockpit and leave the aircraft unpressurized in flight; and therefore unable to complete an 11hr flight.
When Matrix crashes his car while chasing Sully, neither Matrix nor Cindy are affected by the crash even though neither are wearing seat belts (Cindy isn't even in a seat!), and the crash was powerful enough to severely damage the front end.
When Cindy fires the rocket launcher the second time, the recoil knocks her back. But when she accidentally fired it backwards the first time, there was no recoil.

When Matrix jumps from the plane is about 500 feet in the air. He lands in water about 3 feet deep and stands up unhurt, and is only wet from the waste down.
When Matrix gets his weapons from the shed during the attack that ends with his daughter being kidnapped, we see him pull back the loading handle on his rifle - however, the weapon is a Heckler & Koch HK91 which fires from a closed bolt, meaning that to make it ready to fire you actually have to slap the cocking handle into the forward position (after inserting a loaded magazine). Note: It's the same action you see Keanu Reeves perform on a H&K MP5K submachine gun (basically the compact submachine gun version of the H&K rifle) during the "lots of guns" scene in... The Matrix.

The explosives that Matrix places by the buildings on the island are Anti-personnel Claymore mines. You can see on the back, it says "APERS MINE" (APERS MINE = Anti-Personnel Mine). They spray out steel balls designed to take out enemy troops. The relatively small amount of explosive in them is used to propel the steel balls to lethal speeds. There's nowhere near enough explosive in them to demolish those buildings the way that was shown in the movie. In regards to the point about explosives being inside the buildings and being "ignited by the blast of the mines". There's no way Matrix could have known about the explosives inside the buildings. He was OUTSIDE the buildings, so he would have no logical reason to place the explosives there. Also, some of those buildings were barracks for the troops. There would not be explosives stored in them.

A DC 10-10 (the Western plane that Matrix is forced to board) has a fully-loaded maximum range of 3,800 miles, but an 11 hour flight into South America would be closer to 6,000 miles. Even if the plane flew empty, it would barely be able to cover that distance, and many passengers and pallets of cargo are seen on board.

As noted elsewhere, it is simply not credible that Cindy, a trainee pilot, could land an seaplane so neatly, but it should also be pointed out that she banks into a low level formation on three helicopters - a very tricky maneuver, and then immediately after take off banks tightly into a high speed flyover of the squad on the beach. Both of these stunts would demand a very high level of skill from a pilot, especially one flying a lumbering old seaplane.

Matrix reads coordinates N33° 13' W117° (or possibly W119°) 18'. Neither LAT or LONG has seconds; just degrees and minutes, but he says, "These coordinates are somewhere near Santa Barbara". Even if you fill in 59" for the latitude north, it's still quite a ways south of Santa Barbara. If you fill in 119° it takes you farther west out to sea: that much further from Santa Barbara. The closest island to those coordinates is San Nicolas Island, and since they did go to an island later, that must have been it. Still a far cry from Santa Barbara. The handwritten coordinates would be much easier to read on Blu Ray.

Well I've not heard of "type 4" and surely fuel used is differentiated by the type of engine not by the type of aircraft, JP4 is kerosene for jet engines and avgas for piston engines.

In the opening scene, Matrix is in the woods in a wife beater, but as he approaches his house, all the chimneys are pouring smoke as if there's a fire in each fireplace (or the furnace is going), which would indicate that the weather is cold. Jenny is also dressed in short pants.

Incorrectly regarded as goofs 

When Matrix is hit by Sully's Porsche it looks like his wallet falls out of his pocket. However, it is actually the side mirror being knocked off.

When escorting an unwilling passenger onto an aeroplane no professional would take the window seat and allow his subject open access to the aisle as Henriques did.

During the fight with Cooke in the motel, Matrix mocks the fighting abilities of the Green Berets, which is the nickname of the U.S. Army's Special Forces. Everything in the film indicates Matrix himself is a former Green Beret, including wearing an Army Special Forces belt buckle.

Matrix is taught to be super stealthy and has deadly instincts like being able to smell his enemy downwind, so it doesn't make sense that he would rip the seat out of Cindy's car, causing a lot of noise and making Cindy gasp in shock, when he's trying not to draw Sully's attention that he got off the plane. Surely it would've made more sense to just keep Cindy quiet and recline the seat far enough to disappear from view, or hide in the back seat instead.

If Cindy doesn't know where the island is, how would she know how long it would take to fly there? Also she states that "Type 4" fuel is for an Amphibian (sic) plane. There is no such animal as Type 4 aviation fuel.

The red car was chasing the Porsche. The Porsche was destroyed on the driver side when it was flipped in the accident. When Arnold took off in the Porsche after he turned it right side up, the car was perfect.

When Matrix swings across the mall, his face is obscured by his arms. However you briefly see the stuntman's face as he lands, before the camera cuts to show Matrix preparing to jump from the top of the elevator. In the meantime you can clearly see the stunt man's wig fly up when he lands on the elevator;

When Matrix and Cindy are about to take off in the plane, the daylight varies: when they are filmed from outside it's about to get dark, from inside it's the middle of the night and then it's about to get dark again.

During the stunt where the police van flips over (as a result of the rocket launcher attack) you can see the telegraph pole section used to flip the van over. It rolls down the road. (Stunts involving flips rely on a mini pile driver under the vehicle, as opposed to using an explosive charge by itself which can be too unpredictable).

The scene with the shack has many mistakes, but only if you play it in slow-mo. First, he throws the circular saw at the guy in the window, the saw is moving on wires and he has a hairpiece someone just pulls off with a wire. The next guy he stabs with a pitchfork, and Arnie just lightly stabs him and the guy falls forward holding onto the pitchfork to make it look as though he was stabbed. Arnie then throws a saw at a guy hitting him in the chest. The guy actually just catches the saw in his arms in a way to make you think he got hit. Then Arnie swings some sort of gardening tool into the gentiles of a man, but he actually stops it before it hits the guy and the thug just holds onto the handle. Finally, Arnie hacks off the forearm of a another man. You can tell that his arm was fake from the elbow on.

When Matrix reaches Arius' mansion (in actuality the Harold Lloyd Estate), he is rushed at by several soldiers of Arius' private army and starts shooting at them with his RPK. In one shot from Matrix's rear we can see him shooting four soldiers at the same time. However, the two soldiers on the far left drop dead even though Matrix is aiming his weapon to the right.

Shortly before Matrix kills Arius, he fires his assault weapon through multiple glass window panes, shattering most. However, no parts of the window frames are damaged, although when Matrix next jumps through the shattered windows, it is clearly seen that the frames are made of wood or an easily breakable material. It would be impossible for Matrix's bullets to have hit the glass windows only with no damage to the delicate framing around them.
