In the chase scene where the criminals kidnap Julie from Collins Park, they steal a taxi cab. Right after Marcus jumps on top of the cab, you can clearly see a sparkler behind the front fender. This is probably a special effect to simulate sparks from the car bottoming out.

Factual errors 

In a car chase scene Mike is throwing ether-barrels from a truck. After that he fires at the barrels and they explode. In real life nothing would happen if you shoot at an ether-barrel because a bullet fired on metal wouldn't cause sparks.

When the crooks are breaking into the police evidence locker, they freeze and shatter the padlock, which lets both ends of the chain fall into the locker. In the same sequence, however, hands grasp both ends of the chain and pull it out through the bars as if there were two lengths of chain simply dangling into the locker and attached to the padlock. At the same time, chunks of the "steel" bars break off from the impact of the bolt cutters and the dragging of the chains revealing the bars are made of wood.
