Plot holes 

The whole plot rests on Kazak and his men trying to kill Kate before her court case causes them to lose the Tortuga in the divorce case she is pursuing. However, they only need a couple of days to complete the transfer, and any court case Kate was undertaking would take weeks, if not months, before there was any chance her client would be awarded the ship.

After detecting the cellphone, one of the villains says "I have triangulated their position," but rather than a position, his display indicates a route of travel several miles long. Either the display is wrong or it is indicating where the phone has been for the past several minutes; in the latter case, the position could have been given that many minutes earlier.

If there were such a thing as a heat sensor, it would also detect hot water pipes when they had recently been used; and someone taking a cold shower would not seem to vanish, because the warm core of their body would still be detectable behind the cooled skin.

The interface depicted for the funds transfer is a bizarre and nonsensical combination of a computer display with an audio-based system such as would be used for access by simple telephone.

Bank names seen in the funds transfers include "Union de Banc Suisse" and "Banc de Credit," meaning "Union of Swiss Bench" and "Bench of Credit" respectively. In another bank name, "Banque Francaisse de Credit," we do see the correct French spelling of "bank," but now the French word for French has an extra S.

The villains detect Max's cellphone in use, but do not try to monitor his conversation on it, even though they have demonstrated the more difficult capability of monitoring conversations on a conventional phone. By monitoring the cellphone call, they could have spotted Max's deception at once.

Revealing mistakes 

On the train car, when Kate sits up quickly and points the gun at the assassin, she has her eyes closed when she pulls the trigger.
