Crew or equipment visible 

When Spider has Johnny in the chair in the hospital as Jane looks on, the camera encircles all three. As the camera passes behind Spider, you clearly see the camera's shadow on Spider's back as it slowly swoops by.

The opening scrawl mentions the second decade of the 21st century, but the date stamp once the movie begins says, "The Internet 2021". 2021 would be in the 3rd decade of the 21st century.

Plot holes 

The subway tunnel seems abandoned: there's trash lying around the track and nobody else in the station. The tunnel lights and station lights might be lit because the Loteks want to make sure they can escape that way, but why are the signals still working?

Revealing mistakes 

Most of the guns are actually paintball guns. Brand names of several paintball makers are clearly visible at several points in the movie and you can often see CO2 blasts when the guns are fired.
