In the beginning, the victim has been bludgeoned in the back of the neck. However, in the flashback, Walter hits him almost dead on in the face. Even within the flashback there is an error; from one angle the victim is quarter turned to face Walter, the next shot he is completely turned around.

Errors in geography 

When Walter Wade Jr. gets into yellow cab to go pawn the jewelry, he tells the cab driver to take him to 47th and 5th. The following shot shows Wade Jr. coming out of a jewelry store with the cash and walking away. As he walks away the green street sign on the corner clearly says 79th St. 47th and 5th is nowhere near 79th street.

Factual errors 

When Peoples is taking his mugshot he measures in at 6'1". Shaft walks over to talk to Peoples, he's measured at 6'6". Sam Jackson's bio lists him at 6'2".

Incorrectly regarded as goofs 

In the flashback, Diane Palmieri has blood on both sides of her face, with Wade's fingers on her left cheek and his thumb on her right jaw. Presumably, she cleaned her cheek but not her jaw, leaving the spot seen at the beginning of the movie.

During the gunfight in front of Diane's house, one of Peoples' thugs is seen firing a nickel-plated Beretta pistol at Shaft. The thug pulls the trigger numerous times, but the slide clearly locks back after the first shot, indicating that the gun is empty.
