Continuity 

The slogan "The once and future king" on the kitchen wall was written by Edward (Laurence Fishburne), who was left handed. As such the first couple of words are rubbed slightly by his sleeve. In the final scene we see a blood-spattered slogan, this time written perfectly without the faded first couple of words.

Factual errors 

The credits include the closing speech detailing the speech as "Robert F. Kennedy's speech, 'On The Mindless Menace of Violence.' The credits say it was delivered in Indianapolis, Indiana on April 5, 1968. This is incorrect; Robert Kennedy gave a speech on Martin Luther King, Jr.'s death in Indianapolis on the previous day but gave the speech presented on the recording at the City Club of Cleveland in Cleveland, Ohio.
