Starting at 38:15 into the movie, when Scott shoots the officer escorting the prisoners, you can see a car in the background heading towards the scene. In the next scene, when Scott stands in the middle of the road looking for cars, the car is not present.

When Jackie shows the head of Interpol a police sketch, it is of a man in a hat. When the commander holds up the sketch it is of a bare-headed man. The two sketches alternate during the scene.

In the bar scene, when the newscast plays, Scott and another soldier talk about Scott's knife as he uses it to cut an apple. He lifts the apple to his mouth, and immediately on a reverse shot, we see the knife at his mouth as he bites a piece of apple.

When the red pickup pulls into the parking lot, we cut to a shot through the windshield of the driver getting out. The fuzzy dice hanging from the mirror have already stopped swinging and are hanging motionless.

Factual errors 

The scope on Curtis's gun is an Aimpoint Comp M series. It does not magnify the image as the movie indicates, nor does it have cross-hairs. Instead, it projects a red dot in the scope showing where the bullet will hit.

The gun used by Curtis to give Scott sniper cover at the seaside cabin is a Heckler & Koch MP-5. A submachine-gun meant for close-quarter combat. It is neither designed for, nor is ever used as, a sniper rifle. Its ammunition wouldn't even fly straight if shot through a window.

Misspelling: The Swedish airplane and the journalist's bag says "Sveriges Nyhetbyrå" In Swedish it is spelled "Nyhetsbyrå".

Revealing mistakes 

The "scarecrow" that Scott throws from behind the shed to divert the sniper fire is clearly a human stunt double.
