Character error 

All through the movie, Gianni Chellini's name is mispronounced. He is obviously Italian, and so his surname would be pronounced "Kellini". It is instead pronounced as it would be in English; "Chelini".

When searching a police computer Tarconi claims to be not PC literate due to the fact that in France there is only one PC for every ten policemen, yet he already has a PC in his office, surely for his own private use. He then proceeds to touch-type which would take someone of exceptional IT skills and great levels of dexterity due to the fact that American and French PC keyboards have a different key layout.

During initial chase scene with Lola and Jack in the car, there are a few close-ups of the dash including speedo and tach; first close-up shows the vehicle accelerating from 105 to 120 MPH in city streets, while the next shot shows speedo starting at around 20 MPH (speedometer is partly obscured in second shot). In both shots, the dash clock shows time of 4:54 and it looks like the same shot sequence based on camera angle/movement, just edited into the scene in a slightly different order than it was shot.

When "Lola" (the lingerie-clad assassin) forces her way into Frank's car and makes him drive at gunpoint, her heavy black eye make-up is smeared under her eyes. Throughout the scene it changes from being a very wide smudge to just being a little smudged under her eyes.

During the fight with the fire hose, Frank throws the hose at the guy going up the stairs and you can see the hose wrap once around the escaping bad guys right ankle. When Frank pulls on the hose and drags the villain down the stairs, the hose now has a knot in it to keep the hose wrapped on his leg. When the villain gets to the bottom of the steps, the knot is gone and the hose is once again just wrapped once around his leg.

When the Captain slumps forward on the control yoke, he rolls the control wheel to the right. This would cause the aircraft to roll to the right. In the subsequent outside shot, the aircraft is shown rolling to the left, not to the right.

When Frank jumps the jet ski onto the road, a midair shot shows the jet ski headed onto a 4-lane bridge directly in between the bus and a brown Toyota Camry, both in the right lane. In a subsequent shot, the bus is in the left lane on a city street and there are 2 cars between it and the jet ski. In the next shot, the Camry is not behind the jet ski, and in the shot after that, there are no other cars and the bus and jet ski are on a 2-lane bridge.

Immediately after takeoff the pilot says that he needs to return and land because the landing gear of the Gulfstream fails to retract (stuck in the down position) after the car explodes beneath. However during the ensuing fight scene between Frank and Gianni each time you see the outside of the Gulfstream (as it spins out of control) the landing gear is clearly up.

As Jeff is walking toward the camera in the underground of the hotel with his entourage, he's not wearing his glasses. Just before he turns the corner, his phone rings. After he turns the corner, and while his phone continues to ring, you can see Jeff's glasses on his face, but not enough time had lapsed (his phone is still ringing) for him to put them on.

Factual errors 

When the bomb is attached to the bottom of the Audi at the doctor's office, it appears to be magnetic, but the A8 is an all aluminum car with no magnetic material to mount the bomb upon.

When the gas is ignited from the cylinder in the doctor's office, the cylinder goes shooting down the hall. You can see that the valve is still intact. In reality, the gas escaping from the cylinder through a valve which is at a ninety degree angle to the cylinder such as the one shown, would force the bottle to spin, not to shoot out and fly in a straight line. Additionally, if the pressure of the gas were enough to move the cylinder, it would do so regardless of the gas being lit on fire. The burning, and subsequently expanding, gas would have no effect on the cylinder once it is outside of the valve as the burning gas does not increase the force on the cylinder.

In the Gulfsteam series of aircraft, there is no direct access to the wheel well for the nose gear, thus Frank could never get into the cabin by coming up with the gear.

In the scene where Frank is fighting Gianni's men in the doctor's office, Lola fires continuously without reloading until she gets outside. The type of machine pistols she uses usually only have 30 rounds per clip or less. However, she fires much more than 30 rounds from each weapon without reloading.

Tipoff's gun is a Hk USP-Match (modified) which is composed of a USP and a weight or compensator (black colored) called 'Match'. This weight is screwed to the gun in front of the stainless (silver colored) slide. So it should be impossible for Frank to remove this slide (while fighting and) without unscrewing the Match blocking it.

When we see the interior of the Gulfstream III, it is obviously too wide, and the window placement is incorrect. While the right shape, the sidewall is incorrect for this type.

Revealing mistakes 

When Frank chases the airplane that is taking off the jet engines clearly have thrust reversers engaged. Those are normally used to slow down the aircraft after landing and would cause the plane to crash if engaged on take-off.

When Frank opens the door to pull Gianni out of the airplane underwater, you can see that the surface of the water outside is about 2 feet above the door. However, once they're out, Frank has to swim up 60-100 feet to reach the same surface.

When Frank is walking in the room full of isolation tents for the various test victims of the virus, the tents obviously have positive pressure inside. If one were trying to isolate an airborne contagion inside, positive pressure would not be used; positive pressure is used to keep contagions out, not in.

When the Jamaican taxi driver hides in the yellow convertible during the fighting scene in the garage, you can clearly identify it as a Porsche 911 Turbo Convertible. However, when he meets his friends at the end and shows his brand new Porsche taxi, it is a normal 911 convertible (different bumper, headlights and rear) with the turbo rear wing.

Factual errors 

Although the aircraft hits the water at a high rate of speed and the windshield apparently shatters, there is no damage shown to the forward portion of the aircraft in the subsequent scene as the aircraft is sinking. With the volume of water that rushes into the cabin, the aircraft would certainly have to have substantial damage to it, and in reality would be crushed in the front as it is only made from aluminum.

Plot holes 

When Frank gets the first container containing the antidote it clearly contains more of the substance than he injects the boy with. So they would be more than enough to at least cure Jack's Mum and himself.
