Continuity 

During the live interview with Forster, the time jumps from 11:09 PT to 11:06 PT.
At the beginning of the movie, when Gramm gets into the taxi, he tells cab driver to take him to 114 Western. When he arrives at the destination, the address on the front of the building is 1001.
When Jack Gramm fires the warning shot at his student in the office, we see a close up of the bullet making a hole in the door. However, in the next cut the door is opened and we see both sides of it. There isn't any hole in it.
When Jack leaves the underground parking garage, his Porsche has 15-spoke rims. When he arrives at the university, his car has 5-spoke rims.

When Jack reaches the 7th floor of the Stearns Bldg, he racks the slide on his pistol. But he had just fired a warning shot past the student's head a few minutes earlier, there was no need to cock the pistol. And when he does cock it, the slide locks back, indicating the pistol is now out of ammunition.

In the scene where Jack synchronizes his watch with Agent Frank Parks, a closeup of Jack's watch shows a round face (it's clear this is Jack's watch from the color of the jacket sleeve). However, throughout the rest of the movie, Jack is clearly wearing a watch with a rectangular face.

Crew or equipment visible 

When Jack Gramm stops the motorbike in the parking lot, a crew member is visible in the background, wearing combat-patterned trousers and a black T-shirt.

Errors in geography 

Early in the movie, a Shoppers Drug Mart is clearly visible. Shoppers Drug Mart is a Canadian chain, with stores in Vancouver, where the movie was filmed, but not Seattle, where the movie is set.
When Jack Gramm gets into the taxi at the beginning of the film, an orange "24 Hours" newsstand is visible in the background. 24 Hours is a newspaper published only in major Canadian cities, including Vancouver, where the film was shot.

Roots stores appear twice: behind Jack and Kim when they go out on the street to get the Porsche, and behind a character walking down the street. Roots is a Canadian chain, with no stores in Seattle. The only US stores are in Beverly Hills CA, Aspen CO, Birmingham MI, and Park City UT.

At least one shot shows a green "Metro" box. Metro is a free newspaper distributed in 7 major Canadian cities, including Vancouver, where the film was shot. In the US, Metro is distributed in New York, Boston, and Philadelphia, not Seattle, where the film is set.

Factual errors 

When Jack finds out the Mariners score, he has 76 minutes left, meaning the time is around 10:30 am. The Seattle score is on the bottom, which means they are playing at home. MLB games never start before noon.
