Revealing mistakes 

During the shootout at the house, the brothers run out to help Jack, then run back inside to dodge bullets. When they jump down on the floor right inside the house, Bobby brushes up against the brick wall (which is stopping all the bullets), and the whole wall shakes back and forth.

Revealing mistakes 

During the shootout, one of the attackers breaks into the house. Jeremiah grabs him from behind and stabs him. Yet no blood appears anywhere: Jeremiah, the attacker, and the knife stay clean.
