In the scene where Jim discovers he has been rejected by the LAPD and goes into a violent rage, there are several inconsistencies with the shots of the traffic behind his Ford. For example, one shot shows Jim marching up to the car on his right, a bus passes the left side of his car. The following shot shows the same bus behind his car. Another following shot then shows no traffic behind his car for at least 100 meters.

Jim's Smith and Wesson 5904 pistol changes several times throughout the film. Sometimes he is seen wielding a Smith and Wesson 5904 with a squared trigger guard. This indicates it is an earlier production model. Other times in the film he wields a Smith and Wesson 5904 with a rounded off trigger guard, which indicates a later production pistol.
