Anachronisms 

When Mesrine & Mercier are standing on a the roof of the building in Montreal, you can see cars/trucks/vans on the street, you can clearly tell they are modern vehicles and not ones from the '70s when this is supposed to take place.

Audio/visual unsynchronised 

At the Bonaventure metro station scene, when the metro arrives, a sound of the wheels screeching can be heard as the train stops. The Montreal metro has rubber wheels, so it normally stops silently.
