Revealing mistakes 

After the fight between Lucas and Big Bill, at the end of the riot, Lucas points a flame thrower at Big Bill then "kicks' him in the face to knock him out, which obviously misses Bill by at least 12 inches. Lucas then drops to his knees and puts his hands behind his head in surrender to the guards. As he does this, directly behind him are two prisoners fighting; one of them reacts to punches far wide of the mark as well.

(at around 15 minds) During the initial police chase. When all the cars bust through the barriers towards the end of the bridge. The mustang disappears from between the four cop cars then reappears in the next shot. There are only two cop cars in front of the mustang that go off the edge and only two cop cars behind when Luke stops at the end. So where did the mustang go during the point when they busted through the barrier.

Errors in geography 

Clearly visible in some of the death car race scenes are Canadian trains - a sign that many of these shots were borrowed from the movie Death Race (2008).

Factual errors 

Sections 2204 and 2207 of Title 44 of the US Criminal Code, as seen in the legalese in parentheses at the end of the disclaimer preceding Death Match ("Title 44, US Criminal Code, Section 2204 and 2207"), actually are "Restrictions on access to Presidential records", and "Vice-Presidential records", respectively.

Revealing mistakes 

Just prior to the initial race the mass of prisoners are gathered and then released to run and fight their way to become a driver of the few cars available, on a first-come-first-race basis. Next, as they head down the track, the television production displays driver biography graphics with each of the convicts already posing beside the vehicle they just randomly acquired moments ago.
