The Foley artist chose the wrong sound effect for the camera used by the recon team in Somalia. The camera used is a Canon 20D digital SLR, while the sound produced when the operator releases the shutter is that of a 35mm film SLR with a motorized film drive. Since digital SLRs use an imaging sensor instead of film, they do not need a film advance drive and would not make that sound. Instead, you would hear the click of the shutter followed by a much more rapid whir of the shutter curtains being reset.
Mexico, the first (GMC) dump-truck hits a car located in the street parked to stop it. After the crash you can see actual damages on the right side, the light and the metallic bumper of the truck. In subsequent scenes the side, the light and the bumper have no damage at all.
When in a two truck convoy traveling through the cartel-controlled area of Mexico, the first half of the trip features a GMC and an International dump truck. The second half features a GMC, still in the lead, but the second truck is now a Freightliner.
During the Jungle Raid, the second guard is shot and the three-man team emerges from the water. We see the lead SEAL's point of view as he makes his way on the embankment and after he passes below the larger tree branch, at least two silhouettes of crew members are clearly seen kneeling at the top of the bank on the right side of the screen behind the shrubs. The following shot is from the position of those crew members.
The male CIA Agent meeting up with Agent Morales in Costa Rica claims to have ridden his motorcycle from Colombia that day. There are no roads between Central and South American. The Pan-American Highway is broken up by a virtually impassable section called the Darien Gap. Vehicles have to be transported from one to the other.
At the beginning of the film, there was a shot which is supposed to be in the Philippines, but if you look closely, some store names are printed in the Indonesian or Malay language. Also in the Philippines, there are no Buddhist spirit houses in any school grounds. The film showed a typical Thai/Cambodian school with spirit houses. The school uniforms were also typical of Thai/Cambodian students.
The lens used on the Canon 20D to take near photos of the weapon transport hasn't got anywhere near the magnification shown in the film. Thus, the viewfinder pictures are taken from a different position, or with a much bigger lens.
Motorcycle plate numbers in the Philippines comprise a 4-digit number followed by 2 letters. And though the ice cream truck bears a correct plate number convention for 4-wheel vehicles (3-letter and 3 number), the color of the plate is red, which is issued for government/official vehicles only.
In the Navy, a Lieutenant out ranks both a Chief Petty Officer and a Senior Chief Petty Officer. So why is it that the Lieutenant in this movie is taking orders from both the Chief and the Senior Chief?
When Weimy and Sonny are dispatched to Africa to conduct reconnaissance, they are accompanied by six additional SEALS when they parachute from the C130 into the ocean. When they rendezvous with the submarine, Weimy and Sonny enter the submarine alone, and the sub submerges immediately thereafter.
The remaining men are not shown entering the submarine, so where did they go?
