Character error 

Henley Reeves (Isla Fisher), after magically coming out from the piranha tank, celebrates with the audience by giving a high-five to a few people. But she misses the last high-five.

Continuity 

In the FBI office, the clock on the wall goes from 11:17 to 11:27 and then back to 11:17.
(at around 28 mins) When the cop pulls Daniel Atlas's neck, Atlas's right handcuff becomes undone. Then, in the next shot, it is back on correctly.
When Alma Dray is first seen, her hair is in a bun. When she walks into the next room, her hair is in a ponytail.
In the scene where Dylan is chasing Jack, Thaddeus is watching from a 2007-2009 Range Rover. At the end when he finds it in a parking garage it is a 2010-2012 Range Rover.
When Thaddeus Bradley is explaining to Dylan Rhodes and Alma Dray how he began his career exposing magicians, the camera cuts to Rhodes twice. However, both cuts are exactly the same. All three characters are seated at a table. At different points during the scene, two ladies are seen passing each other on a set of stairs just behind Rhodes' as he tilts his head to listen more intently to Bradley's story. The same cut is used twice.

In the introduction to the New Orleans show, Isla Fisher (Henley Reeves) is in slacks; a few seconds later when performing the rabbit trick she's in a skirt; a moment thereafter when Jesse Eisenberg (J. Daniel Atlas) produces the soap bubbles and she floats away in one she's in slacks; the next time she's seen on stage after the bubble bursts she's back in the skirt.

When Thaddeus comes to wish everyone good luck, Merritt stands to do a quick reading on Thaddeus. You can see Jack in the background changing his position. Switching the camera to Thaddeus and back to Merritt, you see Jack change his position again.

Factual errors 

Dish Uplink Trucks cannot park under a bridge and shoot a satellite as shown in the Five Points scene with a news unit.

Revealing mistakes 

(at around 1hr 23mins) Projections are made onto the side of a building. This is onto walls heavily covered with graffiti, and lots of windows. Yet the projections appear as if they are onto a clean white surface, not the actual walls and windows.

Spoilers 

The goof items below may give away important plot points.

Errors in geography 

The keys shown at the bottom of the Seine at the end of the film consist largely of American "kwikset" house keys as opposed to the European padlock keys that they should be.
