Character error 

Det. Cross may be highly intelligent, however, his actions as a police officer are lacking. When he encountered an armed highly skilled assassin that had killed multiple armed opponents, he did not shoot him. This of course would have negated the rest of the film.

When Detective Monica Ashe is first giving details about Fan Yau Lee to Detectives Thomas Kane and Alex Cross just after Fan Yau Lee's murder she says that Fan Yau Lee received an MBA from a university in Shanghai and was then awarded a "Rhodes Scholarship". Rhodes Scholarships are awarded to deserving individuals from fourteen specified geographic constituencies. Mostly, these geographic constituencies are, present or former commonwealth countries of the United Kingdom. China, the country where the city of Shanghai is located, though is NOT one of them.

Dr. Cross tells Daramus Holiday how the D.A. (District Attorney) will deal with him if he refuses to cooperate. Michigan has County Prosecutors, not District Attorneys.

The use of the name "Paramita Megawati" is not common in Indonesia. "Paramita" and "Megawati" is the name commonly used for a first name or a nickname, but not to be combined into one name intact.

The end credits incorrectly attribute the hymn tune "Faith of Our Fathers", sung at Maria Cross's funeral, to Colleen Coil. This was merely an arrangement of the 1849 work by Frederick William Faber, with music from 1864.

When Picasso is sneaking into Erich Nunemacher's building, the screws are shown turning clockwise to loosen. Screws (with some very rare exceptions) don't work that way. Screws turn counter-clockwise to loosen.

Several routine police procedures are absent. Since the killer had called the cell phone of Det. Cross, all his phones would be monitored. The funeral would have surveillance. High profile threats would involve a SWAT team, not just 3 detectives.

Towards the end of the film, when two cars collide, Alex Cross' airbag inflates. He then cuts the airbag away in order to leave his car. Airbags immediately deflates after initial inflation, so there would be no need to cut it away.
