Anachronisms 

The movie is set in 2008, as evidenced by political ads, but a late model (2009 or later) white Mazda sedan can be seen on the street in one of the scenes.

Character error 

At one point in the movie Frankie mentions a bar in Haverhill. He pronounces it "haver-hill" but anyone living in New England knows it is pronounced "hay-vrul".

Continuity 

In the bar scene with Jackie and Mickey, the drinks on the table seem to be constantly changing. The levels in the glasses change, the number of glasses on the table change and the arrangement of the glasses change.
After using his shotgun and putting it in the getaway car, Jackie wipes down the car of evidence but fails to retrieve his gun and his fingerprints on it.
When Trattman's car is hit by the tow truck, a close-up shows his head hitting and cracking the windshield. The next exterior shot shows an intact windshield.

Just before his beat-down in the rain by Steve and Barry, Markie is sitting in the back seat of the car, completely dry. In the very next scene, having just stepped out of the car, his hair is plastered to his head and his shirt is soaking wet.

When the brothers Caprio drive upon the road and park at the right side of the road in which Markie Trattmans house is set, a white luxury car is seen on the left side of the road. After a dialogue between the Carpio brothers a next shot of the street is shown when Markie Trattman drives down the road to park at the left side, this white luxury car disappears.

Miscellaneous 

When John Amato drives up to the lady's apartment to drop her off, he gets out on the right hand side of the Cadillac. When he returns to the car to drive away, he gets in on the left hand side where he is shot by Jackie.

Revealing mistakes 

The sawn-off shotgun Russell has in the robbery scene would fail to work correctly, as there is no barrel. If fired there would be no compression leading to the powder charge not burning correctly. It wouldn't be effective as a weapon.

Spoilers

The goof item below may give away important plot points.

Revealing mistakes 

When Jackie shoots Trattman with a pistol through the car window, the ejected shell casing from the pistol is clearly that of a blank, as can be seen by the crimped end of the cartridge casing.
