Goofs

Audio/visual unsynchronised 

Günther Bachmann was alone and pondering the situation while sipping an alcoholic beverage over ice. The sound editor overdubbed that of a man slurping or taking a large swallow of his beverage while the sound of the ice cubes clinking with the glass is incompatible with the small, melted pieces of ice that can be observed in the glass.

During the first meeting between Annabel Richter and Thomas Brue, Richter hands Brue a hand-written an account number on a piece of paper that was torn from her (Daytimer's) personal organizer. The sound editor overdubbed the sound of a perforated piece of paper being removed from a pad. When the note is seen by the audience, it is a piece of paper that had been bound by a hole punch and would have made a different sound when torn from its source.

Character error 

When Richter presents Brue with the account number, the handwriting does not appear to have been written in the German style of handwriting (in particular, the number '1' is written as a straight line, rather than a hooked, like "7").

Continuity 

Both the folder and the file card associated with the safe-deposit box indicate that it is number 3148, but Brue reads the number aloud as 3448, and that is also how the English subtitle identifies the box number.

When Mr. Brue approaches Abdullah's house in his Mercedes SL, a red warning triangle is visible in the driver's mirror, implying that there are cars or other objects in the blind spot of the mirror. However, in the next shot the car is shown to be the only one on the street.

When Issa cuts off his facial hair he leaves quite a bit. When he is with the lawyer he has a lot less, as though he has been professionally shaved.

When Annabel walks into the bar, greets some friends, and meets Günther, her hair is gathered at the back of her head in thick locks. A short while later, when she meets with Tommy at The Atlantic hotel, there is much less hair drawn to the back of Annabel's head.

Errors in geography 

When jumping into the U-Bahn at "Landungsbrücken" on that track the next station is "Baumwall" and not "Reeperbahn". When you want to reach "Reeperbahn" you have to go underground (S-Bahn) at "Landungsbrücken" and travel in the opposite direction one station. Also it is almost impossible to play tricks with those train doors in the way they did.

Factual errors 

At the beginning of the film, the subtitle reads: "In 2001 Mohammad Atta conceived and planned the 9/11 attacks from the port city of Hamburg, Germany..." Mohamed [the correct spelling of his name] Atta went to the United States in June 2000, and never returned to Hamburg.
The expression Insha Allah (If God's Will) is a term use in an occasion which is yet or about to happen, much in contrary of how Issa expressed for the news of bombing.
