3 Days to Kill (2014) Poster

Goofs

Audio/visual unsynchronised 

(at around 1h 40 mins) Vivi says, "We're almost there Ethan. Kill The Wolf," but her lip movement does not match the dialogue.
The bell of the purple bike is ringing several times, even when no one is around to ring it.
(at around 20 mins) In the lawyers office, the lines, "I don't want Zooey to know, at least not right away," appear to be overdubbed.

Character error 

Ethan Renner answers his phone upside down multiple times throughout the movie.
(at around 1h 24 mins) Ethan says that he had bought Chinese, then a few minutes later he is sitting eating Nigiri Sushi, which is Japanese.
Ethan walks out of his apartment without the briefcase that he took from the accountant. He gives the briefcase to Vivi in the next scene.

Continuity 

When Ethan has Mitat tied up in the bathroom, Mitat's watch switches wrists.
Ethan frequently uses a silencer on his Glock 17. In order to use a silencer, the barrel needs to have threads to screw the silencer to; which makes the barrel longer. In scenes where the silencer is being attached and used, a longer barrel is clearly visible. In scenes where the silencer is not used, the barrel is the standard length.

When Jules' daughter gave birth and Jules is carrying the child, you can see his daughter still having pregnancy bump in the background. Correction: As an obstetrician, immediately after a vaginal delivery the uterus remains an abdominal organ and distends the abdomen to about a 20-week pregnancy.
When Ethan attacks the accountant's car, the sign board on the bus reads "Pantheon" sometimes and "PANTHEON" (all caps) at other times.

Crew or equipment visible 

(at around 19 mins) The crew is reflected in a pair of sunglasses.

Errors in geography 

The hotel and the fortress in Belgrade from the beginning of the movie are on different sides of the river. It would have taken Ethan and the Albino close to an hour on foot to get from one place to the other.

Factual errors 

Elevators do not just drop when a cable connection is either lost or otherwise interrupted by shooting; the safety system invented by Elisha Graves Otis in 1852 locks the car in place and prevents it from falling.
Belgrade phone booths use pay cards, not change.
Ethan buys cough syrup labeled "COUGHT SYRUP".
When Ethan attacks the accountant's car with gas, he dons a full-face respirator to protect himself, but the respirator has no cartridges attached, meaning he would breathe in the gas himself.
Ethan is diagnosed with a glioblastoma, a type of brain cancer, which in the plot has spread to his lungs. This is medically incorrect. Glioblastomas are aggressive and spread to other parts of the brain, but they don't metastasize outside of the brain.

Before Ethan's first assignment in Paris, Vivi hands Ethan a Glock 17 and a silencer. The muzzle of the gun's barrel is not threaded and, therefore, cannot be equipped with a silencer.

Before Vivi gives Ethan the Glock 17, she places the slide in the locked-back position using the rear grip to pull back the slide; i.e., she did not manually place the locking pin in the locking grove. Locking the slide using this method can only be done if any empty magazine tube has been inserted in gun. Essentially, Vivi gave Ethan an unloaded gun.

Miscellaneous 

When Mitat first meets Ethan, he addresses him in English, not French.

Revealing mistakes 

At the beginning of the movie, in the hotel, when Ethan looks at his cell phone for "Zooey's Birthday" reminder, it's 11:00AM. Later, in the van, he looks again and it's still 11:00AM.
