Continuity 

(at around 48 mins) Luc decoys the soldiers with the wooden "gas station attendant" mascot. But when the truck pulls up, the mascot is still standing where it was when we first saw it. As the UniSols approach, it isn't there any more.

During the end fight, Andrew caught Luc's left leg from a front kick and twist his ankle counter clock wise in attempted to break it. Luc proceed to counter by launching a spinning split kick with his free leg to strike Andrew's face from a left to right motion. This is mechanically flawed since the strike is in contrary to direction of where the ankle is being twisted and would have cause further resistance on it.

(at around 1h 20 mins) In the canyon scene the weather is partly cloudy, however when the mobile command center falls off the cliff, the sky is clear blue. In the next shot, the sky is clear and taken near sunset, not in the afternoon.

It has been mentioned that towards the end of the film the car Luc and Veronica drive to the home of Luc's parents loses the light bar and "Sheriff" decals. This is not a continuity error, the film simply does not show the characters removing the identifying characteristics from a police vehicle while they are fugitives.

Factual errors 

The Colonel commanding the Unisols is wearing a Special Force Green Beret incorrectly. An officer wears their rank on the flash on the front of the beret, the Colonel is displaying the Special Forces branch insignia like an enlisted soldier.

Miscellaneous 

(at around 24 mins) Luc and Scott are sent to apprehend Veronica, the problem is that moments before they were sent to get her, they were naked and having their memory clearance injections. By the time they got kitted up to go get her, she would have already left and they'd have no hope of catching her.

Plot holes 

(at around 42 mins) When Luc and Veronica make their escape from the motel, they drive through the office and interrupt the motel owner's mother reading a newspaper. Are we to believe she sat and happily read the paper during the previous sequence when the motel was shot to pieces by 4 heavily armed men?

The Police prefer the element of surprise instead of moving in and Arresting Luc and Veronica, which gives them both a chance to have escaped had they boarded the bus.

Revealing mistakes 

When Veronica backs up against the harvester, the way the blades bend makes it very clear that they are made of rubber.
