Character error 

Carter buys into the craps game for $100,000 and two stacks of 20 chips were then slid in front of him. He complains that he was given $500 chips. It would take ten stacks of $500 chips to make $100,000.

When Lee and Carter go to see Kenny, Kenny starts to make a Karate move Carter pulls out his gun and holds it Gangsta style. This is not something a trained detective would do.

When Carter is in the club singing and invites all the ladies up onto stage with him they are all wearing sequined dresses. When Lee runs out, the women around Carter are wearing beige/tan tops. In the next scene, their dresses revert to the nice dresses again.

When Lee is sitting in a car, the song "I'll be missing you" by Sean 'Diddy' Combs, starts to play on the radio. We cut away to the caller, and then back - apparently in "real time" - but now the song on the radio is almost at its end, although only 3 seconds have passed.

Toward the end of the movie, Ricky Tan stabs Steven Reign in the heart. Of course, this should cause bleeding all over the front of Reign's shirt. It should be soaked within seconds. But in multiple shots of Reign lying on the ground, there is no more blood after the small amount with the initial stab. Physiologically ridiculous.

Towards the end of the movie, when Carter asks Li what he wants when they're at the airport, an announcement is made over the PA system for a final boarding call for flight 44 to LaGuardia Airport in New York. Current regulations prohibit flights to and from LaGuardia to go further west than Denver, and they are in Las Vegas, hence an announcement for LaGuardia shouldn't be heard.

Factual errors 

When Agent Molina is explaining the situation with the printing plates and the counterfeit money to Carter and Lee, Carter asks how they manage to get into the US Mint to use the printing presses. But the US Mint makes only coins - paper money is made by the Bureau of Engraving and Printing.

When Carter is playing craps at the Red Dragon he throws a Winner 7. The dice are shown as well as the chips on the Passline. There are also chips behind the Passline, which are referred to as 'Odds' in a craps game. However, there are NO odds on a Winner 7. This is a general rule in the game of craps. Odds were shown when Carter rolled a the 7. This would result in what is called a '7 out', not a Winner 7. A 7 rolled when odds are showing would mean all wagers lose, not win.

When Steven Reign removes the printing plates from the safe, you can easily read a "100" on one of them, but the "100" (and everything else) should reversed.

When Carter is fighting Hu Li in the casino, Carter grabs the wheel from a roulette table. He grabs a hold of the center shaft which should be metal, but it bends easily to show that it is made of rubber. In the instant before he grabs it, you can also see that it is bent out of shape.
