In the scene where Cole is in a firefight in the forest, he starts off with a mp5 without a scope and he goes back and forth with an AK-47 with a scope.
After Cole has been shot by the "Scar sniper" he soon appears to have blood coming form his mouth. In subsequent shots, the blood appears and disappears.
Once Cole and Pavel come above ground Cole is to be "on com's" but half the time Cole has his headset on and half the time it's missing.
About 10 minutes into the film, we see a jet landing at, the screen title tells us, "Aviano AFB, Sicily." Except that Aviano AFB is hundreds of miles away in NE Italy.
Wrong language. The Serbians in the movie all speak Hungarian instead of Serbian.

Colonel McKenna wears shooting qualification badges under his ribbons, which are never worn with the short-sleeved "C" uniform.
The movie is supposed to take place after Milosevic was overthrown in 2000. at one point in the movie Sophia says that the assassination of Valstoria would prompt the Serbian government to denounce the assassination as a result of a 'UN atrocity'. However, Serbia was readmitted into the UN after Milosevic was overthrown. Serbia, which was the Federal Republic of Yugoslavia at the time, was suspended from the UN because of it's support for Serb rebels in the neighboring nations of Croatia and Bosnia, where civil wars occurred in the first half of the 1990's.
The rifle that Beckett identifies as a German Mauser is actually a Russian Mosin-Nagant M91/30.
In one situation, a tram smashes through a barricade of 2 police cars, causing one of the police cars to explode tremendously. Petrol is not volatile enough to cause a large explosion.
When Cole walks in to meet Beckett for the 1st time he's shown wearing a Marine Force Recon shirt. In the movie Cole is a former Army sniper while Force Recon is a Marine unit.
During the firefight with the black clad "ninja" assault team, one of the "ninjas" is shown to have an M203 grenade launcher attached to his M16. When he fires it at the running Cole he fires three times in a span of about 5 seconds. This should not have been possible, as the M203 is not a semi-automatic weapon. It is a single shot grenade launcher with a rate of fire of about 5-7 rounds per minute (about one shot every ten seconds).

As Pavel, Cole and Beckett make their way to Simand, a helicopter with the letters 'SFOR' are engraved in a helicopter flying over the three men. The SFOR was a NATO-led task force meant to stabilize Bosnia after its war came to an end, and the men that were aboard the helicopter were Serbian special forces that were tasked with capturing or killing the three men.
In the scene where Beckett is talking with the CIA agent, when he walks out of the door holding the jug, you can see all of his fingers on his right hand, but his pointer finger is supposed to be missing.
