Mistakes

Continuity mistakes:

May accepts a glass of champagne from Tomas, despite holding one a moment earlier.

The window in the hotel was broken by the henchman flying through it. But when the room falls into the water the glass is fine.

The blood on May Munro's lower lip disappears and reappears during a confrontation with Ned Trent.

When Ray and May are escaping his compound in the escape tunnel, it shows part of the concrete ceiling give way and collapse on the tunnel floor. The next time we see them, moments later, the escape tunnel is clear of all debris.

The letters on the hotel room door change size and style when seen from the inside after the door is opened.

Ray Quick puts explosives in the crack of the window, in the hotel. But when the bombs go off there is no explosion from the explosive in the window.

Factual errors:

When Ned's team first walks into the hotel room, the standard Ma Bell message "Your call cannot be completed as dialed. Please check the number..." can be heard from the off-hook phone. A few seconds later, it changes to the more logical "If you'd like to make a call, please hang up and...." In either case, however, the Ma Bell messages would not be heard through a phone connected to a hotel switchboard.

Revealing mistakes:

Obvious stunt double at the bridge explosion.

When May is dropping her clothes on the floor of her apartment, she is dropping them on an obvious floor mark.
