Other mistake: When Somerset goes back to the man's house alone, he cuts a sticker on the door with his switch-blade to get in. The first error is the sticker is on the inside and it says "Keep Out." The best part about it is the door opens inward. How did they put the sticker on the inside and then exit? (00:20:45)

Strange Days picture

Continuity mistake: This is the car chase scene, where Ralph Fiennes and Angela Bassett are in a limo being chased by two bad cops in a pickup. Early in the scene, you have the view from inside the pickup when it rams the limo from the rear passenger side, and you can clearly see bullet holes in the glass and rear of the limo (no weapons fired yet). Then a few seconds later in the scene, you can see the rear of the limo with no damage. Moments later, you see one of the cops firing an automatic weapon, and subsequently witnessing the holes being made in the limo.
