Revealing mistake: When the 2nd BMW SUV is blown up on the dock, you can see the underside of the vehicle which reveals how they removed the drive shaft to help reduce the weight of it in order to flip it easier. There are also 2 jets of white gas seen coming from 2 pipes under the rear bumper which are what launched the vehicle end over end.jerimiah
Revealing mistake: Horvath is trapped in the bathroom mirror, and after knocking on the mirror from the inside, a boy comes over. You can see that the shadow from the boy's shoulder is falling on Horvath, and when he turns and falls over, if you watch closely, you can see that the boy bumps into Horvath's arm. This is because the boy actor is standing in front of Horvath's actor to achieve the mirror effect.
Revealing mistake: When Salt sits on the helicopter there are two of the same cuts with Salt looking through the heli's window with yawning guy in the background. Cuts split by the view of Washington DC.
Revealing mistake: Throughout the movie, people getting shot almost always don't have the shot angles line up with how they appear. This is especially obvious in the end scene with Hit Girl shooting the gangsters: she might shoot someone at an angle from the side, but the shot appears to have come from directly behind the person.
Revealing mistake: At the end scene when the Sheriff is escaping in the truck away from the nuclear blast, the truck begins to flip through the air. While it is flipping we see under the vehicle and can see the hole they use to launch a post to help flip the vehicle for the stunt. A brief puff of white smoke also emanates from that hole briefly during the flip.jerimiah
Revealing mistake: The handheld device that Bob uses to adjust the satellite antennae is actually a very common label maker and printer sold in most Walmart stores.
Revealing mistake: When Jensen is investigating the missing 4 million dollars from the account, we see the screen on his laptop. Among other things, it shows a picture of Fadhil's passport, which looks like it has a watermark on it, readable as http://slawek.com. Indeed, going to http://www.worldpassports.org/americas/pages/bolivia.htm you will find the passport pictured there. (01:01:35)bugmenot
Revealing mistake: There are obvious differences in the appearance of the "Ironman" and "War Machine" suits throughout the movie, as pertains to them showing a digitally-rendered suit vs an actual physical suit that the actor/stuntmen wear. Whenever a real suit is shown on an actor, it is quite bulky, most noticeably around the abdomen/stomach areas, and the size of the head-piece.The digital versions are much slimmer in the abdomen areas and the headpieces are much smaller and more compact.
