Visible crew/equipment: When Dewey is introduced and has a phone call with Jeffers about the leak, he is packing away files in a briefcase. On his desk there is a pad of paper beneath Dewey's mobile, and the scripted lines for Dewey's side of the phone conversation are handwritten on the top sheet, not being removed from set prior to filming. (00:08:25)


Factual error: When Bourne first arrives in London, the Audi he is driving is quite obviously left hand drive. In the UK his car would be a right hand drive.

Visible crew/equipment: After the police truck crashes into the casino, Jason Bourne gets out of his car and continues his pursuit. Walking down a hill, the camera and operator are shown in the wet reflecting concrete.


Factual error: In the car chase, the SWAT truck throws cars in a traffic jam upwards and to left and right, as if it had a large, pointed snowplough type structure mounted to its front bumper. The front of the truck is squared off and blunt - it would just shorten the car in front - as some of us know from tail-ending experience.

Suggested correction: The truck was moving at high speed, which would have applied a large amount of momentum on the bunch of cars in front of it. I agree that the destruction is a little exaggerated, but it is possible for a car to be sent flying in some direction when an armored vehicle rams it at high speed.

Continuity mistake: In the chase scene between the black Dodge Charger and the Police SWAT truck, the damage to the left side of the Charger alternates frequently between damaged and un-damaged.


Other mistake: In one of the car chase scenes, Bourne has to turn left down a street because the police have blocked the road ahead. Soon afterwards, he has to turn left down another street because the police have blocked it off too. The same footage is used again.

Factual error: Virtually every time anyone is seen hacking with an IP address on screen, the address includes the number 256. IP addresses only go up to 255.

Suggested correction: The entry is technically correct, but the producers have probably used 256 as it is a null IP address value, just like all phone numbers in US dramas have a null value 555 area code. This prevents viewers trying to use the number displayed.


This isn't a valid correction. The 555 exchange isn't a null value, it's just not used for the public, but it's still a valid exchange. A 256 IP address isn't possible, so it would be equivalent of using a exchange like 000 or 55.


Thank you, a fair point abut 555, but the probable reason why IP 256 was used is still valid.


Factual error: When Jason Bourne drives into Bally's on one side then exits the other side he goes right from Bally's into the Riviera. The Riviera (before it was torn down) and Bally's were a couple of miles apart from each other.

Factual error: It makes no sense for Alicia Vikander to ask the Director of National Intelligence to appoint or select her for the CIA Director position. Both are appointed by the President of the United States with US Senate advice and consent.

Factual error: When Bourne goes to Berlin, he supposedly heads for Kollwitzplatz. There is even a street sign in the shot to reinforce that connection. Problem is that Kollwitzplatz is in Prenzlauer Berg and Bourse is actually heading down Falckensteinstrasse. You can see the Oberbaumbrücke in the background. Presumably, Kollwitzplatz, as a famous iconic location seemed like a better choice. If you compare it to google street view, you can see how they changed the traffic signs. (00:43:47)

Factual error: In Vegas they are attending Exocon 2016. Heather Lee gets a text message from Bourne to meet him at the north elevators, the date on her phone is Tuesday 20 October. That date occurred in 2015, not 2016.

Other mistake: The asset is speaking on his cellphone, but he's holding it upside down - you can see the camera. (01:21:54)

Jason Bourne: I volunteered because of a lie. They said my father was killed by terrorists! He wasn't killed by terrorists, was he?
