Factual error: Joey Blonde gets hit in April 1972. Twin Towers were only completed April 1973 but are fully lit as Sheeran goes for the hit. (01:45:11)

Suggested correction: WTC 1&2 were topped out and open to the public by late 1971 although not 100% complete on the inside until 1973.

Factual error: When plotting the trip to Detroit, it show Frank drawing his route as I 80 merging onto 75N in Toledo toward Detroit. Toledo is approximately 60 miles south of Detroit. When actually driving, they stop at a HoJo's and pass a road sign that says Columbus 64, Dayton 86 and Detroit 212 on I 75.That puts them going north on I 75 between Cincinnati and Dayton. That would have put them 160 miles south of I-80.

Suggested correction: The sign read Detroit 272, not 212. Doing a radius from each point creates a convergence of three circles pinpointing their actual location. That location is in the small town of Sparta, Kentucky.

Other mistake: In the movie it is said that they're going to fly from Port Charlotte to Detroit, then drive to a meeting and back in three hours. Port Charlotte is in Florida. That timeline would be impossible. They meant Port Clinton Michigan.

Suggested correction: They never said Port Charlotte.

Continuity mistake: When a man attacks Hoffa in court, Hoffa's son attacks him, then in the next shot he is not up from his chair. (01:22:47)

Question: I don't quite get how the Hoffa killing plays out. His son is there in the car, Frank and Jimmy go into the house, Frank shoots him, apparently not heard, then leaves the house...doesn't Chuckie Hoffa have questions? Like where his dad is for a start, let alone the gunshots he must have heard?

Chosen answer: First off his name was Chuckie O'Brian. Jimmy Hoffa wasn't his biological father, he was more in the nature of a foster father. Second, he probably knew what happened. What was Chuckie going to do? It was a sanctioned hit. And if he went to the police he would have ended up the same as Jimmy Hoffa. They put him in the middle of it to keep him quiet. If he goes after the people who did it, he's as good as dead. If he talks he could end up in jail with them, and the mafia will probably kill him anyway.
