Plot hole: When Guy kisses her, she questions how he did it - stating no "kiss" function existed in the game. However, later on after the reboot she proceeds to kiss him (rather than him kiss her).

Suggested correction: As one of the principal developers of the simulation engine, Millie recognizes that Guy is a non-player character (NPC) who merely obeys a loop of coded actions, and he's supposedly incapable of acting outside of his code. So, she means that NPCs can't just arbitrarily kiss players. Players can do whatever they want, but NPCs are mindless robots. At that point, however, she doesn't realise that Guy's Artificial Intelligence has evolved to independent self-awareness, allowing him to act outside of his code.

Key's actually says "There isn't a button for that" when Millie brings it up. There would be no way for her to initiate, as her in game actions would be limited to the controls offered.

By the time Millie kisses Guy, we know that the Free City simulation engine was already undergoing Artificial Intelligence evolution, essentially rewriting its own code, allowing Guy (and other NPCs) to achieve independent self-awareness. It follows that Free City was probably rewriting its player code, as well, making all sorts of new and startling functions possible for players and NPCs alike.

Factual error: The plot's main conceit hinges upon coders, the art department, and the user-end network team constantly working live at the same time in the same room, as well as developers actively writing code, rebooting servers, and chasing players in-game to get rid of problematic players. No real game company could operate this way. Game content patches wouldn't change the network experience, and in-game aesthetic changes like the ones they make in seconds would require weeks if not months of development.

Other mistake: In the frame you can see the girl is playing on a newer Macbook, she is using a wired headset but the headset is not plugged into the laptop, you can also see she is using a wired gaming mouse, and the USB cable is just sitting there not connected to anything. The Macbook is USB-C only and the mouse is USB-A.

Continuity mistake: Near the start during the 1st bank raid, his hands change position while lying down on the ground talking to the guard.

Guy: I'm not gonna be the good guy... I'm gonna be the great guy.

Answer: The movie was completely finished over a year ago. It was the pandemic that delayed it. So it was the finished product that was released.
