Other mistake: The team is picking up Newman running down the street. He gets in the van through the back door and you hear the distinct slam of the car door. But if you watch closely the door is still open when the camera cuts to the next shot.

Continuity mistake: When the funeral cars enter the the cemetery the silver car they are watching has 3 small dents near the door handle as the car passes Tommy Lee Jones but when it stops the dents are gone.

Factual error: In the ending credits, the filming location Reelfoot Lake in Tennessee is misspelled "Realfoot".

Visible crew/equipment: In a scene where Joe Pantoliano's character is inside a SUV waiting for the signal to follow a suspect, when he opens the door of the SUV, in its reflection you can see the cameraman and the soundman.

Continuity mistake: When Gerard is shot by the fugitive in the woods we see him land in the mud and he is laying in a certain position. Next time we see him he is in a different position and the next time after that he is laying the same way we saw him the first time.

Continuity mistake: When they are in the black caprice on the bridge it has no side spotlights, but when they get to the car to the cemetery it has side spotlights.

Continuity mistake: The morning after the plane crash Tommy Lee Jones is sitting on porch of the restaurant while his crew drives up, his pants are rolled up to his knees and he has no shoes on. He then walks inside and buys a T-shirt because he has no clothes. When they hear the FBI Helicopter and all walk back outside Tommy Lee Jones has new pants and shoes on.

Other mistake: When Royce tells Gerard he's going after Roberts after noticing him in the trees he takes his finger off the transmit button on his radio halfway into telling Gerard he's going after Roberts, but Gerard responds as if he heard everything Royce said.


Character mistake: Sheridan (as Roberts) takes a job as a tow truck driver while laying low from the U.N. killings. He claims he had the gun for protection, but he must have realised if he ever had to use that weapon on the job his prints would have been run anyway, so why on earth would he take any kind of job that requires him to need a weapon if he's trying to lay low?

Audio problem: When Gerard tells Royce and Cosmo to take the left side of the van while he and Newman take the right his mouth isn't moving when he says it.


Plot hole: After the police arrest Roberts he's flagged for a federal warrant, but Lamb and Barrows don't show up to inquire about him until long after the plane crash. Shouldn't they have been there to pick Roberts up at the police station instead of being sent immediately to a federal penitentiary?


Other mistake: When Mark Sheridan is in the car before he boards the cargo ship, he looks at his girlfriend's passport. Her name is typed on the passport as Marie Rice, but if you look above it on the signature line, it is signed Mary Rice.

John Royce: I thought we didn't take our work personally.
Sam Gerard: We don't. I do.
