Deliberate mistake: The Glock pistol the dying Russian assassin attempts to fire clicks, symbolizing it's out of ammo, or had a malfunction such as failure to ignite primer which is extraordinarily unlikely. His action symbolized a dry weapon. When a modern handgun in particular a Glock runs dry, the slide stop lever engages the slide and leaves the slide open until a new magazine is inserted and the slide is racked or the slide stop is pushed down. On a dry Glock the trigger can't be pressed until the slide is cocked. (00:16:45 - 00:17:30)
Factual error: In the nighttime hostage rescue scene, the rescue helicopter has its right and green navigation lights on, which are designed to show other aircraft where it is and which direction it is heading. This of course would not be the case while staging a clandestine operation in hostile territory.
