Continuity mistake: When Davian and Hunt are fighting in front of Julia, Davian slugs Hunt on the floor and walks for the gun. Hunt is twice seen lying on a floor with no glass, the second shot a close-up showing his face and clean arm. In the next shot, as Hunt rallies and goes to rise from the same body position, he's lying in piles of glass and has glass stuck to his arm.
Continuity mistake: In the bridge scene Ethan runs to the IMF truck to retrieve the G36 gun case. He shoves it out across the ground and flees to escape the approaching missile. When the missile strikes, the explosion knocks Ethan against a car, and the gun case is blown further across the ground and appears to come to rest right next to him; yet in the next shot he has to run several steps to get to it.

Continuity mistake: When Ethan is offered the task and refuses, he is told that just in case he has a change of heart, that the team will be "wheels up at sunrise". When he arrives the next day, the sun is much more in the position of late morning.
Factual error: In the Shanghai scene, the shot immediately following Ethan's parachute getting caught on the light post shows a tall skyscraper with a pyramid peak in the background. This tower is called Tomorrow Square, located in the Jing'An District, and is nowhere near the Pudong financial district where all action is supposed to be happening. (01:29:35)wezil18
Factual error: In the scene where Davian gets hit by a truck, there is a shot of a taxi afterwards. The Chinese characters read 'bus' rather than 'taxi'.
Trivia: The scene in which Julia brings Ethan back to life is copied almost identically from the scene in "Lost" (Director JJ Abrams' hit TV show) where Charlie is brought back to life. Incidentally, you can hear the "Lost" music played throughout the show, most noticeable when Davian is about to pick up the gun to kill Julia.
