Continuity mistake: In the photo booth scene, Face gives Sosa a phone. Later on, after Hannibal had made a call to Sosa to set up a meeting, Sosa sees an incoming phone call from Face, on the phone presumably given by Face. That phone is a Nokia E71, which is a normal candybar phone. But when she receives the call, the candybar phone suddenly becomes a slider phone.

Question: I know the storyline is not the most important part of this film, but why is Face making the final plan for the climax at the LA harbour and not Hannibal?

Answer: Throughout the movie, Face has shown to be impulsive, and constantly deviating away from Hannibal's plan, in fact Face several times screws up because he hasn't followed the plan. Come the end of the movie however, and Face proves to Hannibal that he can tone down the impulsiveness, come up with a plan, stick to it, and see success, and Hannibal's comment to Face after he makes that plan are along the lines of "Good work kid".
