Continuity mistake: At the beginning of the movie, Dolph Lundgren throws down the battering ram which has "Knock Knock" written on it. Shortly after one of their vehicles reaches the top of the ramp and one of the enemy jeeps falls off the roof Jet Li screams "Shut up, Gunner!" at Dolph Lundgren. Just before he screams, the "Knock Knock" battering ram is back in the retracted position. A few seconds later, it is facing the front again. (00:03:50)

Continuity mistake: When the villains get the last of the plutonium out of the cache, we see one villain shoot the chain suspending a concrete cap; causing it to fall and close the hole. A short time later, we see Maggie exclaim that the plutonium is gone. The cap could not have been lifted because all the miners were taken away, yet the cap is gone and we can see into the cache.

Question: When Maggie asks Barney if he still thinks about Billy after his death, he says "We keep it light until we have to get dark. Then we go pitch black." What exactly does Barney mean by this?

Answer: "We keep it light" refers to their mood. They joke around and tease each other and have fun. "Till we go dark" is when they get serious for killing. "We go pitch black." Meaning as dark and brutal killing machines as possible.
