Taken 2

Continuity mistake: Bryan is cornered in an Istanbul alley and engages in fierce hand-to-hand combat with Albanian gangsters. Bryan takes one of the gangsters hostage, holds a gun to the gangster's face and threatens to kill him. Another gangster doesn't even hesitate to shoot Bryan's hostage in the back multiple times, and the guy drops down dead at Bryan's feet. Bryan is frozen on the spot. Camera cuts to another Albanian gangster entering the alley, holding Lenore hostage. Camera cuts to close up of Bryan, who quickly calls his daughter Kim to warn her. Camera cuts back to a full view of the alley, and the dead guy at Bryan's feet has completely vanished.

Continuity mistake: During the end car chase when Brian's daughter is driving the taxi, she keeps crashing into things, yet in the shots of the taxi after there is not damage whatsoever.

Continuity mistake: When Bryan and Kim are on the ferry in Istanbul, he is wearing a scarf. This scarf varies between being rumpled in some shots and smooth in others, depending on the camera angle. (00:20:25)

Continuity mistake: When Kim leaves the hotel pool to return to her room she leaves behind her iPad on the lounger. When the gang members come looking for her at the pool her iPad is not on the lounger anymore. (00:34:50)

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Kim Mills steals a Mercedes w124 taxi and drives her dad with it to the House where her Mum is being held hostage, you can see that it is actually 2 different w124 models that are being used. (though with similar number plates). Also in the subsequent chase scenes, the camera also alternates between the two taxis.

Continuity mistake: Lenore's neck was cut, she was hung upside down and blood was collecting in the shroud. She was rescued by Bryan. Later in the movie there's no blood, no cut, no stain.

Question: Where did Kim learn how to drive stick-shift? Is her dad that paranoid to prepare her for driving a stick-shift car?

lionhead

Chosen answer: Hardly paranoia, as such, more just giving Kim options. Kim has a noted interest in travelling abroad; cars in Europe are far more likely to be manual transmission than in the automatic-dominated US, and thus, by teaching her to drive a manual car, Mills may have made it easier for her to, say, drive a hire car on her travels. Manual transmission cars also tend to get better fuel mileage, are usually less expensive, certainly give you more control and are, in my opinion at least, more fun to drive, so there are some practicalities involved as well. Really the question is why wouldn't anybody at least learn how to drive a manual car, even if they usually end up driving an automatic.
