Continuity mistake: When Stella is driving in the cable van, the picture seen through her camera shows the view over the steering wheel, but when we see her, the steering wheel is much higher than the camera and would be obscuring the view.

Character mistake: In the ice-hockey scene Bibi says: "They say that he is a defector from East Germany." That fits very poorly with the statement during the biathlon scene, where he is referred to as "The East German Champion".

Plot hole: Sonny hides among the 1000 robots in the big store room. They are all placed in very straight rows. Sonny would not be able to take over another robot's place in the grid (when he starts running we see a large robot-sized gap) without getting another robot to move. And while Will Smith is running around the rows, he would have noticed if the others moved to make room.

Revealing mistake: The scene where Frank is chased across the roof tops is shot indoors. First, the light and shadows are very bright - but in the outdoors scenes it is cloudy, and there are no clear shadows. Second, the shadows show almost horizontal lighting - a position the sun does not have in Venice in late morning.
Factual error: In the boat chase on the Canal, Frank turns the wheel on his boat, and the boat turns sharply. But the boat is being dragged and the engine is not running. Turning the wheel will then make very little (or no) difference in its direction. Motorboats turn by the propeller turning, not with a rudder like a sailing boat.
Factual error: When Frank and Elise arrive in Venice, they sail from the train station to a hotel which is also located on the Grand Canal (from the balcony we see the Rialto Bridge). However just after leaving the station, we see Saint Marc's Square from their boat from the other side of the lagoon. That is very far from the station - and not on the way to that hotel.

Other mistake: In the opening boat chase in Venice, the safe is supposedly represented by a metal pipe structure covered by cloth. But it doesn't flap or wave in the wind at all. On the contrary it has completely straight sides. It is quite clear that there must be a box underneath.
