Continuity

Peter and Alice, invited to attend the charity event, can be seen sitting at their table at the party before they even entered the room.

Continuity

The Polaroid which terry examines with a magnifying glass shows Peter smiling slightly. The picture Alice & Janice look at has his mouth closed in a grimace (the plot makes an issue of why he isn't smiling in the photo).

Continuity

In the final scene, when the helicopter is returning from the retrieval mission, Meg walks up to greet her husband, and she has a huge fever blister on the right side of her upper lip. Later, in that same scene, the fever blister disappears.

Revealing mistakes

Even though the movie takes place in a fictional South American country, the Ecuadorian flag can be seen flying in many places.

Continuity

Bowman empties his gun and the slide stays cocked back because it's empty. In the next scene the slide is back in position, but Bowman wouldn't know how to do this to a gun, having not used one before.

Revealing mistakes

Bowman speaks into the wrong side of his Nokia 9110 Communicator.

Continuity

Alice slaps Thorne's left cheek, but when he walks in to the house, he is massaging his right cheek.

Continuity

The ferry's position in relation to the overhead bridges changes when Terry is traveling on the river Thames, talking to his superior.

Revealing mistakes

When two ELT soldiers fly into the air after Thorne detonates a claymore mine, wires are visible aiding the stuntmen.

Incorrectly regarded as goofs

The grenade Dino throws into the hut is a noise/flash distraction device, commonly called a "flashbang." Flashbang grenades do not detonate and fragment like antipersonnel grenades, so it would be normal to see the spent grenade body lying on the floor.

Continuity

Right before the shot of Peter Bowmen stopping his car at the roadblock he is wearing sunglasses. In the very next shot, you can see in the rearview mirror that he is not.

Continuity

When Peter is photographed by his captors, his feet are completely red, covered in blood. Then when the instant-photograph is being looked at in the hotel room by Terry, Alice and Janis, there is less blood and injury visible on his feet.

Audio/visual unsynchronised

The marching band drummer, while standing in front of the grandstand.

Continuity

There's a red bucket visible when Peter and Kessler work in the camp, just before Peter grabs the map. It changes position and even vanishes briefly.

Continuity

When Terry, Dino and the others approach the guerilla camp, takes with rain and without rain are mixed up.

Continuity

When the rebels arrive at the camp with Peter in their midst, you see the guy with the yellow shirt, Alex, as his fellows help him to lie down on a table. A short while later Alex arrives at the table, helped by his mates. And later still we see him dismount the mule.

Continuity

Towards the end when Terry and Alice are kissing, Terry is holding Alice's head. When the camera swings to the other side, Alice is holding Terry's head.

Continuity

When Kessler is standing at the top of the waterfall (shown in a long shot), he clutches at his injured shoulder. However he has not been shot yet. He gets hit in the shoulder during the next (close-up) camera shot.
