When Amanda was taking a photo, the camera phone was held in the landscape position, but when Peter was taking the photo for them, he held it in the portrait position. Later, when Bryan was reviewing the photos, all the photos were in the landscape position, including the one supposedly taken by Peter.
Crew or equipment visible
Errors in geography
When Bryan is in the apartment of his friend the corrupt French policeman, they use the policeman's computer to check on the identity of St. Clair, the man who is auctioning Bryan's daughter. The computer is shown as having a QWERTY keyboard which is not the type used in France. It should be an AZERTY layout which is the type used in France.
Some men at the construction site wear hard hats that are not available or permitted in France. But seeing how the site is also the place for some VERY illegal trafficking, narcotics and prostitution crimes, it is not unlikely the men working there were also criminals and/or illegal immigrant workers who had brought their own equipment.
Bryan's diversion with the small walkie to avoid being caught when the French agents detect his cell phone location cannot work in the way depicted. First off, walkies usually are PTT, so either you can listen or you can talk, but to change from one mode to the other, you need to push a button. Even if these walkies were to transmit and receive at the same time without hitting a PTT button though, Bryan would have to either dial or pick up the phone before he could start moving to his alternate location. That alternate on the other roof was too far for him to have reached it in the few seconds that pass between the start of the conversation and the first shot of static Bryan with his binoculars. But even if they had shown him on the move rather than observing, the French agents would have known he needed to stay in range of the low-power walkie for the trick to work, so he could not be more than a few dozen yards away.
When Mills is trying to get past St. Clair's bouncer to the auction, he shows the bouncer Pitrel's ID with his picture on it. The bouncer tells him his name is "not on the list." However, the ID card clearly shows the picture facing Mills rather than the bouncer, so presumably Pitrel's name would not be visible to the bouncer.
Incorrectly regarded as goofs
When Bryan is chasing the sheik's barge along the Seine in his car, he appears to be traveling at high rate of speed alongside the barge. The barge would likely be traveling around 5 knots, about the speed of a light jog. The speed limit for boats on the Seine is 15 knots, (about 17 mph), so even if the boat could somehow travel at the maximum speed for the river (which would be impossible for a boat like that), it would still be at a crawl for a car.
