The City Of London Skyscraper, 122 Leadenhall, AKA 'The Cheesegrater' is shown in a flyby establishing shot. We then switch to an interior office with a view of the City skyline in which 122 Leadenhall is missing, not yet constructed.
As Kate is walking to the restaurant, she is wearing black high heels. After the incident at Hyde Park, she's suddenly wearing beige high heels.
Near the end of the movie when Kate knocks The Watchmaker off the side of the building, you see The Watchmaker's hand slip off of the edge but in the next shot his hand is still holding on.
After the restaurant explosion, the men in charge of the investigation comment that they wouldn't be able to find any information from the security cameras as they were fried by the explosion. Anyone with minimal knowledge of how security camera works knows that there is no information to extract from the camera itself, since the footage is stored on a server's hard drive in a secure location. It seems the writers of this movie are technologically inept.
Kate Abbott goes to the airport and buys a plane ticket from London to New York on the busiest travel time of the year without any problems. So does the "watchmaker".
Nash's Steyr HS .50 cal sniper rifle has a characteristic 'floating barrel' which aids accuracy. Nash, on two occasions, lays the barrel itself on a wall to make a shot - no experienced sniper or shooter would do such.
At the end of the staircase scene you can hear someone say, "Good shot".
Just after the explosion in the restaurant and Kate Abbott is asking for help we see Nash pull a gun on her. Kate Abbott runs back into the gift shop and battles to get the rear fire exit open. However one shot the door clearly has US style locks on it including a "Gemmy Proof" lock which are rare in the UK. After she gets out and door swings open you can see the one of the locks is missing.
During the scenes on the London Underground that are supposed to be at King's Cross St Pancras the rolling stock are of Jubilee type carriages that do not run to that station. It is filmed on old platforms at Charing Cross Underground station. Also the famous LU "Roundel" sates "Kings Cross", the station is always stated as "Kings Cross St Pancras".
The beginning scenes of the move give times as UTC and GMT. While they can be interchanged, doing so in the movie is confusing and unnecessary.
Crew or equipment visible
After the explosion at the restaurant, the ram that flips the car onto its roof is clearly visible behind the front wheel.
Just after the explosion at the cafe, there is a silver Audi that gets blown over in the explosion. As it lands you can clearly see the gas fired cylinder "ejection" piston that forces cars to roll in SFX.
Errors in geography
The explosion at the block of flats is followed by a scene in Ambassadors office with a TV news report of gas explosion in Tower Hamlets. This was filmed at the Heygate Estate that is in the London Borough of Southwark not Tower Hamlets.
For allegedly being very good at 'field craft' and certainly familiar with all technological means of locating and identifying people; Kate never tries to alter her appearance (well, except for the "Clark Kent" glasses in the airport) to fool visual observation.
(at around 1h 11 mins) While Kate (Mila) was searching for information on her laptop, you can notice "Pharmaceutical" misspelled "Pharmacuetical".
