Goofs

  • Around 00:33:06, Will is talking to his wife by phone but on this shot from behind, his jaw isn't moving, we clearly see he's not talking.
  • When Will has taken the police motorcycle, he begins to head towards a yellow car, and in a first shot he passes the car at great speed, but in the shot directly afterward, he appears re-positioned back to when he first started to pass the car, and the speed he's going is much lower.
  • During the sand barge shootout scene, the police cars are shot at, however, in the later scenes when they are driving towards the end of the pier there is no damage to any of the vehicles.
