Following a truck hijack in New York, five conmen are arrested and brought together for questioning. As none of them are guilty, they plan a revenge operation against the police. The operation goes well, but then the influence of a legendary mastermind criminal called Keyser Söze is felt. It becomes clear that each one of them has wronged Söze at some point and must pay back now. The payback job leaves 27 men dead in a boat explosion, but the real question arises now: Who actually is Keyser Söze?
Dean Keaton's line "If I don't get Kobayashi my way she'll get him her way", spoken to Verbal Kint by the dock, doesn't match the movement of his lips.
During the harbour scene near the end, the report of McManus's Steyr AUG is very muted and yet he has no silencer attached.
Keaton calls the Hungarian language "Russian", although it sounds nothing like it. The Verbal character corrects this.
The character of Kobayashi, when introducing himself, does not pronounce his own name correctly.
Shot of a landing Jumbo Jet (four-engined Boeing 747) becomes a twin-engined 767 or 777 a minute later.
The blood on the elevator window.

During the lineup scene, as Fenster reads the card, Keaton's right hand is over his mouth (trying to cover his laughter, see Trivia) while his left hand underneath his jacket. As the angle changes, his left hand is now on his face and his right hand is un
Level of coffee in the mugs in the interview room.
Prior to lighting the police car in fire, the lights on the car are stepped on and crushed yet in the following shots, they are intact.
An overhead shot of the police car burning shows the surrounding pavement totally dry. Seconds later as the occupants fall out of the car, the pavement is wet and puddled with water.
Hockney's position when Redfoot is leaving.
The Sig.228 dropped in the garage turns into a Browning.
Keaton's cigarette when he leaves the police station.
In the opening murder, the gunman is not wearing gloves. After the shooting, he is shown in close-up wearing gloves, dropping his cigarette. Then during his escape, while in shadow, he is visibly no longer wearing gloves. (Audio commentary reveals the clo
In the scene where Kobayashi is walking through the office building flanked by his two bodyguards, just before the camera pulls back to reveal Hockney, we see an African-American woman in a white blouse and tan slacks walking along side of Kobayashi. In t
During Verbal's interrogation, his coffee mug is empty when he takes the first sip. In the next scene, it is fine.
When the jet airliner lands at LAX, as it flies towards camera it has four engines. In the next shot as it flies away from camera the jet has two engines.
At the beginning of the police car robbery, a white van hits the back of the police car. However when the van leaves, there appears to be no damage to the front.
When Keaton is sitting on the bench in the cell after the line up telling McManus to shut up, his shirt collar alternates between being under his jacket, and outside his jacket between shots.
During Verbal's interrogation, when Dave Kujan bends over to pick up the dropped cigarette lighter, several lighting stands and a flag are visible in the background, by the desk lamp.
In the scene when the men go to ambush Mr. Kobayashi at his law offices, just after he enters the front door of the lobby with his bodyguards, crew members and lighting stands are visible in the reflection of the polished marble as the camera dollies past
(at around 12 mins) After the lineup scene when the characters are moved to the cell, as Fenster begins to pace back and forth, there is a silver microphone visible underneath the bench that Todd Hockney is laying on. Two seconds later it vanishes.
In the robbery of "New York's Finest Taxi Service", the firefighters arrive wearing Los Angeles fire helmets, not the black leather helmets used by New York.

In the opening scene when the police arrive to the dock of the burning ship, there are bodies lined up up on the pier covered in body bags labeled "S P CORONER" as in San Pedro Coroner. The Department of the Coroner is a function of Los Angeles County.
In the hospital scenes in the burn unit, the medical staff are gloved and gowned but their surgical masks are pulled down under their chins. Their masks should be covering their noses/mouths because burn victims are extremely vulnerable to infection.
During the line-up scene, as the suspects enter the line-up booth, a microphone can be seen above Hockney's position. This is a standard feature of police line-up booths.

During the lineup scene, as Fenster reads the card, Keaton's right hand is over his mouth (trying to cover his laughter, see Trivia) while his left hand underneath his jacket. As the angle changes, his left hand is now on his face and his right hand is under the jacket.
In the scene where Kobayashi is walking through the office building flanked by his two bodyguards, just before the camera pulls back to reveal Hockney, we see an African-American woman in a white blouse and tan slacks walking along side of Kobayashi. In the next cut to Kobayashi walking through the elevator corridor, if you look to the bank of elevators to the left, you'll see the same woman coming out of an elevator as if she had just come down from one of the upper floors.
In the opening murder, the gunman is not wearing gloves. After the shooting, he is shown in close-up wearing gloves, dropping his cigarette. Then during his escape, while in shadow, he is visibly no longer wearing gloves. (Audio commentary reveals the close-up hand to be that of composer/editor John Ottman).
Redfoot's bodyguard is shown wearing an army-surplus jacket with a yellow cavalry patch on the shoulder. Later, the same jacket appears on the boat as McManus is firing down a hallway.
In the scene when the men go to ambush Mr. Kobayashi at his law offices, just after he enters the front door of the lobby with his bodyguards, crew members and lighting stands are visible in the reflection of the polished marble as the camera dollies past the column.
When the police taxi service picked up the smuggler, after they were shown crossing the Verrazano Narrows Bridge, the smuggler handed the police the envelope of cash and asked if it was enough to get him to Staten Island. Having crossed the bridge, they would have already been in Staten Island. If they came from Newark Airport, they would have already been on and left Staten Island, but this wouldn't be the case as the New York City police would not have picked him up in Newark, New Jersey.
During the line-up scene, as the suspects enter the line-up booth, a microphone can be seen above Hockney's position. This is a standard feature of police line-up booths. (In some releases of the movie this is not visible because the scene has been cropped vertically to change its aspect ratio.)
The robbery of New York's Finest Taxi service is a 5-man job, done with four vans, two of which have passengers not in the driver's seat. The van in front is driven by Keaton with Verbal holding the gun when the back door opens. The van behind rear-ends the car and gunmen hold guns on the cops from the driver's side of the van on the right and the passenger side of the van on the left. Who is driving the van on the left? Three guys (Fenster, McManus, Hockney) are doing four jobs (driver rear, driver left, passenger left, driver right). It's possible Hockney (in the left van) threw it into park and quickly slid over to the passenger window. But this is Verbal's version of the story, not necessarily what actually happened. It is quite possibly his mistake, not spotted by Kujan, rather than a mistake by the filmmakers.
When Kobayashi enters the lift with his two bodyguards, Macmanus shoots them. In the next shot we see that Macmanus is sitting on top of the elevator. But the blood of the two bodyguards splashes on the elevator window which in fact should have splashed on the ground since the shots came from above. It can be argued that the blood splashed in all direction and hence came on the window, but Kobayashi who is standing just next to those bodyguards doesn't even have a drop on him.
At the opening of the film we see some injured guy lying on the ship desk and someone shooting him from just 2-3 feet away. At the end, when the story is being re-enacted, the shooter is at least 12 feet away. However, this is entirely possible as the first time the scene is shown it is implied that it is actually happening; whereas the second time, towards the end of the movie, is a retelling of the story by Roger "Verbal" Kint.
When Verbal is being physically harassed during his interrogation he shrugs off the detective with his left hand but his left hand is supposed to be paralyzed. We find out later that he's faking his palsy.
In the robbery of "New York's Finest Taxi Service", it is implied that Internal Affairs division fights corruption. However, in real life, NYPD IAD is equally likely to cover for "New York's Finest Taxi Service" as the ring itself.
Verbal Kint (Kevin Spacey) tells a federal agent Dave Kujan (Chazz Palminterri) that he took part in at least 15 separate felonies and yet he is not arrested for these confessions. The crimes include armed robbery, kidnapping and felony murder.How or why this doesn't occur is never explained in the narrative of the film.
