Early in the film, Bishop gives his father's watch to Gina as a remembrance of him and his promise to return and rescue her. Throughout most of the film after that, he does not have the watch on his wrist until there are underwater scenes and shots of him trying to sneak on board Crane's boat near the end. The watch is plainly visible since his forearm is in the foreground.

When Bishop places the pack of cigarettes, gum and tin of shark repellent down at the prison checkpoint, the tin changes position from the left-hand page of the guard's book, to the right side, and back again between shots. Strangely the guard searches scrutinizes the cigarettes and gum, but never touches or opens the tin.

About 42 minutes into the movie we see Bishop playing what appears to be chess. It's a little hard to tell because the pieces are hand-carved and the board is cardboard and magic marker. Chess boards are 8 squares high by 8 squares wide. The board they are playing on is 9x9.

At 23:10 Bishop points out a boat on the water watching them. Gina asks "where?" Bishop replies , "Two men in a Zodiak, out on the ocean." In the shot where he spots them with binoculars at 22:40 there are three people in the boat, which is not a Zodiak. The Zodiak is a rubber boat with twin inflatable pontoons. The men are in a Bayliner-style fiberglass hull boat.

Plot holes 

At the end of the film, Gina is rescued immediately after she escapes the yacht. She is then shown being loaded into an ambulance at some docks while the wreckage of the yacht is being offloaded as well. Unless her rescuer wandered around the ocean for many hours, if not days, there is no way a salvage ship could be sent out to the yacht, pick up the pieces and return to the docks at the same time that Gina does.

Revealing mistakes 

When he's getting the brief for the Sydney job he's told "In downtown Sydney, atop a 58 storey high rise ...", but when Crain listens to the news article afterward it says "Billionaire Adrian Cook plunged 76 floors ...." How did the building suddenly gain an extra 18 floors?
