Goofs:
Factual Mistake
A psychiatric facility would not put someone in a straight jacket for delusions or hallucinations. It's called "unreasonable restraint and seclusion". If the patient were a threat to his or her self or others, the person would be restrained.

Factual Mistake
During the modern day battle with the Dragon forces, one police officer is seen firing on them from his car. The car is a Daewoo, which isn't used by any police forces in the US.

Factual Mistake
A character incorrectly refers to the US Bank building in downtown LA as the "Liberty" Tower, when in fact the Tower is actually known as the Library Tower. The LA Public Library is across the street and gave up the air rights for the Tower to be built (which helped to rebuild the Library after two devastating fires). This was possibly a deliberate error, as the building is occasionally incorrectly referred to as the Liberty Tower (most notably by President George W. Bush identifying it as a possible terrorist target). However, a local resident of Los Angeles would most likely not make this mistake.

Factual Mistake
Apaches are designed to be survivable against 23mm cannon fire. It is highly unlikely they would explode from the damage they suffered in the movie (crashing into a building and the street), especially not in a delayed manner (as the fuel tanks are armored.)

Continuity
"Older" Ethan's eyes are brown, or perhaps dark green. In the scene where Ethan as a young boy is looking into the light from the magical chest, you can clearly see that his eyes are blue-green. This is most evident later in the same scene during the transformation from young Ethan to older Ethan.

Audio/Video Mismatch
When the leader of the soldiers is speaking, his mouth movements don't match what he's saying in Korean, and if you look closely, you can tell that he's actually speaking the English dialog given in the subtitles.

Continuity
As Ethan and Sarah are on the beach after Ethan gets her out of the Hospital, Sarah is dressed in hospital gown and slippers, she slips off her slippers and than walks down the beach. In the long shot she is wearing her slippers and than the next shot is a close up of both of them and in the lower left corner you see her slippers sitting on the beach where she took them off.
Trivia:
The music associated with Muraki and his army makes extensive use of the "Dies irae" melody, a medieval chant traditionally used in ceremonies for the dead and, since the nineteenth century, in contexts evoking the macabre and supernatural.

WILHELM SCREAM: When the dragon steps over the villager during the flashback sequence, and also later when a dragon throws a policeman into a car windshield.

This marked the first Korean production in nearly three decades to receive wide theatrical release in the United States.
