John (Adkins) wakes up from a coma to discover his wife and daughter were slaughtered in a brutal home invasion. Haunted by images of the attack, he vows to kill the man responsible, Luc Deveraux (Van Damme). While John tries to piece his reality back together, things get more complicated when he is pursued by a relentless UniSol (Arlovski). As John gets closer to Deveraux and the rouge army of genetically enhanced warriors led by back-from-the-dead leader Andrew Scott (Lundgren), John discovers more about himself and begins to call into question everything he believed to be true.

Just as John's car flips you can clearly see bursting to the left the blow canister which aids the flip.

Miscellaneous
After Magnus vomits, as he exits the house we can see his vehicle is running already - there is vapor emitting from the exhaust pipe. Yet when he gets in the car he has to turn the ignition key.

Continuity
During the fight between John and Devereaux, the hole in John's forehead switches from the right side to the left then back to the right.

Continuity
During the fight in the sporting goods store, the blue-shirted employee behind John disappears and reappears between shots.

Continuity
During the final fight, the machete becomes embedded in the wall. Luc pulls it free, but it is not in his hands when he kicks John in the face. In the following shot he is holding it again.

Continuity
When John and Magnus fight in Sarah's hotel room, Magnus uses the axe to pin John against the wall. The orientation of the axe head changes between shots (facing up, then down, then up again).

Continuity
Just before Magnus slams into a civilian car, he turns the steering wheel left and leans into the turn. However on the following shot the wheels are turned straight ahead and Magnus is sitting upright.

Continuity
Just after the turn, John slams into Magnus's vehicle and causes his own rear passenger window to shatter. Just as the tire is blown and they go onto the next few shots, it's clear that the same window has now repaired itself, even after the car rolls and crashes.

Continuity
Magnus aims the shotgun right at Sarah, through the window, and fires, but the front tire gets shot out instead.

Continuity
As the car flips, you can see the front bumper has somehow repaired itself completely.

Continuity
During the start of a conversation between Dr. Colin, Miles and John, Miles is leaning forward asking a question. In the following shot shows Miles is bolt upright, sitting away from John and next to Dr. Colin.

Continuity
During the car chase the rear right hand tire of the black SUV is clearly shredded and running on the rim, but in the next shot the tire is full again.

Continuity
The same water tower and Christian Street Furniture warehouse in Baton Rouge, LA are passed repeatedly during the car chase.

Continuity
When Magnus rams into John's car with his truck they pass the "Christian Street Furniture" warehouse. 10 - 15 seconds later they pass "Christian Street Furniture" again.


When John climbs down the shaft in the woods, the back of his shirt changes from a bloody line down the middle, to almost completely soaked through with blood.

Continuity
When John pulls up to Isaac's apartment complex the Ford emblem is busted out on his SUV but in the next scene when John is driving away the Ford emblem is visibly unharmed.

Continuity
Just after John has the device cut from the back of his neck, blood is trickling down the front of his neck and onto his white vest, staining it. In later shots the blood stain is gone.

Continuity
When Deveraux 'grabs' John through the mirror, John's 'chopped-off' pinky on his left hand is visible as he tries to break free. In the next scene, as he wakes up, you can see his 'missing' fingers folded into a fist beneath the bloody bandages.
Trivia:
