The train horn's sound is American, not European.

Character error 

When Bouchard speaks French, he refers to the World Health Organization in English as "WHO." A Frenchman would always refer to it as OMS (Organisation mondiale de la santé).

Zobrist said the Earth will reach a population of 32 billion in 40 years, when, in fact, at the current rate of growth, it will take 112.7 years to reach that number. Source: United Nations.

Continuity 

When Langdon opens Ignazio's e-mail, the apostrophe in "they're" is inverted (in fact, it is not an apostrophe but an okina), but when several close-ups are shown in the next shots (obviously not filmed off the same screen or any screen at all), the apostrophe is correct.

In Dr. Brooks' apartment as Langdon is attempting to open the Bio-tube with thumbprint recognition, he is seen holding the tube with his right hand until a close-up of only his thumb and the tube wherein it is being held in his left hand. The subsequent wider angle shots show the tube being held and opening in his right hand.

Errors in geography 

Langdon and Sienna take a car from Sienna's apartment to get to Palazzo Vecchio, "near the Giardini Boboli". However the location of Sienna's apartment overlooks Via del Sole, near Palazzo Strozzi, and is just a 7 minute walk from the Palazzo Vecchio, even closer than the Giardini Boboli! It would take just as long if not longer to take a car in the tight streets of Florence's historic center, which is not conducive to driving automobiles. In addition, after leaving her apartment the next scenes show them driving down Via Machiavelli in a completely different part of the city, across the Arno river.

Just before the drone searches for Langdon and Sienna outside Boboli Gardens, the time displayed on the movie screen is 8:42 A.M. A moment later, the drone's monitor screen indicates a UTC time of 08:43. However, in June, during daylight saving time, Florence, Italy is two hours ahead of UTC, so the drone clock should have read 06:43.

When the WHO jet lands in Istanbul you see the tail ID as LY-ZAB which is an Lithuania aircraft tail id. The WHO is Headquartered in Geneva, Switzerland. Thus its unlikely they would be flying a jet from Lithuania, more likely a Swiss jet.

Factual errors 

Brooks states that Langdon was 'intubated' so all the medication he received at the hospital was administered intravenously. Intubation is the insertion of a breathing/medication tube through a persons trachea, and has nothing to do with an IV.

With something that seems to be as valuable as Dantes death mark is supposed to be it is hard to fathom why the case was not alarmed.

Plot holes 

While flying to Istanbul, Elizabeth Sinskey calculates that within a few days, 95% of the world population will be infected. But, given that they don't know anything about the virus yet nor how it will be released, that's a calculation she cannot make.

Zobrist says the bacteria doubles every minute, and the cup will be full at midnight. So it is half-full at 11:59, and the world is on the brink of destruction. His solution is a virus that would cull half the world's population. The problem is that this "solution" only turns back the clock 1 minute - not much of a savings. Sienna near the end of the film fails to recognize this herself, stating that the virus will permanently solve mankind's population problem.

Revealing mistakes 

Obvious (and beardless) double for Zobrist in the opening scene of him running through the streets.

When Sienna searches for information about Zobrist, the search results include information of what other people have searched four. Five names are shown, but the photos above two female names are of men, and the photo above one male name is female.

Spoilers

The goof items below may give away important plot points.

Factual errors 

The movie shows the tomb of Enrico Dandolo as an elaborately carved, free-standing sepulcher on the ground floor of Istanbul's Hagia Sophia, right underneath its gigantic dome. But. in fact, Dandolo's tomb (or rather a cenotaph marble slab placed there in the 19th century as the real tomb has been lost to history) is located on the upper Eastern gallery and is a simple marker virtually flush with the floor.

When Langdon and Sienna remove the death mask from the baptismal, Sienna states that it is covered in "Acrylic Gesso" which she claims is a water soluble paint. She then proceeds to wipe the gesso away with a rag thus revealing the next clue. Since the gesso is obviously dry, as they both handle the mask without any residue sticking to their hands, it is impossible to simply wipe the gesso away with a rag, given the fact that acrylic gesso is waterproof once dry, forming a plastic like layer, very much like acrylic house paint.

Plot holes 

Zobrist has 100% dedication for the virus release. He does not seek any personal gain. He even sacrifices his life to save the plan. So why did he bother with a complicated plan which not only depends on others, but also depends on their puzzle-solving ability? Why did he not release the virus in a crowded place? He even would not need a bomb, just opening a container would be enough for him.
