When the squad first lands from the helicopter, Sgt. Wells tells Cooper "Get a position and bearing. I want to be on the move in three minutes." He gives the command for the squad to move out exactly 3 minutes later.

When Ryan is thrown across the table, the sword is shown being knocked to the floor. But when Ryan gets up and puts his arms on the table, the sword is back on the table. Then the next shot, the sword is on the ground again and Cooper is reaching for it.

When Wells crashes into the oven, the bottom plate comes off and the gas hose falls out. He cuts the hose and in the next shot the bottom plate is suddenly back on the oven.

(at around 1h 13 mins) Megan shoots all the ammo from her magazine but the slide doesn't lock back on the last shot like it should. It was designed to do this to allow for the next magazine.

Camper: You were right. This is definitely better than being at work. One thing you didn't warn us about though - bloody midges.

What were the ages of each of the soldiers?
Their ages are never stated in the film. Captain Ryan is clearly the oldest. Sergeant Wells is the oldest out of his squad. Bruce the corporal is most likely the second oldest in the rest of Wells' squad. Cooper might have been the oldest of the privates and Joe is likely older than Spoon. Terry is clearly the youngest.
What types of weapons are used in the film?
The squad initially starts out with SA-80s in the early scenes of the film while they are still on an exercise, and then after they liberate equipment from the Special Ops Camp, the weapons are: (1) MP5s - used by Cooper, Sgt. Wells, Bruce and initially Terry; (2) Mossberg 500 shotgun - used by Joe, and (3) Heckler & Koch G3A3 rifle - used initially by Spoon, who later trades with Terry after they are rendered stranded at the farmhouse. All sidearms in the film are 9mm Browning HPs.
