Speed

Continuity mistake: At the end of the film, the train flies off the track, through a wood-framed tunnel under construction, and then onto a city street. During the credits, as the shot is pulled back, there is no destroyed wood-framed tunnel. In fact, traffic is flowing normally in the background.

Visible crew/equipment: When Jack is talking to Howard from the pay-phone, you can see the boom microphone's reflection in the phone in several shots.

Revealing mistake: When Jack is fighting Dennis Hopper on the roof of the subway train, a peice of paper falls off one of them and then stays surprisingly still considering they're on a speeding subway train.

Continuity mistake: When Howard Payne is in the elevator, he hears Jack and Harry doing something from above, and he reaches for his bomb trigger. In slow motion when he's picking it up, it has two buttons on it, yet when Howard pushes one of the buttons, the device now has three.

Visible crew/equipment: The side camera is visible when the bus has to make the tight right turn. After the bus returns all the wheels to the ground and before it smashes into the cop car, you can see the side camera.

Revealing mistake: After Jack has taken command of "Tuneman"s car, in the wide shots of them chasing the bus you can tell it's not Keanu Reeves driving. The stunt driver has slightly longer hair in a more squared crew cut.

Continuity mistake: In the first part of the movie, it appears that the building is approximately 53 floors high, we can see this as when Keanu Reeves and Jeff Daniels go to the roof the label on the door is "ROOF/53". However, the service elevator seems to reach the top of the shaft after Dennis Hopper enters level 46 on the control panel. This is rather unfortunate, especially as the security console says that the elevator "serves floors GE-52". I wouldn't like to be in the elevator as it tries to go past level 46 to a higher floor such as 52.

Continuity mistake: When Dennis Hopper's shooting the shotgun through the lift roof, the number of holes doesn't match the number of blasts. He shoots once and a hole appears. We then see a close up of him and he shoots twice more, but when we cut to the ceiling after the third shot overall, there are only two holes in it. Doesn't seem likely he'd miss the roof at a range of 2 feet.

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Jack is fighting Dennis Hopper on the roof of the subway train we see Jack lying on the top of the train getting punched by Dennis. We briefly cut away, and then back to Jack and the corrugations on the train roof have rotated through ninety degrees.

Continuity mistake: When Jack is running across the street in downtown Los Angeles, in two different camera shots two different red cars are shown stopped in the same place to let him cross the street.

Continuity mistake: When Jack is chasing the bus on the freeway in the Jaguar, an overhead shot is shown of the bus with three cars around it, but in the next shot of the traffic, the road is full of traffic which is surrounding the bus, which is highlighted by Jack having to to swerve around the cars.

Factual error: According to the TV announcer, the bus went from the Santa Monica Freeway to Western Avenue to the 105 freeway. Two problems would have occurred. First, the Western Avenue exit from the SM freeway is way too narrow to safely make a turn at such high speed. Second, there is no onramp from Western Avenue to the 105 in any direction.

Continuity mistake: After the first bus explodes, Jack ducks for cover near his Bronco. Soon he looks over at the burning wreck and stands up - but notice that he's still crouched down in very next shot.

Revealing mistake: When Ortiz first sees Jack stranded beneath the moving bus, he lifts his head to tell Annie. But the pavement, as seen through the bus floor's opening, is completely motionless.

WebsterJake

Continuity mistake: Upon exiting the highway into downtown traffic and blasting through a red light, the bus has a couple of road signs lodged into its bumper which disappear between shots - right before it gets blindsided by a Ford Taurus.

WebsterJake

Revealing mistake: There is a clear shot of Keanu Reeves' stunt driver in the Bronco just before it parks on the highway's shoulder near the gridlocked traffic.

WebsterJake

Revealing mistake: Before Jack rips the door off the Jaguar, he speeds ahead of the bus and then opens the driver's door at highway speed. At 50 MPH there would be a lot of air resistance, yet Jack opens the door effortlessly.

Continuity mistake: The paint that sprays on Payne's face changes splatter pattern throughout the rest of the scenes with Payne.

Starchild

Continuity mistake: When Payne shoots the train driver in the back, blood appears on his shirt. A few seconds later when he is falling down, his shirt is clean.

Starchild

Continuity mistake: In the shots before the bus blows up the Pacific Courier Freight plane, you can see that the vehicle towing it and the plane itself are no longer moving, as opposed to a couple of shots before this where the tow vehicle and plane are moving at a good pace. You also can no longer see the man who is supposed to be driving the tow vehicle (who might have run for it, but there's minimal time).

Trivia

The famous "Dukes of Hazzard" sequence was the filmmakers' wry commentary on the uncompleted state of Interstate 105, which had become a running joke among LA motorists. It was finally (and quite uncoincidentally) completed in late 1993 shortly before the film's release, years behind schedule.
