New this month Character mistake: Towards the end of the film the Jackal, in disguise as the fictional one-legged, grey haired Frenchman Andre Martin, finishes setting up his sniper's nest and removes his beret, revealing that he has only dyed his hair grey where it protruded. He has a circular mop of his normal chestnut brown hair under his hat! This is an incredibly stupid thing to do - it is a perfectly normal thing for a policeman (or any other security operative) to ask that someone showing identity papers remove his hat if he is wearing one. The Jackal is a professional assassin who meticulously prepares for all contingencies - he isn't going to throw away his whole plan for the sake of a bit of extra hair dye. (02:10:05)
New this month Character mistake: On finding Harman's dead body in their caravan, Charley says 'You called it, kid'. Great line, but Harman didn't call it. Charley, in fact, called it by giving his address to Jewell., who passes it on to Molly, who then goes to kill both Harman and Charley if he can.Sir John Danvers
