Revealing mistake: When Gere is trapped in the police car and the assassin attempts to shoot him, he fires several shots into the window at Gere's head and every single shot misses yet they do not strike his lawyer or the other window. Where exactly did the bullets go?
Factual error: Near the end of the trial, Gere is trying to remember what the murdered girl was saying over the phone and only gets out a few words in Chinese, "Wo Men De" which means "Our". His lawyer fills in the entire rest of the sentence with, "Wo Men De Guan Xi Wan Le," which means "Our relationship is over." How could she know exactly what the girl said on the phone, and how could the judge allow her to put words in Richard Gere's mouth?
