Continuity mistake: In the car chase scene, Mason is driving the stolen Hummer and he hits a meter maid truck sending it flying into a telephone pole and blowing it up. They slow down the film a little here and show us this hit from several different angles including from above. When they slow down the film you can see that the Hummer is turned sideways in the impact but in the next frame it drives off as if it had just tapped the meter truck and not slammed into it as shown.
Ed Harris is shot by his own people. Nicholas Cage alerts the fighter pilots to not fire upon Alcatraz right in the nick of time. Sean Connery tells him where the secret microfilm is hidden, and Cage lets him go, telling the FBI that he died in Alcatraz. Cage and his girlfriend get married, the film ends with them finding the microfilm.
John Mason: This is more enjoyable than my average day. Reading philosophy, avoiding gang rape in the washrooms... Though that's less of a problem these days. Maybe I'm losing my sex appeal.
