The Rock

Revealing mistake: When Mason is having his hair cut, after finishing up, he is talking to Womack and turns his back on him. If you look at the back of Mason's neck, it is clear that he's not just been freshly shorn; there are whorls of hair just above his collar. (Either that, or the barber was terrible at his job).

Revealing mistake: During the big chase scene when the tram is out of control as it hits the last car and blows up you can see rubber tires on it, specially added to let it go on tarmac.

Revealing mistake: In the shower room massacre scene, you can see a bullet casing when they show one of the dying Navy SEALS really close-up. If you look carefully, the end of the casing is crimped, which is what a blank round's casing looks like. A real bullet casing would not be crimped at the end.

Revealing mistake: Towards the end while Goodspeed is struggling with the last soldier, then he jumps down and the stunt double is visible - the hair is different.

Continuity mistake: Nick Cage is chasing Mason in the yellow Ferrari. The windshield breaks at least twice, but is perfect in the next shot. (00:45:55)

John Mason: All I know is that you were big in Vietnam. I saw the highlights on television.
General Hummel: Then you probably have got no fucking idea what it means to lead some of the finest gentlemen on God's earth into combat, and then watch their memories get betrayed by their own damn government.
John Mason: I don't quite see how you can cherish the memory of the dead by killing another million. This is not combat, it's an act of lunacy, General Sir. Personally, I think you're a fucking idiot.

Question: What is the purpose of the special gear given to Mason? He uses them to kill the bad guy later in the movie but he was just there to lead the way and wasn't meant to take part in any action, so is there any other reason why he was given them?

Chosen answer: He wasn't meant to be involved in any action, but being SAS-trained he could defend himself if needed. He was given the equipment just in case.
