The Rock

Visible crew/equipment: When Mason is fighting the guy whose legs are on fire, watch Mason's hair. It's completely different from Sean Connery's. It's thicker and there's more of it, and at one point you can see the stunt guy's face.

Visible crew/equipment: When Sean Connery is fighting the guy whose legs are on fire, watch Sean's stunt double. There's a rope and a metal safety harness holding him steady.

Visible crew/equipment: During the Humvee chase, right after the FBI car is on its wheels, you see someone wearing a helmet come out the car. There were no police bikes in the chase so that means it was a stuntman who got out.

Visible crew/equipment: Right near the very end where you have the overhead shot of the bombs hitting the back of the island you see Stanley Goodspeed being thrown through the air by the force of the explosion, and into the water. As he is flying through the air you can see the wires he is attached to, to make him fly.

Visible crew/equipment: In the interrogation room, it shows the mirror reflecting Mason, Goodspeed and the other guy. Look carefully: for a split second you can see a shine of a watch, then an arm, of the cameraman.

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)

General Hummel: Do you know who I am? Did they tell you why I am doing this? Why I am out here? Or are they using you like they did everyobdy else?
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.
General Hummel: "The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants." Thomas Jefferson.
John Mason: "Patriotism is a virtue of the vicious," according to Oscar Wilde.
[Hummel knocks him to the ground.]
John Mason: Thank you for making my point.

Trivia: When Stanley introduces himself, Mason replies with "but of course you are". James Bond said the same thing to Plenty O'Toole in Diamonds are Forever, and both Bond and Mason were played by Sean Connery.

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.

Answer: Actually he led them to believe he needed it to break in.
