Corrected entry: Soon after Jack gets on the bus, Howard can see the bus on the news. Why is the news at this stage covering this? The only thing that has been suspicious is someone from a car coming from a car onto a bus, but what has happened before this that makes this newsworthy? Looks like regular traffic is flowing up to this point. (00:44:00)oobs
Corrected entry: Payne tells Jack he wants the money left in a green bin on the northeast corner of some intersection. Then later we see Payne looking out a window at the drop bin. If that's the northeast corner, then the shadow of the bin indicates the sun is shining from due north, and quite low to the horizon. That would never happen - certainly not in Los Angeles.Aerinah
Corrected entry: How did Payne not find out about the passengers getting off safely sooner than noticing the loop in the video feed? While choppers weren't allowed in the air space of LAX, there was reporters and media following the event on almost every channel. Payne was watching numerous TVs but not one channel mentions the massive explosion at the airport when the bus hits the plane, which would have been visible from the perimeter.Lummie
Corrected entry: In the subway car scene, the voice calling for "Westbound 501" is distorted, as you would expect from a CB radio. Later on when Mac calls on the same radio, his voice is much clearer, as if he's right there.
Corrected entry: In the scene after they get to the airport where the news helicopters can't follow, Keanu Reeves talks Dennis Hopper into letting him get off the bus to talk to the money people. They cut to Dennis Hopper with several TVs in the scene. The bottom right TV still has arial coverage of the bus.MikeB
Corrected entry: In this movie the only reason why Howard Payne is trying to blow the elevator and the buses is because he wants money. He also gets very upset when the paint explodes in the bag. If you look on the back of bus 2525 there's a green sign that says "Money isn't everything (Yeah Right)".ShooterMcGavin34
Corrected entry: At the airport, as the last bus passenger is crossing to the rescue vehicle, the right rear tire of the city bus blows out. The bus immediately veers to the left, and Annie pulls the wheel to the right to try to keep a straight course. However, a vehicle will always veer to the side with the blown out tire, which in this case, should have been to the right. (01:24:50)
Corrected entry: Our heroes steer the bus toward a gap in an elevated exit ramp even though we can see in a wide shot that they have at least two alternative routes, one of which is completely unobstructed. It appears that the only possible reason for taking the route that they chose could be to film a jump scene. (01:02:35)
Corrected entry: During the final scene when the train car crashes onto the road, the way the glass shatters into very very small fragments indicates that it is not real glass, and likely sugar glass.
Corrected entry: At the end of the film, a tape loop is made of the camera inside the bus to trick the villain to think that everybody's still on board. With the video equipment shown, it is simply not possible to do a seamless loop in a flick of a second.
Corrected entry: A bus would never, ever be able to maintain a speed of 50 mph on the secondary streets of Los Angeles in the middle of the day, for any significant length of time, without smashing into hundreds of other cars (in which case, it would probably drop below 50 and explode anyway.)Krista
