Ending / spoiler

(16 votes)

Jack notices a camera on the bus; Payne has been watching them all along. Jack has the idea of going to the airport where the restricted airspace will stop the TV choppers from filming and the police set up a tape of the interior of the bus whilst driving normally and transmit it over the frequency that Payne is watching. He thinks he is watching what is really going on on the bus but actually the police are loading everyone off.Eventually Payne notices a glitch in the tape and, dressed as a policeman, kidnaps Annie near where he's meant to pick up the money. He knows the money will be a sniper set up because he knows everyone is probably off the bus so he tunnels underneath the spot where the money should be and swipes it that way, making his getaway on a subway train with Annie all done up in an explosives vest.Jack goes after them, fights Payne on the roof of the train and knocks his head off on a passing light. Jack goes back in, finds out the track is a dead end so they have to get off the train. Payne has handcuffed Annie to it unfortunately, so instead, Jack speeds up the train to jump the tracks and it plows out onto the busy street above.They then resolve to base their relationship on sex.

Continuity mistake: Early in the film, Jack shoots Harry through the left thigh (taking the hostage out of the equation). At the police awards ceremony, Harry is using a cane on his right side and his limp favors his right leg. After the ceremony, in the bar, when Harry gets drunk and starts to leave, he's using his cane on the left side and his limp favors his left leg.

Jack: Yeah. The basement.

Trivia: 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)".

Question: When Jack is fighting on the roof of the train,he makes the quip "yeah..but I'm taller" just before the other guys head is knocked off. What does he mean by this? He was laying down at the time, height doesn't come into it.

Answer: He's taller now because he has his head while the villain does not!
