Continuity mistake: When Jack handcuffs Ray to the metal handrail, Ray's right wrist has the double bars facing up and single bar facing down, but when Jack tells the passengers about the gap and then uncuffs Ray before the jump, the handcuff's single bar is facing up on his right wrist.

Visible crew/equipment: The camera operator and camera are visible reflected in Tuneman's sunglasses. It's especially evident right before he crashes into the water barrels.

Plot hole: What exactly is the point in Jack speeding up the subway car? He says so it can jump the track but the track wasn't finished anyway. Speeding up the subway at that point would make no difference, he should have just let the subway continue at the speed it was going.

Revealing mistake: The Jaguar owner holds up the piece of paper with "bomb on bus" written on it, then he loses his grip on it, and when the paper lands directly on the bus windshield, the stunt wires are visible at its sides. (00:37:35)

Revealing mistake: When the bus jumps the gap and comes into land, you can see there are no passengers, not even dummies.

Revealing mistake: The monitor Payne is using to the watch the inside of the bus is nowhere to be seen every time the inside of his hideout is shown. Only until it's revealed he had a camera hidden is the monitor shown.


Other mistake: "Tuneman" has no actual license plate on his car, just the same vanity plate on front and back.

Suggested correction: The Jaguar owner has personalized plates, and the rear license plate has the registration tabs (stickers) affixed to it, the month (Nov) at the left and the yellow tab with the year at the right.

Jack: You're crazy! You're fuckin' crazy!
Howard Payne: NO! Poor people are crazy, Jack. I'm eccentric.

More quotes from Speed

Trivia: The famous "Dukes of Hazzard" sequence was the filmmakers' wry commentary on the uncompleted state of Interstate 105, which had become a running joke among LA motorists. It was finally (and quite uncoincidentally) completed in late 1993 shortly before the film's release, years behind schedule.

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!
