Swordfish

Continuity mistake: At the beginning Gabriel and Stan leave the coffee shop. The high up shot (with the helicopter flying past it) shows them walking out into the road, with Gabriel almost at the middle of the road before the shot changes. Then there's a shot of his face then in the next shot from behind a police car they are just leaving the pavement area. (00:04:25)

Continuity mistake: When Travolta and Jackman are chased by the vans, there is a shot from Travolta standing in the car with a gun in his hands. A split second later there is a shot from the front, showing them sitting next to each other in the car. There's no way he could have gotten down so fast.

Continuity mistake: When the government agents try to take out John Travolta and Hugh Jackman, all of the SUV's are supposed to be Lincoln Navigators. Travolta destroys the first two. The third SUV turns left around a corner and it's a Ford Expedition, not a Lincoln Navigator. The scene cuts away and when the SUV is closer it's a Lincoln Navigator.

Ginger: If you want a chance in hell at getting your daughter back, you better listen up. Unless of course, you want to stay here, in this loser existence, while your daughter grows up to be the fluffer in her daddy's new videos.
Stanley Jobson: Please pay me the courtesy of not confusing your own childhood with my daughter's.

Question: After Stan finished building the Hydra, he said: 'it's time to disguise you as internal destruction'. Now, I'm not a hacker or a great programmer, so can anybody please explain to me what he meant?

Answer: He wants to dupe everyone who investigates the problem into thinking it was an internal error, rather than a virus. Doing so would lead them away from Stan, and he would get away with the attack.
