A Time to Kill

Audio problem: When "Mickey Mouse" rescues Roark, he says something like "It's gonna be all right," yet his mouth is closed and not moving at all.

Factual error: Toward the end of the film, Matthew McConnaughey is in his office late at night and hears someone outside (it turns out to be his wife). However, McConnaughey draws a revolver from his desk drawer and we can hear (but not see) him pulling the hammer back to cock the gun. Problem is: When pulling back the hammer on a revolver, the cylinder turns to rotate the next bullet into position. The cylinder did not turn. The sound we heard was obviously added by the sound editors after the scene was shot.

Continuity mistake: At the end of the movie when Sandra Bullock character is in the hospital and the nurse revealed to her that Carl Lee was innocent, look carefully at the TV. You can see Jake, Harry Rex and Lucent standing outside the courthouse, but in the very next scene they haven't even left the courtroom.

Continuity mistake: The DA addresses Deputy Looney in court as "Detective". He is a uniformed deputy, not a detective. It would be surprising for a lawyer in court to make such a mistake.

Lucien Wilbanks: If you win this case, justice will prevail, and if you lose, justice will also prevail. Now that is a strange case.

Trivia: In one of the courtroom scenes, the judge refers to Sandra Bullock as "Lois Lane." Around the same time this film was being made, Bullock was heavily considered to play the role of Lois Lane in Tim Burton's Superman Lives, but the movie was canceled just weeks before shooting.
