True Lies

Audio problem: In the public restroom fight, Arnold slams one of the bad guys head into the ceramic urinal. Although you hear two loud and clear "klonks", the urinal bends when Arnold presses the bad guy's head down. [Only visible in the pan and scan version.] (00:31:55)

Audio problem: When the motorbike drives through the Marriot - on carpet - its tires makes sounds as if on concrete. (00:35:50)

Jacob La Cour

Audio problem: In the scene where Dana's about to fall off the crane, you hear an audio of her screaming "Help me. Help me." But if you look at her face, she's not saying anything. (02:08:15)

Audio problem: When the helicopter is following "Carlos the Jackal" and Jamie Lee, it's hovering really closely, yet they never hear it. But you can hear it as they are being taken from the trailer home. (01:00:05)

Audio problem: While on the plane, Helen says 'we are married and we have a child!'. When the shot changes the part 'and we have a child!' does not match her mouth. (01:28:05)

Audio problem: When Helen drops the gun she moans something like "Ow! Ew!" but her mouth is closed.

Audio problem: When Harry is walking across the street after finding out Helen is having an affair, the bus beeps its horn but the driver's hands remain on the wheel.

Audio problem: Harry and Gib pull over to the side of the road, and Harry yells "Give me the goddamn page!" and smashes the SUV window. Harry yells this line during a shot transition, and in the end of the first shot ("Give me-") his mouth isn't moving, yet in the next shot ("-the goddamn page!") his mouth IS moving. (00:57:05)

Factual error: There are a lot of comments about the Harrier (technically speaking it is an AV-8B, a slightly different aircraft) flown by Arnold Schwarzenegger, but everyone's missed the obvious one. The terrorist with the AK47 is unaware of the fact that a Harrier is hovering just outside the window until he slowly turns and see it there. He does a double take when he sees the Harrier just five metres away! A Harrier is an incredibly loud aircraft; you can hear them from three kilometers away. At that range the floor would shake with the noise and he would have been in no doubt whatever that he had been under attack for some time.
