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

Jacob La Cour

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 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.

RonHolton

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: Schwarzenegger flies the Harrier without ear protection of any kind. I was fifty metres from one at the Farnborough Air-show, and I can tell you that after landing he (and his daughter) would be both stone deaf. Yes, they are THAT loud. (02:02:00)

Albert Gibson: You know what? I'm sick of being in the van. You guys are going to be in the van next time. I've been in the van for 15 years, Harry.

Question: How could Harry have known what floor the terrorist leader was going to get off on during the hotel chase sequence?

jbrbbt

Chosen answer: He didn't really. Harry just knew he was heading up. He pressed the top floor to get the elevator moving and kept an eye on him on the way up. If the terrorist's elevator suddenly stops, Harry can press the button for that floor to stop his elevator.
