Salim kicks the first door, but the close up shot shows it's at least the 2nd door since we can see a door to the left of the post with the lock on it. After that he kicks the 2nd and 3rd door. After he kicks the 4th door, Harry crashes out of his stall, but he's 3 stalls over instead of 2.

Continuity mistake: After the shootout in the restroom, close to a hundred rounds were fired, all from LOUD guns, yet when Arnold and the terrorist are running through the mall and out the window, people are standing around in the stores, like they never heard a thing. Heck, that AK-47 would even be heard by the people outside on the street. The only one to hear anything is the guy on the toilet.

xx:xx:xx

Continuity mistake: When Harry is racing the police horse through the park and hotel you see the end of his reins flip up several times. They are regulation length leather reins. Yet when the horse stops and flips him off over the edge of the building, suddenly the reins are about 10 feet long and much thicker. Also, in reality, the reins would probably have snapped or the bridle would have broken had 200 plus pounds hit the end of them at that speed.

Mistakes

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.

Trivia

In the scene when Arnold has rescued Jamie Lee Curtis from the limo and she is flying over the ocean from Arnold's hand, Curtis is actually the one doing that stunt.
