Corrected entry: Near the end of the movie McFee shoots a hole in the silo door which is quite oddly shaped. When the camera is on Schaeffer, calling McFee, you hear another shot. Then you see the silo door again with corn pouring out through a nicely cut, straight hole where the gunshot was, plus two more "dents" where this powerful weapon now couldn't even make holes.

Corrected entry: When Danny Glover and the other two cops show up at the farm they fire several shots which echo across the valley, one shot stopping Samuel in his tracks as he runs to a neighboring farm. The Amish don't shoot guns normally. And yet none of the Amish come to see what is going on at the Lapp farm until Samuel rings the bell. Then they all drop their pitchforks to come investigate.phatbenny
Corrected entry: There is a scene in the kitchen where Kelly Mcgillis opens the cabinet and you see Campbell's Soup inside. No self respecting Amish wife would have Campbell's soup in a can. (00:51:05)
Corrected entry: During the scene when Samuel witnesses the murder in the train station toilet, he hides in one of the cubicles. Danny Glover goes along the line of cubicles pulling the doors open to see if anyone is hiding in them. All the doors open outwards yet when he gets to the locked cubicle Samuel is in, he kicks the door inwards. Only the door lock breaks, not the hinges as you would expect if a door was forced the wrong way. (00:14:50)
Plot hole: When Schaeffer, McFee, and Fergie drive to the Lapp farm to kill John, the car stops on top of a hill. Then it reverses a bit to be out of sight from the farm. But then the formerly careful guys get out and walk down the open road, sporting their guns like in an Italo western. (01:28:30)NancyFelix
Daniel Hochleitner: Your hole, it is better now?
John Book: Yeah, it's pretty much healed.
Daniel Hochleitner: Good. Then you can go home.
Trivia: Harrison Ford was very taken with the Amish and the beautiful scenery in which Witness was filmed. Mr. Ford is a supporter and contributor to the Lancaster Farmland Trust, which helps save and preserve precious family farmlands. The Krantz' farm (where Witness was filmed) was saved and preserved by this trust fund.Lynette Carrington
