Continuity mistake: In the scene where Robert Redford first assembles the prisoners in formation, right after they finish their fake salute, the shot changes to a view of Gandolfini with a reflection on the window in front of him. The reflection shows the men already heading towards the mess hall. In the next shot, they are all still standing in formation and leave only after being told to do so. (01:01:50)
Eugene Irwin is shot by Col. Winter at the end of the four stage rebellion. The flag is raised by Irwin as he is about to die. Doc calls for an ambulance as Irwin dies. The flag, instead of being flown upside down for the international sign of distress, is flown right-side up. The wall is later rebuilt with a stone dedicated to Corporal Aguilar, and Eugene Irwin.
Eugene Irwin: Now let me get this straight. You mean there is violence here?
Doc: Yes sir.
Eugene Irwin: In a prison packed with violent criminals? Hmm.
