Collateral Damage

Factual error: In the paramilitary roadblock scene, you can see the license plates of several vehicles, and these plates are not Colombian. In all other scenes, the overall appearence of the license plates match actual Colombian ones.

Factual error: After the terrorists on the motorcycle take off, Gordon uses a fire axe to puncture the natural gas line. The natural gas (which was under pressure) would have quickly filled the tunnel. Now when the motorbike drives through it, the engine should have revved high with a combustible gas being taken in in place of oxygen. It would be like using nitrous on a hot rod. But you can hear the RPM's stay normal for a motorcycle.

Other mistake: When Arnold throws The Wolf's wife into the electrical gate equipment and she is killed, they begin to fight. The Wolf beats Arnold repeatedly then takes out his Motorola cell phone to place a call to set off another bomb. When he pulls the phone from his pocket there is no signal (indicated by red light on phone). A few minutes later Arnold leans over, picks up the phone, and sees that all The Wolf had to do was press the phone button to send the call. So, do you suppose he saw that there were no signal bars on the display, like we did? (01:41:49)

Trivia: Notice that John Leguizamo said that Arnold was working like a cyborg. Of course, he was a cyborg in the Terminator series.
