Corrected entry: Tommy Lee Jones uses an abandoned tourist ship as his base of operations. An A&E broadcast of symphony performance is prominently featured, which his character is watching at his lair. Just how many cruise ships have cable access?

Correction: Not many. But buying a satellite dish (on the black market, to avoid registration) and rigging it up in the ship is very easy.

Corrected entry: There is a shot of a helicopter going past a building at a point in the movie (maybe the middle), when it shows a second helicopter in the background. Obviously the one holding the camera and film crew.

Correction: While this is probably true, it should not be considered a mistake. After the bomb detonates, you can see that there ARE two police helicopters in the sky. So it is reasonable that you can see two helicopters in the building's reflection.

Plot hole: The premise of the entire movie's main character, played by Jeff Bridges, is flawed, as it would be impossible for anyone to pass a major metropolitan police department's pre-employment screening background investigation for the position of police officer if that applicant uses a fake name and identity. Part of the investigation includes sending off the applicant's finger prints to the National Criminal Information Center, a polygraph test, a records check with vital statistics to verify place of birth, Dept. of Labor to verify past employment, Social Security Dept. and also interviewing (sometimes in person) your friends you've listed and your current and former neighbors of where you now live and use to live.
