Continuity mistake: When Atwood is sent back and continues his fall, he lands on a black police car with his head and body lying on the bonnet face down. From the overhead shot his body has completely disappeared, as he was wearing a light grey suit which would stand out on the black car.

Continuity mistake: At the end when they are hanging from the roof, the bad guy gets shot and falls off and Walker climbs back onto the roof. He then turns the light off on top of the gun, but when he walks away the light is back on.

Continuity mistake: At the end when they are fighting at the house, future Walker's hair keeps changing between wet and dry throughout the whole scene.

Factual error: As Walker and Atwood are falling from the building in 1929 New York City, the reflection of Vancouver's Harbor Centre is visible in windows. Furthermore, the Harbor Centre was completed in 1977, so this is a double goof. (00:22:45)

More quotes from Timecop

Question: When Lyle is at his desk, he has two newspapers in front of him and he is circling the same stock on both of them. One newspaper is for the year he's currently in, 1929. The second one is from 2004. How could stocks from the same newspaper 75 years apart possibly be helpful in getting McComb to the presidency?

Answer: Also, it was strongly implied that Lyle Atwood was in New York City shortly after the massive Wall Street crash that occurred in October of 1929, so all he would need to do is find stocks that still exist and are doing well in 2004 and buy those particular stocks when they're presumably at their lowest value in history; the payoff after 75 years would be astronomical for the stockholder.

Answer: Any stock that massively increased in value between 1929 and 2004 would be a great investment for a time traveller, providing vast quantities of wealth to help fund a presidential campaign, for example.
