Steel

Character mistake: When John Henry Irons is arrested, two police officers lay him face-down in order to zip-tie his wrists behind his back. A close-up of Irons' hands, however, reveals that the zip-tie only wraps around his right wrist while crossing about mid-way on his left thumb, meaning that he could easily remove his left hand from the restraint with very little effort. Arresting police officers would never make this mistake in real life.

Trivia: When Uncle Joe gives John the hammer he made, after Joe comments on the hammer's special shaft, Susan and John kind of roll their eyes at Uncle Joe. Richard Roundtree, who plays Uncle Joe, played John Shaft in the 1970s.
