Corrected entry: When Gabe is trying to stop the girl from falling, Frank is rather obviously smiling and when she actually falls, he's laughing.
Corrected entry: When Gabe is climbing alone he zaps the rock with a 'bolt gun' however as he is not using any rope or other climbing gear there is no need.
Corrected entry: I would like someone to explain to me how the sequence with the bridge blowing up works; The two heroes try to emerge from the cave but are foiled as the bad guys blow it up. They swing round a cavern on the rope onto the next face and climb up onto the top. I presume they are still on the same side of the bridge, (otherwise, why cross over the bridge again?). Yet, they then proceed to cross the bridge you see Gabe (Stallone) trigger the explosives on the opposite side, (which we never see planted - only the one for the cave), and race back to the same side. Presumably, they needed to cross the bridge to keep up with the badguys but as the bridge is now destroyed how do they get across? Unless, the other group is going very slowly and an alternative route is not too far away, wouldn't they take too long going this second way and miss the third suitcase? I think there's a mistake there somewhere but could someone work it out for me.
Corrected entry: When the old man is shot while trying to help the girl who is pretending to be hurt, you clearly see he is shot on the right hand side of his chest, but when his friend runs over to him, the bullet wounds are on the left-hand side of his chest.
Corrected entry: During the fight scene with Sly and the black man in the cave, Sly grabs the guy and is about to impale him onto a hanging icicle. Watch carefully, they show you the icicle before he is impaled, and it is ALREADY bloody and dripping.
Corrected entry: If you look closely when the girl first grooms the horse it is on the same side of the fence as her. She then walks directly towards the house, (with no other fences visible). When she returns to finish grooming the horse is now on the opposite side of the fence. This means that the horse has either managed to hop over the fence during the dialogue or it is a different horse. Yet when the camera pulls back at the end of the scene you only see one lightly coloured horse, with a second (black or brown) one is just visible on the right of the screen, (for the widescreen DVD anyway). So where did this third one come from?
Corrected entry: Early on when Sly comes back to talk his girlfriend, she is grooming a horse - she unties it and walks off, as we come back again the horse has tied itself back to the fence.
Corrected entry: In the beginning when Sylvester loses grip of the woman's hand, she falls to her death. Immediately after that they show the reaction of the helicopter pilot...and he's laughing.
Corrected entry: Not only does Stallone wear just a t-shirt and baseball cap several miles above sea level, but he is sweating profusely throughout the movie.
Eric Qualen: Kill a few people, they call you a murderer. Kill a million and you're a conqueror.
Trivia: The stunt early on in the film where Eric Qualen and his team do the plane to plane transfer was performed by British stuntman Simon Crane. The stunt was performed at an altitude of 2.95 miles (4.75 km) and was the most expensive stunt ever performed costing £568,000(£1 million). Sly Stallone is said to have reduced his fee by that amount to ensure the stunt was made.
