Corrected entry: Matrix is taught to be super stealthy and has deadly instincts like being able to smell his enemy downwind, so it doesn't make sense that he would rip the seat out of Cindy's car, causing a lot of noise and making Cindy gasp in shock, when he's trying not to draw Sully's attention that he got off the plane. Surely it would've made more sense to just keep Cindy quiet and recline the seat far enough to disappear from view, or hide in the back seat instead.
Corrected entry: After Arnold drops Sully of the cliff, he goes back to the the woman's car where she asks what he did with Sully, but she was never told his name. (00:41:49)
Corrected entry: When General Kirby goes to John Matrix's house to tell him his men have been killed, he names, "Lawson, Forrestal, Bennett, they've all been hit". Later, Arius reveals to Matrix, "we had to fake Bennett's death so General Kirby would become agitated and lead us to you". Why would Bennett be the only one out of the three who's death would cause Kirby to go to Matrix's home? (00:10:35)
Corrected entry: In the beginning of the movie, the other members of the Matrix special forces team are killed in various ways. None of them saw the threat coming, none of them decided to try and fight, the man with the trash even seemed scared when he saw the guns instead of reacting in some way. We are led to believe that Matrix is the only operative in his unit to have never lost his edge. (00:01:55)Knapper
Corrected entry: Right after John Matrix kills Henriques and tells the flight attendant, "don't disturb my friend, he's dead tired" he gets up to go to the restroom. The Flight attendant tells him, "sir you must remain seated during takeoff", Matrix replies, "I'm airsick". This would not work because the flight attendant would point out that there are barf bags at each seat. (00:22:55)
Corrected entry: Arnie is supposed to be an army trained soldier but at the end of movie when he's shooting up the army base he hangs the grenades by their pins. Surely he couldn't be that stupid? (01:04:20)
Corrected entry: When Matrix leaves the plane to paddle ashore, he's heading directly to the shore. But when we see him actually padding to the shore itself from a side view of the raft, you can see the seaplane directly behind the raft. Considering the direction Matrix left from the plane, the plane should have been off to the left of the shot, off camera, Not in the background of the shot.poehitman
Corrected entry: When Arnie's daughter is kidnapped, Arnold has got a shotgun and sees the guy in his daughter's room. Arnold shoots the guy in the head and there is a medium sized bullet wound on the guy's head. A blast from a shotgun at that range would have blown his head off his shoulders.
Corrected entry: When he is attacking the house near the end, a stuntman falls off the roof, unfortunately you can see a hint of blue crash mat as he lands. (01:12:30)
Corrected entry: A general point which might apply to many films like this; why does Arnie round up so many different guns with incompatible ammo, why not just get one decent weapon and carry lots of ammo for it. Mind you the guys on the island have to face the same logistical nightmare with AK47s plus 9mm, 7.62mm and 5.56mm weapons all in evidence.
Corrected entry: After Matrix gets busted at the gun shop, you see Cindy just drive out of the parking lot without any police asking who she is or what she was doing there. What's funny about it is that you can even tell the police are still there by the flashing lights which are hitting the front of the store. Why would the police let a car pull out of the back of a parking lot of a store that was just broken into without wanting to know who that was? If they were good cops they would have seen her car anyway once they got to the store. (00:56:07)
Corrected entry: When he invades the compound one would think that he would keep in mind that he's there to save his daughter but he goes around blowing stuff up..His daughter could be in one of those buildings, plus if he was running around shooting people obviously Bennett & El Presidente would have immediately killed his daughter before he would be able to save her, he had no knowledge where she was and he didn't know she conveniently escaped.
