Commando

Plot hole: After Matrix and Bennett have their long fight Bennett picks up a small UZI ready to kill Matrix. Where did the gun come from? Matrix didn't kill anyone in that room and Bennett threw away the gun he had which was a pistol yet there just happens to be a gun already on the floor.

Continuity mistake: At the shopping mall when Sully does the cash exchange (in the envelope) he picks up the money and puts in his pocket, then in the open shot it's back on the table.

Revealing mistake: When Matrix reaches Arius' mansion (in actuality the Harold Lloyd Estate), he is rushed at by several soldiers of Arius' private army and starts shooting at them with his RPK. In one shot from Matrix's rear we can see him shooting four soldiers at the same time. However, the two soldiers on the far left drop dead even though Matrix is aiming his weapon to the right.

Continuity mistake: During the machine gun scene at the en Matrix has a belt fed M60 machine gun. When the fight starts, he has plenty of bullets. A few seconds later he has about 20 cm length of the bullet belt left. Scene switch - and he has more bullets. This switch between low and high ammo a few times. (01:16:15)

Other mistake: Matrix enters his house through a door on the penthouse and a dead soldier by the edge collapses. His feet and legs should be blocking the door and the entrance, but instead, from the angle inside, it swings freely. (00:13:20)

Audio problem: The post-production beep sound-fx coming out of Matrix's stopwatch is sometimes on and others off. (00:22:05 - 00:44:05)

Arius: Your father appears to be cooperating. You will be back with him soon. Won't that be nice?
Jenny: Not as nearly as nice as watching him smash your face in.

Question: When Matrix says to his captors "Why not have Bennett do it, looks like something he will get off on"; did he mean it was something Bennett wouldn't go to jail for (considering he was psychotic), or was it some kind of sexual implication?

Gavin Jackson

Chosen answer: A sexual implication, suggesting that it's something Bennett would find exciting.

Tailkinker Premium member

Answer: Not sexual but something that he (Bennet) would find immense joy in doing due to his unstable mental nature akin to a sociopathic tendency.
