Corrected entry: When Michael and Dalia set off the dart machine in the barn, it puts 80,000 pinholes in the walls. But there are no spent darts visible anywhere on the floor or on the watchman killed in the barn.

Correction: The small "darts" mentioned are called flechettes. Typically they enter the body and remain embedded. When propelled by high explosives, as in this application, they travel at rifle bullet speeds. It would be highly unusual for any of the flechettes to be anywhere in the area after the explosion.

Corrected entry: When Kabakov starts to question Mr. Muzi the importer, he sticks a gun in Muzi's mouth and says, Now blink once for yes and twice for no. He then asks him a series of questions, none of which are worded to produce a yes or no response.

Correction: When Kabakov questions Mr. Muzi, he tells him if he wants to cooperate to blink for yes, and die for no. Kabakov never says blink once for yes and twice for no. If Muzi did not blink he would have been killed.

Deliberate mistake: After the chopper drags the blimp about a mile out to sea, Kabakov unhooks it, and the blimp's bomb explodes seconds after. Why would he unhook it that close to shore with the dirigible's engines still pushing it back toward land and all those people? He had no idea when the bomb would go off. The bomb's fuse was set by hand inside the gondola.
