Corrected entry: Just before Stu makes his public "confession" from the phone booth, a SWAT member is shown on the balcony, loading a rubber bullet round into a 12 gauge shotgun. In the extreme close-up, he releases the spring-loaded receiver with the touch of his finger and it snaps shut (plainly indicating that it is a semi-automatic shotgun). However, in the immediate next camera shot, the SWAT guy is now handling a tactical pump shotgun. Pump shotguns do not have spring-loaded receivers.Charles Austin Miller
Corrected entry: In the end the sniper walks right up to the ambulance truck Stu is in and starts talking to him. After a thing like that the police wouldn't just let anyone walk around the crime scene and near the victim.
Corrected entry: Right after Stu got the pain-killer in the ambulance the paramedic did not tape a piece of cotton on the injection-hole. Any real paramedic would do that.
Corrected entry: Towards the end of the movie when Forrest is talking to Stu about how they are trying to bring the "lawyer" down, there is a shot that includes the bat that the pimp used to smash the booth. After there is a close up, the bat has disappeared from the street. Also, the bat wasn't there throughout the whole movie after the pimp was shot so it is pretty random that it shows up again.
Corrected entry: After the first three shots that the sniper fires (robot, ear, guy with the bat), he threatens several times to shoot the wife, the girlfriend, the cop, etc. He repeatedly 'cocks' the rifle (four times) without firing a shot. Cocking the rifle chambers a round, which doesn't go anywhere until fired.
Corrected entry: In the end of the movie, the sniper is seen walking away with a gun case. Just about any police officer knows what a gun case looks like and the sniper would have immediately been stopped and checked.
Corrected entry: At the end, the Caller walks off holding a large duffel case which ostensibly holds the rifle he was using. But when the officers break into his apartment, they find the dead pizza guy - and the rifle still on its stand. The Caller couldn't have possibly gotten back into his apartment and dismantled the rifle with all the cops there, and there's no way he had the time - after realizing he'd been had - to kill the pizza guy, disassemble his rifle, assemble a new one and set it up, aim it perfectly, then get out of there. So what's he carrying at the end?
Corrected entry: In the scene where the cops arrive, you can see the pimp's dead body lying on the street. In the very next shot he's gone. (00:31:55)
Corrected entry: Early in the film, Colin sneaks a call to the police on his cell phone. Kiefer somehow knows about it and chastises Colin. So why is Colin later able to sneak a call to his wife in the same manner?
Corrected entry: Why did Kiefer Sutherland call from the hotel room phone so that the cops could find out where he was. Did he want everything to end? If he would call from the same phone the whole time he wouldn't have to kill the pizza guy, who obviously wasn't a bad person, he wouldn't have to get another rifle to rig, and he could play with Farrell for a much longer time.
Corrected entry: The max effective range for a beanbag or rubber bullet 12 gauge shotgun round is about 25 yards. The police officer deployed across the street and up on a balcony. With that range, the officer would have been very lucky to hit a barn let alone a moving person. The impact at that range would have been barely noticable. Even from within 20 yards those rounds don't knock you down, they just hurt like hell.
Corrected entry: When Captain Ramey first talks to Stu, he is smart enough to figure out that there is a problem with Stu staying on the phone but he's not smart enough to figure out that Stu was trying to protect Kelly by saying that she wasn't his wife. Ramey even asked to see her I.D. again and after finding out who she was and even after seeing the laser on her, he still lets her walk all around.MCKD
Corrected entry: In the scene where the pimp gets shot, he is heading towards the phone booth. Then in the scene where the bullet grazes Colin Farrel's ear, it enters though the left side of the phone booth and in an ealier scene, the sniper mentions that he could see the numbers Colin was dialing on the phone (which means he would have been viewing from the back of the phone booth)...so how is this possible when the sniper was suppose to be in the same window through the entire movie?
Corrected entry: When Keifer Sutherland first engages Colin Farrel in the phone booth, he decribes his rifle. He also states that it would leave an exit wound the size of "a small tangerine". However, when KS shoots the pimp who is attempting to get CF out of the phone booth there is no exit wound.
Corrected entry: After the pimp gets killed and the police finally come and get the body the one officer starts talking to Colin Farrell while he's in the phone booth. After a few minutes there is a shot from above the street and there is a chalk outline on the pavement where the pimp's body was. Who had time do that and when did they do so?
