Continuity mistake: At the beginning of the movie during the helicopter chase scene, there are two different makes of car used - a four door Nova and a two door Buick.

Continuity mistake: The film starts with a helicopter chasing a car being driven flat out around a winding mountain road. At one stage you see that the nearside rear wheel has lost its hubcap. A few seconds later the hubcap's back.

Continuity mistake: During the car chase on the freeway, when Daryl drives the car with the doctor off a ramp, the camera shows the car head-on as it lands, again as it drives past the camera, and from the rear as it drives away. In both shots of the same ramp scene, a tall adult is in the driver's seat, and the passenger seat is empty. Less than a second later, the rear silhouettes of a tall person driving and a short person in the passenger seat are visible, and three seconds later Daryl is driving with the Doctor.

Continuity mistake: When the SR-71 is taxiing from the hanger its tail number is 17964, but just before the plane explodes the tail number is 17974. (01:25:15 - 01:31:30)


Factual error: While the problem with refuelling the SR71 is a real one for D.A.R.Y.L., he is never going to get that far. The SR71 had no self starters and required a trained crew with a starter generator mounted on a truck to get the engines going in the first place. D.A.R.Y.L. just pushes a button and away he goes. Not likely.
