Corrected entry: During the initial car chase scene, the speedometer of the stolen car is shown a couple of times. You can see that the speedometer is in kilometers per hour, not miles per hour. This is because most of the movie was actually filmed at a studio in Rome, Italy, so the cars they used were built with European specs.

Correction: In-universe, the car (and the driver from whom it was hijacked from) could have been from Canada, which isn't all that far away from NY, and thus would seem to be totally feasible considering that they too use km/h as the primary units on the speedometers on cars sold there.

Corrected entry: In the scene where the control room operators are looking through the tunnel security camera, you see a crack in the picture, apparently illustrating that the camera lens is damaged. The cracks are perfectly in focus, but a camera lens can't focus on itself, let alone focus on two different distances at the same time. If the lens were really cracked, all you'd see is a blurry and/or fragmented image.

Correction: It is not the camera lens that you see is cracked, but the glass on the outer casing of the CCTV that is cracked.


Corrected entry: Right after Stallone goes through the wormhole to find Roy, you see all the survivors talking outside it. Madeline says to George something like, "Here, take this walkie talkie." George refuses and Madeline says, "Jesus Christ..." If you look closely, her lips aren't moving.

Correction: She does say "Jesus Christ" it's just hard to see, because it cuts to a blurry image then goes to the other actor.


Corrected entry: In the scene where George(the security guard) is stuck under the truck, the rest of the people lift him out from underneath. When they are moving him away, his head is bobbling around. Later on, they can't move him because his neck is broken. If they moved his head at all, he would have died.

Correction: Movement of the head with a broken neck will not necessarily cause death. Broken vertebrae can cause damage to the nerves and/or spinal column and lead to irreversible results such as paralysis below the neck. That is exactly the case shown.

Corrected entry: When George the cop finds Roy, he asks if his cell phone works, which Roy responds that it doesn't. Then when you see him climbing through the wormhole, he's talking to somebody on his cell phone.

Correction: This is not a mistake in the movie, the guy told everyone his phone didn't work so he could look like the hero and find a way out of the tunnel himself. He firmly believed he knew best.

Corrected entry: In the scene when Stallone uses the plastic explosives to block the water from entering the tunnel which contains all the survivors, he climbs up on some wreckage and shoves the explosive charge into a big pile of mud. When he pulls his hand out, it's perfectly clean. One would think he would have at least some mud left on his arm, seeing how far he shoved it in.

Correction: His hand had to come out via the water. Therefore, that much rushing water cleaned his hand off.


Continuity mistake: In the same shot, note the top of the twin towers are in the clouds - its not a real nice day in NYC. But later when they're on the dock, there's not a cloud to be seen.
