Corrected entry: When the Lear jet is starting to take off from the bridge, the pilot selects the landing gear down. He would have put them down before landing.
Corrected entry: When Gamble and Street are in the bank, Gamble takes the lead. Before he shoots the terrorist, You can see that he is left handed, but in the firing shot he is triggering the gun with right hand, and after that he is shown left handed in the next shot.
Corrected entry: When Deke is displaying his "sixpack" at the table, a hand is seen putting money into his belt. In the next shot, his belt is bare again and we see Jim Street "breaking out some money" and inserting it into Deke's belt.
Corrected entry: In the scene where the helicopter is shot down, the person who shoots at it aims at the helicopter but he would have to aim above it because the bullet would fall down from that distance.
Corrected entry: When the Learjet is taking off from the bridge the limo can easily keep up with the jet. A jet accelerates within seconds to 200 km/h and I doubt a limo can drive that fast. If it could it'd be at the same level with the jet only for seconds because the jet takes off. In the scene they stay level for several seconds.Ronnie Bischof
Corrected entry: When the team is trapped in the sewer behind a metal gate, they decide to use the claymore to blow the door out. When it's armed and ready, Street shoots. The M18 claymore is an anti-personnel device containing 700 ball-bearings, and these balls are lethal up to 100 metres out. You don't want to be within shooting distance. This aside, a claymore is made with plastic explosives, which means that it is very stable and can't be detonated without an electrical force. Shooting a claymore does nothing.
Corrected entry: When Alex Montel is driving through the streets, there is a clear picture of a SWAT promo poster hanging from one of the buildings.
Corrected entry: At the beginning of the last fight scene between Street and Gamble, Gamble begins the fight by slamming a railroad stake through Street's hand. Yet, Street is able to use that hand to freely swing at Gamble throughout the whole fight. I would think that he would be in too much pain to fight, or at least not even use that hand, if he had a railroad stake driven through his hand.
Corrected entry: When Gamble and Street are getting moved down in their division, the chief calls Street back in to talk to him. Throughout their conversation the chrome garbage can next to the chief shows the reflection of the cameraman. You may think it is just Street, but if you look closely you can tell that the color of his shirt is black, not blue, and he is wearing short sleeves.Jackie Menechino
Corrected entry: When Street first introduces his modified ramming device, he says it would be affixed to a truck bumper and rammed into the wall. When they use it, somehow, an explosive charge has been loaded into the back to force the grappler through the wall. Now, considering it is a hollow tube, supported by (admittedly, four strong) humans, wouldn't the result be that the hook hits the wall and bounces back, perhaps leaving a dent? Do those four people really have the stopping power necessary to hold the tube firmly enough so that the hook is fired through the wall? How cheaply are homes built in So. Cal.?Kaite13
Corrected entry: When the crime lord escapes from the bus, he is thrown to the ground and handcuffed in the middle of the street. The camera angle changes and he is now being handcuffed on the sidewalk.
Corrected entry: I don't know much about the real SWAT but isn't very sexist to turn down a police officer for SWAT just because she's a woman?
Corrected entry: When they use Street's ramming device to pull out the wall of the house, the camera angle inside the house shows a couch which is about 5 feet away from the wall. After they pull the wall down, you can see the couch is now firmly attached to the wall as the wall is standing up in the front yard. You also see a number of items laying around the wall that were not seen from the inside view.MCKD
Corrected entry: Being an international mob boss, Montel should have quite a few henchmen. How come none of them come to his rescue?
Corrected entry: When the S.W.A.T. team was practicing hostage rescue from the plane they threw a rope over the top of the plane and two of the members were going to pull the rope on one side of the plane to hoist another member up on the other side of the plane, but when the two members pulled down on the rope it took at least a second before the other member starting rising. There was no slack in the rope so as soon as they pulled he should have started moving.jaws65
Corrected entry: This mistake will only be apparent to those living in Los Angeles. During the second attempt at freeing the drug lord, all the rail stops listed in the movie are wrong. The 7th street station is underground below buildings, so there would be no area for the police to park their cars as shown. Second, the attempt took place at 7th st and Hope st, the 7th st station is about 2 blocks north from them, while the Pershing Square station is about a mile and a half from their location. This said, the escapees would have had to drive to the Pershing Square station rather than walk, while the police heading to cut them off would just have to run a little to reach them.
Corrected entry: After the scene where the crime lord gets busted out of the prison truck by his bald buddy posing as a cop, there is a press conference held by the LAPD. They mention that two men assaulted the prison bus with AK-47's. They weren't. One was carrying a silenced pistol, and the other was carrying something that looked like an Uzi.
Corrected entry: At the shooting range, during the SWAT training session, Hondo makes a bet with some of the other SWAT officers that Jim Street could beat TJ McCabe in a shooting challenge. All of the other officers are shocked to hear about such a bet, with Boxer specifically saying "Come on, Hondo. He's from the Gun Cage." Wasn't Street just a member of the SWAT team a few months ago? In fact, some of the officers who were so surprised at the bet were the same ones that complimented Street after the screw-up at the bank. It's almost as if they forgot Street was ever a SWAT member at all.
