Continuity mistake: When Barnes and the SWAT team reach the Annex Skywalk, they get on the moving sidewalk. Before the terrorist stops the moving sidewalk by pressing the button, the sidewalk is already stopped, even though the light was still green at the time.

posty

Factual error: One scene has a shot of an aircraft, in flight, with a red light on the starboard (right) wing and a green light on the port (left) wing. Backwards.

Trivia: The film is based on a book called "58 Minutes" by Walter Wager. In the book, it is the hero's young daughter, not his wife, that is on one of the planes.

Question: How could McClane tell that the ammo in the blue labeled magazine were blanks?

Answer: If you listen, he says something to the effect of "I know I had that guy in my sights", meaning he is amazed he missed. So he checks the bullets in the magazine to see if that's the problems. Blanks are simply shells with no bullet that are crimped shut to hold the powder in. The difference between blanks and live rounds is very obvious even at a glance.

Answer: Just before the attack on the church, Grant and his team switch the red taped clips from their weapons with blue taped clips. The blue clips carried blanks and the red clips carried real ammo. After firing on a guy but not hitting him, McClane checked the clip and realised that the gun he used had blanks and that Grant and his team were involved with freeing Esperanza.
