Joe Campbell

Continuity mistake: When McClane and Zeus are chased after escaping from the aqueduct, look at the right front light of the Dodge Ram the bad guys are driving. It goes from being broken to intact several times. Also, when McClane and Zeus stop the same Dodge Ram afterwards on the bridge, both front lights have magically become intact again and even though now the hood is missing, it's still obvious that the whole front part of the truck is significantly less damaged than before.

TomDlgns

Continuity mistake: In the car chase scene where the Germans are in the Dodge Ram and Zeus and John are in the car, during the mid point of that scene you'll notice the ram has a hood, and a few seconds later it is missing it.

Continuity mistake: In the park with the water riddle, just before they argue about Zeus being a racist, you see both jugs. The 3 gallon jug is empty and the 5 gallon is possibly 3 gallons full. Then they argue. By the end of the argument, John says that the 3 gallon jug is exactly 2 gallons full and you see that the 5 gallon jug is full up, giving them the answer to the riddle.

Add time

Continuity mistake: In the taxi scene were you see the ambulance escort pull onto the road; you see John swing around a corner going very fast, when Zeus says "slow the fuck down McClane". He gets ready to pass a large black car but the next shot (an in car shot) you can see that he never passes the car.

Continuity mistake: In Harlem, when Zeus gets his arm cut by the black dude wielding the switchblade, another black dude is swinging the bottle toward McClane's head-with his left arm. The following scene, McClane gets his head injured from the same bottle wielded by the same dude-only this time wielded by his right arm not his left.

Continuity mistake: While in the police station, a chubby guy brings the suitcase with the liquid bomb and to explain how it works he dips a stick with the liquid and throws it away to make it explode. Watch now the guy behind him covering his hears: Headset off, then he puts it on; then suddenly, in a very brief shot, when he is behind the chubby man, the headset is off again. In the next shots he has it on.

Sacha

Continuity mistake: When the police van leaves McClane semi naked on the street, his beard is a mere shade. When he mets Zeus, 10 minutes later, his beard has grown much larger.

Continuity mistake: When the police get to Chester A. Arthur school and the kids are all in the auditorium, we see Detective Lambert walk into the auditorium wearing no badge in his jacket pocket. In the very next shot, he is wearing it again.

Continuity mistake: There is a big stain of wet blood on the back of Zeus just after McClane burns the cuffs to escape from the bomb on the ship. When they run outside the stain is dry, smaller and blurry.

Continuity mistake: When they drive through the park and jump off the rock they land on a pile of leaves which covers the hood. Some of those leaves fall off but not all of them - in the next shot the hood is completely clean.

Continuity mistake: There is a scene where Samuel L. Jackson and Bruce Willis are in a crowded park, and they have to defuse a bomb by measuring out water. Before they do that, he picks up a cell phone and calls a bad guy with it. When he is beginning the conversation, the cell phone antenna is down. They change to a different angle, and the antenna is up.

Continuity mistake: When Willis washes the blood off his face after shooting the bad guy in the elevator, the "towel" he wipes his face has no blood on it at all. Even after washing the worst off with the water it would still be full of blood.

Continuity mistake: When the taxi is driving through the park, the damage to it is constantly changing. Most noticeable is a dent on the driver's front wing.

A Demon

Continuity mistake: When Samuel L Jackson runs down the stairs in the subway station, he checks the clock, which reads 10:19:10. Then when the train destroys the clock a bit later, the time's now 10:20:24, though well over 2 minutes has passed (only counting Samuel L Jackson's scenes, as Bruce Willis' presumably take place simultaneously. Counting them separately it's even longer).

Jon Sandys

Continuity mistake: When Bruce and Sam are driving through the park and jump the concrete ramp out into the street, they land (or drive over) 2 taxi cabs parked there. In the close-up shot of their taxi crushing the front and rear of the other 2 parked ones, you can see that an entire wheel disconnects from one of the parked taxis and begins to fling out into the street with great speed. In the following wide-angle shot of their taxi swerving into the road, that wheel is nowhere to be seen. It should have bounced across the road.

Continuity mistake: Near the end, after the huge gold heist, Simon Peter Gruber and his psychotic lover, Katya, engage in rough celebratory sex, ripping off each other's clothing, such that Katya's upper torso and black lace brassiere are fully exposed. A few minutes later, when John McClain interrupts their sex, Katya's shirt is fully closed.

John McClane: What are they doing?
Zeus: Sitting in the fucking road! Waiting on the moor! How the hell should I know?

Mistakes

When McClane and Zeus take the little hatchback from the bank location, they run up the ramp by the Brooklyn Bridge and McClane looks to see the dump trucks aren't on the bridge. Zeus then spots them on FDR Drive and they speed off down the ramp to FDR Drive. The ramp they were on doesn't connect to the ramp they took to give chase. It only heads towards City Hall then over the bridge. They'd have to cross the bridge, do a u-turn in Brooklyn then come back across to Manhattan.

Trivia

Someone asked: Has anyone EVER figured out the math to that damn water-in-a-bottle-diffuse-the-bomb riddle? I actually have, in case anyone's wondering about it. If I remember right, they've got a 5, a 3, and they need 4. Fill the five, tip it into the 3, leaving 2. Empty out the three, and put the 2 in it. Then fill the five, and use that jug to fill up the remainder of the 3, which will leave 4 in the 5 gallon jug. Another possible way to do this: You fill up the 3 and tip these three gallons into the 5. Then you fill up the 3 and use this to fill up the 5. This leaves you with one in the 3 and five in the 5. Then you empty the 5 and tip the one from the 3 over, then fill up the 3. Then you've got three in the 3 and one in the 5. After you've tipped over the three this will leave you with four in the 5.
