Corrected entry: As John and Zeus are running to the park for the second bomb they are talking about the incident from the first film, John says that he threw Simon's "little" brother out of a window, yet when John was talking to the FBI agents they did not mention whether Simon was older or younger then Hans.barryween23
Corrected entry: The explosive the bad guys have chosen is not easily 'booby-trapped'. The two chemicals have to be mixed to produce an explosive. The fact that no one, including McClane, (who knows this) thinks to just clip one of the hoses and prevent the chemicals from mixing seems a little far-fetched.
Corrected entry: In the park, McClane and Zeus are challenged to fill one 5-gallon jug with only 4 gallons of water, using it and a 3-gallon jug. When they solve the problem, they put the 5-gallon jug with, supposedly, 4 gallons of water in it on the scale to deactivate the bomb; however, the 5-gallon jug, on the scale, is filled only halfway, no where close to where the 4-gallon mark should be.
Corrected entry: When the two officers go to rescue the kids that are stuck in the classroom they for some reason try and escape by going to the roof. However you see that there is a good solid two minutes and fifteen seconds left before the so called bomb is going to go off. Why wouldn't they just go out the front doors?
Corrected entry: After the subway explosion and the dump trucks are coming on the scene and the cop (who later gets killed) is waving them through. One of the lead terrorists is riding on the side of the truck. A few scenes earlier the same cop is in the van with McClane and the FBI agents looking at snapshots, and the same terrorist is shown, trademark square sunglasses and all. Some detective...
Corrected entry: Right after the train station explosion McClane is sitting down and talking to Zeus and Det. Lambert. McClane says "What were the odds of us making it down there on time?" which is replied by Zeus as "Zip". Zeus got to the phone at the train station on time, with time to spare. If McClane would have continued in the cab with him they would both have gotten there in time.
Corrected entry: The Germans say they are going to blow up the gold in the Long Island Sound, but they take the trucks up the aqueduct, which is on the other side of Manhattan on the Hudson River. They did not have enough time to go on the aqueduct and another bridge and end up on the Long Island Sound.
Corrected entry: In the scene where Bruce Willis kills the two bad guys in the truck in the aqueduct, he is walking towards the truck from behind left. When he shoots, he is still behind left of the truck. Then the camera changes and you see the blood spraying out of the bad guys torso. How could Bruce Willis be able to hit the torso of those guys if he was left behind the truck? It would have been okay if he had shot them from the front. That he was able to hit the guy sitting on the right side is really amazing.
Corrected entry: After Zeus and McClane escape the boat, Zeus asks Lambert to give McClane a quarter to go call his wife. However in the very last scene of the movie Zeus hands McClane a quarter to go call his wife. How on earth did he get that quarter? He obviously didn't have one the first time so why does he suddenly have a quarter now? Not like it would have mattered anyway, considering you don't need any money to make a collect call.
Corrected entry: When dealing with the binary liquid bombs you always see two equal volume containers with both containers completely full. As stated near the beginning of the movie the red liquid pumps into the clear in order to mix. If both tanks are full, how is there any volume left to pump in the other chemical in order to mix it? At least one of the tanks would need to be half full in order for there to be room to pump in the second chemical.
Corrected entry: Since Ricky was the one who read the report on the 14 great big dump trucks stolen from Statton Island, wouldn't he have noticed the 14 great big dump trucks that drove by him when "Bob Thompson" showed up?
Corrected entry: When Ricky and the two officers are leading the terrorists down into the subway, we see two of the terrorists tranquilize the officers. The shot then cuts to Ricky, who notices the downed officers and is shot. As soon as the shot cuts to Otto and the other terrorist shouting, the two who tranquilized the guards are in full police uniform. I wish I could get dressed in five seconds...
Corrected entry: Det. Lambert found the report saying that the chemical used in the bombs was stolen from a lab over the weekend, and that about 2000 pounds was stolen. But not only did we learn from Simon that there was 2400 pounds of the chemicals being used in the school bomb, but add that to the amounts used in the smaller more local bombs and the fairly large amount used on the boat and I'd say that around 2000 is a bit understated. The fact that the school bomb apparently contained more explosive than was stolen should have given them a bit of a clue...
Corrected entry: When the scene switches you see a young German guy talking to that big guy (the terrorist.) If you listen carefully, you can actually hear that some things they say are in Russian.
Corrected entry: When Zeus begrudgingly accompanies McClane to their first riddle site at the pay phone (where the terrorist tricks them into thinking there is a bomb in the trash can), an extra walks past them going towards the street corner. Seconds later when the camera angle switches, the same extra walks towards the camera again going the other way.
