Revealing mistake: When fighting with Targo on the boat, McClane pulls a chain, which trips Targo over. When we see Targo being tripped from above, you can see it is a stunt double - not only is he bigger than the actor playing Targo, but also his hair is grey unlike Targo's brown.
Revealing mistake: When they are being chased in the Mercedes, McClane tells Carver to pull the fuse for the anti-lock brakes. When Carver says he won't know which fuse is which, McClane tells him to pull them all. If Carver were to do this, he would cut electrical power to critical functions, such as the fuel pump or ignition system.
Revealing mistake: When the truck is being pulled off of the bridge by the ship, if you look closely right before the truck plummets towards the water, there is no engine, transmission, or anything else in the engine compartment of the truck, which was left exposed after the hood fell off in an earlier wreck.
Revealing mistake: Right after the explosion, when Simon walks up to a detective and introduces himself as an adjuster for the bank, he asks if the detective can show him the way down.
