Visible crew/equipment: There is a shot towards the end of the film, (just before Willis and Jackson exchange dialogue in the engine room) in which it shows the entourage of people boarding a smaller boat from the much larger ship. Look towards the bottom left corner of the screen as the boat pulls away - inside you can see the head of a female boom mike operator.

Visible crew/equipment: At the very end of the scene where McClane and Zeus take the businessman's car, just before the scene cuts, the boom mic can be seen reflected in the yellow car's back window as it is lowered, waiting for the "cut."

Suggested correction: How do you know that's a camera truck? Could be just any regular truck passing by.

Visible crew/equipment: In the taxi scene, you can see that the taxi is abnormally high, and there's a special strut rig under the front part of the car so it doesn't take a destructive beating in that whole racing scene.

Visible crew/equipment: At the very beginning of the film a bus passes the camera. A reflection of a crew member is visible. Its fast but clear enough to see that he has his arms crossed.

Visible crew/equipment: After the school evacuation scene starts the four kids trapped in the school look out the window to see what the commotion is. The next shot through the window grill shows a camera crew filming the evacuation from the street as they come up behind the cops on the upper right. Footage from the camera crew on the ground is proof of this. The footage is from the exact same time, about 30 seconds earlier in the movie. You see an African American boy and woman running off to the left of the screen through the police who are trying to guide everyone straight out from the stairs past the fence. The boy continues running but the woman is grabbed on her left arm by a cop who turns her back around to go through the fence. The boy is wearing a yellowish orange shirt and tan shorts and the woman in a brown outfit, a blouse with white buttons and pants. (01:40:10)

Factual error: 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 or over the bridge. They'd have to take the Civic Center ramp, do a u-turn under the Brooklyn Bridge approach then head back up the ramp to FDR Drive.

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.

Question: In the scene where Simon and his men overpower Felix Little of the Federal Reserve and continue to the elevator, what are the German lines being spoken by Simon Gruber? It sounds like "Danke well" when he pushes the drugged Mr. Little to the floor, and when he is in the elevator removing his tie his line sounds like "Ich biete". If someone knows the German words being spoken in these lines, your input would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

Answer: Danke well means "Well, thank you." Ich biete means "I offer."

Answer: The first one is Dutch: "dank you wel" - "Thank you very much". The second one "ich bin fertig" is German and means "I'm done".

No, Dutch is "Dank je wel" or "Dank you wel" and he didn't say that. He says "Danke Well" which is supposed to be "Danke woll" With means thank you in German, as said. In the elevator he says "Ich bitte" which means "I ask", which is kinda weird, just like "Ich biete." Maybe he meant "bitte", as in "you're welcome." to one of the others.

Oh I see, the letter is corrected to "you" automatically. Funny. "Dank uw wel" then.
