Corrected entry: Notice how the truck has many number plates on the front? Are these trophies from other victims he has claimed?
Corrected entry: Watch the scene where the truck is gradually pushing the car into a passing train. Before the train arrives, a red gate comes down to stop the traffic. But when the car speeds off after the train has passed, the gate has completely disappeared, the car does not smash through it, and it does not raise back up, it just disappears.
Corrected entry: In the scene where the red car drives in neutral, descending the hill, we can see that the car increases in speed. At one point we can see the speedometer and the driver at the same time. Before that scene, the car had a speed around 50 miles per hour. But in the scene, the speed is only 30 miles per hour. Then we see the speed again and it is back increasing to 60 miles an hour. And the car was descending the hill all the time.
Corrected entry: It is obvious that the truck is much more powerful than the Plymouth, yet at the level crossing it has a lot of trouble shunting the Plymouth forward, even on sandy ground. So it seems that during this scene, the truck driver was only gently nudging the Plymouth to avoid actually shunting it into the passing train.
Corrected entry: Near the end of the movie, when David jams his briefcase to the accelerator and jumps from the car, the truck begins to push the car from behind toward the cliff edge. The next time we see the truck pushing it, the car is being pushed sidewards.
Corrected entry: When David gets run off the road, he smashes into the fence. Then he gets out of his car and closes the car door behind him. After spending a while in the cafe, he returns to his car and now the door is open. (00:25:30 - 00:41:00)
Corrected entry: At the cafe when David Mann begins accusing the man at the table, the man reacts by punching David in the guts and pushing him onto the pool table. He then takes another swing at him, but punches the light above the pool table instead of David. The chef runs over and tells the man that he has already hit him twice, when he had really only hit him the one time.
Continuity mistake: On the truck cab's rear window, there is some sort of air conditioning unit installed. In some shots, such as the gas station scene where David Mann is on the telephone, or the railroad crossing scene, the air conditioning unit has a support structure to hold it in place. In the rest of the film however, there is not any support structure to be seen.
