End of Days

Factual error: The priest says that St. John saw the number 666 in his vision, but it was actually 999 inverted. St. John wouldn't read modern Arabic numerals like we do, it would be Roman numerals. The number 666 would actually be DCLXVI. (01:05:40)

Continuity mistake: After the priest writes down 666 on a piece of paper, he holds it upside down to reveal that it is 999. When we cut back to him a few seconds later, the numbers look completely different. (01:05:40)

Continuity mistake: In the scene were Arnold disconnects the carriages of the train, near the end, he has to jump across the gap. When we first see the gap it is a certain distance, the camera angle changes and it's a bigger gap, then the angle changes and it's closer, there is no way Arnold could have jumped that big gap. (01:42:35)

Factual error: As the subway trains are disconnecting, Arnold fires a 203 grenade launcher at Satan, knocking him back onto the other train. A 40mm grenade doesn't arm itself until about 15-25 meters, so unless Satan jumped extremely far, the round would not have detonated. (01:43:05)

Continuity mistake: Just when Jericho catches the priest jumping off the rooftop with Jericho hanging from the helicopter. in the next shot, his partner yells, "He's Got Him!"

Continuity mistake: When Satan enters the church demanding to know where Christine York is, one of the priests approaches him with a crucifix. The camera is facing the priest, Satan grabs the crucifix and stabs the priest right in the centre of his forehead (just above the eyebrow line). The camera angle changes to facing Satan and when the priest hits the deck, the crucifix is sticking out of his head higher up and above his left eyebrow. (01:22:30)

Continuity mistake: When Arnie is in the church the things on the tables keep changing - in one shot we candles on it but in the next we see a cross. (01:46:25)

Continuity mistake: At the beginning of the movie, when Arnold and the Stryker Security crew are protecting the man in the limo, pay attention to the crowd. Right when they arrive at the building, and begin to get out the vehicles the pedestrians begin to duck and run for no apparent reason. Especially noticeable in the shot, right before Arnold says "We're exposed". (00:16:30)

Continuity mistake: In the train sequence near the end as Arnold shoots Satan out of the train, he flies toward the other carriage and starts to fall short, then in the next shot he lands ass first in the train. (01:43:10)

Continuity mistake: When Satan shows Arnold the bandits who killed his family, Arnold tries to catch one of them, falls through the bandit, toppling the Christmas tree. But when Satan changes the flat back to normal (with no tree) we can see the tree standing upright as it disappears. (01:12:20)

Continuity mistake: In the subway scene, after Christine has given the bum the money and he shatters, his face hits the floor with the top of his head towards Christine, and his face away from her, when the shot changes to a close-up, his head has turned, and is facing her. (00:30:25)

Factual error: Arnold's wife and daughter are shot once each. There should not be blood on all four walls of the room.

Continuity mistake: Arnold fires a grenade at the devil, which knocks the devil back into his own train-cart, sliding him all the way back to the end. However, it's the front of the cart that explodes.


Father Kovak: You think you've seen everything? There's a whole world you've never dreamed of. Thomas saw it, and it destroyed him.
Jericho Cane: I've seen a lot, but nothing would ever make me cut out my tongue.

More trivia for End of Days

Question: Why does Satan go through the trouble of hiring protective detail at the beginning of the film? Bullets have no effect on him, and even if he was hit, he could just make the claim that the shooter missed. And it's not like he's overly worried about people discovering his true identity, since he blackmails and corrupts people throughout the movie.


Chosen answer: Satan had to protect the host's body from harm by the Catholic priests who might try to stop him with holy "weapons." At the end, when Jericho impales himself on Michael's sword, Satan is cast out of Jericho's body because of the holy power of the sword.
