Corrected entry: When Gin (Zeta Jones) is stealing the mask, she uses the switch and then sticks a chewed piece of gum on the stand. If she leaves the gum stuck there, security could easily do a DNA test on it. If she replaces it with that monkey mask, where was that the entire time? She couldn't have hidden that in her jacket without it being seen.
Corrected entry: When Gin is at the office at 10:30 and then she goes to London and it is dawn in London. So it is around 6:30AM and Mac is going into work but watch the time. If she goes to the airport and then goes to London she should be there at least 8:30.
Corrected entry: Ving Rhames seems to imply that his car had a 6 disc CD changer and a turbocharger. The car in the movie is a 1998 Jaguar XKR, which used a 4.0L NA V8 engine, which was not turbocharged. It could be argued that the character was just not aware of what motor his car had in it, but Rhames was so concerned about the car, it's doubtful that he was unaware of what his car had in it.
Corrected entry: Connery and Zeta-Jones were staying in a small building among a group of similar buildings from which they could see Petronas Towers in Kuala Lumpur; however, these buildings are actually in the state of Malacca, which is far from Kuala Lumpur (more than 100km).
Corrected entry: In the scene on the bridge Sean tells Catherine to meet him at the Pudu train station, the next day they meet at the Bukit Jalil station.
Corrected entry: Can anyone explain why the "test of the Y2K bug" is occurring at midnight on 12/31/99?
Corrected entry: In the scene where Catherine Zeta-Jones knocks out the crook with a vase and jumps into the car with Sean Connery, one of the bad guys jumps into the car and sticks a knife through the roof and tears it open. Yet when they park the car outside the hotel a few moments later the roof is in pristine condition.
Corrected entry: When getting ready to steal the mask, Zeta-Jones's character drops some sort of transmitter on the highly polished stone floor in front of the pedestal that holds the mask. If they put the dot on the floor in front of the pedestal, why don't they just come up there, instead of the other side of the room? There are no lasers immediately in front of the pedestal.
Corrected entry: At the end in the train station there are no lights hanging from the ceiling. Then as the scene goes on the lights appear one set at a time very quickly.
Corrected entry: When they're pulling the lst heist, they use fingerprint powder on a keypad. But why would they do that, as they know the combination? "Don't use a cannon to kill mosquitoes."
Corrected entry: Connery and Jones are cutting their way through a stone floor by setting off four line-cutting charges arranged in a square. Much is made of setting off each charge to coincide with the four chimes of a clock which, supposedly, covers up the sound of the respective blasts. But since these charges touch each other at the corners of the square, setting off the first one would have immediately set off all the others! Admittedly it isn't as dramatic that way, but that's how explosives work in the real world.
Corrected entry: The plan is based on advancing the bank's computer clock by 10 secs so it shows 12:00:00 at 11:59:50. But you can see that people in Kuala Lumpur celebrate the New Year also at 11:59:50. Why is that - do they all measure time by the bank's computer clock?
Corrected entry: At the beginning, Mac said to Gin that he stole 5 superchips at Cryptonik, each worth $4 million. At the end when he gave the chips to the FBI agent, he said to him that these are four chips worth $5 million each.
Corrected entry: At the beginning of the scene of the train station platform, look at the ceiling. There are lights hanging from the ceiling, and in a split second, they all disappear.
Corrected entry: When Catherine Zeta-Jones is in Haas' shop, she casually tosses the, "cheap Victorian knock-off" around in her hands. Moments later, after she smashed it on Haas' head, you see the little microfilm vial lying amongst the rubble. Shouldn't she have heard the microfilm rattling around inside the vase while she was playing with it?
