Corrected entry: In the final shoot out scene in the church at the end of the movie, Travolta shoots at Cage with a semi-automatic hand gun. However, the shots fired were from a fully automatic firearm.
Corrected entry: Nicholas Cage's eyes are green originally, and John Travolta's are blue. After the operation/conversion of the two characters, the eyes did not change, and they should have. After the operation, Nicholas Cage's eyes should be blue and John Travolta's green. The eyes should have been switched, and it is clear that they aren't wearing any lenses, because of course if they had been wearing lenses then Castor-as-Archer would have removed them. There is also no sign of any "eye color changing" during the operation.
Corrected entry: In the scene where Archer is receiving Troy's face, we see the laser cutting the outlines of his face. There seems to be nothing done to disconnect the nerves and skin from his eyelids, nose, and so forth, however the mask lifts the face cleanly away from his head.
Corrected entry: Troy is being kept alive by life support machines. In the operating theatre the machines are gone so shouldn't he be dead? And if he recovered enough to not be on the machines why did they go ahead with their plan?
Corrected entry: It makes no sense that Archer's wife takes a risky blood sample from Troy, when it would have been easier to simply take some from the real Archer, who enters the house bleeding.
Corrected entry: The secret supermax high security prison, the bad guys brother is allowed to leave why? just on the say so of an FBI agent. For a facility like this to remain secret, a prisoner would have to remain for life. NO-ONE would or could EVER be released for any reason, its very existence was as much a secret as its location. In effect they would be dead to the outside world.
Corrected entry: When Castor is in John Travolta's body, he goes "home" and makes a romantic dinner for his wife - the camera pans across the table, laden with a lot of things (spaghetti and meatballs, two lobsters). The wife is thrilled. Later on, when Nicolas Cage (John Travolta) is in a scene with the wife at the hospital, trying to convince her that he is her husband inside, he tells a touching story about their first date and how he took her out for surf and turf and didn't know she was a vegetarian, and she only ate bread, and she broke her tooth. Blah, blah, blah - it was very touching. Wouldn't the wife have noticed something was wrong if her "husband" made her a meal featuring lobsters and meatballs?
