Falling Down

Visible crew/equipment: After D-Fens has crossed the golf course and climbed into the garden with the family barbecue, he slumps against a wall as he talks to the family. We get a close-up of D-Fens for a good 30 seconds or so, and during this time the camera lens is very clearly visible as a reflection in D-Fens' glasses. (01:26:40 - 01:28:10)

Visible crew/equipment: In the beginning of the movie, during the traffic jam, the camera pans from D-FENS to the car in front of him and then to the right to the car with the Garfield toy stuck to the window. You can see equipment (a statue, some wires and a white screen) in the reflection of the window. (00:01:30)

Continuity mistake: When D-Fens attacks the Oriental shopkeeper he puts his foot on the shopkeeper's neck and his socks are clearly visible as white. However, a few minutes later when he removes his shoe to examine a hole in it on the hill, before being confronted by the two homeboys - his socks have somehow changed to black. (00:10:20 - 00:18:15)

Bill Foster: We are not the same. I'm an American and you're a sick asshole.
Nick: Just what kind of vigilante are you?
Bill Foster: I am not a vigilante. I am just trying to get home to my little girl's birthday party and if everyone will just stay out of my way, nobody will get hurt.

Question: Why does the Beggar throw the apple at D-fens? I found it odd since he just gave him a briefcase and a lunch.

Gavin Jackson

Chosen answer: Because the beggar thought there would be items of value in the briefcase and he was frustrated that there was nothing in there. So in frustration he threw the apple at D-Fens.
