The Sentinel

Continuity mistake: At the very beginning of the movie, when Kim Basinger is in the bedroom and walking towards the mirror, the movements of her reflection do not match her movements. She stops moving and her reflection continues to move. (00:04:25)


Continuity mistake: When Merriweather is shot, the killer is several meters away and down the stairs. But Garrison finds a shell casing right next to the body.

Jacob La Cour

Continuity mistake: When Eva Longoria first appears on screen, you can see her on a CCTV monitor, she then passes through the door, and the camera moves slightly to show her physically going through the door. You can still see the CCTV image and can see the door is closing, but when you look at the physical door she goes through, it's not moving. It's supposed to be the same door. (00:08:25)

Question: Is it really true that when you use a silencer the bullet slows down and is not as strong as if you did not use a silencer?

Jason Riley

Chosen answer: Sometimes. A suppressor, known commonly as a silencer, works by reducing the sound of firing by manipulating the escaping propellant gas, and sometimes by reducing the velocity of the bullet. It all depends on the type of suppressor that is used.
