Corrected entry: At 1:24:48 (the BMW's chasing the van), the lead BMW has a California front license plate (white with red script) but in the rear shots taken from behind the Beemers, the BMW's all have white and blue New York rear plates. Also the front plate is gone after the initial shot. (01:24:45)
Corrected entry: When John Smith is in the elevator, he has apparently switched the cameras in them. When the elevator which he is not in falls, the TV monitor he has been on goes fuzzy. Afterwards, he unhooks the camera from the elevator and a 'no signal' alert appears on a different monitor than that which he had been on initially.
Corrected entry: When the Smiths are preparing themselves to take on the final set of enemies at the end of the film, they are in what appears to be a wooden shed. Why do the bad guys not simply shoot it? They've got a lot of guns, including at least one rocket launcher. They should have been able to manage it between them.
Corrected entry: When John Smith is receiving information on Benjamin "Tank" Diaz, he is told the only weak spot is 10 miles north of the border. Jane Smith is told the only weak spot is just south of the border. Even though they receive different areas to go to, they show up at the same place. (00:27:00)
Corrected entry: In the car chase against the three BMW's, John shoots at them with his pistol, and we see the bullets bouncing off, Jane makes mention that they are "bullet proof"One BMW gets blown up with the grenade, yet a little while later Jane throws the mini van in a 180 and takes out the remaining 2 BMW's with her pistol.Foff44
Corrected entry: In the scene when Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt are in the Home store, Angelina spots two mannequins with clothes on. The female mannequin is wearing "housewife" clothes and the male mannequin is wearing a suit, yet when they come out after getting changed they are both wearing suits.
Corrected entry: At the end of the big fire fight in the homeware store, John and Jane both have dual Glock 18c Auto pistols. As they fire, the slides on the pistols never move. Also, the report is wrong. There should be a flash out of the top of the pistol toward the front due to cuts put in the barrel by Glock to help reduce muzzle climb.
Corrected entry: In a number of battle scenes we see red "laser" lines through the air, obviously from some firearm sighting gear. These would never be visible as lines unless the there was considerable dust in the air, you would only get a spot where the laser hit a surface.
Corrected entry: When the Smiths are in the basement during the shoot out with their agencies, a grenade bounces in and explodes under a tank of fuel oil, causing a tremendous explosion that levels the house. First, the shoot out in the kitchen showed the house was using natural gas, especially when one of them created a fireball by disconnecting the line (who then shut it off?), you wouldn't have both fuels in the house. Second, fuel oil burns but is not that volatile and would not create such an explosion.
Corrected entry: When we see John's office, he is listed on the door as John Smith with Professional Engineer below it. A Professional Engineer (P.E.) is not a type of engineer but a professional group designation. While it would likely be on the door, so would the actual type of engineer that he is supposed to be. His door should read John Smith, P.E. with the type of engineer (such as Civil Engineer or Construction Engineer) below it.
Corrected entry: In the scene where Brad Pitt is first shown performing a killing, he is playing poker with three people, until "Lucky" (the target, the original fourth poker player) comes into the room. Brad shoots him from under the armpit, then shoots the other three in quick succession. Then he is seen leaving the room and looking at the cards of the hand left unplayed. The table, chips and card have remained in place and there are no dead bodies in the room, though he has just killed four people there.
