Corrected entry: When Frank rolls his car in mid-air to tear the bomb off with the crane hook, this is totally unreal. The car weighs much more than the crane hook, so it would just bounce the crane hook out of the way. This trick would only work if the crane hook was welded solidly to the jib.kenstrachan
Corrected entry: Frank is forced to drive off with the little kid because a sniper is aiming his gun at the kid and Lola has her gun pressed against Frank's groin. In the car chase that follows, it is visible that Lola does not point her gun at Frank anymore. Yet, Frank does not seize any of the numerous opportunities to kill or get rid of her.
Corrected entry: When the plane starts spinning sideways in the air, the amount of force would have ripped off the tail fin.
Corrected entry: When Max's father collapses while walking away from his press conference, a woman behind him wearing red screams loudly. The problem is, she starts screaming way, way before he collapse or does anything out-of-ordinary. He takes a sip of champagne and coughs a bit, then she starts screaming, then he coughs harder and collapses, then she screams louder. The actress must have thought that he was going down and when he was only coughing and hit her cue early. Nobody would start screaming like that if someone coughed a bit immediately after taking a sip of a drink.
Corrected entry: When Frank jumps his car from one building to the next, it doesn't matter how fast he is going. After getting through the concrete barrier, his car would not glide down as it appears to do in the film, but rather, would probably go a short distance before simply free-falling to the ground.
Corrected entry: The Audi with the W12 engine is an incredibly quick car, certainly far quicker than anything Miami Police would have, yet Frank struggles to maintain any kind of gap over them.
Corrected entry: When Frank is escaping the hospital Lola sprays his car with her machine pistols. When bullets hit bullet proof glass they penetrate partially, they don't spark on the glass. Furthermore the bullet proof part of the body is internal so the rounds would have left pockmarks along the body. Later just before being carjacked by Lola her boss states that bullet proof glass can't stop a 7.62 armour piercing round. True, but the machine pistols Lola use are not 7.62 calibre; if Frank knows enough to realise his armour wouldn't stop a 7.62 round, he should know that the machine pistols weren't 7.62's.
Corrected entry: Frank's cell phones in the movie are Nokia 8910i's. Even though Nokia's product placement department keeps sneaking that phone into American movies, that phone will not work in the US GSM band. Frank would have gotten a 'No Service' message.
Corrected entry: When Frank is driving Jack home from school, they arrive at Jack's home. As Frank is beginning his turn into the driveway, Jack is not in the car. In the next shot, Jack is sitting in the middle of the back seat, visible through the windshield. (00:06:45)
Corrected entry: In the scene where Frank is fighting the biggest guy he has to fight in the movie, taking place on a boat in a warehouse, the guy he is fighting rips both sleeves off of Frank's jacket and one sleeve off of his shirt. In the next scene, where Frank arrives at his car, he has put his jacket back on and it has both sleeves intact.
Corrected entry: After Frank jumps his car from the parking garage to the rooftop, he is seen driving above an alley with his car's tires straddling two adjacent buildings. He didn't land that way, so how did his car get there, and how did he get it back down?
Corrected entry: When Frank is riding the water jet with the random woman as his passenger saddled up behind him, in one close-up shot of Frank the red wrist-band of the jet's ignition key is visible on Frank's wrist, although it is obvious that he neither had the time to put it on nor to take it off once he got on land. At the same time, if he did not put on the wrist-band (as we did not see him put it on) and he threw the actual rider (the woman) to his back, he would not have been able to ride the jet as it is mostly probable that the original rider had the wrist-band on her and when tossing the woman to the back-saddle the ignition key should have been pulled out and the jet's motor should have died.
Corrected entry: In the scene where Frank jumps his car from a parking garage to an adjacent rooftop, he smashes his car through a cinder-block wall, but when he lands, his car's front end has no damage.
Corrected entry: When Frank grabs the antidote off the street, after it almost gets hit by a semi, it starts raining. When he jumps out of the building to catch the antidote, the sky is blue, not raining.
Corrected entry: Aboard the plane, the pilots claim the landing gear will not come up. The co-pilot goes to check on it, and before he gets there, he is attacked by the main character. Then there is a shot of the underside of the plane, with all the landing gear magically up, without anyone having done anything.
