Corrected entry: All of the hackers in the movie - including Acid Burn - are seen using Apple computers, but when they sit down to see Acid Burn's new laptop, they make reference to it being a Pentium variant [P6] chip. Apple does not use Intel processors.
Corrected entry: In the scene where Kate has the big party at her house, after someone gives Dade a bottle to drink from, he moves toward the back of the house to see Nikon. He walks backwards saying "Big man, big boots, you look good girl. Lay it out," but his mouth doesn't move at all.
Corrected entry: Nikon has photographic memory and has read the article on Dade Murphy/Zero Cool, as stated by him recalling the date. Yet late in the movie when Dade reveals that he was Zero Cool, everyone including Nikon seems surprised.
Corrected entry: How does Dade's mother know Cereal Killer's name? Dade doesn't exactly strike me as the kind of son who tells his mom all about his friends and what they did that day. Cereal doesn't introduce himself to Dade's mother when he goes into their apartment, but when Dade's mother pokes her head into his room and tells Kate to help herself to anything in the fridge, she knows Cereal's name.
Corrected entry: When Dade, Freak and Cereal killer go to Lord Nikon's Place and are watching TV, they begin by watching a news report about Richard Gill. Watch the report, it is the same scene from when after they bust Joey, which has not happened yet. In the background Joey is being taken down the stairs, with his mother behind and the computer boxes, also the dialog is exactly the same.
Corrected entry: Dade's new house at the beginning is a basement flat, as you see him walk up the steps onto the street near the start. However, inside the house, if you look out of the window during the scenes, the house is clearly above the ground and/or several stories up.
00:08:30 - 00:10:20
Corrected entry: This mistake takes place when Dade is chilling with Cereal, Phreak, and Nikon watching TV. Some reporter is interviewing Agent Gill, and if you look over his one shoulder, you can see Joey being taking away for hacking into The Gibson. How can this be on air when Joey gets busted the next day?
00:31:10 - 00:32:30
Corrected entry: When the "Hackers" are in the station trying to throw off the police, they tape the receivers of the phones together to stop them from tracing the call. The only thing is that they taped the ear piece of one to the ear piece of the other. That wouldn't work - it would have to be the ear piece to the mouth piece.
Corrected entry: When Acid Burn is talking to Crash Overide about her laptop she says "It has a P6 chip - thats 3 times faster than a Pentium". (P6 was the FIRST and slowest pentium) and he says "it has PCI bus" (on a slimline notepad?) it's got PCMCIA probably.
