Live Free or Die Hard

Other mistake: Where does the fire in the gas pipes come from? Even though a lot of gas - and thereby pressure - is directed towards the power station, why do they blow up under ground far away from the power station?

Jacob La Cour

Other mistake: After the scene where the building explodes when the gas was rerouted to the station, there will be a shot of the main bad guy staring at the computer screen saying the connection failed. On one of the two connection lost screens, it says, "connection faild", this is not how you spell "failed". (01:16:45)

Other mistake: In the scene in which McClane and Farrell are in the car on the way to the Eastern Hub, the shots alternate between looking at McClane then looking at Farrell. When the stars are in profile there is visible through the subject's car window the landscape passing by, but the same hill appears outside each window. (01:00:55)

Other mistake: At the end Farrell is in the ambulance and talking to McClane. When doing so his hair is perfectly clean. After being through what he and McClane have been through in the last 24 hours, it's extremely unlikely his hair would be that clean. (01:58:35)

Other mistake: When the lights in the tunnel are switched off, you see that the cars that have been directed into the tunnel have their lights off. When you enter a tunnel, you are required by law to turn on your lights despite the lights in the tunnel. Sure, one or two drivers might ignore this obligation, but the whole avalanche of cars?

Thomas Gabriel: [Probing a gunshot wound in McClane's shoulder with his gun.] On your tombstone, it should say "Always at the wrong place at the wrong time."
John McClane: How about... [grunts.] Yippee-ki-yay... Motherfucker! [Grabs the gun and fires it through himself and into Gabriel.].



Just as McClane and Farrell are about to leave the Eastern Power Hub, Farrell goes on a long rant and his mouth does not match the words he is saying. [In the unrated version of the film, the rant concurs with Will's mouth movements, but the mistake is valid for the regular version.]



The film's title is a reference to New Hampshire's state motto "Live Free or Die." The film was shipped to theaters under the title "New Hampshire."
