Plot hole: Since they took down the telephone network, it would have been impossible for Justin Long's character to even be speaking to the emergency response woman for the car, much less send a signal to start the car up.

Suggested correction: Is it possible this is a satellite phone call akin to Onstar?

Plot hole: The hackers cause a massive traffic jam by manipulating the street lights. Yet, only minutes later, the streets are conveniently empty when McClane is being chased by the chopper. Sure, one or two streets were secured by police, but the chase scene goes through many more streets. (00:23:15 - 00:38:55)

Plot hole: When in the tunnel, McClane gets back into the cop car and leaves Farrell, he drives very quickly. After the helicopter blows up, it is only a few seconds before Farrell finds McClane. Even running at his top speed, Farrell could not have reached McClane's position so quickly. (00:42:00)

Plot hole: Why would Gabriel use a government vehicle at the end of the film that could be easily tracked and give his position away?

New this month Suggested correction: Gabriel using a Government tracked van isn't really a plot hole. The plot hole should actually be how Bowman was able to track it considering Gabriel turned off the satellites. No satellites means no GPS tracking.

Plot hole: After McClane, agent Johnson, and Ferrell leave in the police car, Agent Johnson radios another agent to have DC police clear a path for them. Then on Gabriel's screen it says they have a voice match to Farrell. The problem is Farrell never said a word, so how would they have a voice match to him? Without the voice match they never should have found them.

Suggested correction: The agent says "Ferrell" over the radio which in turn gets picked up as a name match on Gabriel's screen as they were scanning for anyone using that key word. Not Ferrell's actual voice but anyone mentioning his name over the radio.

If it was just looking for anyone saying the word Farrell it would have been a "voice" match. A voice match implies but they got a match to Farrell's voice.
