Live Free or Die Hard
Live Free or Die Hard mistake picture

Revealing mistake: When McClane goes into the icy room in the power station, look at the pipe to the side of the acrobat: it's in shot a few seconds and you can see that the writing on the pipe is reversed, revealing that in the editing room, the shot was flipped.

Revealing mistake: Airbags are made out of a super strong fabric material with heavy weaving. There's no way McClane would be able to tear it. You can see the texture difference between McClane's fake airbag and the real passenger side airbag.

Ian Hunt

Revealing mistake: Just after the F-35 explodes there is a shot of the flames receding up the ramp McClane slid down. Also in this shot, Rubble goes uphill, showing the shot was reversed. (01:51:20)

Revealing mistake: In the tunnel, as John does the 180 handbrake turn, if you look on the floor you will see skid marks exactly where he performs the 180 turn. Clearly from previous takes. (00:40:00)

Revealing mistake: When the bomb explodes in Farrell's apartment, you can see the man in the room who gets blown against the wall is a dummy.

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."
