Corrected entry: A couple of times during the film, Jamie Foxx calls Jennifer Garner's character, 'Jen'. Her name in the film is 'Janet', but he did not say 'Jan'.

Correction: Watch the movie with subtitles, he does call her Jan.

Corrected entry: The film claims that Saudi Arabia is the largest oil supplier to the U.S. That is false. The largest percentage of oil imported into the U.S. comes from Canada.

Correction: Prior to 2001 Canada was not the largest crude oil supplier, Saudi Arabia was. Since that time, Canada has surpassed Saudi Arabia in exports to the US. However, the US exports back to Canada almost the same amount of oil for refining and other purposes. Therefore, while Canada does have the largest percentage export of crude oil to the US, it is not the largest *net* exporter to the US. In volume of oil imported to the US, Saudi Arabia is behind Canada and Mexico, but this doesn't take into account the crude shipped into Canada and Mexico for further refining, so with that logic, Saudi Arabia is the largest *net* exporter to the US.

Revealing mistake: By the end of the movie, when Jamie Foxx is holding the dying Arabian cop, you can see that Jamie's neck injury looks extremely false.

Adam Leavitt: Sir, not to beat a dead horse, but if there was ever a time for us to put boots on Saudi sand, I mean, don't you think this is it?
Janet Mayes: There's no way, Adam. They will never allow it.
Adam Leavitt: Then let's just ask.
Janet Mayes: The Saudi Royal Family cannot appear as if they're losing control. If they lose control of their country, lose control of the people, they risk losing control of the oil. And that's not going to happen.

Trivia: On the day where the big explosion was filmed on the Gilbert, Arizona set, the sound was so enormous, that surrounding communities called '911, unaware that a movie was being filmed.
