Corrected entry: When the guy from the bank is explaining the whole plot of the movie to Danny Glover just before Gary Busey shoots him from the helicopter, If you look out the window Mel Gibson is outside smoking looking up at them.

Corrected entry: When Mel Gibson is crying over his wife's picture, he pulls the magazine out of his pistol, ejects the round that is in it and pulls out the hollow point. He pulls back the slide on the Beretta 9mm and locks it open. He places the bullet in the breech and closes the slide. When he points the gun at himself, the hammer is not cocked to fire, although the slide was pulled back, which would have pushed the hammer down to be fired.

Corrected entry: When Mr. Joshua gives Riggs one final chance to tell what he knows, before being tortured by Endo, he says something to the effect of, "Endo here has forgotten more about torture than you or I will ever know." Okay...so, does he remember anything then? I get that at one point he knew more than they, but how much of that has he forgotten? Maybe he now knows less.
