Corrected entry: When Agent Perez arrives at the Defense headquarters, there's a shot of a helicopter landing. The US Flag emblem near the top of the elevator is reversed, probably meaning that they flipped the shot.
Corrected entry: Air patrols are always conducted with two or more aircraft, however there is only the F-16 ARIA ejects the pilot.
Corrected entry: When Jerry and Rachel are running away from the FBI, through the airport, they are instructed to go through the emergency exit. There is a lock on the door that can only be opened with an access card. The computer opens the door for Jerry and Rachel, and locks out the FBI. This makes no sense because it was an EMERGENCY EXIT and should have been open for everybody.
Corrected entry: The entire movie hinges on something that is an impossibility. One's twin cannot remove a biometric lock from a machine. This might be possible if it only compared DNA, as identical twins have the same DNA. This, however, is where the similarities end, as a hand scan would have been invalid, because of different fingerprints. The facial/retinal scan should have been invalid because the retinas would have been different, as well as their faces, as a result of different environments (i.e., scars, hair, facial hair, etc.). Finally, and the biggest hole, the voice print scanner. Maybe they would have been similar enough for comparison; however, I simply cannot believe they would have been identical.
Corrected entry: Although this destroys the whole plot, there is no point in an evil supercomputer needing human beings to commit crimes. ARIA is powerful enough to control any electronic device in the country and should be powerful enough to conquer the United States. Many film critics have pointed this out.
Corrected entry: Ethan Shaw would never have been allowed to operate ARIA alone. Government policy holds that anytime high security material is being handled, there must be two or more individuals in the room at all times.
Corrected entry: Where Aria says, "Hard Drive 3 is malfunctioning" or something and the guy goes in to get it, he should have been able to eject a Dynamic NAS system from the console. Yet he has to go inside and manually remove it. Also, re the point that they drain the liquid nitrogen and the freezing thing: that isn't the liquid nitrogen. It's a pool of water or something. The liquid nitrogen was drained into the "dangerous waste ejection chamber" as stated by the officer.
Corrected entry: When the orchestra is playing at the State of the Union address, there are cymbals and drums heard. The only percussion seen when the whole group is shown is bells.
Corrected entry: When Jerry ducks in front of a car to avoid the remote control plane in the tunnel, he ducks in front of a Dodge Avenger. When Jerry steps away from the front of the car, it is a Chrysler Sebring. He gets into this car and drives away. He is then seen racing to the US Capitol in a Dodge Avenger.
Corrected entry: Although it moves the plot along, it makes no sense for ARIA to force Rachel to deliver a bomb to the Capitol building, since ARIA has the ability to control military aircraft and could just bomb the building herself.
Corrected entry: While the youth orchestra is playing the national anthem at the President's speech, the are several shots of a security camera showing Sam and the music notes being played. It looks like ARIIA is observing the scene, waiting for the note which is supposed to cause the explosion. How is that possible since Agent Perez has destroyed ARIIA several scenes before? (01:40:55 - 01:42:30)
Corrected entry: The involvement of Jerry in this movie is completely unnecessary. Throughout the movie, ARIA continued her plans to activate Quarantine. She had already delivered the crystal and the sonic device, and the concert was already arranged. So why did she need Jerry to release the lockout if everything was already in place to carry it out?
Corrected entry: When the Secretary of Defense leads Agent Perez to the B36 floor, there are Marines under arms and covered (have their hats on) yet they do not salute. Any Marine under arms is required to salute any higher ranking officer, including the President and Vice President, and would have been required to salute the Secretary of Defense, who is in his chain of command.
Corrected entry: I can understand how Jerry can be shot 3 times by secret service and live, BUT the other two characters fall in the "liquid nitrogen" that keeps the computer cool and they live? the nitrogen would kill them instantly.
