Question: How did Frank know where Cooper lives?

Casual Person

Chosen answer: He's ex CIA and considered R.E.D. (Retired and Extremely Dangerous). This is not just because of his fighting skill, but because of his knowledge and access to resources and how to use them. He just broke into the CIA Headquarters as well and is a skilled agent from another era. It is easy to assume he used his resources and experience to find Cooper's family just by seeing Cooper's face. He would easily known how to find out his identity.

Question: Sarah stated that she and Frank first knew each other by talking over the phone, but what exactly was it that first got them having conversations over the phone in the first place?

Chosen answer: The check he got and keeps tearing up. The first time he didn't get it was probably a legitimate error and he did not get the check, so called her company to get a new one, and then fell in love with her voice so continued to destroy the checks to keep talking to her.

Question: When Agent Cooper is looking at Frank's file, why is the majority of the writing blanked out?

00:29:15

Casual Person

Chosen answer: As explained in the DVD commentary, the reason a lot of Frank's missions were called black operations, or Black Ops, is because they were meant to be off the record, "off the books". Yet they would still keep documentation of the mission during the mission to keep track of the progress and details. But once the mission was over, they'd black out any information that they didn't absolutely need as many Black Ops are illegal.

Question: Why is Marvin wearing a plastic sheet over his suit in the scene where he, Frank and Joe are interrogating Alexander Dunning?

01:04:15

Casual Person

Chosen answer: Intimidation. The implication is that he's going to be spilling Dunning's blood during the interrogation and doesn't want to get his suit dirty.

Question: At the airport, Marvin shoots a bullet through a rocket, and the explosion travels backwards towards the shooter. Is this possible?

Chosen answer: Yes and no. The Mythbusters later tested this, and it turns out that while an armed RPG will explode when shot with a bullet, it definitely won't kill whoever fired it. What's more, RPG's are designed to penetrate tank armor, and when they explode, a stream of molten metal comes out to destroy the armor. That kept going no matter what they did and would likely kill Marvin.

Mistakes

In the very first shot of the movie, a clock is shown ticking. The time on the clock reads 05:59:56. It is obviously AM because a few seconds later at 06:00:00, Frank wakes up as if it was morning. As Frank sits up, clear daylight is visible outside of the window. This scene is supposed to be set during winter. We know this because there are many Christmas decorations. Since this is meant to be winter, it should still be dark at that time of day.
