Corrected entry: CLU's plan was to lure Sam into the Grid to A) Open the portal to the outside world and B) Lure Kevin Flynn from hiding. So how is it that CLU wasn't aware that Sam had arrived until Rinzler hurt him and discovered that he was a User? The moment Sam came to the Grid, the portal would have activated, which would have been a sure sign of his arrival. And considering that the only place that Sam could arrive was at the Flynn's Arcade within the Grid, shouldn't CLU have set up guards to wait for Sam's arrival and capture him immediately?Teru_Kage
Corrected entry: If CLU's plan was to lure Sam into the Grid to draw out Kevin, then why did he try to kill Sam in the light cycle arena? Sam would have been much more valuable to him alive. Even worse, Sam was almost killed by Rinzler because nobody knew at the time that Sam was a User. Shouldn't CLU have been monitoring the portal for Sam's entry? If CLU's plan was merely to get Sam to open the portal, and the movie stated that the portal could only remain open for a limited time, then wouldn't it have been better to obtain Kevin's disc first?Teru_Kage
Corrected entry: The Programs on the Grid have developed all sorts of new weaponry such as swords and fighting staffs, so why do they still use the Identity Disc as a throwing weapon? Loss of the disc results in "immediate de-resolution", so it makes no sense the Programs would want to toss them around.Teru_Kage
Corrected entry: When Sam is fighting Rinzler, gravity inside the arena is reversed causing them to fall towards the ceiling. Rinzler attempts to jump towards Sam and Sam smashes the floor beneath him to trick Rinzler like he did to Lizor. Thing is, the glass falls properly towards the ground rather than being affected by reverse gravity.
Corrected entry: During the scenes when Sam and Flynn are walking round the "battleship", you can see that Flynn has a disk on his back by the ring of light, despite losing it in the end of the line club.
Corrected entry: In the final disc wars battle Sam slides, blocks his opponent's disc (which flies off) and then throws his own disc, killing the other guy. Afterwards you see Sam's disc bouncing off the wall, up, and out of frame. As Sam slides by the camera and drops through the floor, he is still wearing his disc on his back. Effectively Sam isn't supposed to have a disc for the rest of the film, and yet he does.
Corrected entry: At the fight at "the end of the line bar" when Kevin Flynn enters, we see over twenty rebels killing guards scene by scene. The fight is almost won but Kevin Flynn escapes with Sam and Quorra and then a guard steals his disc. Although there were over twenty rebels in the bar and only this guard, none of the rebels who worship Kevin Flynn try to retake his disc from the guard or Castor/Zuse. Actually you can see that all the rebels are getting out of the scene in a hurry when the guard shoots his rope. The bar is completely empty when Castor/Zuse is performing some lovely dance moves.
Corrected entry: In the very end of the movie as Sam is about to walk out of Flynn's Arcade, he walks towards the door which is visibly bright. After he opens the doors the light come into the arcade. But after he is outside the sky is still dark. Then he takes Quorra to watch the sun rise.Jakeman24
Corrected entry: After sending his father to take a ship for escape Sam goes to retake his fathers disc,a door opens and two guards get out to see what is happening,Sam jumps behind them, kicks one to the cliff and trips the other.From the shot from the top it can be seen that second guard actually falls to platform but then rolls himself to cliff.
Corrected entry: Sam interfaces with a computer using his Nokia N8 tilted sideways and plugging on the left. The left side of the N8 (if tilted sideways) is the video out - a non-input terminal. There's no logical way the hardware would have allowed him to interface with other devices using that port! The actual input for the device is at the bottom (if tilted sideways).
Corrected entry: After reading Sam's disc, Clu tosses it to Rinzler who catches it in his left hand. In the next shot, Rinzler is not holding anything. When Rinzler and Sam turn around, suddenly the disc in is Rinzler's right hand.
Corrected entry: During the light cycle battle, there are five participants on each side (four white plus Sam, four red plus CLU). By the end of the battle, all five of the white bikes have been wrecked, but only four of the red, including CLU's yellow cycle, were wrecked. This leaves one additional program that should still be on the grid tooling around on his cycle.k4tonic
Corrected entry: Sam acquires a second Light Cycle rod during the cycle fight. It's the one he was going to hand off to his teammate when Clu derezzes the guy. Sam sticks it on his right leg. Then Clu destroys his bike and Quorra rescues him and takes him to Flynn's hideout. The rod can be seen attached to Sam's leg in the elevator ride up to the main room of the hideout. However, it's gone in the wide shot of Sam and Quorra arriving at the top floor. It's seen again in the shot of Sam from behind, but after that it is never seen again despite being a more logical choice for transport back to the city than Flynn's older Light Cycle.
Corrected entry: Clu has sent Alan a message via the pager that is lying around somewhere in Flynn's - but due to Kevin's statement the programs can not know wireless communication and for a fact a pager battery doesn't hold that long.
Corrected entry: When Sam enters the arcade, his hoodie is white. After he is transported inside the computer, when he runs out of the "digital" arcade, his hoodie is black.
Corrected entry: After Flynn Sr.'s identity disc is stolen off his back AND then shown in Clu's transport (he has not stolen it back yet), we get a scene lasting several minutes between Flynn Sr., his son, and Quorra, where Flynn Sr. is standing with his back to the camera and his disc - which is supposed to be gone - is still there. When Quorra's disc is off, it is missing, and we do not hear anything about Flynn Sr. being able to spawn a new disc.
