Continuity mistake: When Cutter takes out the first terrorist in the bathroom, you can see the toilet seat is down (and the lid is up). When Cutter pushes him through the bathroom door, the seat and lid are both up. The seat is back down when the terrorist's head is dunked.


Revealing mistake: When Rane jumps out of the hospital window and crashes through the umbrella, table, and people, you can see him land on an air mattress. Even though it's camouflaged to match the ground, you see it deflate under his weight.


Continuity mistake: As Cutter rides away on the motorcycle, a wide shot of the plane shows the doors are closed and the release of passengers has finished. However, when the FBI arrives a minute later, passengers are again being released from the plane. (00:50:00 - 00:51:10)


Continuity mistake: When the plane was getting ready to land at the small airfield, it passes over a small fair. When u see the police look up at the plane, its passing over a 2 wheel Ferris wheel while its moving. In the very next scene, the Ferris wheel is sitting still. It couldn't possibly stop that fast.

Upvote valid corrections to help move entries into the corrections section.

Suggested correction: The ferris wheel slows then stops, and the seats can be seen rocking back and forth from the momentum, exactly as they should. Ferris wheels do stop pretty quickly, especially when riders are getting on and off.

Continuity mistake: When Cutter enters the club for the luncheon meeting, you see him pull his hand out of his pocket, but in the next shot of him, his hand is back in his pocket.


Plot hole: When the police and FBI arrest Rane at the fairgrounds, Cutter tells them Vincent (one of Rane's men) is also at the fair, and wearing a tan jacket. Cutter did not see Vincent leave the plane and never saw him at the fair, and when he last saw him on the plane he was not wearing this jacket. So how could he know Vincent was at the fair and wearing a tan jacket?


Plot hole: The airport at which the plane lands is only supposed to have a small airfield. Yet near the end we see the huge plane roaring down the runway for more than a minute, which would be impossible on a small airfield.


Continuity mistake: When Cutter fights the hijacker near the bathroom door and puts a gun to his head, there is a shot of Rane and Liz Hurley arriving on the scene and behind them is the hijacker who wears glasses. But this hijacker does not appear in the following sequence, even though he was right there a second earlier.


Plot hole: Liz Hurley, who is one of the hijackers, learns that Cutter is an undercover security agent. Yet for some reason she fails to pass this on to any of the other hijackers. When they take over none of them appear to have any knowledge of Cutter.


Continuity mistake: After Rane escapes from the hospital he pushes a bearded man in a brown suit away. In the immediate wide angle the man has vanished.

Continuity mistake: When the plane takes off and Cutter is holding onto the landing gear, the sky swaps from daytime to pitch dark in a millisecond.

Continuity mistake: After the FBI agents who escort Rane up the boarding stairs are shot, Rane runs up the remaining stairs and past Mr Forget. 2-3 seconds later there is a wider shot of the plane which again shows Rane running up the stairs and past Mr Forget. (01:04:35)


Visible crew/equipment: When Briggs hands Cutter his gun while they are chasing the plane in a patrol car, the camera and crew are reflected in Briggs' glasses.


Plot hole: When Cutter is already up with the pilots, and Rane hears the elevator come up and grabs the stewardess, he tells her to open the door. How could the elevator come up without someone pushing the button, as the terrorist was dead?


Continuity mistake: When Cutter is in the bathroom with the phone, he opens the door slightly to check the situation. When he closes the door, the nearest terrorist standing about 10-15 metres away, hears the door shut and begins to approach the bathroom to investigate. Cutter opens the door again some 20 seconds later and the terrorist is still approaching. It should not have taken the terrorist this long to walk such a short distance.


Plot hole: While Cutter is in the bathroom, the first thing he hears of the terrorists taking over the plane, is one of them yelling "sit down". If he heard that, how could he have not heard the gun shots when Ms. Ritchie shot the FBI agents, or the sounds of screaming passengers?


John Cutter: Plan not working out the way you wanted? Asshole?
Charles Rane: Don't flatter yourself Cutter. You prevented nothing. Although it seems I may have underestimated you.
