Factual error: When Yuri's daughter is getting away from the hotel tower, she has to walk to the next building located in front of the tower's window to take the chopper. It should take several minutes, but she does it in a few seconds. (00:48:25)
Continuity mistake: When we first see John, he is in the police shooting range. He has on protective head phones which he takes off and sets on the table in front of him as the other cop comes in. He and this cop talk about Jack, and when they finish, they shake hands. The mid range shot of them shaking hands shows the head phones still on the table. It then cuts to a far shot and now the head phones are gone while the two finish the hand shake. Careful which table you are looking at, as the angle makes it confusing. The head phones were on the table with the red thing on its left side. (00:06:50)Quantom X
Audio problem: In the scene in the banquet hall, where the bad-guy is eating a carrot, he throws it on the floor. Subsequently, while chewing on the little bits he has left in his mouth, there comes a sound which is not a chewing-small-pieces-of-carrot sound, but a biting-a-piece-off-a-carrot sound. That sound was way too loud to have been produced by some little piece he had left in his mouth. (00:47:45)Jacob La Cour
Plot hole: When John has Yuri pinned to the uranium boxes, Yuri reaches into his coat and turns on his walkie talkie so his daughter and minions can hear. John McClane doesn't notice and he is right there. There are two things wrong with this. We hear the beep the radio makes when it is turned on, and it was loud enough that John and Jack would have easily noticed. But even if they didn't hear it, there is another issue. John is a New York cop, or even a detective. As such, he would have extensive training for dealing with armed men, and he would have noticed Yuri reaching into his coat. Even if he didn't hear the radio beep, he would have stopped Yuri's hand or done something, assuming Yuri was reaching for a gun. (01:18:15)Quantom X
