A Good Day to Die Hard

Corrected entry: Both Pripyat and Chernobyl are located within a zone with very tight military security. You pass two rings of fences and control posts when entering the area. John and Jack would not be able just to drive into the area.

Correction: The bad guys, with all their trucks and vans and bulldozers, would have encountered the tight circle of security measures and destroyed them; the bad guys paved the way for John and Jack.


Corrected entry: In the courtroom scene, the room is packed with people. The bombs in the three cars blow the entire wall out, but seconds later when entering, the room is completely empty. There are two guards on the floor, but all of the spectators in the courtroom escaped miraculously. (00:14:00 - 00:17:00)

Correction: If you look closely, you can see more bodies under the rubble in the courtroom, the amount of time between the bombing and Chagarin's men entering the courtroom makes it very probable that those who weren't injured/killed had already escaped.

Corrected entry: John chases down the chopper as Jack goes after Yuri. John is seen climbing into the chopper but struggling, and you can see the chopper lift into the air well away from the tiled concrete ground it was on. It cuts to Jack running up some stairs, then back to John but showing a view of him climbing in the chopper from inside the chopper. It is a down angle, and you can see the concrete floor is now only a few feet below him, where it was much further from it two shots before. (01:22:15)

Correction: Pay attention to the width of one concrete slab when the helicopter is on the ground (a scene before John runs outside). If we take an estimate that the slab is at least 15ft (approx 5m) wide and 30ft (10m) long. The helicopter cabin is nowhere near as wide as the slab. You can easily see at least 3 slab (widths) from inside the cabin looking out. Indicating that helicopter is fairly high up.


Corrected entry: It seems as if John and Jack drive from Moscow to Pripyat during one night/evening. The distance is almost 1000 km and it would take at least 12 hours to drive. (00:38:20)

Correction: Speed limit on major highways in Russia is 110 kmh and in Ukraine is up to 130 kmh. A 960 kilometer trip could easily be made in about 8 hours, even keeping close to the speed limit. Odds are they weren't following the speed limits too closely. Nights in that region are dark for 12 to 14 hours at that time of year. Besides which, it "seems" like they drove it in one night, but there is nothing to confirm they drove it in one night.


Corrected entry: When Jack is trying to break into the car he is breaking into a Maserati Quattroporte. They finally break in and find the stock of weapons but in the next scene the car they are driving is a Maybach 62/64.


Correction: The car they end up stealing isn't the same one they find the weapons in.


Corrected entry: After John breaks the window with his body falling from the chopper, he has no injuries, wounds or a broken bone.

Correction: We don't know if he has gained any more injuries or wounds as he is already covered in blood. So it's possible he has gained a few more.
