Factual error: It is not plausible that the tail rotor blade of the helicopter can destroy large parts of a building without being damaged.

Plot hole: When in the room getting the vault key, Kamarov escapes and is at the helicopter in a matter of minutes. The problem is, the helicopter is on the roof of a different building.

Continuity mistake: In the car chase, the blue van is hit and the left side headlight dislodges and is dangling down for most of the chase. But in one far shot where the van is taking a turn, it is suddenly switched to the right headlight that's dangling.

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.

Continuity mistake: During the opening chase the chase goes along the river from left to right as you look at the screen. They make a turn and now go from right to left as you look at the screen, along the same river.

Revealing mistake: In the opening chase with the armoured truck it comes up behind a blue car that is already dented on the near side, which is the side it slides round to so the truck hits it. It then gets pushed onto a silver van that is completely wrecked from previous takes.

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.

Revealing mistake: When Yuri Komarov is on the phone with his daughter, the screen on the phone is the dial screen rather than the on-going call screen.

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

Audio problem: When John pulls the iron rod out of Jack's abs, he throws it on the floor. It is the size of a large bolt, but the sound it makes is the sound of a large iron pipe. [Fixed on Blu-ray].

Factual error: The nuclear power plant at Chernobyl is located 4 km from the town of Pripyat, which is located in a forested area, and the plant is not visible from the town - in this movie it's clearly in visual range.

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.

Plot hole: When Jack and John are on their knees in the hotel, with their hands zip-tied behind, Jack manages to use a hidden knife to cut his bindings and starts kicking bad guy butt. Jack immediately joins the fray but a careful review shows that at no point did John use his knife to free Jack.

Other mistake: When John and Jack are in the ball room, the chopper circles back and begins shooting through the building at them. It is shooting into the far right window straight forward. John and Jack get up and take off running. As they do, you can see the bullets' line of fire moving with them through the building as the chopper tries to hit them. But it cuts to an outside view and the chopper has not moved or turned yet from that spot, nor are the guns turning. It is visibly still shooting forward at the same spot. The line of fire follows Jack and John some more, but the outside view shows the chopper just then start moving to begin following their movement.

Continuity mistake: When John and Yuri are standing in front of the crane and talking about their children, John's arms go from crossed to by his side, back to crossed a couple times between shots.

Visible crew/equipment: After John stops the blue van and tries to confront Jack, Yuri takes it upon himself to get out. As he opens the door of the van, a camera and some crew equipment is reflected in the door's window for a brief moment.

Factual error: In the ballroom scene, John, and friend hide behind a bar while the bad guys are shooting at them. The bullets would gone right through the bar's bottom cabinet as it's made of wood, which does not offer protection against bullets.

Continuity mistake: During the opening chase we have a long shot of the blue van turning left onto the main road next to the river - the next shot is the armoured truck doing the same, but in close up the road layout is completely different, and yet they are right behind the blue van.

Revealing mistake: When the armoured truck hits the first parked car you can see the smoke appear at the side of the car and a jet of smoke when it flips from the air cannon.

Continuity mistake: In the car chase near the start, the blue and white cars hit bumper to door. When the tank type car hits them they are end to end.

Continuity mistake: Just after John asks Jack if he is "gonna cry a little" before he pulls the bolt out of him, Jack leans his head back. The next shot, Jack's head is down. Throughout this scene, his head keeps changing position between shots. Also noticable right after John says "You shot?"

Revealing mistake: When the armored truck flies through the air and smashes into a concrete pipe that is being hauled by a yellow truck, there is a shot from in front of the yellow truck. You can see there is no driver.

Continuity mistake: Just after John says "Jack! I'm not done talking to ya!" It shows the blue van backing up and turning around. The first shot shows its headlights turned on, but the next shot they are off. It happens again later when the van is spun and pinned to the front of the armoured truck.

00:22:20 - 00:27:20

Continuity mistake: The taxi driver looks back at John and says he doesn't have to pay because he let him sing. The shot from in front shows the steering wheel is clear. But the shot changes to behind John and suddenly the driver's arm is on top of the steering wheel and across it.

00:12:00

Quantom X

Continuity mistake: When we first see John in the shooting range, the other cop brings him news of Jack. John asks if he is in the hospital or morgue. The other guy says "worse". The shot from behind John shows he is looking right at the other guy. But then the shot changes to the other perspective and suddenly John is looking down a little and in a different direction.

00:05:45

Quantom X

Continuity mistake: In the taxi, the driver says the line "I sing all the time". As he is saying this, there is a shot change. The shot from in front shows his right hand is barely visible next to the steering wheel and semi low. But the shot from behind shows his hand higher with thumb sticking up above the steering wheel.

Continuity mistake: As Lucy tells John that it's not his fault, the angle showing her shows John with his mouth open. It cuts to another angle and close up of John and suddenly his mouth is closed.

Continuity mistake: When the bad guy is eating the carrot in the big room, the amount of carrot eaten changes between shots.
