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. (00:23:00)

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)

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)

Question: Is John McClane ambidextrous? I noticed in several scenes, he'd alternate between using and holding his gun with his right and left hand.

Chosen answer: No. Bruce Willis (and thus, John McClane) is left handed. But guns are mostly designed for right handed people, so when he isn't holding a gun modified for him, it's easier to use it with his right hand.
