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: 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: 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)

Trivia: The only film in the "Die Hard" franchise to specifically be written as an original "Die Hard" script not inspired by outside source materials. "Die Hard" was based on a novel titled "Nothing Lasts Forever." "Die Hard 2" was loosely adapted from another novel entitled "58 minutes." "Die Hard with a Vengeance" was a re-worked version of an earlier script entitled "Simon Says." "Live Free or Die Hard/Die Hard 4.0" was a combination of ideas inspired by a Wired Magazine article ("A Farewell to Arms") and elements from another script entitled "WW3.com." Ironically, despite being the only film in the franchise to be specifically conceived of as a "Die Hard" film, it was the lowest-rated film in the franchise by critics and audience polls.
