Corrected entry: At the bank, when Keenu gets shot in the vest you see him take off the vest and clutch his chest. Then as Swayze walks up to him to knock him out he is wearing it again. (01:58:45)
Corrected entry: In a freefall the wind noise is so strong that you cannot hear other people's voices (no matter how loud). The vocal conversation is impossible. Nevertheless, people in the movie have almost no problems taking to each other in a freefall.
Corrected entry: In the scene where Keanu Reeves fights with Anthony Keidis and his friends, his surfboard is broken in half. However, in the early morning surf scene where he is walking down the beach with Lori Petty and realises that he is probably with the ex-presidents, he is carrying the same surfboard.
Corrected entry: When the undercover policeman is supposedly lying dead in the bank, and Harp tells Utah to look at the 'guy who was killed', he moves his head around, really obviously. While dead.
Corrected entry: Utah said at one point that a knee injury had stopped his football career, and we see the knee give out after jumping down into the canal while chasing Bodi. Given the huge amount of physical ability required,I don't think the FBI would have taken on a recruit that had an injury like that.
Corrected entry: Keanu Reeves is in the restaurant where Lori Petty works explaining why he wants to surf. He said he went to law school on a football scholarship (Ohio State). There is no such thing as a football scholarship for law school. He may have gotten a scholarship to OSU for undergrad studies, but the way Keanu says it, it sounds like he got a law school scholarship.
Corrected entry: Just before the raid on the house, Utah radios his sidekick who amazingly enough is able to speak with both his hands off the talk button on the radio and his mouth several feet from the microphone.
Corrected entry: In the scene where Patrick Swayze is chasing Keanu Reeves, Swayze hurls a huge boxer dog at Reeves. If you look closely, you can see that in the split second after Reeves has wrestled it, he literally drop kicks the animal, which has turned into a small cuddly toy. It even makes that squeak that those toys make.
Revealing mistake: During the night surfing scene notice that the sun is evident in the background (look closely it does not appear long). There are also shots where you can see clouds and faint blue sky. Moments later you see Keanu and Lori sitting in the water with completely different lighting which was actually taken at night and further distinguishes that the surfing shots were not actually done at night time. I heard the scene was shot during the day with a filter so it looked like it was shot at night.
Trivia: Johnny is reporting to Angelo on Bhodi's movements that day. He comments on how he goes and eats lunch at "Patrick's Roadhouse." There is an actual bar and grill on the Pacific Coast Highway right out of Los Angeles called 'Patrick's Roadhouse', but Patrick Swayze also starred in "Roadhouse" a few years earlier, so this seems like a deliberate nod.
