Snowden

Continuity mistake: At the beginning, inside the hotel room in Hong Kong. Before Snowden puts the two cellphones belonging to his guests in the microwave, there are already two different cellphones lying in there. After the point of view switches to the microwave's turntable, the two original cellphones have magically disappeared. (00:02:55)

Continuity mistake: When Corbin writes FISA on the board, the text changes between shots, note the circle surrounding it.

Factual error: There would be no room for a thumb drive inside of a real Rubik's Cube due to the way they are constructed. When dismantled, the individual moving parts are quite small. It would certainly be possible to construct a facsimile of a Rubik's Cube that would have enough room, but it wouldn't be a fully functional puzzle the way it was in the film.

Corbin O'Brian: With foreign site intel transfer. Transfers happen on collection now. They go straight to the Pentagon, Mossad if they need it.

Edward Snowden: You didn't tell me we were running a dragnet on the whole world, Corbin.

Corbin O'Brian: Bombs won't stop terrorism, brains will, and we don't have nearly enough of those. I'm gonna give you a shot, Snowden.

More quotes from Snowden


Question: When Edward Snowden obtains the MicroSD card after downloading all the data, he and Patrick Haynes (who's fully aware what he's up to) start communicating via sign language before he leaves to avoid their conversation being recorded. Does anyone know what they are saying to each other?

Chosen answer: The scene is captioned as follows - Snowden: "I might not see you again." Haynes: "You 'gonna leave me here...with Captain America? Thanks a lot." Snowden: "NASA may come after you." Haynes: "I don't know what you're talking about. [walks away.]" I should note that my profession is that of an American Sign Language interpreter. From my observation, they are signing pretty much correctly, if not artfully. The only difference is that what the movie translates as "I don't know what you're talking about" would probably be more accurately stated as, "I don't understand your comment." And there really isn't a sign used for "gonna'." Hayes just says, "you're leaving me here with him?Captain America!"
