Continuity mistake: When Nicholas Cage is being escorted to fetch the roll of film from his car, there are a few scenes where the accountant is holding a gun to Nicholas's head. When the camera is directed at the accountant, two hands can be seen grasping the gun, but when the camera is facing Mr Cage, initially there are two hands but after the next switchback there only appears to be the one!

Continuity mistake: When Nick Cage picks his daughter up to stop her crying at the beginning of the movie, he rests her head on his right shoulder. But when he turns around to tell his wife that he loves her, her head is now resting on his left shoulder.

Audio problem: Right after Max and Tom watch the two fake snuff films, Max mentions the record company's lack of interest. At one point his lip movements don't seem to match his words.

Question: Can someone please explain what a snuff film actually is? I've heard that they don't exist, and they are just a rumor, but can someone clarify all this?

Chosen answer: A snuff film is a movie where someone is actually killed on film, where the intention is to sell the movie afterwards. There are several other instanses where people are shown murdered on film (news reports, the Zapruder film, dictatorships documenting executions, etc.), but if the purpose of making the movie is not commercial, it is not a geniune "snuff" film. FBI experts and other law agencies state that they have never seen a genuine "snuff", and that it is most likely just a rumor, especially since the concept of someone willingly selling evidence of their own crimes to strangers and remaining undetected for 30 years, is highly unlikely.

Question: How, exactly, does Max die? When Machine rips the tape off his mouth, does he fall forward onto a blade of some type?

Chosen answer: Machine first rips off the tape then slits his throat with a knife he had hidden. If you put the movie in slow play, you will see what I mean.
