Continuity mistake: When Chris Rock and Anthony Hopkins are being chased through the woods, they crash into a tree near the end of the chase. When it shows the front of the Mercedes Benz crashing, the licence plate is torn from the car. Then in the next shot, the plate is simply dented, but still attached to the car.
Continuity mistake: The special phone used by Rock (the Nokia 9210 if it's the European version) is always used the wrong way around. To make a phone call, you must talk and listen to the backside, not as with most other Mobiles, where you talk and listen on the same side as you find the display! And by the way, in each close-up of the phone there was no reception indicated on the screen!
Continuity mistake: In the opening scene the agreed upon price for the bomb is $30 million. $1 million is submitted as down payment in cash. Later on the balance discussed is always $19 million and the transfer shown on the screen is indeed $19,000,000 from Midland BS bank. Where did the missing $10 million go?
Jake Hayes: Does it play DVDs?
Seale: No. It's a portable thermonucular (sic) bomb.
Roland Yates: If it breathes, it dies.
Question: When the Czech bad guy is reading out the numbers to set the nuclear device is he reading out in Greek, not Czech?
