Die Hard: With a Vengeance

Factual error: When McClane and Zeus take the little hatchback from the bank location, they run up the ramp by the Brooklyn Bridge and McClane looks to see the dump trucks aren't on the bridge. Zeus then spots them on FDR Drive and they speed off down the ramp to FDR Drive. The ramp they were on doesn't connect to the ramp they took to give chase. It only heads towards City Hall then over the bridge. They'd have to cross the bridge, do a u-turn in Brooklyn then come back across to Manhattan.

Visible crew/equipment: There is a shot towards the end of the film, (just before Willis and Jackson exchange dialogue in the engine room) in which it shows the entourage of people boarding a smaller boat from the much larger ship. Look towards the bottom left corner of the screen as the boat pulls away - inside you can see the head of a female boom mike operator.

Factual error: When the collected bad guys are at the "North of the Border" truck stop, a subtitled henchman tells Jeremy Irons that the helicopter will be ready in ten minutes. But the confused fellow actually says, "...in zwanzig minuten," which means TWENTY minutes!

Trivia: Someone asked: Has anyone EVER figured out the math to that damn water-in-a-bottle-diffuse-the-bomb riddle? I actually have, in case anyone's wondering about it. If I remember right, they've got a 5, a 3, and they need 4. Fill the five, tip it into the 3, leaving 2. Empty out the three, and put the 2 in it. Then fill the five, and use that jug to fill up the remainder of the 3, which will leave 4 in the 5 gallon jug. Another possible way to do this: You fill up the 3 and tip these three gallons into the 5. Then you fill up the 3 and use this to fill up the 5. This leaves you with one in the 3 and five in the 5. Then you empty the 5 and tip the one from the 3 over, then fill up the 3. Then you've got three in the 3 and one in the 5. After you've tipped over the three this will leave you with four in the 5.

Trivia: When John is asked what he has done during his suspension from the police force he says "smoking cigarettes and watching Captain Kangaroo". This is a line he sings from the radio in Pulp Fiction just before he ran over Wallace. Appropriate, since Pulp Fiction falls neatly between Die Hard 2 and 3.

Trivia: In the very beginning of the movie you see a big DKNY board with some people walking on a street, exactly the same scene is used in the movie Lake Placid, it's the same people at the same spot.

More quotes from Die Hard: With a Vengeance


Question: I always wondered this. As a cop McClane knew about weapons. While handing over the machine gun to Zeus, he explained how it worked. But he did not told Zeus to switch the safety catch off. How in earth could McClane forget to tell something crucial like that? Zeus isn't even pissed about it later on, while it could have cost him his life.

Shibito

Chosen answer: A simple omission, in the heat of the moment he forgot to mention it. He may have thought, since he just took the gun off an enemy, that the safety was already off.

Question: In the bank, inside the lift, when John McClane is with the fake Detective Otto, what does he see in Detective Otto's badge that convinces him he is fake ?

rorschach2992

Chosen answer: He sees the reflection of his friend's badge number that he remembered from their conversation about the lottery earlier, so knows the badge was taken from his dead friend.

Captain Defenestrator

Question: I always partially catch this movie on TV. There's one thing I've never figured out. Near the end of the movie, Bruce Willis and Samuel L. Jackson are trapped on top of the bomb on the ship, and Willis gets free but Jackson drops the lock pick. Exactly how does he break Jackson out of the handcuffs? It always seems as if there's some sort of electrical jolt involved, but I just can't figure out how that's supposed to open the cuffs.

Chosen answer: Bruce Willis use a couple of drops of the explosive residue and blows the handcuffs apart. Watch it again and see how he stabs the container.
