End of Days

Factual error: The priest says that St. John saw the number 666 in his vision, but it was actually 999 inverted. I'm not sure, but I don't believe St. John read modern Arabic numerals like we do. Didn't he read Roman numerals? I think if St. John saw the number 666, it would actually be DCLXVI. (01:05:40)

End of Days mistake picture

Continuity mistake: After the priest writes down 666 on a piece of paper, he holds it upside down to reveal that it is 999. When we cut back to him a few seconds later, the numbers look completely different. (01:05:40)

Continuity mistake: In the scene were Arnold disconnects the carriages of the train, near the end, he has to jump across the gap. When we first see the gap it is a certain distance, the camera angle changes and it's a bigger gap, then the angle changes and it's closer, there is no way Arnold could have jumped that big gap.

Trivia: The scene where Arnie is loading up at Stinger's HQ with all the weapons is very reminiscent of a similar scene in another Arnie movie, "Commando", with the pulling of buckles and tightening of belts etc.

Trivia: At one stage, Satan walks past an ice rink in New York City. Over loudspeakers, we hear the song, 'Tidings of Comfort and Joy'. Satan smiles, then walks away, before the words, "Christ our saviour" can be heard.

Cardinal: We're not afraid to die for our cause.
Jericho Cane: Good, because I'm not afraid to kill you.

Father Kovak: You think you've seen everything? There's a whole world you've never dreamed of. Thomas saw it, and it destroyed him.
Jericho Cane: I've seen a lot, but nothing would ever make me cut out my tongue.
Father Kovak: Wait a few days.

Satan: How do you expect to defeat me when you are but a man, and I am forever?

More quotes from End of Days

Question: Why does Satan go through the trouble of hiring protective detail at the beginning of the film? Bullets have no effect on him, and even if he was hit, he could just make the claim that the shooter missed. And it's not like he's overly worried about people discovering his true identity, since he blackmails and corrupts people throughout the movie.

Chosen answer: Satan had to protect the host's body from harm by the Catholic priests who might try to stop him with holy "weapons." At the end, when Jericho impales himself on Michael's sword, Satan is cast out of Jericho's body because of the holy power of the sword.

Question: Why wasn't Christine ever told by the devil worshipers who raised her that she was the devil's wife?

Ashley Rose-Anna Perez

Answer: She wasn't exactly fond of the fact when she learned the truth. Telling her before then could ruin Satan's plan, i.e. the revelation could cause her to commit suicide years before the ordained time or she could flee to where they may never find her.

Question: How was Thomas Aquianes able to track down Christine in New York city? He was never told where she was born and for all he knew, she could've been born anywhere?

Ashley Rose-Anna Perez

Answer: The Vatican is aware of the birth, somewhere in the world, of Christine (though not knowing her identity at the time), and the Satanists are present at her birth and know that she is "the one." It's safe to assume that the Vatican, and the Catholic Church in general, has spies/informants in the Satanists' society, and were able, in the intervening 20 years between Christine's birth and the events of the film, to track her down to New York and send Aquinas there (the fact that he was sent by the Vatican is established).
