Continuity mistake: At the end of the movie when Michael chases the delivery truck in a red Ford Contour, he crashes into a bus and the car spins several times. If you watch closely you can see that after the crash the left headlight is very badly damaged and the right one is missing, but the next scene shows the car almost undamaged.
Continuity mistake: In the scene where Tim Robbins is helping the kid of Jeff Bridges with his baseball practice, he is talking to Jeff outside of the practice area. He swings a little with a bat and then leave the bat resting on his left shoulder, then the shot is from a different angle and the bat is resting on his right shoulder.
Continuity mistake: One for car freaks : In the car pursuit towards the end of the film, two different model years of the same car (Ford Contour) are used. After taking a turn in the '97 version, the next one is taken in the quite differently styled '98 model.
Oliver Lang: I'm a messenger Michael, I'm a messenger! There's millions of us, waiting to take up arms, ready to spread the word... millions of us.
Michael Faraday: No! The government's not who you're killing.
Oliver Lang: Yes. Yes... they'll pay. They'll pay for their sins. Their lies.
Michael Faraday: You're killing children! Children die.
Oliver Lang: Children... I know that. This is war, Michael. In a war, children die.
Michael Faraday: You can't ask government to be infallible, but you can ask it to be accountable.
Oliver Lang: I can ask it to be honest.
Michael Faraday: You know, when Leah died, all I wanted was someone to tell me, "We made a mistake." You know?"We made a mistake. Your wife suffered for it, and we'd take it back a hundred times if we could." But they don't say that. She would've.
