Law Abiding Citizen

Character mistake: In the court scene Clyde mentions a case, Day v McDonough docket number 04-1325. This is a real case, but the docket number is 04-1324.

Plot hole: Inmediately after Jamie Foxx finds the bomb in the city hall, and he says, "We don't tell the mayor anything", we see Gerard Butler arriving to his property next to the prison, and finally he enters his jail cell. So, in the time between Gerard Butler's arrival to the property and his entrance to the jail cell, Jamie Foxx thought about a plan, picked up the bomb, passed through the traffic and security checkpoints, talked to the warden to get access to the prison, entered solitary, handcuffed the bomb, and still had time to wait for Gerard Butler's arrival.

Factual error: When Clyde is first arrested, he is taken to a prison and put in with the general prison population. People are taken to jail before going to prison. Only after you're convicted do you go to prison. In fact, he wasn't even charged with a crime when taken there.

Question: Why was the DNA inadmissible?

Question: What was the whole thing about Clyde's house being broken into? Was it just a home invasion or something to do with his CIA past?

Question: When Clyde is about to die from the bomb, why didn't he just end the call on the phone he was calling from? He could have probably cancelled the detonation.

Chosen answer: Unfortunately, that wouldn't have done it. Once the phone on the bomb recieved the signal there was no going back.
