Prisoners

Revealing mistake: Towards the end, Jake Gyllenhaal is browsing the internet on a computer running Windows 7...despite the "no network" notification icon at the bottom right of the taskbar. (02:33:00)

Factual error: In the scene where Hugh Jackman leaves the apartment where he is holding Alex and walks to a store to buy a bottle of liquor the liquor store has signs for beer in the window. The entire movie takes place in Pennsylvania and, which only has state owned liquor stores that do not advertise or sell beer.

Continuity mistake: In the shot where Holly is done injecting Anna with the syringe and stands up to shoot at Detective Loki, the syringe and two "medicine/poison" bottles are all close together next to Anna's hair. Next three shots showing the room far out with Holly getting shot and killed has the two bottles next to the edge of the rug and very far from Anna's hair, as well as the syringe which is slightly closer, but far away. The next shot of Loki picking up Anna has the syringe and bottles in their original position next to Anna's hair.


Keller Dover: Someone has to make him talk or they're gonna die.

Detective Loki: Just let me do my job.

Captain Richard O'Malley: You think this is gonna lead you to the bodies? Cause I sure as shit don't.
Detective Loki: Do me a favor, captain. Go fuck yourself.

Question: What motivated Bob Taylor (an earlier abductee of the same perpetrators) to implicate himself in the current abductions by stealing the girls' clothing items and taking them to his home?

BF

Chosen answer: Because he was once abducted by the same kidnappers when he was a child, and it has damaged him emotionally. He is recreating the abductions, playing the part of a kidnapper, and be keeps the clothes as a memento of his past experience.

Question: Why did Bob have the snakes? Is it linked to the snakes that scared Alex as a child or is it just a coincidence? If they are supposed to protect the evidence in the crates, they wouldn't be in plain sight.

Chosen answer: In the film it is just a coincidence. However, the snakes tie into the rest of the religious and mythological imagery present in the film.
