Question: How much did Mini Cooper give to the Italian Job for the publicity in the movie? The movie casts a very good light on the car.
Question: Is there a reason why John McClane's previous exploits aren't mentioned in this film? He is known, and mentioned for his association with, Nakatomi in DH2 and for Dulles airport and Nakatomi in DH3 but in this one, none of his past "adventures" are mentioned bar a couple of subtle almost hidden quotes (eg. the agent Johnson scene). Is this due to any kind of copyright thing or ownership issues between the films or just that they weren't mentioned by any characters? Just seems strange to me that the previous exploits aren't talked about even a little bit.The_Iceman
Question: Would Bryan just have left the country with Kim (possibly using his CIA connections)? He had torn up Paris in the space of 2 and a half days and killed countless people. He may have gotten away with that when employed on CIA business but in the movie, he's basically just breaking the law. Seems if he took Kim to hospital, questions would be asked and he would be arrested (not to mention shooting Jean-Claude's wife and assaulting him). Yet Kim looks cleaned up, etc.The_Iceman
Question: When Carter goes to pick up Lee at the airport he is parked next to the terminal. I know this movie is pre-9/11 but is it actually possible or a non-airport employee to drive so close to the runway? Even allowing for the fact Carter is a cop, it still seems strange. But I'm no expert in airport protocol so I'm not listing as a mistake as it may well be possible.
Question: When NASA turns on the personnel locators during the fire on the Russian Space Station, how is it they have one for Lev?
Question: Why is it Lev has his own life support system (space suit)? Did they have extras on the shuttle? Or was he wearing one of the pilot's suits (when they locked themselves in the cargo bay before crashing)?
