Question: In Thomas Barnes' perspective, near the end of it, he orders the studio guy to rewind the tape and then he says "stop", followed by "oh my god", but when the complete terrorist plan is shown, he instead stays staring at the monitor because he's watching Taylor. Is this a mistake, or are these two separate events? If it is the second one, what did he see in his perspective?
Question: One of the film's posters features a photo of Virgil Tibbs and Chief Gillespie examining Colbert's dead body in the scene of the crime. However, this did not appear in the film. Was a scene like that ever filmed? If it was, where can I see it? If not, why was the picture putten inside the poster anyway? If it was for commercial business, why couldn't they put a scene from the movie?
Question: Plot spoiler. I don't know if this is a plot hole or if it's an error on Söze's part, but wouldn't the story he told the cop pretty much make killing the guy who could identify him irrelevant? Söze wanted him dead because he was the only one willing to identify him. But after the conversation with the police officer the cop would know that Verbal Kint was Kayser Söze. Thus his identity would be out in the open (lots of people seemed to know who Verbal Kint was after all). Did Söze just not think the cop would figure it out, is it a plot hole, or am I missing something?
Question: I know someone else asked something like this, but how did deer get there? I've never seen a zoo with any and New York City is on an island.
Question: A question of the Omega 13. When Brandon (the geeky kid) is describing the device, he says something along the lines of its a "matter re-arranger, effecting a 13 second time jump to the past." I'm not sure if I interpreted this correctly, but does this mean that the Omega 13 doesn't actually rewind time, but just re-arranges particles to their positions 13 seconds ago, or does it do conventional time travel?
Question: This is perhaps a silly question, but do any Special Forces unit in the world have a uniform like the Russians did in this film (specifically those who tried to storm 47's hotel room near the beginning)? I'm assuming it was designed for the sake of the movie (red eyes, etc) rather than real world accuracy, but I'm interested all the same.
Question: In Book 6, Dumbledore mentions that the Defence Against the Dark Arts Job is cursed, and that no one has had it for more than a year since he refused it to Voldemort. But in Movie/Book 1, it seems that Quirell has been at the school for a while (Hagrid knows him, and knows that he's the DADA teacher; all the older students seem to know him and there is no mention that this is Quirells first year of teaching).
