- In the beginning of the movie a big truck
is driven into the garage and a few bad guys
jumps out, the truck is then empty. Though
in the end of the movie just before they plan
to escape they drive an ambulance van out
of the truck, where did they hide it?
- In the end when all bond papers fall from
the the sky both sides are blank hrrrmmm smart
thieves to rob blank A4 sheets of paper. -
- It is impossible to talk and listen on a
CB radio at the same time.
- The terrorists shoot the same glass twice
by Gruber's command.
- Is it just me, or do you notice that the
terrorists constantly switch languages on
a whim from German to English and back again.
Sometimes in the same sentence! These bad
guys are obviously not from Europe and are
probably foreign language flunkies! - movieguy
- After Gruber shoots Takagi and splatters
his brains all over the insides of the dooors,
McClaine freaks and makes a noise and the
terrorists come running through the doors.
What's wrong about this is the terrorist who
opens the door doesn't get any blood on his
hands. - Igore
- When McClain is sitting on the top of the
elevator listening to Hans read "ho-ho-ho"
Karl comes down in another elevator which
sends John's up. Why? And anyway, it already
showed that all the elevators with the exception
of the service elevator were locked off. Then
why are two operating? - Igore
- On the film description on the back of the
official release DVD it claims McClane is
"armed only with a service revolver"
McClane only carries a Berretta 92 Pistol.
This is a magazine loading weapon and isn't
(in my eyes) considered a revolver. (UK Special
Release DVD) - sas82
- When the FBI agents have taken over the
operation, they find themselves in a helicopter
chasing to the scene. The good cop, from ground
level, looks up and sees them yet the scenes
of the chopper coming to the rescue after
that spotting cover several miles of airspace
over several minutes - no way would anybody
at the tower be able to see those choppers.
Also, the Police RV takes way too much time
to arrive at the scene from the first time
the bad boys notice its arrival. - saint
- At the part where John McClane kills the
guy with the glasses and sends him down the
elevator with the Santa Claus hat and wrote
on his shirt "now I have a machine gun
Ho-Ho-Ho" as Hans moves the dead guys
head over to the left look at the right side
of his head you can see his eye blink. (VHS)
- At the beginning, when McClain first enters
the Nakatomi building, he uses the touch screen
to find his wives office. When he selects
her name "Gennero" it becomes highlighted
and the spelling changes to "Gennaro"!
- The eyes of the dead terrorist in the elevator
close just before Gruber touches his face.
- Comment: It
was mentioned earlier that when Hans reaches
for the first murdered terrorist in the
elevator, his eyes close. Actually, his
whole head moves about 1 inch as Hans
reaches out to him. - freddyg
- I just noticed this today, and am surprised
no one noticed it before. When McClane is
on the airplane at the beginning a guy notices
his gun, but how does McClane have a gun on
an airplane? - David
McClane could legally have a gun on the
plane because he's an officer of law enforcement.
Even if McClane was an officer of
law, he still would not be aloud to
take a gun on an airplane (he could
be a terrorists posing as a police
officer). - David
Cops could carry their guns on
planes, with certification (airport
security calling the police department
and making sure he's really a
cop, etc.) and filling out a lot
of paperwork. For all we know,
McClane could've done this. -
The FAA regulations were different
back then. In 1988 A peace officer
could legally carry a firearm
as carry-on if the proper credentials/ID
were supplied. The big terrorism
factor wasn't considered until
Sept. 11. Air Marshals can still
carry guns however. - Tube-Man
- In the beginning John's tanktop is nice
clean white. But about half way in the movie
it gets dirty and turns brown, but theres
never a scence were they show it getting dirty.
(Yes there was a scene they shot and never
was shown where showed John coming out of
the vent and dirt falling, but the scene was
never put in the movie, so it is a blooper).
- Comment: Common
sense would indicate that one would probably
get dirty while crawling around in a vent
like that. - OKSAN
