PostPosted: Wed May 15, 2002 4:17 am    Post subject: Movie Mistakes Reply with quote

Here are some of the mistakes that were made in this movie (I got them from a website and I didnt spot most of these)

*Just after they have loaded up the truck with the gold, Amir's wife is shot. When he runs over to meet his daughter at her mother's side he puts his arms around her, but in the next shot his hands are behind the little girl. There was no time for him to move them.

*At times in the movie we see George Clooney handle solid bars of gold as if they were made of balsa wood, or chocolate. Gold is one of the heaviest metals, and bars the size of those depicted in the movie would weigh about 75 pounds.

*It is said in the film that Ice Cube's character works in an airport in Detroit. When the scene shows Ice Cube at work as a baggage handler, there are mountains in the background. There are no mountains in the Detroit area.

*The stolen cars from Kuwait have Saudi Arabian registration plates instead of Kuwaiti ones.

*When the milk truck tips over, look at the wheels on the trailer - they're cocked to the left so it can slide without flipping.

*When the soldiers are leaving the village the 1st time a man runs after the truck screaming to take him with and jumps on the truck. You can see others close to him. However, when the camera angle gives a long shot of the truck and village you can see there is no-one near the truck.

*Right after Troy and Chief try and pick up the luggage full of gold and it falls to the floor, Chief (Ice Cube) grabs what looks like a leather duffel bag and says something like, "these bags will hold about 65 pounds each." But in a previous post, someone said each of those gold bars would weigh about 75 lbs. So that means one bag, one bar....

*In one scene, some of Saddam's troops pour oil all over Mark Whalberg's face (while forcing him to bite down on a CD so it runs into his mouth) in an attempt to torture him. The next scene, when he is rescued, he has nothing but the requisite smudges and "movie dirt" on his face. Apparantly the Iraqi's decided to clean the oil slick off of his face before he got rescued.

*When the soldiers are leaving the village the 1st time a man runs after the truck screaming to take him with and jumps on the truck. Troy pushing him off wearing sunglasses in the next shot he has no glasses visible.

*In the beginning of the movie we see the dark-haired reporter questioning a soilder. When George Clooney walks up to her she clearly says "He don't know sh*t" twice. However even though her head is turned slighty the second time she says it, we do notice that her jaw is not even moving.

*When the castle is being attacked, Ice Cube dives away from an explosion. If you watch it in slow motion, you can see it's his stunt double.

*Many people through the film are speaking Arabic and they are mostly Iraqi, but they are speaking dialects similar to Syrians & Lebanese.

one of the good things about having little mistakes is that everytime you watch the movie, if you pay attention, you get to see something a little different.
