Movie Trivia/Goofs

→ View All
  • Movie Goof (crew or equipment visible): When Capt. Walden's helicopter is circling the Iraqi tank and attempting to neutralize it, there is a quick split second where the tank is in the foreground and the helicopter behind it. At that exact moment, you can clearly see a man with dark brown hair in a blue shirt and khaki pants on or near the tank.
  • Movie Goof (continuity error): In the tank combat sequence, Serling asks, "Do you or do you not have a fucking target?" When a recording of this is later played, the expletive is missing.
  • Movie Goof (audio/visual unsynchronized): During one of the scenes of firefight, you can hear Captain Walden say, "Gimme the goddamn M16," but you can see that her mouth does not say "M16."
  • When Denzel Washington was first approached with the script, his immediate thought was to contact Edward Zwick to direct. Washington had worked with Zwick on Glory to Oscar-winning effect.
