Movie Trivia/Goofs

→ View All
  • Screenwriter 'William Broyles Jr' identified in particular with Anthony Swofford's book as a former soldier who also had a son in the armed forces.
  • The original screenplay contained a more pointed political stance which Sam Mendes stripped out.
  • Movie Goof (audio/visual unsynchronized): After Troy is branded, Swofford leans in and tells him, "You earned it, man!" This does not match up to his lip movement.
  • Movie Goof (errors in geography): When Swoff's squad arrives at the "Highway of Death" a road sign in the background reads "Abdali 150 KM, Kazimah 80 KM, Mutlaa 10 KM". There is nowhere in Kuwait where all three of these distances would be accurate: Al-Mutla and Kazimah are only about 10 to 15 kilometres from each other, and Al-Abdali commune is only roughly 70 to 80 kilometres from those two districts and roughly 90 to 100 kilometres from Kuwait City. Most of the carnage on the "Highway of Death" took place along Highway 80, in the area around Mutla which would have put Abdali only 70 to 75 kilometres and Kazimah only 10 to 15 kilometres away.
