Movie Trivia/Goofs

  • The scene where Tom Cruise "peels off his face" to reveal Dougray Scott was achieved in one shot by shooting both actors against a green screen. Cruise, not wearing a mask, was simply told to place his hand in a pre-arranged position under his chin then pull his hand across his face. Scott wore a plain mask with sensors that could provide a computer with a three-dimensional view of his face. He then peeled off this mask to finish the scene. Cruise's face was superimposed on the mask as it is pulled away and the two images morphed together in the computer; the background of the 747 cabin was added in to replace the green screen. (Watch the scene with frame advance and you will see a slight transitional 'swirl' on the mask halfway through the scene). Kevin Yagher contributed some more traditional latex mask effects for other face-peeling scenes.
  • Movie Goof (continuity error): After the alarm goes off in the Biocyte building when Ethan detonates the bomb, the real guards who respond to the alarm are shown to be carrying submachine guns. However, when they start a firefight with Ambrose's men, they only firing pistols.
  • Anthony Hopkins' character becomes the first person in any Mission Impossible episode or movie to actually use the phrase "mission: impossible". Ronald D. Moore and Brannon Braga also wrote the screenplay for Star Trek: First Contact which featured the first use in dialogue of the phrase "star trek".
  • Movie Goof (revealing mistake): During the final motorcycle chase, when Ethan dismounts his bike while riding alongside to avoid being shot, you can clearly see wheels on the bottom of his shoes.
