Movie Trivia/Goofs

→ View All
  • Movie Goof (continuity error): In the opening scene, after Belini leaves the bar, Sands is seen taking off his fake arm with the yellowish piece of paper on the table in front of him containing the information given to him by Belini. The shot then shows Sands putting his fake arm in the bag, and when the next shot cuts back, the paper is missing from the table.
  • This is the second movie in Hollywood's history to be located in the city of Culiacan. Culiacan is a city, but the President (Pedro Armendariz) says that Culiacan is a state of Mexico.
  • The real guns the filmmakers intended to use were delayed at the Mexican border for two weeks, so for the first two weeks of filming only rubber prop guns were used, with all the visual effects added digitally in post production. At first, Antonio Banderas was so thrown off by using silent prop guns that he was mouthing "bam" noises as he fired off fake shots.
  • Movie Goof (factual errors): The president wears the sash over his suit. The only time the president of Mexico wears the sash over his suit is when he is sworn into office.
