Movie Trivia/Goofs

→ View All
  • Movie Goof (incorrectly regarded as a mistake): The end of the subway chase is sometimes thought to be due to a collision; in fact, the train hits a trip arm which is designed to apply the brakes when one train comes too close to the track circuit of the train ahead. The result would be an emergency braking, nowhere near the severity of a collision and would not lead to a derailment.
  • Movie Goof (continuity error): The car/train chase passes the same school four times, twice in each direction.
  • Subway car 4572, the lead R-42 rail car in the chase scene, has been renovated and is operating on the M and Z line, which runs from Jamaica, Queens to Lower Manhattan.
  • Movie Goof (continuity error): Doyle is following Charnier into the subway. When they stop at the stand, Doyle orders a grape drink. Then, Charnier boards the next train, and so Doyle follows, not with a beverage, but with a candy apple.
