Plot hole: Jordan doesn't complete the course in under 12 minutes, yet master chief states she gets the standard 30 second deduction. But that still doesn't put her under the time limit.
Continuity mistake: During a training session, Jordan forms a human ladder with another trainee to get her team over an obstacle. The Master Chief is watching this scene through a night-vision scope on his rifle. His line of sight is initially level, then suddenly alters to show the view from a lower perspective.
Master Chief John Urgayle: Pain is your friend, your ally, it will tell you when you are seriously injured, it will keep you awake and angry, and remind you to finish the job and get the hell home. But you know the best thing about pain?
Lt. Jordan O'Neil: Don't know.
Master Chief John Urgayle: It lets you know you're not dead yet.
Trivia: Throughout the film, Master Chief John James Urgayle, played by Viggo Mortensen, reads and quotes poetry. In real life, Viggo is very fond of poetry; in addition to being an accomplished poet, skilled actor, artist, painter, and horseback rider, he published a book of his own poems entitled 'Ten Last Night' before he became well known.
