Suggested correction: This is incorrect. Both men are wearing gloves; Brandon's are a medium brown and Phillip's are tan.

Continuity mistake: When David is killed in the very first scene, the two men lay him neatly in the big chest, the rope does not hang out the side. But then one man bends over and discovers the rope halfway hanging out of the side of the chest. Plus it was knotted around David's neck anyway, so couldn't have been yanked out, it would have had to be untied.
