Live Free or Die Hard

John McClane (Bruce Willis) defeats Thomas Gabriel (Timothy Olyphant), stopping him from stealing all the economic data of the U.S. and rescues his daughter Lucy (Mary Elizabeth Winstead) and Matt (Justin Long).

A.J.

Continuity mistake: When John and Mai are fighting at the power plant, John tosses Mai up against a glass board. Her pony tail has come undone and her hair is a big mess. You see Mai from the back as she gets up to come after John. Her hair is now neatly combed and back in a pony tail. But as she begins to fight, her hair is once again undone and messy.

Thomas Gabriel: [Probing a gunshot wound in McClane's shoulder with his gun.] On your tombstone, it should say "Always at the wrong place at the wrong time."
John McClane: How about... [grunts.] Yippee-ki-yay... Motherfucker! [Grabs the gun and fires it through himself and into Gabriel.].

Trivia: The FBI agent who is assigned to escort John & Matthew through D.C introduces himself as "Special Agent Johnson." Then John says "Agent Johnson? Great." This is a nod to the first "Die Hard," which featured two FBI agents who were both named Johnson. (00:31:55)

More trivia for Live Free or Die Hard

Question: When the FBI take McClane and Farrell and the voice of Maggie Q is recognised by Matt - how does she know McClane is with Matt? She says to get her a line to the FBI driver and get me all the info on John McClane. At which point did they even know John McClane's name or who he was?

Answer: The radio line mentioned the officer's name in the seconds after Gabriel's voice recognition picked up Farrell's name.

Answer: They would have called ahead to DHS to advise them that a NYPD office of SO SO name would be coming to hoover building escorting Mr Feral. I would only assume when they said his name and Matt's name over the police band it triggered a hit for Matt's name, and then they listened to it, causing them to know who is riding in the LEO car. Hypothetically of course.
