Wanted

Question: I have a question about the car chase scene. How is it possible that a van of this size is able to catch up to a Viper? As far as I know that car can reach 60mph in less than four seconds.

Answer: Yes, but when you're driving through streets crowded with people and other vehicles you can't just stand on the gas pedal or you'd wreck the car. The van can catch up because the Viper can't drive at its top speed.

Question: Did anyone else catch on to what the Russian was doing during his time at the fraternity? I believe he was laying down scent trails to guide the mice to key locations in the building. In one close up of the mice (If I remember correctly) you could see them sniffing the ground and apparently following a scent. How else would you get them all into the building without possibly running in Wesley's direction? It seemed like the mice knew where they were going. Before I submit this as trivia, I want to know if someone else thinks the Russian laid down scent trails.

Answer: I believe it is meant to be assumed that the Russian laid down peanut butter or the scent of peanut butter in strategic points for the rats to follow.

Question: Why would the filmmakers cast an English actor who tried to do an American accent badly when they could have just cast an American actor instead?

Answer: There's rather more to acting that getting the accent spot-on accurate. The filmmakers would have looked at many possible actors and picked the person that they thought was best. A better question would be "Why would the filmmakers cast an American actor when they knew that there was a Scottish actor out there who would be better in the role?" Has a simple answer - they wouldn't.

Question: Anyone want to explain the opening sequence? The guy was able to rocket himself through the window with apparently superhuman speed and reappear behind the shooter within a few seconds despite crashing several stories below. No superhuman abilities, other than absurdly good marksmanship and fast reflexes are stated during the film.

Answer: Pretty crazy to say that they have no supernatural abilities when the first thing shown in the film is that they do. Their reflexes, enhanced strength and speed, the ability to curve bullets (which is way beyond "absurdly good marksmanship") - all these are well into the superhuman class. Granted, the more extreme abilities aren't used that much in the film, but it's stated in the film that the individual performing those actions is one of their best. But it's all there - your assessment of their abilities is a long way below the mark.

Continuity mistake: When Fox and Wesley first jump off the building onto the moving train, Fox has on boots with heels, but when she lands on the top of the train, her boots are flats.

Wesley: Want to hear something sad? I use an ergonomic keyboard to keep my repetitive stress injury in check. Just the fact that I repeat something enough that it causes me stress is fucking sad.
