Suggested correction: Or they could just be people waiting to cross the road. From the image posted it can't be seen that they are watching the scene being filmed only that some are looking in the same direction, eg. across the road they're waiting to cross.

Continuity mistake: When Bryan chases the spotter, all of the cars that had to stop are all positioned at different angles. After the spotter dies and Bryan walks back along the bridge, one of the shots shows all of the cars now parked in a perfectly straight line.

Continuity mistake: When the spotter is organising with the girls to go to the party outside their apartment, behind him you can see a grey Peugeot 806 people carrier with nothing behind it. In the shot as he walks away, a dark coloured car has now appeared behind the Peugeot - not enough time had passed for that to happen.

More quotes from Taken

Question: Technology-wise, in the scene where he is on the phone and the French police are tracking him down, how does he make that possible? A two-way radio "wired" to the cell phone? Only in Hollywood, or could it be possible?

Answer: Actually, what Bryan Mills did was perfectly possible. He strapped a mobile phone to the two way radio, and used the other two way radio to talk. By speaking into his radio, it transmitted it to the other radio, where the mobile speaker could hear and transmit his voice. The French police would have been able to triangulate the source of the mobile phone signal from the particular 'cell' (i.e. area) that the mobile was using - while that would lead them to the phone position, he'd be elsewhere talking on the other half of the radio.

Answer: Yea but how did he answer the call? A very long stick?
