Character mistake: When the EMTs are resuscitating Dr. Harris, they use a defibrillator despite their being on a wet metal dock. Not only is this highly dangerous to absolutely everyone present, it would be completely ineffective at restarting his heart as the water and the metal would dissipate the electric current too much for it to do any good. At the very least, they would have stabilized his spine then moved him to a dry surface before beginning defibrillation. (00:08:30 - 00:09:10)
Martin Harris doesn't exist. He was a false identity assumed by Martin (whose real name is William). William is an assassin hired to kill Bressler and steal his research on a new resilient crop that is worth billions. Liz was his accomplice and the fake Martin was a backup in case William failed to pull through. William goes to the hotel and alerts security, causing everyone to flee the building. The bomb William planted in the hotel explodes, killing Liz. William kills Fake Martin and he and Gina change their identities and leave the country.
Ernst JÃ¼rgen: We Germans are experts at forgetting. We forgot we were Nazis. Now we have forgotten 40 years of Communism - all gone.
Trivia: Throughout the movie if you look in the background at the various graffiti tags, one in particular stands out. Look for the tag OZ. In almost every scene that has graffiti on the walls you 'll see it somewhere in the background, sometimes more than once. Although it is common for graffiti artists to leave multiple marks in multiple areas, Berlin is a big city and it can be spotted too often for it to be coincidence.
Question: What (if any) is the significance of the "OZ" graffiti that pops up throughout the film? It became quite distracting as I thought it would pay off at the end of the film.
