2 plot holes - chronological order

Plot hole: Towards the end of the movie we see Steven Seagal telling a room full of reporters and Native Americans that we must not pollute our planet by using oil. That we must find alternatives to crude oil and not harm or further damage our atmosphere. During the course of the movie Steven blows up a helicopter, explodes a satchel bomb on pristine terrain, and lastly blows up an entire oil refinery that rains havoc on the environment by polluting the water, air and soil with crude oil and dead bodies he is voicing to protect.

New this week Suggested correction: A character being potentially hypocritical isn't a plot hole. Taft believed all his actions were for the greater good and that shutting down the refinery by any means was a necessary act. Telling people after the fact that they need to care more about the environment isn't a movie mistake at all, it's just the character's opinion.

Plot hole: When MacGruder is alerted by the security guard about Taft accessing the restricted file, MacGruder somehow knows the file pertains to the purchase of the faulty equipment even though the guard never said what the file was about.

Continuity mistake: In the very first scene when Seagal first gets off the helicopter we see that he's wearing a navy blue shirt tucked into his jeans. In the next shot he's shown wearing the yellow suit but instead has a white shirt on underneath instead of the navy blue one.
