Factual error: The priest says that St. John saw the number 666 in his vision, but it was actually 999 inverted. St. John wouldn't read modern Arabic numerals like we do, it would be Roman numerals. The number 666 would actually be DCLXVI. (01:05:40)
Continuity mistake: After the priest writes down 666 on a piece of paper, he holds it upside down to reveal that it is 999. When we cut back to him a few seconds later, the numbers look completely different. (01:05:40)
Continuity mistake: In the scene were Arnold disconnects the carriages of the train, near the end, he has to jump across the gap. When we first see the gap it is a certain distance, the camera angle changes and it's a bigger gap, then the angle changes and it's closer, there is no way Arnold could have jumped that big gap. (01:42:35)
Trivia: At one stage, Satan walks past an ice rink in New York City. Over loudspeakers, we hear the song, 'Tidings of Comfort and Joy'. Satan smiles, then walks away, before the words, "Christ our saviour" can be heard.
Cardinal: We're not afraid to die for our cause.
Jericho Cane: Good, because I'm not afraid to kill you.
Father Kovak: You think you've seen everything? There's a whole world you've never dreamed of. Thomas saw it, and it destroyed him.
Jericho Cane: I've seen a lot, but nothing would ever make me cut out my tongue.
Father Kovak: Wait a few days.
Satan: How do you expect to defeat me when you are but a man, and I am forever?
Question: Why does Satan go through the trouble of hiring protective detail at the beginning of the film? Bullets have no effect on him, and even if he was hit, he could just make the claim that the shooter missed. And it's not like he's overly worried about people discovering his true identity, since he blackmails and corrupts people throughout the movie.
