The Edge (1997)

Corrected entry: In the first scene they get off the jet and into that old red plane. Anthony Hopkins character is talking to someone, and we hear the engine of the red plane starting to turn over, but if you look closely for a split second over Anthony Hopkins left shoulder the prop of the plane is not even moving. Now I know nothing about planes but I do know that the prop is attached to the crankshaft which should turn when the engine is turned over to start. (00:03:15)


Correction: That's a De Havilland Otter floatplane, and what you hear is the magneto-fired starter motor turning over. The engine hasn't fired and the propellor is still, as it should be.
