Factual error: In reality, a face transplant like this couldn't work for multiple reasons. Primarily because of blood type, with Castor (Cage) being AB and Sean (Travolta) being O Negative. Organ donors and recipients need to have the same exact blood type for transplants to work, otherwise the recipient's body will reject it even with medication. In addition, intensive surgery is needed to connect a donor face to a recipient (ex. Connect blood vessels), which takes more than several hours.

Factual error: When Watson is pinned down by Moran at the arms factory in Germany, he hides behind a large artillery piece. He looks around and sees a pair of hearing protection. They appear to be modern hearing protection ear muffs, wrapped with cloth to make them look period. They have plastic clips to detach the ear cups from the metal band, which gives them away as being modern. They appear to be Peltor style hearing protection.

Factual error: During the LAPD gun exchange program, an explosion happens from (according to the show) claymore mines being in the trunk of a car. In reality, this wouldn't happen as Claymore Mines are very stable and safe. The explosive used, C-4, is shock stable and temperature stable. The mine will only go off when used with a detonator.

Revealing mistake: When Aziz (Art Malik) shoots at Harry (Arnold) in the bathroom, he has a rifle with two magazines taped together. If you look closely, the second magazine taped next to the one in the gun is empty. He then reloads the gun by flipping the second, empty, magazine and loading it.

Revealing mistake: Towards the end of the film when Simon and his men are found by McClane (Willis) and Zeus (Jackson), Simon's men can be seen taking MP5K submachine guns. The guns are actually Daisy MP5K Airsoft replicas. At one point, a man "pumps" the forward grip of the gun to cock it. Indicating it as an airsoft gun and not a real submachine gun.

Revealing mistake: When Kersey tries to shoot Wilson at the hospital, he lifts up the table to knock his gun away from him. Kersey fires a shot at the table when it moves up, but a hole doesn't appear in the table. This indicates the gun was loaded with blanks (obviously) and no other effects were done for the scene.

Factual error: When we first see Caine (Bacon) enter the military base, there are Willy's Jeeps used by military personnel. By the year 2000, the Willy's Jeep was long-since replaced in the U.S. Military by the HUMVEE, which we also see in the film.

Revealing mistake: When the T-800 is reloading his shotgun in the alley with John, he reaches into his pocket, presumably to grab shells for the shotgun. In the shot with him and John in frame, his hand comes out of his pocket empty, but we hear him load another shell into the gun in the next shot.

Factual error: When Maney and Frank are chasing Bonnie and Clyde in a dusty field, Maney (Woody Harrelson) fires his Colt Peacemaker revolver. His first shot is CG since the gun fires without him cocking the hammer. The Colt Peacemaker is a single action revolver, requiring the hammer to be cocked each time in order to fire the gun.
