When Jack is in the mall and enters the room with the ventilation controls, you see him go for the rightmost lever, in the next shot he is pulling the lever to the left of that one, yet there is not enough time for him to have moved on and you don't hear him pull the lever down. In total there are 5 levers, we only hear 4, though he starts with the rightmost one and finishes with the leftmost one, we see him pull all the levers. See more »


Lynn McGill: Jack, this is a direct order from the President. Now enter the correct code and let them release the gas. Now!

Live to Fight Another Day
31 January 2019 | by HitchcocSee all my reviews

While this had the usual action scenes, it lacked reality. To think that because one guy may lead them to the canisters, they would sacrifice everyone in a shopping mall is ridiculous. What would happen is Jack would kill the terrorists and wait for the next opportunity. Mike and the President show their cowardice again when they decide to make Cummings death look like a natural reaction to depression.
