Trivia

The character Jordan Tate makes a statement to Chief Ryback during a gunfight that is similar to statement made about an actual Medal of Honor recipient. James Fenelon, a Native American Sioux fought on Guadalcanal with Woodrow Wilson Keeble. He said of Keeble (another Sioux), "The safest place to be was right next to Woody." See more »

Goofs

When the terrorists and Miss July are walking past the CH-46 helicopter, the rotors are shown rotating in the same direction. While CH-46 rotors do counter-rotate when operating, the engines were shut down at the time. Therefore, there was no power to the rotors. The rotors were simply "windmilling", that is, rotating with the wind. See more »
