Trivia
The tune that the team sings at the table in the film's trailer, is the theme from the original TV series.

As Alex Montel (Olivier Martinez) is being handcuffed by Jim Street (Colin Farrell), he is seen face down over Alex Trebek's star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Alex Trebek also provides the (uncredited) newscast voice-over during this shot.

When a location was being picked for the plane escape, one consideration was closing I405 or a stretch of another highway to land a Learjet on, but that was "out of their reach", so they shut down the 6th St Bridge from 6pm to 5am every night for filming, and used CGI effects for the plane's approach. The scene with the aircraft taking off was actually done, with an aircraft equipped with a V8 engine so they could drive it down the bridge.

Goofs
When Street and Gamble fast rope in to the bank in the opening scene, you can clearly see lines from the ropes and footprints from a previous take.

In the final scene outside the S.W.A.T. van from the outside, the camera crew is reflected on the black paint and in the window as the shot tilts up.

During the training montage in the Kill House, there is an overhead shot of one of the characters tossing a flashbang grenade into one of the rooms. The explosion and smoke cloud, however, can clearly be seen to originate not from the actual grenade, but from a previously laid FX charge almost a foot away.

Q
What gun does Hondo use in the film?
A
The rifle Hondo gives to Street in the gun cage to tune up is an M-4 carbine. Later, during the prisoner transport mission, Hondo and Sanchez are both seen carrying MP-5 submachineguns.
Q
Why was Alex Montel arrested?
A
Alex Montel, the French criminal was originally pulled over by the police because his left taillight was out. Which is a tickitable traffic violation. While running the plates the car was shown registered to his uncle. An arrest warrant was issued for the uncle and while Alex only had a foreign passport, the cops decided to detain him until they could verify his identity. That is why he was arrested originally, the charges got ammended when his picture and prints returned a match in the Interpol database.
Q
What was the cameraman in the first scene filming?
A
The cameraman who was filming in the first scene, was a cameraman for a local news channel who was providing a live feed to that channel. He manages to get a shot of Gamble aiming at the terrorist with the hostage. A terrorist saw this on the TV and says to kill the hostage on live television. Just before the hostage is killed, Gamble shoots but intentionaly shoots the hostage in the arm, which causes the terrorist to drop her. If it wasn't for the cameraman, most of the events in the movie may not have occurred.
