Q) When the lightning strikes all electronic equipment is rendered useless, as seen with the cars, mobiles and Tom Cruise’s watch. How then a few minutes later, with the cars still not functioning, did a guy manage to film the scenes with a hand held digital camera?
A) Thanks for your question. I really don’t know, all I can guess is that it was a continuity mishap. Even if it was the electric mains which were blown out, it would still mean watches, camera and cars would work. So all I can conclude is that it was a scripting error.
