    That in ROTF Leo said that the final battle in the 07 movie was in L.A. but in the 07 movie they called it Mission City? Kinda dumb, but just wondering if anyone else caught it.

    I caught it, but didn't take it too seriously. Another drop in the 'Mistakes' bucket.

    He said L.A. because goverment covered the story. I assume goverment gave a lot of fake information to help covering it. One of them is saying it L.A. instead of Mission City.

    Stuff that happens in smaller cities near Dallas gets reported as "Dallas" in national news sometimes. I'm sure this happens to plenty of other cities near a huge metropolis as well. It gives the general public better odds of understanding where the events took place geographically.

    The name mission city may have been a code name the military used for L.A.

    Apparently they do that.

    I was actually there when they were filming the last scene in Downtown L.A. Talked to one of the security people they told me it was an alien movie Called Sector 7 with a bunch of nobodies in it. I belived it and just walked away.
