The Expendables

Continuity mistake: Paine punches Sandra and bruising appears immediately. However, when we see Sandra shortly after, she has no bruising at all.

Continuity mistake: In the scene When Gunner is leaving Barney's garage and says "Be Careful", he raises his right hand pointing back towards Barney but when the scene cuts to a shot looking into the garage from the outside, his left hand is raised and pointing back.

Visible crew/equipment: In the car chase scene on Vilena, there is a point where Sandra's truck is headed from screen left to right, partially towards the camera. The windshield reflects the overcast sky interrupted by the reflection of a boom crane.

Revealing mistake: Towards the end of the movie, when Steve Austin is on fire during the fight, you can see it is a stunt man wearing a burn suit for a split second.

Visible crew/equipment: When Jet Li and Sylvester Stallone are in the pick up truck just before the chase, the close up of them shows the reflection of the camera in the rear window. It is seen focusing and the lens rotating.

Continuity mistake: After the plane is docked Stallone and Statham enter the customs agency. Statham is wearing a Canon 5D MarkII camera on his neck with a small lens, he even shows it to the customs agent. After leaving the customs they walk across a square. The camera now has a big zoom lens attached to it. Statham is not wearing a lens bag. Where did he get that lense from? Also strange is that the lens is set in manual focus instead of automatic. Yet the picture stays focused even zooming in. This is not possible without looking at the screen. Plus the camera is turned off in the close up shot, with the image on the LCD composited in.

Continuity mistake: When the whole team flies to the island to rescue the girl, the plane body is black. However, when they fly back in the end of the movie, the plane has the "wildlife" inscriptions again.

Other mistake: When Statham has a 5d mark2 Canon camera there were a couple of mistakes in the close ups. At 29:58 the camera is actually off. At 29:55 it shows him twisting clockwise and you see the lens extend then it shows the lcd screen all zoomed in. But the lens he is using is a standard telephoto its only 24mm-70mm and he zoomed out to 24mm which is really wide. Plus that particular lens extends when it is at its widest unlike most other lenses.

Revealing mistake: When the guards enter the room where Sandra is tied to the chair, she kicks her leg out to fight them off but when the chair is tipped over, we see her feet securely tied together.

Continuity mistake: At the very end, after saying goodbye to the girl, when Stallone enters the cockpit he has a bulletproof vest on, when cameras change he doesn't have it and in the next angle he does have it on again.

Character mistake: Tool neglects to dress Barney's tattoo after he completes it. Not something a professional tattoo artist would neglect to do, especially when he is tattooing a friend.

Continuity mistake: When Sandra is captured and tied up, she is tortured with water. All the way through this scene her hands that are tied, change from being right over left hand, left over right hand etc.

Other mistake: When Sly Stallone and Jason Statham decide to turn the plane around and attack the dock, they approach it from behind flying above land. But when Statham is firing the guns, one of the shots from his perspective shows it approaching from the water.

Continuity mistake: In the first flight scene, looking out from the cockpit, some ordnance is visible on the wings. Later, viewing the plane from the outside, there is no ordnance, only fuel tanks.

Revealing mistake: When Lee meets up with Lacy's boyfriend, Paul throws his basketball away just before Lee punches him for the first time. However, when Paul actually flies backwards, Lee's fist is nowhere to be seen.

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Lee pays a visit to Paul on the basketball court, he and Lacy are both wearing helmets. Lacy gets off the bike and after a little taunting, Lee drives forward. As he rides away from Lacy his helmet is on, there is a cut scene, and suddenly his helmet is off and Lacy is walking away with it.
