Continuity mistake: At the end, the number on the helicopter is 711. As it takes off it is 712.

Continuity mistake: When the villain has the gun to Billy's head, in one shot it's touching his head, in the next he is about 1-2 feet away.

Factual error: As the guys zipline down the electric cables, they continue past every pylon without a problem. Cables are connected to pylons, so the connections to the zipline couldn't move past pylons freely.

Continuity mistake: When the villains get the last of the plutonium out of the cache, we see one villain shoot the chain suspending a concrete cap; causing it to fall and close the hole. A short time later, we see Maggie exclaim that the plutonium is gone. The cap could not have been lifted because all the miners were taken away, yet the cap is gone and we can see into the cache.

Continuity mistake: When the door gets blown in the room where Arnold Schwarzenegger (with a bag over his head) was strapped to a chair, Arnold and the chair fall down. From the shot behind him, you can see his right hand gets freed. Moments later when they help him back up, both his hands are strapped again.

Plot hole: The seaplane should have a watertight hull so the two jumping out the bottom makes no sense when they should of used the same exit at the rear of the plane that they loaded the jet skies with.

Continuity mistake: When Vilain has the gun to Billy's head he has it in his right hand. However when he is squeezing the trigger, it's his left finger.

Continuity mistake: When the bloke has the knife to Christmas's neck, the position of the blade changes instantly. Note the end of the blade and his ear.

Audio problem: When villain says "Well done, I'm impressed" the words don't match what he says and are a clear overdub.

Continuity mistake: When Church gives Barney the piece of paper, the way Barney holds it changes between shots.

Continuity mistake: When Barney leaves the bar the number plate on his bike is on the left, in the next shot it's on the right.

Revealing mistake: When the plane goes through the smoke at the start, the smoke doesn't react in any way - it keeps rising. Surely the wind from the plane would make the smoke drift a different way.

Revealing mistake: Just the bridge is blown up at the start, you can see all the soldiers have been replaced by dummies.

Continuity mistake: When the shootout starts in the airport, the Expendables shoot some bad guys and duck behind a service kiosk. We see Chuck Norris shoot one villain from the second floor behind and above the Expendables. Moments later, when the Expendables advance into the airport, they shoot several bad guys that are on the same level Chuck Norris should be on. Chuck Norris apparently disappeared.

Character mistake: In the bar scene, Gunner asks Barney Ross for a pen to write an equation on the piece of tissue. He said that the equation was Einstein's theory of special relativity, but it's actually Einstein's equation for general relativity.

Continuity mistake: In the opening chase with the seaplane the fuselage changes shape from being pointed at the tail end to being square to load the jet skies and as they crash through the exploding bridge to being pointed again.

Continuity mistake: When Vilian puts his sunglasses down at the end, they move between shots.

Continuity mistake: When Booker and Barney meet for the first time, Barney's necklace is either covered or uncovered depending on the shot.

Continuity mistake: Just after Jet Li jumps out of the hatch at the start, we see the other guy taking a drink from his hip flask and you can tell the hatch is still open by the wind blowing his hair. Camera shows the outside of the plane and the hatch is closed.

Audio problem: When Jet Li is using the frying pans as weapons at the start, he hits different people in different places on the body, but gets the exact same sound.
