World's Fastest Indian picture

Continuity mistake: Just before Burt gets ready for his record-setting attempt, he wraps some asbestos cloth around his leg to protect it from the hot exhaust pipe. This does not allow him to fit his leg within the cowling of the bike, so he throws it off and puts his leg in without the protective covering.As he inserts his leg into the cowling, you can see that his pants leg is bunched up around his calf, not tucked into the top of his sock, as is Burt's usual procedure.However, a close up of the leg only a few moments later shows the pants leg tucked into the sock, and he could never have done that once he was fully seated in the cowling.

Kickboxer 4: The Agressor picture

Continuity mistake: At the final fighting scene (David Sloan vs.Tong Po), you can see that Tong Po's hair (a half shaved head with only a ponytail on it) is as fake as it can be: everytime when he moves his head a bit to rough around (sweeping his ponytail around while fighting) clearly shows that he's wearing a special kind of wig attached to his head. That 'wig' is so badly attached that it looks like he's got rimples on the back and on top of his head.
