Revealing mistake: When McDonald is in the tunnels and is called to pick up the phone, he picks up a red phone. It is a standard Bell TouchTone desk phone. To make the phone look more futuristic, there was no cord and it was disguised as a cordless phone. The port that the cord would plug into is covered by a piece of colored tape. This also can be seen in the operations center of Ape Control when the worker picks up the phone.
Continuity mistake: The protagonist is weilding his karate skills against the crooked cops in the final fight scene. One of his foes is wearing a white fishing cap. Superfly belts him and knocks of the cap, there is a cut and then the cap is on again. The cap is on and then off again twice more in the same fight scene.
Visible crew/equipment: When Spencer and Hill fly the second air plane, the studio headlights are mirrored in Hill's sunglasses. (00:20:35)
Factual error: When Craig is being tortured in "New York," a spy operative threatens to plug in the electric shock machine in a European socket/outlet, rather than an American-type socket.
Visible crew/equipment: Near the beginning of the film, when the whole party is moving through the swamp, there is a moment when the carriage containing the two women almost topples over. If you watch the right side of the screen when this happens you can see a hand come into frame to help steady the carriage. The hand is white and sleeveless (at least to near the wrist) and obviously doesn't belong to any of the soldier's or slave's. On the Blu-Ray commentary track for the film, Werner Herzog states that this is his hand. (00:09:10)
Continuity mistake: At the beginning of the movie, Bruce Lee enters a restaurant in the Rome airport and, because he can't read the menu nor speak the language, he accidentally orders five bowls of Campbell's Soup. When the waitress first delivers the five bowls, the soups are very different colors than they are in subsequent close-ups. Disappointed but hungry, Bruce plows into the soup. Ten sequential close-up shots show him dipping his spoon into bright red, tomato-based soups; but, by the time the spoon reaches his mouth, the spoon is dripping creamy white soup, every time.
Other mistake: It makes no sense that the pimp would die from having the tip of his tongue bitten off. (00:23:35)
Revealing mistake: At the beginning of the film O-Yuki is fighting the men in the forest and kills them one by one. When she kills the last one there is a close-up shot of her dagger entering his rib area and blood sprays out. However, if you pay close attention you can see the blood sprays out of his sleeve (presumably there is a device in there), not his torso. (00:01:18)
Revealing mistake: When Itto puts the cover on the baby carriage it's obvious that the sudden downpour of rain is just a sprinkler placed in front of the camera. Pay attention to the cover, Itto's clothing and the puddle behind the carriage, they remain completely dry/untouched. (00:11:00)
