Audio problem: Reference the dialogue in the hangar where Mav/Goose and Charlie are discussing what was happening when they met the MiG, and Goose says "You know, the finger." In the original 1985 cinema release, Charlie replies "Yes, I know the finger, Lieutenant," but in the video release this has been changed to "Yes, I know the finger, Goose." If you look closely you'll see that her lips don't move when she enunciates the word "Goose," and if you listen carefully you can hear the edit change in the soundtrack between "finger," and "Goose."
Audio problem: In the scene where Mick returns from the corroboree and Sue asks if he is telepathic, in the US version of the film, he responds with "You're a woman and a reporter, that makes you the biggest busy body on earth". In the Australian version, instead of "busy body", it is "sticky beak" which means nosy in Australian speak. In the US version, you can see him mouth the words "sticky beak", but it is dubbed with "busy body" for American consumption.
Audio problem: During the scene where Abdul is having Ingrid read the names of the Jews to be called up to first class cabin, Moustafa is arguing with the two nuns about another passenger who claims he is not Jewish. The nuns are telling Moustafa that "this man is telling the truth" and you can hear Moustafa yelling back, "Sit down, we know what we are doing" at least twice, but on both occasions it is very clear his lips don't match what he is saying.
Audio problem: When the Daggers get off the bus after chasing the main character a disembodied voice says, "I know where there ramp is." No one on screen is talking and the voice sounds nothing like any of the characters.
Audio problem: Halsey tries to get the family in the station wagon's attention by honking his horn. After the near-collision with the bus, the horn honks in a different note.
Audio problem: When Chris and Cynthia are hiding in the little shed from the zombies, there was a scene where a zombie grabs Cynthia and pulls her outside the shed. As she is being pulled out she reaches out to Chris and screams "Brad, Brad" a few times. Brad was her boyfriend whom they killed a few scenes before. But she was with Chris and not Brad so she should have called for Chris instead of Brad.SAZOO1975
Audio problem: The sounds of the weapons being used in the movie are evidently inserted in most cases. Like 1) When MacLeod fights Fasil in the Madison Square Garden garage, he uses an iron bar to ward off the sword blows - the twin sounds in both impacts are exactly the same, but in the second instance, the bar is hit only once. 2) When MacLeod and Brenda are ambushed by Kurgan, MacLeod swings a cable or chain at Kurgan. The sounds are exactly like those of the swinging swords.
