Highlander II: The Quickening picture

Continuity mistake: During the big fight scene near the end, the baddie manages to drop the hero down an elevator shaft in a warehouse. The scene ends with a shot looking up the shaft at the bad guy laughing demonically, looking pretty mucky and with hair all over the place. Cut to the next scene where the bad guy appears in a room where the shield beam is generated. Now he is completely clean, has a different hairstyle, and if I remember right has a completely different costume on. (This is because the final fight is actually a combination of two separate scenes - the scene in the elevator shaft was originally meant to come halfway into the film, but the scenes around it were cut, so it was added into the final battle. It has been restored to its original place in the "Renegade" cut of the film, but this mistake is still present in the theatrical version).

Point Break picture

Revealing mistake: During the night surfing scene notice that the sun is evident in the background (look closely it does not appear long). There are also shots where you can see clouds and faint blue sky. Moments later you see Keanu and Lori sitting in the water with completely different lighting which was actually taken at night and further distinguishes that the surfing shots were not actually done at night time. I heard the scene was shot during the day with a filter so it looked like it was shot at night.
