Best action movie mistakes of 1992
Continuity mistake: Just after the doctor started the post mortem on that little girl, the front of his gown is covered with blood. Yet, a few seconds later, after the two other guys appeared, his gown looks better, with less blood. And during the whole post mortem scene, the blood spot actually changes its size a few times.
00:17:55 - 00:19:55
Continuity mistake: When Buffy is out shopping for her dress and Pike is on his bike beside her, they stop to talk and have an argument. Buffy walks off and Pike turns his bike around to drive off, but as he does this, his bike suddenly moves a few feet away from the wall he was right next to in the previous shot.
Continuity mistake: In the hockey game, the teams playing are the Los Angeles Kings and the Toronto Maple Leafs. You can notice the real logos when the camera is away from the action. When it gets closer, though (probably because of copyrights), the maple leaf is turned into a spades (from cards) with only "Toronto" written and the Kings' word and crown in the logo become just an "LA" with a slightly different shape.
Continuity mistake: In the hotel scene when Van Damme is crashing through walls to escape the other Universal Soldiers who are shooting from outside, one shot from the inside of the room shows him hitting the wall with his left shoulder, but when the camera goes into the next room to show him coming through that wall, he is breaking through with his right shoulder.
Revealing mistake: During Kenjiro's fight with Phan Xu, Kenjiro cuts Xu's face. This cut goes across Xu's headband, but the headband is still in one piece. The cut is visible above and below the band, but the band itself is untouched. As Kenjiros sword is capable of cutting a steel chain, a piece of cloth should not pose any difficulty.
Continuity mistake: Near the beginning, Jake drives a motorcycle out of the warehouse shoot-out and spins out as police cars converge on him. He has blood coming out of the right corner of his mouth, the shot changes, cuts back to him and the blood is on the left, then right again in the subsequent shot.
Continuity mistake: When the terrorists attack the van at the bridge, shortly after the explosion, you see the terrorists crossing the water in a boat. In the background you can see the van on the bridge with its doors open, shortly after this the terrorists are at the van doors demanding that the police open the van doors!
Visible crew/equipment: At the end when Dr. Angelo and Peter are escaping the blast, just after Angelo jumps down over the facility wall and calls for Peter to follow, for a second you can see someone holding the back of Peter's shirt to help him drop down, or it might be a rigging of some kind.
Revealing mistake: During the standoff scene in the shipyard, Crazy Kung drops Tarzan (Tyson) from a magnet crane before reactivating the electromagnet, hoisting him up again. At the points where Tarzan starts dropping and where his fall is halted, you see a hole in the electromagnet and wires connected to the actor's back.
