Predator

Continuity mistake: While the team are hearing the music on the chopper, the pushed buttons on the recorder change - the third one, then the fourth, then none.

Continuity mistake: Before the team finds the crashed chopper Dutch has just a bit of camouflage on his face but after that he has more.

Continuity mistake: At the beginning while Dutch meets with Dillon the cigar in his hands disappears and reappears between shots.

Continuity mistake: When Mac first shoots up the jungle, he runs out of ammo. From the behind shot the barrel of the mini gun isn't spinning. Then, from the front shot when Mac releases it the barrel is spinning. (01:46:25 - 02:46:30)

Continuity mistake: The bullet riddled tree that Poncho is hiding behind changes. It goes from severely riddled to not as much damage.

Continuity mistake: Early in the movie, Mac throws dog tags to Dutch. As he catches them, Dutch has his hand closed in a fist, and the dog tags are hanging to the left.. But in the close-up shot where we can read the name, his fingers are more open, with the tags resting in his palm.

Revealing mistake: Mac and Dillon go after the Predator. The Predator is sitting in a tree, and Mac points him out to Dillon. They both agree that they see it and take position. Mac crawls underneath the alien and is killed by his laser. The Predator then sees Dillon and lasers his arm off. Dillon's arm falls to the ground with the gun firing. Quickly Dillon turns and reaches for the machine gun around his neck. When he turns you clearly see his bloody right stump and his right arm sticking out the bottom of his jacket. [Note: As far as I can work out, this has been cunningly edited out of the UK DVD version].
