Predator

Continuity mistake: After Mac has stabbed the scorpion that was on Dillon's back, he puts on a box and crushes it with his boot. You see a clear picture before he crushes it and then after he lifts his boot away. It is facing a completely different direction than before he stands on it.

Continuity mistake: Billy carries an M-16 with an attachment under it when he leaves the burned village. When it shows him again the M-16 has no attachment. Right after that it shows him again and it's back.

Continuity mistake: In the scene at the end when Arnie crawls into the booby trapped gully you can see the predator behind him with the knives on his right arm already extended. The camera then switches to a shot of the predator extending the knives to finish Arnie off.

Continuity mistake: When the Predator blasts free of the net and his laser blows off a tree limb; in the first shot you can see the limb is hollow as it is shot off [and I for one have never heard of a hollow tree, but even if they do exist...] as the free limb swings down toward Poncho, you can see that it is no longer hollow, but completely solid.

Continuity mistake: On the attack on the village, Dutch fires a 40mm grenade at a grass hut and there is a soldier that slowly flips over from the blast. Seconds later, Poncho fires another 40mm grenade round, and that same soldier flips over again.

Continuity mistake: Near the end of the film, Arnold is lying in wait for the Predator after he lights the bonfire. It is pitch-black, except for the moonlight and the fire. But in the shot when the Predator jumps down through the trees, the skyline is brighter - almost early evening in brightness.

Continuity mistake: In the scene where the female prisoner falls to the ground and pretends to be hurt, then throws leaves in the soldier's face and tries to escape. She is stopped by another soldier, standing in her path with a gun in her face. The sequence with the gun pointed at her head is filmed in two shots. One looking up at the soldier holding the gun, the other with the gun hovering in her face. Every time it changes between these two camera angles, we find the soldier's hands in two completely different positions on the gun he is holding.

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Anna tries to escape for the first time, and is stopped by a gun to her head, her hat is hanging down over her right shoulder. In the next shot, as Dillon comes to picker her up, her hat is now on her left shoulder.

Continuity mistake: During the big firefight after Blaine was killed, Dutch moves his hand forward to eject the magazine from his weapon. An instant later, the side view shows his hand on the handgrip and the magazine being ejected - way too quick to get his hand back on the grip.

Continuity mistake: As Dutch climbs out of the water he crawls through mud. He looks back at the pursuing Predator and crawls backward through the mud. Even with all this crawling there is no way that he would have been covered head to toe in mud. If you look closely every little nook and cranny is full of mud, he would have had to dunk his entire body in a mud pit to accomplish this.

Continuity mistake: After Dutch has defeated the Predator, right before the 'What the hell are you?' exchange, the Predator spits some neon blood onto its face which immediately disappears.

Continuity mistake: When Dutch (Arnold) has been shot in the arm by the Predator, the wound changes between shots.

Continuity mistake: The first time Anna tries to escape she is stopped by Poncho. He confronts Dillon and tells him to put her on a leash, then raises his gun. Cut to Anna and he raises the gun again.

Continuity mistake: When Arnold had his face in the mud after swimming to shore to escape the predator, He looks back at the predator and his face is 1/2 covered with mud. The scene's after this his whole face and is covered.

Continuity mistake: In the first 20 minutes the camouflage on Dutch's face keeps changing between shots - black stripes on his forehead keep changing and then green stripes are added later in continuing scenes.

Continuity mistake: In the shot where Mac finally runs out of minigun ammo, the barrels stop turning. However, the whirring continues and the barrels are still turning in later shots. He didn't let go and pull the trigger again because the whirring was continuous.

Continuity mistake: During the montage scene of the remaining men setting the net trap for the Predator, all of the men are each doing individual jobs. Dillon does not take part initially, until Arnold says 'Instead of complaining, maybe you should help.' However, long before Arnold tells Dillon to help, Dillon can actually be seen helping out already. Watch closely...when Mac throws a rope across to Billy, Dillon is standing behind Mac, with his shirt off, fastening a rope to a tree, as if he was helping the whole time already. A similar shot occurs after Arnold's comment, but the first one is definitely before.

xx:xx:xx

Continuity mistake: When Dutch is running from the Predator after he sets the grenade off in the tunnel sequence, he avoids the Predator's gun blast by leaping and swinging on the branch of a dead tree. As Dutch's flying through the air, you can clearly see that it is a real branch. But as the screen switches to an explosion and back to Dutch, the branch is now some prop 2x4 and collapses as Dutch now plunges into the pond below.

xx:xx:xx

Continuity mistake: When Mac is killed by the Predator we see a shot of the Predator fully cloaked standing over the camera. As he slowly moves off to pursue Dillon there is a brief shot of Mac's twitching body with an un-cloaked object rising through the branches above.

xx:xx:xx

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.

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.

Mistakes

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].

Trivia
