Predator

Visible crew/equipment: When Dutch is going to check the area of the trap and to lure on Predator, there are visible some boxes at the top right corner of the shot. Probably set equipment. (01:06:00)

Zenzucht

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. (01:08:55)

Revealing mistake: When Dillon and Anna are arguing in the terrorists hideout near the burnt out helicopter, the corpse on the ground behind them moves his foot.

Other mistake: The time of the chopper arrival for rescue (after the village attack) is said to be 09:30 but the voice on the radio says 10:30.

Rob Jansen

Continuity mistake: In the last helicopter scene the General's rank changes from 1 star on his hat to 2 stars on his collar.

Revealing mistake: When Bill Duke picks the scorpion off Carl Weathers' shoulder with a knife, you can blatantly see some gum or similar that's been used to stick the scorpion onto the tip of the knife. Even if it's meant to be Bill Duke's gum, it's not on the tip of the knife before he stabs it.

Suggested correction: It isn't gum, it's literally the scorpion's guts.

There are no guts in the scorpion's body, so it's obviously some material to stick scorpion to the tip of the knife, and it's blatantly visible in the close shot.

Suggested correction: It is gum. You can see Mac chewing gum just beforehand, and afterwards when he holds up the scorpion, he is no longer chewing. The implication being that he jammed the gum onto the knife before he shouts Dillon over, knowing it would be handy to stick the scorpion. (Also probably because it was the easiest option to stick the live insect to the prop knife).

The problem is there is no gum on the knife when he stabs with it.

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.

oswal13

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

oswal13

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)

Tony

Revealing mistake: While the Predator is healing himself with his surgical material, the marks of the brands are visible.

oswal13

Revealing mistake: While Dutch is struggling with the Predator in the jungle, in several shots the stuntman is visible.

oswal13

Visible crew/equipment: When Mac and Dillon are hiding in the hole talking about how they are going to kill the predator, a boom mic is briefly visible at the top of the screen between them. (01:10:20)

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

Video

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: Blaine is dead in the body bag, but when Mac puts the flask on his neck, you see his pulse.

Poncho: Get that stinking shit out of my face!
Blaine: Bunch of slack jawed-f*****s around here! This stuff will make you a god damn sexual Tyrannosaurus! Just like me.
