Predator

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. (01:33:20)

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.

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

Other mistake: Right at the end, Arnold fires an arrow at the Predator which barely takes flight and fires very slowly. He is shown making the bow very tight so the arrow should come out very quickly.

Character mistake: When Mac describes what he saw after Blaine was killed, he states that he "capped off 200 rounds with the minigun." At the rate the minigun fires, and the length of time Mac was shooting, he fired at least 10 times that amount. Perhaps he meant to say "capped off 2000 rounds." This adds to another mistake: the ammo pack Blaine carried only holds 500 rounds but much more than that is fired during the course of the film.

Suggested correction: He actually says "capped off 20 rounds, in the minigun...full pack" just the word spacing is a bit odd. 20 rounds refers to his normal gun which ran out of ammo quickly.

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: 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

Continuity mistake: When Mac calls to Dillon about the scorpion you can see that there wasn't one on his back to begin with.

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.

Continuity mistake: Early in the movie, Mac throws the dead green berets' 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.

Poncho: You're hit! You're bleedin', man!
Blaine: I ain't got time to bleed.

Trivia: Jesse Ventura was delighted to find out from the wardrobe department that his arms were 1" bigger than Arnold Schwarzenegger's. He suggested to Schwarzenegger that they measure arms, with the winner getting a bottle of champagne. Ventura lost because Schwarzenegger had told the wardrobe department to tell Ventura that his arms were bigger.

Question: This bugged me for years, when Billy said there is something in the trees to Dutch and in the next shot it shows the trees, is the Predator there, as in visible onscreen?

Chosen answer: Yes. The predator can be seen not in the immediate shot after, but the one a few seconds later as they are seen walking away.

Before or after Ramirez gets hit in the face with the branch?
