Rambo: First Blood Part II

Factual error: When Rambo plays possum then suddenly takes out the Russian officer's Hind Helicopter he uses an M72A2 light anti-tank weapon (LAW). When fired, the M72A2 has a back blast that can kill out to 100 feet, which means he would have either blown up his own helicopter or killed all the MIA's he had rescued...

Continuity mistake: When Rambo fires the rocket launcher at the Russian Hind helicopter, he is clearly seen aiming a LAW rocket launcher. The LAW is fired by pressing a lever on the top. But when Rambo fires, a quick edit from a previous shot (on the patrol boat) shows him pulling a trigger from the Russian RPG launcher he used to dispatch the Vietnamese patrolboat earlier in the film. The film returns to show him holding the LAW rocket launcher again.

Character mistake: In the showdown scene between the Vietnamese officer and Rambo, the Vietnamese officer empties an entire magazine at Rambo from only about 20 metres away but only manages to hit the ground around Rambo's feet. What was he doing, aiming at his feet? He deserved to get blown up to bits for that effort.

Add time

Revealing mistake: In a scene towards the end, we see a crowd of Vietnamese on a riverbank firing their machine guns into the trees...one soldier clearly walks directly in front of another soldier who continues firing away without hitting him.

Add time

Continuity mistake: When Rambo has rescued his first POW and running to escape to meet his check point, he is followed by the Vietnamese soldiers who chase him knee deep through a muddy swamp. The film scene then shows Rambo, seconds later, still running with the POW, but then returns to the Vietnamese soldiers who now have wet but very clean trousers.

Add time

Continuity mistake: In the end of the film after Rambo blows up the Russian helicopter, there is a hole in the front window through which Rambo shoots the rocket. In the next few scenes we see Rambo's helicopter and the hole in the window is gone, then it's back again, then it's gone, then it's back again when he lands.

Continuity mistake: When the Russian is shooting from the helicopter at Rambo in the water, the rocket pods are missing from the helicopter, but after Rambo gets in the helicopter and takes over, they are back.

Add time

Continuity mistake: During the helicopter chase scene, the mini-gun and the manual m-60 on Rambo's chopper change sides.

Factual error: The Russian Hind helicopter is in fact a French-built Aerospatiale Super Puma with attached wings.

Add time

Factual error: The big red "trigger" switch that Rambo uses to fire the rockets on the Huey is the radio/intercom switch.

Revealing mistake: While Rambo is flying the helicopter with the POW's you can clearly see the smoke shooting from a small metal thing below the gun.

Add time

Factual error: Near the beginning of the film, the airplane that will fly Rambo into the jungle is being refueled and prepared for takeoff. Ericson shines his flashlight into one of the jet exhaust ports to inspect it, an impossible task since the jet engines have already been started. Not even Rambo would be able to stand behind a jet exhaust without getting blown over or burnt to a crisp.

Revealing mistake: When the Hind helicopter first appears you can see that the rocket tubes are empty, yet Rambo later fires several rockets from them.

Add time

Factual error: When the close up of the engine for the plane to drop Rambo off is shown starting up, in the next shot a voice can be heard saying "APU start". The APU starts the engine, so the engine couldn't have been started first.

Continuity mistake: When Rambo leaves the village after blowing stuff up with the explosive arrows, he has about 15-20 arrows in his quiver, but when he kills the Vietnamese soldier, he only has one.

Add time

Continuity mistake: When Rambo is attacking the POW camp, the Gatling gun on his helicopter is firing (spinning) in one shot, not in the next, then back and forth, yet it never stops making firing sounds or killing people.

Add time

Continuity mistake: After Rambo lands with the POW's and Ericson says "Glad you made it", Ericson has his hands on his hips. In the next shot his hands are on his side and back to his hips in the 3rd shot.

Other mistake: During a scene shot on the bridge, you see two vehicles pull up - later you see that another vehicle has arrived with reinforcements in an aerial shot. At this time, you see a man firing a automatic weapon, and then one of his fellow soldiers crossing directly into his line of fire, but the man is not hit.

Continuity mistake: When Rambo is introduced to Murdoch, Murdoch asks for a drink and the man gets 1 from the drink machine, no other can drops down and no other shelves are full. Yet he brings 2 cans over.

Add time

Continuity mistake: When Rambo is escaping with the POWs in the helicopter, one of the POWs clearly machine guns the Russian helicopter and one of its rocket pods falls off and into a tree near a house, yet in the next scene it's back on.

Add time

Revealing mistake: Towards the end of the movie, when Rambo is setting everything afire with his exploding arrows, an enemy soldier stumbles through a patch of tall burning grass. As he falls to the ground covered in flames, the fireproof mittens the stuntman is wearing are visible.

Rambo: First Blood Part II mistake picture

Continuity mistake: In the POW camp, Co Bao is discovered by a guard who points a handgun at her. Rambo shoots an arrow into the guard's forehead, who then falls back against a tree with his cap down low over his eyes. In the next shot his cap is much higher on his head, and the arrow is pointing at a different angle. How could his cap have moved up that far with the arrow holding it to his forehead? For that matter, how could the arrow have moved when it was firmly embedded in the guard's skull?

Continuity mistake: As the Russian Hind comes up over the trees, it angles just right and it can be seen that the rocket launchers are empty.

Add time

Factual error: It is completely implausible that Rambo, an experienced green beret would be careless enough to get his gear caught in the plane while jumping out. Also even if he had gotten got, soldiers carry their gear in different layers that are quickly releasable via strap or clip just in case they do get stuck. Rambo would not have gotten stuck, and if he did he could detached his his gear easily and without all the drama.

Continuity mistake: When Rambo is firing at the computers at the end of the film the amount of ammo feeding into the gun goes from very little to much more in the next shot.

Add time

Continuity mistake: When the Russian chopper first spots the Huey on the ground, smoke is pouring out the left side of the Huey. A second later, there's barely any smoke.

Add time

Continuity mistake: In the aerial pursuit, the Huey goes from in front of the Hind, to port, then back to the front in a matter of five seconds.

Add time

Factual error: In the shot where Rambo is blowing up everything in sight from the Huey, there's a quick moment when it is seen from the front. The chopper has two seven tube rocket launchers, and after he fires all the rockets, there are trailing wires on the starboard pod. This is wrong because these launchers, as well as the nineteen tube model, fire 7.65 inch rockets that are electrically primed and fired from a contact pin in the rear, so no external wiring exists. Also, after he fires all the rockets, and therefore has no more, in the next shot, the launchers are loaded again.

Add time

Revealing mistake: When Rambo destroys the POW camp with the helicopter, the same hut blows up 3 times, (you can tell by the v-shaped flames).
