Rambo III

Revealing mistake: Rambo, Trautman, and the Afghan prisoners are escaping the fortress by stealing the Soviet helicopter, and Rambo is preparing for liftoff. There is a close-in shot of the Soviet helicopter's rotor shaft, on which can be seen a small American flag.

Revealing mistake: When the Afghan village is attacked by the two choppers you see a lady running with a baby. It is quite obvious she is carrying a doll instead of a real baby.

Revealing mistake: The character Zayasen is played the French actor Marc de Jonge, who does really well despite that French words are at times substituted for Russian (e.g. "maintenant" is the French for "now", "chercher" means "to search". When he says (in Russian ),"Keep searching ['cherchez'] for the Americans. I have to return and refuel now ['maintenant']",and "I want every trooper on the border now ['maintenant']".

Mistakes

The soviet military equipment isn't all that Soviet ... e.g. the helicopter is supposed to be a "Mil-Mi 24 Hind" (Pilot and system operator sitting behind each other), in fact it's just a French "aerospatiale puma" with additional mock turrets and so on (crew sits side by side).

Trivia

Peshwar, Pakistan, actually was the site of many refugee camps and Afghan rebel support, and American intelligence operated out of nearby Islamabad, and the muhajadeen operated principally in the supposed "50 miles over the border." Especially considering the movie was filmed in Israel, the geographical shots are also pretty accurate, with only one problem: when Rambo says "across the valley is the border," across a plain with mountains in the distance, they are supposed to be escaping into Pakistan. There is only one spot where they could be, and it's right in the middle of the Khyber Pass, inaccessible to Russian tanks and armoured vehicles. The Russians would be riding on donkeys, not tanks. The only such place near the Afghan border that such a battle could take place would have Rambo and Trautman escaping into Iran.
