Red Dawn

Visible crew/equipment: In the scene immediately after the Cuban leader allows Swayze to leave, as he carries the dying Sheen, Swayze is walking in a park towards a park bench. Watch closely on the left at the start of the scene and you can see the shadow of the camera crew. Very visible.

Visible crew/equipment: The two antagonists are talking about the Wolverines while standing in the street in town. This is moments before the building explosion goes off that Jennifer Grey planted. On the bottom of the frame, the shadow of the camera is visible.

Revealing mistake: When Col. Tanner is on top of the Russian tank, he is firing his pistol into it. After a few shots, you can see that the slide on his gun locks back, showing that the gun is empty. Tanner does not reload, but is none the less able to keep shooting afterwards. (01:11:25)

Col. Andy Tanner: You think you're tough for eating beans every day? There's half a million scarecrows in Denver who'd give anything for one mouthful of what you got. They've been under siege for about three months. They live on rats and sawdust bread and sometimes... on each other. At night, the pyres for the dead light up the sky. It's medieval.

Question: When Daryl is confronted by his friends, he tells them that he was forced to swallow something. What was it and why kill him if he was forced to do it?

Answer: It was a tracking device which gave away their location. Since they couldn't remove it, they decided to kill him as he was now a liability.
