Repo Man

Revealing mistake: In the opening scene where the alien car is pulled to the side of the road by the cop you can see two identical sets of tire tracks in the dust in the same place - a sign that this scene was filmed more than once in the same location and the filmmakers didn't wipe away the tracks. As the car pulls out you can see another set of identical tire tracks further up the road as well.

Revealing mistake: When Lite is shooting back, after Otto tries to repossess the blue clue, his last shot makes the same loud bang but there is no flash. (00:50:20)


Revealing mistake: Throughout the film, Agent Rogersz is supposed to have a metal hand however there are many times when you can tell it is just a steel-coloured glove as her fingers move like real human fingers when they should be stiff. The films producers have stated that they could not find a convincing prop in time for shooting.

Revealing mistake: At the end of the film there are a number of shots of the luminous green Chevy Malibu were you can see its license plate is backwards. The shots are flipped.
