Rocky IV

Character mistake: When Rocky makes his speech after his fight with Drago, he says that it's better that one person fights another instead of a million fighting a million (a US USSR war). The Russian translator misinterprets his speech and says that this is better than a million dollars. You don't have to understand Russian (although I do) to hear the translator says million dollars to confirm this blunder of a mistake. (01:22:25)

Character mistake: When the coach is playing chess with the Russian, he wins by moving the bishop. He moved it straight forward, but the bishop can only move diagonally.

Suggested correction: He doesn't move a bishop, he moves his pawn forward one spot.

Continuity mistake: When Apollo is knocked out during the fight with Drago, he falls to the canvas in slow motion. During the fall his hands are hanging down, but in the next shot, when he lies on the floor after the fall, his hands are in front of his head. In the next shot his arms are down again. (00:31:25)
