The Running Man

Revealing mistake: In the Sub-Zero fight scene, Laughlin (the black man) is on his back and Sub-Zero is standing over him. When Sub-Zero tries to kill Laughlin by hitting him with the hockey stick, he rolls to his right. Sub-Zero pulls the stuck hockey stick from the ice and tries to hit Laughlin again, but he then rolls to his left. The stick is once again stuck in the ice, but to the left of the stick there is another divot in the ice, suggesting Sub-Zero struck on Laughlin's right side twice, but in fact it was only once. Sub-Zero tries to hit Laughlin a third time, but he rolls to his right for the final attempt.

Revealing mistake: When Fireball takes off for the first time, if you look way above him at the top of the tower block behind him, you can see the shadow cast by the rig that is used to lift him up.

Mistakes

In the scene after the prison break, we see Richards, Weiss and Laughlin walking through the city. On the big television screen there is a commercial for The Running Man game show. The footage they feature on the commercial is footage from the episode Richards is in. How could they show footage from that episode if it has not taken place yet?

Trivia

When Killian is talking about the next possible contestant, he points out he's 120 pounds and wouldn't last 30 seconds. This is somewhat making fun of how they used Arnold Schwarzenegger to portray Ben Richards. In the book "The Running Man" (which has a very different structure), Ben Richards is described as "scrawny", the complete opposite of Arnold.
