Starship Troopers

Visible crew/equipment: When they capture the brain bug, just before Carl says "It was a man called Zim [who captured the bug]", you can see the shadow of the camera on his shoulder. (It was the DVD version, not the cinema).

Visible crew/equipment: In the scene towards the end, in the cavern containing the brain bug, there's a pyrotechnic set-piece of a massive quantity of ammo being used up. This was filmed from a number of angles, and in one shot, looking down across the cavern there is a camera man and an assistant visible in the mouth of one of the tunnels leading in. I don't know if this is corrected in the DVD release, but it was certainly there in the UK theatrical version.

Visible crew/equipment: When Rico gets thrown from the tanker bug and lands on his back on the ground, a piece of the flap covering the mattress pops up.

Visible crew/equipment: When Rasczak tells everybody to fall back into the compound and "hold what they've got", there is a shot of one of the bugs being killed and landing on some silver containers, knocking them over. The wires used to pull the containers over are visible.

Mistakes

Toward the end, Carmen Ibanez gets stabbed through the shoulder when she is brought before the big master alien thing. If you were to sustain such an injury, there would be so much swelling, not to mention just destroyed tissue, that you wouldn't be able to move that arm for weeks. Yet a few minutes later, she is seen hefting around a very large assault rifle, and seems to have no difficulty. I guess it's a pretty standard action movie "heroes can temporarily ignore injury in order to save the day" kind of oversight, but it just seems exaggerated in this case, considering how severe the shoulder trauma looked.

Trivia

The view that people acquired citizenship and the right to vote through military service reflected the views of "Starship Troopers" author Robert Heinlein. His views were influenced by his years in military service during World War II, and what he saw as the supposed "laziness" of civilians.
