Continuity mistake: When Stallone catches Tango with his sister, he sees a stranger (the Chief) in the screen door in the background. He jumps forward into the door taking it with him, along with the stranger. The shot then shows the door get pretty smashed up, falling apart as they both hit the floor heavily. The next shot sees Stallone picking up a perfectly intact door off a crushed Chief.
Continuity mistake: Towards the end of the movie when they are in their big 4x4 destroying the camp, they jump off a small cliff. It is a night scene so they have their headlights on. They cut outside the truck as it jumps and both headlights work. They go back inside, then outside as it does a hard landing. You can clearly see one light is now out from the impact. They go to another inside shot, then outside after it lands. Both lights now work.
Continuity mistake: Tango is in the FBI agent's house and the guy pulls the handle of his car to get away and his car blows up. Tango flies through the air without his necklace. In the next scene, he has it on again. The guy in the air is clearly a stuntman.
Continuity mistake: The scene is at Tango's house where he reaches into the refrigerator and pulls out a plate of spaghetti. He drops it on the floor, the shot pulls away, then you see the plate again, only this time it has a fork.
Continuity mistake: In one scene, Tango sees a man looking in through the screen door, he jumps the man and rips open the screen. In the next scene, the screen is back to normal and covering the man's face.
Continuity mistake: Tango and Cash play good cop, bad cop with the bad guy on the roof of the building by taping a grenade to his mouth and intimidate him by threatening to pull the pin. They get the information that they need out of him. Cash says "We scared him so bad, he is standing in a puddle and it's not raining". They then take the grenade, pull the pin and stuff it down his trousers. The next shot is the grenade coming out his trouser leg onto the ground where there is no puddle to be found.
Continuity mistake: When Tango busts through the screen door of his house the screen door breaks apart, but then Cash walks up to him and it's together, lying on top of him.
Continuity mistake: Cash spins out the truck of the bad guy and it stops all forward momentum, but in the next shot it is racing at full speed. The truck then takes out many overhead fluorescent lights. Why has no other vehicle ever hit those lights? Then the truck partially knocks down 7 lights in a row, leaving them hanging vertically. They were damaged enough to knock them off the ceiling - but they are all undamaged enough to still be operating: keep in mind that these are fragile fluorescent lights. But no damage is done to the floodlights on the roof of the truck. (00:08:00)Bill McIntyre
