The Suicide Squad

Other mistake: Despite being a deadly marksman (only a few minutes earlier in the movie he stopped a bullet directed at him shooting it off the air), Bloodsport snipes several times at the huge kaiju featuring a massive eye in the central part of its body, and never once hits it. (01:51:45)

Other mistake: Escaping from her captivity Harley kills a dozen people with the javelin in brutal gory ways, but when she gets on the taxi the weapon's golden finiments appear to be spotless. (01:14:00)

Other mistake: Beach scene; by the clocks in the control room it's supposed to be just before or at most past midnight (22:52 in Florida, presumably). Explosions nearby, barely past the thick of vegetation, but the team instantly goes to sleep as if they were anyplace safe. To make it more absurd, they awaken in the 'middle of the night' when Polka-Dot Man relieves himself and King Shark tries to eat the rat lady. Cut to the control room, and it's 23:53. It's as if they did not try to move any distance at all. (00:12:35 - 00:29:40)

Other mistake: Bloodsport and the others see the explosions Harley is running from, which are less than a couple miles off. The beach itself should already be lit by the explosions and burning wreckage, which the team couldn't fail noticing as they were approaching. To make the distances more ludicrous, when we see Flag's signal in the control room it's said he's "1 mile north" of them, He's already halfway towards the western isthmus. No reason why it'd take them a whole day to make it to their destination.

Other mistake: Javelin already appears amongst the deceased (red layer) on the monitors, but only intermittently, in different shots his status is normal - at the very least he should have the 'critical condition' brown overlay that TDK has. (00:14:00)

Continuity mistake: An personal assistant brings news about the attack on Jotunheim. Suarez turns towards her holding a sheet, but in the previous shot he already threw the document on the desk striking a pensive pose. (01:22:05)

Trivia: In the prison sequence, at one point a TV is visible in the background playing the famous and infamous cult-film "The Toxic Avenger." "The Toxic Avenger" was produced by the independent studio Troma Entertainment. Director James Gunn actually got his start working for Troma, writing the cult favorite "Tromeo and Juliet," and doing various other behind-the-scenes jobs on several other Troma productions. As a thank-you, Gunn often includes Troma easter-eggs in his films.
