Visible crew/equipment: Waller is telling "Task Force X" about the additional mission they need to pursue, saving Rick Flag. Watch the shot when Bloodsport repeats "Rick Flag?" and Waller replies "I know." The team is going through dense, uninhabited tropical jungle, but in the trees there are people in T-shirts just standing around looking at them. (00:31:50)
Factual error: During the briefing, Waller shows the map of the island of Corto Maltese. The map positions the fictional island in the Caribbean (it says "Mar Caribe"), but she says it is "off the coast of South America." The map does have also a set of precise coordinates in one of the middle quadrants; 45°43'36.0"S 56°32'58.2"W, which would place it far west of Argentina, surely nowhere near "Mar Caribe." (00:22:10)
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.
