Wild Wild West

Continuity mistake: During the fight inside the spider, West wraps one of Loveless' men in a chain and kicks him out the door. You clearly see that the chain comes completely off its roll and falls to the ground, presumably with the body. Yet later on in a wide shot of the spider you can see the body and chain still suspended from the spider. Then when it crashes, West uses the hanging body to save himself.

Suggested correction: We do actually not see it fall to the ground, just vanish outside. It could be that the end of the chain got caught onto something just beneath the opening.

Other mistake: Obviously, the spider needed a crew inside to manage its operation (feeding the boiler pressure going to keep it moving), but after West dispatches them individually, the spider seems to be able to run on its own when West and Gordon head back to Washington at the end of the film.

Suggested correction: There are still crew operating the spider, you just can't see them. Also, it's possible the thing is mostly automated, might need only 2 or 3 people in total.

Visible crew/equipment: When Jim West is hanging by the rains of the horse you can see the rider's boot as Jim West is telling the horses to back up.

Trivia: In the good guys' train, where you see all the guns in the wall you will see a noisy cricket (from Men in Black) and when he gets back to the train in the empty gun case you will see in the foam the shape of the noisy cricket after it was removed by the bad guy, just before Jim West has to settle for the belt gun and the belly dancer's dress.
