Revealing mistake: When Danny falls down from the ceiling, watch closely and you can see the security wire attached to his leg. (00:34:40)


Revealing mistake: When the subway train slams on the brakes, the camera cuts to a shot showing the sparks coming off the wheels as the train is slowing down. If you look at the wheels carefully, you can see that the train is already stationery, and the camera is panning down the train to give the impression its slowing down. (00:58:30)

Revealing mistake: At the very start of the film, when the car blows up, if you look to the right you can see a piece of debris (it looks like a car door) flying through the air. Look on either side of it and you can see the black cable it's gliding on. (00:02:45)

Revealing mistake: When the predator fires his plasma caster in the slaughterhouse scene, you can see that the simple laser blast has been replaced by a Chinese sparkling firework on a string. In the original "Predator" you could see this same effect on a string but it was not nearly as spectacular and easier to miss. (01:17:50)

Revealing mistake: In the scene where the Predator has fallen into the bathroom of an old couples apartment, you see all types of building materials such as brick, wood, and such laying on the floor from the impact. If you look closely, some of the bricks actually bounce up and down after the Predator hits the floor. (01:25:50)

Revealing mistake: In the slaughterhouse scene, look carefully after the predator throws the disc to Keyes. The disc slices the beef that are hanging, but just before it slices Keyes, there is a split-second stop. (01:21:50)

Revealing mistake: When the Predator runs out of the bathroom after doing minor surgery on himself, you can see that when he punches through the bathroom wall and into the living room and from the living room into the hallway, that both sets of doors had been pre-cut to achieve this effect. Even with the amount of force applied by the Predator, to do this considering how powerful it is, the wooden slats that were used in the old days to give homes extra strength and to help plaster adhere to walls would certainly have been more rugged looking than they were as in the movie they are neatly cut into the shape that the Predator, had to go through. (01:29:55)

Revealing mistake: When Glover slices off the Predator's hand with the disc, you can see the hand has already been cut and then re-attached to the costume (there's a very visible dividing line between the two). (01:25:30)

Revealing mistake: When the drug lord falls from the roof he lands on a table yet it doesn't collapse under his weight. The building was pretty tall. (00:10:25)

Revealing mistake: At the slaughterhouse fight, both the Predator and Harrigan shoot simultaneously, Harrigan with the machine gun's grenade launcher and Predator with the gun on his left arm. When the shot is fired, visible on the Predator's weapon is a wire/fuse. (01:17:50)

Continuity mistake: As Harrigan is walking away from King Willie in the alley, Willie turns toward him to say, "Prepare yourself." His face is well-lit. In the next shot, Willie is facing away in the background and his head is entirely in shadow. He's turned and lit again for his next line. (00:47:00)

More trivia for Predator 2

Question: Right after the Jamaicans kill Ramon Vega and the predator slaughters all of them, Jerry Lambert says, "she (Ramon's girlfriend) never made it". What could she have died of? She was seen walking with Leona Cantrell and didn't seem wounded, and the predator would not have hurt her because she was unarmed. If she were wounded, she would have been checked out by paramedics right away. (00:31:20)

Chosen answer: Jerry means she never made it to the hospital. Keyes' goon squad intercepted the ambulance and snatched her to interrogate her about the Predator.
