Taps

Revealing mistake: During the fight scene, when the young man pulls Gen. Besh's pistol and fires it, the pistol is shown close up and slow motion. The pistol doesn't cycle. (I.E. the slide doesn't recoil to load another round) This make it obvious that the pistol is loaded w/blanks and no blank adaptor.

Continuity mistake: When Cadet Major Morelan is unbuttoning his jacket he unbuttons the top 2 buttons and the bottom 2 buttons. This leaves the middle 3 buttons fastened. He then sits down and is talking to Tom Cruise, Sean Penn and 1 other Cadet. In the next shot when he stands up, the bottom 3 buttons are now unbuttoned and only 2 buttons are fastened. He had sat down with his hands on his knees and that never changed. The button could not/would not unbuttoned itself.
