Other mistake: When Deckard visits the Tyrell Corporation, he prepares to test Rachel with the "VK" machine. He is shown putting his briefcase of the table and lifting the "VK" machine out and onto the table. If you look closely, the "VK" machine is already on the table and Harrison Ford is miming the lifting - there is nothing in his hands! (00:19:45)
Audio problem: Deckard investigates the maker of artificial reptiles; an Abdul somebody. It's obvious that the dialogue was added as neither actor is in sync with the sound. The end of the scene has the storekeeper's voice telling Deckard the information he was seeking while Deckard's mouth is the one moving. Deckard's mouth continues to move even after Abdul's lines are finished and the scene cuts. This has been corrected in the 2007 Final Cut of the film, but exists in all previous versions. (00:48:45)
Continuity mistake: When Decker shoots the snake-woman replicant, she hits the glass and in one shot you can clearly see that is not the actress that hits the glass, but a stuntperson dressed like her. This has been corrected in the 2007 Final Cut of the film, but exists in all previous versions. (00:57:50)
Revealing mistake: When Zhora dresses in Taffy Lewis' club she puts on high-heels. Later during the chase scene and when she flies through the windows, she is wearing normal boots. And when she is shot the second time, her right hand holds a control, probably for the blood bags on her back. (00:54:20 - 00:57:45)
Continuity mistake: When Deckard shoots the snake-woman in the back and she falls through several layers of glass she lands on her stomach, with her head lying on the left side. In the next scene Deckard is standing beside her, but now she has turned her head, lying on the other cheek. Her arms also change position. (00:58:30)
Audio problem: In one of the scenes at J.F.'s house, J.F. is talking to Batty and Pris. Batty is sitting down and starts talking about J.F.'s chess game. Batty says "your opponent" then J.F. says "Oh, Dr Tyrell." While he says this the chess game is shown, then it cuts to Batty and J. F. and he continues "I've only beaten him once at chess." For this line his lips are not moving. (01:18:45)
Other mistake: Bryant mentions that 'six skin jobs' escaped and that one got fried trying to get into the Tyrell building. Four of them die in the movie, so what happened to the last one? [In the "Director's Cut" and "Final Cut" versions the math has been fixed. Bryant now says that two of the replicants got fried, not one.] (00:14:00)
Continuity mistake: The dialogue between Holden and Leon in the beginning never matches the interrogation tapes during the films (excluding Deckard's recall a moment before he confronts Pris). Most notable are the time and speaking manner. It can be heard when Deckard and Bryant listen to the tape. (00:05:35 - 00:13:35)
Other mistake: When the woman puts the snake scale under the microscope she doesn't take it out of the bag. She turns on a monitor to view the image; the image when shown is on a different monitor (you can tell by the controls to the right of the image). The image is not a snake scale, it is a marijuana leaf from the Sharf book (his book is in the ending credits). (00:47:15)
Batty: I've seen things you people wouldn't believe. Attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion. I've watched C-beams glitter in the dark near the Tannhauser Gate. All those moments will be lost in time, like tears in the rain. Time to die.
