Visible crew/equipment: In the scene at the Statue of Liberty where Remo is walking from the torch to the head and is knocked off the plank, the safety wire attached to him and the scaffold is visible. (01:02:00)


Continuity mistake: When Grove is shooting at Remo with the handgun and Remo is ducking the bullets, the trees behind Remo change position throughout the scene.


Continuity mistake: When Grove starts shooting at Remo who is holding onto the tree, you see Remo holding on with both arms wrapped around the tree, but when the camera angle changes he is now holding on with one arm wrapped around the tree.


Continuity mistake: When Mac gets attacked by the dog, he lets the dog grab onto his fake arm and you see from the rear camera angle his other arm reaching into his jacket to release his fake arm. The camera angle changes and his arm is now at his side and you see him reach into his jacket again to release the fake arm.


Continuity mistake: When Chiun asks Remo if there is something he needs to ask him, (after Remo finds out Chiun will have to kill him to protect C.U.R.E.), you see Chiun take off his glasses and look to the side as he asks the question. The camera angle changes and he still looking straight ahead and then you see him turn his head to the side again.


Continuity mistake: Right before Maj. Fleming walks out of the office building, you see the guy with the great teeth sitting in his car with both hands on the steering wheel. The camera angle changes and you now see one had on his collar and the other on the seat of the car pushing the camera button.


Continuity mistake: Right after Remo and the Major escape the Gas chamber, you see them walking through the woods and when they start walking down a hill, Remo turns to help her and she is seen extending both arms out to grab him. The camera angle changes and you now see the Major extending only one arm to grab onto Remo.


Visible crew/equipment: When Remo is hanging by one hand on the pipe at the Statue of Liberty, you can see that his hand is secured by a restraint.


Revealing mistake: Remo, clinging to a tree trunk, is shot at by Grove using a vehicle mounted machine gun. Pieces of trees are seen shot but this is only sound and special effects. There are no muzzle flashes from the machine gun, the cocking handle does not move in time with the shooting, nor does the cartridge belt move through the weapon.

Continuity mistake: When Remo, the Major, and Chiun are driving the out of control truck you can see the Major moving to the left and right before they do as Remo turns the steering wheel.


Continuity mistake: Right before Chiun throws the rings onto the bottles at the carnival, you see the carnival guy standing there with his hands in his pockets but when the camera angle changes he standing there holding a few of the rings in his hands.


Visible crew/equipment: When Chiun is running across the water towards the dock, right before he gets to the dock you can see the platform just under the surface of the water.


Continuity mistake: When Remo is sliding down the rope at the Statue Of Liberty, you can see his hands above his head and then at his chest as the camera angle changes. Happens about 3 times during the scene.


Continuity mistake: When Remo goes to the warehouse to see the secret project, you see him grab onto a cable and slide down it with the aide of a pulley but when Remo gets to the end of the wire the pulley is gone.


Continuity mistake: When Remo and the Major are walking through the woods, Remo hears something and walks around a tree to see what it is. You then see Remo being thrown from behind the tree but you can see that the person being thrown was standing on a platform that was erected behind the tree that is about 5 feet off the ground.


Continuity mistake: When Remo and the Major are in the gas chamber, you see the Major passing out and falling near the wall, but she changes positions atleast three times during the scene.


Other mistake: At the carnival, the duo is told by the carny that they get seven rings for a dollar, but the only get five.

Suggested correction: The carny never says anything about how many rings a player gets. He only tells them the way to win, by getting a ring on a bottle.

When he's leaning up against the poke he says "Here we are folks. Seven hoops for a dollar."


I stand corrected. I just rewatched the scene. He does in fact say seven for a dollar. Interestingly, it's clear he hands Chun five rings, but when the rings are shown on the bottle, SIX are shown.

Continuity mistake: When Remo runs up to the crashed truck with Chiun in it, you see the windshield from the truck resting against the door, but when the camera angle changes to a close up of Remo pulling the door away the windshield is gone.


Factual error: The fence surrounding the HARP facility that Remo and Conn break into is supposedly electrified. Not possible - it is a standard chain link fence affixed directly to aluminum posts driven into the ground. If it were electrified it would have to be insulated from the posts; the way it is shown in the film, the electricity would shunt into the ground. When the front-end loader hits it, a plume of firework-like sparks erupts from the point of impact. Also not possible - there was nothing in the bucket of the loader to detonate and the metal hitting against the electrified fence would, at most, cause some small electrical arcs.

Chiun: I do not wear glasses so that I may see. I wear glasses so that I may see... more.

Trivia: Chiun says that he is from a village called Sinanju in Korea, and that all martial arts descend from Sinanju, the perfect martial art. In the name of the village, Chiun was telling the truth; it does exist in North Korea. However, the martial art Sinanju is bogus.
