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 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.

Continuity mistake: When breaking out of the HARP facility, Remo puts a front-end loader in drive and bails off it before it crashes through the electric fence. The loader continues driving forward into the field beyond the fence; the motor is still running and it is still in drive. When Remo runs out, the loader has backed up and is now just outside the fence.

Continuity mistake: When Remo walks across the wire, he dares the dog to do the same. When the dog does, you can tell he's walking across the top of the wall.

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.

Other mistake: As Remo is standing on top of the car Chiun is in, as the camera is looking at them from the back, just before Remo turns around to duck another car, there is a quick glimpse of another person outside the car looking at Chiun, and then he ducks out of camera range.

Continuity mistake: As Remo hangs from the bottom or the car Chiun is in, in the long shot, Remo starts to climb up. A second later, he's hanging under, and starts to climb again.

Continuity mistake: When Remo walks away from the wrecked jeep, the ground is fairly undisturbed. When he tosses the burning branch, there is now a obvious ditch filled with fuel that leads to the jeep.

Add time

Revealing mistake: Remo picks a dry branch off a bush and rubs it to start a fire. When the angle changes, the branch has been dipped in a burnable liquid and easily lights up.

Continuity mistake: When Remo pokes out Stone's eyes, there's blood on his hand. A second later, it's clean.

Audio problem: After Chiun gets all of the rings on the bottles, you can see that they have all settled, yet you keep hearing the sound of them still settling through the rest of the scene.

Continuity mistake: As Remo is running on the beach, Chiun says "float", and Remo comes off the ground, and is running in air. After Mac comes up, the camera looks at Remo and his feet are back on the ground, kicking up dirt, rather than in air.

Factual error: About an hour into the movie, while Remo is choking the guy in the car,a meter maid comes up and threatens to hit him with her nightstick. Meter maids in NYC don't carry nightsticks or any other weapons. They barely want them to carry pens. Also, she's repeatedly called officer, they aren't officers either.

Continuity mistake: When Remo swings out on the pipe at the Statue Of Liberty, in the close-ups, his fingers are in the top of the pipe holding on. In the far away shots, he is holding on around the coupling about 1/2 foot down from the top of the pipe.
