Scarface

Continuity mistake: Angel is killed in the tub in the motel, but his body is not in there when shots of the tub are seen. Also, if the body were still in there, Tony and the other man would not be able to stand or move back and forth as easily as they did as they would be slipping and stepping on body parts.

Continuity mistake: When Tony's car returns after killing Manny, it enters the compound gate. Men are climbing the wall from the inside, leaving to the outside wall. Either the car is going the wrong way, or the assassins are. The gate opens away with the security camera facing the gate. So it appears Tony is leaving while men are entering. Maybe this scene was meant for when Tony left to find his sister? But it happens after. (02:29:08)

Continuity mistake: During the shot of Freedom Town there is a resident in a distinctive brown patterned shirt that keeps passing by in the background of the shot with Tony. When Rebinga enters the camp the same person in the brown shirt is entering the camp with Rebinga, only with a pronounced limp.

Continuity mistake: Manny is shot in the drug dealer's apartment at the beginning of the movie. He says the bullet went in and out. However, when he's in the bed with his girlfriend and his shirt is off, there is no bullet wound on his arm, or anywhere on his chest or torso.

Continuity mistake: As Tony chases Hector out of the hotel, a white handbag can be seen behind them on the pavement. Afterwards, once Tony shoots Hector, the bag is gone.

Continuity mistake: When Tony is in the refugee camp and he stabs the communist at the doorway, the camera focuses on the Cuban's face where he is standing upright staring straight ahead. The camera then changes to a rear view and the Cuban is suddenly in a hunched over position making for an awkward transition. (00:11:00)

Continuity mistake: Tony and Omar Suarez go down to Bolivia to meet with Mr. Sosa. After Omar has an accident from the chopper,the binoculars are put down on the table on end. Next shot, they lay flat. Next shot, on end again. And so on through out the scene. (01:07:20)

Trivia: In the final scene when Tony's house is being raided, there is a moment where he attempts to grab a gun and then lets go immediately. What happened was that the gun was so hot, it actually burnt Al Pacino's (Tony) hand and he was unable to perform for about a week or two. That allowed director Brian DePalma to shoot the scenes of the shooters moving throughout the house.

Question: Can anyone please tell me what Tony says to Rebenga as he is stabbing him in the prison camp? It sort of sounds like, "I'm gonna pay you f***." But that doesn't make sense.

Answer: He said, "From a friend you fu**ed."
