Broken Arrow
Broken Arrow mistake picture

Visible crew/equipment: In the last fight scene with John and Christian, Christian jumps out of the train and disarms the nuke with the remote and the nuke goes through John Travolta, but in slow motion you can clearly see a cheap dummy with white shoes on when he gets hit and flies out.

Other mistake: When Christian Slater shoots 9 or 10 shots out of a 6-shooter, there is no possible way that he could have had time to reload in the time allotted.

Trivia: John Woo wanted Hale to die in the film, but the studio was against it because of Slater's popularity with younger audiences.

Question: Like the Wilhelm scream, is there a name to the scream Howie Long makes he falls? I've heard that in more than few other things.

Answer: Funnily enough, it is actually often referred to as the "Howie Scream," in reference to this film, which famously used it. It's a stock sound effect that's been in use since at least 1980. It's also referred to as "Screams 3; Man, Gut-Wrenching Scream and Fall into Distance," which was presumably the title of the track in the music library it's from.
