Continuity mistake: When Barb is saving the girl at the beginning she has to break a window so she throws a chair through it. Then she takes out a grappling hook and clears the extra glass but in the next shot the grappling hook is gone, but returns in the following shot.

Continuity mistake: When Barb goes to see Big Fatso with the lenses, she's got three ammo belts over her shoulders. The one over her right shoulder is under the two that are over her left shoulder meaning that she'd have to take off the two that are over her left shoulder before being able to take off the one that's over her right shoulder. Then Willis arrives with the Congressionals and he tells her to drop her weapons. When he tells her this, the ammo belts have switched places. The one that was over her right shoulder which used to be under the other two ammo belts is now over the other two ammo belts. Then in the next shot, as she's dropping her weapons, the ammo belts return to where they originally were.
