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.

Trivia

In the scene where Kamil the dog attacks the drunken guy at the crotch, no protection was used in order to make the scene as real as possible, but the dog had been specially trained for weeks beforehand to bite the area, but to not clamp down or force itself down. In the first take of the scene, where Barb Wire makes Kamil sit down, the guy used timed it badly, and forgot to bend down as the dog did. As you can imagine, this was painful.
