Continuity mistake: Antonio Banderas throws his guitar case across the roof, then jumps after it and opens it. From the reverse angle the fake guitar inside is still in place, we then switch to it from from the front and it's instantly raised, with the guns visible instead.

Continuity mistake: During the rooftop shootout Banderas reloads his gun (right hand one), than he takes another gun (the one in his belt) with the left hand. After a cut, Banderas reloads his right handed gun again and the left handed gun disappears.

Question: Why does Zamira (Bucho's henchwoman) have no lines of dialogue? Is she mute? Or was it done to make her character enigmatic?

Answer: Having a tough-looking, silent henchman/henchwoman is a pretty common trope in action movies. She's basically there to look tough and mysterious. I wouldn't read into it more than that, especially given how minor the character is. (Minor enough that I had to Google her, because I couldn't even remember her, and I've easily seen this movie a dozen times over the years).
