Other mistake: In the briefing scene just after the main credits, Braithwaite is showing Lee a film of Han and his allies. What we are seeing is footage spliced into the film, as the shadows of the 16 millimetre projector's reels on Bruce Lee's face and the wall shows empty reels with no film in them at all.
Revealing mistake: During the fight scene between Han and Bruce Lee toward the end of the movie, Bruce Lee knocks Han to the ground. The shot changes to show a frontal view of Bruce as he lands a crushing kick on Han. It looks like Han was replaced with a dummy for this shot, as Bruce's kick seems to just send Han across the room. As I reviewed the scene, I could see that Han was actually a dummy of some sort .
Continuity mistake: During the fight scene in the mirror room, Lee starts to punch and kick the mirrors. During several shots, Lee is wearing shoes that fully cover the top of his foot. In others, he is wearing a pair of shoes that have a V cut down the top of his foot which you can clearly see with his white socks.
Revealing mistake: In Han's first scene, when he enters the banquet hall to welcome fighters he holds both arms out and the fingers on his solid metal hand are spread. Later on after beating Williams to death he takes off his glove to reveal his metal hand. Look at the glove before he does this; he moves his fingers.
Continuity mistake: Someone got a little makeup happy. In Han's office, Williams beats up a few guards and then Han takes things into his own hands (or hand as it turns out.) As they fight, there is a shot of Williams head-on just before Han hits his birdcage. Williams has a bruise under his eye. But why? Han hasn't hit him yet and neither did any of the guards. Nor was he hit in the face during his match with Parsons earlier in the film. I suppose it could be a shadow but it doesn't look like it.
Continuity mistake: When Bruce has the battle underground he has black socks on, but when he is captured and they show him being untied outside he has white socks on.
Continuity mistake: When they're fighting in the mirror place, Bruce gets slashed on the face. The space between the cuts is narrower than the cuts he gets from the same claw when he gets slashed on the belly.
Continuity mistake: During the fight scene near the end of the film between Han's white clad henchmen and the black dressed good guys, there is a shot of a guy spin kicking another that is shown 3 times. Many other shots are shown more than once, from close up or a slightly different angle.
Continuity mistake: During the flashback with Su Lin: Just after she starts running away from her attackers she trips and falls on a patch of dirt. Everything around is concrete and that patch is the only dirt visible. Isn't it lucky she had something soft to land on?
Revealing mistake: In the dungeon fight, Lee knocks one of Han's henchmen onto the bars of the cell and the occupants grab him. It can be seen that the "metal" of the cell door is bending.
Revealing mistake: When Han's daughters/bodyguards are throwing daggers at the apples in the banquet room, one girl just blows the dagger out of her palm and catches the apple in mid air impressively. However a keen eye can see the wire attached to the dagger that pulls it from her hand (slow-mo is not necessary).Jack Vaughan
Visible crew/equipment: The head of a crewmember is visible during the mirror room fight. During the part where Lee is slowly moving across a mirror (just before he turns down the corridor and Han comes up behind and slashes his back), look down the corridor where Bruce is about to turn down and you should see it. Also after Han slashes his back Lee turns around and goes back down the corridor and you can see this crewmember again but more.Jack Vaughan
Continuity mistake: After Bruce has scared the radio controllers from their booth with the cobra we see him calmly resting his palm on his cheek. Cut to another shot of the radio guys splitting and his palm is more at his temple. The shot goes back to him and it's on his cheek again.
Factual error: During the flashback explaining what happened to Su Lin she has an ugly bruise on her face less than a minute after being hit. Bruises usually take at least a few hours to develop like that.
Revealing mistake: When Lee's sister is seen running from the men pursuing her, she falls down and you can see the stunt mat she falls on. It looks like the makers tried to cover it up with some dirt but if you look at the lower left corner you can see the green fabric of the mattress where they missed a spot.Jack Vaughan
Audio problem: You hear a clunking of metal when Hanh hits Williams, especially when Williams throws the side kick. Clunking of metal can only be heard when metals clash. Even when metal hits rock, a different sound is made. So when flesh or bone clashes with metal, this sound cannot be made.woweeee
Visible crew/equipment: Near the end of the movie, Bruce Lee knocks Han to the ground and then the shot changes to show a frontal view of Bruce. He then lands a kick to Han's head that sends Han flying across the room. As Bruce moves towards the camera you can see a pointy object on the left side of the screen that a crew member must be holding, because in the next shot there is no pointy black thing in Bruce Lee's path.

Continuity mistake: In the fight with O'Hara, Lee sidekicks O'Hara and sends him flying over backwards into the crowd. The brown bottle is left standing upright. When they cut back to O'Hara now reaching for the bottle, suddenly it's on it's side spilling the contents. (01:20:00)
Factual error: When Han is fighting Williams, Williams throws a side kick to Han. Then he lifts up his hand to block - supposedly a metal hand - but his hand does not move one bit. It is not possible, due to that kind of force, for a hand to not move. Even if a hand is metal, the elbow will pivot. As well as the fact that after the kick, you see Williams' face is in pain. This is not possible as he is wearing soled shoes and kicking side on.woweeee
