Highlander II: The Quickening

Continuity mistake: Near the end of the movie, Katana and Blake are worrying about the possibility that MacLeod has spoken with Neyman and knows the exact coordinates of the hole in the shield. That's odd, because a few scenes before we see Katana and Blake monitoring MacLeod as he speaks with Neyman in the prison Max. There Neyman tells the coordinates. So they know he knows.

Continuity mistake: At the end of the film after Connor defeats Katana, he drops to the floor into a large puddle of water, but in the next shot from the side, he's no longer in any water.

Continuity mistake: During the big fight scene near the end, the baddie manages to drop the hero down an elevator shaft in a warehouse. The scene ends with a shot looking up the shaft at the bad guy laughing demonically, looking pretty mucky and with hair all over the place. Cut to the next scene where the bad guy appears in a room where the shield beam is generated. Now he is completely clean, has a different hairstyle, and if I remember right has a completely different costume on.

Continuity mistake: Everyone seems to enjoy swapping swords in this movie. MacCleod begins with the shortsword he takes from the porcupine headed guy, Ramirez takes a rapier from the Hamlet play, Katana has a huge broadsword. As the film progresses Ramirez suddenly acquires his original Japanese sword which MacCleod later has in spite of not pulling it from the ground where Ramirez puts it in the fan room, then MacCleod suddely goes back to having the shortsword and finally he has Ramirez's sword again, and Katana magically has the shortsword with his broadsword dissappearing completely.
