Continuity mistake: In the grand finale shootout scene, the flak guards on the truck-mounted machine gun Rambo uses are immediately covered in blood and gore from the soldiers he shoots in the truck. There is at least one shot in the midst of the massacre where the panels are squeaky clean, then re-appear blood-soiled again in the subsequent shots.

Continuity mistake: When the boat is stopped by the pirates they throw two hooks onto the boat to secure the boats. Later in the scene, when Rambo is about to leave he throws one hook off but not the other. Despite this the boat seems to no longer be attached to the pirates boat.

Continuity mistake: After Rambo eviscerates Major Tin and kicks him down the hill, in the next shot the blade of his knife is totally clean with not a smear of blood or gore on it.

Revealing mistake: In the final shootout scene, when Rambo takes over the truck mounted machine gun, he shoots the driver, whose blood splatters a lot over the metal guards on the gun. If the blood splattered that much on the guards, it should be all over the interior of the truck which is revealed to only have blood on the floor - none all over the dash or doors.

Trivia: The movie was originally titled "John Rambo", but Stallone didn't want people to think it was the last of the series (as the final "Rocky" was called "Rocky Balboa"), so he changed the name, keeping the door open for a fifth movie.
