Rambo

Factual error: An unexploded British 'Tallboy' bomb from World War II is found in the jungles of Burma. First, no Tallboy bomb was ever dropped in Burma. Further, the purpose of the Tallboy is to quake the earth to shake concrete buildings down, so dropping one in Burma's jungle would be pointless. Lastly, if a Tallboy had indeed been dropped, it falls at great speed and is hardened to penetrate concrete structures, embed itself below them, then detonate. It would have been underground, not tangled in branches above ground as if made of balsa wood, for Rambo to easily find.

Factual error: During the night, School Boy shoots a Barrett M82. Instead of hearing a huge blast (as in the morning scene), the shot is silent.

Mistakes

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.
