Corrected entry: The target that Murtaugh shoots through the "nose" already has the hole in place when he hangs it up. (It's not the design of the target, because the one that he takes down a few seconds before has no hole in that spot.) (01:03:15 - 01:04:00)
Corrected entry: On the video,when Riggs does the last target practice, he only shoots 7 shots, but when the target comes up there are two shots for the eyes, one for the nose, and five for the mouth, for a total of eight.
Corrected entry: When Riggs and Murtaugh leave the bank, Riggs stops for a hot dog. The next time you see him, he is getting into the car and the hot dog is almost not eaten at all. Before that, it is almost gone.
Corrected entry: When the guy from the bank is explaining the whole plot of the movie to Danny Glover just before Gary Busey shoots him from the helicopter, If you look out the window Mel Gibson is outside smoking looking up at them. Every time it cuts to a shot showing him he is standing in a different place or has disappeared altogether.
Corrected entry: When Mel Gibson is crying over his wife's picture, he pulls the magazine out of his pistol, ejects the round that is in it and pulls out the hollow point. He pulls back the slide on the Beretta 9mm and locks it open. He places the bullet in the breech and closes the slide. When he points the gun at himself, the hammer is not cocked to fire, although the slide was pulled back, which would have pushed the hammer down to be fired.
Corrected entry: When Mr. Joshua gives Riggs one final chance to tell what he knows, before being tortured by Endo, he says something to the effect of, "Endo here has forgotten more about torture than you or I will ever know." Okay...so, does he remember anything then? I get that at one point he knew more than they, but how much of that has he forgotten? Maybe he now knows less.rbryant73
Corrected entry: In the Director's Cut version, when we first meet Riggs, he is depressed and throws something at the TV, destroying the TV. He goes to work, and that night is shown to be watching a Warner Bros. cartoon on the TV, which shows no sign of damage.
Revealing mistake: Riggs handcuffs himself to the depressed businessman. They jump off the building but they're not handcuffed to each other anymore. They used plastic cuffs which could separate during the stunt in case anything went wrong. They break just as they jump, so they grab each other's hands to stay in contact. After they land the cuffs are attached again. (00:31:00)
