Deliberate mistake: During Alejandro and Elena's duel, he slashes her skirt and reveals her bare leg. When he slashes off her whole gown, she's somehow wearing leggings. Obviously so Catherine Zeta-Jones would not be naked.
The Mask of Zorro (1998)
1 deliberate mistake
Directed by: Martin Campbell
Starring: Anthony Hopkins, Antonio Banderas, Catherine Zeta-Jones
Revealing mistake: In the scene where Captain Love and Antonio Banderas (as Zorro) meet in the hallway of the hacienda, two guards rush down the hallway and drop their rifles and swords. Zorro asks them to bend over and then proceed to kick/nudge them out the window. If you watch carefully, you'll notice that the guard on the right (furthest from Zorro) reacts to the kick too early. (01:33:30)
[Alejandro draws his sword.]
Don Diego de la Vega: Do you know how to use that thing?
Alejandro: Yes. The pointy end goes into the other man.
Trivia: Catherine Zeta Jones, after her fight with Zorro, her dress rips off. She turns around to grab the hat and you can see her nipple for one frame.

Answer: Zorro was the one person he feared, and wanted to make sure that he was dead or broken and hadn't escaped during his exile.
