Continuity mistake: In the scene where Cobra pulls his gun out and sets it on the table, he opens the pizza box, eats a piece, then pulls his gun out again to clean it.

Visible crew/equipment: In the scene where Cobretti is talking with the Hispanic guy for the first time (after parking his car) he rips off his shirt revealing a black wire attached to his chest using duct tape. (00:13:30)

Trivia: Stallone had 20 minutes of the movie cut so theaters could add an extra showing, hoping the movie would beat Top Gun. It didn't happen.

Trivia: Cobra's car was actually owned by Stallone and the studio built doubles for the stunts.

Trivia: Brian Thompson, who played the Night Slasher, admitted in a recent interview that during filming, he had no idea what his character was about or why he and his gang were randomly killing people. When he asked Stallone who wrote the script, he couldn't even give him an answer. (Director George Pan Cosmatos made no effort to help.) Brian was eventually forced to come up with his own explanation to assist his performance. He wrote a two-page essay and just worked from that.
