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.
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.
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.johnrosa
