The Expendables

Revealing mistake: Towards the end of the movie, when Steve Austin is on fire during the fight, you can see it is a stunt man wearing a burn suit for a split second.

Continuity mistake: After the plane is docked Stallone and Statham enter the customs agency. Statham is wearing a camera on his neck with a small lens, he even shows it to the customs agent. After leaving the customs they walk across a square. The camera now has a big zoom lens attached to it. Statham is not wearing a lens bag. Where did he get that lens from? Also strange is that the lens is set in manual focus instead of automatic. Yet the picture stays focused even zooming in. This is not possible without looking at the screen. Plus the camera is turned off in the close up shot, with the image on the LCD composited in. (00:28:15 - 00:30:45)

Whitehouse

Visible crew/equipment: When Jet Li and Sylvester Stallone are in the pick up truck just before the chase, the close up of them shows the reflection of the camera in the rear window. It is seen focusing and the lens rotating. (00:59:35)
