Armageddon (1998)

Continuity mistake: After Harry catches AJ in bed with Grace, AJ runs out of the room. Cut to the next camera angle taken from outside as AJ leaves - and he has a pair of boots tied together around his neck. They were not there in the previous shot. (00:13:00)

Armageddon (1998)

Continuity mistake: When AJ bumps into Bear his shirt is very dirty on his right side, but as he runs up the stairs it is much cleaner and has a sweat mark around the neck line. Next shot on the tower and the sweat is not in the same pattern. After he slides down the cable the dirt is in a different pattern again. (00:14:10 - 00:15:00)

Armageddon (1998)

Armageddon mistake picture

Continuity mistake: During the scene where AJ is playing with cookies on Grace's stomach on the last night before the launch, the car behind them alternately appears and disappears as well as moves around. Best example - wide shot shows them well behind the car, then in a shot of Grace her head's right by the tyre. (00:51:00)

Armageddon (1998)

Factual error: After the shuttles drop their boosters and again after they fire their retros they bank and turn in space like fighters do in the atmosphere. Spacecraft don't move that way. They don't corner like a racing car. (01:08:00)

Tango & Cash (1989)

Revealing mistake: When Stallone pulls over the cocaine tanker, his first shot at the truck is accurate at about 300 yards with a two inch barrel revolver. Amazing. (00:05:00)

Tango & Cash (1989)

Continuity mistake: When we first see Jack Palance, his arm is resting on the very darkly tinted glass of an open car window. In the next shot the window is closed and all the glass is cloudy so that you can't see through it and it is much lighter. (00:06:00)

Tango & Cash (1989)

Continuity mistake: Cash spins out the truck of the bad guy and it stops all forward momentum, but in the next shot it is racing at full speed. The truck then takes out many overhead fluorescent lights. Why has no other vehicle ever hit those lights? Then the truck partially knocks down 7 lights in a row, leaving them hanging vertically. They were damaged enough to knock them off the ceiling - but they are all undamaged enough to still be operating: keep in mind that these are fragile fluorescent lights. But no damage is done to the floodlights on the roof of the truck. (00:08:00)

Tango & Cash (1989)

Revealing mistake: When Cash's stuntman jumps out the window after the bad guy, his feet move out in front of him so that he will land on his back (on an airbag) - cut to next shot and his feet are magically underneath him as he lands and rolls. As (Cash) runs around the street corner it is obviously a stuntman. When Cash runs down the narrow alley he is not wearing a bulletproof vest, but in a following scene he takes one off. (00:07:05)

Tango & Cash (1989)

Continuity mistake: Tango is searching a building and pulls out a 2 inch barrel little 38 revolver, but when all the cops arrive he only puts down his 45 automatic. (00:19:00 - 00:23:00)

Tango & Cash (1989)

Audio problem: When Tango and Cash first meet the Assistant Warden, somebody dubs over his voice and the words don't match his movement - and it is very obvious that it is not his voice. (00:45:00)

Tango & Cash (1989)

Factual error: It was so nice of the prison to give Tango and Cash the belts (with brass buckles) that they used to escape. All prisons give their inmates belts, don't they? (00:55:00)

Tango & Cash (1989)

Revealing mistake: When Tango and Cash hold a bad guy upside down off a roof, Tango has his arms straight out in front of him, elbows locked, parallel to the ground. This would require incredible strength. In the next shot he holds the bad guy properly, held close to his own body with his elbows bent - but Tango appears to be exerting no effort in order to lift the guy at the beginning of this new shot. We can also see the outline of a harness system to hold the bad guy up under the black silk shirt of the bad guy. (01:17:50)
