Repo Man picture

Visible crew/equipment: There is a scene in this movie where Emilio Estevez and his partner are sitting in a car outside a shop. The camera tracks in on them. The problem is the crew havent bothered to hide the camera track running from the bottom of the frame up under the car. There is a badly placed black mat that covers a bit of it but this just draws your attention to it.

Top Secret! pictureTop Secret! mistake picture

Visible crew/equipment: In the "Straighten the Rug" dance scene, when Nick runs up the wall and does a backflip, it is clear that he is being held up by wires. The filmmakers did a good job rotoscoping the wires out against the wall, but when his legs pass behind the wires and harness, they have not been taken out at all and are visible. (Freeze-frame when he is completely upside down for the best view.). (01:07:10)
