Continuity mistake: When Spartan and Huxley arrive at the cryogenics place to battle Phoenix and what remains of his gang, Phoenix sees them on the monitor walking into the building and you see Spartan on the left and Huxley on the right.

Factual error: While in the convenience store, watch the arcade screen the punks are playing, they are getting very excited about the game, however anyone who has played StreetFighter 2 will notice that they are merely looking at the demo version and even the words "insert coins" are displayed on the screen. Still, if it makes them happy...
Continuity mistake: In the scene where Beldar has finished giving Gladys a driving lesson and they are sitting in the car, you can see that he has nothing on his lips. After Gladys kisses Beldar, you can see red lipstick. As the shots go from Beldar to Gladys and back, you can see the lipstick disappear and re-appear.
Plot hole: A nuclear armed stealth fighter is accidentally sent back in time to 1940's Nazi Germany. After the Nazis capture it, two days later they drop a nuclear bomb on the United States. There are several basic problems here. Firstly, if the Nazis captured advanced technology, wouldn't they spend more time taking the plane apart and interrogating the captured pilot? How on earth did they manage to train a pilot to fly the stealth in such a short length of time? And how did the stealth fighter manage to reach the U.S. from Germany when in-flight refuelling was unknown then?
Continuity mistake: In the scene where Gard telepathically fights an alien, you see his nose bleeding. Then the alien explodes, and in the next shot of Gard's face, the blood under his nose has vanished, only to return in the next shot of his face.
Revealing mistake: In the scene where Rick returns from the lab with the macaroons, it is obvious that the worm man is only in half of his costume. He's wearing black pants and shoes and sitting on a stool.
