Suggested correction: It's possible that Nando continued shaving (offscreen) while they were living at the plane, but gave it up (or left his razor behind) during the trek out of the mountains. In real life, some of the survivors did shave while in the mountains.

The Assassin picture

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Maggie goes to the restaurant with Bob, he offers her the case where the weapon is. Bob says, 'It's loaded'.

Maggie closes the case and says, 'I don't understand.' After Bob explains what she is to do, then leaves, Maggie opens the case again and suddenly there's a clip in the weapon (loaded) and another one beside it. The weapon was not loaded when she looked the first time.

Red Rock West picture

Continuity mistake: In the second to last scene of the film, Michael Williams jumps onto a very long train pulled by southern Pacific Railway locomotives. In the last scene a pan shows a train rolling into the distance some hours later (the sun has come up) and the train is now very short and pulled by a Montana Rail-link locomotive. Either the train has seriously changed since we last saw our hero, or the director just took a pan of any old train in a setting he liked.
