Revealing mistake: In the scene where the medic gets shot, watch the shot where Upham brings the bags up to the injured medic. The next shot there is some fog which then reveals the injured medic. In this shot, watch carefully as the cast rips away the medic's shirt. If you look near the neck, you can see the fake stomach vest he is wearing for a split second - when the actor realizes he ripped too far up, he quickly covers it back up. (01:28:43)Kelsey H.
Revealing mistake: In the scene where Captain Love and Antonio Banderas (as Zorro) meet in the hallway of the hacienda, two guards rush down the hallway and drop their rifles and swords. Zorro asks them to bend over and then proceed to kick/nudge them out the window. If you watch carefully, you'll notice that the guard on the right (furthest from Zorro) reacts to the kick too early.

Revealing mistake: In the New York meteor shower scene, most of the cars blow up without having been hit at all.
Revealing mistake: When Montoya uses a spear to toss the vampire woman from the prison door into the sunlit street, it is an obvious dummy that has been used. First you see the woman stumble out, and the first flames shoot out of her, then the angle changes to a close-up of her as she is engulfed in fire. In the close-up, she has become bigger and rounder, and does not move.Twotall
Revealing mistake: In the beginning scene on the Bak'u planet the stone bridge bends under the weight of the child. (00:04:15)
Revealing mistake: Near the end of the film, after the shootout, there's a shot with the camera zooming in on a newspaper at Will Smith's front door. If you pause it right once the headline fills the top of the screen, you'll notice all the paragraphs are just repeated, word for word. Additionally the word "received" is misspelled.
Revealing mistake: When they are climbing up from the subway tunnel into Madison Square Garden, there are lots of half-dead fish scattered around from when Godzilla was feeding. Right before they enter the arena, in the overhead shot looking down on the actors, there is a wiggling fish in the lower left portion of the screen. If you look closely, you can see a string attached to the fish. A crew member is obviously tugging on it from below, to make the fish move.
Revealing mistake: In the climax scene, Joe is climbing up the Ferris Wheel. He is huge, and weighs a ton, but his strong hands do not break a single lightbulb on the framework of the wheel.
Revealing mistake: When Alain is holding Guido's dead body and telling Steinkampf that he "died as a Legionnaire", you can see Guido swallow if you look at his throat.
Revealing mistake: When Jackie falls from the helicopter, in the close-up of him falling towards the trees, you can see a wire coming from Jackie's' left; using slo-mo helps. (The use of slow motion is permitted if things such as crew or equipment are visible.)
Revealing mistake: When one of the bad guys is being dragged around by the monsters and thrown against pipes and walls and such, in wide shots you can see there is no monster really pulling him, and from the stiffness and position of his body, he is likely on some sort of device to swing him around.
