Predators picture

Revealing mistake: When Cuchillo is about to be shot by Isabelle, you can see the bullet-hole-effect go off too early, due to bad editing. It's exactly in between that scene, when both actors are from the side, and as the scene changes to where Isabelle is seen from the front. (00:34:25)

Revealing mistake: Horvath is trapped in the bathroom mirror, and after knocking on the mirror from the inside, a boy comes over. You can see that the shadow from the boy's shoulder is falling on Horvath, and when he turns and falls over, if you watch closely, you can see that the boy bumps into Horvath's arm. This is because the boy actor is standing in front of Horvath's actor to achieve the mirror effect.

Kick-Ass picture

Revealing mistake: Throughout the movie, people getting shot almost always don't have the shot angles line up with how they appear. This is especially obvious in the end scene with Hit Girl shooting the gangsters: she might shoot someone at an angle from the side, but the shot appears to have come from directly behind the person.

Iron Man 2 picture

Revealing mistake: There are obvious differences in the appearance of the "Ironman" and "War Machine" suits throughout the movie, as pertains to them showing a digitally-rendered suit vs an actual physical suit that the actor/stuntmen wear. Whenever a real suit is shown on an actor, it is quite bulky, most noticeably around the abdomen/stomach areas, and the size of the head-piece.The digital versions are much slimmer in the abdomen areas and the headpieces are much smaller and more compact.
