Continuity mistake: Early in the movie, Mac throws the dead green berets' dog tags to Dutch. As he catches them, Dutch has his hand closed in a fist, and the dog tags are hanging to the left. But in the close-up shot where we can read the name, his fingers are more open, with the tags resting in his palm.

Continuity mistake: In the scene at the end when Arnie crawls into the booby trapped gully you can see the Predator behind him with the knives on his right arm already extended. The camera then switches to a shot of the Predator extending the knives to finish Arnie off.

Question: Why did Dillon really want Dutch and his team to go to Val Verde? He says it was to locate a helicopter that was shot down and to look for Hopper but, after the successful raid, Dillon is seen looking through some papers, so he wanted Dutch there for some other reason.

Answer: He wanted Dutch and his team to help him retrieve the intelligence documents he was rooting through. The Soviet officer shot by Dutch ("Knock knock!") was also looking at the same documents and was planning on moving them out of the country. The story goes a CIA operative was carrying intelligence and was shot down over Val Verde by the guerrillas who are aided by the Soviets. Dillon sent Jim Hopper and his Green Beret unit there to rescue his men and retrieve the intelligence but they were ambushed and killed by the Predator. Believing Hopper and his men were killed by the guerrillas, Dillon felt he had no option left but to hire the best rescue team he knew to complete the mission. Dillon knew Dutch didn't do this sort of black ops work so he lied to him and made up the story about rescuing a cabinet minister.
