Barb Wire

Continuity mistake: After finding Krebs, Barb handcuffs him, and he always remains cuffed. But after Barb shoots one bodyguard, and he falls out of the window, we see a shot of Krebs looking startled, and his hands are at either side of his legs - he is now uncuffed, although Barb never uncuffed him.

Continuity mistake: The order of the plugs on the cups of the clamped-on, electro-shock bra device the Woman in Torture Room is wearing change locations in different shots.

Continuity mistake: When Barb fights Kreb's bodyguards, one throws a chair at Barb, which misses, and hits a shelf. The shelf falls down onto a trolley-table, which is to the left of the shelf. In the next shot the trolley-table in to the right of the shelf. One shot is probably flipped.

Continuity mistake: When Barb goes to see Big Fatso with the lenses, she's got three ammo belts over her shoulders. The one over her right shoulder is under the two that are over her left shoulder meaning that she'd have to take off the two that are over her left shoulder before being able to take off the one that's over her right shoulder. Then Willis arrives with the Congressionals and he tells her to drop her weapons. When he tells her this, the ammo belts have switched places. The one that was over her right shoulder which used to be under the other two ammo belts is now over the other two ammo belts. Then in the next shot, as she's dropping her weapons, the ammo belts return to where they originally were.
