The .44 Smith & Wesson magnum used by Ivan Danko near the end of the film holds six shots, and Danko fires many more than this without reloading.
At the end of the movie when they crash the bus, Danko smashes the rear window with his fist. The window shatters before his fist hits the glass.
The teleprinter at the Moscow militia headquarters is seen printing a message in Russian but in the Latin alphabet. Equipment used by the Soviet government would undoubtedly allow the Cyrillic alphabet to be used.
When Danko and his partner discuss the drug problem, the translation says they are referring to Miami while they were actually referring to Harlem.
At the beginning of the film where they chase the villain he jumps down from a roof and there can be seen several dumpsters. Those were not the kind of dumpsters used in Russia. Those were of western design.
At the beginning of the movie, when Arnold jumps out of the sauna window with one of the Villains you can clearly see a stunt doubler instead of Arnold.
After the cross dressing nurse shoots the air bubble into the Russian man in the hospital, the man supposed to dead. But the next screen shot of the two you can see the dead man is moving his head side to side.
In the hotel shoot out scene - just before the cleanheads starts shooting at Arnold. The small charge designed to look like a bullet hit goes off before the actual shot is fired.
When Danko is being told to "...bring Victor home and tell no-one", the subtitle spells Victor two different ways - Victor and Viktor.
After getting shot in the hospital by the fake nurse, Danko and Ridzik are talking while Ridzik is lying on a stretcher. Ridzik asks Danko if they have a shithouse in Russia, and Danko answers, "Yes," without moving his lips.
Around 01:20:57, we can heard a shooter says "It's him", then he turns his head and we see his lips moving without sound.
Errors in geography
The movie is set in Chicago, but palm trees are visible during the street chase.
The first street scene in Chicago features an LA Metro bus and Los Angeles street signs, while the scenes at the supposedly Chicago O'Hare Airport are clearly filmed at Los Angeles International.
The dead gangsters slightly blink their eyes when their photos are taken.
At the funeral of Danko's partner, the year of death on his tomb stone says 1988. Later on, when Danko checks in at a motel, the date he writes in the book is somewhere in 1987. When Danko is handed the property release form for Rosta at the Chicago Police Department it also lists the date as 1987.
When Danko accuses Streak of lying, Ridzik says he has the right to do so in the U.S. This is incorrect. Lying to a police officer is a crime and someone doing it can be charged with obstructing a peace officer.
