After Raizo kills the ninja in Mikas apartment, his hair continually changes between shots after he takes his hood / mask off. Across his face, off his face, back across and so on.
The Warner Bros, Legendary Pictures, Dark Castle and Silver Pictures logos appear from and disappear into darkness, similar to a ninja's shadow-blending ability. They are also completely metallic, with a few streaks of blood.
