Towards the end of the second round, there is one sequence where Tong Po punches Kurt in the stomach 4 times, punches him in the face 3 times, punches him in the face 13 times rapidly, punches him in the stomach 9 times rapidly, and then does this double-fist type of move on his face. Tong Po's hands are covered in broken glass. In all probability, Kurt's face and stomach would resemble raw hamburger meat at this point, but he only has one major cut on his face and one on his stomach, both of which occurred earlier in the fight.

In Kurt's training scene with Xian where he continually kicks the tree, his shin is a bloody mess and he can't walk afterwards. In subsequent training scenes, including the very next scene in the pool, there is not even a scratch on his shin.

When Kurt gets drunk at the bar with Xien and starts fighting, one of the men breaks a drinking glass in half over the counter and is holding a part of the now broken glass. The camera shows Kurt, then goes back to the man and he doesn't have the glass in his hand. Then he gets a roundhouse kick to the face.

In the bar fight, when Kurt gets drunk, he returns to his table and pushes off the glasses, all except one. In the next scene, the remaining glass is not the anymore.

During the final fight, Kurt has his wrappings cut from hands. Almost immediately, there's a shot of Tong Po, with Kurt's hand in the foreground. The just-removed wrappings can just be seen at the bottom edge of the screen.

When Kurt's brother is being rescued, his hands are tied behind his back and tries to fight off the attackers. Again, although being paralyzed, he manages to step with his left leg twice while sitting in the chair before the scene is over.

Taylor pumps the action of the M203 grenade launcher attached to his M16 prior to firing it, however, this would have ejected the grenade and rendered it useless.
