Oooopsy...

"Er, someone wasn't on top of their game that day..."
See the goofs, blunders and plain ole mistakes in the 1986 Drama movie starring Charlie Sheen, Willem Dafoe, Forest Whitaker More Cast


We believe the following are all legit mistakes. If we've bungled it, or you have additional info, please update us.

In the scene where Barnes is hunting Linus, he is carrying an M16 rifle that has M16 A2 handguards on it. Those hand guards were not available to the military until the 80's. This movie is set in 1967.

UPDATE: Joshua said that it was in fact a CAR15 from Colt. Can anyone confirm?

When Barnes is holding the little girl in the village (before the fight with Elias) one of the soldiers falls to the floor but the scene is cut right away.

Bogus Blunders

Sometimes an apparent goof is not a real mistake




But, nothing bogus that we know yet for "Platoon".
