Continuity 

Size of footprint on Lee's chest.
Throughout the final scenes of the movie, spliced-in footage of Bruce Lee does not correspond with doubles. Facing and body orientation relative to his opponent switches from shot to shot.
When Steiner fires his pistol at Billy Lo, the smoke of the bullet impacting the tree appears on the opposite side.

When Billy ascends to the top level of the restaurant to confront Dr. Land, only to find that he has apparently slit his wrists, the boxing bag and staircase from the fight with Hakim can be seen in the spliced-in footage of Bruce Lee.

During Billy Lo's fight in the dressing room with "Killer Miller" there is wallpaper in the background of one shot even though the fight is taking place in a room with bare cement walls.

When Billy is proceeding to Hakim's level, on the bottom of the staircase, you see Chiech Yuan's body appear out of the blue. Same with when he was fighting the gold belt judo master. At the beginning of when they were fighting, there was no at the bottom but then when Billy is proceeding to the next level, it appears

At the beginning of the movie when Billy, Anne and Jim Marshall were talking, Marshall told Billy that Charlie Wang was fished out of the harbour the next day but right when Billy goes to fight Hakim, behind him you see Charlie's dead body lying there.

When Billy is thrown over the guy's shoulder, we see the same set of nunchakus from Pasqual's level. Billy threw his nunchakus down on Pasqual but on the second floor when he is fighting the judo guy, they're there again.

When Billy arrives at the restaurant (end fight) it is midnight, but when he is fighting Hakim it is suddenly daylight, seen when Billy is pushed by Hakim and makes him break a paper window.

The condition and style of Billy's running shoes changes during the final fight scenes. In some scenes they are brand new and in other scenes, they are old sneakers taped to resemble the shoes that Bruce Lee wore. A good example of this is when Billy approaches his nunchuck bag before his fight with Pasqual. You can clearly see that the his shoes are old and the black stripe pattern is actually made by strips of black electrical tape.

Just before his fight with Billy, Pasqual picks up two Filipino escrima sticks and you can clearly see that one stick is only half the length of the other stick. Moments later, the sticks Pasqual uses are equal length.

The footprint on Billy Lo's chest changes in darkness several times (considering ONLY the Bruce Lee scenes), especially during the fight with Hakim. Also at one point, the footprint is backwards for two or three quick clips. Also, when Hakim kicks Billy Lo, his toes actually do not touch Billy Lo to leave the print. Martial artists are taught to kick toes up. If slowed down,the connection can be seen where the toes never touch Billy Lo's chest.

Revealing mistakes 

In the beginning of the movie, a scene where you can see Lee's face in the mirror of his trailer. It's obviously a cardboard cutout, as the neck below it moves freely about unconnected to the head.
During the last Billy Lo/Steiner fight, Steiner tries to hit Billy with two kicks. Each time we see Billy dodging the kicks, the foot is actually Hakim's.
In the nunchaku scene when Billy and Pasqual are dueling, Billy's second nunchaku bends, revealing it to be foam rubber.
