Audio/visual unsynchronised 

In the final fight scene between Louis and Silverio, Louis' students are clapping and starting up the "Paranaue" chant when he is almost defeated. In several shots after it starts, the students are seen in the background among the fight circle, not clapping or chanting at all, yet it can still be heard.

After Louis damages the car shop, he is chased throughout the neighborhood by the Brazilians and the Jamaicans. He is eventually cornered on someone's property and hiding in the midst of hang-drying laundry. One thug closing in on Louis, can be seen flipping a switchblade and saying something in Poturguese. When the camera shows his face, it's clear that the actor's mouth is not moving even those words are still being spoken.

During the fight in the chop-shop the sound FX that accompany Louis's actions with the long pipe (spinning and striking) are delayed by approx 1/2-3/4 of a second.

In the chop shop scene, when Louis and one of the bad guys are fighting with metal poles, the poles strike each other and then the sound follows a split second behind.

Character error 

Throughout the movie, Louis Stevens performs the capoeira "ginga" incorrectly: he keeps his arms low, never bringing them up fully to protect his face.

Donovan says he ran Louis' cassette tape through a midi setup. A cassette tape is an isolated prerecorded audio track which cannot be modified through a midi setup, not the way Donovan is describing.

Much of the action takes place at Lincoln High School, but the logo on the basketball court (seen at graduation) is a large "M".
