Movie Trivia/Goofs

→ View All
  • There was only one day of exterior filming done on the entire shoot. It was to get footage of Josh Lucas jogging that was eventually composited into the opening CG shot of the ship.
  • Movie Goof (plot holes): Why would both propellers (at the end of the movie) be sucking air in (or out) at the same time? Bow thrusters would create a vacuum in the chamber no matter which way they are turning, when to Starbord they create a vacuum to suck water and push it to the port side of the ship, and vice versa.
  • Movie Goof (factual errors): The Water seems to chase the fleeing passengers all the way to the bow room. However when outside the ship standing in the bow thruster the water is many meters below. The water level in the ship would be lower than the level outside. The weight of the ship would mean that if such a small volume of air remained the ship would already be under water outside. And when the trap to the bow-thruster was opened the sheer pressure of the air trying to escape would make this one large exhaust - with or without the bow-thrusters.
  • Movie Goof (factual errors): As the rogue wave gathered water, the ship would have gotten sucked towards it significantly, rather than staying in the same place until the moment it was hit.
