Errors - Internet Movie DatabaseEdit

Revealing mistakesEdit

  1. During the fight scene on the boat, wrinkles are clearly visible in the backdrop that is supposed to be a foggy sky. Perhaps the area is enclosed like the set used for 'The Truman Show'
  2. As Number Six assembles his compass from the radio, it can be clearly seen he is in very shallow water despite having already sailed far from the beach. Perhaps there is a plateau just under the surface in that area.
