Audio problem: When Maximus is eating with Juba and Haken, just before he fights Tigris of Gaul, listen to the background noise very closely as the men talk. There's lots of chatter and stray noises, but amid the sounds you can hear someone yelling urgently: "Warren, Warren... Warren, ...radio." This may be the sounds of a crew member telling another regarding a radio. (01:36:30)
Audio problem: During the flashback when Torrence is at the summer camp, she purposely drops the spirit stick on the ground as a dare. When it hits it makes the sound of wood hitting concrete, but it's really a soft object hitting carpet. [The spirit stick is not soft, and the floor at camp is probably little more than thin carpet over concrete. The first spirit stick shown is made of wood and the second one (that Missy gets) is made of plastic.] [You can see the stick bend and buckle. Obvious audio over-dubbing to highlight the moment.]Timothy Conard
Audio problem: In the scene where Erin is climbing down into the well at the plant, and then climbs out and runs away from the workers, she runs to her car, gets in and starts it. The sound of her starting the car is that of her cranking it over once, then trying again. The second time she cranks it over, her hand isn't on the key, its going down to the shifter.
Audio problem: When Marcus attacks Simon at the loading dock, Simon attempts to take out his weapon, but Marcus takes the firearm from him before Simon can assemble it. He takes the barrel in one hand and the rest of the weapon in his other hand, but one moment later, he's shown only holding the barrel as he removes the silver nails, meaning he must have dropped or thrown away the other part. However, we never hear any sound of the other part hitting the asphalt, even though Simon picks it up from the ground later during the fight. (00:57:40)Kylantha
Audio problem: At the end of the movie when they sing "you are my sunshine" they movie into a L.S. and you can see that the words aren't synched in to their lips. (01:31:30)
Audio problem: In the scene where Chuck is throwing coconuts at the rock, the sound of the coconut hitting the rock comes after the coconut actually hits it.
Audio problem: At the end of the movie, the jet plane takes off and flies overhead, but the sound is that of a propeller-driven plane, not a jet-engined plane.
