Godzilla

New this month Factual error: San Francisco Bay's deepest spot is 360 feet deep and that is directly under the Golden Gate bridge. Godzilla is only 355 feet. His head would be under water when he stood up in next to the bridge. Also the bay is fairly shallow everywhere else - most parts only reach 45 to 50 feet deep. His dorsal fins alone at 34 to 37 feet tall. So there is no way he swam all the way up to the bridge and then stood up in the water with it only being below his belly. He also couldn't have displaced that much water for it to cover him.

Factual error: In the cardiac resuscitation scene with Brian Cranston, someone says "he's in atrial fibrillation... Give him 1 milligram of epinephrine." Wrong drug, in fact one that would very likely kill him immediately (maybe that's why he didn't make it!).

Factual error: Due to the specific type of suspension bridge it is, the road deck of the Golden Gate Bridge would have collapsed entirely after Godzilla severed the bridge's main cables, instead of remaining level as seen in the film.

Factual error: When Ford and his dad are in the Blackhawk/Seahawk, they are talking at just above a whisper. There is no way to "whisper" in a black/seahawk.

Factual error: During Ford's rescue from the boat Search and Rescue is able to find him, hoist him, and vacate the area within the 5min left on the nuke. Having done this in real life it takes a tad longer.

Factual error: In the ending credits, the USS Ronald Reagan is listed with the hull number CVN-70. Its actual hull number is CVN-76.

Factual error: When the nuclear bomb goes off, the main character is on the rescue helicopter in clear view of the blast. They are close enough to the blast, with the view they showed, that the helicopter would have been blown out of the sky.

Factual error: In the scene where the SEALs perform a HALO jump from what appears to be 27,000+ to 30K feet, (based on their average on-screen time in freefall), they are not wearing balaclavas over their heads, thus exposing their foreheads and necks to the sub-zero temperatures at that approximate altitude, added to the significant wind-chill effect of 110 to 127 MPH in flared freefall at the thin atmosphere of those heights. Frosbite would have been almost instantaneous.

Factual error: When the 6 service members are carrying the warhead to the boat, they hold it with ease. In reality an actual warhead weighs more than 2,400lbs, so that mean they would each be carrying more than 400lbs each with no apparent effort.

Factual error: A United States aircraft carrier with the name U.S.S. Saratoga is shown onscreen. This is a real carrier (CV-60), but the number painted on the carrier's island is 88.

Mistakes

When Juliette Binoche is running for her life in the tunnel near the beginning of the movie, when the running starts you can see all men run pass Juliette and then she's the last runner. There's even a shot when she's looking back at the leaking water and is last, with no-one behind her. A second later she's in the front of the running group.
