Red Planet

Continuity mistake: In the earlier scenes on the planet's surface when the men still have their helmets on, it appears that the cameramen were also wearing space suits so that they would appear as crewmen on the visor reflections. Still too many people visible though.

Continuity mistake: In every view of the front of Mars 1, you can clearly see the landing pod still attached, even when it's on Mars' surface.

8

Continuity mistake: 15 minutes into the movie, as the crew sits at a table to discuss frogs and the environment, there is a white bottle cap with a red dot on it in front of Carrie-Ann Moss. During the discussion the cap keeps changing right side up and upside down as the cameras change views.

3

Continuity mistake: If you look at the back of Mars I, the "wings" that come out at the back change position. In one shot, they are in a typical five point star, then in another shot, they are in a six point star configuration with the one to the bottom missing.

Character mistake: When the biologist guy talks about writing code for DNA he names the four codes as A, G, T, P, when they are actually A, G, T, C.

Question: In the movie, AMEE is shown to have various settings, such as 'Navigaton' and 'Military'. It is also stated that AMEE is on loan from the marines. My question is, before giving her to the crew of Mars-1, why didn't the marines remove the the military part of her programming? What possible use could it have been to the crew?

Chosen answer: It was disabled. The part of her program that was in effect was merely the survival instinct, given to it so it could protect itself.
