Speed 2: Cruise Control

Audio problem: When Jason Patric is pursuing Willem Dafoe and firing a shotgun, the gun is a semi-automatic (self-loading) model. However, the sound mix includes the very distinctive noise of a pump-action shotgun being cycled manually before each shot.

Audio problem: When Alex orders that the second anchor be dropped, the 1st officer says "I'm telling you we're still too fast." However, his mouth doesn't move at all. (01:33:30)

Factual error: In one scene they attempt to divert the ship by manually activating the ship's bowthruster. A thruster is a propeller in a transverse direction. This allows the ship to turn more efficiently when docking. However the thruster loses any efficiency above approximately 5 knots. In the film they use it at 17 knots. Secondly, a thruster is powered by an electric motor of at least 500 kW, yet they manage to turn it by hand. That handle does not exist in real life, and no one would be able to turn it anyway.
