Corrected entry: Everyone's reaction on Tuneman's boat to the explosion of the Eindhoven Lion doesn't follow human nature. In no camera shot does it show anyone on the boat looking back at the explosion. I would have thought something so dramatic would have at least piqued their interest.
Corrected entry: There are 2 clear references to Speed: Tune-Man, the owner of the $150,000 boat, is the same as the Jaguar owner which is destroyed by Jack (Reeves) in order to get into the bus - when Jason Patric asks him the boat, after introducing himself as police officer, you can hear Tune Man say something about the insurance. The second, near the end, while Sandra Bullock starts her driving exam, she almost hits a bus very similar to the famous 2525.
Corrected entry: Whilst the ship is slowing down, the Scottish crewman is giving a running commentary of the speed decrease. When the boat comes to a rest, he looks bewildered and says "zero". A few shots later, the same exact same scene is duplicated with the same bewildered look saying the same thing.
Corrected entry: When Annie and Alex are boarding the Sebourn Legend for the first time, they are approached by Dante, the cruise photographer. He takes a posed shot of them, but when Alex and Annie are walking away from him up the stairs, he keeps taking pictures of the backs of their heads! What kind of professional photographer would waste film on utterly useless shots?
Corrected entry: During the sequence where they are manually turning the thruster, they turn the starboard thruster; from the outside shots, the ship turns to starboard. This is incorrect, the starboard thruster creates thrust from the starboard side, turning the ship to port.
Corrected entry: When they attempt to drop the anchor it is torn off the ship, but when the ship is crashing through the port, you can see the anchor.
Corrected entry: It is extremely unlikely that the float plane that exploded would carry that much fuel to create that size explosion, also the height of the plane in relation to the ship would also minimise its effects as the further the explosion has to travel, the more it dissipates.
Corrected entry: Geiger gives the crew 15 minutes to evacuate after which he restarts the engines. When he does that, you catch at glimpse of his computer screen. On the screen it says "Course settings Eindhoven Lion". That is incorrect. The name of the ship is Seabourn Legend. Eindhoven Lion is the oil-tanker that the Seabourn legend collides with later in the movie.
Corrected entry: Alex and the photographer turn the bow thruster to force the ship to turn and avoid a collision with the Eindhoven Lion. This being the case, surely the Seabourn Legend should therefore continue in a circle and not be able to head for land.
