Corrected entry: Monique has the arm of her jacket cut by a helicopter blade, yet this is not visible throughout the rest of the movie.
Corrected entry: When Peter cuts his father's rope, we see him hit the ground. When his body lands, it is quite intact. From falling from such a great distance, his body would have burst apart like a wet cement bag upon impact.
Corrected entry: Through the entire movie all the old man wears is the head band and usually it didn't even cover his ears. He must have been a tough guy. And what was with the little scarves that Chris O'Donnell and his sister wear around their necks? What was the purpose of those things? I thought to cover their faces in extreme weather, but they had ski masks for that.
Corrected entry: I'm no explosives expert, but when Chris O'Donnell fills the hole with nitro, he does it in the most dangerous way possible, pouring a stream of it into the centre of the pool from a distance of 1-2 feet up. You should bring the can as close to the target as possible, maybe pouring it down the side of the sloped hole to minimise splashing and agitating the liquid. Or at least tell your girlfriend to not stand right beside you when you do it...
Corrected entry: In the scene where Bill Paxton and the female climber are raising the bag of blood to act as a signal/marker to the rescuers, you can see that the plastic baggie is about half full (and even starts to leak before they get to the top). However, when the bag is shot through the snow and busts, the resulting blood splash makes it seem as though they slaughtered a pig down there and used a couple of gallons of blood instead of a half-filled baggie.
Corrected entry: Monique loses her pack as she's trying to rescue Cyril. Yet she doesn't seem to have ANY problems with her equipment, for she later has got a tent, a sleeping bag, etc. I don't think that the other ones had an extra tent to spare, because their packs were already heavy enough.
Corrected entry: In the middle of the film when we see Cyril throw down a rope to Monique, then they both hear the avalanche, instead of being killed by the approaching avalanche, why didn't he just grab ahold of the rope, and quickly slide down the side of the mountain? He had sufficient time to do this.
Corrected entry: Seeing as the first nitro explosion caused so much destruction, how come the second bang to clear the ice cave doesn't cause an avalanche too?
Corrected entry: After the avalanche, Cyril is hanging on the side of the cliff while Monique is standing above him. She asks him if he sees the rocks to his left, but looks at his right.
Corrected entry: This film shows the rotor blades hitting something and cutting it up without being damaged. Helicopter rotor blades are very delicately balanced and are easily bent or split if they strike something solid when they are in motion. Hitting a human body would bring the helicopter down.
Corrected entry: In the shot where we see the father hit the ground when Peter cuts his rope, shouldn't we also see the bodies of the other guys who fell before him?
