Continuity mistake: At the start, when Tommy Lee Jones puts the pan on the table, the distance between the milk and the bowl changes from being right next to each other to further apart. Also, the rug is not in line with the edge of the kitchen table, yet when the dog goes to lick up the egg, it is.

Visible crew/equipment: When the train pulls into the station there is a shot of the train and there is a very clear reflection of a cameraman. This is not when they are filming a documentary about trains using the red line.

Continuity mistake: At the end it starts to rain and everyone is covered in ash, soot, dust etc. However, after a few seconds of rain, all the ash, dust and soot have vanished off Roark, Kelly and Amy instantly.

Suggested correction: Obviously, the rain washed away the ash from them.

Continuity mistake: At the beginning of the film, Mike pulls off a frying pan of eggs from the stove, if you look at the eggs, there are virtually none in the centre of the pan, but in the next shot when he goes to put the pan down before it drops, the centre of the pan is now full of egg.

Continuity mistake: When Roark is trying to get a radio, and Emmitt is watching on the big screen in the OEM building, there is a black man behind him who is talking to the guy with the headset on. In one shot the black guy is almost back to back with Emmitt and looks over his shoulder to look at the screen, yet when it cuts, the black guy is talking to the other guy but is not back to back with Emmitt.

Continuity mistake: Before they build the lava dam, when Mike flips over a map on the hood of a truck to draw on it the map is clear of ash. In the next shot from across the hood the map is covered with ash. The next close up it is ash free again.

Revealing mistake: When the fire truck gets hit by a lava ball and flips over, you can see two smoke plumes coming out the bottom of the truck. These are the remains of the two cannons used to flip the truck over.

Continuity mistake: When Roark has been seen looking for a radio, there is a bloke behind Emmit who has a headset on. The camera does an instant cut to the front and the headset has gone.

Continuity mistake: Just after Amy gets out of the drain, her fire suit is off her one shoulder and halfway between her shoulder and elbow. The camera cuts and it is back on her shoulder up to her neck instantly.

Factual error: The volcanic ash that can be seen throughout the film is too big to be real. The ash shown is something like 1-2 cm in diameter. Volcanic ash is not that big in real life; it is not more than 2 millimetres in diameter.

Continuity mistake: Roark's car has the windscreen smashed and cracked by the volcanic ash. In some shots, mainly a distant shot of it being driven, there are no cracks in the windscreen.

Continuity mistake: The severity of Kelly's wound to the face constantly changes. Some shots it's extremely red and raw, others it's only slightly red.

Continuity mistake: When Amy Barnes is leaning against the 4x4/humvee, she realises it is snowing so she puts her hand up. In the previous shot she touches her face with gloves on, and in the following shot the gloves are no longer on her hands.
