Volcano

Revealing mistake: When the fireman goes to enter the fire truck that is on its side to rescue his friend, for whatever reason, the filmmakers sped up the film during his entry into the truck, it looks really out of place. (00:40:30)

Revealing mistake: When Rachel dies during the major earthquake, the steam goes back into the hole perfectly. The steam's movement, which is unnatural, shows that they blew steam out of the crack and then ran the shot backwards. (00:27:50)

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. (00:34:55)

Factual error: The firemen would have used the "jaws of life" to get the fireman out instead of the fireman jumping up on the side of the firetruck and crawling through the window. The driver was trapped and could not have been rescued without them.

If we turn and run now, they're going to be defenseless! You don't like my plan? That's good. Give me a another plan, but don't tell me we're backing out.

Question: Does the art museum catch fire from the lava even though they tried to stop it by putting a bus against it?
