The Abyss

Factual error: When Lindsay is being revived after Bud towed her back to Deepcore, I understand why the CPR being done isn't exactly correct(due to the fact the actress isn't really dead) but the filmmaker neglected to notice that when the crew proceeds to shock Lindsay, she is wet and on a metal floor. Not only would she be shocked, the entire crew around her would be shocked as well.

Factual error: When disarming the nuke Bud is trying to figure out which one of the two wires to cut. With only two wires running between two separated modules (in the film, one part is unscrewed from the other) any current flowing through one wire must be returned through the other in order to conserved electric charge. Cutting either wire, in this case, will result in breaking the circuit. There is no way for either side of the circuit to detect which wire(s) were cut.

Quotes

Bud Brigman: The guy is on his own, he's cut off from his chain of command, he's showing signs of pressure-induced psychosis, and he has a nuclear weapon. So as a personal favour to me, could you put your tongue in neutral for a while?!

Mistakes

Early in the film Bud throws his wedding ring down the latrine and then retrieves it with his right hand so it is covered with the blue disinfectant. In a (much) later scene, Bud has a blue right hand, despite not having had one in the intervening period.

Trivia

The dead sailor harbouring a live crab, spooking Jammer out of his wits in the sunk submarine, is director James Cameron's younger brother Mike. The scene had to be shot several times to get it right, forcing Mike to hold the live crabs in his mouth, until the cry for "action", before releasing them. At one point he had to crush one with his teeth, as it gave him quite a bit of grief. Brotherly love immortalized.
