Factual error: In relation to the position of the sewage workers shadow, and the way Jason kills him, there is no way that the splatter of blood would have hit the wall the way it does. In addition the blood looks like paint. (01:27:20)

Continuity mistake: After Wayne shoots his friend, he looks through his camera. The timer on the camera reads "20:19." It cuts to another angle of Wayne, then back. The camera still reads "20:19" even though a few seconds passed in the other shot. (00:48:30)

Visible crew/equipment: When everyone is getting off the ship and into the small boat, it's raining. Jason is looking down at them - right when he is looking down you can see above him the sprinkler making the rain. (00:57:40)

Revealing mistake: When Rennie is pushed overboard the ship stays in the exact same place, as if it is docked. In reality the boat would have sailed on, leaving Rennie behind. (00:29:25)

Plot hole: Where exactly did all the other people go on the ship? In the beginning of the movie there were people everywhere then all of a sudden it's down to the main characters.

Continuity mistake: When Rennie gets up and walks over to the closet, you can see some items on the side, such as a decorated silk cloth, a bag etc. When Jason then looks through the porthole into Rennie's room, the position of all the items are different. (00:21:35)

Continuity mistake: When Rennie is being pushed overboard, notice the guys sitting in the background wearing a blue shirt. When it cuts from below the ship, as we see Rennie falling, the guy is gone. Also when Miss Van Deusen goes for the life ring, we see from below the ship that the guy is gone. But when it cuts he is there again. (00:29:20)

Revealing mistake: When Jason breaks through the glass trying to get to Rennie it is obvious that the glass is just plastic. It is most noticeable when Jason is moving his head, the glass bends.

Suggested correction: The glass is real, the actress has even stated that it almost punctured her eye.

Continuity mistake: When Toby turns up at the end, in the street, in the first shot of him his shadow is short. In the next shot it's very long. (01:32:15)
