Suggested correction: It's possible that Nando continued shaving (offscreen) while they were living at the plane, but gave it up (or left his razor behind) during the trek out of the mountains. In real life, some of the survivors did shave while in the mountains.

Factual error: Most of the time the boys have no visible breaths, even though they're in a freezing climate.

Revealing mistake: At the beginning of the "Day 50" scene, there is a shot of the "human" meat thawing - in the top right of the screen, a pig snout is visible. (01:13:00)

Suggested correction: There is no pig snout. That is the end of a sleeve that has meat in it for their trip.

Continuity mistake: In the scene when the expedition of 3 finds the tail of the plane you can see an extra set of footprints in the snow when the team arrives. Who was the 4th person walking to the tail?

Revealing mistake: When Roy digs out Antonio in the snow, you see his mouth move although he's dead.

Revealing mistake: When Antonio cuts into the human meat, the 'chunk' he pulls out is obvious shreds of steaming chicken with tiny brown spots, than frozen human flesh.

Factual error: While debating when to begin the trek across the Andes with Nando, Roberto remarks that "winter will be over" soon. This incident took place in South America where the seasons are opposite from the northern hemisphere. The plane crashed in the spring and Nando and Roberto reached Chile by foot in the summer.

Antonio 'Tintín' Vizintín: Alberto.
Carlitos Páez: Dead.
Alberto Artuna: I'm not dead. I've never felt worse in my life, but I'm not dead.

Question: When the trio first found the tail, Nando writes "Go Up 18 Still Alive" in the tail. The fuselage is lower than the tail because after the tail was detached, the fuselage slid far down. The trio had to climb up the mountain to find the tail. So why does he write "up" instead of "down"?
