Corrected entry: Throughout the movie, the remaining Dog Isabelle can be heard barking when the Aliens are near or she detects hostility. However, in the scene where Graham sees the Alien on the Roof the Dog isn't heard - even when Graham and Merril are running round the outside of the house making noise and shouting.
Corrected entry: When the rest of the world finally starts seeing the lights in the sky, there is not any mention for the remainder of the movie of any military presence or actions being taken against the aliens. Given how simple the aliens are to defeat with water and physical violence this doesn't make sense, especially given the technology and weapons we have at our disposal.jerimiah
Corrected entry: Before the alien attacks Morgan in the basement, only Merrill and Graham have flashlights. Graham drops his flashlight as he goes to grab Morgan. Bo picks it up and shines it on Graham and Morgan, who are on the other side of the room; he then goes and sits with Merrill, putting both flashlights on the same side of the room. However, when Merrill says they should save the flashlights, one light turns off on either side of the room.
Corrected entry: The dad walks into a room with glasses of water all over the place (this is after the night when the alien was on the roof) and his daughter is watching a cartoon, called "Dexter's laboratory". In the episode she's watching a scene is missing, in between the part where the father hits the bug off the ladies' hair and the part where the character says "do it up".
Corrected entry: In the scene where Graham hears Bo scream, he uses his right hand to open her bedroom door. In the shot from inside the room, his left arm is outstretched as if he had opened the door with that hand.
Corrected entry: When the alien is killed in the end, we see his point-of-view as the glass of water tips and spills on his face, and you can blatantly tell that is a prop. Firstly, it doesn't spill as it tips, it only starts to spill after it has completly fallen over, which doesn't happen when a glass tips (try it yourself). And secondly, you can see it continue to pour out water for at least five or six seconds, meaning that more water has spilled than the glass could even carry.
Corrected entry: When everyone is in the basement, Merrill breaks a light bulb while pulling an ax off a shelf. If you watch frame-by-frame, you will notice it breaks twice.
Corrected entry: It is hinted that the aliens have been visiting Earth since the 1970s for recognisance purposes. In all that time, did they never notice how much it rains on this planet? Were the aliens flying over the deserts most of the time?
Corrected entry: Late in the film you find out that water is to aliens as strong acid is to humans. However, earlier in the film when Mel Gibson goes to investigate the corn fields with the torch, the aliens are running around in the mist filled corn fields. Correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't mist just water vapor? Seeing how bad a glass of water ate away at the alien's flesh, even the slightest bit of water such as water vapour in the lungs and on the skin should cause serious damage or at least painful irritation, especially with prolonged exposure such as a few minutes. Just imagine a human breathing acid fumes, or walking in a room filled with acid gas.
Corrected entry: At one point, the little girl turns up the volume on the television set, where some professor is discussing the crop circles. The television is muted, yet the sound comes on instantly when she presses the button. Furthermore, despite the fact the she has her hand on the volume button for a good few seconds, the sound level on the TV remains the same.
Corrected entry: Later in the movie we hear from the radio/TV that the aliens have been scared out of other countries as the inhabitants have discovered some "primitive methods" of defense. Of course its very unlikely that those countries wouldn't have mentioned the fact that it was water. Then it would only make sense to forward that information to the REST OF THE WORLD along with any newspieces. Is it that hard to say "oh by the way, you can rid yourself of any pesky aliens by using WATER.".
Corrected entry: Ray tells Graham that he passed Graham's wife on the road 10-15 seconds before he hit her. How could he hit her if he already passed her on the road? What, did he do a U-turn in order to hit her?
Corrected entry: Almost every time Morgan takes a puff from his inhaler, he doesn't depress the pump and therefore would not get any medicine. (00:10:05)
Corrected entry: I still can't get over how stupid the aliens are in this movie. If they are an advanced race that can travel through space, why are they naked and unarmed in their invasion? You'd think some weapons, armor or tools would help.
