Corrected entry: When Chuck is going down with the plane his life boat has a small reddish bag attached. This gets attached to some metal piece and starts to pull him further underwater until it snaps off. Once on the island, he starts to drag the life boat towards the trees. As he walks further up you can see the little red bag being dragged behind the life boat.
Corrected entry: In the scene where Chuck is looking through the dead pilot's wallet, if you zoom in on the drivers license, the pilot's date of birth is listed as 1949. When Chuck buries the pilot, he writes 1950-1995 on the rock.
Corrected entry: At the Russian FedEx Office, Hanks orders everyone to get all the boxes into the "big truck". Actually, as he is working for FedEx, he would know the term is "shuttle".
Corrected entry: When Tom is taking a leak on the beach at night he turns away from the beach and toward the camera. The fake ship's light is viewable in the distance. Tom is squinting badly at that point and there is a large glare on his shoulder, indicating the scene was shot during bright sunlight. Even in a bright moon the squint is unlikely.
Corrected entry: After a night of rain, Chuck walks to the stack of FedEx boxes he covered with the now-deflated yellow raft. He flings the raft off and you see a bunch of water fly off with it. He then proceeds to try and drink any drops of fresh water in the coconut shells. Why didn't he try and drink from the little pools of water that had collected on the raft?
Corrected entry: In the scene where Chuck is finally rescued by the ship and he is holding his arm out towards the ship, if you look under the raft it looks like you can see the lines on the bottom of a swimming pool.. considering he is in the ocean the water doesn't really look that deep.
Corrected entry: When Chuck tries to get away with his liferaft, it sinks, and the coral pierces his upper leg. Though this is just a fleshwound, it's pretty nasty. He has no medical equipment whatsoever. But when he lies on the raft four years later, when his legs are visible there is not the slightest scar where he was wounded.
Corrected entry: In the scenes 4 years after Chuck has been on the island, we see he has grown his hair out and his beard is very long. What is out of place is his mustache is remarkably well-groomed. Whiskers don't grow evenly, and unless he had some scissors or something else to trim with, it's very unlikely that his mustache would be so evenly distributed around his mouth.
