Corrected entry: At the beginning of the movie, there was only one dragon (which was male). Where did the female dragons come from by the end of the movie, when there was only one male dragon to start with?
Corrected entry: When McConaughey introduces the female pilot he identifies her as "Jensen, U.S Calvary" instead of "Cavalry." One is an ancient place for crucifixions, the other is an Air Mobile division. (00:41:00)
Corrected entry: When Quinn sets up the last beacon how was VanZan to know he was riding a horse to use as bait to bring the dragon in for him to kill?
Corrected entry: A starving, hundred tonne creature incinerates Quinn's little veggie patch, then stops to devour the ash. Later Quinn comes back and finds the tomato vines blackened but still there, their stakes intact (not even knocked down), and even some crisp but still edible fruit on the vines.
Corrected entry: The dragons eat ash (weird, but they do say that). Supposedly the dragons are starving, yet nearly every scene in the film is covered with ash from horizon to horizon.
Corrected entry: In the scene where Alex is flying away from the castle on the way to London for the first time, you can see a train moving along the bottom the mountain.
Corrected entry: When the tanks are first entering Quinn's compound, at one point, you can see that on one of the tanks the treads aren't moving, but the tank is.
Corrected entry: At the start of the movie Quinn (as a child) is seen walking quite freely on a major building site. No hard hat and the freedom of a tube-line extension? Me thinks not.
Corrected entry: The dragons used didn't appear as a more traditional Dragon. Its appearance more resembled a Wyvern. Traditionally, dragons appeared with four legs and a set of wings, but these dragons only had two legs, much like a Wyvern (think a dragon w/ two legs and doesn't breathe fire).
Corrected entry: It's proven correct that the Dragons reproduce like fish, the female lays the eggs, and the male comes along later and fertilizes them after they are outside the mother's body. However, when Quinn pulls the egg out of the dead Dragon, we clearly see an outline of a baby Dragon inside the amber-colored egg. The egg was not fertilized as it was still inside the mother, so how did the embryo start growing?
Corrected entry: Quinn's men have fireproof suits, but the only time they use them they take them off just as the dragon reappears. The later expeditions ignore the suits completely, and they don't even attempt to use them when their castle is on fire.
Corrected entry: Where do the Americans get the fuel to run their trucks, tanks, helicopter, etc.? I did not see any fuel trucks in their convoy.
Corrected entry: When the male dragon destroys the castle he breathes fire down into the basement. The blast kills Quinn's friend and closes the metal door. Quinns hits the door with his hands as he tries to open it but recoils because the fire apparently heated the door. Since the sprinkler installation is working and even the door is wet the water should evaporate but there is no steam at all. So the door cannot be that hot, can it? (01:15:25)
Corrected entry: In the scene when Quinn rescues the runaway group in the veggie patch, there were guys in fireproof suits operating the hoses on the roofs of the 2 trucks. Then a guy in normal clothes took over one of the hoses. Wouldn't it have been smarter and safer to let the guy in the fireproof suit operate the hose? It was a tremendously stupid thing to do, considering he got cooked moments later.
Corrected entry: Not only is there the question of how the surviving humans have obtained fuel for their vehicles, but where is the electricity coming from that powers the lights and radio receivers that the humans use. Yes, it could be generators, but you never hear any generators running anywhere in their camp and those things are pretty loud.
Corrected entry: One scene states that the original dragon was awoken in 2008. The rest of the film takes place in 2020, a gap of twelve years. However, in the scene just before the helicopter arrives at the castle, a character states that no-one has flown in 20 years. Has flying gone out of fashion by 2008?
Corrected entry: How come you can hear the wind howling away, but the windmills don't move?
Corrected entry: When the male dragon attacks the castle, Quinn and his group takes shelter in the cellar. When they emerge, the entire castle is burnt to the ground - except for a pile of logs at the top of the cellar stairs.
