Continuity mistake: When Carmen and Juni realise they've gone around in a circle, they run through the room of treasure again. There are some gold pots near the sword which Juni grabs later. In one shot they run past the gold pots, and one pot rolls across the coins. When it cuts to Juni grabbing the sword, the pot is back to it's original place, and the pots and coins as well as the sword differ their position between these shots too. (01:10:15)

Continuity mistake: On the sub, as Ingrid and Gregorio are off to save Carmen and Juni, Gregorio hears a noise and goes to open a circular metal door. It turns out to be Ingrids mother. Gregorio then opens the circular glass window, and she climbs through. As she climbs through, Gregorio's left hand leans against the wall, and he lowers his arm to his side. It cuts and his hand is then instantly back against the wall, and he once again lowers his arm. (00:58:30)

Continuity mistake: In the opening scene of Ingrid and Carmen at the vanity table, a green fern stands right beside the left side of the vanity table. In later close ups of Ingrid and Carmen in the mirror, the whole left side is clearly visible, yet the green fern is not seen, whereas in the previous shots the fern leaves were hanging right over that side and should be visible.
