Corrected entry: When the vessel entered the geode (the great big empty hole), the crew was forced forward by the falling of the ship. They should have felt weightless - the ship was in free fall just like the "Vomit Comet" used by the Air Force to train astronauts and by Ron Howard to film Apollo 13.
Corrected entry: Considering the nukes would be crushed by the pressure and heat in the Core, how exactly did the team plan to set them off WITHOUT having to detach the compartments in the first place? They couldn't simply seed them by "dropping them out a hatch".
Corrected entry: When Josh and Zimsky are briefing the military on the ramifications of the core stopping, they state that after three months, all electronic devices will fry. It takes three months to build Virgil, as stated by Braz ("I built this ship in three damn months") and yet on the surface all electronic devices are working fine.Brad
Corrected entry: At the very end of the movie when the credits are rolling you see a panned view of the earth. The earth is rotating the wrong way. (02:00:50)
Corrected entry: When the crew are entering the geode, we can see the blue/purple crystals on screen and the empty space is shown as black. A minute earlier we were informed that empty space showed up as static and black patches were what they could not pass through. Apparently empty space is too dense to travel through?
Corrected entry: When Drs. Keyes and Zimsky are explaining to the military guys at the Pentagon what is going to happen, Zimsky is wearing a wedding ring (or at least, a ring on his wedding finger). There is no reference to him being married anywhere in the movie, nor is he wearing a ring in any of the other scenes.(The ring is probably Stanley Tuccis since he still was married at the time of the making of "The Core")
Corrected entry: When the ship first launches, they switch on the headlights. They use a special device to see outside the ship, and the ship has no windows, so why does the ship have lights?
Corrected entry: In the scene where Serge and Dr. Keyes first walk into the room with all the dead bodies, you can see that the number on the HMMWV says 69. Not only are these placards rarely ever used in the military, you'll never see one that says 69 unless a soldier is playing a joke.
Corrected entry: When the UH-60 Blackhawk helicopter is landing in front of the hangar at Brazz's hanger, you can see sand on the wheels. Its as if the part of the Blackhawk you see is a model and they've practiced the landing numerous times, because any sand on the wheels would certainly have gotten blown off in flight. (00:28:30)
Corrected entry: While in the geode, you can see that the giant crystals are twinkling and there is a definite source of natural looking light. Being as light has trouble penetrating through a few hundred metres of sea water, it would be fairly unlikely (impossible) for light to reach inside a sealed geode a few thousand miles beneath the surface of the earth. (01:03:40)
Corrected entry: At the very end of the movie, Rat goes to an Internet cafe to disseminate information via the web. As the upload starts from his laptop, his screen says "On it's way". It should be "its" (without apostrophe).
Corrected entry: In the scene near the end where we see the ships looking for the Virgil in the ocean, the ships are close together in a nice, tight, circular formation. If they were on a search mission, shouldn't they have been spread out more?
Corrected entry: There should have been a significantly reduced force of gravity experienced in the ship when it approached the core because there would have been a large mass of the earth above the ship as well as below the ship, and both sides would be exerting gravitational pulls.
Corrected entry: At the end when Josh and Rebbecca are at the bottom of the ocean, she says they could be 800 miles deep. Being a geologist, Joshua must have known that the deepest point in the ocean is about 6.8 miles deep and therefore had to correct her. And that would be the Marianas trench. The place where they entered the crust. (01:54:45)Dragon
Corrected entry: In the EM tear scene, our first shot is a beam coming from the sun onto the earth's surface, and, as anyone can easily see, it is fairly wide. But, after that, when we see a tree dying, it first has an affection area of about 15 feet. 15 feet is invisible from space. (01:26:20)
Corrected entry: When the Golden Gate Bridge is being destroyed by microwaves, we see a guy get 'sunburnt'. When he's looking at the sunburn, you can see that no one is in the car next to him. You may only be able to see it, if you're using the widescreen version. (01:26:55)
Corrected entry: Towards the end of the movie, when Dr. Keyes and Beck were going back through the earth towards the surface, they said they were going twice as fast as they were going when they went into the core. Now, judging from the speed Virgil was going when they were headed for the core and how the pressure on your body lessens the farther you go up, the lack of pressure should have caused the veins in their bodies to burst, causing them to die almost instantly.
Corrected entry: When they are telling Rebeccah that she has exceptional navigational skills and is reassigned to the team they keep calling her "Major" but prior to that when the Army General is talking to her about how her crew crashed the space shuttle she has a silver leaf on her epaulette. Silver is Lieutenant Colonel, major would be a gold leaf. Major (Gold Leaf) is a step down from Lieutenant Colonel (Silver Leaf). Major is an 0-4, LTCol is an 0-5. Demoting an officer is a congressional act and it wouldn't have been done until the investigation was completed; she wouldn't have been demoted out of simple suspicion of the crash being her fault.EMTurbo
