Revealing mistake: When one of the bad guys is being dragged around by the monsters and thrown against pipes and walls and such, in wide shots you can see there is no monster really pulling him, and from the stiffness and position of his body, he is likely on some sort of device to swing him around.
Revealing mistake: Occasionally, when the characters are being eaten by the sea-monsters, you can see pieces of the computer-generated beasts going "through" the victim.
Trivia: Howard Atherton, the director of photography, had a lot of issues working on the film. When director Stephen Sommers asked him why he was having trouble, Atherton explained that he usually worked with directors who he didn't get along with, and their mutual animosity made him try extra hard to compensate. Atherton actually really, really liked working with the friendly, easy-going Sommers, which was a pleasant change of pace for him - but he also felt like he wasn't being challenged as he usually was.TedStixon
