Corrected entry: When Doniger was explaining the "3D fax" to the students, he revealed there was another complete unit somewhere, plus the smaller prototypes. So when the machine was damaged, they could have just flown in the other unit - or used the small one to send back some spare beacons, with a bit more time on them.
Corrected entry: When the group first gets transported back to 1357, they are in a river. As soon as the group gets out of the river, Kate's hair is almost completely dry. It would have taken over 15 minutes for her long hair to be that dry.
Corrected entry: On the DVD, in the trailer 1 in Special Features, when it shows the shots of the group going to 1357 in the machine, Kate and Chris have switched places when going through the wormhole in the machine. They're still holding hands though.
Corrected entry: In the final shot of Kate and Chris, after they have read the inscription on Andre Marek and Claire's tombstone, they grasp each other's hand and hold it in the same position as Andre and Claire are on the sarcophagus.
Corrected entry: At the end of the movie Doniger accidentally gets locked inside the time machine and says something like, "I don't have a marker. I'll never get home." The last sentence, however, can only be heard - his lips are not moving.
Corrected entry: Where did the scientist at the beginning appear from? Why did he wind up appearing out in the middle of the desert, far from the machine? There is no logical way this could have happened, according to the film's plot. However, even the other scientists are aware that this was strange, but they never make any attempt at explaining it. This was a flaw that was left very unfixed.redbaron2000
Corrected entry: When you go back in time to catch up with someone shouldn't you be in the EXACT time and place where the other arrived? You shouldn't be days or so late because the machine was configured to send you to that same time. We can't presume to say that the machine was erratic because when they were sent as a group they all arrived at the same place and time. Of course, by then the movie would be over. This is typical of most time travel movies.
Corrected entry: When the group is imprisoned for the first time and Kate tries to escape through the roof a concrete structure is visible in the background twice. Concrete wasn't invented until 1756. (And everything else in the towns/castles is made out of wood, stones and grass.)
Corrected entry: Just after Lady Claire and Marek get out of the boat to meet the French, somebody wolf-whistles. They did not have that at that time period.
Corrected entry: When Kate initially finds what the professor left behind in the tunnel, it is only one lens that is found (along with the parchment). Later when she is looking for the tunnel in the monastery, you see a complete pair of glasses that have been left behind by the professor.
Corrected entry: It is made very clear several times throughout the movie that the team of students is going back to the year 1357. However, when Stern is showing the students the result of his discovery on the computer screen, concerning how old the ink on the document with the Professor's handwriting is, the date is 1361.
Corrected entry: As the grenade destroys the time machine, Stern and Doniger discuss the situation and Stern says something like: "You can't leave seven people stuck back there." However, Barretto's back, so he should've said: "... six people stuck back there."
Corrected entry: In the scene with the Professor and Gordon tied to the wagon, after DeKere stabs Gordon and cuts their ropes, the Professor still walks as though he was tied to the wagon.
Corrected entry: Marek admits to Lord Oliver that he is Scottish; but being an archaeologist who studies the 100 year war, he would know that France and Scotland were allies, and the English were at war with Scotland (which Lord Oliver later points out). If he actually used his head, he could have gotten either Kate or Chris to speak for them and so claim that they are English and therefore save them the trouble of being caught.
Corrected entry: This movie takes place in 1357. Christopher Columbus did not discover "America" until 1492. The "American" accent did not officially emerge until the late 1500's when the Queen of England was told about a new language being spoken in the New World, which was not a new language, but simply the new American accent. The point is, an American accent was not around anywhere in the world in 1357, thus Paul Walker's accent would have been absolutely shocking to ANYONE who heard him speak.
Corrected entry: The grenade that one of the time travellers was holding was actually a smoke grenade. Therefore, it would not have caused the massive explosion shown. There would have been no damage - all the scientists would have had to do is air the room out a little.
Corrected entry: When the modern day characters first meet the British fighters (in the scene where the British are having a sword fight) there is a big deal made about the accents of the Scottish and French men - one is even killed for having a French accent. It does not make any sense then, that when Paul Walker speaks in his thick American accent, that nobody bats an eyelid. Also, when Frances O'Connor and Paul Walker are travelling through the tunnel at the end of the film, the Frenchman (brother of Lady Claire) hears them speaking and shouts "You are English." English and American accents sound nothing alike, and I'm sure that even those from 1357 would notice that.
Corrected entry: When they first went back to the 14th century, they were told if one person presses the medallion, they would all go back. Why is it when the one ex-marine pushed his, only he went back?
