Corrected entry: After Bob and Charlie kill the bear, they are shown wearing clothing made from the bearskin. How did they cure the skin so fast? A raw hide would not work for garments. Tanning a bear hide of that size would take about a fortnight even if they did have the necessary chemicals and equipment, which they show no sign of having.
Corrected entry: The whole film is stupid. If they had stayed where they were, in an open area, to be seen easily, and with, say, 3/4 fires burning, to keep the bears (and other creatures) away and as signal fires, and near the water, so they can drink it and, with all of the above, they would have been found in 1/2 days. But then they wouldn't have a film, would they?kh1616
Corrected entry: Before the plane crashes into the lake, a bird hits the windshield and shatters the glass. When the plane does crash and sink into the lake, the windshield is seen underwater in perfect condition.
Corrected entry: In the first scene they get off the jet and into that old red plane. Anthony Hopkins character is talking to someone, and we hear the engine of the red plane starting to turn over, but if you look closely for a split second over Anthony Hopkins left shoulder the prop of the plane is not even moving. Now I know nothing about planes but I do know that the prop is attached to the crankshaft which should turn when the engine is turned over to start. (00:03:15)FordGuy
Corrected entry: Near the end of the movie, when Bob falls down the dead fall, he is lying at the bottom in agony. Yet in the next scene, Charles/Hopkins plonks Bob down on the table in the lodge. Now that deadfall was some 8ft deep. How did old timer Hopkins lift a full grown man out of the pit? Bob's leg was clearly useless having had a giant spike through it. Did Hopkins have a ladder in his back pocket?
Corrected entry: In the scene where they try to hit the bear with a swinging rock, where does the rope come from?
Continuity mistake: In one of the scenes Hopkins is trying to make what I think is a fish hook or something. He's obviously been in the wilderness for a while so he's not clean shaven but he isn't exactly beardy either. However, during the scene with this fish hook his beard changes from moderate to bushy to moderate again within seconds.
