Fantastic Voyage

Revealing mistake: During the miniaturization process after Phase I, the sub has been reduced to coin-size at best. As the techs are beginning Phase II, they roll wheeled equipment by the tiny sub. There is a close-up of the sub pilot looking eye-level with the equipment wheel axle, and a tech's ankle is slightly below the pilot's eye-level. This is an impossible perspective: for the pilot to be eye-level with the wheel axle, the sub would have to be more like a foot in diameter and not coin-size. (00:27:10)

Question: They are found and removed from the patient's eye so easily. Why didn't they go in through the eye from the very beginning to begin with?

Answer: The miniaturized sub was injected into the man's carotid artery (neck) because it directly led to the brain and the blood clot. It was an unobstructed pathway taking the least amount of time for the sixty-minute mission. Exiting through the eye was done as an emergency escape route after the mission was sabotaged and the sub was destroyed. It was only easy to remove the crew once they exited the eye and were floating in the tears. Getting to and out the eye was difficult.
