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)

Other mistake: During the miniaturizing scene the technicians controlling the forklift wore sterile gloves, the nurses assembling the syringe did not.
