Flash Gordon

Factual error: A meteorite falls onto Munson's bed, setting fire to it. He covers it up with blankets. But the meteorite is still red hot and would surely burn through, and set fire to his bed again.

Factual error: A meteorite zooming through the atmosphere would crash on the ground at a high speed and with a really high temperature, not like a cardboard orange-painted ball thrown from a couple meters away, as it happens in the movie.

Continuity mistake: There are a couple of instances in the movie where the models do not correspond with the actual sets. When Klytus arrives at the Hawkmen city he lands near the top of the city. Yet in that very hall there is a pit with a deep void underneath. Such a room could only exist at the bottom of the city. Also, when the Hawkmen start to land on Ajax, its engine section appears to be missing. (01:10:10 - 01:14:30)
