Lost Treasure

Factual error: The storm that causes the plane to crash has supposedly also created a tsunami, which is headed for the island that the main characters are on. They claim to have "four or five" hours until it arrives. First of all, tsunamis aren't caused by storms. Additionally, when the "tsunami" is shown out at sea, it appears as a giant wave that overturns a cruise ship. In reality, tsunamis don't crest like that until they get close to land. Out at sea, a tsunami can pass right under a ship and the passengers would never know it.

Factual error: When the good guys finally find Columbus' treasure, it's in a wooden chest sitting outside. It seems unlikely that it would have survived 500 years outdoors. Even if no one had discovered it, the wood would have disintegrated long ago.

The four main "good guy" characters are stuck on an island with people who are trying to kill them. Steven Baldwin's character brings a pistol and takes a machine gun from one of the bad guys. Several times they overcome other armed men, but after defeating them, never bother to take the bad guys' guns. At one point, two characters argue over who gets to carry the pistol, yet when they knock out a man armed with a rifle, they leave it with him and just walk away.



This movie was so low budget that they actually used clips from other films for some scenes. When Steven Baldwin first meets Nicolette Sheridan, she's arguing with two tourists about the "rickety old" airplane they've booked a flight on. We never see the plane until it takes off, because all of the footage of the airplane is from the movie "Six Days, Seven Nights." When they're in the cockpit (a close-up, obviously a different plane), Nicolette is in the pilot's seat and Steven is on her right. When the plane is coming in for a landing, Harrison Ford is flying the plane and Anne Heche is in the co-pilot's seat. After the plane crashes, the four characters are sitting on the beach and the plane is nowhere to be seen.
