Plot hole: The day after the plane crash-lands on the island, we see an aircraft carrier at sea and a squadron of heavily armed Marines climbing on board a Chinook helicopter. Someone is heard saying that they picked up a mayday from the plane before it went down, and the Marines are on their way to save the people on the island. Why did the Marines wait until the next day to go rescue the people? And if it's a rescue mission, why are they in full battle gear and carrying so many guns, since nothing was mentioned about the bad guys being on the island? These questions are moot since the Marines never arrive and no mention is ever made of them or the rescue mission again.Mark Bernhard
Plot hole: When the plane is crash landing in the storm and Nicolette Sheridan is calling for 'mayday', they can't get through to anyone because of the weather. The next day, one of the characters claims they heard on the plane's radio (before they crashed) that there's a tsunami headed toward them. If the radio was out, how did they know about the tsunami?Mark Bernhard
Deliberate mistake: 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.Mark Bernhard
Trivia: 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.Mark Bernhard
