Journey to the Center of the Earth

Continuity mistake: When Trevor and Sean climb out of the lagoon, they realise Hannah is still underwater so Trevor dives back in to rescue her. When he retrieves her from the water and they all scramble back onto the rocks, Trevor leans his head back onto his backpack. In the next shot his head is now resting on the rocky shore below his backpack. (00:38:10)

Continuity mistake: When Trevor is fighting off the carnivorous plants that are attacking him and holding Hannah hostage, in one shot we see him punch into the mouth of one plant, causing his hand to become entirely covered in a sticky goo. In the following shots however, the same hand is now clean. (01:01:55)

Continuity mistake: As Trevor and Hannah and the boy are traveling up the volcano on the cushion of steam, Trevor's arm constantly changes position instantly with different shots. Sometimes his arm is across Hannah's chest, then it's under her head, and back across her chest.

Continuity mistake: When the Italian farmer starts to shout, Trevor raises his right arm to comfort Hannah. In the next shot it's down, and he doesn't raise it until much later.

Continuity mistake: Trevor falls a short distance to the floor after Hannah cuts his harness ropes with a knife. After he hits the floor and the ropes fall onto him, between shots the ropes laying all over his body and face keep moving, disappearing and appearing. (00:26:40)

Continuity mistake: When Hannah is tending to Trevor and Sean as guests in her house, she brings three mugs over and places them on the table. Between shots the three mugs swap their places; you can easily see this by comparing them in relation to the book sitting next to them. (00:15:20)

Continuity mistake: When Sean is jumping across the floating magnetic rocks, as he jumps on the one that begins to flip him around twice, as he is flipped round the first time, it causes his small black utility belt (with the pocketknife and phone pouch) to fall off his waist, down into the abyss. In the following scenes moments later though, the same pouch/belt can be seen on his waist. (01:05:15)

Factual error: Trevor - a Professor of Geology - boasts about having an article published in Scientific American, and that is not something any scientist would do. Scientific American is looked upon with slight disdain by the scientific community, considered to be a populist crowd pleaser. It is not even peer reviewed. Considering that he has just turned the geological and archaeological worlds on their heads he would have been better off publishing in Journal of Geological Research or Geology, both prestigious professional journals.

Trivia: A subtle reference to this film's 3D format: In Max's box, Trevor finds a pocket stereoscope, which are funky looking glasses that create the illusion of a three-dimensional image from two-dimensional photographs. It was invented by Sir Charles Wheatstone in 1840.

Chosen answer: Yep. The DVD comes in 3-D and 2-D versions. The 3-D versions come with (if I remember correctly) four pairs of 3-D glasses.
