Continuity mistake: Truman is seen in Florida talking with the astronauts prior to lift-off. From the same command center, he controls the entire mission. But Mission Control for all missions is in Houston, Texas. Once the rocket "clears the tower," Mission Control in Houston takes over. How can Truman be in Florida, then appear in Texas a few seconds later?
Character mistake: When Sharp is teaching AJ to remote detonate the bomb, he says to "lift, press, hold" the trigger device. But the actions with the hands are actually "lift, hold, press." Even AJ repeats it wrong. (02:11:00)
Trivia: Ben Affleck once stated in an interview that "I once asked Michael Bay why it was easier to train oil drillers to become astronauts that it was to train astronauts to become oil drillers, and he told me to shut the fuck up, so that was the end of it."
