Factual error: When the group is travelling through the canyon near the end of the film, they are burning liquor to light the way, yet there is a lot more light than would be given off from this small flame. And none of it is flickering as would happen with a naked flame.
Factual error: The rock samples are from "22 years ago this month," and the solar model predicts a solar eclipse every 22 years. But in order for the sample records to be kept, they must be marked relative to an interplanetary standard. For the orrery to have consistently accurate meaning, it must be set to local years - revolutions of the mystery planet around the sun. One timekeeping is used for records that must be transferrable to other planets and the other for daily use like time of day, but the two cannot be mixed. This makes much more sense than applying the standard cycle to local time - it would totally ignore local events like day, night, and eclipses, all of which are very important.Phoenix
Character mistake: When Carolyn first addresses Imam, she quite obviously pronounces his name "ell-mom," as though the capital I in his title were a lower-case L. It should be pronounced "ee-mam". We distinctly hear Ali call out his name in this fashion after the ship crash lands on the planet.THGhost
Plot hole: Riddick seals them in the cave and goes to the ship. They fill bottles with the glow worms while he starts preparing the ship. Caroline magically appears outside the cave and climbing over the ridge that is overlooking the "town." She runs to the ship and tells him that she promised "them" she would return with more light. 1. How did she get out? If it was a second hole then the creatures would have gotten in 2. She never said she'd be back with more light to them.
Continuity mistake: When Fry is sitting by the giant bones, Johns approaches her drinking from a bottle and offers her a drink. When she takes the bottle, it has the cap on.
Other mistake: When Fry is looking around for Riddick at the end, she's holding the blue bottle of bugs to light her way. The blue light on her face isn't from the bottle as she holds it, as she's circling around in some cases with the bottle completely behind her, yet her face is still lit up blue.jerimiah
