Character mistake: When Sean and Hank are trying to get to the Nautilus, they swim right through a big school of jellyfish. Seems really unlikely that Sean, raised by a scientist and Hank, an ex Navy man would do this, considering how many species of jellyfish can give a sting ranging from agonizing to deadly. And, while they have a limited oxygen supply in this scene, and time is a factor, the scene shows there is room to swim under them. They actually pause in the middle of the school to grin at each other. There would have been sufficient time and oxygen to avoid the school.

Character mistake: Bud keeps calling Sarah "Ma'am." Sarah is a corporal. Corporals don't get called ma'am or sir in the US Army. Bud has been in the Army for seven months. No soldier would make this mistake after the third week of boot camp. Anytime you call an enlisted man or NCO sir, you are looking at about 20-50 push-ups or sit-ups to correct you. It's conditioned into you.
