Continuity mistake: As the experiment recreation progresses, and Helena identifies the spirit, the spirit appears with damage on the left side of its face, and a yellow sleeve on its right arm. When the camera is close up to the spirit, the damage and yellow sleeve change sides.Movie Nut
Other mistake: In the beginning, the Eagle was moving away from the alien planet, and as such, should have crash landed facing away from the planet. However, it was facing the direction it came from. If it traveled a fairly straight line, (and the trajectory suggests it did) then it should have crashed with the rear end facing the planet.Movie Nut
Revealing mistake: As Jackie is drawing, Koenig's face comes up on the communicator. As the screen goes from the idle/test pattern screen to the identity screen, you can see the picture jump, suggesting there was a pause in filming to allow the unit with the idle screen and the picture screen to be swapped out.Movie Nut
