A car smashes through a guardrail on a bridge, yet in the following scene there is no evidence of a break in the railing.
The kids find a stick-shift Mustang, but the girl who drives it keeps her right hand on the wheel, and her left hand out the window throughout the scene, including times when she would have to be shifting gears.
6m30s in, a guy is playing the guitar with two females (both wearing a yellow T-shirt) around him, while a camp instructor is dancing around. The camera cuts to show Alex, and then cuts back to the instructor. Only this time, the left female all of a sudden is wearing a jacket.
At various points, the movie shows distant explosions with the sound and light from these events reaching the viewer at the same time. Since the speed of sound is far slower than the speed of light, the sound should reach the viewer approximately 4.7 seconds per mile distant from the viewer after the visible explosions.
The opening scene shows the ISS spinning about its center of mass, and various damaged and detached parts also rotating about this same point. Without any physical connection to tether these parts to the whole, they would not continue to rotate; instead, they would continue on their own linear trajectory away from the ISS.
Alex says the reason the phones don't work is because the power is out, but landline phones work in power outages because they get power from backup batteries and generators from the phone company (however, this depends on the technical configuration of the phone and connection).
When Alex first meets Zhen, he greets her in Mandarin with the phrase "Duibuqi" while the English subtitles read "I offer greetings, my fair princess." "Duibuqi" can be used as a greeting, usually interpreted as "excuse me", " pardon me" or "sorry" but the phrase doesn't contain anything that could be interpreted as "fair princess" or any other compliment.
Earlier in the movie, an EMP knocks out all electronics and electric devices (such as cell phones). When the kids find the 1971 Mustang, one of them states that it is an older car which doesn't need electronics to run. However, when they start driving the car, they are shown turning the radio on and blasting the speakers.
