Revealing Mistakes When the burning rocks rain down on Naples, a man's arm catches fire. The pyrotechnic barrier gel on the actor's arm is plainly visible.
Factual Mistake The corner where Jeff and his squad stop when they come to Pompeii is not even far-remembering anything Neaples-Pompeii related: in the background even a clear "Bank" sign can be seen.
Revealing Mistakes When the heat wave strikes Pompeii, it vaporizes people attempting to escape, yet has no effect on foliage, a vehicle, or any of their other surroundings.
Character Error Mykaela remarks that only one person, a prisoner, survived in the direct path of the 1902 volcanic eruption in Martinique. In fact, two people survived.
Character Error During the helicopter chase scene, the co-pilot states that they are "almost at firing range" when external views show the helicopters to be within a few meters of each other. The helicopter would have been within firing range much further away.
