Early in the movie, Oliver Lindenbrook speaks of the "stars and galaxies of outer space." In the 1880s, however, our Milky Way galaxy was believed to constitute the entire universe. Knowledge that other galaxies exist beyond our own did not come about till the 1920s. Thus a man of the 1880s would not use the word "galaxy" in its plural form.
At the beginning of their underground trek, Alec is asked to start singing for them. The concertina music starts while he is still walking using the alpenstock and holding a lamp, an impossibility if he were playing the concertina which requires both hands and is shown in the next take as the scene continues.
When Alec walks alone over a rock bridge, a dislodged chunk falls away silently. When Alec tries to backtrack over it, two more chunks break away, but this time both pieces make splashes as they hit a phosphorescent pool distantly below.
A Swedish scientist is named Goetabaug. Göteborg is the name of Sweden's second biggest city, but is unknown as the name of a person. The writers apparently assumed that since English-speaking people such as Jack London and Michael York can be named for large English cities, then Swedes can be named after Swedish cities, but this is simply not so.
The party is underground for many months, yet the men's hair length never changes, and Lindenbrook even comments when the updraft near Atlantis is bothering Carla by making her long hair blow into her face, "If we had shears, we could cut if off." There was no way the men could give each other haircuts, yet their hair never seems to grow throughout the many months they are underground.
When Carla discovers the original three notches and the trick that that Count pulled on them, all of the original party except Alec are at the juncture of the two trails. Sir Oliver chisels a piece of stone from an opposite wall for a specimen, and a huge flood is released. But instead of going down the right trail (or even the left one where Alec was) they take another trail that wasn't there before and wind up in the dead-end room that fills with water.
When Hans is helping Carla and Lindenbrook out of the cave filling with water, from above Lindenbrook is seen with his head to the top of the hole, the water up to his neck. In the next shot from below, the water is only up to Lindenbrook's waist.
Just before they start their walk underground, Professor Lindenbrook lays down some ground rules. One of them is not using more than two of the lamps at any one time. Just after the large boulder chases them down the path, the group is standing with three lamps illuminated.
Hans pursues Count Saknussemm after killing Gertrude the duck. When Hans looks up to find Saknussemm carving into a wall. That shot reveals a camera and/or lighting equipment in the upper-left corner of the shot.
Towards the end of the movie just before the party enters the underground sea, they are attacked by giant lizards. Carla trips over the boat and when the party goes to help Carla up you can clearly see a hand move some rope on the bottom right side of the screen, even though all the party is present in the shot on the left side.
When on the raft, Professor Lindenbrook remarks that their gold is being drawn away by a great force, and says there must be "a conjunction of magnetic forces from the north pole and the south pole". Even assuming that he is talking about the magnetic rather than the geographic poles, such a location would result in the magnetic pull from the poles being cancelled out. In any case, there would be no effect on the gold, as it is not attracted by magnetism.
As the raft is caught in the whirlpool, a thunderstorm, complete with rain and lightning, breaks out. Even given the fantasy aspects of the film, there is no possibility that a thunderstorm, which requires an active atmosphere with clouds, could occur in the center of the Earth.
When Professor Lindenbrook is hailed by his class for being knighted, he is presented with a gift by the Laird of Glendarick; later Alec shows up for dinner wearing kilts loaned to him by the young Laird, claiming he has no rights to wear the Tartan of Glendarick. There is no such tartan or family name registered in Scotland.
When Alec arrives for dinner, he rings the doorbell. When he does so, Jenny goes to answer the door telling the maid that her Uncle Oliver has arrived. If it is Oliver's house, why would he need to ring the bell to gain entrance?
Having found Atlantis, the Lindenbrook party finds the remains of a human whom they assume is Arne Saknussemm. But how can Saknussemm have written the instructions to begin the journey to the center of the Earth, (in which he states he has completed the journey himself) if he never made it back to the surface?
With only 19 or so minutes left of the movie, we see Count Saknussemm fall backward and rocks and stones fall on him. Hans is the first to run over to where it happens. At this point, the entire group is barefoot, including Hans. However, as Hans easily jogs up the incline we can be easily see his nice white tennis shoes.
When the altar stone is being pushed upward in the volcano, the distance shot of the model shows it remaining in a fixed position. But in the close-ups of the actors, the stone is turning and moving back and forth as it travels upward.
When Lindenbrook and Count Saknussemm come back out of the sea after escaping the giant lizard, their footprints in the sand from running out during a previous take are clearly visible. It is not their footprints from running in.
