The commandos blow a nice clean "hole" in a roll-up steel door and the commandos enter the building. In the next scene, only seconds later the entire door is missing.

Factual errors 

There are so many nautical mistakes in this film that it would take hours for me to list them all. For one, there are no navigation lights (masthead, port and starboard) visible during the shot of the ship sailing at night. Also, the ship's officers and naval crew do not use the proper radio vocabulary when using the communication devices (for example, the word "repeat" is not used. The proper words are "Say Again"). I could go on and on. Did they even have any seafaring advisers for this film?
When Belle swims the under water floor she is taking the rope with her. The rope is visibly floating freely, however back at the other end, the guy is holding the rope under tension.

The hole that is blown in the ship could not have turned the whole ship over. It would only have sunk the way Titanic had done, only by the stern instead of the bow.

Plot holes 

A woman is able to send a distress email even though the terrorists have cut all ship-to-shore communications, the ship is on emergency power, and the antennas and satellite dishes are underwater and pointed at the ocean floor.
