In the opening sequence, the captain orders the Seaview to the surface. It's shown surfacing rapidly in a near-vertical position, near icebergs in daylight, with about 1/2 of the Seaview's length out of the water. It falls flat to the water's surface and the scene is cut back to the interior where the crew are all at their stations as though nothing has happened. The captain is still standing at the periscope and his coat is still draped over the railing nearby. The paper charts piled on the nearby table aren't all over the room. When the captain and admiral go out of the hatch a few seconds later to observe an enemy's bomb test, it's now dark outside. See more
