Goofs A shipping container would not sink in water when it is full of air. When the container with Eddie & the boy in it hits the water, it immediately sinks like a stone. But it is still full of air, which would make it like a flotation device. And since the door was unlatched before it was pushed in the water, Eddie could have just pushed it open. In fact, the impact should have knocked it open. See more »
