When Ellie is attempting to get a better look at the Showground, she runs up to and grasps a Rural Fire Service tanker. The doors to the crew space are closed. In the next part, when she crawls underneath, the camera pans up and the doors are now open.

Factual errors 

Numerous examples of vehicles exploding when a bullet hits the fuel tank. Contrary to popular belief, liquid fuel is not explosive, it isn't even flammable. What explodes is vaporized fuel - and then, only if mixed with air in a precise ratio.

Numerous examples of flame-filled explosions that apparently send people flying along with various bits of the set; while nearby trees and bushes are unaffected.

Numerous examples of helicopters (which are very loud) not being heard until they're almost directly overhead. In reality these are audible from some distance.

Plot holes 

The invaders round up the entire population. No real-life invaders have ever done that: it would destroy the value of the invaded society and create immense problems feeding and guarding them. Even the Nazis did deportations by stages.

Revealing mistakes 

During the garbage truck chase, many lights can be seen on in the windows of numerous businesses lining the streets, as well as various illuminated signs in the background of several shots, despite the fact that the power is supposed to be out in town, and that most of the invasion took place during the day when no lights would be on.

The helicopter hovering above the home is a Robinson R44, being a small 4 seat, single piston engine helicopter. A military force would never use this type of helicopter for any purpose. The sound effects are that of a larger turbine engine helicopter (which helicopter is difficult to judge as the sound has been modified) and do not match the R44 piston engine.
