Alien Vs. Predator

Factual error: When they're first entering the whaling camp, a penguin startles Miller. That penguin was a black-footed penguin, which is a bird native to much warmer climates. If that little guy had actually been in Antarctica, he would have died within minutes. (00:20:40)

Factual error: The expedition leader claims that Bouvet Island is not under any national control, because of the Antarctic Treaty. However, because of its remoteness from the continent of Antarctica, Bouvet Island is actually not included in this treaty and Norway has full ownership of this island. (00:12:35)

Factual error: When arriving in Antarctica, there is dialogue about the full moon (la luna di cacciatore, etc...) There is no full moon on 10/10/2004 in Antarctica. But it does look nice in the movie... (00:12:15)

Factual error: The Desert Eagle that Miller & Lex use to shoot Aliens can hold a maximum of 9 rounds in .357 Magnum. Yet they fire quite a large number of shots from the same gun without reloading. High-capacity magazines are unavailable for the Desert Eagle as the magnum rounds are just too big. (01:02:45 - 01:14:00)

Factual error: The members of the expedition are wearing their Snow Goggles on their hats with the lenses to the front. However, anyone who has ever worked in a cold weather environment (especially the guide and her "7 seasons on the ice") would know that the goggles should be worn backwards if they're not over your eyes. This keeps them from getting moisture on them.

Factual error: When the predator starts to kill Weyland, Weyland uses his oxygen tank as a makeshift flame thrower. Contrary to popular belief, oxygen does NOT burn. It only allows other things to burn. The three things needed for a fire are oxygen (which he had), fuel (which he did NOT have) and heat (from the flare he lit). (00:59:25)

Factual error: When they're first entering the whaling camp, a penguin startles Miller. That penguin was a black-footed penguin, which is a bird native to much warmer climates. If that little guy had actually been in Antarctica, he would have died within minutes. (00:20:40)

Sebastian de Rosa: When that door opens, we're dead.
Alexa 'Lex' Woods: Not if we set things right.
Sebastian de Rosa: What do you mean?
Alexa 'Lex' Woods: This pyramid, it's like a prison. We took the guards' guns, and now the prisoners are running free. To restore order, the guards need their guns.

Trivia: The line "You are one ugly m*****" that Lex delivers to the Alien when she kills it before the exit through the shaft, is the same that Major "Dutch" Schaeffer told to the Predator in the original "Predator" (1987) film.
