Continuity mistake: When Jackson and the kids are at the dried up lake in Yellowstone park, they walk past the carcass of an elk. We change to the long shot, and when the army arrives, the carcass has gone. (00:22:30)

Factual error: The scene where Yuri starts the car with his voice has two mistakes in it.
