After Earth

Revealing mistake: Right after the huge bird soars back to the trees and Kitai begins to run along the river something has either been moved or cut from the scene...look almost to the bend in the river in the rocks.

Continuity mistake: Approximately two scenes after Kitai leaves the pigs' burrow where he sheltered for the night, the "cutlass" is suddenly missing from his backpack. He later retrieves another from the ship's tail section. There is likely a deleted scene which would have explained the loss of the cutlass.

Cypher Raige: The pull of our own graviton weight could set the thing off. Let's just hold course and hope I'm wrong.
Pilot: Just out of interest, sir. How often are you wrong?
Cypher Raige: My wife would give a very interesting answer to that question.

Question: The alien predators are blind and hunt by pheromones. Why don't humans just wear hermetically sealed suits to block the pheromones, or use false pheromones as decoys?

Answer: Probably because it wouldn't work. On "Mythbusters," Adam and Jamie tested whether a tracking dog could still trace a human clad in a hermetically-sealed suit to contain the scent. The dog easily tracked Jamie.
