Factual errors 

Much is made of the importance of the buoyancy balloons when crossing the seaweed. Yet they are not large enough to do much good, they don't float upwards, or need to be tied down when not in use, and near the end of the film they are not needed anyway.

Revealing mistakes 

When Unity and Harry are in the bar after getting back in the ship, she makes Harry a drink. When he sips it and realizes it contains alcohol, the glass is nearly full. When he throws the glass towards the bar in a rage, the glass is completely empty.

At the beginning of the film the captain performs the eulogy for El Supremo and they then bury him at sea. On top of the wrapped body lies a sword. Ss they tilt the body the sword falls towards the water. As the body hits the water there is no sign of the sword at all or the splash ripples it would have caused.

The containers of Phosphor B appear empty (considering how easy they are to lift and how they wobble when jostled)

Plot holes 

When the people walk from the ship to the island, the floating weeds make a solid mass underfoot. And yet when they return to the ship, suddenly most of the weeds are gone and there is much open water, enough for them to take the the raft all the way back.

The ship is trapped by weeds wrapped around the propellers, and the captain says that since they have no diving suit, the only way to cut free would be for someone to go down with no protection; which of course would mean that person would be killed by the weeds. But in the final scene we see the ship moving on its own, even though we haven't seen any way the weed has been removed from the propellers.
