* ShownTheirWork: While there are quite a few science and physics gaffes, things such as counter-spinning artificial gravity rings for the ship are signs of better-than average technical consulting. There's also the time delay between Earth to Mars communications that's used to dramatic advantage.

* AIIsACrapshoot: AMEE(Autonomous Mapping Exploration and Evasion). It's not really her fault, however - who leaves military combat software on a robot on a civilian mission? All it took was a few hard bumps and she was back in combat mode. Averted with Lucy, though.

* PsychologicalHorror: Very arguable, but much of the horror elements of the film is due to the thought of being abandoned on Mars while running out of oxygen. [[spoiler: The killer robot plot doesn't kick in until after the halfway mark in the movie.]]

* ArtisticLicenseBiology: The explanation of the origin of [[spoiler: the bugs]] and how they function.
** Actually, it's never explained.

** [[CrazyPrepared Well]], ''[[CrazyPrepared something]]'' [[CrazyPrepared happened to the algae.]]
** Justified, as the robot was suppose to be used as a navigator on the planet, which was also its primary function and programming. All the rest was self-defense mechanism, which is more than expected from military-grade navigation robot. Also, it's stated almost from the start that the mission was made in haste, not allowing even to fully test the whole ship, not to mention creating purposefully build civilian all terrain navigation system, when military could simply give one.



** Bordering FridgeBrilliance for design of suit meant for exploration of planet on which only unnatural light sources are suppose to come from exploring team.



* SuperPoweredRobotMeterMaids: AMEE is pretty deadly for a scouting robot, isn't she? Justified in that she was originally a ''military'' scouting robot; pretty much all of her lethality is the result of programming.
