** There are too many instances to count where individuals are standing directly on the other side of concrete barriers redirecting and holding back lava. In real life, low-viscosity lava of this type is around 1,500-1,800 degrees Farenheit, and will cause anything flammable within about ten feet to spontaneously combust. Even firefighting gear is only rated for protection up to about 600 degrees Farenheit.

** In some scenes lava represents no threat to anything it isn't directly touching. Even if you're directly above it and a few feet away, inside or on top of a metal vehicle that is actually melting in the heat. Then in another scene, Roark, 10 feet above a lava flow, can't even hold his hand over it for more than a second without great pain(which is what it would be like in real life.)
** In another scene the main character has to get away from the heat emanating lava 10 meters below a manhole. Basically convection that works by the RuleOfCool.

** Things that are dropped on or in a lava flow don't ''sink''. Yes, the lava is red-hot and yes it will melt metal or consume other matter, but despite being liquid, it is still ''rock'' and just as dense as that word implies.
** Possibly the most egregious example is whenever there's shots of the lava actually erupting from the nascent Mount Wilshire: the pretty splashing and high arcing of the very liquid lava is stock footage of Hawaiian volcanic activity, which only occurs in Hawaii.

implies. Ironically, the scene where Roark blocks the lava with k-rails averts this, as its shown that the several foot deep river of lava has enough mass to slightly push back the concrete berms and the fire trucks keeping them in place. Which it would, since it's probably several dozen tons.

* SoftGlass: Immediately following an ItsQuietTooQuiet / OhCrap scene where the roar of seismic and volcanic activity suddenly stops, there is an explosion that results in the windows of all the surrounding buildings getting blown out. The glass from this visibly (and hilariously) strikes Jaye directly in the face, as well as showering Mike. They both shake it off like they wouldn't have been cut to shreds.

** The weirdest example was the death of Stan, jumping into a lava flow to save a life (See HeroicSacrifice). He didn't simply burst into flame and vaporize when he hits the lava; he ''[[ImMelting melts]]''. Guy had a skeleton of titanium, and it still didn't save him. Neither did his ability to stand five feet above molten lava unscathed as a ''subway car'' melts around him.

** Given she is the assistant to doctorate geologist Amy, you would expect Rachel to know a thing or two about rocks and volcanoes. Rachel even backs Amy's theory about volcanic activity being a culprit regarding the death for seven men in an underground tunnel. Yet, while they investigate ''that very tunnel'', Rachel decides to straddle a large crack surrounded by sulfur residue. [[WhatCouldPossiblyGoWrong What could possibly go wrong?]]

** Averted with Roark, who sees an honest-to-God volcano develop right in his home town and ''explicitly refuses to evacuate'', instead preferring to [[HonorBeforeReason fight it]]. This would be a straight example... except the movie ''[[ArtisticLicensePhysics agrees with him]]''.
