* A minor one, but the king mentions that once Kida would have slain the trespassers on sight. How does he know?

** Confirmed by WordOfGod, who thought they didn't make this apparent enough.

* In regards to Rourke having the missing page from the Shepherd's Journal the whole time, listen to what he says when he first meets Milo: "See you've got the journal there. Nice pictures." He not only read the journal, but saw that missing page. He must've had it since Iceland.

* When the toddler Kida loses her toy at the beginning of the movie, as they flee the incoming destruction, her mother says not to go back to get it because there's no time. She ''kneels on the ground'', calmly and slowly explains this to her daughter, and takes several more seconds than it would have taken for Kida to actually dash back and grab her toy. She prioritizes reassuring her daughter because she knows this may be goodbye.

* Why are the fireflies near the bridge more aggressive than the ones in Atlantis? [[spoiler: Because the fireflies in Atlantis are in closer approximation to the crystal, making them significantly more benign.]]

* Milo tells Mr. Whitmore that he would stake everything he owns that the Shepherd's Journal is the real thing. When you learn Mr. Whitmore had Milo's stuff in storage before he even agreed to find Atlantis, it turns out this is true. If Milo had RefusedTheCall, he would've returned to an empty home where his stuff was packed away.

* At first, one wonders [[FridgeLogic how the King of Atlantis knew that Rourke had a weapon on him]]. But then later, you learn [[spoiler: the king had long ago tried to harness the crystal as a weapon. He knew Rourke brought weapons because in his position, he would've brought them too. Crosses into FridgeHorror once it dawns on you that Rourke is the king's ShadowArchetype to some extent.]]

** His death is meant to signify what's at stake for the rest of the Atlanteans if the crystal isn't returned.



* When Milo gives his "it's all about money, huh?" chastisement, all of his friends are in the middle of leaving him behind in Atlantis to die with the Atlanteans, and are subsequently convinced to instead do the right thing because of his speech. They're seen actively changing their minds and walking over to stand with Milo. Except for Sweet. As seen, only moments later, Sweet has been inside the palace tending to the dying king, not among the other mercenaries even though he had originally been part of their plan. The crew was clearly only seconds from driving away before being convinced by Milo, so it can be assumed that they fully intended to leave Sweet behind too. Which can only mean that Sweet had a HeelFaceTurn even ''before'' Milo's speech, most likely right when Rourke punched the king and he immediately tried to help him, saying, "This was not part of the plan." All it took was hurting one defenseless old man to make him forget all about the countless riches he could have had, his nature as a doctor prevailing over all. And that's awesome.

* It seems strange that the Atlanteans can speak just about every language under the sun and then some, but can't read their own. However, when a human learns their primary language, it's spoken first, and reading comes later. The king notes that Atlantis was at war with other countries, implying that other languages had developed even before Atlantis sank. Among the crystals' blessings seems to be a preservation of mind, given that 8000 years would take its toll on a human mind. Taking into account the arguments on reading a couple sections down, it's possible that the crystals have preserved their knowledge of spoken language, but lack of using the written language has caused those skills to atrophy.


Added DiffLines:

** Given Vinny's KirkSummation to Rourke, and Milo's attitude when he calls Rourke a mercenary, it's entirely possible that's just an insult. The majority of the group seems to be glorified thieves rather than actual guns for hire.
