    1. Based on the final scene vs reality, were we to believe that all of that action in the movie happened on Liberty Island?

    2. If the movie didn't take place on Liberty Island, how did the statue end up on a mainland beach?

    3. If the statue didn't somehow tumble and float to a mainland beach, was there a massive amount of water loss? Enough loss to expose a sea bead?

    Someone here must have a logical explanation about this.

    Fun fact:

    The girl Steve Buscemi was flirting with at the bar was Amanda from Saw 1 through 3

    it would have completely corroded away in that time, so I have problems even entertaining your hypothetical because the whole thing had no plausibility

    I just assumed that the landscape got massively reworked due continued nuclear bombs and/or the passage of time and water. But your exploding traveling liberty head idea has merit too, and might better explain where the hell the rest of the body went.

    Sooo the time travel, worm holes, talkng apes and Charlton Heston's acting you had zero trouble with, but you're bothered by a possible geographic inconsistency.

    Gotcha.

    Since the inland(forbidden zone) is desert there would be high erosion. Sediment in the Hudson would build up and change the rivers course several times over the centuries.

    Once again, off-topic trolling.

    Oh, wait. Let me guess: you don't like the thread topic, so you're going to disrupt and derail it, right?


    Topic?

    Perhaps the Statue got there after some type of natural disaster.
