Battleship - Taylor Kitsch (2012) - Tian Tan Buddha, Lantau...or not?

As the crashed spaceship heads into Earth's atmosphere it plummets towards Hong Kong and, on the way, passes the famous big Buddha on Lantau Island. The thing is the film makers decided that this shot would only work if they superimposed the Buddha on to Hong Kong Island instead. So, what we end up with is a composite of both places giving the impression that the Buddha towers over Victoria Peak and the Harbour when in reality it's located about 25 kilometres away to the west.
