Final Fantasy: The Spirits Within

Sometime distant into the future, a comet has crashed into earth and on it was a bunch of aliens, who suck out your soul if they touch you. There are 2 schools of thought on how to beat them: Either collect the 7 "Spirits" (Believed by scientist Aki Ross) or blow the hell out of them (as supported by some mad General). Guess which one is right...

Continuity mistake: Right after Aki saves Gray and turns around to pick up the canister containing the plant off a table there is no table or ledge. If you watch the movie with the commentary one of the members involved with the movie says that it is floating on nothing. (00:16:50)

Trivia: Something to look for: somewhere in the film, the animators placed a Chocobo (one of those ostrich-like chicken things that people ride on in some of the Final Fantasy games). It's on the top right corner of Aki's shirt, almost the same color as the shirt, when she wakes up from her 2nd dream.

Question: The phantoms can kill with the merest touch and can reach through any material - floors, walls, aircraft fuselage etc. Why then do the soldiers bother to don heavy, clunky body armour whenever they go out to battle? They'd do just as well in T-shirts and fatigues.

Oscar Bravo

Chosen answer: The environment has become too hazardous for humans to tolerate.
