Continuity mistake: When we see the extreme close up of the robotic arm picking up the blue vial, the grip is uniform and parallel to the edge of the sliver end cap on the vial. When we see the vial a second later, the arm's grip has changed and is no longer parallel or uniform on the vial. (00:02:10)

Continuity mistake: Alice wakes up at the end and is completely nude with the exception of some paper taped to her front. We see when crawls under the bed that this is the case. However as she is cocking the shotgun in the streets the wind blows open to the doctor's jacket she put on earlier, but it also shows that she is now wearing white underwear to hide her modesty in case of a mishap with the wind.

Continuity mistake: When we see a CGI map of The Hive right before the Laser Room, the 3D thermal camera reveals a very rigidly stood up human body looking through the door's small window. When the camera cuts and we actually see Alice look through the window, she's slightly bent down so her head is on window level since she's taller. It's quite possible the CGI team just didn't spend more time than necessary to move the thermal human model's limbs and kept it in an almost default T-stance position. (00:29:30)

Continuity mistake: When the elevator starts to drop from floor 10, the floor indicator says 7, but a moment later it counts down from 9. (00:06:05)

Movie Nut

Continuity mistake: When Alice and Matt run to meet up with Spencer, Kaplen, and Rain, Alice screams "Don't shoot!" and Spencer, Matt, and Alice try to close the door from the zombies. A zombie then grabs the inner part of Spencer's arm, then a shot moves showing the zombie holding onto Spencer's arm from the bottom, then back to the inner part. (00:55:45)

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Matt pulls Alice into the mansion at the beginning of the movie and the SWAT team comes through the windows, the main SWAT member pulls Alice aside and asks for her report. If you watch the scene Alice has one arm at her side and one across her chest. A split second later it shows her reflected in the eye lenses on the SWAT member's mask and Alice has her arms crossed in front of her. Another split second later they show Alice again and her arms are in the original position. (00:13:35)

Question: Is the reanimation of dead people the purpose of the virus, or an unforeseen side effect? If it's a side effect, what was the original purpose of the T-Virus?

Answer: The original virus was a "Fountain of Youth" type of thing. Reviving dead cells so the host would stay young. It was so powerful that it reanimated the dead.

Grumpy Scot

Answer: Wait, wasn't the original virus meant to control the scientists daughters genetic disease, not an eternal life serum.

Answer: Actually the T-Virus was originally meant as a cure for a genetic disorder that Dr. Ashford and James Marcus daughters suffered from. The reanimation was a side effect and James Marcus was killed by Dr. Alexander Isaacs so he could take control of it and turn it into a bio-weapon.
