Resident Evil

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 the Lasers have finished killing everyone, the EMP equipment is next to the glass wall. When Alice walks over and looks in to the corridor, it's moved. (00:32:20)

Continuity mistake: When Rain tries the door on the train and fails, we see her face and her hair has 2 strands on one side of her face. Camera changes and now she's got 1 strand. (00:16:50)

Continuity mistake: The guy states that the room is sealed and his facial expression is one of panic. Camera cuts and now he's facing a different way and his expression has changed completely. (00:05:20)

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 enters the kennel where the zombie dogs belonged to she passes a blue trolley on her left side. When it cuts from inside the room where we watch her through the window walking, she passes the same trolley again. (00:46:05)

Continuity mistake: In the beginning when Alice is wiping the mirror, you can see her mouth is open. When it cuts back to her it is closed. (00:09:00)

Mortug

Continuity mistake: On the train, just after Spence falls in, Alice takes off her wedding ring and sees on the inside: Property of Umbrella Corporation. However, after she finishes off Spence, she drops the ring next to him, and in that shot, the inside is clean; or at least the half we can see when it lies still. Such a long line would take up a lot of room on such a small ring in that size text. (00:17:45 - 01:19:05)

Continuity mistake: When Rain is under the train using her flashlight to see if she can see something the hair hanging across her face changes position between the wideshot and the close-up shot. (00:16:00)

Continuity mistake: When the SWAT team arrives at the hive, the open an elevator shaft and one of them lights a flare with 2 hands. As the camera changes, he is now holding it at arm's length and with one hand without enough time to do so. (00:23:05)

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: At the start of the film, the scientists are attempting to breach the window with an axe. Later in the same lab in the movie, Alice picks up an axe, even though it was shown before being wielded by the zombie.

Suggested correction: It's easy to miss, but there is a quick insert-shot in-between these two shots that shows the team leader crouching down suddenly. (The camera is focused on the back of his head as he ducks down suddenly.) It can be seen in this video (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rOLe15-5Xhw&t=65s) around the 1-minute mark.

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)

Continuity mistake: When Matt gets scratched by the mutated Licker at the end of the film, the scratches on his arm appear before the creature's claws actually hit him. (01:24:15)

More trivia for Resident Evil

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: 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.

lionhead

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