Resident Evil

Corrected entry: When the man in the suit lifts the blue test tube at the start of the film, he lifts them vertically, but in the next shot, they're at 45 degrees.

xx:xx:xx

Correction: The man in the suit has the ability to move the mechanical arms, there is enough time time off screen to move the arms to show the vial at 45°. Also, the grip by the black pincers is the same when he lifts the tube up, and when we see it at 45°, indicating that the arms have been moved to position the vial at that angle.

Corrected entry: In the passage to the Queen's chamber when the laser is coming towards the woman standing, you can see she is looking towards it. A second later she turns her head towards it again.

Correction: She is looking at the door where Alice is. She turns her head towards the laser when One yells for everyone to get down.

Corrected entry: Spence and Alice are charged with making sure no one without proper clearance gets into the Hive. Why then does Spence have the clearance to get into the Hive's most secret and secure area, the T-virus storage? Does a bank guard at the door have the combination to the vault? Can the guard in the entrance of a missile silo launch a missile? Of course not. There is no reason for him to have access that deep into the Hive. And while he may have bought the codes to get in, why does no one in the most secure facility in the world give him a second glance? Did he buy off every security guard and Red Queen as well?

Grumpy Scot

Correction: It is never mentioned that they don't have access to the hive. Comparing them to bank guards or silo guards is a moot point. This is a highly classified government facility. There is no law that says they cannot give them access to the inside of the hive.

lartaker1975

Corrected entry: In the beginning, the people are trapped in the elevator. The woman tried to squeeze out to get help, and a long piece of hair hangs down. As the car drops, the hair hangs out at an angle, the same angle as when the car stops, and her head is inches above the floor. Gravity defying hair?

Movie Nut

Correction: Not gravity defying hair, gravity defying hair product. There's so much styling product in her hair that it's too fixed in place to fall straight down. Similar effect can be seen when a man's comb-over stands straight up in a crosswind instead of blowing out to the side.

Corrected entry: When the code is entered for the door after the first zombie fight, the guy entering it says "got it". His lips aren't in sync with the words.

Life700

Correction: If you watch and listen carefully, you'll notice JD is mouthing the word "five", the last number he typed in. The words "Got it" are a question asked by Spence, who is off camera.

Corrected entry: Just after Alice escapes from the zombie dogs, Rain is shown counting her ammunition. She says, 'I have one in the breach and another magazine.' However you can see that the slide on her pistol has locked back (it doesn't return to the home position) meaning the chamber is actually empty.

Nik Rolls

Correction: While this is true, you can see (and hear) her inserting the magazine into the gun. Making what she said in fact true as well.

THGhost

Corrected entry: When Alice awakens in what looks like a stainless steel bin, there is a long scratch on her right shoulder. Throughout the rest of the movie, the scratch is seen on her left shoulder.

xx:xx:xx

Correction: The scar actually is on her left shoulder throughout the movie, but in the beginning, when the scar is emphasised, she is looking at it in the mirror, thus making it look like being on her right.The stainless steel bin looks more like a sophisticated sort of shower to me, by the way.

Corrected entry: When Alice has the mutated licker's tongue trapped in the metal grate with a pipe, the trapdoors are opened and the licker is electrocuted on the traintrack. Miraculously, Alice can hold onto the metal pipe attached to the licker's tongue without being electrocuted also.

inkydragon

Correction: The train has a single middle rail as power supply. This makes it likely the other required pole are the rails the train is driving on. (This is how it works for normal electrical trains too.) Under this reasonable assumption the licker is electrocuted because he touches the middle rail as well as (one of) the driving rails and the current flows between the first and the latter. Then there is no reason, why Alice, standing on the train and thus having a much higher resistance between the two rails should be electrocuted.

Corrected entry: In the first scene, the man in the suit wears a surgical mask over the lower half of his face. When Spence remembers it later, he wears no mask under the suit.

xx:xx:xx

Phoenix

Correction: They most likely showed Spence without the mask in the flashback as a visual confirmation that it was indeed Spence in the suit. And probably also to show that it was him acting alone since Milla's character couldn't remember if it was herself who had betrayed Lisa.

Corrected entry: At the start of the movie the suit guy carrying his coffee gets bumped into from the back of his right shoulder, causing to spill his coffee over his shirt.When Spence is having his flashback and starting to remember things you see him bump into the suit guy from the back of his left shoulder.

Foff44

Correction: We saw it the way it happened the first time, then we saw it the way Spence remembered it the second time. No one's memories are flawless, especially if they're just recovering them after having been hit with amnesia-inducing gas.

Phixius Premium member

Corrected entry: Surely in rooms where lethal viruses are handled and stored, even in outer rooms, you wouldn't have a ventilation system connected to the rest of the facility?

xx:xx:xx

Correction: The entire facility is under the control of the "Red Queen" computer program, who is the one responsible for killing everyone to prevent the infection from leaving. It's very likely she was able to shut down/manipulate the ventilation system to send the air flow to other parts of the Hive.

Jazetopher

Corrected entry: In the laser corridor scene, the laser grid that kills One (the captain) is also assumed to have killed the soldier that had his fingers sliced off. If that's the case, then why is the gear that they brought with them inside the corridor intact? It should have been destroyed with the soldiers.

Correction: The laser grid that kills the captain is shut off by the other team member just as it finishes passing through his body, thus leaving the equipment intact.

Jazetopher

Corrected entry: In the scene where the soldier gets killed by the grid of lasers you can see his body fragments falling to the ground in the reflection on the door, but they don't match the sounds of the fragments hitting the ground.

Correction: While it's true that the sound does not match the falling chunks we *see*, we do not however see the rest of his body, so the sound could be of pieces of his arms, and legs falling off etc.

Corrected entry: If the zombies have "virtually no intelligence", then how can they walk, or carry axes with them?

Correction: It is actually stated by the Red Queen herself that the undead have the simplest of motor functions. You don't have to be intelligent to know how to walk.

Sparky6640

Corrected entry: What keeps the zombies from eating each other?

Correction: Resident Evil's zombies crave fresh, living meat, not the putrefying meat of other corpses. They're motivated to attack by hunger, so they only attack living things that look and smell appetizing. This is why JD is mostly intact even though he was in an elevator full of zombies - after they bit off enough to kill him they stopped eating him.

Phoenix

Corrected entry: The worker who gets coffee spilled on him says "thank you" differently during Spence's Flashback.

Correction: Spence is not going to remember it exactly as it happened. Like in any flashback, you won't remember every detail exactly as it was.

Lummie Premium member

Corrected entry: When Milla is fighting the dogs, and the camera pans across their faces, it's obvious that computer effects were used to make the dogs appear to have missing parts (ie. sections of ears, throats, etc. since the real dogs used in the scene would not have such extensive injuries).

Correction: Computer effects or not, these dogs are zombies. They look dead, weird and artificial. There is nothing obvious or revealing with the special effects in this scene.

Mortug Premium member

Corrected entry: Just after Rain wraps her hand from the zombie bite, the team picks up their guns and heads around a corner in the Hive. Look closely at Rain's gun hand - the bandage she just put on is gone...then back again within one camera shot.

Correction: She has her bandage on all the time. The bandage is wrapped in a way that the camera angle sometimes misses it.

Mortug Premium member

Corrected entry: In the laser room on the way to the Red Queen, a female soldier loses her head. This happens while she stands on the right side of the corridor. Later, when you see the dead bodies lying on the floor, she lies on the left side.

Correction: If you look closely she is still lying on the right side of the corridor.

Mortug Premium member

Corrected entry: At the beginning when the experiment room is being flooded, you see one guy take the axe to try and break the window. Later when he is a zombie you see he has it in his hand. Towards the end of the movie you see Rain take the axe out of the holder in the same room. You know it's the same room because the female scientist is still there and it's the same room the broken virus was in.

xx:xx:xx

Correction: The male scientist got the axe from a sliding cupboard door. Rain (Michelle Rodriquez) got her axe from a different cupboard which looks like there's a small gas tank next to it and the door to the cupboard has hinges.

Mistakes

Near the beginning of the movie, Milla Jovovich reads a note that has been left on the desk. She didn't write it, as they demonstrate in the film. However, when they do show the person who wrote the note composing it, the handwriting is different from that in the note from the earlier scene.

Trivia

The picture on the computer of the hive looks like an upside down umbrella and the name of the corporation who own the hive is ... the Umbrella corporation.
