Corrected entry: Why didn't Umbrella's higher ups just ask Red Queen what happened before sending in an assault team? She could have told them the T-virus was released and the hive would have stayed sealed. Instead, they just assumed she was nuts and sent in people to shut her down! Had even one of them said, "What happened?", the zombies would have never been released - it's a plot hammer that contradicts the whole point of having an AI run the hive. There should have been a line that said something like "All attempts to communicate with Red Queen so far have failed. The whole point of an AI that has the capability to seal the Hive is to keep the virus from escaping! Her refusal to communcate guarantees that the hive will be breached by a team that is investigating.Grumpy Scot
Corrected entry: Red Queen is extremely conveniently programmed for the plot of the movie. 1. Rather than seal off rooms in a place she has TOTAL control of, (that by the way is designed to be isolated in sections for this very reason), she lets the infection spread to everybody in the Hive. She could have easily contained it in a small section of the facility. This is standard procedure in ANY biowarfare lab, there is no way she wouldn't be programmed to do it. 2. Rather than let everyone know the virus is loose, she just starts killing everyone. She had counter-virus available, why not let everyone know that they are locked in with the virus, but help is coming? The infected personnel would be hit with it only minutes after infection. If it didn't work and they died, they are still locked in. 3. Instead of calling Umbrella and telling them the virus is loose, she clams up and just slaughters everyone. This guarantees that Umbrella will ignore anything she has to say, and breach the Hive with a response team and release the virus, the very thing she is programmed to prevent. 4. When Kaplan is disabling her, she keeps telling him that it's a bad idea, but doesn't bother to let him know that shutting her down will release hordes of flesh-eating killers. 5. She just assumes that Spence, no matter how he got in to the T-virus storage has clearance to stuff it all in a duffel bag and walk out with it. She could have locked him in and double-checked with Umbrella. 6. The entire reason for her existence is to prevent the virus from escaping, while almost every decision she makes greatly increases the chances it will get out of the Hive. This is way beyond bad programming - this is highly advanced AI doing the exact opposite of what she's designed for.Grumpy Scot
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.
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
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
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
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
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?
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.
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.
Corrected entry: If the zombies have "virtually no intelligence", then how can they walk, or carry axes with them?
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).
