Corrected entry: The last laser that passes through is a mesh-like grid that "cubifies" the team leader. Yet, when the rest enter the room not only are the team leader's remains gone but the rest of the team and the scrambler box remain whole - despite the grid becoming mesh halfway through the room and spanning across the floor.
Corrected entry: When the woman gets her head stuck in the lift, she sees dead bodies everywhere. But when the team enters the hive, they're all gone, and it's the same place. How did the bodies move? All the doors are locked, so they couldn't have walked off.
Corrected entry: When 'One' and his team enter the laser corridor, there are 4 people. The medic gets her head cut off, another guy gets chopped in half and 'One' gets sliced n diced. But what happened to the guy who got his fingers chopped off? He only went into shock.
Corrected entry: Immediately after Kaplain shuts down main power, there is a shot of all the lights on the metal boxes in Dining Hall B going from the green "stable" to the red "unstable." The mistake comes when the team is shooting all the zombies. They shoot up several of the metal boxes and when they do, there are shots of the lights on the boxes going again from green to red.
Corrected entry: This is a small nitpick, but for the trailers for the movie, we're told that if they don't seal the mansion shut in three hours, then the whole world will be infected. In all honesty, that's not once mentioned in the movie. They had to make it out so that they could live, not so that the rest of the world wouldn't be infected, even though that turned out to be the case.
Corrected entry: If the squad knew the Red Queen was watching them, why didn't they destroy any cameras they came across in the hive? Perhaps the whole laser beam curly fry disaster could have been avoided.
Corrected entry: In the beginning, when the computer let the elevator drop (after we saw the first one fall to the floor), why did it bother to stop it for no reason whatsoever after it's only fallen 10 feet?
Corrected entry: The T-Virus escapes through the air vent and spreads throughout the entire building, so the air vents must go all over. Later water floods the labs, all of which have air vents, so the rooms shouldn't have filled with water, it should have poured through the air vents and spread throughout the building.
Corrected entry: The T-Virus is being developed as a biological weapon. The virus doesn't kick into effect unless someone is wounded or dead, and even then it resurrects them as the "living dead". Those that are living and are exposed to the virus without treatment are perfectly fine for a good length of time before mutation into the "Nemesis", allowing ample time for retaliation. Not the best weapon around.
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.
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?
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?
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.
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.
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? (00:02:45)
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: What keeps the zombies from eating each other?
Corrected entry: The worker who gets coffee spilled on him says "thank you" differently during Spence's Flashback.
