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).
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.
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.
00:05:10 - 01:18:25
Corrected entry: At the start, Spence bumps into a guy walking towards the elevator with a coffee in his hand. In this shot, Spence doesn't look at him at all and just walks on with his head down. In the flashback where Spence remembers everything, he does look at the guy after bumping into him.
Corrected entry: The Ops team have their names on the left breast of their jackets. The Medic, however, has the word "Medic" rather than her name.
Corrected entry: In the scene with the lasers, the laser turns into a grid and cuts One up into little cubes. Problem is, the lasers came towards him, not from above. Because of this, he wouldn't have been cut from the top, and so would only have been cut into strips.
Corrected entry: J.D. was pulled into an elevator filled with a large group of rather hungry zombies that overpower him. Yet, during the Red Queen's speech about the T-Virus causing "re-animation of the body", we see J.D.'s body come back to life with mere gashes. Guess they lost their appetite?
00:45:05 - 00:58:55
Corrected entry: The only people in this film who manage one of those flawless 'instant kill' headshots are all armed with a gun that's appeared in every single Resident Evil game to date.
Corrected entry: When everyone is in the laser room, and the medic woman gets the laser through her neck, the injuries that other people got didn't bleed because the wound was cauterized, yet her neck bleeds a bit before her head falls off.
Corrected entry: In the room where the lasers attack the crew you can clearly see that on each end of the room there is an extra space that is away from the small hall where the lasers cannot reach and it is clearly enough room for them to stand and not get killed.
Corrected entry: When Kaplan and Alice are walking across the pipes in the sewer area and Kaplan falls down, Alice is pulled up, and Raine has her gun out, trying to help Kaplan. She is aiming her gun to everyone's right, and everyone was looking in that direction. When Rain yells out that she can't see, Alice takes the gun off her and shoots the zombie nearest to Kaplan, aiming the gun to everyone's LEFT, meaning that Raine was aiming in the wrong direction. Even if she couldn't focus properly, everyone was looking in the other direction, too.
Corrected entry: In the shot at the beginning of the scene where they are in dining room B, the guy wearing the handcuffs manages to get on top of a high edge and sit on it with handcuffs on ..
Corrected entry: It says this on the commentary on the DVD, but in the scene where they are on the pipes you can see the camera rail above them, but they are supposed to be made to look like pipes.
Corrected entry: While explaining the zombies, Red Queen says that human hair and nails continue to grow after death. This isn't true. What actually happens is that the skin dries out and shrivels away, making it appear that hair and nails are getting longer.
Corrected entry: The zombified people in the movie have trouble moving around (slow, rigid). The zombified dogs, however, conveniently keep all their former speed and reflexes.
Corrected entry: Several times during the train sequences, and on the schematics, we see there is only one track between the Mansion and the Hive. So on the return journey, the train should be travelling backwards, yet it is going forwards with Kaplan in the cab on both occasions. From the interior and exterior shots, you can see that it does not have a cab at both ends.
Corrected entry: In the dining hall B part of the movie, the guy fires 8 shots out of the same revolver and you can clearly see there's only 6 chambers.
Corrected entry: Alice & Matt arrive in the control room via a corridor from the office block, apparently being chased by zombies. This is a different corridor than the one Rain, Kaplan & Spence entered via. (You can see the two corridors on the heat-tracking schematic that pops up during this sequence). If that corridor was clear ahead of them, why didn't the three already trapped escape up it? If there were zombies outside that door, then Alice & Matt managed to get through them without too much trouble, so could the others.
Corrected entry: After most of the team is killed inside the chamber with the lasers, everyone else leaves, only to return to find the bodies missing. Granted, it's supposed to be creepy, but there really was no one around to take the bodies or the equipment away. The Red Queen isn't physical, the zombies would have left bones or some sort of mess, and the licker would have also left such a mess.DenizenZERO
Corrected entry: In the scene in the laser corridor, when the woman has her head sliced off, why does she look around first, and not drop when she is told to by the commander. All soldiers are trained to do any commands like 'Down' when they are said, so that they do not waste time looking around and then dying or getting hurt.
Corrected entry: During the laser cutting sequence, a blond-haired team member tries to avoid the lasers by jumping over them and gets sliced through his waist as a result. As soon as this happens he lands on his feet once, then it cuts to a shot of his face and we can see he's landing from the jump again.
Corrected entry: The leader of the team sent into The Hive has a G36 assault rifle with a grenade launcher underneath. If you look closely at the gun, it was cut in half to make it look futuristic. He holds it by the grenade launcher instead of the actual grip of the gun.
Corrected entry: When there is a slo-mo camera shot of the bullet case falling to the floor, it doesn't bounce, it just sticks to the floor.
Corrected entry: When Milla wakes up in the shower at the very beginning of the movie, she's been lying on the floor in the shower. However you can see her hair is totally dry and perfectly made up, if she had really been lying on the floor for more than few seconds, she would be covered in drops of water which would have been landing on her (even though she's not lying directly beneath the spray, she would still be covered in water, if you have a similar shower, you could try it yourself)
Corrected entry: In the scene where the group first come across the zombies, they back towards a locked door and try to hold off the attack. When they manage to open the door they are confronted by an even bigger horde of the undead and one of the marines is eaten alive. The rest manage to shut the door and go back the way they came. The problem being that they were just running away from there - where did all the zombies go?
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.Lisa Nickerson
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.DenizenZERO
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: In the scene by the elevator at the start where the woman gets stuck in the lift doors and gets decapitated you clearly can see the skyline of the city filled with other skyscrapers and it is broad daylight outside the window, yet the Hive is located underground.
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.
