Day of the Dead

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Captain Rhodes is first introduced. Initially, his captain insignia is horizontal (correctly). After a few shots in the same scene, his rank is now vertical.

Continuity mistake: When Miguel opens the gate a herd of zombies come in. Later, when some zombies come from the bunker where they kept the specimens, several of the zombies are the same, and an obvious one is a kid in a football uniform. The zombies in the bunker had no way out, so how could the zombies be in two places at once?

Continuity mistake: At the climax of the film when the military guy shoots himself through the mouth to avoid being eaten alive, the closeup shot of him killing himself leaves a huge spatter against the wall he is in front of. In the next shot where he is falling to the ground, the fresh blood splatter is gone (or, at least, very less apparent). (01:30:25)

Revealing mistake: In the very beginning when we are flying over the dead town in a helicopter, look closely at one of the very first shots of the "empty" city. On one of the left side streets you can see a car driving down the road. It's not a character mistake because she is looking hard out the window and should have spotted the moving car.

John: You want to put some kind of explanation down here before you leave? Here's one as good as any you're likely to find. We're bein' punished by the Creator. He visited a curse on us. So that man could look at... what Hell was like. Maybe He didn't want to see us blow ourselves up, put a big hole in the sky. Maybe He just wanted to show us He's still the Boss Man. Maybe He figure, we was gettin' too big for our britches, tryin' to figure His shit out.
