Corrected entry: At the beginning of the film during the first shot of the Westminster bridge(showing the side of the bridge and the city) everything is completely still. However, just under the center of the bridge, on the path, you can visibly see a bicyclist ride by between the white boats.mb2806
Corrected entry: If the rage virus takes hold of people within seconds, then how is it possible for the virus to spread to other towns, cities, etc? It couldn't, unless people could still drive, or walk long distances.
Corrected entry: At the mansion, the British Army have laced the surrounding area with land mines. The problem is, the British Army do not use or have access to land mines due to the International Banning of Land Mines. The two significant militaries (that is, militaries that would be able to help the British) that use them are the Chinese and the U.S Army; but there is no mention of either of these forces.
Corrected entry: At the end we are left with the question of the pilot's intentions, and what happened. Is he going to help them, or pull an about-face and machine-gun them down thinking they're infected? That question is actually answered. The pilot is speaking Finnish, and he says into the radio "Can you please send a helicopter?" Looks like he was actually helping them after all, and there is still some civilization (or at least people with radios and helicopters).
Corrected entry: Watch the scene where Jim, Selena, Frank and Hannah spend the night at the ruins. After Jim's nightmare the group gets back in their taxi and continues their journey to the 42nd blockade. The last shot in this scene is of the taxi driving away and we hear Frank saying 'Door' to Jim. After this there are a series of shots of the taxi driving down the motorway. Watch the 2nd shot closely; as the taxi moves past the screen look at the back passenger window where either Selena or Hannah should be sitting. You will see a person with long red hair and a white top. It can't be Selena for obvious reasons and Hannah doesn't have ginger hair or a white top.
Corrected entry: Britain is a Nuclear Power. As soon as the UK Government "lost control" of its nuclear weapons, it is a safe bet that a large chunk of the US Navy would have been sitting off the coast to prevent any weapons falling in to the wrong hands. While the exact capabilities of their Electronic Warefare Ships is classified, if a taxi driver in London could pick up the Majors signal, they certainly would too.
Corrected entry: When Frank and Jim are on the rooftop and Frank is talking about collecting rainwater, you can see covered containers among the receptacles. You won't collect too much rainwater with a covered plastic box. (00:39:00)
Corrected entry: When Jim is in the boiler room with the other soldier waiting to be executed, the soldier is talking about infection not being able to cross the oceans and seas. This is later proved to be the case when we see the fighter jet scouting the area. One problem with that. There is, however, a way for infection to cross the sea. Euro Tunnel was built before the movie came out, and it connects England to France. The infected could have run through that, and there goes Europe. Since the tunnel was a means of escape, people would try to use that to get out of England and not destroy it. Even if someone had thought about destroying the tunnel one of the key points of the movie was that people were caught off-guard by infection, so they couldn't have. There wouldn't be time to destroy it.
Corrected entry: In the scene where Frank and Jim are on the roof of Frank's apartment all the buckets are empty because it has been so dry (10 days since the last rain according to Frank). This lack of rain is a major reason they choose to head out for the military base. Yet in the next scene, taking place shortly after the roof scene, they drive out of the garage directly onto a very wet street. The chances that it rained and then stopped in the hour or so between the roof scene and driving scene seems pretty slim given the drought situation.
Corrected entry: In the closing minutes of the film, the Infected begin to starve to death as some of the characters predicted. But wouldn't they have died of thirst within three or four days of being infected (especially through using so much energy), rather than several weeks by starvation?
Corrected entry: Jim takes a very curious route to get from St Thomas' Hospital (where he wakes up) to Piccadilly Circus (where he reads the messages that have been stuck up on the hoarding). He gets there by going past the Bank of England - a detour of at least a couple of miles.
Corrected entry: During the course of the movie, the characters kill the infected by beating them to death with machetes, bats and things of that nature which seems like a pretty dangerous way to kill people who have a blood infection. Shouldn't they be shooting from far away like the soldiers did?
Corrected entry: At the end of the film when the plane flies over the British countryside, there is a shot of two infected people dying of starvation. The first one seen is lacking the telltale red eyes. (01:41:35)
Corrected entry: They leave Hannah and Frank's flat in Canary Wharf, drive through the Blackwall Tunnel going South and get to the north of England without crossing the river again. Manchester is north of the River Thames, as is the flat - they have no need to cross the river and go completely the wrong way yet still get near Manchester. (00:41:15)
Corrected entry: The jet flying by in the last scene has not been in service for decades. It's a vintage 1950's collector's item.
