Corrected entry: If Jim and the others are in such a hurry to reach Manchester that they make the choice to use a dangerous, unlighted tunnel out of the city rather than a much safer, but more circuitous bridge route, why do they stop later that same day for a picnic and waste so much time that they have to spend the night at the picnic site?
Corrected entry: If one of the soldiers told Jim later on that the head soldier lied and that the virus never left the island, why didn't they just go searching for a boat to get to civilization, especially since they were desperate for women and only men were coming to the shelter (the piles of dead bodies at the place they took to try and execute Jim)?fan before the site
Corrected entry: The Captain promises his troops women because one soldier was going to shoot himself and overall morale was low. It has only been 28 days. The little girl lasted as long holed up in an small apartment with only her Dad to talk to. This is an operational outpost with defenses against attack, hot showers, ample food and water, electricity, and about 8 other guys to talk to. Just how weak are these soldiers?
Corrected entry: When they got to the shelter, the head soldier told them the virus wiped out Paris and New York. There is no way the virus can travel overseas. If an infected person could get on a plane (unlikely, given the very rapid effect), he/she would attack everyone and the plane would go down.fan before the site
Corrected entry: The eventual outcome is that the infected are wiped out because they do not eat. This is indicated at the end of the film (56 days later) and a statement by Christopher Eccleston. It makes no sense that the infected are so possessed with rage that they have enough sense to drink and not to eat. Dehydration would wipe them out in a week. Perhaps 7 days later is not a good title?
Corrected entry: Near the end of the film when Jim is running back to save his friends, he seems to run freely past the field full of mines that the army planted. How did he know exactly where they all were without setting off the floodlights or an explosion?
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: 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: To continue on the same note: the contaminated young little boy in the hamburger cafe screams 'I hate you' 'I hate you' as he attacks the main character. None of the other contaminants in the whole film (as far as I'm aware) speaks. They all growl like a mad dog. (00:51:55)
Corrected entry: The idea of the film is that everyone's been infected with a disease. Will someone please tell me why there aren't any cars on the motorway? I know everyone got infected, but does that give them the ability to park their cars at home? It's impossible for a motorway to be empty. There are always cars on them, so there should be cars on the motorway in this film---though they would most likely be abandoned or trashed.
Corrected entry: Near the end, Jim and the girls break out of the army safe-house by ramming the gate in the taxi. They hit it with such force that they are thrown across the cab. But in the next scene we see the cab outside the cottage and there isn't a even a scratch on the front of the car.
Corrected entry: In the first bit of the film, when Jim is wandering through a London apparently emptied by a killer virus, there is a shot of him walking up the street away from the Houses of Parliament. Unfortunately, as well as him, you can clearly see a black-clad figure walking much further up the road in the distance. It's impossible to imagine that Jim wouldn't see this survivor, or be seen by him/her and try to find out what's going on.
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
