28 Days Later

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.


Correction: And why shouldn't there be a bicyclist? People are still alive out there, and traveling by bike would certainly be much safer than going on foot.

Corrected entry: There is a shot when they are driving the taxi from London to Manchester and it shows them on a 2 lane dual carriageway with wind turbines in the background. This shot is on the A30 near Truro, Cornwall (I drive it every day).


Correction: Locations in films are very frequently used that do not correspond with where they're supposed to be. Unless something actually appears on-screen that would indicate to a viewer with no knowledge of the area that the location in question is not what it claims (say, in this example, a roadsign for Truro), then this cannot be considered a mistake.

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.

Correction: Why not? There's nothing to suggest that people infected stay in the same town they were infected in. In fact, the sheer lack of people in London at the start of the film (there are a lot of infected there, but not the millions of people who actually live in London, especially taking into account refugees from other parts of the country) strongly suggests that the infected disperse quite widely. The attack on the mansion later in the film also shows that the infected roam around the countryside.

Gary O'Reilly

Corrected entry: The film was apparently filmed entirely using a DV cam because of its small budget ($8 million).


Correction: This was actually done to provide a more realistic feel, instead of the smoothness of a real movie camera. Whether budget entered into it, I know not, but if you watch the making of the film, this is what they say.

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.

Correction: In the 28 days since the Infection broke out, US or Chinese forces could have lent aid, including land mines, then pulled out once it was obvious that the situation was out of control.

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).

Correction: By the end, the audience knows the helicoptor is there to rescue the people, not destroy them; they have made a huge sign saying HELLO and are waving and calling, something the infected wouldn't do.

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.

Correction: It's not Hannah, and as you said, obviously not Selena. It's luggage that has been moved from the trunk (boot) to the inside of the car, and is likely a white shirt, and something red, like a jacket, hanging from a hook inside the car.

Corrected entry: Watch the window carefully at the final climactic battle/escape in the film, inside the army outfit's mansion. There is a quick shot (which requires using the forward button in slow motion) of the rain "falling" upwards as the shot reverses. Simple editing error.


Correction: The rules of this site are quite straightforward - if you have to use slow motion to spot a 'mistake', it is invalid.

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.

Correction: Yes, but not instantaneously. It would likely take just a little while to get there, plus you have to consider that the transmission was picked up on a radio. Just because the Majors signal was out there does not mean it will be found, especially if the US military isn't looking for it. I am sure they would be a lot of other procedures to go through before scanning radio stations for a hidden signal.


Corrected entry: When someone is in a coma for 28 days, the hospital would have AT LEAST have catheterized said person, however when Jim wakes up in the hospital he is not attached to anything but an IV.


Correction: What happened when Jim was admitted is never revealed. Being that there is nothing to show what happened when he was admitted its impossible to say certain procedures would have been followed or more simply the hospital might have not undertaken them. More importantly we don't know when the virus hit certain areas. In addition Jim was taken in around the time the virus was first starting to spread and hospitals would be the most likely place someone infected would be taken to so many working or staying there would have been the first to have been infected. With that scenario the staff at the hospital might have neglected some of their patients because of how quickly the virus spread.

Lummie Premium member

If the hospitals would have been some of the first infection sites, why would Jim have survived the entire 28 days? I doubt someone was refilling his IV on a regular schedule if the patients are becoming violent animals, which would suggest he would have died of dehydration before starvation would have gotten to him. Also, why would those infected ignore Jim while he was comatose? Would it not be 'sporting'? Given how instinctual they seem to become I don't see how comatose would be any different from intoxicated or deeply asleep. Did all of those sorts avoid infection as well?

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)

Correction: He covers the containers between showers to prevent them from evaporating. You won't collect much rainwater if you let it evaporate away.


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.

Correction: The soldier also says something to the effect that the rest of Europe would quarantine England rather than risk infection. We know that England knew the infection was going on (rather than being overrun before being able to react), we know that at least some places put up resistance, and it's highly likely that other countries were trying to help with rescue efforts (the prime minster and his cabinet, as well as the Royal family, and anyone else they could get). The Channel Tunnel isn't something you could run through in a few minutes, and it's likely that London was one of the last places to fall (after all, it's the capital). France probably blocked up the tunnel as soon as the nature of the infection was realised. They wouldn't need to destroy it, just a 3ft concrete wall at their end of it, with soldiers posted as guards.

Gary O'Reilly

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.

Correction: It is actually possible for rain to be that quick. Living in Brisbane, we sometimes have quick rain pockets where it can rain and make the paths and roads wet in a matter of minutes and then go back to being either overcast or even sunny. In the scene when they are on the roof it is very overcast so there is a goood possibility there may have been a quick downpour before they left.

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?

Correction: The infected don't live the whole 56 days, just as Jim is not in the coma for the whole 28 days. The first generation of zombies infect the second generation during the initial panic. The second generation arises and hunts any survivors, receiving hydration and nutrition from their blood and flesh. Fewer third-generation infected arise because there are fewer hosts for the virus in the area, and there is an even smaller fourth generation and so on. Therefore, though the first generation would have long since died, the newer generations can extend the threat of infected because they have become infected relatively recently.


Where is it stated that they devour survivors? Or are a few bits from biting each person enough to sustain them?

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.

Correction: I don't see how this is a mistake - he's alone and wandering without any clear idea of where he's going, so there's no problem with traveling in curves or zigzags rather than straight lines.


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?

Correction: The UK has very strong gun control laws. The civilian characters simply don't have access to guns.


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)

Correction: No, but he does have white eyes, suggesting that when the infected starve and therefore die their eyes change colour.

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)

Correction: Canary Wharf is an office block, so it is unlikely that Frank and Hannah could live there. Therefore it could be possible that their flat was south of the river.

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.

Correction: Perhaps this was the only technology available to whoever was flying it. After all, we don't KNOW what else was happening around the world throughout the film; that's part of the point of it. Who knows what's been going on?


What plane was it I'm trying to figure out?

Corrected entry: 28 days later is a matter a fact a sequel to a film called J"Primate" about how the infection began with the monkeys. When 28 weeks later is released next year, it will actually be a trilogy, though not many people know about the first movie.


Correction: I can't find any film called Jprimate, or anything relevant called "primate", for that matter. IMDb link or other verification?

Corrected entry: "28 Days Later" was actually a bigger box office hit in the United States than England itself, where the story took place.


Correction: Not trivia - almost everything's a bigger hit in the US, due to the vast size difference between the two countries.

Corrected entry: How come the whole of London has been trashed, but the four central characters come across a branch of Budgens where the shelves are stocked fully and in perfect order? Is this a comment on no one going to Budgens? (In which case why hasn't the company sued the film makers for libel?) (00:45:20)

Correction: We can assume that the infected run around London with one objective: find someone & attack them. The people in the supermarket would keep out of the way of someone coming down the road looking to maim & kill; so unless the infected saw someone in the shop, there'd be no reason for them to try to get in there.

Corrected entry: After coming out of his coma, Jim is walking around what is supposed to be a deserted London. But while he's walking down the street you can see people off in the distance, on the far right of the screen moving back and forth watching the filming. (00:09:35)

Correction: I have watched that particular scene lots of times and there is no one there, only lamp posts.


Corrected entry: Aeroplanes fly over England the whole time - particularly over London. So why is it that Jim only notices one when he's lying in the wood near Manchester - several days after he has woken up?

Correction: Not many aeroplanes are flying since the world is supposedly infected. Only a few fly around, and Jim happens to see it. Notice that at the end, the plane is in fact a military jet.

Corrected entry: If someone wakes up from a coma after 28 days, they wouldn't just stand up and walk away. In fact they would have tremendous problems getting up and would probably collapse. (00:06:45)

Correction: This applies to all mistakes regarding Jim's coma. There is no indication at any time that it lasted the entire 28 days. It is conceivable that he went into the coma maybe a week before the story begins, obviously after the epidemic started but before it could cause widespread havoc and evacuation in London, and at the time he went under reports had been coming in but the true nature was not known so life was continuing as normal, or close.

So he had to be informed of the state of the country via exposition dump because...?

Corrected entry: When Jim shoots infected Mailer's chain to free him Mailer stands there a bit just staring at him. Wouldn't a infected who's in blind rage try to attack Jim as soon as he notices him and only stop when he realizes he can't get past the wall? He should at least instantly storm the mansion he was trying to get into for days already. I don't think he didn't attack Jim to be grateful for releasing him.

Correction: There's no proof that the infected don't think. In every scene that they attack, it's a straight run from them to their victim, so they don't have to plan. Indeed, they must maintain some reasoning ability or they would just beat on a locked door and never leave until another victim appeared. Mailer is trying to figure out if he can get Jim.

Grumpy Scot

Corrected entry: Haven't the people in the film heard of mobile phones or television? The terrestrial TV stations may have broken down, but satellite stations from abroad would easily have been able to beam in messages at the start of the outbreak denying reports that the outbreak had spread to France and America. And given that Selena and Mark have been moving around central London, they would almost certainly have picked up such a message. Similarly, anyone making a radio broadcast about a possible cure (as the blockade soldiers do) would almost certainly have left a mobile phone number they could be contacted at. As there is enough electricity left over to power Christmas lights, lights in a supermarket, and the lights in a drinks dispenser, there would be enough electricity both to run a TV and to charge a mobile phone.

Correction: Firstly, power was not available everywhere - we even see Frank was using a battery to power the Christmas lights and I think the DVD commentary admits the lighting in the supermarket was a 'cheat'. Secondly, remember that the Major wanted his men to think that the infection had spread and that the world was ending. I doubt he would let any of them have access to a mobile phone.

Corrected entry: When Jim, Hannah and Frank leave the flat they decide to go to a Supermarket, but during wars or naturals disasters the supermarkets are the first to be looted by panicked citizens. This particular supermarket is not only unlocked but untouched as well and in very good condition.

Correction: True, but this was no normal natural disaster. supermarkets are looted because there is lax enforcement to keep them protected. in this particular situation, the rationale for staying out of the streets is the threat of the infected. Looting the supermarket, or indeed, going outdoors, was a potential life threatening situation. By the time the threat had cleared up enough that it was safe to venture outside, there may not have been enough people in the area to completely loot the supermarket. As far as we know, several groups could have hit the supermarket and taken as much as Frank, Jim, etc, and there would still be plenty inside.

Corrected entry: On top of the tower block, several of the plastic containers are washing baskets with holes in the sides. If it did rain, they wouldn't hold any water anyway. It was a waste of time collecting them and carrying them to the top. Water's important, but in the middle of central London there'd be literally millions of more suitable containers. (00:40:40)


Correction: But Frank and Hannah would be afraid to leave the safety of the barricaded tower block - all those containers came from the other apartments, and I guess they decided that even the little pool that would collect at the bottom of the baskets with holes would be better than nothing.

Tobin OReilly

Corrected entry: When Frank brings in the tray of drinks, there are only 3 glasses on it but when he puts it down there are 4. (00:36:20)


Correction: The fourth glass was behind the bottle of liquor, as seen in the next cut.

Corrected entry: At the beginning of the movie, when Jim is first rescued by Selena and the other guy, a big deal is made about not getting infected blood in his mouth. However, near the end of the movie when Jim rescues Selena in the military compound, his entire face is covered with the blood of the people he had just fought - both infected and not. After a moment of hesitation to decide whether to kill him, Selena kisses his bloody face.

Correction: Jim only kills soldiers before kissing Selena. He never kills any of the infected so he wouldn't have any infected blood on him.

Corrected entry: The group of four get almost entirely through the tunnel before getting a flat. As they change the tire they see and hear dozens of infected running their way from the direction they just came from. Where were all these infected, standing around in broad daylight? The group would have almost certainly passed and noticed a gathering of infected that large in the daylight. (00:45:50)

Correction: The infected were presumably hiding among the wreckage they drove over.

So these infected, driven to attack the uninfected, were just hanging out in a tunnel?

Corrected entry: Why are all the fruits and vegetables at the supermarket still fresh? you would assume that after 28 days there they'd start to look a little on the rotten side.

Isabel C DeLucia

Correction: A lot of them are going rotten, they show several rotten fruits and vegetables and only some green apples are still good. Frank says "ah, irradiated" just before he picks up a tray of apples.

Grumpy Scot

Corrected entry: When the group of 4 drive into the tunnel on their way to meet the soldiers, they discover it's somewhat clogged with abandoned and wrecked cars. Why is the tunnel the only place where cars were apparently deserted in mass hysteria? The city streets and highways are all empty. (00:41:00)

Correction: They said something about the infected attacking in daylight and that's a dark area - they could've had a mass slaughter in there.

Corrected entry: In the scene where Jim and the others stop at a supermarket there is a gross error. The sets feature no electricity, in the city and country, other than generator or battery power. At the supermarket outside of London, whereas the music may be at the market or on the soundtrack, the fluorescent lighting is a rather obvious blunder. (00:48:25)

Correction: Not necessarily. A power plant could run by itself for a week or two unattended (particularly if it is hydroelectric). Many grocery stores have a backup generator as well, which could kick in when the power fails (and be on a timer so it only runs at certain hours, prolonging duration). It is possible (though only just) that the power would still be on there.

Grumpy Scot

Corrected entry: At the beginning of the film, the lead actor walks across Westminster Bridge after leaving the deserted hospital. Despite the fact that the whole of London has been evacuated, there is a camera shot from behind the actor showing him walking across Westminster bridge, and slightly out of focus to the north east, you can see traffic going up and down Victoria embankment.

Correction: I can't see anything on the region 1 DVD. You only see the embankment in brief pan.


Corrected entry: When the group is about to drive through the tunnel, Frank has to ram some cars out of the way. Later, when they stop to set up camp, you see the front of the car with no damage at all.

Correction: He doesn't ram anything, he drives up and over the pile of debris.


Corrected entry: At the start of the movie, Jim walks through an empty London. We see Big Ben behind Jim, and Jim's shadow is behind him. The next shot shows Jim has no shadow, and is in complete shade. (00:09:11)

Correction: The sun is always shining. In the closeups you can see Jim's shadow and in the wide shots the Houses of Parliament are always bright in the morning sun.


Corrected entry: At the start of the movie, Jim walks through a deserted London. We see Big Ben from one angle showing about 7:45, then in the next shot it's about 7:40.

Correction: There's only one shot where the face of the clock is visible, and then it reads 12 minutes past 8.


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)

Correction: On the commentary track, the director says that the soundtrack contains voices for all the infected - it is indecipherable most of the time but it helps give the impression of rage. The boy's lines happened to be clearer than most.


Corrected entry: Why did none of the survivors have guns excepting the military? I know that Britain is probably less gun happy than the states, but surely someone would have thought to raid a police station for handguns, at least, and a shotgun would've worked quite well.

Correction: I'm certain people would've tried that. 28 days is a long time for those who were successful at looting a gun shop or police station to a) die or b) run out of ammo. Plus the UK is REALLY gun-unhappy, and you'd need to look hard to find any, even around police stations.

Corrected entry: At the start of the film as Jim walks around why is there a solitary bus lying on its side in the middle of the road? Why are there no corpses lying around? Why is it that the (virtually) only abandoned car in Central London is parked in the middle of a road junction and left both locked and alarmed?

Correction: As seen later in the film, the infected drag their victims away. If there is broken glass, then they could have easily pulled someone out,

Corrected entry: All survivors know how infectious the "rage" is yet no one wears safety glasses, face shield, rubber gloves or any other type of protection. The father did have riot gear but for some unknown reason it was quickly discarded. One guy at the beginning had a gas mask but was killed early. Besides being poorly armed they were also poorly armored.

Correction: The survivors don't seem to be aware just how infectious Rage is. In the scene when Jim is attacked by an infected neighbour at his parents' house, Selina asks him if any of the infected blood got into his mouth. However, Frank became infected by a drop of blood from an apparently long dead person dripping into his eye. It seems that no-one realises just how infectious Rage is, hence the apparent lack of protection.

Corrected entry: When Jim is walking around at the beginning of the film, he walks into a church and the priest starts coming at him; he appears to be choking. If Jim isn't aware of the virus yet, and the priest looked like he was in some kind of pain, why would Jim punch him out? Wouldn't he try to help him?

Correction: He's just walked from a completely abandoned city into a church piled high with bodies to find a red-eyed priest swinging his fists and roaring at him. He was freaked out.

Corrected entry: Why do the infected travel in groups? Wouldn't they attack anyone they see if they had pure rage? Not just the healthy people.

Kelsey H.

Correction: They don't travel in groups. They are all attracted to the same stimuli, much like sharks to blood. Simply because they all end up pursuing the same target at the same time does not suggest they are constantly roving in packs. They could easily be wandering around and run towards something making a noise, and would simply end up with a group of infected doing the same.

So what is the stimulus intended to be? Noise? Bleeding? Sweating?

Corrected entry: When the lead character and Selena meet the father and daughter, the father explains to them that they have not had water for some time. They use a bucket for a toilet. The lead has to shave without water. Yet in the very next scene, we see fish swimming in very clear, clean water in an aquarium. With the only available water that comes down in the form of rainfall, and a drought of at least ten days, it seems curious that the fish were given priority over personal grooming.

Correction: You may not have noticed that the water level in the fish tank is very low - the fish are all scuttling around at the bottom. Frank probably took most of the water for himself and Hannah but didn't have the heart to kill the fish (in keeping with his character).

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?

Correction: At that point, their main concern was to get out of the city. At the picnic site, it was a lot safer to rest.

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

Correction: Farrell said it was his OPINION that the virus had never left Britain - and the other soldiers held him in very low regard, so they wouldn't care what he thought. Anyway, the piles of bodies were more likely to be those of infected that had tried to enter the mansion.

Corrected entry: When the main characters first got to the area they heard broadcast, there were citizen's cars parked in front with luggage, just like theirs, When they got to the house, there weren't other people. Didn't they think that was a bit fishy?

fan before the site

Correction: They did, Selena says right off that something isn't right and they should get out of there, but before they can the soldiers arrive. They are basically forced to go to the army base.


Corrected entry: Why doesn't it ever occur to the characters to grab a boat on the Thames and sail away from Britain?


Correction: They didn't know how far infection had spread, so it would be pointless to sail to another country anyway. For all they know, infection could have spread across the seas - even though we later find out that that was a lie.

Corrected entry: The movie implies that infected people will eventually starve to death. Wouldn't they die of dehydration first? They should've all been dead when Jim woke from his coma.

fan before the site

Correction: The very first infected people probably were dead when Jim woke from his coma, but they kept infecting more people who would then live until they starved, infecting more people along the way. By the end of the movie there was no one left to infect.

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?

Correction: It is also suggested that they believe society as they know it is dead, and that they are possibly the only people left. That is enough to drive people to desperate measures, even after only a month.

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

Correction: The virus in fact did NOT reach Paris and New York. The head soldier was lying in order to gain control of those people. Another soldier explains to Jim later on that there was no way the virus could have travelled off the island.

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.

Correction: The disease has an incubation period of just a few seconds. So it is not possible to get infected, get in the car and get on the motorway. You couldn't get infected while on the motorway, and you couldn't walk onto the motorway either.


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.

Correction: The next scene takes place 28 days later, plenty of time to fix the vehicle or acquire one very similar to it.


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?

Correction: Not everyone that was infected got infected on the first day, those that are dying at the end of the film could have been infected recently. And those that were infected 56 days ago were probably long dead.


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?

Correction: There is a safe path through the minefield. It is seen when the group first arrive - it is marked by white tape on the ground.


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.

Correction: There WERE other survivors, not to mention infected people, around.
