Continuity mistake: During the quake, a mother is seen having a plate glass window fall on her face while her daughter screams. Before the mother turns around to show us the gore, look close and you can see a shard of glass already "placed" in her face before the fake glass falls her. Additionally, while not a "mistake", it's clearly a "stuntman" portraying the mother. The face and yelping give it away.

Question: What was the point of the crazy soldier who shoots the black thieves and later gets shot dead by George Kennedy? Why was he so nutty, and quite frankly what purpose did he even serve in the film?

Gavin Jackson

Chosen answer: Before he put the uniform on, he was a complete nobody, having the respect of no-one. Now that he's in uniform, he demands that people should respect him, and coupled with the powers of Martial Law (where looters can be shot on sight), takes the lack of respect too far and shoots them.
