Corrected entry: When the zombies storm the mall, everyone is able to use the elevator despite the power being out.
Corrected entry: Near the end of the film when they are running for the yacht, C.J. waits behind on the bus. The zombies are coming thick and fast at him in the bus and he is shooting at them, yet he then has time to reload his gun and then resume shooting.
Corrected entry: When the guys are being chased through the parking garage, they get behind a chain-link fence and shoot the zombies several times through it. However, even though the guys are only about six feet away from the fence, the fence remains undamaged. They were using blanks. It's highly unlikely that all shotgun rounds went through the open parts and none of them hit the metal.
Corrected entry: The first time the guys go down in the garage they are mobbed by loads of zombies, yet when they all revamp the buses to make their getaway vehicles, there are none. Were the zombies feeling charitable that day?
Corrected entry: What happened to the little girl at the beginning? The main woman locks her out of the bedroom when she attacks her husband. When she escapes, her husband comes back through the front door to chase her. He would've had to pass the girl to get back out and since they seem to hunt in packs you would've thought she'd be with him. Where did she go?
Corrected entry: The group goes down in the parking garage and they are eventually trapped within a cage with a gasoline pump. When Michael pours gasoline all over the zombies, and a lighter is thrown, the whole area would explode. Gasoline fumes have just as much potential to ignite as the liquid does. Therefore only the zombies lighting up could not happen.
Corrected entry: Near the beginning of the film, Sarah Polley's character is driving away from the suburbs to escape the carnage. As she's driving we see a van speed across the road and barge into an SUV also on the road before sliding into a gas station and causing a huge explosion. Look closely at the road the van comes off though... Right before the van comes out, the road is completely clear of any vehicles and the van magically appears just in time to swoop into the oncoming SUV.
Corrected entry: If the zombies could get to the first floor shouldn't there be a stairway, escalator, or some alternative means elsewhere in the mall to get to the second floor beyond the initial elevator? That mall was huge, there's no way one elevator could serve that whole mall.
Corrected entry: When the group of survivors first gets to the mall, Ving Rhames gets in a fight with a zombie and fall into the water fountain, giving Ving a nice sized gash in the process. But if a simple bite can turn one of the living into the living dead, wouldn't the blood from these creatures be able to turn a human as well? Sarah Polley washed her hands off in the fountain (supposing it was infected blood).
Corrected entry: In the garage scene, Bart is attacked by a legless zombie dangling from some pipes. Being legless, how would he have gotten up there in the first place? It's possible that perhaps when he was human, he got up there first, lost his legs afterward, and then changed into a zombie, but then why would he still be up there after so long? (You can tell he has been dead at least a few weeks by his stage of decomposition.)Sammi
