Continuity mistake: When they crash their truck Steve jumps out of it. The truck is quite dusty and Steve's hand slides on the side of the truck leaving a mark in the dust. Later when Kenneth jumps out of the truck you can see the side has been wiped clean, removing not only Steve's mark, but a whole area of dust. (01:33:50 - 01:34:20)Mortug
Plot hole: When Ana is driving away from her home, she stops on the road and a guy opens her door, scaring her into turning her car toward the curb, plowing through a guardrail. She couldn't have picked up a lot of speed, and those guardrails are supposed to always be reinforced on highways/interstates. At that angle she would have had to knock out at least 4 reinforcing beams (they use 'I' beams to reinforce them, and are intended to stop vehicles from passing through them, or slow them down immensely).
Continuity mistake: After Andy shoots the zombie that looks like Jay Leno, there are shots of the characters looking through binoculars. Tucker's and Steve's binoculars still have the lens caps on. (00:58:05)
Revealing mistake: When they use a gas cylinder and shoot it with a shotgun to wipe out a load of zombies, the resulting explosion as seen from above the trucks is way too big to have come from that small cylinder.
Continuity mistake: When the group goes to rescue Nicole from Andy's shop it it is evening, when they return and must evacuate the mall it's night, but soon as they clear the horde in the parking lot it becomes early morning.
Continuity mistake: About 3/4 of the way through, CJ is on the roof of the gun shop and blows up a tank of propane to clear the zombies so everyone can escape. The truck that was blocking the door was their only way in and out of the shop. On their way into the gun shop you see two zombies follow them through the truck to the shop's entrance, but when he blasts the propane, somehow I guess they get cooked. My nitpick is that when CJ goes the same path as the others, there is a dead zombie blocking his exit through the truck's door. If the others already went out that same door they would have had to move that burned zombie to get through the truck.quay
