Continuity mistake: In the DVD, at the climax, just prior to when Alice is forced to fight Nemesis, she has a conversation with Thomas Kretschmann (the dude with the leather coat). During the conversation, one shot shows Alice with blood trickling down her neck and some bruises on her face after she previously had no injuries. Moments later, her face is back to normal. Later, during the fight with Nemesis, you see that that is where she sustains her injuries.
Continuity mistake: As Alice is attacking the guards around the helicopter with the batons, she switches from holding them low to holding them high between shots right after she knocks down the last guard. There isn't enough time or any reason for her to do so in the second offscreen as the others arrive. (01:04:15)Phoenix
Revealing mistake: Resident Evil Apocalypse was shot in Toronto and the filmmakers wanted to use the city surrounding the CN tower to be Raccoon City. They edited out the CN tower, however they missed a brief glimpse at it. It's shown really quickly in between when Angie's vehicle crashes and when it stops. (00:05:25)
Visible crew/equipment: A boom mic operator wearing a white shirt is seen reflected in the door that the female scientist opens, when the Umbrella personnel pick her up, as part of their extraction procedure. He is visible as the door is opening and very faintly when it is closed. (00:04:00)
Plot hole: After Dr. Ashford was shot, he stayed down the whole time that Alice fought with Nemesis, they fought with Umbrella, and after they took off. How is that possible? According to all the other times they've been shot, and with the t-virus in their bloodstream, they reanimate almost ten minutes later -- not when the director wants.
Factual error: When the nemesis creature fires a rocket-propelled grenade down the laundry chute/garbage chute at Alice, she protects herself from the blast by a plastic cart. When Alice tips the cart it warps and bends, and even more obviously when Alice leans on the side. There is no way this would have worked, the plastic cart would have been destroyed along with her.
Continuity mistake: In the church, Peyton asks Terri about her video camera. She has it raised to shoulder height. Cut to her face and the camera's gone. The next shot is through the camera and shows the same view of Peyton we could see before over her shoulder, so she didn't move it. (00:20:45)Phoenix
Continuity mistake: In the church scene, Alice blows up her motorcycle with two shots of her Colt .45's. During the shot of her back, she already starts with holstering her guns, her arms are already halfway there when the shot cuts. Then, there is a quick shot of the explosion, and in the next shot her arms are straight again, in the position where they were when she took a shot at her bike. There is no reason or time enough to do that.Friso94
Visible crew/equipment: When Nemesis shoots the guy on the roof of the theater, you can see a machine that shoots out fire.
