Revealing mistake: Nearly at the end, the scientists find Alice's body at the waterfall, one of the men lifts up the cloth to take a look at her face. Her face is badly burned on one side and she is pronounced dead. However, take a look at the left side of her neck, you can see her either gulp or take in a quick breath of air.
Continuity mistake: After the gas explosion in the school, Angela reveals that Alice is infected. The woman cop asks "When were you gonna tell us that?" and the next shot shows Alice with burns/blood on her upper left arm. In the next shot as Alice goes to sit down, the severity and position of the burns/blood changes.
Continuity mistake: Watch the left side of the mouth piece in Alice's mouth when she is in the tank at the end. In the shot up close to her left there is a plastic support going up, in the next shot of her right the support is pointing down, and after the scientist says "can you hear me?" and the shot is close to her, the support isn't even there.
Continuity mistake: Toward the end, Major Cain storms aboard the helicopter, shouting "Why haven't we taken off, yet?" The shot switches to LJ (Mike Epps)in one of the pilot's seats. As he says, "Because I normally drive Cadillacs" he punches out at Cain with his left hand. In the reaction shot, however, as Cain flies backward, the punching hand is LJ's right hand.
Continuity mistake: When Alice and the group are going to raid the Umbrella guards and steal the helicopter, one of the men looks through binoculars with night vision. He looks at the helicopter, then looks to the right of the helicopter, yet in the next scene a second later, his head is in the same position as it was when he looked at the helicopter, before he looked to the right.
Revealing mistake: Near the end of the film when the zombies are shuffling up what looks like a parking ramp towards the escape helicopter, in several shots it's painfully obvious that some zombies don't have any makeup at all and a good portion are walking normally, unlike their shuffling comrades. One with blonde hair is even using a handrail.
Continuity mistake: When Jill Valentine and Angie are running from the dogs after turning on the gas, Jill kicks the left side of the double doors open. However, when she turns around to see if the match ignited the gas, she has the right door open. When Jill Valentine realizes Alice light a cigarette she starts running, again out of the right side of the door. (Looking at the doors from the kitchen to the cafeteria).
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.
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.
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.
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.
Revealing mistake: When Yuri gets bitten while the SWAT team, along with the local PD, fight the zombies on the streets, Carlos and Yuri almost get bitten by a zombie, but they are saved by their 3rd member. Right after that we see a sign reading "Pizza Pizza" which is the largest pizza company in Ontario, Canada. There are no locations in the US.
Deliberate mistake: In the scene where they're on the airplane, and the bomb has just been landed, there's a sharp instrument that's loose and starts going towards Angela, and Alice takes the fall. If you watch closely, the sharp instrument is aiming towards Alice's right shoulder, but ends up meeting her stomach.
Factual error: In the cemetery scene about 1/4 through the movie, you see a corpse with meal worms eating its head. It's a cemetery, not a bait shop. What, is the corpse a fisherman? I am pretty sure you would never see this in real life. Meal worms eat mostly bran, fruit and vegetables and fish eat them. Worms and maggots yeah, but not mealies.
