Resident Evil: Apocalypse

Continuity mistake: In the scene where the Nemesis kills the 13 S.T.A.R.S members, after it blows up the sniper on the roof an additional S.T.A.R.S member can be seen outside the building on the right who wasn't there earlier. He then disappears shortly afterwards.

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.


Revealing mistake: At the beginning, when one of the black trucks has an accident, whatever is making the dramatic sparks is still running when that part of bodywork is off the ground.


Revealing mistake: When Alice fixes her broken finger, you can see that the finger (and the entire hand) is made of rubber. This is even more obvious on the Blu-ray.

Factual error: When any character's automatic pistol runs out of bullets, the slide doesn't lock open. All the weapons shown are of a type which should.

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: At the end of the film when Alice gets her memory back, she grabs a pen and points it very close to a man's eye, then the camera changes shot still looking at Alice and the man but the pen is much further away from the eye than before.

Continuity mistake: When the girl is being chased by the zombies (just before we meet Carlos) the keypad for the door is right next to it. When she tries to enter the code, it is suddenly next to the small grey box.


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: Nemesis has an ammunition counter for his Vulcan cannon. When Nemesis is shooting at Peyton on the bridge, his counter stops at 3997 rounds. Almost immediately he begins shooting at Jill, but now the counter reads 3688.


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.

Revealing mistake: In the early aerial shots of Raccoon City, look to the left of the screen and you can see the CN Tower, a very recognizable landmark that is definitely in Toronto, not Raccoon City. This is due to the fact that film was shot in Canada.


Visible crew/equipment: When the SUV is struck by the large truck and is pushed along while upside down, a camera mount can be spotted (helps if you use slow motion) and also, a tow truck can be seen actually pulling the SUV along the street.


Continuity mistake: A zombie hits its head on a tombstone, which falls over. In the next shot, it's upright again.


Deliberate mistake: When Alice first fights the Nemesis, she attempts to jump over a fence and make an escape. When she lands on the police car, Nemesis fires his RPG at her. If you look closely, the rocket passes magically right through a chain link fence without touching it at all.


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.


Factual error: The sniper on the roof who is casually picking off zombies hand loads his rifle after every shot. The rifle he is using is the AWP Magnum which has a spring loaded 10 round clip and a breach that cannot be hand-fed ammunition.


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: Near the end, at the chopper crash site, the Umbrella man lifts the corner of the sheet covering Alice's body. From the high zoomed out shot, the guard is facing the waterfall, while the next shot he is facing the body.


Continuity mistake: When Alice slides on the floor, she shoots up a hole in the wall and goes down it, dislocating a finger on her left hand in the process. In the next shot she straightens it out, and the finger is on her right hand.

Add time

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.

Add time

Continuity mistake: Just before Nemesis starts shooting at Alice after shooting at Valentine, the counter on his gun shows 0000 rounds left.



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.


Resident Evil: Apocalypse mistake picture

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.


Continuity mistake: At the surplus store as a hand picks up a weapon, it is clear that the person is wearing jeans. The next shot is of a person wearing a lab coat and after that we see Alice getting dressed.


Resident Evil: Apocalypse mistake picture

Continuity mistake: Watch the scene where Alice almost pokes the scientist with the pen. In the close up shot of the guy's face, she almost poked him in his left eye. In the far shot, the pen is being pointed at his right eye.


Continuity mistake: When Nemesis blows up the STARS sniper on the roof of the theater, the size of his rocket launcher changes drastically.



Continuity mistake: When they're in the school and they split up, Terri walks into the classroom and the map at the front of the classroom has bloody hand prints on it. When Jill Valentine walks into the same room later, there are no hand prints on the map.

Continuity mistake: When Alice escapes from Nemesis falling into the garbage, she shows both hands with her fingers in good condition. Yet in the next shot, she has a very badly broken finger.

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.


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: When the scientists are standing at the entrance to the Hive, one of them opens a small transmitter, reflected in his mask, with its antenna pointing over 45 degrees. When it cuts, the antenna is pointing almost horizontally.

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.

Continuity mistake: When Alice is asleep and submerged in the water tank her body is in a fetal position. She wakes up and moves around. The water is then drained from the tank, but she's still in the exact same fetal position.


Visible crew/equipment: When Nemesis shoots the guy on the roof of the theater, you can see a machine that shoots out fire.

Add time

Continuity mistake: At the end, as the doctor walks away from Alice after questioning her, she changes from looking up at him to looking down between shots.



Continuity mistake: Watch the remains of the metal bar that sticks out of the building after Nemesis ripped it off to fight Alice. If you look at the point of the metal it is horizontal. When Nemesis is pushed onto it, it is vertical.


Continuity mistake: When LJ shows his custom guns to the STARS, he opens his coat and pulls the tail behind his back. In the wide shot, his arms are out to the sides.



Character mistake: Jill states that a 5 kiloton nuclear weapon will sanitise the city, however, such a yield is far too small to destroy the city.


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.

Visible crew/equipment: In the scene where Nikolai is bitten and the horde bears down on the police and S.T.A.R.S., you can see some crew members and a floodlight.


Deliberate mistake: When Jill and Angela are in the cafeteria, and the first dog comes running at Jill, if you look closely, you can see Jill bounces back with impact before the dog actually hits her.

Add time

Plot hole: In the school building, Nikolai is mauled by the police dogs that were affected by the T-virus. We see him lying dead on the ground several minutes after the attack and he still hasn't become a zombie. However, when someone dies they almost instantly come back.

Continuity mistake: When Alice has refused to finish Nemesis off, she stands alone. Mr. Bad Guy tells Nemesis to kill her, and two Umbrella men suddenly appear out of nowhere beside her.

Add time

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.

Add time

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.
