Corrected entry: During the evacuation scene when Robert's family is being scanned for virus by the soldiers, nobody cares about the dog. This was before the total extermination and they came to know that it's airborne just then. They didn't have any reason to believe that dogs would be immune to the virus. The dog must have been scanned/tested like anybody else. (Neville finds that dogs are immune to airborne infection only later).Earthling
Corrected entry: Will Smiths Character is immune to the virus. As are those who have been refugee in the camp at the end of the movie. Will Smiths character has used approx. three years trying to find a cure/vaccine. But all that the woman is taking from N.Y to the refugee camp is the vial of blood, which contains the same immune blood that everyone else who survived has. Since the grenade exploded in the basement, she couldn't collect any usable data to provide the refugees with. Now, we can only assume that the refugees also have done some research with their own blood, and that the provided blood from Will Smiths Character wouldn't contribute in any way to their research.

Corrected entry: Robert tells Anna that when the plague first began there were 6 billion people on earth. There were in fact an estimated 6.7 billion. While one could argue he was simply rounding down - this is unlikely because he has a very precise breakdown - 6 billion to start, 5.4 billion infected, 588 million killed, and 12 million healthy. Besides the missing 700 million people, how does he know that of the 12 million healthy the 3 of them are the only ones left alive? And how does he get these precise numbers?
Corrected entry: Robert Neville is standing atop an airplane hitting golf balls. Sam sees a deer in the streets below. Neville picks up his gun and looks through the scope. When he does this the flashlight is on the right side of the gun. Later in the scene Neville and Sam follow the deer into the dark old bank, Neville enters with his gun raised, but the flashlight is now on the left side of the gun.
Corrected entry: In the scene where Robert is looking for his dog when she runs off into the building, as he looks round the corner at the mirror, you can briefly see the camera light.
Corrected entry: During Robert's first flashback, while arguing with his wife in the car, he hits a sick person, who leaves a blood smear on the passenger side window. During the second flashback of the same scene, when his wife gets out of the car, there is no blood on the window.
Corrected entry: At the end he says that 1% of people are immune. That is 1% of 6 billion, and that is 60 million, not 12 million.
Corrected entry: There's just been a major zombie outbreak but humanity don't seem to have put up much of a fight as there's no sign of struggle anywhere (Smashed glass, abandoned barricades, spent bullets etc.).
Corrected entry: When Robert Neville is playing golf, the camera is rotating around and you see him hit the ball. As he says "yeah," you can see two balls in a line. The camera then goes back down so you can see the dog's face and Robert swinging. You cannot see the balls as they are hidden, but Robert then hits the ball towards the hole. However having seen the shot beforehand, there were only two balls to hit and he couldn't have hit either cleanly like that as they where in a line.
Corrected entry: When Dr. Neville is walking up to "Fred" the mannequin, its head moves from side to side between shots.
Corrected entry: All the 'spare' cars would be seized up and have other problems making them generally non-working from lack of use for 3 years.
Corrected entry: The Ford SUV was destroyed when Robert goes out and attacks the Dark Seekers; I think it was even flipped as well. So how can the same truck be driven, by the woman and the kid that rescued him, at the end of the film?
Corrected entry: If 12 million people survived, 6,488,000,000 would become "darkseekers" to be exact, or 5,988,000,000 to count from 6 billion - not 588,000,000 as Roberts suggests, unless the population prior to the outbreak dropped to 600,000,000. The numbers are out by an order of magnitude.
Corrected entry: When Dr. Neville and Sam are trapped in the building after chasing a deer, when they are running out of the building and Neville jumps out of the window, two dark seekers jump with him, but when they land there's only one.
Corrected entry: If pretty much everyone but Neville and a few colonies of survivors are dead, who is running the power plants so that he can have electricity in his house? And where does he get gas for his vehicles? Okay, he could siphon it out of other cars, but even that would start to run out after awhile. He does a lot of driving around.
Corrected entry: In the scene where Neville is hunting deer in his red Mustang, just after he slides to a stop, Neville looks out over the deer running away. Look to the very right in the dark shady building. You see what looks like a dog running away. I thought Sam was the only dog left?
Corrected entry: When Robert and Sam are eating and Sam is being picky about her food, there is a glass right next to Robert, each time he talks you can see a small reflection of the boom mike moving.
Corrected entry: How can Neville refuel his car, if gasoline and diesel lose their properties after a while? Gasoline loses its properties after 3 months of manufacture.
Corrected entry: The jet that Neville was golfing off of, the SR-71 Blackbird, was never an aircraft-carrier compatible aircraft. Furthermore, the SR-71 was retired in 1998, and of all remaining models, only two were kept by NASA, and the rest were not airworthy, and moved to museums. The SR-71 would certainly not have been physically able to be on an aircraft carrier.
Corrected entry: The way mutants are portrayed in this film is not consistent at all. They go from normal mindless killers to special forces super mutants. At the beginning, Will is able to outrun them, knock them out, kill them with a few rounds, capture them with a black bag, sedate, restrain and experiment on them without even breaking a sweat. Near the end, the mutants are nearly indestructible. They're able to jump 20 feet high in the air, they can destroy concrete walls and ceilings, they can easily blast through a solid steel security door. And the main mutant breaks an impact-resistant Plexiglas door by banging his head on it. If they had this kind of strength all along, Will would not have lasted five seconds.
Corrected entry: Robert walks into the living room where Ethan is watching Shrek. The scene on the TV shows Shrek and Donkey having a dispute about where the fence should be built, this part of the Shrek is after Princess Fiona is rescued. When the camera angle changes, Robert starts reciting in synchronisation with the film. However the part Robert recites is from the start of the movie before he is given the quest from Lord Farquaad to rescue Princess Fiona.
Corrected entry: When the woman and child drive up to the entrance of the community in Vermont which is inhabited by those not infected, the vehicle she is in is so shiny and clean it looks like it was driven directly off the showroom floor! Given she had been on a long drive, there should be road grime, dirt and bug splatter.
Corrected entry: We see the nightseekers easily scale the walls during the siege of of the building where Neville lives. The walls of the Colony, even though large and secured by retinal scans, would offer little protection from the nightseekers looking to climb in.
Corrected entry: Couldn't mutants not go outside because of any kind of light or direct light only? That leader mutant (and its dogs as well) stayed inside its dark shelter while Robert captured a female mutant. But later, in a different scene, dogs were waiting only for no direct sunlight before attacking but it was still daylight. Anyway, during the first scene there was no direct light too.
Corrected entry: In the initial hunting scene, when Neville and the dog are walking through some very tall grass, you can see that the dog is walking on a prepared path where the grass has been flatenned.
Corrected entry: When Will wakes up to see a woman cooking she as a dressing gown on and when the camera returns to her she is still cooking but now wearing a tee shirt.
Corrected entry: Neville makes a comment that the mutants have lost all human traits, but the ones who later attack him outside Grand Central Station have stolen and transported something Neville set up in another part of town, devised a snare trap and been able to "domesticate" mutant dogs for hunting purposes.
Corrected entry: In the first scene with the GT500 in the inside shot you could see the sticker (price) but in any other shot it's not there in the window.
Corrected entry: The grenade explosion and ensuing fire in the basement should suck out all oxygen in the basement - the girl and the little boy ought to have died by asphyxiation.
Corrected entry: In a scene in Robert Nevell's house he is washing his dog in the bath tub using running tap water. Where is this fresh water coming from over 3 years after the last water treatment facility was abandoned?
Corrected entry: At the beginning of the film in the newscast, sports news is flashing across at the bottom of the screen. One headline reads that the Giants lost for the 2nd time in the season to the Patriots. This is impossible as the teams are in separate conferences and could never play more than once per year.
Corrected entry: In a city where millions were trapped, infected and even consumed by zombies, there isn't so much as a pinky toe bone, shredded clothing or any other evidence of inhabitants. There should have been body remnants everywhere.
Corrected entry: To contain the virus in Manhattan they blow up the bridges (and I assume the tunnels too, otherwise that would be a ridiculous oversight and a plot hole in itself). How then did that woman drive from Maryland to Manhattan and then to Vermont? There should have been no roads in or out.
