Question: Rumour has it, that one of the mannequin moves its eyes, now I have noticed that Frank moves in 'the trap on Robert Neville' scene, but I was specifically told that one of the eyes move. Now I have a few questions for this: firstly, is this the truth, or false? Secondly, if this is true, which mannequin moves its eyes? Lastly, is this a figure of Robert Neville's mental breakdown?
Question: I might have missed it, but in the scene where Neville is watching his wife and daughter evacuate New York, what exactly caused the other helicopter to spin out of control and crash into Neville's family's helicopter? Was it the fighters bombing the bridge, or the people hanging onto the out-of-control helicopter?
Question: **END OF MOVIE SPOILER WARNING**At the end of the film, Will Smith dramatically sacrifices himself with a grenade, just after telling Anna and Ethan to hide until dawn. However, they are currently below ground in his basement, meaning no natural light. Wouldn't this mean that any Zombies surviving the grenade would still be able to attack Ethan & Anna?
Question: Dogs are immune to the disease being airborne, how did they ever get infected then? Did the infected humans bite the dogs? Seems an odd thing to do as that would likely mean the lions and deer would also be infected. 2. Why did the head mutant allow Will Smith to live (alternate ending)? Once he's got his mate back why didn't he just kill them? Was it a sign of mutual respect? Why don't they show that compassion when they first appeared? Smith takes the head mutant's mate, so in return the head mutant kills his dog and best friend, trashes his lab and destroys his research and stops any progress of a cure that Smith had made. Why not go the extra mile and just kill him, as they basically made humans extinct by doing that? The Darkseekers are smart as we know (setting traps and so on) so why not kill them now, as the next night the Darkseekers are going to search for him again and he doesn't have that big defence anymore. Seems rather pointless to let him live another day.Swan90EFC
Question: When Sam is turning into an infected, and Neville is holding on to her, she is trying to kill Neville and the shot goes to a close-up of him, and after the close-up he lets go of Sam and she just rolls away motionless. What I don't know is, did Neville break her neck or did he suffocate her or did the medicine he gave her kill her?
Question: Before Neville is caught in the Darkseekers' trap, you see the "Fred" mannequin from Neville's viewpoint when he's still driving the car. Is it just my imagination, or is "Fred" actually moving like/being played by a human actor? Wouldn't be a mistake as we're seeing through Neville's eyes (and his inevitable mental breakdown), but this is bugging me all the same.
Question: When Will Smith enters the abandoned apartment looking for survivors, etc., he opens a cupboard to find some Spam. When he opens the cupboard, there is a magazine cover saying "Dogs can come out at dusk". I have two questions. One, why can the dogs come out at dusk and the infected humans can't? And two, when the encounter with Fred occurs, and the dogs are waiting for the strip of light to fade so they can kill Robert, is that the reason why the infected human hiding in the shadows could not come out? Because they cannot come out at dusk?
Question: How is it that the disease could infect dogs too, and turn them into the same thing as infected humans? At the beginning of the movie, it is stated that the virus that killed everyone arose from a specially bioengineered treatment for cancer, which mutated into the deadly virus. But dogs can't get a lot of the diseases that infect humans. Did the disease really mutate far enough so that it affected dogs that way too, or did people want their pets cured of cancer, or what? Even if the disease was able to infect the dogs, it seems strange that it would affect them the same way as it does humans.
Question: During the scene when his family is leaving, why does Robert Neville insist on staying on the island? Wouldn't he have knowledge of a better site or safer lab area since he is of military background? Even when the girl asks him to come to the colony, he insists that ground zero is his site. Is he just staying there because he's familiar with his own lab? Couldn't he have brought equipment with him to the colony?
Question: The trap in which Robert Neville got caught could not have possibly be set by some over aggressive mutants. Installing such a trap would have required not only human abilities (which Robert Neville said they completely lack) but also a lot of patience, advanced planning and the use of tools. The level of aggressiveness shown by the mutants excludes any possibility that they could be patient enough to set such a trap. For me there was no doubt in my mind that the trap was either set by: 1. Robert Neville himself, and then he forgot due to a deteriorating mental state 2. Another survivor from New York who wanted to catch animals or mutants for whatever reason. How likely does it sound that the trap was set by another survivor?Cristian Enache
