Corrected entry: When the boy, Jared, is shot in the head at point-blank range from a shuttered window, slow-advance reveals: The rifle muzzle moves near Jared's head for several frames; then a digitally-inserted muzzle flash appears behind Jared's head for one frame; followed by one completely blank white frame; followed by one frame of digitally-inserted gun smoke behind Jared's head. Jared's head does not move or react in any way to the gunshot, and his head is completely intact throughout this lightning-fast bit of digital editing. Of course, by the time we see the gun smoke, the bullet should have already passed completely through the boy's head, and we would certainly see his physical reaction and the mortal injury. The two frames containing the muzzle flash and the gun smoke appear to be identical still frames of Jared's profile, retouched in a simple photo-editor, and completely lacking any gore.Charles Austin Miller
Corrected entry: Near the end of the film, the group arrives at the home of Mrs. Jones, a rather eccentric hermit. They are carrying no luggage, supplies, or anything that I can see. Mrs. Jones' wardrobe appears to be out of another era (indeed, the film goes to extremes to discuss how isolated from the world she is) and she is not the same size as any of the three characters who arrive at her home. The next morning, however, all three have different, modern-day clothing.
Corrected entry: Throughout the entire movie, whenever Elliot's mood ring is visible, regardless of the level of stress he's under, his ring is always navy blue, which denotes calm and happiness.
Corrected entry: At the end of the movie when the "specialist" is giving his account on to what happened, they are on TV - but his hand comes through the TV when he is gesturing.
Corrected entry: Mrs. Jones dies from the toxin even though she has stayed apart from the three people who are staying at her home and is some distance from them when she begins to show symptoms. The other three find themselves separated, two in the spring house, the other in the house. Although none is in anything like a sealed environment when Mrs. Jones dies - indeed, she smashes in several windows, which would have exposed Mark Wahlberg - none of the others is affected. Wahlberg observed the toxin affecting Mrs. Jones firsthand, and the speaking tube connecting the house with the spring house would have carried the toxin just as well as it did his voice.
Corrected entry: When the train stops and they are in some diner, the woman is showing video on her iPod. In the first scene she wears a red shirt, but after watching video on iPod, she is wearing a blue shirt.
