Resident Evil: Afterlife

Revealing mistake: When Wesker flips Claire and Chris during their fight, in the brief sequence from the side when she lands on her back, a TCR timecode is visible in the lower-left of the screen for a single frame before it cuts to the sequence with Alice cornered by dogs. TCR timecodes are meant to be removed when a film is finished.

THGhost

Continuity mistake: In the after titles sequence, when Jill is addressing the group in the plane, she is walking with her hands on her back. When she turns around, heading towards the tail, in the long shot her hands are on her hips.

Continuity mistake: When the elevator hits the water, it starts to tilt over to one side. This contradicts the shot which shows it falling, where it fits very snugly in its shaft.

Friso94

Other mistake: When we see a shot of the plane flying away from under the camera through the mountains, the 2:40 crop (letterbox) is drastically warped in the upper right half of the image.Spotted on the Australian Blu-Ray release. The DVD copy does not have this error. (00:19:20)

Continuity mistake: When Alice is shining her flashlight into the tunnel, note that the shower column is on the right side of the tunnel entrance. In the shots on the outside of the tunnel, that same column is on the left side of the entrance. (01:04:30)

Friso94

Continuity mistake: Alice stabs Wesker in the head with the handle of the scalpel tilting over to Wesker's left side. In every shot afterwards, it's facing to Wesker's right.

Friso94

Other mistake: During the fight with the Axeman, we get a few shots of him breaking the shower columns. In the overhead shot of Claire, the columns in front of her and way out of reach of the Axeman are already broken, before the flip.

Friso94

Continuity mistake: Alice ties Claire up to a double engined plane. In the satellite shot, it changes to a single engined plane.

Friso94

Continuity mistake: In the overhead shot with the falling glass, Alice's second shotgun is apparently lying under the table, because we can't see it. When Bennett attempts to pick it up, it has moved itself a good foot and a half away from the table. (01:24:00)

Friso94

Continuity mistake: In the front shot of Alice just when see jumps off of the roof, in the far right corner of the screen, one of the zombies trips and falls down. But in the wide-shot directly afterwards, that zombie is instantly gone.

Friso94

Revealing mistake: Just after the Tower Swing, Alice shoots with her Smith and Wesson at a load of zombies. But when she fires the last two shots (the ones in slow-motion) pay close attention to the gun in HER right hand. The chamber doesn't start to turn until after she has fired the shot, meaning that the hammer would strike a spent bullet.

Friso94

Continuity mistake: Right after Alice lands on top of the prison, she makes three skid-marks on the roof: one with each wheel. These are seen best in the shots which show the front of the plane. But in the overhead shots, the skid-marks are gone. This can be best seen in the shot where Luther grabs hold of the tail wing.

Friso94

Continuity mistake: When Alice kicks Bennett away, he lands one one of the dead bodies, sliding it back significantly. But in the shot where the dog is splitting its head, you can see the head of the body in the top right corner of the screen. And it definitely is the one Bennett landed, seeing how that was the one next to the shotguns. And in later shots, you can see that all of the bodies are in their original positions.

Factual error: Alice blows up the wires of the elevator to bring it down as quickly as possible. But all elevators have emergency brakes to prevent precisely that from happening. The chances of them being damaged by rust are also very slim: they are covered in grease.

Friso94

Visible crew/equipment: Immediately after the scene of The Executioner beginning his walk to the prison, there is an aerial shot moving toward the prison in which the camera plane's shadow can be seen on the right of the screen.

rswarrior

Factual error: The blood stream on Wesker's head is wrong. He is leaning over to his right, and the blood coming straight out of the wound is going slightly to the right, and then straight down, so far so good. But at the angle he is lying, the blood should have stopped at his eye, and even if it did jump over his eye socket, it should have been directly below or even more to the right of where the first stream ends.

Friso94

Revealing mistake: Just before the Axeman throws his axe at Claire and Alice, we get of shot of Claire turning around. But pay close attention to the wall behind her. You can already see the crack which is going to hold up his axe before he throws it. And it isn't an old crack, because when Alice is about to take a shower, all the walls are perfectly fine.

Friso94

Continuity mistake: Right after the Tower swing, Alice draws her shotguns, ready to shoot. In the close up shot of her, the shotgun in her right hand is pointing up. But in the far shot with the two zombies in front of her, it is pointing down instantly. (01:03:55)

Friso94

Continuity mistake: When Alice is shining her flashlight into the tunnel, in the far shot from the inside of the tunnel, she is leaning on a rock, on her elbows. But in the shot directly afterwards, she is still leaning on the same rock, only now on her hand.

Friso94

Continuity mistake: Before the opening fight scene, we can see the guards running towards the entrance past a row of Hummer H2's. But after Alice blows the second group away and takes out those cars, they all of a sudden change to H1's. Also it can't be one from the opposite end, because those have a pick-up truck rear end, and the one lying on its side has a slanted back end.

Henkie36

Alice: Hey, boys. Is that any way to treat a lady?
