Continuity mistake: Right after Bennett takes off in the plane, Claire throws a gun to Alice. Between the slow-motion shots, the gun switches position in mid-air before Alice catches it. In the shot of Claire throwing it, the barrel is facing to the right, meaning that it should be facing to the left in the shot of Alice catching it. But it still faces the right when she does.
Continuity mistake: When Alice makes the first approach to land on the roof of the prison, Luther shouts "Down!", and they all duck. In the close up shot of the group, you can see that Angel and Bennett are facing the same way as Luther and Kim. But in the wide shot, they are facing in the opposite direction.
Continuity mistake: When K-Mart throws Alice's shotgun to her right before she shoots Wesker in the mouth, between the slow-motion shots, the gun switches position in mid-air before Alice catches it. K-Mart throws it with the barrel facing towards Alice but when she catches it its barrel is facing away from her.
Continuity mistake: During the scene where Bennett takes off in the plane, the concrete edge suddenly disappears. He hadn't already taken off, because he makes a huge dive directly after leaving the roof, and even if he did use it as a ramp, then it makes no sense why Alice did smash through the edge.
Audio problem: Near the beginning of the film when Alice and her clones break into the Umbrella building, she comes down in an elevator. The numbers above the elevator showing what floor she is on beep every time they change, but some of the beeps are out of sync. A beep is heard for floor 6 before the number 7 has even changed and a beep is also heard a fraction of a second before the number 3 fully appears.
Continuity mistake: During the scene on the rooftop, after shooting some approaching zombies, the group run into the lift while shooting a bunch more zombies. The bomb then explodes, sending the lift down. The scene goes back to Alice fastening herself on a sling. When the camera moves to show the zombies, all of the zombies have moved back some 25 feet away and all of them are standing still, waiting patiently for Alice to make the next move. Alice turns around to run to the edge of the building, and we can see that the zombies who had been shot earlier and should still be lying around have magically disappeared.
Factual error: Alice isn't superhuman in the scene of the Tower Swing. But at the rate she is falling, she would both hit the ground before the cable would be under tension, and even if the prison was high enough, it would probably shatter every bone in her shoulder when it does become tensioned.
Continuity mistake: During the initial fight scene, the clone who survives the Needle Dive is later on shot by Wesker, upon which she drops two grenades. Where did she pull those grenades from? Right before she jumps out of the window, you can see that there are no grenades dangling from a belt, and there isn't much room to hide something like that in a skintight catsuit.
Factual error: In the scene where Alice lands the plane on the roof of the prison the length of the roof is far too short to have landed in that distance at the speed they were traveling. The wings also impact several solid objects during the landing which would have damaged them, if not severed them completely. At the end of the landing the nose smashes through a solid concrete ledge at the end of the run. The propeller is too fragile and should have shattered in an impact that forceful but instead remains completely unscratched.
Other mistake: At the end of the fight with the Axeman, Alice points a shotgun towards him, while both she and Claire are sitting on their knees (as is seen in the overhead shot with the axe in the wall). But the shotgun is clearly pointed downwards. Alice is 5'9'', while the Axeman is at least 9 ft. tall. If she wants to blow his head off, she should have been pointing it more up.
Continuity mistake: Alice drops her shotguns after she is knocked out by the Axeman, and a close up of the shotgun shows that it lands near one of the shower columns. And when Claire spots the shotgun, it is still lying in the spot where Alice dropped it. But in the wide shot just before Claire starts her slide, the one with both Claire and the Axeman, there aren't any more of the shower columns between them, and Claire only picks up the shotgun after the wide shot.
Continuity mistake: In the flashback when Claire remembers what really happened on the beach where they landed the chopper, the Umbrella guard slams the spider-shaped device on her chest. In the next two shots, the device is gone, but when Alice finds her 18 months later, it's back on.
Revealing mistake: Just before the group enters the elevator which Alice blows up, they are all shooting at the horde of zombies. But pay close attention to Alice's MP5K. There are no empty shells flying away from it, which means the gun ran out of blanks and the flares were edited in later on. Also, we can see the empty cases flying away from Luthers gun, who is even further away from the camera.
Continuity mistake: Just when Alice jumps off the roof, pay close attention to the zombie directly to her right. You can see how he slows down and stops on the ledge. But in the shot directly afterwards, all of the zombies are jumping after Alice, and none are stopping where the roof ends.
Continuity mistake: In the scene after Alice bungee's off the roof, as she runs through the crowd of zombies towards Luthor, she fires the shotgun loaded with quarters once. As she gets closer he jumps to pull the door down and as all the zombies hit the door, you can see that it's solid, no holes. But when the shot changes to the inside view, the door now has quite a few holes in it. Not only were they not there before, but the door was open, so the quarters wouldn't have hit it anyway.
01:03:50 - 01:04:20
Continuity mistake: During the fight scene with the Axeman, Claire slides between his legs while gunning him down with Alice's shotgun. But watch his axe. In the far shot he is holding it up, like he is ready to strike, but in the shot where he is falling, the axe is leaning on the ground all of a sudden.
Continuity mistake: After the Tower Swing, Alice lands where she started out: in front of the garage with the UPV. Note the sign with the gun on it. But the door right next to it is closed. Behind that door is the UPV. Since everybody was in somewhat of a rush, it doesn't make sense that anyone should have closed it.
Revealing mistake: When the Umbrella guards are lining up in front of the elevator, we get a few close-up shot of the level counter. During those close-ups, you can see the ribbed rear wall of the elevator when the dial is still only at level 3. Compare the wall to when the doors open, it is exactly the same. This means that the elevator isn't moving at all, and that it is just the dial.
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.
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.
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.
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: 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.
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.
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.
