Corrected entry: When Gerry checks out the rear cabin in the Belarus plane, he opens the curtain to see everyone screaming as the virus rages through the cabin. It's a curtain, not a soundproofed steel door - 1) there's no way that the front cabin passengers would not hear the screams just yards behind them, and 2) it's not reasonable to believe nobody would have run down the aisle and into the front cabin as they tried to escape.

Corrected entry: When Gerry flies into Israel he nor the co-pilot mention the giant wall they have just flown over to get into Jerusalem, and Gerry acts surprised when told about it.
Corrected entry: As Gerry and Segen are climbing on board the airliner to escape Jerusalem, one of the pilots takes their weapons, like Segen's machete and Gerry's assault rifle. Once they climb up the later, the pilot throws the rifle out of the jet through the hole they came in through. The sound effect is wrong here. It is a ladder hole leading out of the plane to the concrete runway below that is a drop of several feet. Yet as he chucks it down the hole, it makes a sound the instant it is out of sight, as if the ground is right there, and it makes the sound of the gun hitting a regular floor. (01:03:05)
Corrected entry: When Gerry's car gets hit by the ambulance at the beginning, the airbags don't go off initially, only going off when he gets hit by the second car. Airbags are instantly deployed at impact.
Corrected entry: Cardiff is a city and not a small Welsh village as shown in the film.
Corrected entry: After the cop breaks off the side view mirror of the family car and they take off to follow the trash truck, it is back on.
Corrected entry: The hunt for a cure begins with Brad Pitt and his team flying off a very small aircraft carrier in a large C-130 Transport. This is completely impossible. This type of aircraft has never been nor can it be launched from any aircraft carrier. The small aircraft carrier in the movie is only suitable for helicopters and Harrier jump jets.
Corrected entry: A major plot point of the movie is that the zombies are attracted to any sound. Yet despite all the noise from military helicopters patrolling Jerusalem and commercial jetliners landing at the airport, it's only the sound of singing that triggers the zombie attack on the city.
Corrected entry: After the phone rings, one of the W.H.O. Scientists gives Gerry the code to get into Vault 139. As Gerry sets down his crowbar against the wall to key in the code, you can see the supposedly air tight seal around the door of the vault holding the deadly pathogens, is not actually sealed. There is a very visible gap, showing it's a set. (01:38:10)
Corrected entry: The area outside the Jerusalem safe zone is swarming with zombies, but the military helicopters don't decide to carpet-bomb and strafe the crowd with machine guns until AFTER the infected have scaled the wall. What in hell were they waiting for?
Corrected entry: When Terry and Gerry enter the Argus control room, there is a shot of a sailor communicating with stranded personnel. This sailor wears the rank of Navy Lt on his right lapel and the rank of Lt Commander on his left lapel, both ranks in clear sight. He appears again when he announces that Washington DC has gone dark. (00:30:20 - 00:37:30)
Corrected entry: In the scene where the Army is removing the historical documents from the National Archives you get a good look at the glass-encased Declaration of Independence. The one shown in the film has dark printing and is extremely easy to read. The real document looks nothing like this (I've seen it several times in the archives) - the printing is faded throughout and the parchment is not uniformly brown, as it is depicted in the movie.
