I Am Legend

Continuity mistake: At the start, Robert Neville drives into some yellow poles only to drive into them again in the following shot.

Revealing mistake: When the taxi goes over the edge to capture Dr. Neville, you can see that the underbody of the car as it goes over is a flat painted surface and not the underside of what should be there (i.e., muffler, gas tank, etc.).

Factual error: The grenade Robert Neville uses at the end of the movie has a blue and brown colored lever. This feature is only used on the M69 practice grenade and not the real M67. The lethal grenade lever is completely green.

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?

Answer: I thought people jumped on another helicopter causing it to spin out of control, and that one crashed into their helicopter.

Answer: It was the people hanging onto the helicopter (combined with the already hazardous conditions).

Jason Hoffman

No it was because zombies got on it and killed the pilot.

Question: How did Will Smith hook up the radio? Did he use electricity? He can't have used a generator, that would have created too much noise. Also why is he on a dock? Wouldn't a higher place be more suitable? Is it just for effect?

Sarah Hicks

Chosen answer: He's been in New York for a few years now since the break out, ample time to scavenge any radio broadcast stations for equipment and probably cannibalize them at his home. That or just set up a power source at a radio station and set it to broadcast. The details are not shown in the movie. And the dock is the most logical place for people to come to given the safety of the sea, as well as many ships were loaded with survivors that were to stay out for a while and then return. Likely to come to the docks. Or anybody else that was traveling across the nation might avoid a land route as it's safer to go by boat on water. And don't forget this is New York, most of the city is surrounded by water anyway.
