** Sure, US Army, go through the trouble of building and elaborate containment area for potentially infected survivors, and put in a confirmed carrier of the virus and proceed ''not to post any guards around her'', as well as granting regular civilians unrestricted access to said containment areas! What could possibly go wrong?

** Sure, kids, break out of the safe area and sneak out into a deserted, ransacked Britain just 'cause. It's not like a quarantine is important or anything, and it's not like they ''told you exactly why they needed a quarantine.''

* ContestedSequel: While the film was generally well-received, there's a significant portion of fans who feel it paled in comparison to its prequel.
* IdiotPlot: Sure, go make out with your wife. Never mind the freaky eye or what she's been doing for the past months. Not to mention she probably knew that she was a carrier at that point or could kill an infected. Kudos to the military who leave her room unguarded, it's not like she carries a virus that killed dozens of millions the last time or anything.
* InferredHolocaust: [[spoiler:The infection has reached France]] by the end.
** [[spoiler: And assuming Andy's the one who spread it there-- and he probably is-- he and Tammy are likely dead.]]
* TheScrappy: The two kids in the movie. Not only were they largely responsible for the new outbreak of Rage Virus in Britain, but to make matters worse [[spoiler: their selfishness causes the rest of the world to get infected, too]]. And yet through all of this, they still are [[spoiler: [[EverybodyDies the only ones who make it out alive]]]]. Ask pretty much any group of people who have seen the movie, and you'll find at least one person who was angry that [[BrokenAesop the kids didn't die for their bad behavior]].

* TheWoobie: Alice cannot catch a break in this movie. Her husband abandons her when an Infected separates them, and he just books it instead of trying to save her. She is immune, however, and flees back to her house in London where she stays in hiding for months. She is eventually found by the military, who bring her back to District 1 and plan on killing her to run tests on her corpse to find a cure. Beforehand, however, Don visits her to beg for her forgiveness for fleeing, then kisses her...[[spoiler: which causes him to become Infected and kill her in the most drawn out and painful death in the movie, all while she is strapped to a table. Then her body is lit on fire from the firebombing.]] Good lord.
** Don for some. He blames himself for [[spoiler: abandoning his wife to the Infected and then having to lie to his children about that. Add to the fact that he reunited with Alice, only to get infected, kill her, and chase down his children]]. Fuck..

* WhatAnIdiot: See IdiotPlot aboveSure, Don, kiss your infected wife, never mind she's an unaffected carrier of a virus that turns you into a raging murderous monster more or less instantaneously. Also, kudos to the military for leaving her room unguarded.

** Incinerating the infected area (and, KillEmAll) is, in fact, the '''only''' sane method for dealing with a highly infectious disease spreading through a population. Once a virus (or other biological weapon-like disease) breaks out of quarantine into any substantial population, there's simply no other way to contain it. Physical geographic barriers (such as Britain being an island) can limit the possible spread, but, inside those limits, it's simply impossible to stop via normal selective targeting. '''All''' militaries use the methods described in the movie when dealing with that sort of situation, and it's not only the only effective strategy, it's also the only ''moral'' one - sacrifice some to protect many. Of course, given the IdiotBall the US military had been holding up until then, it shouldn't have gotten to that point, but, once it did, ordering the soldiers to kill everyone (including uninfected) is the Right Thing.
