Whether their actions make any sense in the context of the story is completely ignored. There is no excuse for this. We are not talking about major changes either. You could come up with minor changes to the script, in dialogue and character response to environment. Spending maybe 5 minutes on each scene and develop a new script with good action and horror that was also intelligent. They spent massive money on this movie and for one days pay of a good writer they could have made a great film. It's hard to understand how this kind of thing happens, and it happens all the time in hollywood.
Spot on comments, billyd60!
