Her deadly battle with the Umbrella Corporation reaches new heights, but Alice gets some unexpected help from an old friend. A new lead that promises a safe haven from the Undead takes them to Los Angeles, but when they arrive the city is overrun by thousands of Undead - and Alice and her comrades are about to step into a deadly trap.Written by
After seeing footage of James Cameron's Avatar (2009), Paul W.S. Anderson was sold on the idea of making the film in 3D. He and his crew spent two weeks in pre-production learning how to properly use the 3D camera system. See more »
(at around 1h 5 mins) The Axeman wields an axe which is composed of a blade and an engine block on its heel. Even if the Axeman had superhuman strength, the total mass of the axe that's he's wielding has to exceed his own, meaning he would move in the direction of travel every time that he swung the axe. This doesn't occur.
This is especially apparent when the floor in the shower room is wet and when the Axeman is kneeling and then hurls his axe. See more »
My name is Alice. I worked for the Umbrella Corporation in a secret laboratory developing experimental viral weaponry. There was an incident. A virus escaped. Everybody died. Trouble was, they didn't stay dead. This was the start of an apocalypse that would sweep the entire world. The men responsible for this disaster took refuge underground and continued to experiment with the deadly T-Virus. They felt secure in their high-tech fortress. But they were wrong.

A disappointed fan, a mediocre movie and the 3D was a fuzzy mess
I'm a huge fan of Milla Jovovich and the Resident Evil movies. The last one - "Resident Evil: Extinction" - I thought was a great movie and the best in the series so far.
So I had to see this latest installment, what a disappointing and mediocre movie it turned out to be. The 3D was so fuzzy and distracting throughout the film but even if it hadn't been in fuzzy 3D it still was badly directed and poorly written, with hardly any of the signature action scenes, and all the actors were very pitiable and amateurish, with an exceptionally lame lead villain. Most of the action was blah and boring, in routine slow mo cuts. Don't go to see this movie if you want good or creative action scenes or an interesting story.
Most of the actors made no impression whatsoever, with the exception of Milla and Wentworth Miller of "Prison Break" fame. And even Wentworth Miller was given little to do, he didn't have but a handful of lines in the movie and it was a waste of his considerable talent. I really hope that he does better movies and roles in the future. I think he could become a major movie star, but not with appearing in crappy movies like this.
I am giving it a generous 5 rating, and that is from a fans perspective. If I wasn't a fan I would give this movie a 3.
Please let the next Resident Evil have a different director than this sub par effort had, and please let it not be in horrifying 3D.
