Storyline

Alice awakens from a terrible sleep to find her worst fears realized--the bloodthirsty Undead, which she and the now-annihilated squad of elite military fought to destroy, have been unleashed on the city that surrounds the secret facility of the Umbrella Corporation. Discovering she was an Umbrella experiment, Alice has been bio-genetically enhanced with new strengths, senses and dexterity--and she will need them. In the heart of the ravaged Raccoon City, a small group of uninfected people, including Jill Valentine, a recently demoted member of Umbrella Corp's elite Special Tactics and Rescue Services team, and S.T.A.R.S team leader Carlos Oliveira, fight for their lives against swarms of Undead and the deadlier and faster Lickers. Running out of luck and resources, the group is rescued by Alice, and they begin to wage an exhilarating battle to survive and escape before the Umbrella Corporation erases its experiment from the face of the earth. Their only hope lies somewhere within ... Written by Anthony Pereyra {hypersonic91@yahoo.com}

Trivia

The film contains many visual and thematic references to the games. Here's what references are seen from the games in storyline chronological order:
  • All Games: There is a shot near the end of the film of Alice's eye close up. This is a reference to the first game in the series - the close up eye shot is the logo/title screen of the games, a white goddess statue can be seen in the church, Goddess statues always play a big role in the puzzles of all Biohazard games.


  • Resident Evil Ø (2002): Alice kills the Lickers in the church in a bullet time effect identical to Billy Killing the Leech Queen.


  • Resident Evil (1996) In the opening scene with the weather map and the ending, both mention the Arklay Mountains. This is where the mansion in the original game was located.


  • Resident Evil (2002) (Gamecube remake) Terri's death is recorded by her fallen camera, as is Joseph's death in the intro in the remake of the original game.


  • Resident Evil 2 (1998) Alice's visit to the gun shop may be a slight reference to Resident Evil 2, in which Kendo's Gun Shop is one of the first locations a player visits, The helicopter that delivers Nemesis' weapons is similar in look to the helicopter that delivered Mr. X in Resident Evil 2, Angela Ashford plays a character similar to Shirey Birkin from Resident Evil 2.


  • Resident Evil 3: Nemesis (1999): The sequence in which RPD members are surrounded by zombies at an intersection is taken almost shot for shot from an FMV in Resident Evil 3 (the most noticeably similar shot is the slow zoom in on the police helmet), The character of Jill Valentine wears the same outfit she wore in Resident Evil: 3, Zombies also rise from their graves in Resident Evil: 3, Jill also uses gas stoves to create an explosion in Resident Evil 3: Nemesis, Jill,Terri, Alice and Peyton hide out in a red cable-car, in Resident Evil 3 Jill, Carlos, Nicholai and Mikhial also hide out in a red cable-car and use it to get to the Clock tower. And in both Resident Evil 3 and the Movie, Nemesis shoots down a helicopter with his rocket launcher.


  • Resident Evil Code: Veronica (2000): The sequence in which Alice runs down a hallway while a helicopter shoots out the windows is identical to the opening cinema in Resident Evil: Code Veronica, Ashford is the name of the family that created Umbrella, as told in Resident Evil: Code Veronica, Alice's superhuman abilities are similar to those exhibited by Albert Wesker in Resident Evil: Code Veronica, Milla Jovovich's move in which she drops her handgun and grabs it just before hitting the ground was lifted directly from Resident Evil Code: Veronica (2000) in which Claire Redfield pulls this in the opening movie and takes out a room full of guards.


  • Miscellaneous: The idea of Dr. Ashford pulling strings to save people inside a zombie-ridden area contains shades of Trent, a character from the Resident Evil books, written by S.D. Perry. Another similarity is that Trent's parents, like Dr. Ashford, created the T-Virus for benevolent purposes before it was hijacked by Umbrella.

Goofs

The T virus is transmitted by biting the living and infecting them, yet the buried corpses in the cemetery reanimated. It couldn't have been that they died from bites and were buried, as many are in a state of advanced decomposition, and the movie is set 24 hours after the first movie. See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
Alice: My name is Alice. I worked for the Umbrella Corporation, the largest and most powerful commercial entity in the world. I was head of security at a secret high-tech facility, The Hive, a giant underground laboratory developing experimental viral weaponry. But there was an incident. The virus escaped and everybody died. Trouble was... they didn't stay dead.

Two babes with big guns killing zombies
19 February 2005 | by (Los Angeles, California) – See all my reviews

*SPOILER ALERT* *SPOILER ALERT*

Lethal megababe Alice, (Milla Jovovich), is back. The Hive gets reopened for some reason. The zombies take advantage of the human's blunder and pour out into Racoon City. Alice and another hot chick decide to bring the war to the zombies. The rest of the movie is one long fight scene with zombie dogs, slobbering creatures and a big monster with a rocket launcher all wanting to waste the killer babe squad.

While "Resident Evil 2" is light on plot, it is heavy on kills, explosions and various other forms of mayhem. I definitely felt I got my money's worth. There are really only two differences between this movie and the original "Resident Evil". One, this movie introduces a new monster, the Nemesis. It's a big monster with bad teeth wearing an overcoat and wielding a rocket launcher. The other difference is that they added another hot woman to the zombie killing mix. Alice needed some babe backup. Overall, I was pleased with this one. It's worth a look.
