Alice awakes in Raccoon City, only to find it has become infested with zombies and monsters. With the help of Jill Valentine and Carlos Olivera, Alice must find a way out of the city before it is destroyed by a nuclear missile.
While still out to destroy the evil Umbrella Corporation, Alice joins a group of survivors living in a prison surrounded by the infected who also want to relocate to the mysterious but supposedly unharmed safe haven known only as Arcadia.
Paul W.S. Anderson
Years after the Raccoon City disaster, Alice is on her own; aware that she has become a liability and could endanger those around her, she is struggling to survive and bring down the Umbrella Corporation led by the sinister Albert Wesker and head researcher Dr. Isaacs. Meanwhile, traveling through the Nevada Desert and the ruins of Las Vegas, Carlos Olivera, L.J., and new survivors K-Mart, Claire Redfield, and Nurse Betty must fight to survive extinction against hordes of zombies, killer crows and the most terrifying creatures created as a result of the deadly T-Virus that has killed millions.

(at around 7 mins) Raccoon City is clearly Detroit, Michigan from the graphic about 6-7 minutes into the film. The Detroit river and Belle Isle are clearly discernible, as is the half moon shaped industrial park to the North (towards the left in the film). See more »
(at around 1h 26 mins) During the scene in which Tokyo appears, there are several Japanese signs that just have random Japanese ideograms completely irrelevant to what should be there. See more »
Take a sample of her blood, and then get rid of that.

Of all movies made of video game franchises, Resident Evil is by it's own right a fairly entertaining series of films. The games have always been a standout amongst others, so why shouldn't the film adaptations.
Extinction is by far the best of the three. Mulcahy was the right choice of director for this one. His atmospheric eye and fearless sense of close-ups take you for a 1 1/2 hour ride (that doesn't feel like you wasted your 8 bucks).
The attention to detail and finally plot that that resolutes, not to mention the film's tight editing make this an entertaining ride.
You finally care about why this event has happened, and most importantly you have characters who seem to care as well.
Not a perfect film, but reasonably close. Will there be a fourth installment? I am pretty sure we all know the answer to that.
Who will take the responsibility from here? That we must wait to see...
