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.

This is part of the Resident Evil Collection, which has the first four films in the series, with extras for all, though not quite in equal amounts. It's off the third in the series. The four chapters come to 31 minutes total. It consists of clips of the picture(and the first two), interviews with cast and crew, and behind the scenes footage.
Alice Vision/Pre-Production is 7 minutes long. It goes into the approach for this entry when compared to the first two, making it distinct from the by-this-point common city zombie piece, the Mad Max look(in part since there were a lot of kids who hadn't watched those...unlike today), how prepared Mulcahy came into it, opting for daylight not nighttime and contrasting the desert with the high-tech Umbrella facility.
The Big Bang/Shooting RE:E (yes, spelled like that) is 14 minutes long. They talk about the ups and downs of the heat, the choice of director, making the lab similar to a bunker, having Anderson on set and using his experience with the games, Alice's knives. I learned that I like Linden Ashby much more than I like his Johnny Cage.
Bigger, Faster, Stronger/The Undead Evolve is 6 minutes long. The Super and Desert Undead(and briefly, the Tyrant) are explored extensively, especially their look.
Vegas Visual Effects/Miniatures is 5 minutes long. It touches upon achieving grand scale via this type of FX. Paul acknowledges his luck in making this many, and in such a short time. He does say "it's not like we've been making the same movie over and over again", so he still doesn't have complete self-awareness.
I recommend this to anyone who wants to know more about the flick. 7/10
