Trivia

While filming a fight scene with Milia Jovovich, a mishap occurred causing 16 actors to fall off a scaffolding and sent to the hospital. As a result, filming was shutdown for a few days and Mili Jovovich visited some of the actors in the hospital out of respect. See more »

Goofs

During the attack on the Arcadia, Alice is seen shooting quarters from her 12 gauge shotgun through the windshield of one of the tilt-rotor aircraft, killing the pilot. However, the diameter of a quarter is 0.955 inches; therefore, it would not fit in a 12 gauge shotgun, as the diameter of the shotgun barrel is only 0.729 inches. In addition, not only would a projectile such as this never penetrate an armored windshield as is found on tilt-rotor aircraft, the glass "spider-webs" with high energy impacts due to layered plastic laminates, and doesn't shatter, like plate glass would.

Quotes

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 called the Hive, a giant underground laboratory developing experimental, viral weaponry. There was an incident. A virus escaped.

A 2 hour video game cut scene
13 September 2012 | by (Thailand) – See all my reviews

Not sure if this movie is only for videogamers, but I can't see anyone else caring to sit through it. The movie made it quite clear, early on, that there would be no complicated plot lines or character development. And the dialogue was equally simplistic. The lines sounded something like this - go to the 3rd mountain and collect 20 coins and 3 golden power boosters. One quickly sensed this was not a movie at all, rather a simple video game cut scene. Also problematical were the incredibly goofy scenes with thousands of bullets aimed point blank at the heroes and all of them missing. It just takes all of the fun out of a movie when there is absolutely no sense of danger to the heroes.

On the plus side, the action sequences were very well shot and the cgi was first class. That said, it just wasn't enough to make this reviewer glad to be sitting in the audience
