While filming a fight scene with Milla 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 Jovovich visited some of the actors in the hospital out of respect. See more »
When Ada explains how she killed the operatives in the central command station, a security-tape replay shows Ada standing in the center of the room shooting outwards. But when Alice first enters the room, there are glass walls in front of each workstation, with blood splatters on the inside.
This would imply that the workers were shot from behind. If Ada had shot from the center of the room, the glass walls would have been shattered. See more »
My name is Alice. I worked for the Umbrella Corporation, the largest and most powerful commercial entity in the world.

I love the Resident Evil films. Sure, they are campy, but they are always fun and are usually a great action flick.
Retribution is absolutely not the case. Does it have lots of action? Yes, but when you have such a weak plot line as is showcased here not even GOOD action can save it. Even the action scenes themselves are horrendous, with mediocre at best special effects in most parts and ludicrous scenarios that never play well off of one another, not to mention the 20 page script for the entire film. The only lines delivered all seem like they were a Jr. High film project, and add nothing to the story except one liners and catchphrases.
All in all, this film is easily on my top 10 worst films of all time list, and I doubt many things will surpass it in the future.
