Trivia

Ada Wong's red dress is akin to the dress the character sports in the video games. It was also the inspiration for the similar dress that Alice wears in the first Resident Evil film. 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 lot of people died. The trouble was, they didn't stay dead. The computer that controlled the Hive was a state-of-the-art artificial intelligence: the Red Queen. The Red Queen ...

It is not even close to what you will be expecting!!
15 September 2012 | by (New York, United States) – See all my reviews

I was eagerly looking forward to the 5th installment of this series and I am sorry to say that I have been really let down! Apart from the once in a while visuals, the movie has not been able to get even close to expectations. The first 10 minutes of the movie and you will start feeling disconnected from the movie already not caring at all what is gonna happen in the next scene. After resident evil 3 & 4, I was expecting a lot out of this installment and from Paul W.S. Anderson but he has not been able to live up the mark at all. The action scenes rather than being nail-biting, turned out to be hilarious and funny. There isn't a single moment in the movie where you are actually glued to screen. Milla Jovovich looks pretty as always, but that won't save the movie. All others have done a horrible job with their acting, especially Sienna Guillory. I would say that the only reason you would want to watch this movie is if you are a fan of the resident evil series and you don't mind wasting your money and time for the sake of this series.
