A virus has escaped in a secret facility called "The Hive," turning the staff into hungry zombies and releasing the mutated Lab "Animals" that they were studying. The complex computer shuts down the base to prevent infection. The parent corporation sends in an elite military unit, where they meet Alice, who is suffering from amnesia due to exposure to nerve gas. The military team must shut down the computer and get out, fighting their way past zombies, mutants, and the computer itself, before the virus escapes and infects the rest of the world. Alice must also come to terms with her slowly-returning memories.Written by
(at around 1h 30 mins) The banner on the bus in the end of the movie shows several toys on the right, among them a teddy bear. The text on the left reads: "At Umbrella Medical, we try to make teddy a little softer". Along the bottom, it reads: "Umbrella Medical - Sheltering Your Family". See more »
(at around 1h 15 mins) When the zombie lab tech attacks Spence in the water filled laboratory, he fires several rounds from a large caliber semi-automatic handgun without a silencer. The weapon appears to be a .45-caliber Colt 1911. It should make a resounding "boom" when fired, especially in that small space. Although there is a subdued "boom," the shots sound much more like those of silenced weapon. See more »
At the beginning of the 21st century, the Umbrella Corporation had become the largest commercial entity in the United States. Nine out of every ten homes contain its products. Its political and financial influence is felt everywhere. In public, it is the world's leading supplier of computer technology, medical products, and healthcare. Unknown, even to its own employees, its massive profits are generated by military technology, genetic experimentation, and viral weaponry.

One of, if not the, greatest video game adaptations ever made. That went on to launch a kickass zombie franchise. The storyline is well developed and the CGI and cinematography are amazing for their age. Acting is decent and the characters are well cast. I mean Jovovich slays as Alice.
