Storyline

Alice awakens from a terrible sleep to find her worst fears realized--the bloodthirsty Undead, which she and the now-annihilated squad of elite military fought to destroy, have been unleashed on the city that surrounds the secret facility of the Umbrella Corporation. Discovering she was an Umbrella experiment, Alice has been bio-genetically enhanced with new strengths, senses and dexterity--and she will need them. In the heart of the ravaged Raccoon City, a small group of uninfected people, including Jill Valentine, a recently demoted member of Raccoon City's elite Special Tactics and Rescue Services team, and Umbrella Corporation Security Officer Carlos Oliveira, fight for their lives against swarms of Undead and the deadlier and faster Lickers. Running out of luck and resources, the group is rescued by Alice, and they begin to wage an exhilarating battle to survive and escape before the Umbrella Corporation erases its experiment from the face of the earth. Their only hope lies ... Written by Anthony Pereyra {hypersonic91@yahoo.com}

Trivia

The film was originally entitled 'Resident Evil: Nemesis' after the third game in the 'Resident Evil' (aka 'Biohazard') video game series, of the same name, which had a similar plot. The title was later changed to 'Resident Evil: Apocalypse' after the release (and subsequent box-office failure) of Star Trek: Nemesis (2002). See more »

Goofs

(at around 1h 9 mins) The size of the metal spike on the side of the building changes as the Nemesis is impaled on it. The shape, length, and orientation of the spike also changes from the time the Nemesis snaps off the metal rod to the time he is impaled. See more »

Better than the first
9 October 2004 | by filmbuff1970See all my reviews

I liked the first movie, it was good average entertainment. I think this one is slightly better than the first, mainly because this one is scarier. I admit i preferred the zombies in the Dawn of the dead remake but thats because they were fast. The script is no great shakes, the cast are OK. Though the bad guy seemed like he was doing a poor man's Schindler. The FX was fairly decent and the movie never becomes boring, it's too fast paced for that. Some of the sets were obviously based on the games. At least it made me jump out of my seat a few times. Needless to say a third one seems very likely but i like where there going with one scene reminding me of Brian De Palma's The Fury. 6 out of 10
