Time is ticking for captain Jackson Elis as he interrogates a mysterious man with ties to a bio terrorist group holding a team of B.S.A.A. operatives hostage. Foxtrot team is sent in to rescue them through the zombie infested Red Falls.
This is found on the Resident Evil Collection, which has the first four films in the series, with extras for all, though not quite in equal amounts. It's off the second of them, as the release year, if not really the title, would suggest. All the elements are here: film clips, interviews with people on both sides of the camera, and behind the scenes footage. The running time comes to a total of 50 minutes, and is split into 6 parts. Each has separate credits.
Game Plan is 12 and a half minutes long. They talk about what's new, after the original, as the first sequel. Its relationship with the games. The cast and major crew are discussed, with the expected love-fest. Milla's intensity(they call her crazy, and it's backed up by showing her jumping in place between takes, and, what can only be described as 'howling like a coyote').
Running, Jumping, Fighting is 10 and a half minutes long. This one is about stunts, as you could probably guess. A few of the stars already knew martial arts, which helped. The helicopter stuff. The forwards-repelling down the building for 60 feet. Nemesis' 70 pound suit.
Zombie Choreography is 9 and minutes long. The movement was approached by getting dancers, reasoning out how the virus takes over the body, and training the dozens of people in exactly how to move(and how not to... no club feet, etc.). "There's nothing going on, basically".
Building Raccoon City is 8 minutes long. Set design. Getting the look right. How accommodating Toronto was, and how much it looked like what they wanted. The running along the corridor, dodging gunfire.
Big Guns is 5 and a half minutes long. The prop guns are gone into. Jovovich hilariously, and clearly facetiously, mocks the people living nearby, "oh, it's 11, you have to stop shooting guns now".
Smoke and Mirrors is 11 minutes long. It deals with the visual effects. They used pretty much every type of them. They tried to use animatronics on some of the Lickers. The texture on them is that of raw, bloody meat. The dogs.
I recommend it to anyone who wants to know more about the production. 7/10
